If you think about it, this is actually rather sensible. Even super heroes and heroines aren't going to be fighting for their lives every single minute of every day, and in most cases [[PowerIncontinence the powers won't shut off]]. If it's more convenient, then why ''not'' make your life a little simpler? Call it "[[WaxOnWaxOff practice]]" if you have to justify it (or just ask them "[[MundaneMadeAwesome What do you mean, it's not awesome?]]").

Awesomeness put to mundane use. Just let loose your [[{{Kiai}} roar of power]] and... cook. Or play video games. Or something.

something. Hey, sometimes WithGreatPowerComesGreatPerks.



MartialArtsAndCrafts is a subset of this trope, for when martial arts abilities are used for reasons other than fighting. Also an opposite of sorts to CutLexLuthorACheck, InverseLawOfUtilityAndLethality, ReedRichardsIsUseless and UselessSuperpowers. If this is applied to killing someone (such as, say, a gigantic nuke against a feeble human), it may become ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill.

Also compare UtilityMagic, for when the primary purpose of something which is awesome (magic, in this case) is something mundane. Compare PricelessPaperweight, which is using a priceless or important item for a mundane task.
