* Almost everybody in ''GetBackers'' has one. Ginji starts going crazy if he is in his Lightning Emperor mode for too long. Ban can only use his Jagan three times a day, once per person per day. Himiko's acceleration perfume strains her body. Juubei's Black Flying Needles are controlled by a large magnet, and the force of the magnetic field wreaks all kinds of havoc on his body and blinds him early on.

* The ''{{Dragaera}}'' series has "Elder Sorcery", which involves the direct manipulation of raw chaos, and the practice of which is a capital crime by imperial edict. Those who research and practice it do so mainly out of curiosity or the search for knowledge, since elder sorcery has long since been supplanted by the ''much'' safer and easier use "normal" sorcery, where the energy of raw chaos is first filtered through the Imperial Orb before being used. However, there are some circumstances where normal sorcery doesn't work, forcing the characters to resort to elder sorcery.

* Overclocking a PC's CPU can help squeeze in a performance boost, but this is not something to be done casually; without a good cooling system, the extra heat and power consumption can potentially damage or destroy the CPU.

* Being a {{Deconstruction}} of the FightingSeries PlayedForLaughs, MutekiKanbanMusume parodies this trope when Kankuro tries to decide what thing he would imitate to beat Miki.

-->'''Akihiko:''' Shouldnít you have already decided on that?

-->'''Kankuro:''' Thatís impossible, [[VerbalTic nya]].

** Goku first learned the Kaio-Ken from King Kai, who told him not to use it at more than double capacity. Vegeta proved to be the GodzillaThreshold where Goku used it at triple capacity, which hurt like hell, and then ''quadruple'' during the BeamOWar. After that, Yajirobe made him scream in agony just by patting him on the back. By the time he fought Frieza, he was strong enough that he could use the lower levels without any strain, but Frieza was strong enough that he had to multiply it by ''twenty'' -- the maximum. Not only was it not nearly enough to win, it also left him exhausted and defenseless. Thankfully, Goku has the Saiyan racial ability to become stronger after surviving near-fatal encounters. The Kaio-Ken makes a grand comeback in [[spoiler:''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', where he combines it with Super Saiyan Blue (or Super Saiyan God)]]; this version only lasts a few minutes, has a 90% failure rate, and could be fatal if performed incorrectly, but ''damn'' is it powerful. It also [[spoiler:gave Goku temporary "Delayed Onset Ki Syndrome", which messed with his ability to manipulate ki.]]
** The other technique King Kai taught Goku, the Spirit Bomb, is powerful enough to destroy planets. King Kai had to tell him to use it sparingly.
** Tien's forbidden technique is the Kikoho (Tri-Beam in the dub), which will kill him with overuse or otherwise exhaust him to the point of being unable to fight.
** The Mafuba (Evil Containment Wave in the dub) is the technique Master Mutaito used to seal King Piccolo. It requires so much energy that it kills the user, as it did to Master Mutaito; when Piccolo comes back, Master Roshi tries it unsuccessfully and dies as well. It turns out [[spoiler:age may have been a factor; Tien survived trying to use it, although it still left him completely defenseless.]]

* In ''InazumaEleven'', [[spoiler:Teikoku]] has some hissatsu techniques, explicitly called "forbidden techniques", which are extremely powerful but strain the user's body; a single use is enough to cause searing pain, and three uses in a single match is liable to send the user to the hospital with the possibility of permanent injuries.

* In ''TraumaCenter: Under the Knife'' Derek's senior surgeon forbids him from using the [[BulletTime Healing Touch]] after his first intentional use of it makes him collapse after the operation... with the caveat he's completely aware Derek will merrily ignore this instruction if he thinks the Healing Touch will mean the difference between life and death.
** This is meant to communicate to the player that they should only use it as a last resort, as doing so will negatively impact their score. [[GuideDangIt Good luck figuring that out without trial and error, though.]]
*** Although the only time that the Healing Touch is actually bad is in ''Under the Knife'', where it slaughters your ranking. Any game from ''Second Opinion'' or later have no penalties to using the Healing Touch.

* The protagonist of ''{{Tsukihime}}'' has the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, which allow him see the concept of death itself on ''everything'' in the form of lines and points. Observing death, however, will lead to insanity, so he has to use special glasses which block his ability. Every time he takes off these glasses his eyes get stronger, but since humans are not meant to observe the nature of death it puts an increasingly enormous strain on him. In fact, in the [[spoiler:epilogue, which takes place a while after any of the routes, it is revealed in his reunion with his 'sensei' that he is literally on the verge of death, in part due to his ability; it is heavily implied that he actually dies just after they part ways.]]

* Death magic in LoisMcMasterBujold's ''Literature/{{Chalion}}'' series causes both the target and the caster to die as their souls are borne off to the Bastard's Hell (when it works at all). Luckily for some so affected, not only is the Bastard's Hell more of AHellOfATime than a FireAndBrimstoneHell, but they don't always stay there, as some of the other gods may take them up. This also means while unsuccessful attempts or research are regarded as attempted murder (at least) and dealt with by temporal authorities as such, ''successful'' attempts are not prosecutable -- not only because there's nobody left to prosecute, but also because if it works, it's considered divine intervention.
