* All wizards in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', can permanently learn another person's spell [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1947 just by observing it in action enough times]]. Since learned spells appear in their owner's spellbook as additional pages and are described in detail, wizards who keep up with their spellbooks can potentially use such spells at least as effectively as the original owners can if not more.

** One of Ellen's spells is to copy the form of something else. At first this only appears to be transformation-based (copying a cat lets her turn into a cat), but eventually she tries copying Nanase's uber-powerful Guardian form. Not only does she gain Nanase's appearance, but she gains all the powers of the Guardian form along with it.

** One minor character has the ability to become the master of any activity he sees being performed. This doesn't encompass powers, but it does let him, say, become proficient in the melee fighting style of his opponent. And be better at it.

** In [[Literature/Ward the sequel]], we meet Spright, who can copy any one power near him, though for people with multiple powers he can only take one. It works best with Mover powers, where he can get a sense of how they work before using them, and Changer powers, where he can keep the form for several minutes even after dropping the power to take another.

* Fetch in ''Literature/HereticalEdge'' can target a person to gain their appearance, skills, and powers, although he can only copy one person at a time. He generally uses this power for KillAndReplace shenanigans. [[spoiler:After Avalon kills him while he was impersonating Paul Calburn, she gains a weaker form of this ability, able to copy either a specific talent or power she knows of or a random one; she can only copy one power or skill at a time, the copy only lasts a few minutes, and she cannot copy any one person more than once per day.
