Much like the Informed Ability, an Informed Flaw is a Fatal Flaw that simply doesn't have any real effect on the event or character. It can come up in one of two forms:
The narrative tells us about a flaw, whether it be through a character, the narration, or some other source. The flaw then doesn't materialize and nobody would have ever thought of it if the segment describing said flaw was removed.
Alternatively, the flaw in question might be showcased as an Establishing Character Moment. After their first scene (where it will usually be pretty contrived and blunt), it will evaporate for the rest of the work. Think Compressed Vice, only compressed to a single scene and not given any natural resolution.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })In either case, the defining part is the total abandonment of the flaw after its introduction, with it playing no role and thus having no importance. Often, it comes about because a character is decided to be too unrealistic, so they add in a token flaw or two to add some flavor. Other times, it's just to pad out some of the length. However, most of the time, it's a result of careless rewrites.
Infallible Babble ensures that it's never a case where the characters talking about the flaw are misinformed, or spiteful.
This is often seen as a Mary Sue trait, especially when it's a flaw that would actually be pretty awesome were it not for the consequences (e.g. substance abuse, nymphomania, etc.).
Clumsiness is by far the most popular of the informed flaws, since it can be showcased once (so that another character can heroically save them) and then doesn't affect the plot or actually detract from the character's personality or motivations for the rest of the narrative. Alternatively it can be used a few times for comedic effect but can also be ignored as the plot demands.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Disabilities, especially milder, inconsistent or not readily visible disabilities, very often turn into informed flaws. They are milked for Angst at various moments, without interfering with the character's ability to do the things the plot expects them to do.
Remember that Tropes Are Tools - many examples on the page are negative, but that does not make the trope negative in nature. (See Playing with a Trope.) A common variation that is NOT the result of poor writing is where the character believes that they have a flaw (e.g. a big nose) because of, say, past teasing or bullying, but to any viewer, it is obvious that such a flaw is nonexistent.
A Sub-Trope of Informed Attribute and Show, Don't Tell, and a Super-Trope of Hollywood Homely, Hollywood Pudgy, Hollywood Dateless, Gorgeous Gorgon, Informed Loner, Tin Man, and Designated Villain. Related to Informed Ability, and Suetiful All Along. Contrast with I Am Not Left-Handed, Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass, and Obfuscating Stupidity.

GONE series:
Diana is apparently a "slut" who really gets around, which is admitted by even Diana herself. In fact, in previous books she even wears the label proudly despite many characters (Astrid, Dekka, Brianna, and Drake) thinking ill of her for it and making it her main identifier in the series, apart from her being "beautiful and snarky". However, she's only been in a romantic relationship with Caine for the duration of the series, and spent a lot of time declining his advances too. She's never cheated in the series or flirted with anyone but Caine, leading some fans to think this reputation is unfair. Unfortunately can be a case of Truth in Television, seeing as some young girls tend to get labelled by their peers as "sluts" based on appearance and demeanor rather than actions.
Sam's flaw is how he's "always trying to play the hero" and how it constantly backfires on him despite him doing the right thing...It seems to be more self-pity in recent installments of the series (reasons for the self-pity ranging from having to be the leader, not being the leader, everything going wrong, nothing going wrong and it being boring, his girlfriend refusing to be pressured into sex and repercussions from cheating). But he's the nice guy who does the right thing always and gets disproportionate retribution from his godly sacrifices.

In Shinrai: Broken Beyond Despair, Rie, by her own admission, says that she can't bring herself to suspect her friends of wrongdoing, even when someone turns up dead and it is likely a murder. It ends up being downplayed, since after Taiko (the guy Rie likes) indicates that he's suspicious of Runa (Rie's best friend), Rie and Taiko end up feuding. That being said, Runa's actually innocent, so while Rie may not be entirely rational when it comes to Runa, that doesn't change the fact that she's right.

We're told that Tex Murphy's Love Interest Chelsee is a mutant, but unlike the other mutants featured in the game who all have noticeable physical deformities, Chelsee looks like a normal human. In fact, she's even rather pretty. Lampshaded, in that it's mentioned in-game that nobody knows what her mutation actually is, and she's not telling.

Juliette Barnes over in/on Nashville is constantly being described as a bad singer while Rayna Jaymes is ostensibly the real thing... but Hayden Panettiere (Juliette) is actually a pretty good singer, whereas Television Without Pity's view of Connie Britton (Rayna) is even shared by some (though not all) of her staunchest fans - "to put it politely, she cannot fucking sing."

Redwall: Some mentions of the Bloodwrath mention that those cursed with it can't tell friend from foe and end up attacking their own allies without realizing it. Except that we've never seen any evidence that this could happen, making the Bloodwrath more awesome than cursed. It's possible everyone realizes that one should stay out of the way of people like that.

Sonic the Hedgehog:
Various sources state that Sonic can be a jerk at times. This contrasts with his actual in-game portrayal. He is always portrayed as a caring, friendly, if somewhat snarky guy.
While more a case of Characterization Marches On, bios sometimes refer to Tails being childlike and hyperactive, despite his personality being even more mature and rational than Sonic's for the large part.

Homer Simpson of The Simpsons fame is frequently portrayed as being seriously, even morbidly obese, even though he has a relatively average body type compared to other people in Springfield (his established height and weight of 6' and 239 pounds technically qualifies him as medically obese, but not by much and nowhere near the guidelines for morbid obesity). Apu, Krusty, and Dr. Hibbert, to name three, are just as fat as Homer though they're never portrayed as such, while Barney, Mayor Quimby, and Chief Wiggum are considerably fatter and the Comic Book Guy is by far the fattest of them all. However, one episode had Springfield declared the fattest town in the USA, so there's at least some acknowledgement. As the whole of Springfield is overweight, this is not so much "informed" but more normal for the town.

In Heroes, for all of Volume 3's talk about Sylar's uncontrollable "hunger", he seems perfectly capable of hanging around and interacting with other supers without popping open their brains to see what makes them tick. This seems to be the case even after he turns back fully to the side of evil (he never chows down on Luke, for example, despite on multiple occasions being given a good reason to do so. Ditto for Doyle, who he must have been lugging around for more than a day). Peter Petrelli, on the other hand, pretty much chops open the head of every single person he meets after acquiring Sylar's ability, despite (unlike Sylar) receiving no apparent tangible benefit from doing so. This becomes even more baffling when Sylar learns how to take powers without killing but decides to do so anyway (it's fun for him), leading one to assume the hunger talk was nonsense and Peter is so thick he felt the compulsion because he thought he would.

Naruto's orange outfit—tons of fanfics go out of their way to mock it, talk about how impractical it is for a ninja, and point out how insanely bright it is, and generally have him replace it with an outfit the author considers more practical (generally all-black, which is even worse for stealth since it stands out against anything). However, Naruto's getup isn't much brighter than what everyone else wears, and as canon shows it hasn't hindered his stealth ability.

In Origins, a Mass Effect/Star Wars/Borderlands/Halo Massive Multiplayer Crossover, Admiral Allison Nimitz really, really doesn't like working with the Pandorans and inhabitants of the wider galaxy because they're "uncivilized". She does anyway, claiming the Godzilla Threshold has been crossed, but given everything that's happened (and indeed looking at things Trans-Galactic Republic forces participated in previously, such as at a minimum ignoring tyranny spreading as a result of their technology), her complaints fall flat. Further, the actions of the [Mega Corps make sense in their own universe, which is even discussed by a Trans-Galactic Republic captain, alluding to "blue and orange paint".

In John Ringo's Paladin of Shadows series, the main character is said to have degenerative injuries from years in the SEALs that forced him off the teams and out of the Navy itself. Precisely, "degenerative damage in half the major joints in his body and a back that was compacted enough for a fifty-year-old," none of which slows him down at any point. He needs to stretch at the start of the first book, he wakes up stiff halfway through the book, it gets a brief mention once or twice in the second or third books and then is never mentioned again. This wouldn't be that big a deal, but he's not lounging on a beach sipping a drink, he's running and gunning with people half his age.

Broadside, of Transformers: Generation 1, is stated in his bio to be a complete nervous wreck. He's a Triple Changer whose altmodes are a space jet and an aircraft carrier, but he's both afraid of heights and gets seasick easily. You'd think this'd make him near-useless, right? Well, not really; Broadside's fears have been ignored by pretty much every bit of media. In fact, given his (usually) massive size and his membership into the elite and high-risk Wreckers in the comics, Broadside's pretty consistently shown to be the opposite of scared or ineffectual.

In Harry Potter, it's established in the first book that the eponymous protagonist was a potential candidate for Slytherin, which he fears because Slytherin has historically been an evil house, and he would have probably wound up there if he didn't explicitly request otherwise. But over the course of the series, it's tricky to say if Harry ever shows the traditional Slytherin virtues. He didn't know or care about Fantastic Racism at that point, and thought it was cruel and pointless even when he heard about it. He's not shrewd, cunning, or ruthless; in fact, his major flaws are that he's hotheaded, impulsive, and cares too much. On top of that, the major Slytherin flaw is that Ambition Is Evil, but not only is Harry essentially a rich celebrity who has little to be ambitious for, but he consistently treats this as an annoying burden that he'd prefer not to have. Unless the Sorting Hat was picking up exclusively on the Voldemort parts of him, the whole concept never really got demonstrated.

