* In Fanfic/EtherealChronicles, Shion's Moonlight Breaker Artillery is a powerful LimitBreak attack which would be an in-universe GameBreaker, but it costs half of his current MP to use.

* 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.

-->'''Harry:''' What the hell am I supposed to do with a wand that I can only fire 3 to 4 times before I pass out from exhaustion? ASSUMING I haven't already used magic that day.\\

* 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.

* In ''[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11568253/3/Supernova Supernova]]'' Nami learns to use [[FlashStep Soru]] as early as the fight with Captain Kuro. Unfortunately she's isn't in good enough shape to use it properly so each use leaves her legs in agony.

* In George Orwell's ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', it's implied that the ForeverWar going own between the three superstates is a sham, and all the weapons they build are deliberately designed to be as flashy and intimidating as possible and waste resources as much as possible. They're not actually built for fighting and winning wars. This really bites them in the ass in ''Literature/AmericasStepbrotherAmericasEnemyTwoPointZero'', where the real life United States of 2012 is planted into the world of ''1984'' by spatial anomaly and Oceania decides to invade it. Up against far more advanced and practical American weaponry, the Oceanian military [[CurbStompBattle completely gets its ass kicked]].

* In Manga/{{Bleach}}[=/=]{{Naruto}} crossover ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6701262/1/True-Warriors-Never-Die True Warriors Never Die]]'', Naruto is the jinchuuriki of the [[EldritchAbomination Juubi]] which (in addition to having 2000 years to hone his skills) gives him destructive power comparable to [[BadassGrandpa Yamamato]]. The downside is that he has to fight the Juubi roughly every 1000 years to insure it doesn't try to destroy the world again. As he recently found out, the more he uses its power, the faster the Juubi recovers. [[spoiler:In fact, despite using his jinchuuriki mode only a few times, the Juubi is already stirring, 900 years early.]]
