* A major twist in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' deals with this. [[spoiler: The vast majority of HalfHumanHybrids do not inherit their ghoul parent's powers, instead being born with superhuman physical abilities. Their lifespans are significantly shorter than either parent species, essentially breaking down internally by the time they reach their early 30s. To make matters worse, they are purposefully bred by the CCG as an army of TykeBombs, and sent out to work as Investigators from the time they are [[ChildSoldiers 15 years old]], knowing that they will either die in combat or break down within 20 years. The oldest known case, 32-year old [[TheAce Kishou Arima]], eventually chooses to commit suicide rather than continue to break down from old age]].

* In ''Manga/OnePunchMan'', Saitama is the strongest hero of all: he has the power to [[OneHitKill defeat any enemy with a single punch]]. This causes him frustration and ennui, however, since none of his fights are challenging or satisfying.

* Stands in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' are a reflection of the Stand User's fighting spirit. [[ActualPacifist If the Stand User has no fighting spirit]], though, it can actually become ''harmful'' to the user, as was the case with Jotaro's mother.

[[ActualPacifist If the Stand User has no fighting spirit]], though, it can actually become ''harmful'' to the user, as was the case with Jotaro's mother. Even if one DOES have the strength to control their Stand, it may still suck as [[WeirdnessMagnet Stand users are drawn by fate to other Stand users]], meaning that it is very likely that they will be forced to use their power to fight.

* ''Anime/EdenOfTheEast'' is a series about twelve people from different walks of life who are all given 10 billion Yen and a special phone with a number to a {{Hypercompetent|Sidekick}} woman name Juiz who can arrange for seemingly anything they ask no matter how impossible or absurd the request may be, from having the Prime Minister of Japan assassinated to [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments making him cry uncle during a live press conference]]. There's only one catch: they have to use this money to "save Japan". If they spend the money on themselves, they'll be killed, and they'll be killed if they fail or [[NoResignationsAccepted try to abdicate]]. This "blessing" negatively affects almost all their lives.

* [[TransformationRay Jusenkyo]], the famous Valley of Cursed Springs from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', is capable of bestowing either CursedWithAwesome or BlessedWithSuck upon those who receive its magical touch- it all depends on what spring, specifically, a person falls into. Some springs provide definite superpowers. Others, however...
** Ryoga Hibiki's piglet form is small and adorable, an instant hit with any cute girl he meets. However, Ryoga is so nervous around women that this just makes him uncomfortable, and being adopted by Akane as "P-chan", when she's normally oblivious to his feelings, is like torture to him. Beyond that, he goes from a MadeOfIron [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength destructively strong]] martial artist into a weak and helpless animal considered delicious by man and beast alike. Couple this with the fact that he's often deep in the wilds when the curse goes off, and you can see why the pain outweighs the gain in his mind.
** Shampoo's cat form is just as small and helpless as "P-chan", though less personally risky... however, her [[AccidentalMarriage unwilling boyfriend]] has ''issues'' with [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes cats]] due to an [[HarmfulToMinors ill-advised training regime]] he was forced into by his [[SinkOrSwimMentor father]], which means that the slightest splash of cold water, from any source, will send him running for the horizon.

** Ranma Saotome's [[GenderBender Spring of Drowned Girl]] would, of itself, be a fairly neutral curse, but though less extreme than the others here, it's still a genuine curse to Ranma, though one he is pragmatic enough to take advantage of. His FairWeatherMentor, the DirtyOldMan & OldMaster Happosai, routinely gropes, fondles and otherwise molests him, as well as trying to force him into female underwear- which makes his {{Tsundere}} fiancee Akane Tendo get angry ([[ACupAngst and she's already ticked off over the fact Ranma's female form is better built]]), which usually means Ranma gets pummeled. He has two [[StalkerWithACrush love-crazed stalkers]], one of whom is a [[SelectiveObliviousness deliberately oblivious]] ''guy'', who routinely try to MurderTheHypotenuse, figuring that the same-gender form is a different person and a rival for the affections of the opposite-gender form. His alternate form got him a (symbolic) KissOfDeath from Shampoo that forced him to leave China before getting cured, a matter which got resolved... [[AccidentalMarriage unsatisfactorily]]. He later spends much of the series being forced to avoid his long-lost mother because he and his father have every reason to believe his curse will force him to commit {{Seppuku}}. However, Ranma does utilize one legitimate advantage from his female form in combat. He's faster as [[FragileSpeedster a girl]] than as [[MightyGlacier a guy]].
