* ''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.

* 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 [[SuperDrowningPower weakness]] of a Devil Fruit User.

* Virgo Shaka of ''SaintSeiya'' lives In a setting full of {{Charles Atlas Superpower}}s but thanks to his Enlightenment Superpowers is one of the most feared, dangerous adversaries imaginable. He can create deadly illusions that will MindRape enemies from ''miles'' away, send them to {{Hell}} (or {{Heaven}}!), destroy their senses rendering them [[ConvenientComa comatose]], and even [[ThanatosGambit be more dangerous dead than alive]]. It helps that he's the reincarnation of a Buddha.
* All the shamans in ''ShamanKing'' have this to some degree. Hao, the most enlightened and powerful of all, decided that to [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans create utopia]] all the ignorant humans have to die, leaving only shamans to populate the world.

* Sarin the shapeshifting wizard of ''Webcomic/TheDragonDoctors'' explicitly says she has these in Chapter 21 when captured by a demon who orders her to work for it, hence why she never throws a fireball or uses other offensive magic. Mind, this doesn't mean she's a ''pacifist'' and can seriously injure or even theoretically kill someone (being an experienced knife-fighter from when she was a kid), but she's vowed to only do so with her own two hands.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[VideoGame/NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' has the Transcended character classes. While characters who Ascend to become angels or Descend to become demons get their power as a gift from their respective Elder Powers, Transcended earn their power through study and meditation. It also means they cannot lose access to their powers like an angel who does too much evil or a demon who does too much good. Nexus Champions and Conduits take the enlightenment theme furthest, developing their powers from a deep understanding of the EternalRecurrence nature of reality.
