* ''Franchise/{{Mistborn}}'':
** One of the biggest limitations of the Metallic Arts was that one had to be born with the power to access them, and the potential is inherited. Most of the lucky gifted are then only given access to one Art with one metal, and further feruchemical metalminds can only be drawn on by the person who stored power in them. The only exception to this was killing and stealing another's power via hemalurgy. In ''Literature/BandsOfMourning'' (third book of the ''Literature/WaxAndWayne'' sub-series), research into nicrosil, long included in the metal charts but never explained, allows for the creation of open metalminds, usable by any random person who picks one up. Nicrosil also allows the storage of allomancy powers, breaking open those magics for anyone to use as well. A source of the original magic is needed, and there seems to be new limits with combining magics, but this one metal can potentially change everything in the Elendel Basin. The southerners and their Magitek are a taste of things to come.
** For example, Feruchemical gold lets you store health, tapping it later to heal faster. The big limit is that if you store health while you're already sick and try and tap it to heal faster, you get no net gain. But if you can use health someone else has stored, then healthy people can store it and give it to sick people, sort of like donating blood.

So henceforth, he and Professor Calculus (who helped buy the deed on auction) live a life of luxury in Marlinspike, with most stories beginning or at least taking place partially there.

* The main conceit at the start of ''LightNovel/HeavyObject'' is the only thing that can counter a HumongousMecha is another mecha. The first arc then features a pair of soldiers and their mecha pilot destroying an enemy Object with an IndyPloy that triggers its self-destruct. From there the plot has them made an official team, at which point they ''continue'' doing that kind of thing.

-->"[[spoiler: Takano]] and Hanyuu, were you listening to what Mion said? We don't play Old Maid. Just Old Geezer. [[spoiler: Takano]] laughed it off as being the same but it is a completely different game. After all, if one adds the missing card that is taken out in a game of Old Geezer, it becomes a game without losers. After adding Hanyuu, our missing card the world became a world free of losers. It is the height of folly to purposely take one card out of the game. This world doesn't need a loser."
