* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', Panacea has the power of complete control over the biology of anything she touches. She uses this to simulate HealingHands, and she can cure virtually any ailment or sickness. From the moment her powers triggered as a child, she spent all her free time visiting hospitals, because [[SamaritanSyndrome she couldn't live with herself if she didn't.]] As time went by, however, she got sick of seeing illness and sick people around her all the time, to the point that she was almost on the edge of a complete breakdown, so when [[spoiler:Tattletale]], [[spoiler:Bonesaw]], and [[spoiler:Jack Slash]] administered successive {{Breaking Speech}}es to her, she had a nervous breakdown and [[spoiler:accidentally turned her sister into pure BodyHorror]].

* Franchise/{{Batman}} has a tendency to go through this anytime he (temporarily) gains super powers. ''Engineering'' this was Bane's goal in ComicBook/{{Knightfall}}, [[{{GenreSavvy}} and it worked]]. Notable in that Batman never mentally tires of the job; in his case, it's ''always'' physical exhaustion.

* ''Film/{{Daredevil}}'': We see the hero going through his before-bed routine, getting everything put away in just the right place, climbing into the sound-proof casket (necessary due to his [[SuperSenses super hearing]]), only for him to hear a woman somewhere nearby crying for help. He only lets out an exhausted sigh before slowly closing the casket to close out the sound.

* As with the comics, this is a recurring theme in the ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy'' films. Its most pronounced in the second movie where the stress of his chosen life causes his powers to start failing. By the beginning of the third film, he seems to have found some balance and Mary Jane being in his life helps.
* ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' uses this trope as well, [[RuleOfThree being about Spider-Man and all]]. [[spoiler:Gwen Stacy's death and being forced to fight a good friend of his drove Peter to despair, and he stopped being Spidey for ''five months''.]]

->''So many long hours spent around sick people, and I got numb to it, I stopped caring. Do you know how many hours Iíve spent awake at night, wishing my powers would just go away, or that some circumstance would come up where Iíd make some excusable mistake where they would eventually forgive me, but where I couldnít visit the hospitals anymore?''

* Alaric Morgan is particularly prone to this in regards his Literature/{{Deryni}} powers. He is apt to use use his powers literally to the point of falling over at times, unless he he is prevented from doing so. Kelson scolds him for it in ''The King's Justice'', and Azim forbids him from helping with [[spoiler:Derry]] after he and Dhugal have just spent themselves Healing [[spoiler: Mátyás]] in ''King Kelson's Bride''.

* Heavily implied to be happening to [[spoiler: ''the player character'']] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' during the Dark Knight job quests. They are so tired of always being the hero and they want to get away form it all so that they can do what they want to do rather than being everyone's knight in shining armor that also does menial tasks for people without a word of thanks in return. [[spoiler: It turns out that while the player character does harbor such feelings, it is only their inner darkness/turmoil that's eating them alive and wanting to come out so they can tell everyone how they ''really'' feel about them. The NPC that is in charge of teaching the player character new skills turns out to be the player character's inner desires of wanting to abandon the role of hero and it manifests itself as a separate entity, attacking the player character for total dominance since they're still resisting their inner desires.]]

* ''[[Literature/{{Chalion}} The Curse of Chalion]]'': Poor Cazaril! To list all his tribulations would be a massive wall of text, but to sum up: in the novel, he rides 800 miles on horseback with a demon-infested tumor in his stomach. ''Before'' the novel takes place, he holds a fortress against an extended seige, and the starvation and disease that go along with that. ''Then'' he's sold into slavery aboard a galley, where he nearly dies to save [[ChekhovsGun Chekhov's Oarman]]. By the end of the novel he has literally almost hero'ed himself to death.

* ''WesternAnimation/SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforce'': By the final episodes of the series, Sprx expresses a great deal of stress and weak will as the team tries to stop Valina and Mandarin from resurrecting [[BigBad Skeleton King]], since as he says so himself, despite all the team's efforts and sacrifices, Skeleton King is ''still'' a threat. [[spoiler: This leaves him vulnerable to the [[ArtifactOfDoom Fire of Hate's]] corruption, which renders him BrainwashedAndCrazy.]]
