Does anyone know of any games where one character has an overblown stat and a severely underdeveloped one as their class?

Ex:

Paladin: High Attack and Magic twice as the highest of the second highest in the party.
But ridiculously and severely low Defense both Physical and Magic?




Also any other character class designs than is completely different than the common ones, Fire Mages/Dragon Sword Tamers, or the normal 4/6(check the tropes).

If you want character classes that are completely different you need to think "outside the box". You can either base classes off of already existing sources or create your own, but you need to develop a system to make the classes enjoyable in their differences.

There's always minmaxing in Dungeons and Dragons computer RPGs.


Not like how I designed it.
Its going to be very extreme.
As usual I neglected to mention this wasnt for a MMORPG.

I know, I was asking if it had been done before?
