Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/CloakAndDagger2018'': Inverted, fitting with the show's themes of duality. Tandy, who runs from every situation and never believes anyone has any good in them, gains light daggers and the ability to see hopes. Tyrone, who attacks first and has trouble understanding how people can be cruel, gains shadow teleportation and the ability to see fears. They even note that if Tyrone had gotten Tandy's daggers he would have already killed someone, and if Tandy had gotten Tyrone's shadows she would be long gone.

* In ''[[Fanfic/RyuugisTheGamesWePlay The Games We Play]]''. this is not outright stated but implied with Adam. At first, all he could do with his Semblance was take in energy and release it as an attack, reflecting how he absorbed his frustration with and hatred of the world and threw it back. He eventually learns to control the absorbed energy, first to buff his sword strikes and then to buff himself directly, reflecting how he changed to absorb the hurt and draw strength from it.

** ''[[PlayingWithFire Fire:]]'' A fire-powered character tend to be assertive, impulsive and hot-headed, like wild fire. When portrayed positively, fire gives out light and warmth, which supports others; when portrayed negatively, fire is an indiscriminate destructive force, with its users being {{Pyromaniac}}s. A popular power for both heroes and [[EvilIsBurningHot villains]] alike.

A popular power for both heroes and [[EvilIsBurningHot villains]] alike. Almost all fire characters tend to be passionate in some way or another, with anger issues being the norm.



** ''[[LightEmUp Light]]'': More often than not, a power for the good people, often exceptionally so, such as TheCape or MessianicArchetype who "light the way" for other people. Still, sometimes you may find that LightIsNotGood; when their use of light has a more modern feel (gleaming sparkles, lasers), they're more neutral and can go either way, but they tend to be as flashy as their light.

Good light aligned characters can be any type of good personality from wise to wisecrackers, while evil ones generally tend to be portrayed as prideful and arrogant.

* A lot of character in the ''My Hero Academia'' quirks are like this. Izuku Midoriya is the biggest super hero fan and super her wannabe ever and gets stock superpower, Katsuki Bakugo is a hot-headed, incredibly hot-tempered bully whose quirk is (basically) explosion, Tenya Iida is a level headed, fast thinking stoic leader whose quirk is engine (basically super speed), Shoto Todoroki is a cold stoic individual who mainly uses his freeze quirk, All Might is a stereotypical symbol of hope superhero who originally had the stock superpower, Mt. Lady is a attention seeker, attention hog whose quirk is growing bigger and Stain an anti-hero was willing to kill to get what he wants quirk revolves around blood.

* A lot of character characters in the ''My Hero Academia'' quirks ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' are like this. this thanks to their Quirks:
**
Izuku Midoriya is the biggest super hero fan and super her hero wannabe ever ever, and gets stock superpower, the standard-ish SuperStrength Quirk One for All.
**
Katsuki Bakugo is a hot-headed, incredibly hot-tempered bully whose quirk Quirk is (basically) explosion, explosion.
**
Tenya Iida is a level headed, fast thinking stoic leader whose quirk Quirk is engine Engine (basically super speed), SuperSpeed).
**
Shoto Todoroki is a cold stoic individual who mainly uses his freeze quirk, Quirk.
**
All Might is a stereotypical symbol of hope superhero who originally had the stock superpower, aforementioned One for All.
**
Mt. Lady is a attention seeker, attention an AttentionWhore and glory hog whose quirk Quirk is growing bigger and Stain an anti-hero was willing to kill to get what bigger
** Stain, a WellIntentionedExtremist villain who kills heroes
he wants quirk deems unworthy, has a Quirk that revolves around blood.blood.
** Yuuga Aoyama's Quirk allows him to fire lasers from his belly. His personality is just as flamboyant and flashy.
** Tooru Hagakure is an inversion of the trope. You'd expect an invisible girl to be a ShrinkingViolet, but Tooru is actually an outgoing GenkiGirl; perhaps in no small part ''because'' she's invisible.

to:

* ''Webcomic/DaughterOfTheLilies'': Margot the [[MakingASplash water mage]] is exceptionally cool and collected for someone who [[spoiler:found a giant demon tearing up the downtown.]]
** Both Master Wu and [[spoiler:Thistle's]] magic glow gold when casting major spells, and they're two of the most morally upright characters in the story, literally following the GoldenRule.

to:

* Each person in ''Literature/TheEggMan'' is born with one of their senses hyper-evolved, and one character claims that each person is shaped by that sense. Thus, Smells are [[NeatFreak fussy and anal-retentive]], Feels are perpetually horny, Tastes end up [[BigEater getting fat]], Sounds are [[TheParanoiac paranoid]] and Sights are [[NosyNeighbor always spying and snooping]].

Added DiffLines:

** Allot of characters goes against this trope as well like Garnet who can generate electricity is a level-headed stoic leader instead of Psycho Electro, Topaz (a fusion between two separate Topazes) uses fusion to capture people but is actually a fusion who just wants to live as a fusion and Aquamarine can (presumably) bend water since she has made water wings (but only water wings so far) and she is a sadistic bitch who takes pride in her line of work which is basically kidnapping.

** PlayedWith: all of the main [[MagicalGirlWarrior Crystal Gems]] have the power to shapeshift, but it's notable that we see goofy [[FunPersonified Amethyst]] use it all the time when ControlFreak [[TheSmartGuy Pearl]] never does. More subtly, Pearl has trained herself to be a MagicKnight proficient with a sword because, by her own admission, [[ServantRace her subspecies of Gem]] [[WeakButSkilled aren't really designed for fighting]].
