** '''{{Magneto}}''': control over magnetism, which was quickly expanded to include the entire electro-magnetic spectrum. He also has telepathy, though it is undeveloped.

* The Tane of ''Tabletop/{{Pathfinder}}'' all have this going on, reflecting both BizarreAlienBiology and their [[Literature/{{Jabberwocky}} origins]]. The Jabberwock has "[[EyeBeams eyes of flame]]", the "whiffling" of its wings creates a small windstorm, and it can "burble" to [[BrownNote confuse]] or [[MakeMeWannaShout kill]] opponents. The Bandersnatch has quills that cause extreme pain, can drive a person mad with a stare, and is a superb tracker, and some types are "frumious" and set themselves on fire [[TurnsRed when angered.]] The Jubjub Bird adapts to attacks, has a stunning screech, and its bite is a OneHitKO.
* This is how Legacy ends up in {{Sentinels of the Multiverse}}. The first member of Legacy's family to have powers developed a danger sense. His son was born with that ability, and also gained superior vision and speed. The next gained super strength, then over time added flight, superhuman charisma, invulnerable skin, and (as of the last Legacy in the game) laser vision.

* Yukari Yakumo from VideoGame/{{Touhou}} has the ability to manipulate boundaries, usually manifesting as portals to an eye-filled dimension. However, "boundaries" is so vaguely defined it pretty much boils down to "can do whatever she wants" like manipulating the boundary between youth and old age, life and death, reality and imagination... Thankfully, she only uses her powers to {{troll}} people, assuming she even gets out of bed.

** Wolverine had the above powers but with a different explanation: adamantium can only be molded in its liquid form -- after cooling enough to become solid, it instantly becomes indestructible. Thus, it had to be grafted to the subject's bones in its (''really'' hot) liquid state. Wolverine's healing factor allowed him to recover from the trauma caused by this (and thus was the reason he was chosen for the super soldier program). His claws were also implied to be implanted, rather than part of his skeleton, although this was later retconned in his origin movie

** Stranger stil, the Incredible Hulk has the ability to ... always find his way back to the SPECIFIC spot in the New Mexico Desert where he (The Incredible Hulk, not Banner) was first created, ie, the spot where the original Gamma testing took place. This was somewhat retconned by ''Creator/PeterDavid'' via TimeyWimeyBall [[note]]An evil version of the Hulk from the future was teleported into the original blast, and his spirit was calling out to the Hulk the entire time[[/note]] but for years it went unexplained.

* In ''FanFic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality'', this is the reason Harry thinks the Philosopher's Stone is a myth -- extending life and creating gold don't really have any logical connection, so it's clearly just an imaginary wish-granting machine. [[spoiler:It's real -- the connection is that the Philosopher's Stone's actual power is to make Transfiguration permanent.]]

** Jesus himself also counts. As described in the Bible, he does a lot of health-related miracles: [[HealingHands healing]] the sick, raising the dead, exorcising demons, miraculously providing food, etc. But he can also control the weather, walk on water, kill fig trees with his mind, and [[https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=matthew%2017:24-17:27&version=NIV make sea creatures pay his taxes]]. And then there's the stuff he gets up to in the Apochrypha...

** [[TheHero Goku]] has one of the most diverse movesets in the series thanks to his transformations, [[PowerCopy copy]], and physic abilities. He is one of the few characters in the series that can teleport, can read people's memories by touching them, is a telepath, and, at least in the anime, have a mild form of {{precognition}}. He also have SuperSenses such as enhance hearing, eyesight, and smell.
