* Played with in ''FanFic/WithThisRing''. While it's good for Superboy to learn hand-to-hand combat, Orange Lantern fears that he's being held back by [[FightsLikeANormal Black Canary]]. [[DeconstructedTrope Black Canary is a good fighter, but she's still a normal human going against a Kryptonian. One wrong move from Superboy and she's paste. If Superboy gets too used to holding himself back, he will not fight at full strength in combat. ]] So OL asks Wonder Woman, who has over eighty years of martial experience and regularly wins against Superman and {{Nigh Invulnerab|ility}}le to train Superboy.

* Pewter-burners in the ''{{Mistborn}}'' books burn their metal to gain inhuman levels of strength, speed and stamina. However, this only lasts as long as the metal supply, and the power works independently of the burner's body - as in, they don't suddenly sprout muscles. Pewter-burners like Hammond instruct the main character, Vin, of the benefits of honing one's body without pewter to increase one's strength while using it, developing fighting skill alongside these abilities, and using pewter tactically for powerful strikes instead of turning it on all the time in a fight and flailing your limbs.

* When Franchise/WonderWoman lost her powers for a while in the 70's (the period when she wore the white [[SpyCatsuit catsuit]] instead of her normal costume), she trained under a martial arts master to help compensate. This was a bit odd, considering that she came from a ProudWarriorRace and therefore already had extensive training with unarmed combat.

Added DiffLines:

* People with mental powers in ''Literature/{{TheInfected}}'' tend to become a lot more formidable after meditation training. And everyone learns how to fight, whether or not they're invulnerable and can bench-press a truck, which only makes sense since the protagonists are all superpowered federal agents.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', the {{Badass}} BloodKnight Kenpachi is UnskilledButStrong, using absolute brute force to beat most opponents. But when he finally faces one whom brute force is useless against, he switches to his secret weapon: ''a basic kendo swing'' that Commander Yamamoto had forced him to learn... which is so powerful it causes his opponent to '''explode'''. In chapter 520, [[spoiler:Kyouraku's first order as the new captain-commander of the Gotei 13]] is to give Kenpachi more formal training to prepare him for Vandereich's next move. [[spoiler:Soul Society's ruling council actually doesn't want Kenpachi to get any stronger because they are worried he'll be unstoppable if he decides to rebel against Soul Society. Kyouraku convinces them that they need Kenpachi to become stronger, because if they lose in the current war, they'll be too dead to worry about such things. Kenpachi's teacher is '''Retsu Unohana, the first Kenpachi'''.]]

* This is the point of the Hero Certification Program in ''Literature/SuperPowereds''. It takes a ''lot'' to become a fully-licensed Hero (vigilantism is illegal and severely punished), and most Supers need tons of training in order to become good enough to be responsible for people's lives. A four-year program, the HCP trains Supers' bodies and minds for the hardship of being a Hero. All the professors are either former Heroes themselves or have been otherwise employed in risky jobs. This is demonstrated in ''Year 1'' when Roy, an arrogant strongman, tries to take on Chad, the top student in the class. True, Chad might not have Roy's raw strength, but he has lots of training, better speed and reaction time, and precision, and handily beats Roy. Since then, Roy trains hard and spars with Chad daily, getting slightly better each time, all in the hopes of one day besting Chad.

In ''Year 2'', Mary, a telepath and telekinetic with a high potential, ends up being shown by an old woman, a retired Hero with a similar powerset. While Mary may have the power, Professor Stone has decades of training and experience, not to mention a ''lot'' more focus, allowing her to control dozens of objects simultaneously.
