** Right before the TournamentArc, the main cast receive something called Second Origin from Ultear, which is basically just an increase of magic that one user can use. It has the same effect as this trope tho as they all became exceptionally more powerful; Gray's ice making becomes larger, Lucy can summon and maintain two spirits at once when her previous limit was one at a time, and Erza can use an exceptionally powerful armor with it.

** Sting and Rogue has two levels of power-ups to their White and Shadow Dragon modes. First is the White Drive and Shadow Drive which enhances thier power and speed a step above their normal levels. The second is the Dragon force mode, which they can enter at their free will as they have Lacrima crystals embedded inside their body and this will power them up exponentially.

** Laxus is different than the other Dragon Slayers in that he typically fights with normal non-Dragon Slayer lightning magic, which by itself, is as powerful as the others normal Dragon Slayer magic (he defeated the entire Raven Tail team with just this}. He automatically enters Dragon Force whenever he uses his Dragon Slayer magic at all. Thus he only uses this when he fights powerful opponents like Jura or Tempesta (a two-on-one match against both Natsu and Gajeel) and his Dragon Slayer magic has been seen to be more powerful than most of the Dragon Slayers' power-ups.

** Natsu typically fights with his normal Flame Dragon Slayer mode, but has two different but arguably equally powerful power-ups. One is Dragon Force which he gets when eating powerful magically imbued substance like Lacrima crystals and it increases his powers to that of a true fragon (although this is still debatable, seeing that he can barely make a dent in a fight with real dragons). His second power-up is the Lightning Flame Dragon mode which he gained when he ate Laxus's lightnings during the fight with Master Hades at Tenroujima amd it allows him to combine his fire-based attacks with lightnings, more than doubling its powers. He can enter Lightning Flame mode at will, but using it will exhaust him much faster than usual.

* In {{Literature/Worm}} there are rare cases where someone who already has a superpower gets a second trigger event giving them a completely new power. However, this leaves the recipient so psychologically screwed up that they rarely last long. Most capes get better over time through just practice and using their powers more intelligently.

Late in the story it's explained that [[spoiler:the second trigger simply removes some of the limitations meant to protect the shard's host]].
** Some capes actually experience second triggers immediately after their first. The stress of triggering combined with the actual event pushing them over the edge twice. [[spoiler:Taylor triggered twice in the locker but never fully accessed her secondary power]].
