** A villainous example occurs in Part 4, when the final arc, [[Music/{{Queen}} "Another One Bites The Dust"]] is kicked off when [[spoiler:the Stand-granting Arrow pierces the BigBad, Kira Yoshikage, granting him a second Stand ability, Killer Queen Bites The Dust. This ability transforms a person of his choice into [[ActionBomb a living bomb.]] If this person tells anyone about Kira's true identity, or if he's even questioned about the matter, Bites The Dust will immediately blow up everyone present who learned the identity. [[GroundhogDayLoop It then rewinds time by an hour.]] In this new timeline, the target will inevitably explode again, even if he doesn't talk to the target again. It is described as an absolutely foolproof way for Kira to protect his identity, since it makes inquiring Bites the Dust's host about it impossible, and since it then resets to a timeline where the inquiry didn't even happen, the host can't be traced to Kira either.]]

** Ragnell in ''''Videogame/FireEmblem 9: Path of Radiance''. It's only usable for two-and-a-half chapters (out of more than thirty) in the entire game, but it's by far the best usable sword, being one of only two UnbreakableWeapons in the entire game, with good attack power and a ranged attack to boot. It allows the main character -- who's arguably the best playable character in the game even with normal weapons -- to rip through enemy hordes damn near single-handedly, and is the only equippable weapon that can damage the final boss. Ragnell goes to plot-defying lengths to conform to this trope. Ike presumably gets Ragnell much earlier in the storyline, but it doesn't appear in-game until the 3rd-to-last chapter. Even then, the sword waits until the end of that chapter to magically appear in Ike's inventory, at which point it becomes vital to use.
*** Ragnell [[AvertedTrope averts this trope]] in VideoGame/SuperSmashBros. Brawl. When Ike uses it there, it's no more or less powerful than any other sword.

* In ''Franchise/TheChroniclesOfRiddick: VideoGame/EscapeFromButcherBay'', after spending the entire game using stealth and the occasional small-arms shootout to make your way through the prison, the final level grants you access to a [[HumongousMecha Giant, heavily armored walking tank]].

You were given an immense purple fury which threw ''heads shaped like Spyro'' at your opponent until she fell down. Granted, it was pretty cool, and you weren't Immortal while using it.

** In the second movie, when Tenchi is trapped in the dark world and unable to access his light-based powers. Ayeka uses a branch from her brother's tree-ship to project herself (and a source of light) into the dark world, granting Tenchi the ability to use his standard light-powered sword-based {{badass}}ery. This functions as a double case as both Ayeka used a never-before seen power, and catapulted Tenchi to new levels of power.

** 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 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.

Sadly, it does have a vicious twist. The NoHoldsBarredBeatdown delivered by the boss kills the [[TheHeroDies pilot]], and when she is dead the ship's AI (aka ZODIAC Ophiuchus) kicks in and activates the ship's full power. Also, the ship's armor is gone, meaning that one bullet that slips past your shields or one missile -- missiles [[ArmorPiercingAttack ignore shields]] -- is all it takes to get a GameOver.
