** Azula is a genius tactician, a master manipulator, and a prodigy firebender, at the tender age of 14. All of this came at [[SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining the expense of her social skills]], and her perfectionism ([[AbusiveParents as encouraged by her dad]]) ended up [[SanitySlippage doing a real number on her sanity]] when she learns that MachiavelliWasWrong. [[spoiler: Which is why she's in the middle of the mother of all [[VillainousBreakdown Villainous Breakdowns]] for the finale.]]

* Think being the leader of a town and having everyone in said town admire you would be utterly awesome? Try telling that to [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Jack Skellington]], who is the Pumpkin King of HalloweenTown. However, it's '''always about Halloween''', every single day, which is problematic when you want something different. Taking a break is not an option, as shown when Jack disappears for only two days, everyone is in a panic. Also, Jack seems to not be able to give the crown to anyone else if he wanted ("But who here would ever understand/That the Pumpkin King with the skeleton grin/Would tire of his crown, if they only understood/He'd give it all up if he only could . . . "), so he's stuck with the job. ''And'' if the scenes after "This Is Halloween" is any indication, due to being the biggest in-universe celebrity, Jack can't even having a decent conversation with anyone. And who knows how long Jack's been doing the Halloween job? He could be ReallySevenHundredYearsOld for all we know. When you think about it, [[TheWoobie you can't blame the guy]] for desperately wanting to try out Christmas.

* Aang from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Sure, he's the Avatar, a godlike human being who can manipulate all four elements to balance out the world. Sure, he's the bridge between the Spirit World and the regular world. Yeah, okay, he's the spirit of the planet all rolled into one dude. His past lives worked out just fine being the Avatar. Unfortunately for Aang, he doesn't get to wait until his 16th birthday to be told that he's the Avatar. Nope, some grumpy old dudes tell him when he's ''twelve'' because they fear a war is soon to break out. They make plans to take Aang away from his guardian, so Aang runs away...and gets frozen inside an iceberg for 100 years while a war sweeps across the world while he's gone. Then when he gets out of the iceberg, he has to fix everything! By himself! With a bunch of scary guys trying to capture him! And he's 12.

** Heck, just being a Bang Baby has its own problems. Not only do people in general fear and distrust you (much like mutants in the X-Men universe), but the government is secretly working to experiment on you, ''and'' it's eventually revealed that the mutagenic gas which granted people their abilities has a tendency to [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity make people go crazy]], which is why so many of those exposed to it turn to a life of crime.

** Permafrost was AnIcePerson with the power to generate massive snowstorms and totally freeze over anything she touched...trouble is, she was a homeless teenage girl with schizophrenia ("the voices in the dark" gave her the title Permafrost) and general mental health issues. And her powers were tied to her emotions--seeing other people happy and content while she starved on the street was enough to trigger a blizzard. Thankfully, she eventually seeks out the help she needs.

** Time Zone from Static Shock. Her powers caused her to randomly slip back and forth through time. Gear built a belt that stoppped the random travelling, and enabled her to mechanically control her powers -with a ''remote control''. Time Zone was then at the mercy of whoever had the remote.

** Talon has the powers of flight and a sonic scream...but they come at the cost of her looking like a bird-human hybrid.
** Mirage, who has the power to manipulate light to [[MasterOfIllusion create realistic illusions]], lampshades this trope when her criminally-minded brother suggested that their abilities were a blessing: "You call this a ''gift?'' We're FREAKS!"
** Some Bang Babies have interesting powers that come with serious physical alterations. Hyde has super-durable skin...that makes it look like a rhinoceros's back was grafted onto his body. Ferret has superhuman smelling powers...which emerge from his decidedly inhuman nose. D-Struct can generate powerful ionic blasts...but looks like a massive giant made of pure white energy.

* The eponymous Lucky Lou from ''WesternAnimation/JinxyJenkinsAndLuckyLou'' is BornLucky, but she seems to feel her natural luck has made her life boring; she looks forward to a walk in a gentle spring rain only for it to immediately clear up,and her attempt to jump in a puddle is thwarted by it being covered by a sheet of wind-blown newspaper. Then she meets [[TheJinx Jinxy Jenkins]]...

* On ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsAndCousins'', "Wishing Well" sheds new light on the powers of Wish Bear. First off, her power apparently forces her to constantly hear the inane wishes of everyone in Care-a-Lot, i.e. "I wish I had remember to set that timer," "I have a stomachache; I wish I hadn't eaten that cake," etc. Furthermore, if someone actually makes a truly heartfelt wish right in front of her, then that's when the real fun starts. Her belly badge power will grant it, even if the wisher (and everyone else) may not really be ready for the consequences.

* Lampooned in a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iOcxSXiw7I Cartoon Network ad]] starring the Wonder Twins from ''SuperFriends''. It ends with Zan complaining how his only power is to turn into "a wave or a puddle" and how he could easily be defeated by an evil sponge. After Jayna leaves, he is accidentally used to mop a floor by the janitor.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan's'' Electro is amazingly powerful, but suffers from extreme PowerIncontinence, particularly when angry, rendering electrical devices inoperable or destroyed by power surges. He has to wear a suspiciously ineffective insulation suit at all times to avoid harming others, and can't even ''eat'' without discharging electricity. Small wonder that he [[ComesGreatInsanity freaks]] [[FreakOut out]] and [[PsychoElectro goes on a rampage]].
** Similarly, Rhino has his suit, which has him become super strong and completely impenetrable... Which is too bad, considering that he needs to rehydrate every few minutes, otherwise he'll pass out.

Peter becomes a ShapeShifter, Lois gains SuperStrength, Chris becomes a [[PlayingWithFire pyrokinetic]], Stewie wields [[PsychicPowers telekinesis]], Brian gets SuperSpeed, and [[ButtMonkey Meg]]... can grow and shrink her fingernails.
