* 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).

Added DiffLines:

* 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.]]

* While this isn't really a solely end-game instance, it IS very late in the game and only available to one class. In ''QuestForGloryIV'', as a Wizard, you get Erana's Staff (Erana, for those unfamiliar, was an extremely, EXTREMELY powerful magic user who, with her magic, managed to enchant no fewer than six different places as "Peaceful" areas, where no violence of any form can work. In [[QuestForGloryIII QFG3]], you see a cheetah lounging near an antelope in one of these spots. Even after she died, her staff alone managed to generate spontaneous flora and the same peaceful-type area. Also, it was able to force lesser undead to stay away, and make greater undead REALLY uncomfortable near it.) After getting the staff, you can return to one of her enchanted places and face down the Faerie Queen. Doing this gives you access to the Resistance spell, which drastically reduces ALL magic damage done to you, and really costs nothing because of the staff itself being a veritable fountain of magic. So, this is actually TWO examples, the Staff and Resistance, which turns a Wizard into an engine of death (moreso than previously, at least.)

* In ''{{Persona 3}}'', 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.]]]]

* In ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', during Dr. Eggman's final mission, Cosmic Wall, you are already quite possibly the strongest, most broken character in the game due to other Hour Superpowers. You have the energy bombs that can bust through steel like paper while locking on to enemies (Large Cannon and Laser Blaster), health unmatched by tanks independent of the usual rings, but during this mission, you gain his final upgrade, which increases his health further (Protective Armor). Also, for this stage alone, his hovering abilities (Jet Engine) let him glide upwards for about 5 seconds, due to lower gravity. Which, combined with the above and the stage's incredible length, makes this the only stage in the game where one can get 100,000+ points in their score.
** This isn't even getting into the final battle, where Sonic and Shadow simultaneously activate their Super forms. Unfortunately, this winds up being a DeadlyUpgrade for Shadow, who would have died if not for Dr. Eggman's intervention.
