* In ''Comicbook/{{PS238}}'' this seemingly happens to [[spoiler:Ron/Captain Clarinet]], though afterwards he gets {{Re Power}}ed instead. It turns out that [[TheMedic Nurse Newby]] actually runs [[TropaholicsAnonymous a support group]] for [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividuals metahumans]] with this problem; [[TheProtagonist Tyler]]'s parents make him attend too, despite him actually having [[MuggleBornOfMages a different problem]].

* In the ''VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga'', between ''VideoGame/JediKnightDarkForcesII'' and ''VideoGame/JediKnightIIJediOutcast'', Kyle Katarn ends up willingly giving up his Force sensitivity, giving his lightsaber to Luke for safekeeping. This results in a HopelessBossFight early in ''Jedi Outcast'' against the BigBad Desann, since there's nothing an ordinary merc can do against a powerful Dark Jedi. After that, Kyle ends up getting {{Re-Power}}ed in order to go after Desann. [[spoiler:It turns out that he was playing right into Desann's hands, as the latter wanted to find out the location of the Valley of the Jedi, so that he could create an army of Force-sensitive Reborn]]. Kyle learns his lesson and accepts his destiny as a Jedi, becoming a teacher at Luke's academy.

* In ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'', Nate loses his steel skin (as well as his knowledge of history), when when Creator/GeorgeLucas decides to leave the movie business before making ''Film/StarWars'' and ''Film/IndianaJones'', since the former inspired Ray to become a scientist (and turn Nate into a meta), while the latter inspired Nate to become a historian. During the ''Series/CrisisOnEarthX'' crossover, [[spoiler:Stein's death means Jefferson can no longer become Firestorm, so he leaves the team, even though he's the only one aboard the ship who knows how to keep the ''Waverider'' running]].

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', Barry loses his powers several times. The first time, he's drained by Blackout and tries to use different means to jump-start his speed again. It finally works when Blackout is about to kill Dr. Wells, revealing that his abilities are, at least in part, powered by his emotions. In Season 2, he's forced to allow Harry to drain all of his speed to boost Zoom. Team Flash ends up recreating the dark matter explosion to make Barry fast again, and it works (albeit after he proves to the Speed Force that he can let go of his mother's death and move on). In Season 3, Wally is temporarily robbed of his powers after [[spoiler:Barry (and therefore [[FutureMeScaresMe Savitar]]) gets LaserGuidedAmnesia]]. Cisco also develops handcuffs that temporarily dampen metahuman abilities.

* In the ''Series/BabylonFive'' episode ''Dust to Dust'', Psi Cop Alfred Bester shows up on the station to track down a drug supply which gives mundanes telepathic abilities. Given that he is himself a powerful telepath whose history with the station crew, has, ahem, created certain trust issues, he is forced to take "sleeper" drugs which completely inhibit his ability to read minds.

He then uses the Psi Corp's reputation to trick a suspect into confessing by merely being present at the interrogation and blurting out "he's lying" at some point (he figured the guy had to be lying about something).
