* SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} recently lost his HealingFactor thanks to a serum Tombstone had engineered as part of his plot to get revenge on the Merc with a Mouth for the events of "Suicide Kings". This turned out to be a ''good'' thing for Deadpool -- the events leading up to this help him shake off his DeathSeeker nature and giving him a new will to live. The serum also restored his face.

* Spider-Man also lost his powers shortly after ''Acts of Vengeance'', via a plot of the Chameleon. In actuality, his powers were more suppressed than taken away. Initially, Peter wanted this, as it was one of those times he had grown weary of being Spider-Man. When he left the lab which held the machine responsible, he finds out quickly that his enhanced strength was a large reason he was able to web-swing, and almost got killed.

** 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.

* 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]]).
