* Franchise/SpiderMan has experienced this. Tying in with the live-action film series, he was granted organic webshooters. After the events in "The Other", he developed night-vision and stingers within his body. Since ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay'', however, these abilities have been RetConned away, and eventually passed onto his clone Kaine.

* A frequent plot-point in ''Series/The Sentinel''--some new aspect of Jim's heightened senses manifest itself and throws him for a loop; Blair fixes it.

* ComicBook/{{Superboy}}, the clone of Superman, started out with tactile telekinesis which allowed him to simulate Superman's basic FlyingBrick powers and stayed this way for over a decade (real life time), but starting shortly before he joined the ComicBook/TeenTitans, he started picking up Superman's abilities in earnest. As of the ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'' series, Superboy now has all of Superman's powers having manifested freeze breath just in time to start a black lantern ring. The reason for the shift was the retconning of his origin to make him a true hybrid clone of Franchise/{{Superman}} and LexLuthor.

* The ''GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'' used the ''HeroSystem'' rules regarding ExperiencePoints, thus allowing characters to [[PointBuy purchase]] new powers. Restrictions were put into place, however, that only allowed new superpowers that made sense when compared to the character's base concepts. Several storylines involved the player figuring out how to use these new powers.

* Aylee goes through this several times in ''SluggyFreelance'' due to hers species' involuntary {{Shapeshifting}} ability. Her abilities have included flight, giving off electromagnetic pulses, breathing fire, having a nearly impenetrable spell, sprouting spikes, and being over 100 feet tall. Normally acquiring a new power means losing her previous ones, though she has retained her wings through most transformations.
* ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' plays with this when Bob briefly gains superpowers that he can't control well.

* In the WhateleyUniverse, this is one of the basic tropes for most everyone. The setting is the SuperHeroSchool Whateley Academy, where mutants from all over the world go after getting their PubertySuperPower. Few of them can get the best from their powers without training, and even those with the obvious powers (Lancer has the standard flying brick package) can learn better ways to use their abilities. In particular, Lancer's back story has him having to learn to use his powers in a hurry when his brother ratted him out to the local mutant-haters on the army base, leading to a fight in which Lancer had to bust up a couple jeeps and an Abrams tank to get away.

* ''{{Freakazoid}}'' parodied this and [[LampshadeHanging hung a lampshade on it]] in the first episode of its second season, with Freakazoid struggling to develop telekinesis because "he needs a new power".
