* In ''VideoGame/Persona3'', during the final confrontation, the Main Character draws power from all the [[ThePowerOfFriendship people he's helped throughout the game]], giving him the power of the Universe Arcana. Then the other team members give their encouragement, powering up a final attack that saves the day. [[spoiler:And [[HeroicSacrifice takes his life.]]]]
** The protagonist of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' does the same against the final boss of the True Ending. [[spoiler:He is granted Izanagi-no-Ookami, the ascended form of his default persona, which he then uses to pretty much [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu punch the everliving hell out of Izanami]], who was [[TheManBehindTheMan behind everything about The Midnight Channel, Ameno-Sagiri, and the fog that tormented the residents of Inaba, as well as being the one who gave the protagonist, Adachi, and Namatame their powers in the first place]].]] In a NewGamePlus, you can actually fuse [[spoiler:Izanagi-no-Okami]] as a normal Persona. He's about as powerful as you'd expect.
** The protagonist of ''VideoGame/Persona5'' also pulls this in the very last boss battle. [[spoiler:He summons Satanael, his Ultimate Persona]], and ''shoots the final boss in the head'' with a MASSIVE rifle. And like 4, you can summon it on a replay though not until late in game because it has a very high level. Unlike 4 however, it DOES get registered in the Persona compendium, meaning that on a 3rd playthrough, you can get it right off the bat, and pretty much effortlessly stomp your way through the game.

* The first two ''ValkyrieProfile'' games do this. In the first's [[MultipleEndings best ending]], Lenneth is the only one who can do any significant damage to the FinalBoss because she creates the sword Glance Reviver before the fight. This also gives her access to the full version of her LimitBreak. In ''[[VideoGame/ValkyrieProfile2Silmeria Silmeria]]'', this happens when [[spoiler:all three Valkyries and Alicia merge into one being, The Valkyrie, essentially a full-blown goddess]], and again, only she can do any significant damage to the final boss, though there is apparently a hidden scene only shown if you slog through the battle without her.

* At the end of Chelsea's part in ''BunnyMustDie'', Chelsea fights [[HopelessBossFight Dechronos's second form]]. The player then starts playing as Bunny wearing a new gold bunny suit, which makes her automatically parry any attack and gives an ability to [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks throw]] [[{{BFS}} big fragging swords]].

* In the middle of the third season of ''TransformersAnimated'', Prowl picks up the ability to use "processor over matter", which is basically telekinesis. [[spoiler:In the finale, Prowl and Jazz use this to pull together scattered pieces of the Allspark and convert them to use against the Lugnut Supremes -- and when that's not powerful enough, Prowl uses it to pull out his own spark.]]

* In the final mission of ''VideoGame/PokemonRanger: Shadows of Almia'', you are given the Vatonage Styler, which allows you to befriend any Pokémon, even if it has been hypnotized by Gigaremo Units. This is an Eleventh Hour Superpower because there are no Gigaremo Units in the game after this mission is completed. Also, you cannot even damage the final boss [[spoiler:([[OlympusMons Darkrai]], implied to be the King of Almia reincarnated)]] until said Vatonage Styler is further upgraded by fusing with the Tears of the Princes. There is no use for this gem power outside of the final boss fight, so enjoy the pretty animation while you can.
** In ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', your legendary dragon is this in the main storyline, as it can only be caught right before fighting [[spoiler:N and Ghetsis]]. Given the high evolution levels of Unova Pokemon, it will almost certainly be the strongest Pokemon you have encountered up to this point. Of course, you can choose to [[DefiedTrope defy]] this by ''not'' putting the dragon in your party (though you still have to catch it to proceed).

* In ''WebComic/SailorMoonCosmosArc'', after [[spoiler: Usagi's ascension into godhood/Sailor Cosmos]] the other Senshi power up into their Cosmic Sailor Senshi forms. This also had the effect of breaking Servant Chaos's possession of Hotaru, [[spoiler: reviving the Asteroid Senshi, and allowing this timeline's Chibiusa to ''finally'' transform.]]
