* ''FanFic/PuellaArcanaSomniatorMadoka'' shows that showing up in the strange, unknown world will strip someone the powers of a [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Magical Girl]]. But surviving the Shadows in there and returning to reality will allow the person to unlock the potential and gain a Franchise/{{Persona}} instead. [[spoiler:This all happens after the Magical Girl turns into a Witch]].

* ''ComicBook/BatmanTeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'': This slowly happens to the Turtles and Splinter; after analyzing a sample of their blood Batman managed to acquire, Lucius Fox discovers that the mutagen that transformed them is incompatible with the laws of physics in the DC Universe, and thus, they're slowly reverting back to ordinary animals. Part of the plot is the Turtles and Splinter trying to return home before that happens.

Added DiffLines:

* Seen in the ''Trespasser'' DLC of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition.'' [[spoiler:The player character, having spent the bulk of three in-game years as the Herald of Andraste with a special magic Anchor on one hand that lets them do the impossible, has to have the hand in question removed from his/her body because the Anchor is going haywire and trying to kill them. Whether the Inquisition is disbanded entirely or merely downsized, the Inquisitor more or less retires to private life with his/her LoveInterest, no longer capable of doing the Herald-specific magic which made them so renowned.]] Of course, the character was a BadassNormal in the first instance, so this is less of a jarring transition than it would be for some, but it's still quite the shift.

* In ''Literature/VillainsByNecessity'', [[spoiler: the [[VillainProtagonist main character Sam]], in order to get the final MacGuffin, is forced to give up his personal identity as an assassin, essentially losing both the skills and psychological training he'd worked for all his life. One of his companions helps restore it to him just in time for the final confrontation with the story's BigGood Mizzamir.]]

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'': The Republic of Nikko Nikko started out as an [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Ordinary Middle School Student]], but was ''[[NoodleIncident somehow]]'' able to become a [[AnthropomorphicPersonification micronation personification]], much to [[TheStoic Japan's]] bewilderment. He then voluntarily gave up his status as a nation personification to live as a Japanese citizen once again. Though WordOfGod says he still represents his micronation, he's lost the [[Really700YearsOld immortality]] that nation personifications have and now ages normally, [[RidiculouslyAverageGuy has a steady job at the hot springs where his micronation used to be]], and has a young son. He doesn't seem to mind at all, and keeps in contact with the still non-aging micronations like [[CheerfulChild Sealand]].

* The [[ComicBook/HouseOfM M-Day]], natch. ComicBook/ScarletWitch, fed up with everything that went into and resulted from achieving mutant superiority, uses her power to declare "No more mutants." Thus, Earth goes back to what it was before, Bringing Down To Normal 90% of the mutants of the world ([[StatusQuoIsGod after all, looks like the X-Men are too popular to become]] {{Badass Normal}}s). Some of them, like Blob and Chamber, end up in dire straits thanks to losing their mutant powers but not the body alterations that occurred because of them (notably, Jono almost dies thanks to his power having burned away his jaw, throat, and much of his chest when it first emerged).

[[spoiler:hilariously inverted in that when Toad loses his powers, he becomes extremely handsome, which is how he would have looked had he not been born a mutant.]]

* In ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' There are a lot of cards that can be used to fulfill this trope by removing special abilities. Crash Landing in particular fulfills this trope by targeting only creatures with flying and has the flavor text: [[spoiler:"The other guilds think they're untouchable. It's time we brought them back down to earth."]]
