* ''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.

* ''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).

* ''TabletopGame/{{Godlike}}'', a supers TabletopRPG set in WorldWarTwo, posits the appearance of superpowered "Talents" starting in 1936. Talents may ''believe'' they got their powers from magical artifacts or radioactive spiders or alien rays, but all are [[PsychicPowers psychics]] with [[RealityWarper the power to warp reality to their will]]. Because they all share the same origin, all Talents can detect other Talent powers in use, and can attempt to interfere with other Talents in a contest of wills.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'': All of the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Phantoms]] in the show are the result of a singular event, a [[RitualMagic dark ritual]] called the Sabbat that killed many people and released the Phantoms that existed within their psyches. This also serves as Wizard's origin; Haruto was present at the Sabbat, but fought back from the DespairEventHorizon, gaining access to his Phantom's magical power in the process. Later on the show introduces characters who got powers independent of the Sabbat, like [[SixthRanger Beast]], who found an artifact TransformationTrinket with a Phantom sealed inside of it.
