** ''Anime/YesPrecure5'''s Cure Aqua suddenly picked up the ability to turn her "Aqua Ribbon" baton into a sword. The reasoning behind this was that this allowed [[RuleOfCool an awesome swordfight]]. The sword returned during TheMovie for exactly the same reason.

Added DiffLines:

* In VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Imperishable Night; apparently, ''everyone'' has the ability to cause an endless night in order to restore the original moon. It makes sense with [[RealityWarper Yukari]], but the rest seemed to incidentally have some sort of magic in order to do it.

Added DiffLines:

** Each of Yhwach's elite guard shows off a new ability when they're about to be defeated, even if they should already be dead. And when that ability doesn't prevent them from being defeated, they pull out ''another'' new power. Lille Barro perhaps being the worse given that his first [[OneWingedAngel unexplained power-up]] comes ''after'' his head has been cut off, and the next after his own power has been turned against him.

** Completely justified, given that Tony Stark is constantly tinkering with and [[strike:upgrading his suit]] building new models of his suit. By the end of ''Film/IronMan3'', he's at Mark XLII (42). And he keeps every single version. (Except the ones that explode/malfunction... for obvious reasons.)

** In the [[{{Filler}} Invasion]] [[{{Anime}} Arc]]. the villain's zanpakutou is this. [[VillainSue Kageroza's]] zanpakutou has the power to manipulate space/time. Then it's revealed to have the power to teleport and duplicate. Then it has the power to resurrect "dead" reigai. Then, when Ichigo is about to defeat the villain, his zanpakutou is revealed to have a cloning ability. The apparent damsel of the arc, [[CreatorsPet Nozomi]]'s zanpakutou has the power to drain reiatsu. Then it's revealed to be able absorb the attacks of anything thrown at it, combine it with her own power and throw it back as a more powerful attack. Then it's revealed that Kageroza's and Nozomi's power are two halves of the same original zanpakutou and, when recombined, the zanpakutou gains all the powers in combination which suddenly results in the power to destroy the entirety of Soul Society with a single activation command. And, somehow, the original zanpakutou never had any of these abilities at all until the owner, fed up with being treated as weak, turned evil and decided to obtain more power by splitting himself in two and recombining himself (how this makes him more powerful and gives him powers he never previously possessed is never explained).

*** It seems to be a shortcut whenever Aizen is involved. Originally Aizen was dead dead, then Kubo felt he would have made a good villain so he retconed his powers as "The power to control senses so everyone only thought I was dead". In that light, the Hougyoku's power as a wish granter could just as easily be another retcon of "You thought its power was something specific but it's actually a general power that could also do that specific thing".

** While being attacked by Yhwach, Ichigo spontaneously uses a new power to prevent himself from being ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice. However, this is immediately explained in-story in a manner that ties in to both his spontaneous healing in his first fight with Kenpachi and with the power restoration technique that was used on Uryuu. [[spoiler:It had also been theorised in the fandom for many years that Ichigo's mother would end up being revealed as a quincy.]]

* In ''Manga/MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch''<script id="gpt-impl-0.9420256039593369" src="http://partner.googleadservices.com/gpt/pubads_impl_82.js"></script>, the characters are frequently granted new karaoke songs ([[MagicMusic the weapon of choice in the series]]) whenever the ones in the previous episode didn't work. This becomes somewhat ridiculous, considering these upgrades are manifested by the goddess the protagonists are attempting to summon, and [[spoiler:when they actually summon her, all she does is tell them to sing...]]
** Oh yeah, and that [[IntimateHealing amnesia kiss]]? Lucia gets that too. Randomly.

* Considering all of the above examples, it comes as a surprise that 1984's ''Film/{{Supergirl}}'' completely averts this trope. Supergirl has all the powers she's supposed to have, but no "extras" are added.
** In what comics is she able to change her clothes and hair color by going behind a tree or use {{EyeBeams}} to make flowers grow?
