* RegionalRedecoration: Earth Bet has taken quite a few hits since Parahumans first appeared.
** Leviathan has sunk islands and shattered coastlines with relative ease, including Kyushu and Newfoundland. [[spoiler: After his attack on Brockton Bay, he leaves behind a fairly sizable lake in the downtown region.]]
** [[spoiler: When Jack Slash convinces Scion to destroy the human race, Scion first experiments by destroying Great Britain with relative ease. Deciding that he likes the feeling, he then bombards the east coasts of America and Canada, killing tens of millions of people. By the end of his rampage, entire landmasses have been destroyed and whole alternate Earths rendered uninhabitable.]]

* Lobotomy: It is heavily implied that [[spoiler:Contessa gave Taylor a double bullet lobotomy at the end of the story because Taylor more or less became an insane demigod, well, that or a coma, which says something about the story since this actually might be considered to be a good ending for Taylor]].

* OnlyFleshIsSafe:
** Faultline can split apart any object she touches by tracing lines on it with her fingers, in effect creating her own [[ShatterpointTap Shatterpoints]]. It doesn't affect living organic material, be it flesh, leaves or wood.
** Many other ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' characters share that limitation such as Vista, who can only [[SpaceMaster bend space]] unoccupied by biological life and Rune, whose telekinesis only works on inanimate objects. This is because of the Manton effect, which is theorized to be a psychological block that prevents some capes from using offensive powers directly on living targets, and later revealed to be [[spoiler:the shards keeping their host parahumans from accidentally harming themselves with their powers. Also, it encourages innovative uses of powers by said hosts]]. As a result, capes with offensive powers that ''don't'' fall under the Manton effect tend to be ''extremely'' dangerous to fight.
