* [[MysteriousWaif Ixpellia]] from ''AudioPlay/StrikerSSoundStageX'' has the ability to cause [[NightOfTheLivingMooks the Mariages]] to arise, whereupon they would immediately sally forth into battle. Great when you have to fight in a war. Not so great when you neither need nor want to fight anymore and your undead warriors with one track minds won't stop no matter how much you beg them to.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': The most elite soldiers (including the top 10 members of the 104th) are the ones selected to fulfill the critical part of dangerous missions because they have the best chance of succeeding. While this takes them away from the [[CannonFodder "decoy" force]] in most operations, they also have a high risk of dying and have the additional burden of knowing that if they fail, [[ShaggyDogStory all the sacrifice has been for nothing]].

* Otono-Tachibana Makie from ''Manga/BladeOfTheImmortal'' is subject to much RealityEnsues related [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]] and [[BreakTheCutie general misery]] in relation to her curse of being the [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman jaw-droppingly gorgeous]] [[{{badass}} mothereffin']] [[UpToEleven absolute]] [[TheAce pinnacle]] of [[TheGift natural talent]] [[WorldsBestWarrior in the world]]. To elaborate: When she was no more than ten years old she, without having taken so much as a single lesson in how to ''hold'' a sword, much less ''use'' one, defeated her five years older brother, the HeirToTheDojo, in a sparring match. This [[DrivenToSuicide drove her brother to commit]] {{seppuku}} out of shame; dishonoured the dojo and left it heirless as she, [[ValuesDissonance being a woman]], was not allowed to become its heir ''and'' made her father disown her and her mother, the circumstances forcing them to join a whorehouse. Which, according to her mother, wasn't so bad because [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold it's better to spend one's life comforting others rather than taking lives]]. Around this time Makie also saved the life of her second cousin, the aspiring BigBad of the series, Anotsu Kagehisa. [[RescueRomance Love was born at first sight.]] Only, to Makie [[KissingCousins it was the birth of true love of Anotsu]], but to Anotsu it was nothing but [[InLoveWithYourCarnage love of Makie's unbelievable skill with the sword]]. Many years later this leads him to attempt to recruit her for his dojo of CombatPragmatism, putting her wish to be loved (or at least be with the man she loved) and have a handful of happiness in her life in direct conflict with what her mother had taught her about being a decent human being... So Makie's nigh-superhuman battle prowess lead to the complete destruction of her entire family as well as making the love of her life want her as nothing more than a sword in his army, her beauty lead her to a "successful" life in prostitution and her blessing of suckage filled her life with nothing but [[BrokenBird self-loathing and more pain than any human should ever have to go through]].

* 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.

This "blessing" negatively affects almost all their lives.
