* 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.

* 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.
