* Clare, the protagonist of ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'', seems to be [[spoiler:completely immune to [[TheCorruption Awakening]] (even when she is deliberately trying to!), which threatens every other Claymore]]. The main reason for that is believed to be [[spoiler:Jean's sacrifice to bring her back from the brink of Awakening before, which left Clare with a psychological block that prevents her from transforming]], though this may also have something to do with her being only quarter-yoma.

* Edward Elric of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' is, unlike ''most'' other Alchemists, able to do alchemy without [[GeometricMagic using a circle]]. This, of course, [[CursedWithAwesome came with its]] [[ArtificialLimbs own problems]]. Several other alchemists can also do this, though they paid their price as well. The more GenreSavvy alchemists without this power have circles on their clothing or tattooed on their body, making it even easier for them to use their powers than for Edward who still needs to clap his hands together, but most alchemists who carry their transmutation circles around with them are powerless if those circles get disturbed and can only do specialized alchemy--Mustang can only create fire, Kimblee can only [[StuffBlowingUp blow stuff up]], etc. Alchemy without an array is far more versatile, to the point that Ed can actually ''cancel out others' alchemic reactions''. His alchemy is only limited by his knowledge and creativity, which means that he and other alchemists who have seen the Truth have a massive advantage even over alchemists with array tattoos.

* ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'''s Yuji Sakai isn't doomed to [[RetGone vanish from existence]] like other Torches thanks to a special artifact that periodically replenishes his energy.

* Depending on the [[MultipleChoicePast year/dimension/day-of-the-week]]: ComicBook/PowerGirl is a kryptonian who is immune/resistant to kryptonite because she's really an alternate universe kryptonian. This is because Kryptonians are only susceptible to kryptonite from their own universe, and Power Girl (usually) isn't from the main story Krypton.
** Superman of [[ComicBook/KingdomCome Earth-22]] is not only immune to New Earth kryptonite but also his own due to a lifetime spent soaking up sunlight. ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'' develops this immunity for basically the same reason but it leaves him with a progressive fatal condition. During UsefulNotes/{{the Bronze Age|OfComicBooks}} even the mainstream Superman got in on the act for a little while.
** While most Kryptonians are susceptible to magic, Superboy-Prime ended up being altered just enough that being slugged by a lightning-infused Black Adam did zilch to him.

* ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'': In a world where every living thing is infected with {{nanomachines}}, Rex is one of the few people able to control them.
** He still has to deal with LaserGuidedAmnesia and the occasional BodyHorror, but that's miniscule compared to what the average EVO is subjected to.

* [[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerated]] by Asellus in ''VideoGame/SagaFrontier''. Humans and mystics normally have separate kinds of abilities, strengths and weaknesses; humans learn skills and increase their stats by [[StatGrinding using them in combat]], while Mystics increase their stats and get combat skills by absorbing monsters with their Mystic Weapons, and are also usually equipped with unremovable Mystic armors (which are normally fairly weak) in their gear slots. The [[HalfHumanHybrid Half-Mystic Asellus]] is essentially a human who can train like a human ''and'' use the Mystical Weapons to empower herself, making her a human with [[HybridPower all the advantages of mystics and none of their disadvantages]].

The combination of powers allows her to easily break the stat {{cap}} that almost everyone else has to adhere to; other Mystics can theoretically do this, but it's impractical because their base stats can't improve.

* In ''Webcomic/TheYoungProtector'', a side effect of the mysterious "Grey Working" causes everyone with magical power to [[http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ/ete-ch3-page-51/ go completely insane]]. Spooky Jones, the Protectors' resident spellcaster, shows no signs of this, which ''might'' have something to do with why a {{Demon Lord|sAndArchdevils}} calls him an "[[HorrifyingTheHorror abomination]]".
