* In ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'', Kieri the water angel can fly, shoot icebolts, and has [[CursedWithAwesome a curse]] that let her turn into a cute bunny.
** Being said cute bunny restricts Kieri's ability to fight and it weakens her magic. However, it crosses into CursedWithAwesome when Kieri becomes unhittable due to small size and increased rabbity agility. After all, Toski did refer to it as a gift!

* Lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'', where the villains split the 12 talismans between the four of them, letting them rob banks with super strength, laser eyes, and the ability to turn cops into chickens, among other things. Finn, however, gets the powers of astral projection, motion-to-the-motionless and balance (spiritual, sadly). Luckily, he complains enough so that comparatively-{{Badass Normal}} Hak Fu trades with him... and then he makes a ''second'' trade with Ratso when this gives him flight and ''two'' healing powers (which later turns out to not actually be redundant).

* Franchise/{{Superman}} used to have the power of Super-Ventriloquism, which he used surprisingly frequently (because being able to ''literally'' throw your voice gives you a way to communicate in the vacuum of space). Also whenever Superman -or other Kryptonian- used to use his powers to do something more efficiently writers would call it Super-<Insert Thing Here>, so "weaving at Superspeed" became [[http://images.paxholley.net/blog/superman/supes_weaving1.jpg "Super-Weaving"]]. The worst case of which is a simple multiplication, which Supes calls [[http://images.paxholley.net/blog/superman/supes_math1.jpg "Super-Mathematics"]] ''while he gets the answer wrong''. His "Super-Breath" is used only sporadically (volcano eruption, "Fire Wall of Doom").

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} was created in the late Silver Age and she was so overpowered like her cousin, but she was not liable to come up with new weird powers every issue. Still she used "Super Ventiloquism", in ''Comicbook/ActionComics #258'' she used "Super Aiming" and in ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl 1972}} Supergirl Vol 1]]'' issue #1 she uses [[VacuumMouth Super-Suction Breath]] to capture a serial killer (she draws out the air out of a cab so the man in there faints). Supergirl once complained (to herself) how "lame" "Super Breath" power was.

* {{Spider-Man}} got one of these in "The Other" powerup mini-arc before Civil War. He gained such powers as seeing in the dark, tracing vibrations through his weblines, poison stingers in his arms... and the ability to identify the species of any spider on sight. At least he didn't end up shooting webs out of his behind.

*** Considering most of Athas (the world of ''Dark Sun'') is essentially an arid desert wasteland full of dangerous monsters that getting lost in is usually a death sentence that power would be very useful.

* ComicBook/{{Rogue}} herself, when still possessing MsMarvel's powers, had a latent [[SpiderSense seventh sense]] that allowed her to detect danger. She used it perhaps twice in the comic books. MsMarvel herself rarely used the power, either.

* Nightcrawler of the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' can teleport (taking other people along - [[PortalCut or just pieces of them]] - if he wants), climb walls and ceilings, turn invisible in shadows, and has superhuman agility and a prehensile tail he can use to fence with three swords at once. He also has the ability to know whether or not he's in his home dimension. He can count the number of times he's used this power for anything other than instinctively ending up in the right dimension when he teleports on the fingers of one hand. And Nightcrawler only has three fingers per hand.
