* Fairly common in ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', even without counting RequiredSecondaryPowers and people who can copy powers.
** '''Circus''': Has minor [[PlayingWithFire pyrokinesis]], [[SuperReflexes enhanced reflexes]], ImprobableAimingSkills, and HammerSpace.
** '''Watch''': Has short range clairvoyance, [[FlashStep bursts of enhanced speed]], and can create phantom hands that can reach into people's bodies to do internal damage.
** '''Glory Girl''': Has a force field that provides SuperStrength and NighInvulnerability, as well as the ability to make people feel in awe of her.
** '''Triumph''': Has a HealingFactor, HeroicBuild, and [[MakeMeWannaShout sonic blasts]].
** '''Arbiter''': Can [[{{Omniglot}} learn any language almost instantly]], [[BarrierWarrior create force fields]], and [[MakeMeWannaShout sonic blasts]].
** '''Vantage''': Has scaling SuperStrength and SuperReflexes, as well as short ranged teleportation.
** '''Hoyden''': Has SuperStrength, SuperToughness (that scales with the range from which the attack comes) and [[MadeOfExplodium has the power to explode things by hitting them or letting them hit her]].
** '''Eidolon:''' [[SuperpowerLottery Combo Platter Powers ''are'' his powers.]] He can choose any three powers to use at a given time, and each gets stronger as he continues to use them.
** '''Scion''': Has {{Flight}}, SuperStrength, SuperToughness, immunity to certain powers, the power to cancel out wavelengths (this usually takes the form of a DisintegratorRay or AntiMagic), [[spoiler: an extremely rapid HealingFactor, interdimensional teleportation, CombatClairvoyance, BizarreAlienSenses that let him "see" everything around him, and MindRape via his power-bestowing "cells."]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/GrrlPower:''
** Maxima has the standard FlyingBrick package, metallic skin, SuperSpeed and reflexes, and can fire particle beams from her fingers.
** Halo has seven floating orbs that grant her different powers when held in a hand. The orange one fires an energy beam that can cut through a tank, the blue one lets her fly, indigo generates force fields, violet produces a telekinetic energy-pseudopod thing, yellow makes an illusion she can see through and gives her TrueSight [[spoiler: later unlocking the ability to teleport to her illusion]], and she hasn't figured out what the red or green ones do.
** And then there's Dabbler, the [[ alien cyborg succubus wizard gadgeteer.]]

* ''{{Dracula}}'': is supremely strong, hypnotic, commands animals, [[SuperSmoke can turn into a mist]], addict people to his blood, and climb walls like a spider. Most of these powers can be found in folklore about vampires, or previous vampire novels, but not usually all at once. And just what constitutes "vampire powers" is under dispute -- see OurVampiresAreDifferent for further discussion.
** Possibly justified in that Dracula says he studied at Scholomance, marking him as a sorcerer as well as a vampire (though which powers come from which is unclear).

* ''[[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk The Hulk]]'': He has SuperStrength, is NighInvulnerable, can create a stunning sonic boom with his hands, [[HealingFactor regenerates]], okay, all fit sort of with the "unstoppable force of rage" idea. However, two other, lesser-known powers: he can see, and HIT, ghosts and astral projections, and can home in on the site where the gamma bomb that created him went off. And [[SuperIntelligence supermath]]. The ability to automatically reduce collateral damage when levelling down entire cities. Officially, this is explained as Bruce being a 'hypermind', able to analyze and predict the consequences of his actions near-instantaneously. Hulk is also highly resistant to telepathy and mind control (it's mentioned that he was the only one who wasn't effected by the CosmicRetcon that wiped out everyone's memory of the Sentry, and neither [[ComicBook/XMen Professor X or Emma Frost]] can MindRape him), occasionally capable of absorbing radiation, and has limited reactive adaptation. He's shown adapting to being able to breathe under water and survive for a fairly considerable time in the vacuum of space (while still needing to breathe eventually). [[ComicBook/UltimateMarvel Ultimate Hulk]] takes it a step further, adapting to the atmospheres of Mars and Venus after limited exposure.

Added DiffLines:

Contrast OnePersonOnePower, where every super-powered person only has a single power (RequiredSecondaryPowers notwithstanding). Compare SwissArmySuperpower, SemanticSuperpower and ImaginationBasedSuperpower where some people have single powers that they can use in multiple distinct ways, creating an illusion of "having lots of powers".
