* Inverted in ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'', which posits that Franchise/{{Superman}} has reached enlightenment ''because'' of his powers, not the other way around. It’s implied that anyone with his powers would experience this, as demonstrated when [[spoiler:Lex Luthor]] temporarily gains them and has a HeelRealization:
-->”This is how he sees all the time, every day. Like it’s all just us, in here, ''together''. And we’re all we’ve got...”

** It's later revealed that this program didn't ''exactly'' give him the strength, but rather [[spoiler: his determination in being the strongest was so strong that he manage to over come [[{{Cap}} his natural limiter]], allowing him to go to potentially infinite strength. Thhis form of trasncending human limitations through the mind along with Saitama's rather lax attitude may bring elements of enlightenment.]]

* [[https://www.fimfiction.net/blog/360482/to-rise-above The Five-Step Path]] from the works of [[https://www.fimfiction.net/user/1400/FanOfMostEverything FanOfMostEverything]] straddles the line between this and PowerBornOfMadness. The Path is a magical/psychological technique unique to earth ponies that allows them to [[BreakingTheFourthWall become aware of their status as cartoon characters]], and by embracing that status, [[ExploitingTheFourthWall do as they wish without being hindered by logic or verisimilitude]].

The Dragonborn doesn't have to go through this because he/she isn't an ordinary mortal, but rather the spirit of a dragon inhabiting the body of a mortal.
** And on Several in game lore books refer to the enlightened state of CHIM that allows the user to attain limitless power to manipulate reality. These books don't really make clear what CHIM exactly is, but fans speculate that CHIM is the realization of being a [[MindScrew weirder]] level, CHIM.fictional character in a fictional world, followed by breaking loose from the laws of said world AKA using the MasterConsole to enter cheat codes.

* [[ReligiousRobot Zenyatta]] from ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' is a WarriorMonk originating from a religious sect comprised of fellow [[MechanicalLifeforms Omnics]] who sought spiritual awakening [[TheAtoner following the]] [[RobotWar Omnic Crisis]]. He's able to do some very unusual stuff compared to other heroes -- floating everywhere in a LevitatingLotusPosition, firing "[[EnergyBall orbs]]" that can heal, cause, or amplify damage, and "transcending" [[GoldenSuperMode into a state of tranquility where he becomes invincible and heals everyone around him]] -- which is all implied ([[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane but never concretely stated]]) to be a result of said enlightenment.

The two characters who come into contact with it, and aren't immolated by it, gain access to new powers. Both end up showing telepathy, and one gains [[HealingFactor instant regeneration powers]] and telekinesis.
