* Lucid dreaming can be like this sometimes: you know that (at least in your dream) you're a RealityWarper, but you can't figure out how to actually ''do'' anything with that.

* Lucid dreaming can be like this sometimes: you know that (at least in your dream) you're a RealityWarper, but you can't figure out how to actually ''do'' anything with that. It also takes a degree of control to think of anything to do (imagination being largely tied up running the dream).

* ''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.

She notably learns them ''much'' faster than anyone else in the series; she's better after two days than Luke was after [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack three years]].

* 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. 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.
** The same thing happens with Goku Black in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': [[spoiler:Even though Zamasu was quite powerful after stealing Goku's body, he had no idea how to use Goku's abilities and only learned to do so after watching him in action.]]

When Vegeta asks him what exactly he just did, Black shrugs and says he has no idea: his power has grown beyond his own understanding of it.

** Hilariously played straight in ''Film/IronMan2'' where the various corporations and countries (including NorthKorea) tries to replicate the Iron Man suit, only to be met with disaster each time. Justin Hammer's own demonstration even shows that, without proper knowledge, simply ''turning to the left'' can potentially snap your spine in two due to the hydraulics turning the torso too far. [[spoiler: Subverted with Rhodey though, who not only managed to steal one of Tony's suits, but thoroughly beat Tony into the ground with it. Granted Tony was piss drunk, but that's still rather impressive. It's implied that Rhodey only ever saw the suit, but never actually wore it before then.]]

* 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.
