* Each witch from ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' possesses a unique "active power" in addition to their basic powers of spell-casting, potion-brewing and scrying. They can range from telekinesis, creating fire, super speed and even invisibility. The Charmed Ones are an exception as they all start with one power and naturally gain new ones as they advance.

* The eponymous ''Literature/{{ChildrenOfTheRedKing}}'' usually have only one 'endowment' each. A few characters have been shown to have two; only one person seems to have had more than that.

** It's possible for people to gain more than one quirk through unnatural means, however since the human body is not designed to handle this, this comes with severe medical side effects, usually insanity, physical mutations, or mental retardation. The only two people who are the exceptions to this are [[All for One and his unnamed younger brother, the former because his quirk specifically allows him to do this, and the latter was implied to just be lucky.]] It's implied that if someone with a quirk inherits One for All, they will either be able to wield their quirk along with One for All, or One for All will assimilate their other quirk.

* It's stated in ''Manga/BokuNoHeroAcademia'' that humans can only be born with one power (called quirks), however characters like Todoroki can have multiple facets of their quirk (in his case, he has [[PlayingWithFire fire]] and [[AnIcePerson ice]] powers). The concept of someone gaining multiple quirks is a running plot device.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''

* The Espers from ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' and its spin-off ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'' always only have one power but the versatility of this power can vary. Electromasters control electromagnetism which allows for LightningCanDoAnything but Meltdowner essentially creates plasma and is mainly only useful for destructive purposes. The absolute king of this is Accelerator, whose Vector Control can do literally ''anything'' that involves movement, from stopping bullets to '''slowing the planet's rotation by borrowing some of its kinetic energy for a MegatonPunch'''.

** Well, ''almost'' everyone...
''Anime/TigerAndBunny's'' heroes all have different powers, and it's considered surprising when Barnaby is introduced with exactly the same power as Wild Tiger. However, another NEXT having the same or similar powers is a known phenomenon. Wild Tiger was inspired as a boy by a hero who had the same power he did and nobody makes anything if out when his daughter initially seems to develop the same power.
* In ''Manga/AliceAndZoroku'', those who possess the "Dreams of Alice" are {{Reality Warper}}s whose power is themed around a certain "Card", allowing for varying versatility. One of a pair of twins creates a simple bow and arrow while her sister can create anything with a chain, ranging from actual chains to bicycles to wrecking balls.
