* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', when in the TV World, the characters are confronted by their shadow selves. These are the manifestations of all their unwanted, hidden emotions. When rejected, the shadows will go OneWingedAngel and try to kill them. Only by facing themselves and accepting their flaws will their shadow transform into a Persona. Working to overcome their flaws and improve themselves allows the Persona to evolve into a more powerful form.

A darker example would be [[spoiler:Adachi]], who gains his Persona by embracing his depravity.

* Subverted in ''Manga/OnePiece'', where according to WordOfGod a [[ShapedLikeItself human who eats the Human-Human Fruit]] (the fruit that turned Chopper into a human/reindeer hybrid) would achieve enlightenment but physically would gain nothing but the [[SuperDrowningSkills weakness]] of a Devil Fruit User.

* Although it is clear that genetics plays a deciding factor in developing PsychicPowers in ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' it also seems that without a good deal of spiritual introspection they won't develop very far. One Martian faith, the Society of Eternal Bliss, even places psychics at the top of the reincarnation ladder and treats them as gods simply to give them the time to meditate and develop their abilities.

* In ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'', many of Sun Wukong's powers, including the shapeshifting, the ability to summon duplicates of himself, and the ability to leap large distances in a single bound, were gained as side-effects of studying the secrets of the universe under the Buddhist sage Subhuti. Subhuti eventually asked him to leave when he realized he was more interested in the superpowers than the enlightenment.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'': The basic idea of charms is that its user know well enough on how to manipulate the Essence of the world. Exaltation speeds up this progress and helps you not dying in the training, but anyone can theoretically achieve Enlightened Essence if they have the conviction.
