** There is an item called the Sacred Ash, which revives all fainted Pokémon in your party AND fully restores their HP. The catch, usually the only place it's found is Ho-Oh holding it, so there's only one in the game. The Festival Plaza in ''Sun & Moon'', however, let's you purchase it.

*** Some [=TMs=] could be bought in the first four generations, so the player technically could teach certain [=TM=] moves to multiple members of their party. However, the [=TMs=] could still only be ''used'' once apiece, so players would have to repeatedly buy them to do so.

** Double Jeopardy has a cannon as its main weapon that shoots a similarly shaped, sized weight, though at about 190 miles per hour (or about 305 kilometers per hour). Like Chrome Fly's drone, it can only shoot it once, as it's not equipped to reload another slug. Unlike Chrome Fly, it managed to hit its opponent Gamma 9 on its initial match, though Gamma 9's operators were GenreSavvy enough to never be directly in front of Double Jeopardy whenever possible, which meant it didn't fire that cannon until right before it was knocked out.

* Some particularly gutsy ''Series/BattleBots'' competitors have chosen to equip their bots with weapons that can only be used once per match:
** Chrome Fly has an otherwise fairly standard design, but it has a companion drone that drops a cylindrical weight. As the drone cannot retrieve this weight and can only carry one at a time, it can only use it once. As luck would have it, the one time it dropped the weight in its entire career, it missed.

* When ComicBook/{{Superboy}} was dying after a particularly strenuous fight [[ComicBook/RobinSeries Robin]] was able to find a cure in one of ComicBook/LexLuthor's secret labs. However the cure could only be used once and any attempt to use the same concoction again after having used it once would kill Conner.

* The UsefulNotes/NintendoWii was a massive success that was mostly helped from word of mouth spreading fast and Nintendo making games aimed at the casual/non gamer crowd. Nintendo tried a similar strategy again with the UsefulNotes/WiiU, but it bombed hard due to Nintendo barely advertising the console (which caused many people to get confused and think that the gamepad was the console itself and others thought it was just another version of the Wii) and the demographic from the Wii had moved onto mobile and tablet gaming. Nintendo learned from their mistakes and failure of the Wii U by making the UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch appealing to the right crowd, launching a more aggressive advertising campaign, and having more games in the pipeline.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': In season 7, Sam and Dean eventually acquire a VillainBeatingArtifact that can be used to kill an otherwise NighInvulnerable Leviathan, but it can only be used once. They decide to target their leader Dick Roman, hoping that [[KeystoneArmy his army will collapse without him]]. [[spoiler:When the weapon is finally used, it sucks both Dean and Castiel along into the monster afterlife.]]
