** Cracker, in his first confrontation with Luffy shows him [[MultiArmedAndDangerous his power to make extra arms]]. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope This turned out to be a lie]], when Luffy breaks his body in half, revealing real Cracker inside. [[DoubleSubvertedTrope And then he proceeds to explain]], that he has the power [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower to create and control biscuits]], and [[ActuallyADoombot his armor are made of them and desighned to look like real human]], down to using jam to imitate BloodFromTheMouth. Naturally this comes back to bite him, when Nami realizes, that water can make biscuits softer.]]

** {{DoubleSubverted|Trope}} in Kenzo's case. While Kenzo gives detailed explanation on how he [[PressurePoint makes people drown in their own bodily fluids]], he keeps his stand powers in secret. So instead ''his stand'' tells to his enemies exactly how his powers work, gives them advice on how to beat him and even warns them about incoming attacks, much to his user annoyance. So in this case, abilities explain ourselves.

[[folder:Literature]]
* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'':
** Armsmaster, a major superhero, has a habit of telling his opponents about the [[CombatClairvoyance combat style simulator]] in his helmet as a component of his TrashTalk.
** Tattletale, on the other hand, ''lies'' about how her abilities work, telling people she's a psychic. This can greatly intimidate and confuse people because the only ''real'' psychic in the setting is a nigh-invulnerable monster responsible for millions of deaths.

* A variation occurs in ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'': Viridi doesn't explain her own power, but that of one of her mooks:
-->'''Viridi''': That's a Jitterthug. Melee attacks won't hurt him at all when he's red. And when he's green, shooting him won't work! What are you gonna do ''now''?\\
'''Pit''': Uh... I guess I'll just melee him when he's green and shoot him when he's red.\\
'''Viridi''': [[OhCrap But... Oh, darn it!]]\\
'''Palutena''': [[LampshadeHanging Thanks for the advice!]]
