** Hisoka with his Bungee Gum. His ability lets him make his nen stretchy and sticky like gum, and apply any kind of texture to it. He also happens to be one of the strongest and most dangerous fighters in the series, especially since his ability opens up all kinds of opportunities for misdirection (fitting his MonsterClown magician persona.)

He also happens to be one of thin surfaces. Those are his only Nen abilities. As lame as they sound, the strongest and most dangerous fighters way he uses them makes them overkill. He even named them in the series, especially a rather cheesy manner, as they come from a chewing gum brand from when he was young. Especially since his ability opens up all kinds of opportunities for misdirection (fitting his MonsterClown magician persona.)

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has a notable example in normally C-List X-Man Sean Cassidy a.k.a. Banshee, whose power is normally limited to [[MakeMeWannaShout screaming]] and somehow flying off that. Here, about [[BadassGrandpa forty years of practice]] mean that he's explored the full possibilities of his powers, including SuperHearing sufficient to create a sonar that Daredevil would envy, being able to extend a field of absolute silence around himself, allowing him to move in absolute silence, shoot completely silently and even nullify the sound of ''an exploding claymore mine'', and being able to hit the resonant frequency of just about anything. This means that he can destroy almost anything. Such as wands. [[NightmareFuel Or bone.]] Or, apparently, granite, which he once liquefied. And then there's his CompellingVoice, with which he has apparently done things which give Nick Fury nightmares. Add to this the experience of having served as in Intelligence Officer in Vietnam, then as a detective for Interpol, and you get a [[BewareTheNiceOnes very scary individual.]]

** In Literature/TheAlloyOfLaw Marasi is a Cadmium Misting, a person who can burn Cadmium to create a bubble of slowed time; time moves slower within the bubble than outside it. Initially this power is considered rather useless, as there aren't many times that someone needs to move slower than the rest of the world (though one character points out that, since she's interested in law enforcement, she could use it to speed up stakeouts). However [[spoiler: during the final battle with Miles, she uses this ability once all of Miles's mooks are gone and he's distracted. Since Miles doesn't notice the bubble has gone up, this allows plenty of time for Wayne to get the police and come back to Miles's hideout, where they capture him.]]

* In both ''Tabletopgame/{{Shadowrun}}'' and ''Tabletopgame/{{Cyberpunk}}'', one of the weapons characters can have access to is basically high-tech squirt guns. Yes, squirt guns. Think this is super lame? Well, fill them with high-potency acid or lethal skin-absorbed poison and shoot it at someone's face, see how lame that is. [[TheSpoonyExperiment Noah "Spoony" Antwiler]] [[http://spoonyexperiment.com/counter-monkey/shadowrun-the-squirt-gun-wars/ made a whole video on them]].

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': Elan's best ability is being GenreSavvy and TheDitz - and he combines both skills and ''weaponizes'' them against his brother Nale.

** And in ''Literature/MagnusChaseAndTheGodsOfAsgard'', by the same author, the one god that can stop the monsters is not Thor or Odin or any of the war gods. It's Frey, god of summer and life and balance.

* [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Molly Carpenter]] lives in a setting where most problems are solved with super strength, giant fireballs, or hordes of undead servants. Her forte? Illusions. At first, it's mostly good for hiding from a fight. As time goes on she learns to dazzle and disorient enemies with a "one woman rave" of light and sound, and eventually to create convincing duplicates of herself to draw enemy fire wherever she wants it. Now that the 14th book has had her [[spoiler: forced into the position of a lesser queen of the fae, who are physically incapable of lying, she could wreak havoc with the entire supernatural power structure by speaking only through lying illusions of herself.]]

* The Chromativariation mutation in ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'' allows the user to change an object's color. Sounds pretty useless at first, but since clearance levels are color-coded, a user of that mutation can easily and convincingly accuse someone of treason by simply turning some of their possessions violet.

** A [[LethalHarmlessPowers villainous example]] would be Nice Guy, who has the power to not be seen as a threat. People can still see and talk with him, but when his power is "on", they perceive him as [[TheNondescript just another face in the crowd.]] Even when committing murder in broad daylight.
