** 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.

* 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.

* In the universe of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', every pony, Unicorn, Pegasus, and Earth, has a "special talent" that grants them anything from a proficiency in a fairly mundane task such as making other ponies happy to legitimate superpowers such as supersonic flight or the ability to easily use any form of magic.

A fairly common subtype of settings with a MassSuperEmpoweringEvent in the backstory. Each superpowered person gets one power. Some powers are [[SemanticSuperpower more versatile]] [[SwissArmySuperpower than others]], of course. The ''only'' exceptions are people whose one superpower is the power to copy or steal powers. ''Nobody'' gets ComboPlatterPowers as a default.

* 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]]).
This list shows the last 10 events of 59. Show all.
