Quotes: Can't Catch Up
Guru: I see something within this young man (about Krillin). Strength yet untapped. Power yet unleashed. Now hold still as I unleash the valley of strength hidden deep within! There! I have unlocked your potential!
Krillin: ... I don't feel that different.
Guru: It wasn't that much.
Krillin: Huh. So this is my full potential?
Guru: Yes.
Krillin: So it's...
Guru: All downhill from here.
Krillin: ...Like Yamcha.
Guru: I don't know what this "Yamcha" is but it sounds disappointing.

Gohan: With this power-up, I'm now as strong as you were when we fought on Earth!
Vegeta: Congratulations, you're still weaker than the last 3 guys I killed.
Gohan: Wow. I now know what it's like to feel like Krillin.
Krillin: Sucks, doesn't it?

Tommy: Wow. Those new Zords are amazing.
Alpha 5: Yes, they are - but don't be sad. We'll find some way to bring your powers up to full.

Karkat: HOW MUCH BULLSHIT IS IT THAT WE'RE PRETTY MUCH THE ONLY TWO ASSHOLES LEFT WHO CAN'T FLY?!
Kanaya: It Really Is Such Bullshit

"Instead of Lex, the guy who actually acts like Lex Luthor as we know him is, of course, Lionel. He’s the one who could save Lana easily, but doesn’t do it out of pure spite. So once again, this is a show where Lionel is Lex, Green Arrow is Batman, Lois is Jimmy Olsen, Clark is 'The Blur,' and the guy who flies around and saves Lois from falling out of buildings is Hawkman...That’s the core of this show’s insanity, I think: They have a Lex and a Clark, but the way the show’s set up, neither one can do the stuff Lex Luthor and Clark Kent do. So they have to invent other characters like Lionel to fill those roles."
Chris Sims and David Uzumeri on Smallville, "Lexmas"

"You know, with talented people. They draw people to themselves, and without even trying to, they tear them to shreds. The closer you are to them, the more viciously you'll be torn apart. They're living in a completely different world above us. One that us normal people can't reach. In a world that we'll never see. A world above the clouds."
Jin Mitaka Deconstructing the trope, Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
