** Jade Harley has a particularly interesting case of this. Since her sprite was prototyped with the corpse of her dreamself, it was merged into her upon her ascension to God Tier. So now she has the combined powers of a God Tier Witch Of Space, a sprite, and her dog (the other prototyping). It's made more complicated by the fact that her God powers and her Dog powers are very similar thematically, making it a bit hard to tell which power comes from what.

* Shows up quite frequently in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. Each sprite can be prototyped with up to two different items, granting vaguely appropriate powers. Then the Underlings get a random combination of prototypings, while the Kings and Queens get ''all'' of them.

* ''[[{{Sub-Mariner}} Namor the Sub-Mariner]]'': has everything you'd expect from a being built to survive underwater: strength enough to survive ocean pressure, agility and speed to swim quickly and efficiently... and tiny wings on his ankles that allow him to fly, making him a FlyingBrick. This last was eventually explained as a mutation caused by his [[HalfHumanHybrid surface-dweller/Atlantean hybrid]] heritage. Thus he's considered one of the first mutants of the modern age in the MarvelUniverse.

** '''Mario''': The title character has had a long list of powerups along the years, among them: A [[DropTheHammer Super powerful Hammer]], power to [[ElementalPowers shoot fireballs]], to [[{{Sizeshifter}} grow in size]], [[InvincibilityPowerUp temporary invincibility]], a flying raccoon suit that transformed into a statue, a Frog suit to swim faster, a turtle suit that gives him an infinite supply of hammers, a [[BestLevelEver giant clockwork boot]], a pet Dinosaur to ride on, a [[{{Flight}} Flying cape]] (which deflects projectiles in ''[[SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros Melee and Brawl]]''), rabbit ears that allow him to Glide and Super Jump, hats that let him become solid Metal, [[IntangibleMan Intangible]]/[[{{Invisibility}} Invisible]], or Fly, the ability to puff himself up like a balloon, a water gun that straps to his back, and the latest game gave him Ice powers, and Ghost, Bee, and spring transformations. Not to mention his vanilla standard powers of [[InASingleBound Super jumping]], SuperSpeed, and SuperStrength that he always has. New Super Mario Bros. Wii adds a Penguin suit that can swim like the Frog Suit, toss freezing snowballs like the Ice Flower, and walk on ice without slipping. And the Propeller Hat for flying. Plus has the Mini Mario from the DS game that is super tiny and can run across water without sinking.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'' ** Most of the powers evidenced by the martial artists can be explained as KiManipulation, e.g. {{flight}}, KamehameHadoken, SuperStrength, SuperToughness, [[SuperEmpowering "donating" ki to each other]], etc., or else by BizarreAlienBiology, e.g. the Saiyans' giant monkey transformation or Namekians' ability to merge and split themselves. ** Other abilities that don't fall under ki use are [[PsychicPowers physic abilities]] such as {{telepathy}}, [[MindProbe mind reading]], [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]], PsychicLink, and [[TeleportersAndTransporters teleportation]]. Those that falls under other are often called mystic abilities, such as the Namekians' ability to create the Dragon Balls or create clothes and objects. Characters like Goku and Frieza have a wide variety of Ki and physic abilities that makes them extremely dangerous in battle. The Kais, the gods of the Dragon World, have mystic powers that allows them to bring out other people's hidden powers or teleport anywhere in the lower realms.

* Most of the powers evidenced by the martial artists of ''Manga/DragonBall'' can be vaguely [[HandWave explained]] as KiManipulation, e.g. {{flight}}, KamehameHadoken, SuperStrength, SuperToughness, [[SuperEmpowering "donating" ki to each other]], etc., or else by BizarreAlienBiology, e.g. the Saiyans' giant monkey transformation or Namekians' ability to merge and split themselves. The occasional oddball does show up, though, such as when Piccolo fires a beam at Gohan that conjures clothes for him, or when Goku, apparently spontaneously, develops the ability to read Krillin's memories, which is never mentioned again.

* 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.

* Binders in ''Tabletop/DungeonsAndDragons'' tend to have very unusual mixes among their vestiges - one of the earlier ones is Dahlver-Nar, who grants toughened skin, a stunning moan attack, immunity to Wisdom damage, and the ability to share damage taken with another.
