Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/{{K}}'', Saruhiko Fushimi is accused of this - hopping between Clans because he doesn't want to commit to a King, but at the same time, he doesn't want to give up the power that comes with being a King's vassal. [[spoiler: Of course, his King said this in the middle of a fake fight that they had planned, to show Saruhiko quitting the Blue Clan before he goes into the Green Clan undercover. So yes, he is loyal.]]

** When Tobias is given the ability to morph again, he's also sent back in time to absorb the DNA of his past-self. This gives him a choice: he can remain a hawk, but be able to morph again, or he could, at any time, choose to morph into his human body permanently, and once again lose the ability to morph. It is ultimately a choice between being a fully-functioning Animorph again or a normal kid again, and he chooses the former.

* This happens to Berserker Orson in the ''RecordOfLodossWar'' TV series. Naturally, he has to become a berserker again in order to save his partner Sheris.
* [[spoiler: Asuna]] of ''MahouSenseiNegima'' has an odd case of this. Long story short, she's a princess from a magical world who became a normal schoolgirl at great effort, and is in the process of losing that normality because she hadn't factored in her own behavior post LaserGuidedAmnesia, and is therefore running headlong into what she ran from ten years before.

* At the start of the second season of ''CodeGeass'', Lelouch has lost his memories of his mother and sister, and of having been the terrorist leader Zero ([[spoiler:all thanks to the Emperor's memory-altering Geass]]) and is back at Ashford, acting much like he did at the start of the series. Even though the choice is pretty much taken out of his hands by C.C. restoring his memories, it's shown that he's still dissatisfied with the current state of affairs and apparently only lacked the motivation to return to his old life.

** In the current series, the ComicBook/RedHulk depowered the Hulk by absorbing all his gamma radiation, saying that Bruce Banner would never become the Hulk again. Banner was GenreSavvy enough to know that eventually he'd [=reHulkify=] and spent his time preparing for that day.

* On {{Smallville}}, when Clark gets his powers [[PowersAsPrograms transferred to]] a would-be hero, he thinks it's great. Until the "super boy" [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity lets it go to his head]] and acts irresponsibly, Clark has to reluctantly get his powers back [[BecauseDestinySaysSo just as we all knew he would]].

* This is precisely how ''SailorNothing'' starts. Himei's status as Sailor Salvation has been officially revoked, but it doesn't eliminate any of the powers of her or her AnimalGuardian Dusty. The only change is, she refuses to be Sailor Salvation any longer, so she isn't. And she's still fully aware of when [[TheHeartless a Yamiko]] is created, so it's not like she can live in blissful ignorance...

* Woody from ''QuantumAndWoody'' suffers from this; even after losing his energy-blasting powers and a breakup with his partner and best friend, Woody is shocked when he answers police calls unbidden and realizes he's got ChronicHeroSyndrome.
* [[TheHulk Bruce Banner]] has been "permanently cured of being the Hulk" on several occasions, only to have to [=reHulkify=] himself to solve some crisis. Why they don't use the same [=deHulkifier=] on him again after the crisis is resolved is rarely if ever explained.

* In the last big PreCrisis StoryArc for ''Comicbook/GreenLantern'', Hal Jordan decided that being GL had ruined his life, and resigned. For about a year, John Stewart wore the ring, but Hal's journey to Find Himself got as much panel time as John's costumed adventures. Ultimately, Hal realized that [[strike: he was a directionless, unmotivated loser without the twin crutches of the Ring and the Corps]] being Comicbook/GreenLantern was his [[BecauseDestinySaysSo one, true destiny]].
