* In the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda Legend of Zelda]] fanfic, FanFic/ZeldasHonor, the villains (Naar and his commanders) are nigh impossible to kill. They revive mere moments after death, regardless of how mutilated they get. It almost seems a losing battle until [[spoiler: Link and co. figure out the source of their power is the linked shards of the Fierce Deity Mask residing in their bodies, cursed with demonic magic from the old world, that grants them this horrible immortality. Once Link heals the mask properly and all pieces are returned]], Naar and the rest are suddenly mortal and die ignoble deaths quite swiftly. ** ''Film/StarWars'' ** A Star Wars version here: ''[[https://m.fanfiction.net/s/7034896/1 The Princess And The Pirate]]". The Imperial-aligned captors of Luke, Leia and Han put them in a room with some kind of small, furry mammalian creatures that somehow sap the two Force users' power and prevent them breaking out. Luke eventually solves the problem by killing them. However, it accidentally happens again later, when a young rebel thinks Leia would like one of the cute critters that he finds in another area, and lets it loose. Leia faints, but Luke's able to tell him to get it out of the area

** At times the whole ''Ben 10'' show seemed to play with the idea of losing powers. It was a story formula, he would use his alien powers, beat the tar out of several guys, then the true big bad would show up, and the Omnitrix would be out of juice, Ben would then have to use his wits, creativity, and family to hold them off till he could juice up again. Presumably, they got tired of that because in "Ben 10: Alien Force" he never runs out of juice and changes from form to form at will.