The Divine Comedy places Marco Lombardi in Purgatory to do penance for his sins, but everything Marco says and does demonstrates a strong sense of virtue and public responsibility. Since we know nothing about Marco outside of the Comedy, there is no indication as to why Dante choose to put him in Purgatory instead of in Heaven.

Therese of For Better or for Worse was repeatedly described as shallow, petty, materialistic and whatever else Lynn Johnson could use to paint her as the villain in Anthony's marriage. However, she rarely got any panel time that involved anything other than complaining to Anthony about Liz - whom she turned out to have good reason to dislike. When she was shown interacting with other characters, she came off as little more than a normal, if somewhat removed person, and some thought her actions were justified when details of their marriage came to light.

Jurassic World:
It's said that Zach "can be so mean" to his little brother, Gray. At worst, Zach is less compassionate than he could be regarding Gray's sadness over their parents' impending divorce, but when the Indominus Rex attacks, Zach's Big Brother Instinct kicks in.
Claire is also repeatedly told she's in over her head and out of her depth once the disaster starts. She in fact handles herself very well in the jungle, and never becomes The Load. While this could be written off as underestimating her because she's an office drone, she pulls off many heroics in the film but these largely get ignored by the other characters - who continue to treat her like a liability. Her shoes are also made fun of for being impractical (she's wearing high heels because she wasn't planning to get lost in the jungle that day) - but again she's able to walk and run in them quite easily when the occasion calls for it.

Rick and Morty: Morty is described as being "as stupid as Rick is smart", but the show never provides any evidence of his stupidity. He's smart enough to easily grasp scientific and philosophical concepts well beyond most people his age, like how the existence of a Multiverse with inter dimensional travel makes moot the concept of objective meaning in life. Furthermore, his plans are almost always more well-thought-out than those of any other character (albeit they usually fail anyway due to the Universe screwing him over), in "Total Rickall" he single-handedly solves a scientific mystery that was too difficult even for Impossible Genius Rick, and in "Mortynight Run" he manages to trick the mind-reading Fart which implies impressive mental discipline. The only time we've ever seen him do something to suggest that he's as stupid as is claimed — struggling with a basic math problem in "M. Night Shaym-Aliens" — was later revealed to be part of a simulation.

Zoro in One Piece: Grand Line 3.5 was supposed to have this. His Munchkin metagaming player, Cory, took a ton of flaws he never expected to come into play for extra feats, such as his Loyalty flaw not mattering because Zoro didn't answer to anyone... until he joined Luffy's crew. The GM has targeted some of his other intended-to-be-useless flaws as well, making the trope truly subverted.
On the other hand, the Game Master will often stack useless flaws onto Non Player Characters in order to give them enough skill points to keep up with his ridiculously powerful players. "I gave them Tourette's and made them mute" was an excuse given for how Buggy's goons had such good dodging skills.
Overlapping with Cursed with Awesome, it is apparently a "flaw" that a sleeping Zoro wakes up when anything out of the ordinary is nearby.

Hot Wheels Battle Force 5: Kryosis is said to be incredibly arrogant even more so than Stanford to whom he's an Evil Counterpart to. In the show itself he barely says much and usually functions to shoot at stuff. In his A Day in the Limelight webisode he's portrayed as a calculating warrior who manipulates his comrade to psyche him up for a fight, which he later explains and is thanked for.

In World of Warcraft, the Goblins have a reputation of things they invent blowing up in their faces, most notably their zeppelins, where everyone remarks about crashes and explosions, yet no matter how many times you ride them, nothing bad happens. In particular, the Azshara-Twilight Highlands zeppelin is described as a virtual deathtrap filled with volatile gas, fuel that "shouldn't even be moved, much less flown", and even the parachutes will most likely kill you. Yet the zeppelin is brought down by dragons near its destination.

In Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, each of the kids has to get over their flaws to reunite and save the world—Aire the Royal Brat, Brandt trying Ineffectual Loner, Jusqua getting more heart of gold in his Jerk With A. Yunita is variously described as The Load, prideful, or an Ineffectual Loner by the others, but since her experience in the first half is getting hit with the backlash of their issues, we never really see this apart from some subtle indications that are open to interpretation.

Garet in the original Golden Sun is mentioned by his little brother to be a compulsive glutton. This is never mentioned again in canon (though Tyrell gives it a Call-Back in Dark Dawn). Likewise, the official Nintendo strategy guide for The Lost Age directly describes Agatio as "... [lacking] substance between the ears". This is the guy who outwits Alex to his face, and later sabotages Isaac's party because he knows he won't win a fair fight with them. Lacking substance he ain't.

In Homestuck, multiple characters, including Aranea herself, comment that she always tends to bring conversations back to herself. While she is extremely talkative and literally addicted to explaining things, she mostly talks about other people, except when she's explaining who she is in her introduction. Calliope on the other hand is portrayed as modest even though she talks about herself far more than Aranea does.

Captain Marvel (2019) tells us early on that Carol is too emotional and prone to losing control of her powers because of it. Her emotions are never out of control and every use of her powers shows them being rather competent - save for one moment where she angrily destroys a Skrull's computer (and even that was a controlled outburst). While this could be a form of Gaslighting on the part of the Kree who want her to suppress her powers, there's no indicator that this affected her at all either.

Metal Gear:
Metal Gear Solid:
Meryl Silverburgh was mentioned as having had "special psychotherapy to destroy her interest in men". It didn't work. It's not even that Snake "cures" her — she's flirting with him from the very beginning, before she even knows who he is or what he's like, besides "handsome", and not five minutes after the supposed psychotherapy is mentioned, Psycho Mantis is telling Snake that she's fallen for him. The aim was probably to present her as someone who'd locked away all of her femininity in order to succeed as a soldier, but it has absolutely no effect on her character and absolutely no explanation is even attempted.
Psycho Mantis claims that Snake is even worse than the game's Big Bad, Liquid Snake. While Snake is undoubtedly a Jerkass, he's not without conscience and actually stopped World War III twice, while Liquid is trying to start it. There is no obvious indication in spoken dialogue or backstory to back up Mantis's claim.
Fox says that Snake "hasn't aged well", and while Snake does have accelerated aging which becomes very apparent in later games, in Metal Gear Solid he just appears like a handsome man in his early 30s, with all of the female characters noticing straight away how good-looking he is. Mind you, that's also Informed Attractiveness in itself, since, apart from the artworks used in the Codec and Briefing, his face is an immobile, low-poly block with no visible eyes. Still, his face is much more detailed in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, when he's 35 during the Tanker mission, and Liquid/Ocelot says, "Not so young anymore, eh, Snake?" Again, he looks for all the world like he's in his thirties, forties at most.
In Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, the radio characters frequently remind us that Para-Medic is considered obnoxious because she talks too much. She does talk an awful lot, but so does everyone else in the series. In fact, compared to most characters, she's relatively subdued, as she only talks to you when the player chooses to contact her directly, apart from a small handful of forced conversations here and there — most of which are her butting in on another radio character's conversation, in contrast to the legitimately annoying character who served her role in the previous game, who would at multiple points throughout the game force you into a ten-minute Codec call.
In Metal Gear: Ghost Babel, Marionette Owl is a serial killer who murders women to collect bones to put in his Bunraku puppets, but refuses to kill men, even when this impedes his plans (Jimmy, the Metal Gear developer and potential informant, tells us Owl only kept him alive after he'd exhausted his use to him because he is male). However, Owl's opening boss battle speech against Snake (who is certainly a man) states that he's going to take Snake's collar bones for his doll Koharu, before pretty unambiguously attempting to kill him. Mind you, since it's stated he kills girls because he falls in love with them, if you're going to have an exception, it'd have to be Solid Snake...

In the final season of The Walking Dead Clementine describes Lilly's father Larry as a "racist asshole" in spite of the fact that the man was a complete asshole to everyone except Lilly. His hatred of Lee was evidently from knowing the man was a convicted murderer rather than anything to do with race, as he seemed to treat Clementine and Glenn with the least hostility out of anyone in the group (though that's not saying much) and even cares enough about Clementine's well-being to threaten Lee if anything happens to her. Justified though, since Clementine was quite young when she knew him and would have easily misinterpreted it as racism because she didn't know about Lee's murder conviction.

The French in Crécy are presented as monstrous terrors that have oppressed England for centuries which basically forces the English to engage war crimes in order to combat their enemies. However, the narrative doesn't particularly portrays them as anymore value than the English, and given the context of the conflict, it's the English who come off as worse since they are the aggressors and the French are merely defending themselves. This may be intentional since the narrator admits to be an extreme xenophobe and naturally unlikely to be unbiased at all.

