* ''IronMan'' The first film established that the Iron Man suits only functioned while they had sufficient power, and Tony replaced the Mark 1 arc reactor with a more powerful one to power the Mark 2 and 3 Iron Man suits. Given that they were designed for sustained flight, they needed the extra power. When he has to use the proto reactor in his Mark 2 suit, he has notably less power. Each part of Mark 42 is implied to have its own reactor because it was made to come apart and move remotely. It's also an example of what happens when you push this trope too far; it's so complicated that it rarely works as well as its supposed to.

* {{Literature/Worm}} while not calling its superpowers magic, has this in full force.
** Every cape has limitations to their powers, dictated by an in-universe law known as the Manton Effect
** Even [[spoiler:[[BigBad Scion]]]] has these limits in place, despite outward appearances.

** In 5th edition, while game mechanics divide Arcane and Divine magic, there are several ways for a caster of one style to pick up spells from the other, or in some cases bridge the gap. Aside from rangers, Divine casters have access to all possible spells for their class, and pick and choose what they prepare-easily justified as the caster's deity granting spells. Some spells are not available for wizards, warlocks, or sorcerers, being restricted to divine magic; other spells are restricted to arcane casters. However, certain cleric domains give access to spells normally restricted to arcane casters, while some abilities and features grant divine magic to arcane casters (in particular, an optional wizard variant allows him/her to cast spells from a cleric's domain list as arcane magic). Bards, however, draw magic from the fabric of the universe; their basic spell list draws from both the cleric's and wizard's primary spells, and can also pick spells from any list to add to their repertoire via a class feature.

* Disney's version of ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' puts rules on genie magic. They can't kill anyone, force someone to fall in love, or bring people back from the dead ([[CameBackWrong "It's not a pretty picture; I don't like doing it!!!"]]). Genie doesn't mention it at first, but also eventually adds that they can't use their magic to serve themselves. And you can't wish for extra wishes, either.

* ''FanFic/HeroesOfTheDesk'' depicts characters of ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' who have come to life in the style of ''Literature/TheIndianInTheCupboard''. The process that made them real [[AppliedPhlebotinum isn't explained]] but it follows a defined set of rules that [[ExploitedTrope the characters learn to make use of]].
** Any Hero character created in plastic comes to life when placed in a specific chest.
** Any Hero character who "dies" disappears in blue mist before reappearing inside said chest.

* Stardust, a crossover with WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic and VideoGame/XCom, integrates Equestrian magic into the psionics and other advanced technology the aliens display in the original game. The element "elerium" from the game is stated to be identical to Equestrian "arcanite," and is used to combine magic and technology, allowing for a positively dizzying array of MagiTek weapons and devices.

* Stardust, AradsStardust, a crossover with WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic and VideoGame/XCom, integrates VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown, equates Equestrian magic into with the psionics and other advanced abilities and technology the aliens display in the original game. The element "elerium" from the game is stated to be identical to Equestrian "arcanite," and is used to combine magic and technology, allowing for a positively dizzying array of MagiTek weapons and devices. The author gets pretty much about as in-depth as is possible without a degree in physics when it comes to explaining the mechanics of magic.

* In ''Film/TheLastAirbender'', M. Night Shyamalan changed a significant aspect of Firebending so that it aligned better with the other bending arts. In the show, Firebenders could create their own fire, but for the movie, they are now required to have an external fire SOURCE to manipulate. [[ElementalBaggage As he said, Katara needed a bag of water and Toph needed to be touching the earth, so why don't firebenders need fire?]] [[note]] In the series, Iroh explained this source was the bender's own body heat. [[/note]]

*** It's hinted at with the [[GameBreaker Sigil Stones]] in ''Oblivion'': at higher levels, they're more powerful than Soul Gems, but they can only bestow one spell effect on a weapon or piece of armor. In short, it's a quick-and-dirty way to get a super-enchantment on anything you want, that doesn't even require an Altar.
