** 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/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/{{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.

** Even their other 'water powers' aren't always great. Cleo, Rikki, and Emma could kill someone in seconds, as well as move, boil, or freeze water (respectively). And, um... what exactly can Bella do? Oh, right, make pretty statues and jello.

* A recurring character on the Canadian sketch show ''Comedy Inc.'' is a tantric sex master who has achieved the state of constant orgasm. It's quite clear from his attitude that it's not as good as it sounds.

* Jack Bauer of ''Series/TwentyFour'' could qualify despite not having a superpower (other than the power to be BadAss). He's an incredibly talented CTU agent, the best in the field, the go-to guy for every problem concerning National Security. At the cost of his family, friends and co-workers getting killed, being a wanted man by terrorists and foreign nations, and virtually having no chance at a normal life because when he tries, he always gets sucked back in.

** Kelly can [[{{telepathy}} read minds]], but has no filter between her own and her mouth, and having to hear what people think of her makes her even more [[AMindIsATerribleThingToRead paranoid, insecure]] and [[ForgotAboutTheMindReader aggressive]] than she already was.

* Parodied in a ''ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'' sketch, wherein a man bitterly angsts and curses about his supernatural ability... to levitate biscuits. It's a curse, apparently.