Zipi y Zape: The twins have bad publicity and some stories show the citizens running away in panic from Zipi and Zape as if they were terrorists or horrible monsters. In reality, Zipi and Zape are two of the nicest people in their town, and they always want to help people. The bad publicity may be due to Characterization Marches On, as in earlier stories the twins were slightly more mischievous and more prone to perform pranks such as tying cans to dog tails. In later stories (the ones that are easier to find and everyone remembers), this trait is dropped, but the citizens' reaction to their pranks isn't. Another possibility is that Values Dissonance is at play: the comic was made in a different time where people were more strict regarding certain behaviors and may have seen their pranks and actions as something more grave.

Rainbow Six: Vegas' Big Bad turns out to be Gabe Nowak, a teammate from the first mission who was effectively the team screw-up, and the prologue of the sequel decides to show us exactly how much of a screw-up he was... and it fails completely at this. Not least for the fact that the AI of Gabe and Logan for this mission is far superior to the might-as-well-be-brain-damaged duo of Mike and Jung you're babysitting for the rest of the game, but because Gabe keeps making decisions that the writing goes out of its way to portray as "bad" and not how you should do things, only for the gameplay to do nothing to bear this out - for instance, one of the first encounters with enemies has him suggest throwing a frag grenade to just kill them all immediately. Logan suggests that if you do so, other terrorists will hear it and execute their hostages, but you can then do exactly as Gabe suggests for every encounter, except maybe the one that actually involves hostages, and not suffer for it in the least. The worst he gets is accidentally getting the hostage negotiator killed, because it legitimately seemed like the terrorists were going to just kill the hostages anyway; being narcissistic, which only really comes up twice, once bragging that he could take a sniper out from twice the distance the player does and once assuming he performed a breaching maneuver perfectly; and, when the team is ambushed and he gets incapacitated after defusing a bomb at the end of the mission, angrily assuming that the team deliberately set him up to get killed for his screw-ups - screw-ups that aren't nearly as numerous or terrible as the game wants you to think. It's telling that when you finally confront him at the end of the game, he has to completely change track to being angry at you over covering for his screw-ups and not letting him learn from them - with the added bonus of him covering for the nonexistence of his own flaw by fabricating a completely new informed flaw for Bishop (their supposed "babying" of their recruits and not letting them mature on their own - even though Logan, the other recruit from the prologue, is as competent as you can get considering he's the player character in the previous game).

Marvel Cinematic Universe:
In Thor, Loki is said to be "sometimes mischievous", possibly as a nod to the mythological character he's based on. Except he's deadly serious and never does anything you could consider to be mischievous except in the absolute loosest sense of the word. His pranks were cut from the theatrical release and only included in the Extended Cut. In The Avengers however, Loki does show a rather dry sense of humor with a bit of Faux Affably Evil. Thor: The Dark World continues what Avengers started, with Loki frequently playing the role of Deadpan Snarker and Thor: Ragnarok eventually mentions several mischievous pranks from Loki and Thor's childhood.
Ant-Man presents Scott Lang as an incompetent everyman who is always screwing up - as he's introduced just getting released from prison. But his backstory for going to prison is that he was essentially a hacking Robin Hood who was screwed over by his bosses when he discovered them doing illegal things. The Unshaved Mouse had this to say:
Captain Marvel (2019) tells us early on that Carol is too emotional and prone to losing control of her powers because of it. Her emotions are never out of control and every use of her powers shows them being rather competent - save for one moment where she angrily destroys a Skrull's computer (and even that was a controlled outburst).

Thomas Sharpe of Crimson Peak has a twofer:
He claims he's nervous in crowds and says he has to shut his eyes during his and Edith's first dance together. He never once displays Poor Social Skills at any other point in the film - interacting with strangers confidently and charismatically. Specifically he says he has to shut his eyes during uncomfortable situations - which he never does, except for when Edith discovers his incestuous relationship with Lucille.
Edith claims he's "always looking to the past". A character trait that might accurately describe Lucille, but Thomas is shown to be very ambitious and imaginative - never displaying old-fashioned or outdated attitudes.

In Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice Maya describes her past attempts at channelling spirits as "hit-and-miss". This might've been true for the first game in the series where she did have a few failures, but that's when she's specifically described as being still in training. One game later, while she continues to train, she's considered full-fledged spirit medium, and from that point onward she never once she failed to channel a spirit of a dead person. (At one point she even beats out Pearl in channeling a spirit even though Pearl is a very strong medium herself.)

In Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, the Defiant is supposedly overpowered for its size and almost tore itself apart when it was pushed to its top speed in testing. It never performs anything less than flawlessly in the show, however. Apparently, chief engineer O'Brien is just that good. It's later clarified that the fix is actually pretty simple, but it requires violating standard Federation safety rules; two episodes involve cast members getting other ships of the same class up to snuff almost immediately by basically changing the settings.

Lana Kane from Archer is constantly made fun of by other people for having big hands, even though her character is drawn in proportion with normal sized hands. note This is actually somewhat of a development gag - Her voice actress, Aisha Tyler, has rather large hands.

The Legend of Zelda:
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, at the start the game Zelda complains about how lazy Link is. For the rest of the game, Link comes off as far from lazy with all running around the surface killing a small army of demons he does. This is something of a Running Gag, as Link is often portrayed as having to be dragged out of bed and put to work at the start of quite a few of the games - but not being a morning person is not the same thing as being lazy.
Similar to the above example, in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Navi shouts at Link in the beginning of the game trying to wake him up and mentioning why with a greater destiny awaiting him would the kingdom depend on such a lazy boy. Throughout the game, Link is barely ever lazy, especially with all the dungeons, many creepy things he slays that would normally send even well-trained adult soldiers running for their homes, and surprisingly athletic things he does that wouldn't be normally expected of a boy of 10 years old. Not to mention all those cool front flips he does in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask while chasing after the Skull Kid.
Same applies to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, where Link oversleeps on his birthday, but is fully capable of setting sail overseas on his own.
In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a Rito woman visiting Gerudo Town claims that the Rito have especially poor night vision, but this is never dealt with in the story other than her comment about it.
Hyrule Warriors: After gaining the Master Sword, Link is said to grow arrogant, rushing into battle alone with no regards for his own safety. Too bad this is just how the gameplay works, so it seems like the other characters are getting upset over Link doing nothing different whatsoever.

In one book of the X-Wing Series, Wedge Antilles' childhood friend Mirax teases him about his ego, saying that it's so big he thinks he can control it. Wedge's pride is barely shown at all — in Wraith Squadron he puts up with one of his pilots saying that at twenty-eight he's too old for the job to a point and then challenges her to a race and wins, but he doesn't even rub it in. He once goes on a spectacularly destructive but strategically unnecessary strafing run because a TIE pilot and the ground defenses "irked" him for almost shooting him down, but that incident is never followed up on. Wedge is happy getting little credit, and once when playing a gambit for the benefit of one of his pilots regrets that credit will go to him and not them. Granted, Mirax also says (in the same dialogue, no less) that as a redeeming characteristic, he usually can (and does) keep it in check. And those few times he doesn't, it's usually his enemies that are the worse off for it. He's got much more of an ego after the X-Wing novels, admittedly, though those are the books which show him in the most detail.

Gary of Ménage à 3 claims to have a mass of psychological problems sufficient to sustain a PhD thesis, but he seems to be just a fairly ordinary geek with poor social skills, a taste for porn (to geekily obsessive but not socially disabling levels), and in early episodes, a tendency to suffer manga-style nosebleeds in the presence of attractive real women. This may be deliberate, showing that his real problem is just self-pity. It becomes especially egregious as the story progresses and Gary ends up becoming the most sexually successful character in the comic, wooing dozens of women, and yet still gets extremely nervous around women.

Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade has the character of Kishuna, who was rejected as a failure by Nergal because of his frail body. This tends to throw players for a loop, as Kishuna in gameplay is a massive Stone Wall with HP and evasion only matched by the final bosses, a permanent field of Anti-Magic surrounding him, and the ability to teleport on top of this (which he tends to do so whenever he seems endangered). This makes him one of the most difficult enemies to take down; standard strategy is to just pray for a crit. He can't attack at all, but it's rather hard to imagine Nergal couldn't find some way to put such a phenomenal asset to good use.

The Flash (2014): Hunter Zolomon/Zoom, Big Bad of season 2, is revealed to take a drug called Velocity-6 (and later versions until 9) that enhances his speed but in the process it starts to weaken him and he needs to steal Barry's speed in order to survive the cellular degeneration. Except we never see this actually affect him in any way. By contrast, the one-shot villain Trajectory uses Velocity-9 but it causes both an addiction and a mental breakdown that results in a split personality and its effects end up killing her. Granted, Zoom was already a speedster, thus he already has the speed force in him to keep him active longer, but he still manages to win out almost every encounter with The Flash despite his insistence he's dying.

In Garfield and Friends, Jon is said to have a terrible singing voice. However, anyone with an ear can hear that Thom Huge actually has a nice singing voice. Otherwise, he would not have been asked to perform the musical numbers. Also, his ability to cook is questioned... obviously he can make lasagna capably, and presumably other dishes as well; however, when he deviates from his small store of pat recipes and experiments, the results leave much to be desired (he once used mayonnaise as a substitute for some necessary ingredient, reasoning that "it's the same color"). Even Garfield won't touch these culinary abortions.

