# By far, the most common variation is that the writers have seen fit to give you a special power that is, to be frank, [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway stupid]] or {{useless| superpowers}}.

* ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'': A teenage Hercules has superhuman strength but is very clumsy sometimes; Megara saved her boyfriend's soul, but is Hades' slave (also, said boyfriend dumped her shortly after that)

to:

* ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'': A teenage ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' has this in spades:
** Hades has all kinds of incredible powers--he can [[PlayingWithFire easily control flame]], never ages, and possesses immortality. Unfortunately, he's been assigned a job that he hates--dealing with dead people all day--while the other gods get to spend their days on the sunny Mount Olympus. Because of the nature of the job (there's always someone new dying), he's stuck in the Underworld and never gets a break.
**
Hercules himself has superhuman strength but SuperStrength. Yay! But that SuperStrength [[PowerIncontinence never turns off]], and when combined with the natural klutziness of a teenager, it leads to pretty much everyone in his hometown hating him (they outright call him a freak). Plus, he's a god among men and doesn't know it, so he spends his entire childhood/teenage years feeling like he doesn't fit in with other humans.
** Meg has apparently been granted immortality and eternal youth by a god. Trouble is, that god
is very clumsy sometimes; Megara saved Hades. And she only gained her powers by making a DealWithTheDevil--she sold her soul to save her boyfriend's soul, but is Hades' slave (also, said boyfriend dumped life, and he repaid her shortly after that)by running off with another woman. She's now has to do whatever Hades tells her, and as a result, doesn't seem to have any friends or people she's close to.

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', everyone's got a Semblance, a special power that only they can do (super speed, creating illusions, etc). However, it's later established that not all Semblances are cool and useful: your Semblance can be, for instance, to cause misfortune to the people around you.... The character in question does note that it can be useful when in a fight because it causes bad luck for their opponent, but it also means that they have to keep away from family and friends. [[spoiler:The character in question is none other than Ruby's uncle Qrow.]]

* 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.]]
