# The powers themselves may or may not produce strange side effects on the user. It usually varies and depends on how the user gains his powers, the user himself or the very nature of the powers themselves. side effects may range from small to gigantic. For exemple, the user could develop a [[SuperPoweredEvilSide dark side if the source of his powers is malevolent in nature (like [[BlackMagic black magic]], for exemple).

# The powers may or may not be hard to control (at first, at least) . This makes sense. After all, the user's powers are eldritch and alien in nature, so not only are they hard to understand, but also, nobody's really sure how they work, including the user, wich will obviously make it hard for him to use them correctly. Maybe he'll destroy something he doesn't want to destroy by accident? Maybe his powers will have unexpected side-effects on whoever or whatever he uses them on? Maybe his powers will change and become different as time goes on?

# The powers may or may not require [[PowerAtAPrice specific criteria to be fulfilled in order to be gained]]. A price, so to speak. For exemple, a dark sacrificial ritual must be performed to summon a god that may grant said powers. Another good exemple would be to make a literal deal with a demon so that he can give you powers at the cost of your soul.

* One of the many consequences of taking high levels of Taint in WhiteWolf's ''TabletopGame/{{Aberrant}}''. Low-level aberrations might include glowing eyes or bulging muscles, while the higher levels of aberration include becoming too hideous to view or having an entire vestigial body. By the time of ''TabletopGame/{{Trinity}}'', set in Aberrant's future, as far as most people are concerned, all Aberrants are mutated, twisted freaks... though as the game goes on, it's revealed there are a good number who still look pretty human.

* ''Manga/SoulEater'', being [[CreepyAwesome the kind of manga that it is,]] has several examples of this trope.
** [[TykeBomb Crona]] has had all [[AmbiguousGender their]] blood drained and replaced with [[PsychoSerum Black Blood]] - as a result they gained the ability to solidify their blood at will, making them near impossible to cut, as well as to control it even when it leaves their body. This means that even if you manage to wound Crona, their spilled drops of blood will just skewer you. This would be just a classic case of BloodyMurder if not for the fact that their blood also serves as the host for [[EquippableAlly Ragnarok,]] a soul-eating liquid parasite that can manifest as a massive HumanoidAbomination [[BodyHorror sprouting out of Crona's spine,]] or as a pitch black longsword fashioned out of Crona's blood that ''[[HellIsThatNoise screams constantly]]'' when Crona is fighting.
** Snake Witch [[BigBad Medusa]] has her entire body completely stuffed full with writhing magical snakes. She can put these snakes into others' bodies as well through their mouths, where they will serve as a parasitic case of AnimalEyeSpy and [[LudicrousGibs messily tear them apart from the inside out at her command.]] [[spoiler:After she was killed by Dr. Stein during the Kishin's awakening, she managed to pull off a risky magic, turned into a snake and came back [[AdultFear in the body of a little girl]] whose body she [[BodyHorror invaded]] through the mouth in her snake form.]] Yeah, it's not pretty.
** While less pronounced than the rest of the examples here, the witch Arachne has her entire body [[TheWormThatWalks composed of millions upon millions of spiders.]]
** Obviously, the [[HumanoidAbomination Kishin]] [[BiggerBad Asura]] excels at this. Aside from carrying an aura of all-permeating madness that causes anyone near him to undergo horrifying hallucinations, he wears his own streched-out skin as a scarf and can use it as CombatTentacles. On top of that he can messily regurgitate a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vajra vajra]] (which he gained by ''eating his [[EquippableAlly Demon Weapon]] alive'') from his throat and use it to fire off FrickinLaserBeams. He can also regrow lost limbs entirely, a process which is agonizingly painful for him, but he simply ''doesn't care.''
