* In ''[[{{Nightside}} Just Another Judgement Day]]'', there's a humorous scene at the Adventurer's Club when a wannabe supervillain with no clue how his (stolen) magic rings work accidentally teleports himself into the midst of a huge crowd of Nightside heroes, rather than into the neighboring club he'd intended to rob.

* In ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'', Sydney has seven orbs that grant her superpowers when gripped in her hand, but since she didn't find a manual when she found the orbs, she had to do a lot of experimenting to figure out what the powers were, and has to do more whenever the orbs level up to figure out what new or upgraded abilities have been unlocked. As of 500 comics into the strip, she has yet to figure out what the red and green orbs do.

* In ''Literature/TheReader2016'', Sefia experiences this while trying to figure out her Sight abilities, mainly because she's not formally trained. Quite often it fizzles out, and when it does work she's exhausted.

* Averted in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'', "The Great Brain Robbery". After inadvertently swapping minds with the Flash, ComicBook/LexLuthor seems to fare pretty well in his new body, and the other League members have a hell of a time trying to stop him. This ''could'' be explained as Lex having studied the heroes over the years, as well as his advanced intellect.

** Ichigo Kurosaki accidentally sets off his [[TookALevelInBadass Getsuga Tenshou]] attack immediately following his achievement of Shikai. He doesn't learn how to fire it at will until he reaches [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Bankai]]. Much plot with Ichigo concerns the fact he has great power, but no real clue how to control it. His sword is mocked explicitly for being a "Big ball of fluff".
