Causes vary. It could simply be the hero wearing him/herself out after a good case of HeroicResolve -- or BottledHeroicResolve -- or it could be the consequence of using a DangerousForbiddenTechnique. Some works directly support this via CastFromHitPoints. Often caused by PhlebotinumOverload, deliberately removing {{Power Limiter}}s, or applying {{Deadly Upgrade}}s, especially if the hero is a FlawedPrototype. It might be represented with burning TronLines, TaintedVeins, VolcanicVeins or [[CriticalStatusBuff turning red]]. If it's done on purpose, it may be a HeroicSacrifice, but it is at least as likely to be [[SuperPowerMeltdown accidental]].

* [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Miles Vorkosigan]]'s seizure disorder. Technically, it's a sort of epilepsy due to neurotransmitters instead of electrical impulses, a relic of his [[HumanPopsicle cryofreezing]]...but really, it's his body's payback for what he did to it for thirteen years. Not that he let up afterward...

* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', after fighting and getting seriously pounded by [[spoiler:a Grey Angel]], Karyl then decides that he's perfectly capable of moving about on his own and needs no medical attention. A day of his regular level of activity later, when he's asked to kneel, he instead falls flat on his face and faints.

** In addition, reaching this state is more or less a OnceAnEpisode event for Dresden, who typically ends each book barely able to stand under his own power.

** In addition, reaching this state is more or less a OnceAnEpisode event for Dresden, who typically ends each book barely able to stand under his own power. After ''Changes'', this is even more frequent, as it turns out that much of the power of [[spoiler:the Winter Knight]] is essentially allowing Harry to not to feel pain, and so to push his body beyond breaking point. It's speculated that this is intentional, [[spoiler:to allow the Winter Queen the chance to dispose of a Knight while he's weakened after a fight]].

** Actually doing this far too often (bathing in Apokoliptian firepits to restore his strength, using Kryptonite to destroy damaged cells, and direct exposure to Rao's energy) renders permanent damage to Superman, [[spoiler:and eventually ends up killing him.]]

* In Creator/FredSaberhagen's ''BookOfSwords'' the sword Townsaver essentially forces its wielder into RROD. You can't succumb to your wounds during the fight, but the sword doesn't help you avoid fatal wounds. Once the fight is done, so are you.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Godslave}}'', the Blacksmiths seem to attempt to invoke this by picking up daily fights with Edith so that at some point she reaches this and can't win anymore.

* Whoever uses the power of "Eye of Aeon" in ''11eyes'' will end up causing great pain and strain on the user. Protagonist Kakeru at one point have his entire body nerve cords severed because of it. With each use means danger to the user as it sucks the soul of its user.

* In Manga/AirGear, the Sonia/[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Thornier]] road, while powerful, works while causing immense strain on the user's body. [[spoiler: Ringo]] was left in intense pain after her duel with [[spoiler: Ikki]].

* ''CaptainTsubasa'', Jun Misugi has a heart disease, but he insists to play full-time against Nankatsu SC. At the climax the disease acts up, causing him to stand frozen for a moment in the sense that his heart completely stops in the middle of the play. He turns out more or less all right, but he then has to stand by his team's goal post for the rest of the game ''and'', in the original series, is hauled to the hospital immediately after the match is over.

* Confessors from TheSwordOfTruth have the so called Con Dar ([[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Blood Rage]]), an ExplosiveOverclocking mode which can only be invoked [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge only on behalf of another]]. Their MindControl powers no longer need time to get recharged, they require no sleep, feel no pain, can throw around lightning... very few survive once they are done.
