* Josh [=McGrath=]/Max Steel of ''WesternAnimation/MaxSteel''. While an accidental infusion of nanoprobes gives him abilities including super strength, super speed, invisibility, and the ability to change his appearance, he comes close to dying before resident genius Berto suggests experimentally dosing him with transphasic energy ("The Max Probes need transphasic energy to survive, and so does your son. I think."), and there was the chance that it would just kill him faster. Naturally, it's a success, but Josh/Max needs continued exposure to transphasic energy to survive (there are at least three instances where a lack of energy comes close to killing him) -- and in a worst case scenario, if enough of the probes are badly damaged or destroyed, then Josh/Max will die.
** The [[MaxSteel2013 2013]] series follows tradition. Max [=McGrath=] can generate Turbo Energy, but he can't control it. An alien named Steel can control it, but he needs Turbo Energy to survive. Any lengthy separation will result in Max exploding and Steel starving.

* Garnet of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has future vision, an ability to see different possibilities for how a situation can turn out. While this comes in handy for battle, it's stated that she sees all of the different ways her loved ones can be hurt or killed.
* 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]]...

** Padparadscha has a malfunctioning version of future vision which only shows her the recent ''[[DelayedReaction past]]'', and she seems either [[PowerIncontinence incapable of turning it off]] or [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny too distracted by the past too look at the present]]. In the exact reverse of Garnet's situation, this is such a hindrance that Padparadscha [[TheLoad cannot survive without the help of others]], but [[ThePollyanna she couldn't be happier with her life]].

** 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 have 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.
** But because he's still the Pumpkin King, he can't escape Halloween even when he's trying to be Santa Claus. The result? Some very [[MyLittlePanzer dangerous toys.]]

* Having been chosen by the Amulet, Jim Lake Jr. from ''WesternAnimation/{{Trollhunters}}'' is forced to be the Trolls' champion at everything (even at the most menial of tasks), especially since dark forces of every shape and size want the Amulet for themselves. Being the first human Trollhunter doesn't exactly warrant much confidence in the people he is sworn to protect either. Even worse, he just can't get rid of it, since the Amulet refuses to be thrown away until he is dead (unless it is stolen, in which case he has to get it back the old fashioned way).

* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'', Kara, one of the Oracle Twins, has the ability to see the future. But here's the catch; she can only see the good things that are going to happen. Sure, that doesn't sound too bad, but then she explicitly explains ''why'' it sucks.
-->'''Kara:''' When you only see good things, nothing's special anymore. All the pleasant surprises are taken out of life.

* 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.

* 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.
