* The Drow of ''TabletopGames/DungeonsAndDragons'' are occasionally subjected to this - powerful clerics of the spider goddess Lolth may find themselves inexplicably stripped of their powers, or in extreme cases devolved into elf-spider hybrids called Driders. Some who persevere and keep their faith are eventually given their cleric abilities (and/or original form) back, and claim that it was a SecretTestOfCharacter on the part of their goddess, but given Lolth's ChaoticEvil nature it's just as likely that she's messing with her followers for giggles.

* In ''Manga/MedakaBox'', [[spoiler:Kumagawa gives his RealityWarper power "All Fiction" back to its original owner in exchange for a new power, "Book Maker". Book Maker allows Kumagawa to generate a special [[ImprobableWeaponUser screw]] that, if it pierces someone's body, puts them on his level: no amazing powers, no superhuman abilities, nothing. During his final battle with Medaka, he challenges her to take Book Maker head-on and see the world through the eyes of a [[BornLoser Minus]]. She agrees, and not only does she stay the same, she gains greater insight into the Minuses ("Winning isn't strength! [[{{Determinator}} Real strength is losing and getting back up!]]"). She still beats Kumagawa, but because it was fair and square he [[GracefulLoser accepts it gracefully]], completing the HeelFaceTurn he started earlier. Later still, Kumagawa receives a new power, "Incomplete", which allows him to generate a battlefield of giant screws -- and he can hide a Book Maker among them to surprise an opponent.]]
