* In ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', Manjyome prides himself as a tough guy, which is ''usually'' a good thing. However, in one episode, his two snobbish brothers insist a duel with him, on the condition he only uses Monster Cards with 500 ATK or less. This leaves Manjyome unable to comply, literally. With the exception of his Ojama Yellow, every monster he has is just too powerful. To help him build a deck that complies, Daitokuji-Sensei directs him to a well where several cards deemed weak and useless were thrown away.

* * Being able In both ''Anime/GenesisOfAquarion'' and ''Anime/AquarionEvol'', the main characters are known as "Elements", or humans who have been born with a supernatural ability. Some of these are awesome. Others are... not. For instance, ''Genesis'' has Reika, whose Element power is causing misfortune (usually to turn everything herself) and Tsugumi, whose Element power is causing uncontrolled explosions around you her whenever her heart beats too fast. ''Evol'' has main character Amata, whose power causes him to sand sounds [[RuleOfCool cool]], if not particularly useful. Tell that to Kyrie of ''Manga/SandsOfDestruction''. He [[IJustWantToBeNormal just wants to be normal]] fly when his heartrate increases... but he can't really control it too well, and doesn't enjoy he was bullied for it in the fact that past, so he hates it. Shrade's power revolves around manipulating human emotions through music, but unintentional use of this power as a child lead to his PowerIncontinence makes him a danger parents killing each other and massacres regularly breaking out whenever he played. He seems to have gained control over it by the entire world.time of the series, but the psychological scars from his past remain.

* In ''Manga/MahouShoujoNanteMouIiDesuKara'', the main character Yuzuka is a MagicalGirl... whose outfit is a two-piece swimsuit. It ''does'' serve a practical purpose - her powers are [[MakingASplash water-themed]] and a normal magical girl outfit would end up getting wet - but she's still [[ReluctantFanserviceGirl highly embarrassed by it]]. The fact that her MentorMascot is a bit of a pervert doesn't help.

* In ''Anime/ReadOrDie'', being a PaperMaster is a [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower pretty sweet deal]], if you're inventive enough. The downside? Biblophilia on a massive scale. A love of books and reading that progresses beyond "love" into "life-destroying obsession". The protagonists of both the original OAVs and [[Anime/RoDTheTV the TV series]] adaptation are shown as being so crazy about books they can hardly live normal lives; beyond making themselves unemployable because they are constantly forgetting about their tasks, or even showing up at work, for the sake of reading, they drive themselves bankrupt in pursuit of more books to add to their personal libraries and even endanger their health through a combination of spending money that should be used for clothing, bills, ''food'', etcetera on ''yet more books'' and getting so caught up in reading that they [[ForgetsToEat forget to eat, sleep and bathe]].

* 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.

** Suzaku may not have a Geass, but he does get a command from Lelouch to "live", forcing Suzaku to survive by whatever means necessary. For a DeathSeeker like Suzaku, this is bad enough as it is. But it goes FromBadToWorse. Thanks to the "Live" Geass, [[spoiler:he ends up nuking Tokyo and causing thirty-five million deaths when using the nuke was the only thing left to keep Kallen from killing him]]. Then it becomes CursedWithAwesome as he turns the command into a quasi-[[GundamSEED SEED mode]]. [[spoiler: In the GrandFinale... well, let's say that he was given a FateWorseThanDeath. God, it sucks to be Suzaku!]]

* Urabe, the mysterious girlfriend of ''MysteriousGirlfriendX'', has some pretty amazing psychic powers... which work ''exclusively'' through saliva-drinking. She can drink someone else's or someone else can drink hers, but spit has to be involved. (That's right, folks, she's blessed with suck-based powers...) As a result, this trope applies equally well to the manga/show ''itself'' -- its unique and clever concept is the same thing that keeps many potential readers/viewers away.

* In ''Manga/CastleTownDandelion'', this is how [[spoiler:Aoi]] views [[CompellingVoice Absolute Order]], her RoyaltySuperpower, because she's [[TeenGenius smart enough]] to see the FridgeHorror and there is too much dissonance between her ability to subconsciously control minds and her [[NiceGirl genuinely sweet nature]] causes a lot of distress. Ever since she discovered it, she became unsure of whether the kindness others show to her comes from their own volition or her compulsion. The possibility of the latter made her reluctant to become the monarch.
