* ''{{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".

** ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' was created after her cousin Superman had got most of his power upgrades, so she had a lot of different powers from the beginning. In ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'' -her first appearance- she uses her super-strength, hurricane breath and x-ray vision... in the same page!

* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfAmber'': The Amberites basic package includes superhuman strength and endurance, regeneration, telepathy and dimension hopping; various family members also have prodigous weapon skill, sorcerous powers, or shapeshifting. Most of these [[JustifiedTrope make perfect sense]] given their background (part of which you don't find out about until fairly well along in the Chronicles, because Corwin himself doesn't know it). See the series page for more details.

* The Gems of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' each have a combination of unique skills, often without an apparent theme to them. [[TheLeader Garnet]] has [[{{Seer}} precognitive abilities]], a RocketPunch, [[ShockAndAwe electrokinesis]], can swim in lava, and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers summon her]] CoolShades [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers or a pair of diving goggles.]] The latter at least appears to be a stock Gem ability, as one universal Gem power is shapeshifting, which they use to create their clothes. [[spoiler:Granted, Garnet's strange mix of powers can be partially explained as coming from two ''[[OppositesAttract very]]'' [[OppositesAttract different gems]] in a perpetual FusionDance.]]
