** There's also the Vorta, once a timid ape-like species until one saved a changeling's life. The changeling promised to make the Vorta strong and powerful. Indeed, the Vorta are second only to the changelings in the Dominion and feared throughout the galaxy. But the founders [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished eliminated their free will]] and programmed them to [[SycophanticServant worship the founders unconditionally]] regardless of how horribly they're treated.

* The mermaids on ''Series/H2OJustAddWater''. If you think about it, turning into a mermaid when you are exposed to water sucks major ass if you have to keep up The Masquerade. What happens if it's a rainy day, or if you have the power but live in [[TheOtherRainforest a really rainy area]]? What happens if it's summer and you and your non mermaid friends/family want to go swimming? What happens if you need to shower, wash your hands,? What if you want to join the swim team or be a life guard? Remember when the one girl got hit full-on by a sprinkler when out and about? Maybe you could hide it for a short time, but not forever, and not without some kind of consequence.

* The western anthology series ''Dead Man's Gun'' ran on this trope as its premise. A variety of people in the Old West gain ownership of a rare and well-crafted revolver, which seemingly changes their fortunes overnight and instantly propels them to fame and fortune. However, the gun is also ''cursed'', and leads nearly everyone who owns it to befall terrible consequences like DeathByIrony, DeathByGreed, a FateWorseThanDeath and more. There's a reason for this -- it's revealed in the final episode of the series that [[spoiler:the gun's original owner[=/=]creator is the Grim Reaper, who imbued the weapon with its cursed properties]].

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' has the Three-Eyed Raven. Able to project their consciousness across space and time to learn anything about the past, able to warg into any willing creature to control them and see through their eyes, and so overwhelmed by their newfound knowledge that their humanity and self are distant at best.

* ''Series/{{Lexx}}'': Kai, last of the Brunnen-G, is an undead assassin who has existed for thousands of years, and has a variety of skills that make him nigh-invulnerable, such as being an ImplacableMan who can heal from otherwise-fatal injuries like beheadihg or bisection, carrying a brace that he can control ''with his mind'', and [[NoSell no-selling]] every attack anyone tries to inflict on him -- and he fights on the heroes' side, to boot. The trade-off comes at a significant price, though -- Kai runs on "protoblood", a finite resource produced by his creator (who is killed in the pilot episode and wouldn't bother to create more of it anyway), leaving him functionally inoperable without it. Several episodes are also written around Kai's deficiencies. Due to having his corpse stripped of carbon, he is much heavier than normal and has SuperDrowningSkills. Other episodes force him to remain in cryosleep as the crew searches for alternate sources of protoblood, or the rest of the crew being in peril due to him repairing from an otherwise-fatal injury.

** Medic from ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'' has the ability to heal people, but in the process she copies their emotions. Since she works with the series' villains and thus heals people with a ton of negative emotions, she ends up being extremely bitchy. [[spoiler:She was actually a good person at first, since she absorbed a wooman's honest love and devotion to her dog, and at the end of the series she uses her dying breath to heal TheHero, copying his noble personality and [[DyingAsYourself dying as her true self]].]]

** Season 8 has Buffy become Superman. Everyone's happy about this, except for Dawn, [[GenreSavvy who expects more power will lead to bigger consequences.]]

* In ''Series/IronFist2017'', the Hand are able to bestow the gift of ResurrectiveImmortality to their most loyal followers, so that if they die (without being [[spoiler: decapitated or cremated]]) then they can come back to life. This does, however, have the downside of inflicting upon them a form of self-destructive curse, causing them to destroy that which they love the most in fits of sociopathic rage.

* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'': Jool has a [[MakeMeWannaShout scream]] that can melt metal. Where it really sucks for her is when other characters injure or scare her in situations where they'd find it useful.

* Parodied in an episode of ''Series/TheAmandaShow'' with a group of teenagers with superpowers, including telekinesis, seeing the future...and, in Josh Peck's character Billy's case, [[RhymesOnADime "super rhyming."]] Not only was this a completely useless ability, he [[PowerIncontinence couldn't turn it off]] and was compelled to rhyme every time he opened his mouth (at one point, we see him groaning at his own PainfulRhyme, implying that he didn't want to say it). It also made him unable to have conversations: he couldn't talk until someone else did, because he had to choose a similar-sounding word for the sentence, and in some cases just babbled nonsense ("If you spill a soda, you have to...mop...fizz" or "I don't like lemons, because they're sours") because he couldn't find a meaningful rhyming word to contribute.