Batman: Stephanie Brown is often stated to be by far the least competent member of the Bat-family, to the point that her being completely out of her depth as Robin was the entire impetus for War Games. While she's mostly self-taught, usually underequipped, and not as inhumanly skilled as some members of the group, in actual fights or on missions, she doesn't seem much less able than most versions of Robin, and can still manage to beat up dozens of thugs or sneak into top-security fortresses with the best of them.

Star Trek:
Much is made of Q being a liar. For example, Worf in "Déjà Q" says "You have fooled us too often, Q," and Vash in "Q-Less" mentions that the people of the planet Brax believe Q is the god of lies. Yet he almost never lies onscreen, something Janeway explicitly points out. Of course, he was lying to her in that very conversation...

Tasha Yar's characterization appeared to be built around her traumatic childhood experiences growing up on a Crapsack World and her frequent reference to "rape gangs" on her planet. So she likely was intended to have the usual blunt and tough personality you'd expect of a former Street Urchin. However, Tasha was quite polite, soft-spoken, and mild-mannered for a person who grew up on a world that is essentially right out of Mad Max. On the Edo world, Tasha genuinely enjoyed the company of the Edo-men and women, Edo world being a world where Geordi remarked "they make love at the drop of a hat", Tasha jokingly added "any hat". She didn't exactly seem uncomfortable with men, intimacy, or sexuality as would be expected of a young woman from her background.
Whenever Data does a poetry reading, you can usually see the crew slumped around looking bored or doing their best to try to get out of it, implying his poetry is meant to be really bad. But aside from Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness in some of his early work and a rather basic rhyme scheme, Data's actual poetry is at worst a little amateur, with a good meter, solid use of imagery, and fairly deep topics.

Philip's paintings in the 1934 film version of Of Human Bondage are said to be awful. A glance at them shows that they are quite nice, or at least he'd have no problem selling them. It's possible there's some Values Dissonance here; impressionism was still catching on at the time Philip is working as an artist, so they might just be unpalatable for the period.

In DOOM (2016), The Slayer Testaments establish that the demons are absolutely terrified of The Doom Slayer. He reputedly drove them over the Despair Event Horizon at least once when he defeated a Titan in single combat and had to be buried alive in order to finally be stopped. However, when you fight the demons in game, none of them show even the faintest hint of fear. None of them retreat, beg, surrender, or offer to betray their peers in exchange for mercy. Instead, they throw themselves at the Slayer without hesitation, fighting him to the last breath with the same expressions of rage and contempt on their faces that they show for their weaker victims.

Spellsinger: In the series main character Jon Tom is usually mentioned to be a horrible singer by everyone, including himself. It's a minor plot point in the first novel (when his singing actually starts a bar fight), but after that is mostly just something that the other characters will occasionally mock him for. This could be partly because he tries to take singing lessons over the course of the series (which covers over two decades in-universe), and partly because by the standards of the setting he's in (rock and its derivatives are unknown and there are common species with innately more melodic voices than humans) his singing style is much harsher than anyone's used to. Whether and how much it's an actual flaw (as he's making music for magic rather than audience entertainment) is never really clear.

In Darksaber, Pellaeon is said to have little charisma. What does he do in that series? Display more persuasive ability and likability than anyone else on his side. Before that was written, he was known to have taken command of what was left of the fleet during the disaster at Endor, calling the retreat. After this was written, he set up a peace treaty with the New Republic and talked the Imperial Remnant into accepting it. Yeah, that's something someone with little charisma can do.

In Red Dead Redemption, Seth Of The Dead's official bio on the website claims he's a meth addict. In game, he's completely insane and not healthy-looking, but we never see him anywhere near meth or impaired by need for it (especially in contrast to a character met later on who is a cocaine addict, and talks about almost nothing besides his coke addiction to the point where it reaches Overly Long Gag).
Landon Ricketts' bio describes him as 'vain and pretentious'. The worst he gets is slightly arrogant about his genuinely phenomenal gun-slinging ability, when poking fun at Marston for 'barely being able to shoot straight'. His self-deprecating attitude towards himself (and his love life), his genuine devotion to the people of Mexico, his compassion towards John Marston and his thoughtful but straight-talking manner actually lead to him coming across as humble, the precise opposite of what his bio says. Especially in contrast with the genuinely vain and pretentious Mexican politicians. He is vain and pretentious in the Alternate Universe zombie DLC, though.
In the game itself, John taunts Javier Escuella by claiming Abigail Roberts (John's wife) always thought he (Javier) was a creep. This never comes up in the prequel, where Javier is presented as one of the nicest members of the gang. Also, John tells Abraham Reyes that Javier was a man with "passion but no love" who cared little for anyone else, a stark contrast to his portrayal in RDR2.

Frank Burns of M*A*S*H is stated to be a terrible surgeon despite being one of the camp's only four doctors and the camp having a 97% survival rate. Other than Burns occasionally breaking down under pressure and making human mistakes, we don't see him actually kill every single patient he's given, and handles about the same number of wounded as any other doctor. There are, however, numerous episodes where one of the other doctors has to operate on one of his patients again, or step in on his operations, because he was too impatient or simply too arrogant to do it right the first time. He also tends to get easier cases with routine operations. There's certainly enough of these episodes to hold up the idea that he's incompetent, simply not that he's 100% lethal (which is more the others mocking him than making a statement of fact).

A Series of Unfortunate Events plays with this trope in regards to the narrator. Lemony often compares himself to the Baudelaires and finds himself wanting, and calls himself a coward. However, his "autobiographical" series, All the Wrong Questions, shows that he is every bit as courageous and capable as the Baudelaires and even exceeds them in certain aspects (unlike the Baudelaires, Snicket has a more intuitive grasp of people and is capable of pulling off a Batman Gambit at need).

A plot point in Ecco the Dolphin: Defender of the Future is that the Foe stole virtues (actual literal virtues, like Compassion and Intelligence) from the dolphins, but in practice the 'altered' dolphins don't completely lack those traits. One of them helps you solve a puzzle in the level Master of Forgotten Skills, and another is desperate to save his ill father. It's more like those traits are weaker, or fewer dolphins have them, than that they are gone completely.

In My Hero Academia, a case can be made for Midoriya's poor performance on the Quirk Apprehension Test. While it's obvious that proper use of a quirk that's well-suited to the task can enable someone to do several times better than a normal person, Midoriya places last on the test despite having one of the best scores in the ball throwing contest, and having spent months training to learn to use One For All. Even though some of his classmates' quirks wouldn't seem all that useful (for example, Koda can communicate with animals, but he places eleventh out of twenty), everyone else still places ahead of him. The anime offers a Hand Wave for this, with Midoriya saying that after he broke his finger on the ball test, he was too badly injured to do well on the subsequent events.

In The Broadway Melody, the two main characters, a sister act, each have one. There's the "attractive but untalented one" (who seems every bit as good a dancer and singer as the other) and the "talented but plain one" (who is not even a little plain).

Tom and John's father in The Great Brain books has a reputation for buying new inventions that turn out to be worthless, but it never happens in any of the stories. He orders a flush toilet in the first book that works, to everyone's surprise, and gives John a basketball and backboard that make him the most popular kid in town.

In Metal Gear: Ghost Babel, Marionette Owl is a serial killer who murders women to collect bones to put in his Bunraku puppets, but refuses to kill men, even when this impedes his plans (Jimmy, the Metal Gear developer and potential informant, tells us Owl only kept him alive after he'd exhausted his use to him because he is male). However, Owl's opening boss battle speech against Snake (who is certainly a man) states that he's going to take Snake's collar bones for his doll Koharu, before pretty unambiguously attempting to kill him. Mind you, since it's stated he kills girls because he falls in love with them, if you're going to have an exception, it'd have to be Solid Snake...

In A Song of Ice and Fire, we're often told how the Targaryen family is so prone to madness as a result of their massive inbreeding that "when a Targaryen is born, the gods flip a coin." If you actually break down their genealogy, though, out of the line of seventeen Targaryens who held the throne, only Aerys II and Maegor I were truly insane. Aegon II, Aegon III, and Baelor I had mental issues but either owed them to trauma or were largely functional outside of them, a number of others had issues with their rulership but were quite sane, and overall, most Targaryen monarchs seem to have been at least pretty good. Some have inferred that these kings were merely the best of a bad crop, but even then, they seem to have been pretty lucky with those coin tosses until very recently.

One Piece:
If a Devil Fruit user eats a second Fruit, they will not just die, they will explode. At least that's what Blueno claims. Thing is, there's as many things contradicting this as there is confirming it. For starters, it's never happened onscreen and nobody can relate the names of anyone who has done this. Not to mention, Blackbeard does indeed have the powers of two Fruits, having stolen one from Whitebeard, an exception that immediately strikes some witnesses as something that shouldn't have happened. However, while Blackbeard is the only one to have two and lived, nobody can claim to have witnessed an event where a user has exploded as a result of trying it. (Likely, few are willing to test it). Jabra seems to know someone who knows someone who this has happened to, and Blueno may have witnessed it himself. (Blueno does not believe anything he cannot confirm with his own senses, and he claims this is what happens if you eat a second, so he wouldn't have made the claim unless he was sure of it).
Luffy's Gear Second supposedly places a great toll on his body, and in the Thriller Bark arc, one arc after he starts using it, Usopp gets quite worried about how much Luffy relies on it. Since then, Luffy's used Gear Second in most of his major fights, at least until he breaks out Gear Fourth, and the toll it takes on him has been gradually downplayed over time.

