* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9443327/1/A-Third-Path-to-the-Future A Third Path to the Future]]'' despite her desire to install such devices in every room, [[WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution Jean Grey]] quickly realizes she'll have to only install hard light projectors in a few important locations in her universe's equivalent of Hogwarts. While Literature/HarryPotter got the land for free, hard light projectors require technology so prohibitively expensive that six of them drained nearly the entirety of his vast fortune. If not for Death rewarding him with the fortune of an immortal he'd killed, Harry would've gone broke very quickly.

* The ''Galaxy Crusher'' in ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' is a star-sized Demon superweapon capable of erasing an entire ''galaxy'' with a single shot and has the defensive firepower of over half the entire Demon Imperial Navy. However, [[RealityEnsues the sheer collateral damage it causes and its mind-boggling logistic requirements]] (and the threat of it being turned against its creators) led Maledict to deactivate it after it was only used once. The entire Demon military itself can also pretty much described as AwesomeButImpractical, focusing on enormously large and powerful battle machines that are expensive to operate and replace.

* In ''FanFic/ThisBites'', Soundbite quickly realizes that [[spoiler:with his new transceiver, he can call every Transponder Snail in the world or none of them, no in-between]].
** Somewhat averted in the latest chapters when he realizes that he can both call people like a regular transponder snail, and also that he can create a 'dead zone' the size of say [[spoiler:Enies Lobby]] where they are unable to receive [[spoiler:the SBS broadcast]] and thus unable to preempt the attack.

* In ''[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-31008/HeatherSin+Butterflied.htm Butterflied]]'', [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Xander]] is (due to the actions of a [[Franchise/StarWars Sith]]) TheAgeless and automatically copies the form, skills, and memories of anyone he comes in contact with. The problem is it's automatic so he can't not do it if he makes skin contact, and doing so knocks him out for several hours afterwards. The Sith who made him that way intended to make him her new host body but realized the shapeshifting was rather useless for infiltration.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11955570/17/When-Fate-Intervened When Fate Intervened]]'' a crazy wandmaker comes up with a nearly two-foot monstrosity which only works for Harry. Its spells are six or seven times more powerful than usual - at the cost of ''thirty'' times the magical effort. And this is just for a ''Lumos'' spell.

* ''FanFic/FireEmblemFatesAftermath'': Corrin's crown is ornately decorated, but it's also pretty heavy. He elects to have a more practical crown made to be worn on a daily basis, delegating the fancy crown to only be used for special occasions where it would be appropriate.
