** Then, in season 5, something like this happens to [[spoiler: Illyria]]. She's still a little on the superhuman side, but now she's bound by causality and linear time, just like the rest of us. This is devastating to her.

* ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'' has Calypso. She was a titan who was trapped on a lonely island for thousands of years. Finally, Leo returns to her and takes her. When Calypso leaves the island, she becomes an ordinary human.
** Later it turns out that she has retained her special beauty and her magical powers, but she is no longer a titan, and has lost most of her powers.
* In ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'', there is Simon Lewis. He begins as an [[{{Muggles}} ordinary human]], but soon becomes a vampire. After a while, he gets the ability to [[DaywalkingVampire stay outside in daylight]]. Toward the end of the book series, however, he is transformed back by a demon into an human being. But shortly thereafter his friends find him, and make him a shadowhunter.

* ''TheGuardians'', human-angel hybrids, can choose to Fall and become normal humans. They will still have highly diminished versions of their superpowers. The longer they spent as Guardians, the stronger those superpowers will be when they Fall. Many Guardians regarding Falling and being human as a retirement, after a long career of fighting evil.

* Nanase [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2009-10-29 suffers one of these]] in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' when she uses too much mana in a fight. In this case, being brought down to normal comes with a hair color change; it changes to black as a side-effect of burning out magically. This is apparently a relatively common occurrence, to the point that hair color changes are a recognized medical condition (though it's referred to as a "spontaneous" change as part of the {{Masquerade}}.) Subverted as Nanase can, even without her magic, [[BroughtDownToBadass lift 200 pounds]] (she [[IThoughtEveryoneCouldDoThat doesn't seem to realize this is unusual]]).

* ''Film/ThePowerpuffGirlsMovie'': Giant Chemical X-fueled Mojo Jojo topples off a skyscraper and onto a puddle of Antidote X, returning him to his regular chimp size.

* A variant occurs in ''Literature/Birthright2017''. Sabrina shares her magic with Ko-Kraham, who is in reality much more magically powerful than Sabrina. As a result, Ko-Kraham is able to suppress any attempt Sabrina makes to actually ''use'' the magic, making her functionally powerless.

* ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'' starts with excellent wizard Veres being beaten to pulp (his hands were broken so he couldn't use magic). Throughout the entire story he's self-healing slowly. Until he heals, the process consumes all of his magic, forcing him to rely on his swordsmanship (not a good thing when you're fainting every now and then) and wit.

* ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'' starts with the excellent wizard Veres being beaten to a pulp (his hands were broken so he couldn't use magic). by supposedly random tavern thugs. Throughout the entire story he's self-healing slowly. Until he heals, the process slowly but surely thanks to a special spell. The downside is that said spell consumes almost all of his magic, leaving him with only ten percent of his normal power and forcing him to rely on his swordsmanship (not a good thing when you're fainting every now and then) and wit.wit, as using even the smallest amount of magic makes him faint half the time.