Futurama:
Project Satan involved building a car out of the most evil car parts in the world, including the windshield wipers of KITT (from Knight Rider). When Fry pointed out KITT wasn't evil, Calculon tells them the windshield wipers were, it just didn't come up in the show much.
Played for Laughs during a "Tales of Interest" segment parodying The Wizard of Oz. The introduction of the Tin Man, Scarecrow and Cowardly Lion are all rushed through without giving them much of a chance to show off why they need what they need from the Professor, until Zoidberg just pulls up in a taxi as the Cowardly Lion (without a costume) and flatly proclaims, "And I'm the third guy. Courage. Not enough of it."
Leela's problems with depth perception. If you only count in-show achievements, Leela hardly has any depth perception problems at all, being an excellent spaceship pilot and a skilled martial artist. Indeed, the only time Leela has any problems with depth perception is immediately after it is brought up how she has problems with depth perception, making her real flaw the Centipede's Dilemma.
Matcluck, a Simple Country Lawyer hyperchicken, is regularly referred to as a terrible, terrible lawyer. He's been put on trial for incompetence, and once pled insanity for his client with the evidence being that they hired him. Indeed, he doesn't seem like a very smart guy (though it's Futurama; everyone's pretty dumb), but he's actually not an incompetent lawyer. In fact, onscreen, he has a perfect record. Yes, even the insanity defense.

Death Note: Matsuda is well-known for being an idiot, but this isn't really that evident. While he does tend to goof off, and isn't the brightest guy around, he's clearly competent enough to be on the task force. Plus, you can't help but look slow when you're in the same events as Light and L. If you watch any scene where the task force discusses their next move, Matsuda will usually raise at least one good point. He also level grinds in competence during A Day in the Limelight, where he manages to infiltrate Yotsuba, discover where a secret meeting is taking place, and narrow down the list of suspects from hundreds to eight. Then when caught, he plays one fast game of Xanatos Speed Chess, using an alias he's barely familiar with, and fakes his own death without showing fear or breaking character. And of course, he tops himself in the final episode.

Metal Gear Solid:
Meryl Silverburgh was mentioned as having had "special psychotherapy to destroy her interest in men". It didn't work. It's not even that Snake "cures" her — she's flirting with him from the very beginning, before she even knows who he is or what he's like, besides "handsome", and not five minutes after the supposed psychotherapy is mentioned, Psycho Mantis is telling Snake that she's fallen for him. The aim was probably to present her as someone who'd locked away all of her femininity in order to succeed as a soldier, but it has absolutely no effect on her character and absolutely no explanation is even attempted.
Psycho Mantis claims that Snake is even worse than the game's Big Bad, Liquid Snake. While Snake is undoubtedly a Jerkass, he's not without conscience and actually stopped World War III twice, while Liquid is trying to start it. There is no obvious indication in spoken dialogue or backstory to back up Mantis's claim.
Fox says that Snake "hasn't aged well", and while Snake does have accelerated aging which becomes very apparent in later games, in Metal Gear Solid he just appears like a handsome man in his early 30s, with all of the female characters noticing straight away how good-looking he is. Mind you, that's also Informed Attractiveness in itself, since, apart from the artworks used in the Codec and Briefing, his face is an immobile, low-poly block with no visible eyes. Still, his face is much more detailed in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, when he's 35 during the Tanker mission, and Liquid/Ocelot says, "Not so young anymore, eh, Snake?" Again, he looks for all the world like he's in his thirties, forties at most.

In The Producers Roger De Bris is supposedly a terrible theatrical director, but he competently stages a production of "Springtime For Hitler" complete with an elaborate Busby Berkeley Number. Of course, his main problem is that he makes everything way too campy. It just happens to work out with "Springtime for Hitler" by pushing it into Crosses the Line Twice territory.

Similar to the above example, in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Navi shouts at Link in the beginning of the game trying to wake him up and mentioning why with a greater destiny awaiting him would the kingdom depend on such a lazy boy. Throughout the game, Link is barely ever lazy, especially with all the dungeons, many creepy things he slays that would normally send even well-trained adult soldiers running for their homes, and surprisingly athletic things he does that wouldn't be normally expected of a boy of 10 years old. Not to mention all those cool front flips he does in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask while chasing after the Skull Kid.

In the Pellucidar novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs there are a race of gorilla-like humanoids called Sagoths. In the book it is stated a few times that Sagoths are inferior to humans in intelligence. However, none of the Sagoth characters appear to be particularly stupid, the Sagoth guard captain in the second book is able to see through a human's ruses and the Sagoth that Tarzan befriends in the fourth book seems to be of at least average intelligence.

7 Seeds: Hana has difficulty connecting with other people. She never made friends beyond Arashi before coming to the future. She's a loner, who just plain can't make friends because of her headstrong, stubborn nature. This gets claimed repeatedly by Hana herself and Arashi, when the series shows the complete opposite. Hana seems to quickly connect with Fujiko and Chisa and hangs out with them frequently, several guys end up crushing on her, and her headstrong, stubborn personality is something that the members of the other Teams often mention to be an impressive quality about her. Only two people seem to heavily dislike her — Ango and Ryo. And Ango is implied to find her annoying because the two of them are too similar in their stubbornness, while also finding her stubbornness to be attractive, and Ryo dislikes her simply because her presence annoys Ango.

In Ender's Game, Bean is claimed to be bad at commanding large armies, but can use a few as precisely as a scalpel. Why he would be bad with large armies is never given any examples past being stated so... until the P.O.V. Sequel Ender's Shadow which revealed said trait was in fact a lie to keep Bean from shouldering too many responsibilities because he's Ender's replacement in case he fails. Being a P.O.V. sequel also gives it more time to show that the lie does have a bit of truth to it. Bean's tactics are excellent, but morale under his command tends to be low because he's not good at empathizing with others.

Until Dawn:
Sam has a low "funny" stat yet she is clearly shown having a good humor.
Mike has low "brave" and "charitable" stats, even though he's friendly with everyone regardless how they treat him and is arguably one of the bravest characters.
Chris has the lowest stat for "brave" out of all the characters (ironically, even lower than Ashley who is an easily frightened Hysterical Woman). While not necessarily the bravest, Chris has shown and performed several feats of bravery, such as attempting to retrieve Josh despite knowing about the Wendigos outside the lodge.
Matt is often treated by Emily, Jess and potentially Mike as being Dumb Muscle but Matt has proven to show composure and be rational during tense situations.

In Fate/EXTRA CCC, Elizabeth Bathory is said to have zero talent for writing songs and is tone-deaf, to the point that her Noble Phantasm is belting out a song through castle sized amplifiers (though one might argue that any sound blasted out of amps that powerful would be severely damaging). In Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star, we do hear her sing, and while the lyrics are trashy, her actual singing is very good. All the characters still react as though it grates on their ears. Stories have varied for why this is—one of the more common explanations is that Liz's voice is essentially her Breath Weapon (being part dragon), and it's less her lack of talent and more that she's throwing sonic magic into her song that makes it unpleasant.

Charlie Brown in Peanuts claims that everyone hates him and he has no friends, even though Schroeder and Linus are clearly his friends, and although Lucy insults him, she also hangs around with him an awful lot. Also, all the neighborhood kids let him be manager and captain of the baseball team. Of course, this makes more sense when you know that the creator Charles M. Schulz, even when he had a wife, five children and millions of fans, still complained of being anxious and lonely. This is slightly more evident, if still underwhelming, in the animated cartoons, where the others can sometimes be more apathetic or ignorant of his suffering. Charlie Brown's defining characteristics are being wishy-washy and most of the symptoms you think of when you hear the term "clinical depression". Too bad There Are No Therapists other than Lucy.

Game of Thrones:
Renly claims Stannis would never be willing to negotiate. However in the meeting they'd just had Stannis did try to negotiate and offered Renly very reasonable terms which would probably end up making Renly King anyway. Likewise, the showrunners insist that Stannis' key flaw is "ambition" when he tells Davos that he didn't want the Iron Throne in Season 3 but feels he has to because its his duty and likewise, saw the circumstances that led to Shireen's sacrifice as a Cold Equation.
Walder Frey's daughters are legendarily ugly. So much so that even Catelyn can't find something positive to say about any of them. The prospect of marrying one is what motivates Robb to break his marriage promise and marry the pretty Talisa instead. When we actually see the daughters, they look Hollywood Homely at worst. There's some of this in-universe too - as Roslin Frey is revealed to be a stunning beauty.
Daenerys in Seasons 7 and 8 is presented as a ticking time-bomb who could go mad at any moment, and would be an unfit ruler. Except, the reason she does so bad at her attempts to conquer Westeros is because she listened to her advisors who gave terrible advice; she didn't take King's Landing straight away because Tyrion and Varys advised her not to. Sansa is mistrustful of her in Season 8 for no apparent reason. Their suspicions are only proved right due to Moral Luck - when Daenerys chooses to burn all of King's Landing to the ground after a surrender. This happens after several of her inner circle start conspiring against her, before she has done anything. One moment that is presented as Foreshadowing for this is her execution of Randyll and Dickon Tarly - who were humanely offered the choice between that and surrender. Harsh but no more so than Ned Stark beheading a Night's Watch deserter in the first episode, or Jon Snow executing those who rebelled against him (including a child). Sansa likewise fed Ramsay Bolton to his own hounds.

