** That one person(s). You know the one(s). They become this after getting a power-up in Season Eight, although it's PoweredByAForsakenChild: the power originates from ritually slain slayers.
** Not really, Willow got it wrong, Buffy was powered by Twilight itself.

* {{Franchise/Superman}} is the TropeCodifier here, along with the rest of the Kryptonian race under a [[ThePowerOfTheSun yellow sun]]. Varied for taste, though: Superman, ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}, and ComicBook/PowerGirl also get supersenses, heat vision, and super breath (including freezing breath). Superboy's powers were actually rooted in "tactile telekinesis", and it was shown that eventually, he'd develop the ability to use full-on telekinetic powers. Twist: Everyone knows 'em, but hey, why not?

** Silver Age Superman is even worse. Not only can he move planets with ease, fly to other ''universes'' with ease, go back in time, and throw his voice, he also has super hypnotism, a mind-wiping kiss, and essentially NewPowersAsThePlotDemands.
*** In ''Film/SupermanIVTheQuestForPeace'' he also has Rebuild-the-Great-Wall-of-China-Vision!
*** Then there is his greatest power - the ability to create a [[WebVideo/BennettTheSage miniature version of himself, out of a rainbow from his hand]]! (This does have a minor drawback: the clone only lasts a short period of time and Superman loses his other powers for the duration.)

* Superman's cousin ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' has the full Kryptonian pack: super-strength, super-speed, flight, invulnerability, super-senses, heat vision, several breath weapons... and some versions are an ActionBomb. In ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'', Kara gets a [[Franchise/GreenLantern Red Lantern ring]] temporarily. She gains the ability to vomit burning plasma, and her ring gives her an extra set of powers: creation of light constructs, force-fields, space warping...
