Added DiffLines:

* Later ''Franchise/KamenRider'' shows aren't exempt either. A few notable examples:
** ''Series/KamenRiderOOO'' has two separate instances where one of the [[BigBad Greeed]] absorb a large number of Medals from another one of their kind, causing them to transform into [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever a large rampaging monster]] that's much less dangerous in a direct fight than their normal HumanoidAbomination forms.
** Late in ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'', [[GreenEyedMonster Micchy]] attempts to kill Kouta by using a new form given to him by the local MadScientist, Yomotsuheguri Arms. Despite its foreboding appearance, it's in a constant state of ExplosiveOverclocking that leaves Micchy writhing in agony so much that he can barely even attack. The form proves absolutely worthless in defeating Kouta, [[spoiler:except in that [[HeroicSacrifice he lets Micchy kill him]] to take it off]].
** ''Series/KamenRiderGhost'' gives its main character the powerful [[AllYourPowersCombined Grateful]] form, which has a wide array of powers and is considerably stronger than the lesser forms that combine to make it, but the villains introduced immediately after its introduction have the ability to cripple the source of its power almost at will, causing it to often be less useful than if he'd just stuck with a lesser form. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Said villains make the same mistake at the end of the show]] and combine into a single form that can be KilledOffForReal instead of being able to revive each other like they could as individuals.
** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' gives out an early MidSeasonUpgrade, Drago Knight Hunter Z, which is a big suit of dragon-themed armor that can be split between multiple Riders or all worn by the same user at once. While the full armor is very impressive and looks like it should grant a SetBonus, it's actually the opposite: it's based off a CoOpMultiplayer game, and trying to play solo makes the user ''weaker''.

** Then in "Earthlings", [[spoiler: Jasper tries this again with a Corrupted Gem Monster in order to defeat Smokey Quartz, Steven and Amethyst's fusion. Not only is the resulting fusion still no match for Smokey, but it ends up turning Jasper into a Gem Monster as well.]]

**As is the Fusion of the modern day Homeworld Rubies. It's big.....and that's about it. Plus, like it's component Gems, [[SuperGullible it's not very bright.]] In it's first appearance, Steven gets it to back down with an obvious lie. In it's second appearance, the Crystal Gems quickly break it apart within moments of it being formed.

** This is somewhat justified: [[spoiler:you trigger the transformation into Mettaton EX by flipping Mettaton's switch, so the transformation is more of a BalefulPolymorph. Neo has far higher stats than EX at least, but is a GlassCannon, and at that point his 9 DEF is tantamount to toilet paper to the [[OvershadowedByAwesome player]], who has acquired so much LV.]]

* Happens to Aang of all people in the season 2 finale of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender.'' While powering up into his [[SuperMode Avatar State]], Azula takes the opportunity to shoot him in the back with lightning. Normally, this would just be a subversion of TransformationIsAFreeAction, but it exploited the Avatar State's only weakness: dying in that form ''ends'' the Avatar's cycle of reincarnation. If Katara hadn't been there to revive Aang with some magic water, he would have died/stayed dead and the Avatar would ''never'' have returned, cementing the Fire Nation's control over the world indefinitely (at least until the world tore itself apart with no Avatar to keep things in balance).

If Katara hadn't been there to revive Aang with some magic water, he would have died/stayed dead and reincarnation, so the Avatar would will ''never'' have returned, cementing be reborn. It is ultimately something of a glass cannon: God-like bending ability aside, the Fire Nation's control over the world indefinitely (at least until the world tore itself apart with no Avatar to keep things in balance).is still no less mortal than any bender.

* Done hilariously in ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD.'' BigBad [[spoiler: Garrett]] has survived his well-deserved NoHoldsBarredBeatdown at the hands of {{Deathlok}}, broken free, killed his guards, and gotten into the machine that's the finalized version of the tech that created {{Deathlok}}, right? High-tech armor is painfully built into and around him, making him the ultimate Deathlok with the appearance of his comics incarnation. Now ready to begin his plans anew, he starts to launch into this rant that would not be out of place in a [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] comic... and then [[spoiler: Coulson casually disintegrates him with a weapon from earlier in the series, says "so that's where I left that," and walks off without giving Garrett a second thought.]]

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', [[spoiler:Zamasu decides to stop playing around and fuses with Goku Black using the Potara Earrings to become Merged Zamasu, with Goku and Vegeta one-upping that to bring back Vegetto. As they fight, Merged Zamasu's body starts falling apart - as Vegetto points out, the Potarra Earrings can only work right with two gods as anyone else would just defuse after an hour. Merged Zamasu is both mortal and god and can't handle it at all.]]

** The Absorbing Man has continued his fine tradition of absorbing the wrong power in the cartoon series ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes''. The first time he, after fighting the Hulk with limited success as steel, transforms into rock. The Hulk immediately smashes his arms, pointing out that he can smash rock. The Hulk even sarcastically refers to him as "Einstein" for that move. The next time, he absorbs Mjolnir. Which, to be fair, seems like a good idea, but overlooks the fact that Thor can control Mjolnir. And now he's got ''all'' its properties.
