** Zeus is widely regarded as the god of sky and thunder, as well as the god of rulers (being the TopGod and all), but he was also the god of laws, oaths, [[SacredHospitality hospitality]], and assembly. Given how important these virtues were to Greek life, this more or less made him the god of society itself.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', being the son of Thor [[spoiler: (and cousin of Jean Grey)]], and thanks to a lot of meddling by Doctor Strange, Harry won the SuperpowerLottery big time:
** He's an Omega Class psychic (though he explicitly remarks Jean is a great deal more powerful than he is, and when he [[spoiler: goes up against Maddie Pryor, he does everything he can to avoid a straight fight because she'd steam-roller him]]).
** He's got the physique of a developing demigod (which, by the start of the sequel, he's roughly on par with a SuperSoldier).
** He's got his magic, which is a great deal more powerful thanks to his emerging heritage, and has a particular knack for PlayingWithFire.
** He's also got a blessing from his godmother, Wanda Maximoff, that ensures he'll be a MagneticHero. Oh, and [[spoiler: his mother's protection takes the form of a fragment of the Phoenix Force, which Lily merged with, and has previously used to speak through him, resurrect him, and destroy everything in sight.]] By the sequel, he's figured out how to tap into it, though everyone with a lick of sense says that this is a Very Bad Idea.
** As it turns out, though, it's mostly a case of BlessedWithSuck: until chapter 45, his PsychicPowers don't manifest in any meaningful way, he doesn't even start to learn how to use them until around chapter 65, up to which point his PowerIncontinence means that he's a danger to himself and everyone else around him - to the point where he accidentally traps Ron and Hermione in a memory and nearly gets them killed. And afterwards, it is [[CurbstompBattle brutally demonstrated]] what happens if he tries to go mind to mind with a more skilled and experienced psychic that he can't overwhelm with raw power. Until around chapter 50, his physical abilities are pretty much on par with a physically fit, if quite tall, young teenager, and after his SuperStrength starts coming in [[PowerIncontinence (randomly)]], he lives in mortal fear of accidentally [[{{Fingore}} crushing someone's hand into paste]] or worse. Until chapter 70, the only power that works reliably is his magic, and even then, while he's got a rare gift for PlayingWithFire, he's still basically a MasterOfOneMagic.
*** Oh, and Hank [=McCoy=] and Charles Xavier theorise that his mutant powers and Asgardian abilities may come into conflict, leading to epic PowerDegeneration, melting his brain. And that's if [[spoiler: he doesn't go Dark Phoenix first]].

And telepathy Also, telepathy, telekinesis, and heightened intelligence.intelligence. However, she may just have PsychicPowers, her FlyingBrick powers being a manifestation of that, like the 'Psionic Superman' theory that was popular in the 80s and 90s.



** '''Mimic''': can duplicate the abilities/training of anyone he's around was the original power, but thanks to AllYourPowersCombined, permanently has the original X-Men's powers: [[EyeBeams Cyclops' optic blasts]], [[PsychicPowers Jean Grey's telepathy]], [[WingedHumanoid Angel's wings]] (and presumably the secondaries that come along with them), [[AnIcePerson Iceman's ice powers]] & Beast's strength & agility.

He can still copy the powers of others, at half-strength.



** {{Downplayed}} by Cyclops, who has EyeBeams and... a seldom-mentioned instinctive perfect understanding of geometry. Not strictly a RequiredSecondaryPower, but it certainly comes in handy when he wants to bounce his EyeBeams off of several reflective surfaces to attack enemies at strange angles. [[MundaneUtility And it makes him unbeatable at billiards.]]

Not strictly a RequiredSecondaryPower, but it certainly comes in handy when he wants to bounce his EyeBeams off of several reflective surfaces to attack enemies at strange angles. [[MundaneUtility And it makes him unbeatable at billiards.]]]]
** '''Jean Grey''' is nominally a telepath and telekinetic... but at full power, even without the Phoenix, she can manipulate molecules with her telekinesis, go sub-atomic, and do basically whatever she likes short of being a fully fledged RealityWarper - and with the Phoenix, all bets are off. Additionally, her teenage self's new signature ability is a combination of both her telepathy and telekinesis, manifesting her astral form in the real world, absorbing all the psychic energy around her and sending it back out again. Very shortly after it manifested, she successfully went up against freaking ''Gladiator'' (something helped by the fact that he's a FlyingBrick whose abilities are based on PsychicPowers).
** Her various children are no slouches, either.
*** '''Rachel Grey''' is a massively powerful telepath and telekinetic, and sometimes called 'the One True Phoenix'. Additionally, she's a [[TimeMaster Chronokinetic]] of awe-inspiring power, being the one behind Kate Pryde's mental time travel in ''ComicBook/DaysOfFuturePast''. She also later used this power to send Scott and Jean to the future on their honeymoon to raise baby Cable, and one future self became Mother Askani, matriarch of the Clan Askani, a bunch of weird, predominantly female psychics who pretty much wrote the book on psychic time travel, and even later used it as part of the famous 'Cross-time caper' story in ''{{ComicBook/Excalibur}}'', which involved the titular team bouncing around a lot of alternate timelines.
*** '''Nathan Summers''' a.k.a. Cable is also an incredibly powerful psychic, probably even stronger than Rachel when uninhibited by the techno-organic virus. His birth, after all, was engineered by Mister Sinister to destroy Apocalypse. Even under normal conditions, he's proved capable of using his powers to teleport, as well as 'step between moments', essentially stepping out of time. As Saviour Cable, when the virus was switched off, he became a PhysicalGod capable of holding up a giant island city, fighting the Silver Surfer and repairing everything they were destroying in the process. As he remarked while smashing the Surfer's board, "I didn't turn myself into everything I ever fought against, a god, just to come up short!"
*** '''Nate Grey''', the baby of the bunch, and Cable's ''ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse'' counterpart was explicitly artificially engineered by that world's Mister Sinister to kill Apocalypse, and has fair claim to being the strongest of the family. Aside from massive scale PsychicPowers, he's also capable of: {{Psychometry}}, [[{{Seers}} Precognition]], AstralProjection (including making astral forms solid, something he did on pure instinct... to Professor Xavier, who was on the verge of becoming Onslaught, who promptly used that particular trick to wreak havoc. Can you say NiceJobBreakingItHero?) creating psychic armour powerful enough to hurt Thanos and the Hulk, then later allow the Hulk to beat up Thanos), [[TimeMaster stop time]], and [[{{Teleportation}} teleport between universes]]. This isn't a complete list, either. At the higher end, he was a fully fledged RealityWarper, and it was a running plot point in his series that he was genuinely afraid of waking up to find that he'd accidentally rewritten the world around him.
** And then there's '''Hope Summers''', who basically won the SuperpowerLottery forever: she has the power of any mutant around her, at full power and potential, and she can take on as many powers at once as she likes. Stryfe also remarked that she was potentially an Omega Level psychic, like him, which seems fairly plausible. Oh, and she might be Jean Grey reincarnated, and was most certainly born to be the host of the Phoenix.