In Thor, Loki is said to be "sometimes mischievous", possibly as a nod to the mythological character he's based on. Except he's deadly serious and never does anything you could consider to be mischievous except in the absolute loosest sense of the word. His pranks were cut from the theatrical release and only included in the Extended Cut. In The Avengers however, Loki does show a rather dry sense of humor with a bit of Faux Affably Evil. Thor: The Dark World continues what Avengers started, with Loki frequently playing the role of Deadpan Snarker and Thor: Ragnarok eventually mentions several mischievous pranks from Loki and Thor's childhood.

The protagonist in the pro-life film October Baby is a survivor of a botched abortion, and is said to have depression, epilepsy, asthma, and a childhood full of hip surgeries.

Left 4 Dead 2 states that Coach injured his knee during his days in college football and it sacked his football career. On top of this, Coach is overweight, which would make running and climbing more difficult for him. The injury and weight problem is shown off in the opening intro scene where Coach has to take a breather from climbing up several flights of stairs (while the younger and more fit Nick, while still noticeably out of breath, is blazing on past him), but Coach is not hindered at all during the actual game.

Wendy, the protagonist of Final Destination 3 tells us constantly that she's a Control Freak. Throughout the whole film, she never shows a problem with not being in control (she in fact lampshades that her control freak nature failed her when she could have stopped the opening accident).

The Naruto fanfic For Your Eyes Only describes Sakura as being the type who Really Gets Around. She violently rejects the only male to speak with her onscreen, only ever flirts with one male offscreen and is killed for it. We never even hear her point-of-view on this, as she doesn't get so much as a word of dialogue.

In Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, Kanna is stated to have been kicked out of the dragon world due to being mischevious and prone to acting out. She's very well behaved every time we see her. However, this is justified given that the stated reason for her acting out was because her parents ignored her. Since Kobayashi and Tohru both give her lots of attention, she doesn't have a need to misbehave.

Pink Personal Hell And Altering Fate plays this a little differently - Nickel Steel doesn't believe he's good at magic despite having a "magic" Cutie Mark. Actually, that's just him not being sure enough of himself - meaning his flaw isn't that he's unskilled at magic, moreso that he's just not sure of himself.

In Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, the radio characters frequently remind us that Para-Medic is considered obnoxious because she talks too much. She does talk an awful lot, but so does everyone else in the series. In fact, compared to most characters, she's relatively subdued, as she only talks to you when the player chooses to contact her directly, apart from a small handful of forced conversations here and there — most of which are her butting in on another radio character's conversation, in contrast to the legitimately annoying character who served her role in the previous game, who would at multiple points throughout the game force you into a ten-minute Codec call.

We're told Ember's song "Remember" from Danny Phantom is a mediocre song. Sam goes on that it's pre-packaged bubblegum pop taking away fame from proper artists and Danny makes fun of it too. The song is pretty decent, and the lyrics definitely don't sound like bubblegum pop, being more of a Revenge Ballad that suggests she burned down a guy's house because he stood her up.

Most DMs of these systems get wise to this after their first experience or two and start limiting character flaws players can take. The Shadowrun 4th edition rulebook went out of its way to encourage DMs to make certain flaws unavailable to characters who are never likely to get into a situation where they matter.

At the very beginning of Chrono Trigger, people talk about how Lucca's made yet another "crazy invention", and sarcastically say they hope it doesn't blow up like all the others. Over the course of the game Lucca then proceeds to invent a teleportation device (the Telepod), a portable flamethrower (her Flame Toss attack), a portable hypnotic device (her Hypno Wave attack), a knockout device (her "Zonker 38", which she can use to rescue Crono), a supply of potent hand grenades (her Napalm and Mega Bomb attacks), a device capable of controlling warps in the space/time continuum (the Gate Key), fixes and improves on a piece of futuristic technology that's been rusted out for over 300 years (Robo), and discovers a way to harness solar energy and use it as a weapon (the Wonder Shot).
The teleportation device manages to make someone vanish instead of successfully teleporting them the second time it's used (though that isn't really her fault - it only made Marle vanish because her magical pendant (powered by Lavos, no less) interfered with it), and many of those (flamethrower, grenades, Wonder Shot) are literally inventions that blow up or blow other things up — they're just supposed to do that.
Lucca's father Taban fits this too. He's amazed that their teleportation device works, but he then proceeds to develop a series of increasingly effective pieces of body armor for Lucca (the Taban Vest, Taban Helm and Taban Suit), and also converts solar energy into a device capable of increasing its user's physical power (the Sun Shades).
One of his devices did cripple his wife. At least until Lucca uses time travel to change that, though he would have built a device that almost crippled his wife. Perhaps this is a case of Once Done, Never Forgotten.

The mercs in Team Fortress 2 have a few:
While their sanity (or lack thereof) isn't questioned, they have been described as "mostly having below-average IQ's" by Miss Pauling, and as "idiots" by Helen the Administrator, though each of them later displayed smarts ranging from Genius Ditz to Ditzy Genius level, probably factoring in the "emotional stability" part of IQ amongst others. A later comic shows why they make such claims; Helen believes them to be just like the lead poisoned idiots of Teufort, while Miss Pauling has secretly been providing all of them with bottled water, except the Soldier, who didn't bother listening to her warnings.
Also, both of them claim that the mercs are illiterate; videos seem to contradict this, as all of them except the Soldier and maybe the Pyro are able to read just fine, with the Heavy and the Engineer even holding PhDs and the Medic having an MD, since he had a medical license in the past.

In Sonic X, Chris Thorndyke often complains about being rich meaning he doesn't have any real friends, and his parents never being home. While at first this seems almost true, over time, he is shown to have more human friends, more guardians, and his parents repeatedly manage to physically show up for special occasions. Being obscenely wealthy is certainly never played as a disadvantage.

Doctor Who:
The War Doctor is built up as a much darker and more violent incarnation than the others, so much so that subsequent Doctors pretend he never even existed. However, we never actually see him commit any of the atrocities that have made him such a pariah, save for almost destroying his home planet, which he ends up not doing. Even then, two other Doctors are there to assist him, so it's not even that the War Doctor crosses any lines that none of his other selves would cross.
However, this is something of an in universe example, as due to the time manipulation, no iteration of the Doctor, except the eleventh (being the latest iteration involved) can remember the events, so they all THINK the War Doctor did something much worse than he did (killing the Time Lords, instead of saving them). Thanks to Timey-Wimey Ball shenanigans it's entirely possible that the first time around he really did do it; he definitely made the decision to do so, and was only prevented at the last second.
We are repeatedly assured through Series 7 and 8 that Clara is a 'control freak'. She is, but it takes until "The Caretaker" (the sixth episode of Series 8) before it manifests in her behavior whatsoever, and even then we get episodes like "Kill The Moon" and "Flatline" where the Doctor purposefully gives her direct control over situations and she is hurt by the Doctor not wanting to take charge. There's also a running joke in Series 8 that her face is 'too wide', despite her face being perfectly normal.

Twilight:
Edward Cullen always tells Bella that he's "dangerous" and "she should stay away from him." However everyone knows he would never hurt Bella physically. While he does mentally abuse her and is extremely controlling, he doesn't cross the line into physically hurting her. He always thinks he knows better what is good for her than she herself, like in New Moon where he broke up with her. Allegedly to protect her from him and his vampire family.
Edward is an atoner who doesn't trust himself not to fall back into blood lust. It doesn't help that Bella's blood smells super-delicious to him and to his knowledge that has only ever ended badly for the human involved. This is arguably less an informed flaw and more a case of self-doubt that turned out not to be justified.
Edward says at a few points that humans find vampires naturally frightening, and thus try to avoid them. Given that the entire town all but hero-worships the Cullens for being so beautiful, mysterious, generous, and so on, that's kind of hard to buy. Of course, we're later told that vampires have physical features meant to lure humans closer, so it could just be a case of the author not being able to make up her mind/remember what she wrote.
Another alleged flaw of the vampire race is that they need the masquerade to protect them from being exterminated by humans. This seems a baseless fear since vampires in Twilight have none of the traditional vampire weaknesses (unless you count sparkling in sunlight), but do have Super Strength, Super Speed, are nigh-unkillable even if they don't use either of the above, and can easily create a whole army of new vampires. Add in powers like foreseeing any danger (like an incoming human army or cruise missile), and the Cullens alone could take on a country and win, even if the humans are aware of their existence.
Bella claims that she just doesn't get along with most people, having no friends in Phoenix besides her mother. The instant she gets to Forks, everyone she meets clamors to be her friend. Not to mention that while she insists she's uninteresting, she gets the attention of Edward, who it is stressed had no interest in most folks outside of his vampiric family, ever since his transformationnote albeit through the plot device of her blood smelling especially attractive to him.
Alternatively, Bella is the narrator so this could just be her self esteem issues talking. Plus her mass appeal seemed largely due to her being the new girl from an exotically distant locale rather than because she was especially good with people. Self esteem issues or no, though, the depictions of the various characters over the next few books show most of them wanting to be Bella's friend, wanting to go out with her, or being bitterly jealous of her.
Leah is often described as a shrew of the highest order, to the point where Breaking Dawn has Jacob finding it extremely weird to have a civil conversation with her, and everyone agreeing that the miserable life she's living is her own fault. While Leah does say some not nice things, a lot of her "jerkishness", like trying to convince Jacob to stop pursuing Bella because she's getting married, makes a lot of sense. Not to mention that her "shrewish" behavior started after her she lost her fiance to her cousin, turned into a werewolf, went through the stress of her dad dying, and generally had her whole life ruined and screwed up. It is not surprising that haters of the series see Leah as the Unintentionally Sympathetic Woobie, garnering a massive fanbase in the process.
Jessica and her group, with the exception of Angela, are described quite differently than what they are. Bella says they're shallow, annoying, clingy, and rude. Indeed, right after meeting Jessica, Bella thinks to herself that Jessica just wants to be her friend to be popular, but we never find out what made Bella think that. In Midnight Sun (a P.O.V. Sequel starring Edward) his mind reading depicts them this way, too, but many people feel this is out of character, and essentially Meyer trying to confirm her assertions. Basically, Jessica was already popular, and Bella was never sociable enough to help her with that even if she weren't.

