* 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.

* Amelia Mintz from ''ComicBook/{{Chew}}'' can write or talk about food so vividly that it can cause people to actually taste it. While it definitely makes her a good restaurant critic, it doesn't look that harmful.. until [[BrownNote she sends several armed terrorists to the hospital by loudly reciting unabridged review of particularly bad restaraunt.]] Later her powers was revealed to be able [[spoiler: to induce fatal food poisoning.]]

** There also cibopassimy - power, which allows user to telepathically broadcast something to all people in the world. While this power doesn't seem scary, it can broadcast BrownNote, which [[PersonofMassDestruction was exploited with a devastating effect.]]

** [[spoiler:Cracker]] has the ability to generate an unlimited amount of biscuits and, thanks to this power, has amassed a bounty of 860 million Berries. He was able to achieve this destructive power by creating a limitless army of biscuit soldiers--any adversaries he couldn't defeat through brute force, he defeated through attrition. [[spoiler:At least until he challenged Luffy, who, as a BigEater, chomped through his biscuits faster than he could generate them.]]

* One ''ComicBook/{{Hitman}}'' arc had a supervillainess whose only power was to make roses magically grow. She mostly used it to horribly kill people by making roses grow inside them.

** Doflamingo's power revolves around strings. Sounds lame, but in practice these strings are sharp enough to slice through almost anything, and its strength can go up to 'utterly unbreakable' with the Birdcage technique. Even worse, he can attach these strings and forcefully take control of someone else's body. He can even utilize the strings for SelfSurgery, patching up wounds that would otherwise kill him in short time.
