* In ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', Simmons talks about terrible superpowers: a ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' [[http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/2008-09-13/ strip]], Dilbert's mother is visiting a psychic, but forgot her purse and thus couldn't pay. The psychic puts "The Curse of Competence" on her firstborn son, prompting Dilbert's mother to wonder why that would be a bad thing. As Dilbert (her firstborn son) finds out, when you're the ability to fly, but only north, and being able to teleport only competent person in a world full of idiots, you'll be the one foot at a time.everyone asks to make things work.

* ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'': A teenage Hercules has superhuman strength but is very clumsy sometimes; Megara is apparently immortal, but is Hades' slave
* Rapunzel of ''Disney/{{Tangled}}''. Oh sure, it's awesome to have hair that glows and heals any wound and reverses aging, but when you get kidnapped from your birth parents, and said hair grows 3 times as fast as regular hair, there are problems that can arise. For instance, it apparently takes 3 hours to brush her hair, and 6 hours to wash it. And with 70 feet of it by the time you're 18, it can also be a real drag (literally) to lug around. And yes, you could braid it to make walking easier, but then if it catches on anything, you're stuck.
* ''Disney/WreckItRalph'': "WHY DO I FIX EVERYTHING I TOUCH?!" MrFixIt powers are cool and all until you're trying to break out of prison and your efforts are simply making the prison ''sturdier''. Like a reverse ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman.
* Elsa in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' considers her powers this [[spoiler:until she learns to control them]]. Having [[AnIcePerson powers over ice and snow]] is cool. Nearly killing your little sister when you are both just children and years later [[spoiler: accidentally putting your whole kingdom in eternal winter]] due to PowerIncontinence is not.
* Moses from ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'' is God's Chosen One, but he is forced to be the instrument of the 10 Plagues of Egypt.

* In ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', Simmons talks about terrible superpowers: the ability to fly, but only north, and being able to teleport only one foot at a time.
* Just how pervasive is this trope? Well, on ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'', Strong Bad got an [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail192.html email]] asking what he would do if he had [[VoluntaryShapeshifting the ability to transform]]. Strong Bad ''immediately'' assumes that he'd have to somehow be Blessed With Suck:
-->'''Strong Bad:''' If comic books, cartoons, and Sci-Fi Original Movies have taught me anything, it's that shapeshifting comes with a bunch of boring rules and restrictions that limit its potential Turn-Into-A-Bulldozer-Whenever-I-Wantity. You can turn into a machine gun but not bullets, [[WeaksauceWeakness contemporary jazz]] turns you back to normal, you can only turn into [[WhatKindOfLamePowerisHeartAnyway presents your grandma's knitted for you]]. Crap like that. For example, let's say I could turn into any species... OF '''BALLOON''' ANIMAL!!??

* ''WesternAnimation/JinxyJenkinsAndLuckyLou'': At the beginning of the short, Lou is clearly tired of the almost-perfect life caused by her good luck.

This is OlderThanFeudalism, and it's a perfect way to teach the [[AnAesop Aesop]] of BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor. Can encompass WhoWantsToLiveForever and SoBeautifulItsACurse as well. The more general form of DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength.

# By far, the most common variation is that the writers have seen fit to give you a special power that is, to be frank, [[What Kind Of Lame Power Is Heart Anyway stupid]] or {{useless| superpowers}}.
