Added DiffLines:

** A common non-lethal punishment imposed by the Inquisition is depowering, effectively turning an Other into a normal human with no ability to use magic. A ''worse'' punishment is to leave ''some'' magic for the person to use, constantly reminding him or her about their former power.
** In ''School Supervision'', a genie-type Other creates a spell book that allows an Other to be depowered. She uses it along with a copy of the ''Fuaran'' text to turn a group of vampires and werewolves into top-level Others with a perfectly gray aura (neither Light nor Dark).
** At the end of ''Sixth Watch'', [[spoiler:Anton sacrifices himself to save everyone else. Instead of killing him, though, the EldritchAbomination makes him human permanently]].

* [[spoiler: Sparrowhawk]] in the later books of the ''Literature/{{Earthsea|Trilogy}}'' saga by UrsulaKLeGuin. It is even theorized by another character later that the ability to always pop up exactly where he was needed was actually his greater power, which he retained.

* Done awesomely in ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', during the final battle against [[ComicBook/{{Superboy}} Superboy-Prime]]. Up to that point, Prime had defeated the Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}}, the ComicBook/TeenTitans, and the ''entire [[GreenLantern Green Lantern Corps]]'' and seemed utterly unstoppable. Then both Superman of Earth-One and Earth-Two show up with a plan. Moving at max speed, they fly Superboy-Prime through Krypton's red sun Rao and the kryptonite asteroid field that use to be Krypton before crash landing on [[GeniusLoci Mogo]]. Afterwards, all three Supermen lose their powers and the fight for the fate of the universe is settled in a normal, human-level brawl.

** Later on, Polgara believes she has given up her powers as a price [[spoiler:to bring Durnik back to life]] and spends several weeks living as a normal human. Turns out she had overlooked the ExactWords the deal had entailed, which was for the two to become equal as part of her sacrifice. Rather than her losing her power, it meant that Durnik GAINED powers of his own as a result of his resurrection.

* 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.
