You see a bullet racing towards you. Seeing how easy it would be to dodge, you scoff at it and prepare to- hey wait a minute! You can't duck?! Congratulations, you've just encountered an oddly handicapped hero! Often in video games, though mainly older ones, you would be incapable of doing normal actions, with the most common ones being ducking and jumping.
