* The Grineer from ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'' are an entire race of [[CloneArmy human clones]] programmed to be fanatically loyal to the Twin Queens, which, thanks to damaged DNA sources, get [[CloneDegeneration worse and worse]] with each successive generation. Occasionally, the production line will churn out a Grineer with more severe defects than most; in some cases (such as [[PintSizedPowerhouse Clem]] and the members of the [[DefectorFromDecadence Steel Meridian]]) these defects include free will, [[WeHelpTheHelpless compassion]], and [[OneManArmy a serious capacity for kicking ass]].

** [[ZigZaggingTrope On the other hand]], you could produce Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}...
** Coming from said individual's perspective, while Asperger's is a socially harmful condition, the social handicaps just mean that you have to work around them, making gained ability that much more meaningful, truly exemplifying this trope.

* Being transgendered. Sure, it is extremely painful and when left untreated, ''will'' lead either into insanity or suicide, but when properly treated, it can be an enormous asset. The transgendered are usually able to understand the mindsets of both men and women, and socialize with both with ease. Also many male to female transgendered look much younger than they really are and age slower than genetic females.

* An interesting example occurs in the ''Fanfic/ProjectDarkJade'' fic ''Fanfic/ShadowsAwakening'', [[JackieChanAdventures Jade]] [[FreakyIsCool actually]] ''[[IJustWantToBeSpecial likes]]'' her new powers, and is only trying to remove them because of her EnemyWithin[=/=]SuperpoweredEvilSide the Queen, who is slowly corrupting her.

* LampshadeHanging in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'': In order to receive certain ([[BrokenBridge required]]) abilities, Mario must open locked chests containing demons that dramatically "curse" him with the ability to turn sideways, fold into a paper airplane, etc. Voluntarily, and with no downsides. By the fourth one, Mario can see where things are headed and tells[[note]]or rather, he [[HeroicMime mimes it]] and the chest [[RepeatingSoTheAudienceCanHear repeats it so the audience can hear]][[/note]] the chest to just shut up and curse him already. The chest expresses disappointment at not being able to perform his big scene. These demons are actually the legendary heroes who [[SealedEvilInACan sealed away]] the BigBad the first time, only to fall victim to said BigBad's own curse and become demons locked in chests, fated to curse whatever gullible sap they can trick into letting them out. They use a bit of LoopholeAbuse to get away with giving curses that are actually beneficial.

Mario then relents and lets him do so, after which the chest goes through the motions and then, as an aside, thanks Mario for letting him do his thing.

** During the ''WebVideo/CinemaSins'' video of ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', Jeremy finally has had enough of Mystique claiming humans wouldn't find her attractive in her normal form: a nude, busty blue ActionGirl. He retorts it would be almost ''impossible'' for a straight man ''not'' to be turned on by her.

** Seemingly, nothing. The resident OmnidisciplanaryScientist (who is also a gorgeous woman) tests it and notes that a) the "curse" appears to be ''the will of the universe'' and b) his constant accidental groping has given him an ungodly talent at it, and any girl he used it on would fall for him. Including her.

** Let us not forget the Literature/{{Animorphs}} themselves. Tobias flat out calls [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Morphing]] "the Andalite's Curse". After a while it seems as though ''anyone'' who has a power is bound and determined never to enjoy it. Then again, they ''are'' consequently involved in a lonely war against alien invaders, and Tobias's lifespan ''is'' greatly shortened in his hawk form ([[spoiler:though he always has the option of [[ShapeshifterModeLock locking]] himself in human form]]). We must also remember that he more or less voluntarily chose to be stuck in hawk form, so the shortened lifespan probably doesn't bother him.

** In ''VideoGame/SpiritTracks'', Princess Zelda is cursed into [[spoiler:being a ghost]]. This allows her to [[spoiler:fly, turn into a fairy-orb and possess Phantoms, effectively making her physically stronger than she was when she was actually, well, physical]].
