**[[spoiler:This is possible for every parahuman in the setting due to shards drawing from a pool of energy to fuel the superpower they grant. While it seems the Entities planned out the rough amount of power the shard would need during dispersal its possible for the pool to run out of energy if the power is overused, as Taylor found out when using [[ThinkingUpPortals Doormaker's]] power.]]

* One UltimateMarvel 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, via time travel.

** ''Comicbook/KryptoniteNevermore'''s goal was scaling Superman's off the charts Silver Age power levels way back to much more manageable levels (he lost 2/3 of his power). However, readers didn't take to this revision and DC was forced to backtrack.



* WonderWoman was depowered for a while in the 70s. DC wanted to cash in on {{Action Girl}}s and was aiming for PowerLossMakesYouStrong.

* ''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".]]
