* Every Servant in the ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' universe has a Noble Phantasm, a weapon or ability that is a large part of their legend as Heroic Spirits. Not a few Masters are also skilled in some form of magic which primarily gets used when fighting other Masters.

While there are some irregular Servants who don't have proper Noble Phantasms, ''Fate'' games which use Noble Phantasms as a LimitBreak treat the strongest attack they already have as being their Noble Phantasm for gameplay's sake.

** Almost every single character also has a magical ability no one else has. This can vary from the simple "manipulation of fire" to the abstract "manipulation of boundaries" to the absurd "power to sense the coming of spring."

Unusually, part of this is explained as a cultural thing, with it being [[UniquenessValue trendy for people to come up with a "signature ability" with which to advertise themselves]]. In some cases this leads to characters having "abilities" which are [[MetaphoricallyTrue metaphorical]], [[MundaneMadeAwesome more mundane than they sound]], a [[ThemeDeck limited application of a much broader power]], or [[BlatantLies just plain made up]].

This trope shows up quite a lot in {{Shonen}} FightingSeries, Comic Books, and Video Games where pretty much every fighting character who is not a mook has at least one. Whether or not said special move has any effectiveness is completely dependent upon the needs of the story and the character's general role in it. A comic relief joke character, for example, may have a completely useless special move, or it can be subverted by making [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass it seem that way until he gets serious]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', every Gem has a power or weapon specific to them. [[spoiler:Or rather, they ''used to''. Many younger Gems either don't have powers or don't know how to use them, thanks to the fact that Homeworld is running out of resources (causing more and more Gems to be born "defective"). Peridot doesn't even know that she has magnetic powers until she uses them by total accident.]]

* Every character in the ''OVA'' RPG has at least one Attack that they can use, and unlike other Tabletop Games, you do not have to pay for each attack you come up with for your character.