An early Superman Christmas story shows us an older boy who's supposed to be spoiled and unappreciative of his wealth, but the actual writing shows him as no worse than sheltered, and far from being unappreciative of his many toys, he's surfeited, and wants to move on to real things, which is perfectly normal and reasonable for a twelve-year-old.

According to Art of Fighting's canon, Kyokugen's Ryuugeki discipline is said to be flawed, due to the severe imbalances of focusing almost exclusively on kicks. Which places it below the Kooh discipline (used by Ryo) that emphasizes equal activity between the arms and legs. Tell that to Robert, 'cuz apparently, he didn't get that memo. Not only is he canonically stated to be Ryo's equal, he's been described as "a natural genius" by friend and foe alike, and has defeated some of the most proficient martial artists in SNK's universe.

The Hunger Games claims repeatedly that Katniss is Not Good with People, but even in the first book, that's not the case. She manages to impress the Gamemakers enough that they give her a practically unheard-of eleven in the ratings, her prep team adore her, the Capitol are rooting for the "girl on fire" very early on, Peeta outright says in his interview with Cinna that a lot of boys back home have a crush on Katniss and generally speaking people tend to flock to her despite Katniss being rude and surly most of the time. Of course, Katniss has pretty glaring self-esteem issues, so it seems like a case of Unreliable Narrator over anything else.

In Blood Ties, the main character supposedly has retinitis pigmentosa, which makes her have very poor peripheral vision and night vision - not that it affects her at all after the very first episode. Even if she could see reasonably well in daylight, she should have been blind at night - after all, retinitis pigmentosa is also known as night blindness. But she can easily navigate in a darkened room using a tiny little penlight. In the book series Vicki has serious problems navigating at night. The fact that she can't drive in the dark is a major plot point in the second book.

Sailor Moon:
In one of the episodes Usagi lists a bunch of her faults, one of them being that she's flat-chested. Her actual appearance contradicts that.
Then there's a later episode where the Monster of the Week and Chibi-Usa both agree that she's fat. In reality, her proportions are more exaggeratedly thin than Barbie's even though she's constantly portrayed as a lazy Big Eater. Apparently, Naoko Takeuchi originally intended Usagi to be slightly chubbier than the rest of the females, but you can't tell by the actual graphics.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: During the curse-induced dreams the heroes have against the Lower Kizuki One fight, Zenitsu appears like a caricature of himself in Kyojuro and Inosuke’s dreams as a stereotypical man with overbite teeth formation in a very exaggerated manner, that contrasts greatly with his normal appearance where no flaws in his face can be seen, and that would be ok since those were just illusionary versions of Zenitsu, however in a volume extra the author does say Zenitsu really has overbite, but outside the caricature version of him it just can’t be seen.

South Park plays with this a lot, such as informing the audience that a character is hideously ugly or very attractive when they look no different than anyone else.
In one episode, Cartman is sent to jail, leaving the other boys to single Clyde out as "obviously" the fattest kid in the class, even though he is literally the exact same shape as all the other kids other than his hair.
Special mention goes to Ugly Bob, who was exiled from Canada for his ugliness despite looking identical to every other Canadian (and not being considered ugly by non-Canadians). It turns out that his ugliness gives him the gorgon-like ability to turn anything that looks at him into stone.
In "The Hobbit", Wendy points out her and the other kid's imperfections (like Bebe having acne and Jason having freckles, yet they're not shown); like herself having pimples and crooked bottom teeth (neither of which are visible), and points out that Stan has short stubby legs, even though they look just like everyone else's. What's weirder is that Jason does have an actual identifiable flaw (a prematurely receding hairline).

Godzilla (1998) repeatedly has other characters tell Audrey (and by extension, the audience) that she's far too nice for her own good. The idea is to sell her as an Extreme Doormat but, before the movie has even started, she and Nick are broken up because she chose her career over marrying him. And in the course of the movie, she ruins his career by betraying top secret information to the press to further her own.

In the game itself, John taunts Javier Escuella by claiming Abigail Roberts (John's wife) always thought he (Javier) was a creep. This never comes up in the prequel, where Javier is presented as one of the nicest members of the gang. Also, John tells Abraham Reyes that Javier was a man with "passion but no love" who cared little for anyone else, a stark contrast to his portrayal in RDR2.

On the Crimson Flower route of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, several characters will deride Dimitri as being extremely violent, vengeance-driven, and extensively hateful towards Edelgard (the Main Lord of this route). These are all true...on every route other than Crimson Flower, ironically. This is the only route in the game where instead of being nearly executed and forced into exile, Dimitri is crowned King of Faerghus fairly quickly, has the support of the Knights of Seiros due to the Kingdom's positive relationship with the church, and he puts his need for answers regarding the Tragedy of Duscur on the back burner. Not only is he far more level-headed compared to the other three routes, his anger towards Edelgard and the player is generally more justified, as here you're invading both Faerghus and the Leicester Alliance and forcibly reuniting them under the Empire, in addition to gunning for Rhea and the Church of Seiros. It also makes Edelgard's derision of his anger at her come off as lacking in self-awareness, given that his grievances on this route are all about her causing the war to begin with.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Buffy is a complicated example. She is supposed to be a inversion of the girly blonde cheerleader who gets killed by the monster in a horror film. It's implied that the movie takes place before the series and there she started out as the girly bimbo cheerleader, but that becoming The Chosen One put an end to much of that. The show doesn't start until after she Took a Level in Badass.

When "he" first appears in New Avengers a sharp-eyed reader might notice that the mysterious character Ronin seems to be ignoring Spider-Man and Iron Man. This makes sense when it's revealed that Ronin is actually Echo — a deaf woman — who can't lip-read someone whose mask/helmet covers their mouth... unfortunately, once that's revealed, Echo's deafness seems to go away; she even replies to comments made by people facing away from her.

Somewhat famously, GURPS had the flaw of Weirdness Magnet. This was popular among min-maxers for the expedient reason that player characters are invariably Weirdness Magnets already. And due to the way the flaw was written, once one character had it, there was basically no effect if everyone else took it as well since it was already a party-wide effect that didn't stack. Not to mention, there's the angle of "So... the downside to taking this flaw is that I get to go on ''more'' exciting adventures and be the center of attention?"

The Brass Teapot has Payton, played by Alexis Bledel. By the way the other characters talk about her, one would think she was the resident Alpha Bitch, but other than some snootiness and condescension, she’s nowhere near that bitchy and she does keep inviting her poorer former high school classmates to her parties.

In Urusei Yatsura, the male protagonist, Ataru, is described more than once as being the most unattractive teenage in all of Tomobiki. However, he looks like an average teenage boy. He has a steady girlfriend before the start of the series. Unknowingly charms the Cute Alien Girl Lum, who refuses to let him go, and other female characters throughout the series and movies.

Family Guy:
Meg Griffin is constantly being called fat and ugly by the rest of the cast—she's apparently so ugly that people maim themselves to get out of taking her to a school dance, scream and set themselves on fire just from looking at her, and immediately puke when they see her topless (an earlier episode showed that she could flash people without petrifying them, though she had a slight deformity as "one's an innie and one's an outie"). However, she's drawn just like the rest of the cast, no worse, and while she does look a bit chubby, she's certainly not fat. The really hilarious thing is, aside from being slightly pudgier and having brown rather than red hair, Meg looks almost exactly like her mother Lois, who the series depicts as a ravishing sex goddess.
Likewise, Peter's boss, Angela, is also portrayed as being ugly and not worth having sex with. Other than Angela's breasts sagging down when they're revealed, she looks pretty plain.
Peter himself is shown in "The Fat Guy Strangler" to be so fat he's developed his own orbit. While he is big (his overhanging stomach acts as a censor when nude), he ends up looking downright svelte in comparison to some of the guys who join his "National Association for the Advancement of Fat People".

