** Donquixote Rocinante has the Calm-Calm Fruit, which allows him to do things silently or create spherical regions around him where no sound can get in or out. Although he uses it for its direct purposes of telling things to people without letting anyone else know and to get undisturbed sleep, he shows what the power of silence can ''really'' do when he storms Diez Barrels's hideout: He effortlessly enters, shoots out the lights, grabs what he wants, and leaves causing a lot of destruction and injured bodies around him that nobody notices until it's too late. He also uses this ability to securely sneak Trafalgar Law out of the area and into the Navy's custody, where he'll be safe.

Because gunshots silent inside his sphere of influence, as are the screams of the people he shoots. It's the perfect power for an assassin.

* ''VideoGame/SidMeiersAlphaCentauri'': The Peacekeepers get extra happy people, extra space for people and doubled council votes. Minor bonuses until one realizes that happy people lead to golden ages and population booms. Coupled with doubled votes, this is instant diplomatic victory.

* [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor's]] companions are an interesting variation of this. When compared to the Doctor himself--a 900-plus year old Time Lord with a time machine, encyclopedic memory, sonic screwdriver that can pretty much get out of any situation--their "mere" human abilities seem lame in comparison. But in recent seasons, the companions and their various training have saved the Doctor's bacon on countless occasions:

* ''Film/SkyHigh'': {{Sidekick}}s were often underestimated in their usefulness. The viewer is initially led to believe Ethan's ability to turn into a puddle is useless. Near the end of the film, however, it turns out to be absolutely perfect for ''setting up a sneak attack''. Lash never saw Ethan coming. Also note that, right before he takes down Lash, Ethan demonstrates the ability to flow ''vertically'', something he'd never done before then.

* In ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/251660/tales-from-the-dark-side-of-the-mirror Tales From The Dark Side of the Mirror]]'', this seems to be [[MirrorUniverse Mirror Starlight's]] mentality with Cutie Marks (in contrast to her prime self's KnightTemplar level hatred of Cutie Marks). When a pony accuses another of having a 'loser' Cutie Mark, [[BerserkButton she takes it rather personally]], and takes time to instruct another that viewing his cooking Cutie Mark as unmanly is stupid and it's perfectly possibly to be both. Given she's stated to be a teacher and a tutor, this makes sense.

* This is a grand tradition for the ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}. Most characters have only one power, and it's not always something very impressive.

But in recent seasons, the companions and their various training have saved the Doctor's bacon on countless occasions:
** Martha Jones, a medical student, provides invaluable services when dealing with humans and aliens alike; she's eventually recruited by UNIT as a master of alien biology, and even saved the Doctor at least once by memorizing his body structure and working to heal him.
** Similarly, Rory Williams, a hospital nurse, once saved his own life by teaching his fiancee Amy how to perform CPR (or at least [[CPRCleanPrettyReliable the television version of it]].
** Sarah Jane Smith is an investigative reporter by trade, which gives her skills in sneaking around and researching alien threats covertly. She's one of the main reasons that Earth is still around in the series.
** Donna Noble doesn't even have a permanent job--she's a "temp," or employee hired on a daily basis to fill in for absent workers--but her knowledge of office life is incredibly useful. In "The Sontaran Stratagem," she explores a facility and discovers a crucial fact about the employees--namely, that there's never been a sick day in the history of the office--which proves that cloning is involved. In "Journey's End," her abilities as a typist actually end up ''saving reality itself'' [[spoiler: although admittedly, she'd gained the same mental capacity as the Doctor in that particular case]].

* And In ''VideoGame/Mother3'', PK Love is the name of Lucas's special move, due to his great compassion. It's what allows him to pull the Needles. That being said, sometimes Heart isn't so awesome, [[spoiler:when the villain turns your twin brother into a soulless syborg because he has that power too]]
