There used to be an animated Space Western cartoon called “BraveStarr”, back when I was a kid, that I watched religiously. Marshall Brave Starr had the ability to call upon various special abilities possessed by his spirit animals whenever he needed them. Bear gives him strength, Wolf gives him enhanced hearing, Hawk gave him enhanced vision and Puma gave him super speed. It was fascinating to watch an athletic polymath (polymathlete?) excel at so many things, but in reality (even without factoring the whole set-in-space Western thing), many people have only the time and talent to master one skill.
