* ''Film/StarWarsTheForceAwakens'': Whatever Rey's origins are, she apparently heard of the Jedi and Force Powers (because when she meets Hans Solo and he claims "all of it" to be true, she doesn't demand clarification); the rest of the movie has her try out a variety of moves, gradually mastering them as she goes.

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', QuirkyMiniBossSquad leader Captain Ginyu trades bodies with Goku. This is fairly ingenious, because he waited until he was weakened and nearly defeated by Goku before trading. To make it even better, he inflicted a severe wound to his own body (punching himself through the chest) immediately before making the switch. However, he couldn't get full power out of Goku's body, because he doesn't know his powerup technique, the Kaio-ken. Unfortunately for him, Vegeta then shows up and beats the snot out of him before he gets it to work.

Unfortunately for him, Vegeta then shows up and beats the snot out of him before he gets it to work. And then when he reverses the trick so he can try the same technique to body-jack Vegeta, the trick doesn't work twice; they throw a frog in the way.



* In ''VideoGame/GateKeepers'', Ukiya Shun is blessed by the Gate of Wind. It took him several episodes just to properly summon the power again (which he did in the first episode by accident), and an episode testing a new technique (which he later perfects).

* In the 2003 anime version of ''Anime/{{FullmetalAlchemist}}'' Ed learns of the ability to transmute without a circle by clasping his hands in frustration then grabbing a basin of water, heating it through alchemy to boiling temperature. Afterward, he has no clue how he managed to do it, and his attempts to reproduce the effect are unsuccessful until he finds himself in another emergency situation.

** And now yet another ability has come out in this way. [[spoiler:Ichigo's about to get his throat carved out, and suddenly manifests Blut Vene... a ''Quincy'' defensive technique that blocks the attack. Ichigo not only has no idea how he did this, he didn't even realize that he ''had'' done anything at all until the bad guy pointed it out.]]

** Part of the reason for Renji's loss against Byakuya is that he didn't know how to control his Bankai, enabling Byakuya to disrupt its rhythm and leave him vulnerable. Byakuya claims that mastering bankai takes at least ten years of training. Something that he has, and Renji (who had just achieved bankai ''that day'') lacks.

The reason [[SubvertedTrope this didn't apply to Ichigo]] was because (1) his SuperpoweredEvilSide intervened for a while, and (2) although he lacked much control over it, his bankai had more than enough ''raw power'' to compensate.



** After Kaku ate a Devil Fruit that transformed him into a giraffe or giraffe-man hybrid, he had trouble changing into the specific form he wanted and, since he hadn't been able to explore his new capabilities, just made new attacks up as he went along. Even so, he was a formidable opponent and adapted to his new powers much faster than the average DF user. Still, having a full-grown giraffe fall through the ceiling [[Funny/OnePiece made for some hilarious moments]].

** 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.
