* Played interestingly in ''SoonIWillBeInvincible''. Feral, either an uplifted big cat or other form of result of gene splicing, is brutal and violent and hides pain from others, while WordOfGod says he's gay. Fatale is a cyborg heavy-hitter, and is analytic but slow at getting abstract connections and skeptical about magic. Mr. Mystic is a poor performing magician with access to the real stuff, tends to be a creepy and withdrawn from normal society. Another character with ChronicBackstabbingDisorder is so transparent as to be invisible.

** The first story arc's BigBad has powers over aether, the legendary FifthElement. We see that aether is an extremely powerful weapon, but it is something of an AllOrNothing ability with little use outside combat or destruction. Aether's wielder is impatient, greedy and insane, with little capacity for fine control and an unchecked ego. This instance too is justified- it's implied that, in this case, the experiment gave the person so much power that it wrecked [[spoiler:his]] sanity.

** It was a plot point that gamma mutants like the Hulk have transformations directly linked to their mental state. In the case of the Hulk, his transformation is linked to Banner's repressed anger issues combined with multiple personality disorder. His cousin, Jen Walters, was a meek, sexually repressed woman, but as SheHulk she becomes the ideal woman; strong, independent, beautiful, and sexually liberated. Doc Samson's transformation was based on a repressed desire to be a hero. Sam Sterns was a bit of a moron who envied the smarter people he worked around, and he became the Leader, one of (if not the) smartest people in the MarvelUniverse. Emil Blonsky was filled with self loathing, and he became the Abomination. The general powers of these individuals are mostly the same (except for the Leader), but the manifestation varies widely based on the personality of the person being affected by gamma.

* To a certain extent, the girls of ''{{Manga/Mai-HiME}}'' exhibit PersonalityPowers, not all of which are elemental. Of the main PowerTrio, hot-blooded {{Determinator}} Mai fights with fire; while her cold, no-nonsense [[TheLancer sidekick]] and [[TheRival rival]] Natsuki utilizes ice attacks. Mikoto, who is considerably smaller than both girls but [[MoreThanMeetsTheEye deceptively strong]], simply slashes through her foes with a [[{{BFS}} sword much larger than she is]].

** ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'': The SuperSoldier Serum always grants enhanced strength, but its other effects are extrapolations of what the recipient is like; "good becomes great, bad becomes worse". After seeing what the prototype serum did to the RedSkull, Doctor Erskine refuses to give the serum to a candidate who is in much better shape than Steve Rogers, but is also a bully.

** Thunderbolt Ross hunted the Hulk for years but secretly envied and coveted the Hulk's power all that time. So it's no surprise that his mutated RedHulk form looks almost exactly like the big green guy except for the coloring.

* 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.
