* DC's third Comicbook/BlueBeetle, Jaime Reyes, gets his powers from an advanced piece of technology that's pressumed in-universe to be magic related but the series slowly reveals that it was deliberately sent to Earth by an unknown alien species. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, the Beetle was designed to infiltrate and slowly conquer Earth]].

* A major recurring plot point in IDW's ''{{ComicBook/Transformers}}'' series. The Tyrest Accords explicitly prohibit any alien races from using Cybertronian tech, and prohibit Cybertronians from attempting to export such tech to other races. This was agreed to very early on in the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons, and is one of the few points of agreement between the factions, because the consequences of widespread Cybertronian weaponry are too ugly to contemplate. [[spoiler: Optimus Prime recently declared ''Earth'' a colony of Cybertron, partially because Earth's governments had been scavenging Cybertronian tech and the Galatic Council would come down on them with extreme prejudice.]]
** Speaking of, scavenged Cybertronian tech is how IDW revived ''{{WesternAnimation/MASK}}''.

** One amusing aversion -- they never get around to trying to replicate staff weapons. In ''Stargate'' KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter, so [[GenreSavvy why waste the resources]]? ([[StunGuns Zatts]] would have been useful, but they ''are'' kind of busy.)

''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' Has this in the form of Wander's Hat. While this show takes place in outer space and the main characters are all aliens, "The Bad Hatter " reveals that Wander stole the hat from people who were misusing it. Ideally, it only gives you the things you need and if you don't take the time to understand why you get what you do out of it the results [[HilarityEnsues can be very funny.]] However, as an AnimateInanimateObject of sorts, it is susceptible to torture and being forced to give you what you want instead.This has a [[PowerIncontinence disastrous outcome.]] When the hat is inadvertently stolen by [[BigBad Lord]] [[LargeHam Hater]] Wander is stranded on the planet without his banjo or anything else. He even sums it up by saying "No hat, No Wander!" Demonstrating how handy it really is.
