* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'': After Time Spiral, all Planeswalkers suffered this; most notably [[MagnificentBastard Nicol Bolas]], who went from a PhysicalGod to your average, run of the mill [[{{Badass}} Dragon Mage]] with a thousand [[GambitIndex gambits]].

** In the pre-ComicBook/{{Crisis|on Infinite Earths}} era, Kryptonians could permanently lose their powers through exposure to Gold Kryptonite. ComicBook/PostCrisis Superman once had to use this to defeat a group of pre-Crisis Kryptonians (as they were far more powerful); fortunately, Kryptonite only works on Kryptonians from the same universe.
*** This was also used in ''ComicBook/SupermanAndBatmanGenerations'' a storyline based on [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] Superman and Batman. Superman's first child, [[MythologyGag Joel,]] was exposed to Gold Kryptonite in the womb. His sister wasn't, but she wore a red sun pendant in early childhood until she was ready for her powers. This eventually led to a bitter adult Joel being manipulated by Lex Luthor into using temporary powers to [[CainAndAbel kill his sister.]]

* In ''Webcomic/Harbourmaster'', [[spoiler: any Yogzarthu who takes a bite out of Seisha Dree--such as Mormo--will find themselves adopting her HealingFactor in the worst way possible for them. Namely, they get locked into being a clone of her, with no way to shapeshift out--the Healing Factor interprets not-Seisha DNA as "damaged" and in need of "repair".]]

However, once all but one of the demons on Earth were trapped in the Pit, he had fulfilled his duty as champion and accordingly lost his powers.

* One Marvel comic has the Skrulls arrive benevolently and give every human on Earth superpowers with a pill (only Ben Grimm refuses). Then they cause a massive simultaneous DePower so they can invade unimpeded... except Ben Grimm is still a BadassNormal and thwarts the invasion all by himself.

* In ''Film/HaloNightfall'', Colonel Randall Aiken of the Sedran Colonial Guard is actually Randall-037, a Spartan-II (the same series as [[PlayerCharacter Master Chief Petty Officer John-117]]) who was missing in action and presumed dead for years. Once contact was reestablished, he struck a deal with ONI to have many of his Spartan augmentations removed in agreement that they would no longer pressure him to rejoin with the UNSC. Thus while he has the experience of a Spartan and the natural physical strength that came with being a SPARTAN-II candidate ([[spoiler:he lifts a HAVOK nuke onto his shoulder and carries it for several kilometers unaided]]), he is no longer a SuperSoldier.

** Ichigo went through a de-power at the end of the Arrancar Arc after fighting Aizen. The Lost Agent Arc was about the process of him finding a way to gain power to replace the power he's lost [[spoiler: and during which time he became a BadassInDistress, requiring the shinigami to step in at the very last minute to save him by restoring his shinigami powers. It was further confirmed his power to date had been controlled and surpressed by his Quincy heritage so it takes the final arc before he's allowed to begin developing his power properly.]]
