* Pretty much true in ''Literature/SuperPowereds'', although [[MindOverMatter telekinetics]] are invariably [[PsychicPowers telepaths]] as well. It's thought that the two are really variations on the same ability. Some powers are more versatile than others. Most Supers are [[VoluntaryShapeshfiting Shifters]], requiring them to switch to their alt-mode in order to use their powers. That alt-mode can be ''anything''. Some are lizards, some turn into themselves with metal skin, some are robots with missile launchers and flying capability. Extremely-powerful elementals are able to take on certain characteristics of their element (e.g. a Super's mastery of electricity also allows him to attain SuperSpeed).

Some Supers don't have a power that is useful in combat, such as Nick, who can manipulate luck (most combat isn't based on luck). However, as shown in ''Year 1'', at full power, even his ability can have devastating results ([[spoiler:when using it to stop a truck on a highway, he manipulates the luck of the vehicle to simultaneously cause half a dozen improbable malfunctions that nearly rip the truck to shreds]]).

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', there appears to be only one of each Devil Fruit, and nobody can have two Devil Fruit powers (except [[spoiler: Blackbeard]]). Averted with Haki, though.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Literature/Outliers}}'' subverts the trope; while the first generation of supers only got the one power (although they tended to be fairly broad to make for it), the second generation often get multiple, including some FlyingBricks.

* ''Film/SkyHigh''. While Nurse Specs mentions that its ''possible'' for the child of two superhumans to inherit ''both'' of their parentsí powers, the implication is that its damned rare, and everyone else's reactions to Will's not only being [[FlyingBrick super-strong but being able to fly]] implies that most people only have one power.

* In ''ShadowOps'', "Latents" (humans who develop magical powers) only develop within one specific "school" of magic. Some of these are limited, i.e. pyromancers can only create fire. Others are impressively diverse, such as terramancers, who can control earth, shape and grow plants, and mind-control animals.

* By the time of ''Literature/TheMistbornAdventures'', the magical bloodlines have diluted such that there are no more Mistborn or Feruchemists: nobody has more than one Allomantic and one Feruchemical power.

Twinborn are those with one of each, and Compounders are Twinborn with matching powers--which, due to a quirk of the magic system, means that they can get more out of their Feruchemy than they put in, breaking the EquivalentExchange and creating an infinite loop. The only Compounder in the first book is Miles Hundredlives, who uses gold to store health and get a HealingFactor that makes Wolverine look like a wimp.
