***It's been tried on ''very'' rare occasion, though usually prevented by the fact that you can't beam stuff through the shields (the enemy's ''or'' your own! The need, or inability, to drop shields to beam someone up while being shot at has come up several times.)

* Joey in ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' has the power to melt and reform metal at will- potentially destructive, but generally pretty harmless once he manages to get a handle on his powers. Then he uses it to kill Lucio in self-defense by reforming a metal bar into a pointed spike and driving it into the poor guy's heart. For his part, Joey is horrified at what he's done.

** Under some interpretations of the rules, a Cleric with healing spells can be the most dangerous thing to undead, as healing magic causes them to take dmaage. This same rule is explicitly described as one of the few sure ways to kill a Nilbog, a (non-undead) creature that actually ''gains'' hit points every time it sustains damage. Healing, on the other hand, does it injury.

* In ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen'', Nightcrawler, whose only mutant power is teleportation, puts it to devastating use against Spiral, by using it to PortalCut her robotic arms.

* Ban from ''Manga/SevenDeadlySins'' has ability to snatch things from people. This, despite sounding harmless, allows him to take from person whatever he wants -- including body parts or internal organs, which he uses to dismember opponent from a distance.

** Xocoscalpere has the power to sculpt chocolate with such incredible accuracy, that anything that he crafts can mimic properties of the real things. Naturally, this power is used almost exlusively for making weapons - like turning chocolate bars from a nearby vending machine into throwing knives for example.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Sean Cassidy, a.k.a. Banshee, whose power is, at its most basic, a case of MakeMeWannaShout. Thanks to multiple decades of practise, he can use it for all sorts of delightful things, like liquefying granite and shattering wands to powder. And it also works on ''human bone''. And that's leaving aside his CompellingVoice, which he once used to on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge that gave Nick Fury ''nightmares'', and his ability to dampen sound around him, meaning that he can pull a StealthHiBye that would impress Batman and, in one case, make sure a claymore mine goes off completely silently.

** The only powers bestowed on [[spoiler: pre-GroundhogDayLoop Homura]] were a sort of HammerSpace and temporary TimeStop — pretty amazing stuff, but not very useful for giving {{Dojikko}} NewMeat like her enough direct offensive punch to be useful in combat compared with the other {{Magical Girl}}s. So, she cobbles together homemade pipe bombs from recipes on the web, to use as improvised grenades stowed in her HyperspaceArsenal… Then she starts teaching herself how to shoot with guns she stole using her timestop powers… By the finale, she's trained so heavily and stowed away so much firepower, she could shame a [[MoreDakka LARGE army]].
** If you think about it, Mami is kinda like this, too. By WordOfGod, her only ability is... [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway to make ribbons.]] No guns, no bullets, just ribbons. HOWEVER, also by WordOfGod, she was in MagicalGirl business since as young as 13 years old. How? Well, AintNoRule [[GreenLanternRing that she couldn't shape ribbons in a way that can shoot magical bullets, also made of specially made ribbons.]] One engineering lesson later.... [[spoiler: [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion Also,]] AintNoRule She can't make [[HyperspaceArsenal anything,]] ''[[MoreDakka anything,]]'' from ribbons, including [[MesACrowd functional copy of herself.]] She's basically [[GreenLantern John]] [[TheEngineer Stewart]] if he was a MagicalGirl.]]

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Windrunners and Bondsmiths share access to the Surge of Adhesion, which simply lets them stick things together. Turns out that this can be quite useful in a fight, as the Surgebinder sprays power over a large area, all his opponents stick to it, and then he kills them while they're stuck. It helps that the Surgebinder is immune to their own Adhesion.

**Additionally, while it's never addressed in-universe, FridgeLogic would indicate that many of the problems the crew faced could've been solved by Scotty teleporting a warhead into the BigBad's / MonsterOfTheWeek's lap.
