* ''TabletopGame/{{Progenitor}}'', another ''TabletopGame/{{Wild Talents}}'' setting, subverts the Mass Super-Powering Event by having it empower only one person, and only become a mass event when it turns off superpowers are contagious, so every use of powers on someone has a chance of giving them powers (albeit, slightly weaker). Then those people pass on more (slightly weaker powers), often on enemies they use their powers to stop, and before you know it there are thousands to millions of superpowered individuals (though there is a limit to how many people each person can spread powers to, and that limit decreases to nothing after ten 'generations', so it's not like everyone will get powers).

In SuperHero stories, there are [[HowToGiveACharacterSuperPowers many, many ways]] to [[SuperEmpowering give the lead super powers]]. However, sometimes it becomes cost efficient in terms of descriptive effort or setting construction to give every character the same super hero/villain origin story in a Mass Super-Empowering Event.

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' had such an event in its history, causing most of humanity to develop "quirks" as a result. At the time of the story proper, about four out of every five people have a quirk. However, it's also a SuperpowerLottery in that many quirks aren't particularly useful, such as the ability to stretch your eyes out of your head really far. Also, a person can only ever get one quirk, so whatever you get, you're stuck with it.

* The Terrigen Bomb from Marvel's ''ComicBook/{{Infinity}}'' event awakened the powers of every human carrying Inhuman genes. This became the setup for some new titles for example the new ''{{Comicbook/Ms Marvel|2014}}''.

* ''Series/TheFlash2014''. The same [[MagicalParticleAccelerator particle accelerator]] accident that gave the main character his powers is also responsible for multiple [[VillainOfTheWeek villains of the week]], and the team's stated goal is to deal with any other 'metahumans' similarly created by the accident. Season 2 involves metahumans from an AlternateUniverse, which had its own particle accelerator accident.

** Season four of ''The Flash'' opens with a smaller-scale version. When Barry gets pulled out of the Speed Force, he emerges in the path of a bus, and the energy released turns everyone on board into a metahuman.

* ''Anime/{{Charlotte}}'' has [[spoiler: the short-period comet [[TitleDrop Charlotte]], which passes by Earth every 75 years and spreads dust particles across the planet small enough to be inhaled]], which stimulates the development of superhuman powers in children once they hit [[PubertySuperpower puberty.]]

** For those interested, approx. 6.85 billion people in the world (as of July 2010 estimates), that would be roughly 430,265,625 individuals with amazing superpowers or about 1-in-11 people (granted that's after 1-in-3 people have died).