Phoebe is known to be a horrible singer by her friends and strangers, but her singing voice would be considered average or below average in a real life setting and not as horrible as the bad singers you would see on American Idol. Phoebe in one episode gets sick and her voice gets deeper and more raspy when she sings, which makes everyone think she actually sounds better this way.

In the Edinburgh episode of John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme, the Storyteller sketch has him explain that his inability to pronounce "f" and "th" sounds led to him being discharged from the Third And Fourth (Forthshire) Fusiliers, only to instead join his uncle Theodore Finnemore's Thimble Factory, where he works under Thaddeus McFarlane procuring fingers and thumbs. And, for the purposes of telling the story, he has no problem describing any of this. Indeed, at one point, even within the story, he's able to announce his realisiation that "Theodore Finnemore is the foremost thumb-fence this side of the Firth of Forth".

Sherlock Holmes:
Holmes' drug use is this in the first few books. Naturally, since A. it wasn't really all that out of the ordinary for the time, at least for those of Holmes' bohemian lifestyle; B. he mainly does it from boredom when he doesn't have a case, and the stories are all about the cases; and C. Watson eventually gets him to kick the habit, it just doesn't come up. Adaptations like The Seven Percent Solution love to push this angle for all it's worth.
Watson lists several of his own "vices" in the first book, which include being lazy, hating arguments and noise, and getting up at odd hours at night. Seeing as how he's a Shell-Shocked Veteran recovering from being wounded and ill, these hardly count as vices and do not appear in later stories after he recovers. He also says that he has "another set of vices when I'm well", none of which are ever actually depicted in the stories either (there are subtle allusions that hint that these mysterious vices may include gambling and possibly womanizing, but they are never shown). Of course, he is the narrator; maybe he's editing out the parts he's uncomfortable with?
In "The Adventure of Shoscombe Old Place", Watson mentions for the first and only time that he spends half his wound pension gambling on horse races. For story purposes this is mostly an excuse for him to know something about people associated with the sport, but he had never really shown much interest in this before (or mentioned spending that much time making bets or watching races). Some adaptations have run with this somewhat offhand remark and given Watson a general compulsive gambling problem.
Holmes also has a number of flaws in the first book which were pretty much forgotten afterward — in particular, his deliberate ignorance of everything not directly connected to the study of crime. In A Study in Scarlet he claims to know nothing of literature or astronomy; in later stories he demonstrates considerable knowledge of both.

Much is made of Q being a liar. For example, Worf in "Déjà Q" says "You have fooled us too often, Q," and Vash in "Q-Less" mentions that the people of the planet Brax believe Q is the god of lies. Yet he almost never lies onscreen, something Janeway explicitly points out. Of course, he was lying to her in that very conversation...

Street Fighter:
Dan Hibiki, the iconic Joke Character, frequently has the joke taken a bit too far. It's been variously claimed that his homegrown martial art is completely useless, that he can't land a single hit on Sakura despite her lack of experience, and that the Gadoken is about as powerful as a slap. Though Dan's power has fluctuated over his history, he's still an incredibly muscular man who can jump six feet straight up and shoot fireballs out of his hands, even if only for a few inches before it disappears. It can get especially disconcerting when playing Super Street Fighter IV, where Dan's Gadoken is actually stronger than the Hadoken when it hits.
Balrog's fighting style is often considered brutal and crude in-universe. In a fight, he's a highly competent, technical boxer with enough strength and finesse to fight against supernatural foes on even footing. He also uses a number of moves that are illegal in boxing — that's how he got kicked out of professional boxing — but this is just a vicious edge to solid technique.

A recurring plot element in Mega Man games is that X was the first robot to be built with true free will, implying the cast of the classic series to be just following their programming. As the series runs on Ridiculously Human Robots, most stories involving Mega Man (who predates X by a good while) don't really show him as much less free-willed than X. Hell, Proto Man, who predates both, is arguably more emotional and willful than either.

In The Great Outdoors we're told several times that Roman's daughters are weird and creepy, and the theme from The Twilight Zone plays when they enter a scene. We're never shown why they would be considered weird or creepy (aside from being identical twins, which in itself is pretty mundane).

How I Met Your Mother: In the episode "Jenkins", the gang tells Marshall that he is the "reacher" to Lily's "settler". Which means that Marshall would never get anybody better then Lily. Yet in a past episode, the opposite is true in which it shows a single Marshall getting numbers from other women and having Lily fail at making it out on her own and wanting to get back together with Marshall.

In Merlin:
Morgana speaks of Guinevere's hands, saying "her fingers are worn, her nails are broken." In a later episode, a villain identifies Gwen (disguised as Morgana) as an imposter because she has "the hands of a servant." Yet whenever we get a close-up of actress Angel Coulby's hands, the audience can see she has smooth skin and beautifully manicured nails.
In the first two seasons, Kilgarrah refers to Morgana as untrustworthy and destined to do evil. Except her untrustworthy acts include smuggling a young druid boy out of Camelot to save him from execution just for having magic. Her most underhanded act - preparing to murder Uther in cold blood - was motivated out of him having Gwen's father executed, and even then she had a Heel Realization and chose to spare him. Morgana doesn't in fact become the villain Kilgarrah says she is until she's been corrupted by her half-sister in exile for a year.

The translocator in Unreal Tournament 2004 was slightly nerfed from the original game - it now has an ammo limit which slowly recharges. The justification for this is that using the thing too much can result in a disease called "Teleportation Related Dementia", even though in the original game there's literally nothing preventing you from just translocating everywhere for an hour or so, other than maybe someone sabotaging the disc or trying to take a flag with them. Much like replacing the Sniper Rifle with a Lightning Gun that shows exactly where the sniper's shooting from, the real reason is precisely to prevent people from translocating everywhere all the time as part of game balance.

Musashi's kicks in Eyeshield 21 are supposedly powerful with the drawback that he isn't entirely accurate. Yet he never missed a single kick in these sports (apart from a flashback where Shin had directly blocked it). Even his rival Kotaro, who is known for his 100% accuracy instead of power, misses a pivotal kick.

Frasier:
Martin suffers from a bit of this. While he is often described as being cranky and intolerable before moving in with Frasier, flashback episodes generally portray him with the same pleasant, easy-going personality he always has. Likewise, as an active and energetic man for his age, he rarely comes off as disabled enough to justify having a full-time, live-in medical assistant. This was lampshaded to a degree in the episode "Dial M For Martin," where the plot centers around the question of whether Daphne's services are still needed (with a predictably belaboured Reset Button ending). This is alluded to all the way back in the pilot. Martin only needed part-time help, but Daphne needed a permanent live-in job and her agency sent her there by mistake. However, Daphne was the only applicant that Martin liked and thus was hired (to Frasier's chagrin).
Similarly, Lilith is usually spoken of as if she is the devil herself. Yet while she is portrayed as a bit emotionless and overly rational, there are no signs of malign intent or immorality that would justify this reputation.

Friends:
Joey and Chandler's apartment supposedly being "small." While not as big as the others' apartments, it was still fairly big. Also, their apartment being a dive. While it might not have been quite as fancy as Monica and Rachel's, it was still a pretty good looking and decently kept apartment.
Chandler being bad with women in later seasons. Early in the show, writers occasionally make him shy about chatting up women or women being put off by a joke that falls flat. However, he's usually viewed as being the "funny one", able to swoop in and charm women with a laid back attitude and humor. His problems with women are pinned down as having commitment phobia or not getting women in the first place. After his relationship with Monica kicks off, he's increasingly written as the guy that can't even chat women up and mocked by the gang for being so bad with women. This is despite being the only guy in a stable, functional, happy relationship with a beautiful woman while Joey and Ross are single, divorced, pining for people they can't have, or otherwise completely dysfunctional about women.
Phoebe is known to be a horrible singer by her friends and strangers, but her singing voice would be considered average or below average in a real life setting and not as horrible as the bad singers you would see on American Idol.

What The Hell Did I Just Read: A Novel of Cosmic Horror: Played for comedy. Dave keeps referring to John's friend Nicky as a horrible person, the kind who laughs too loud at her own jokes and no one else's. Dave pointedly excludes her from the narrative, so we have only his word to go on, until the very end, when she shows up and seems perfectly normal.

Left 4 Dead series:
The first Left 4 Dead has Bill, a Vietnam veteran whose knees are messed up due to the shrapnel injury he got during the war. Despite the fact that Bill complains about having to go up flights of stairs, he can run up and down stairs without any problems during the game.
Left 4 Dead 2 states that Coach injured his knee during his days in college football and it sacked his football career. On top of this, Coach is overweight, which would make running and climbing more difficult for him. The injury and weight problem is shown off in the opening intro scene where Coach has to take a breather from climbing up several flights of stairs (while the younger and more fit Nick, while still noticeably out of breath, is blazing on past him), but Coach is not hindered at all during the actual game.