* ''{{Manga/Naruto}}'': [[SuperpowerfulGenetics Kekkei Genkai]] sometimes provide extremely random ability combinations.

** '''Rinnegan''' (become an InstantExpert, use all five ElementalPowers when no one else can, see chakra, [[spoiler:summon an EldritchAbomination that lets you animate six human bodies with their own unique power, and summon the being that has control over life and death]]), and the ones with them can still learn other regular techniques.
*** The two aforementioned eye powers can be combined to form the '''Rinne-Sharingan''', which has all the benefits of the above plus [[spoiler:high-grade dimensional translocation and formation, as well as the ability to perform [[LotusEaterMachine Infinite Tsukoyumi]] without the assistance of the [[WorldTree Shinju]]]].
** '''Byakugan''', which is [[InformedAttribute supposed to be just as powerful]] as its cousin-technique the Sharingan, has seen no major powers or upgrades short of telescopic, (almost) 360-degree X-ray vision, and seeing the chakra points on people. {{Averted|trope}}. [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway What kind of lame power is vision, anyway?]] However, later in the series it's revealed [[spoiler:that the ancestor of the Hyuga clan supposedly had the same multitude of powers that his brother, the Sage of Six Paths, had, while still having the '''Byakugan'''. To top it off, it has been demonstrated that several generations' worth of Byakugan eyes can be collected and combined to form the '''Tenseigan''', which allows the usage of a limited variant of the aforementioned Six Paths power, and a flashy chakra mode to boot]].

It can also be used to subtly hypnotize an unwary target. Where it gets crazy is the [[DeadlyUpgrade Mangekyō Sharingan]] which seems to ''actually'' be random with different user having different abilities (one for each eye and one for them together). These include advanced hypnosis, setting things ablaze with immortal flames, summoning a flame that cannot be extinguished, teleportation, sucking objects into an alternate dimension, become intangible, telekinesis, summoning giant guardian deities capable of divine abilities like sealing souls or cutting an entire mountain and with swords that can cut through mountains, a shield that can block almost anything, a gourd that can seal souls.

** '''Rinnegan''' is if anything even more outrageous than the Sharingan. First of all it allows whoever possesses it to use all five elemental powers when no one can use more than three and most people can use only one. A person with the Rinnegan is also a instant expert for all jutsu. It appears to have the same x-ray vision and chakra sensing abilities as the Byakugan. Finally it allows the wielder to [[spoiler:summon an EldritchAbomination that lets you animate six human bodies with their own unique power, and summon the being that has control over life and death]]).

* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'': Almost every {{Yokai}} has the ability to shapeshift into a human, but every race has their own unique powers, meaning that almost every Yokai has at least two abilities. Additionally, Yokai heal faster than humans.
** The succubi are shown to have one of the widest set of abilities. They can hypnotize men and kissing them in their state allows a succubus to make them into their eternal slaves. They can also create illusions and dive into people's dreams. Among their natural physical abilities, they can lengthen their sharp finger nails and have wings for flying. And apparently, if the anime is concerned, they can fire beams with their giant boobs.
** While Vampires don't shapeshift into humans due to their very human-like appearance, they do have many abilities beyond their signature SuperStrength. They can transfer their blood into different people, which slowly turns them into ghouls/vampires. They can detect yoki (demon aura), they have deception skills and can charm people, they can regenerate and shapeshift into something different. Their shapeshifting ability is an almost forgotton one, due to modern vampires preferring to look as aesthetic as possible, and their regeneration is usually not that high. However, Shinsou, who are much more powerful vampires, have exceptionally high regeneration powers and they can form armor on their bodies. Alucard is also capable of absorbing other living beings.
