* {{Exalted}} has a martial art technique known as Birth of the Perfected Ego Juggernaut. Anyone (ally or enemy) struck by it gains an enormous power boost, allowing them to effortlessly succeed at nearly anything...for about ten minutes. Each minute after the effect activates, the power drops a bit, until by the tenth it's gone entirely. The catch is, at no point does the subject of the attack notice the decline. To themselves, they remain an awe-inspiring, completely unstoppable force of nature. The madness creates elaborate excuses for failures and is permanent (baring healing magic, which does nothing to stop any feeling of depression in someone no longer effortlessly flawless).
* In ''TheDarkEye'', druids have a skill to transform all their life points, endurance points and several attributes into magic ability and cast spells without restriction for an hour. Once started, the process cannot be stopped, and the caster ends as [[DeaderThanDead a pile of ashes]].

* Alexander Anderson from ''{{Hellsing}}'' uses the Nail of Helena on himself and becomes [[spoiler:a plant-thing far more powerful than his normal self]] but using it requires him to stab himself in the heart.
** Likewise, [[spoiler: [[FanNickName Dark Walter]] is vastly superior to his elderly, human self in terms of speed, dexterity and skill (he's able to slice a [[UpToEleven skyscraper in half]] at one point). But his endurance for prolonged combat is quite poor as he quickly develops an IncurableCoughOfDeath very soon after engaging Alucard in battle, due to the fact that his [[BodyHorror body is breaking down because of the Doctor's hasty surgery]].]]

* In ''[[Literature/{{Chalion}} The Curse of Chalion]]'', the god known as The Bastard will occasionally grant a death miracle--the one who prays for someone else's death and the one who wronged him will always die. (The Bastard's death-demon can only enter or leave the world by the hole into heaven made by a death, so two deaths are required each time). A failed attempt is ''not'' fatal, but it is considered a crime of attempted murder--if the god didn't answer, the victim didn't deserve to die.

** Choji's Three Colored Pills each give as successive boost in Chakra, but burn out the user's body. The final, red pill instantly burns all the fat from his body and converts it to energy, but nearly kills him in the process. It would likely be fatal to anyone who's ''not'' as fat as he is. The pill also causes the user's cells to break down, but medicine from the Nara clan can stop the effect. If he eats the last pill, he will definitely die[[spoiler:s]].

** Also, increased strength from adrenaline rushes (like a mother lifting a car off her child) is capable of causing serious damage to the body. The muscles, tendons, and ligaments aren't built to take a beating like that on a regular basis, which is the main reason your body only allows superhuman feats of strength under the most necessary conditions.

* In ''MahouSenseiNegima'', Negi learns a BlackMagic version of this. He gets to equip spells to his body to boost strength and/or speed, depending on what he equips, at the cost of damage to his ''soul''. The arc's BigBad refers to it as "magical doping".
