** When Mongul steals a yellow power ring, the first thing he does is order the ring to tell him ''everything'' it can do, then spends 96 hours practicing before using it for supervillainy. It fails to mention the [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy administrative override Sinestro builds into each ring]].

*** In Ultimate Alien, the Ultimatrix can make his aliens go OneWingedAngel... but there's still mistransformations, and it lacks some features the Omnitrix had, which he finds out about by ''trying'' to use them only to find out, no can do.

* [[AllThereInTheManual Prequel stories]] of ''Anime/{{K}}'' show the original HOMRA trio figuring out their powers this way in Izumo's bar, after Mikoto first awakens as the Red King and makes the other two his Clansmen. So if you were wondering why Izumo had to replace the bar...

* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'' Lelouch instinctively knows the basic principle behind the Geass but not all of the specific rules. For example, when he first gains the Geass power, he knows it can be used to force a group of people to obey any command he gives, even taking their own lives, but when Viletta confronted him in her [[HumongousMecha Knightmare]], he found out the hard way that he needed direct eye contact for his power to work. Similarly, he does not realize that he cannot use the Geass more than once on the same person until he makes the mistake of trying to use it on Kallen twice. After this second mishap he uses logical, scientific methods to deduce all of the possible applications and restrictions of his new ability -- such as commanding a girl to make a mark on a wall every day to see how long the effect of his Geass takes to wear off. [[spoiler:Turns out, it ''doesn't'' wear off. Ever. {{Word of God}} says she went back to Britannia after Season 1 and her attempts to get back to Japan and mark the wall are interpreted as sleepwalking thanks to the time zone difference.]] The fifth episode shows just how CrazyPrepared he is by having him rattle off all the things he's learned via experimentation, such as its maximum effective range of 270 meters. The audio commentary lampshades this when the voice actors (including [[Creator/JunFukuyama Lelouch's]]) muse on exactly ''how'' he discovered these things, suggesting (for the range example) that he used cell phones in walkie-talkie fashion.

* Brought up infrequently in {{LEGO}}'s ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' franchise. The Toa Metru spend almost a year's worth of story not knowing how to activate their [[MaskOfPower mask powers]] -- they eventually discover them in the movie ''Legends of Metru Nui''. Forming [[FusionDance Toa Kaita fusions]] is another power of theirs they didn't know how to master. Universally, the much more powerful Toa Nui fusion is something that ''no'' Toa ever managed to achieve, and is as such seen as a mere fable. And in the [[WhatCouldHaveBeen canceled 5th movie]], Kiina and Ackar would have struggled to keep their newly acquired ElementalPowers in check.

* After the title character of ''Webcomic/{{Spinnerette}}'' acquires spider powers from a gene-splicing ray, she gets to ''literally'' figure out how to shot web. Like [[Film/SpiderManTrilogy movie-verse Spidey]], she eventually learns how to do it; ''unlike'' movie-verse Spidey, though, it doesn't come from her wrists... Sahira, a biology major, almost dies laughing at this:

* The titular character from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', who's has magical Gem powers, but being a human child, doesn't understand how to use them yet. At the best of times, they just don't manifest; at other points, they manifest in the ''worst'' possible ways, such as when his shape-shifting nearly aged him to death or turned him into a cancerous ball of living cats.

** All young witches and wizards can use magic during times of stress or when feeling extreme emotions, though the effects are notoriously unpredictable (though they'll often reflect the emotion the kid's feeling; when Harry wanted to escape Dudley and his friends, he apparated on top of the school chimney, for instance). It's shown that they can gain ''some'' control over it on their own, like Lily did as a kid, but to do anything functional and avoid losing control of their powers they need schooling.
* Deliberately invoked in ''Literature/TheImmortals'' when [[spoiler: Emperor Ozorne]] turns himself into a Stormwing to avoid punishment. As the Stormwing queen Barzha tells him, he just lost all his mortal magic in exchange for immortal magic, which he has no idea how to control. [[spoiler:Sadly, he gets a grip on it pretty fast.]]
