* 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.]]

* ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'': As part of their DramaPreservingHandicap, the three "Mistika" Makuta -- Krika, Gorast and Bitil -- suffered ShapeshifterModeLock and lost several of their near-fifty original powers due to MutagenicGoo. In truth, their EvilPlan required them to keep from using their powers to kill the heroes anyway, but the writers didn't want the fans to learn this too soon.

Added DiffLines:

* Season 1 of ''Anime/{{K}}'' establishes that a King can beat any non-King in combat, and ''both'' the Red and Blue Kings are after the main characters. In season 2, [[spoiler: the aforementioned main character has been revealed as the most powerful King of all, and he makes an alliance with the Red and Blue Kings to defeat the Green King. They are just barely enough to top the Green King, and it would be difficult to justify an antagonist more powerful than him, so the series has the alliance defeat the Green King by destroying the Slates that give them their powers.]]

* A SadisticChoice in ''Literature/TheBelgariad'' threatens this: before resurrecting a dead {{Muggle|s}} love interest, the Gods ask whether [[spoiler:Polgara the Sorceress]] would accept a life together with no more power than they. [[spoiler:She accepts, only to find out later that rather than de-power her, they {{empowered|BadassNormal}} him.]]

* Mantorok, an EldritchAbomination from ''EternalDarkness'', is sealed within his own temple by Pious Augustus. This prevents him from being able to fuel any SummonMagic the player character tries to cast using his rune (meaning no Mantorok Trappers, Zombies or Horrors). For extra irony, Pious used a spell fueled with Mantorok's own supreme element to seal it.

* In LunarEternalBlue, the main heroine, Lucia, begins as a literal demigod, with enough power to cripple final-dungeon-level enemies that she freely uses to annihilate any enemy you face... until partway out of the first dungeon, when EvilGod Zophar strips her of her power and leaves her a weak, helpless mortal. She can regain much of her power with experience, but for a time she's no better than the rest of the cast.
