We've all heard of the [[SuperPowerLottery standard superhero power deal]], of people with phenomenal cosmic powers,[[note]][[Disney/{{Aladdin}} itty bitty living space not mandatory]],[[/note]] and of people whose powers make people point and laugh, since WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway. Sometimes, though, people like to mix things up and give someone with reasonable, or even cool, powers an additional lame, strange, or useless one.

* The Sleeper from ''WildCards'' gained a new form and powers every time he woke up. However, one power stayed with him: He could generate sad piano background music by saying [[BeamMeUpScotty 'Play it again, Sam']].

* Aquerna, at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the ''WhateleyUniverse''. Strength, quickness, leaping ability, and.. she can talk to squirrels (although some of the time this one is her ''best'' power).

* Mokona from ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' can take people through different dimensions and works as a UniversalTranslator. Another of her "secret techniques" is imitating voices. This is not a useless technique; you never know when you are going to need doing a BavarianFireDrill. He also has [[OneHundredAndEight That would be 107 more Secret Talents]].

* Mew Ichigo of ''TokyoMewMew'' has typical MagicalGirl leader powers that make her a particularly useful fighter, as well as the ability to jump high, always land on her feet, and... transform into a cute helpless kitten. [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting Unexpectedly]]. This was played up in ''Tokyo Mew Mew - a la mode'' to the point where she literally had to turn into a cat after three minutes of fighting in order to let Berii take her spotlight and place as leader.

* 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").
