* In ''Literature/SuperPowereds'', a small percentage of people have super powers of some sort. However, only a quarter of those are able to control their abilities. Those who can are called Supers and can apply for a Hero license (which allows them to engage in vigilante justice and provides HeroInsurance). Those who can't are called Powereds and are looked down upon by both normal humans and Supers. While some Powereds only inconvenience themselves (e.g. a girl who levitates when excited or a guy who teleports randomly when sneezing), others can be dangerous to others (e.g. a guy who can accidentally cause a state-wide blackout or a guy who affects probabilities around him, which can either result in a lottery win or a boiler explosion). The main characters are former Powereds, who have been granted control over their abilities through an experimental procedure.

** At the start of Z, Gohan had great power that far surpasses his father. However, he had no control of it. It only awakenings when he's mad. Even after training with Piccolo, Gohan's true power is tied to his emotional state. He didn't gain control of it until he becomes a Super Saiyan 2 during the Cell Games.
** Goku some times have this problem after gaining a lot of power. [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength He break things around him and hurts his friends by accident]]. He tends to controls himself better when he's in battle, however.

** After recklessly combining the Kaio-ken with the Super Saiyan God state, Goku loses control of his ki for several days. Apparently it's a reaction to his body having been overstressed. He has to force himself to stop training and relax during this time, since whenever he tried using his ki he did things like teleport uncontrollably and blow up his house.

* Minki the Oni from ''Manga/HellTeacherNube'' has incredibly destructive powers... which she loses control of and end up [[HoistByHisOwnPetard backfiring]] when she's not wearing her, um, panties.\\

Played WAY more seriously when [[spoiler: in a fixed day, Nube loses a good part of his control over his Devil Hand where a powerful demon is fixed. (Said demon is Bakki, Minki's older brother). This means ''[[BodyHorror his whole arm and then half his body begin mutating]]''. If not for Tamamo, Kyouko and Hiroshi's efforts, [[SuperPowerMeltdown he would've been completely consumed by Bakki]].]]

** Hulk villain Emil Blonsky aka the Abomination. He follows this trope in a different manner. While he has full control of himself, he cannot change back to his human form. His gamma powers are always active. Since his transformation is fueled by his own self-loathing, that really says a lot about Blonsky.

* Franklin Richards, the pre-teen son of Reed and Sue Richards of the ComicBook/FantasticFour. His mutant reality warping powers are practically without limit; he was the one who created the ''Heroes Reborn'' universe that saved Franchise/TheAvengers and the Fantastic Four from dying at the hands of Onslaught. However, he rarely has any control of his powers at all. Things... Just seem to happen.

** Ben Grimm is the only member of the Four who cannot turn off his powers without the use of occasional one-off phlebotinum. He's ''always'' in his rock-man form.

** Scott Summers / Cyclops can't control his EyeBeams when they start manifesting in ''Film/XMenApocalypse''. He has to be blindfolded until he is brought to the Xavier Institute, as his eyes won't stop shooting beams. There Hank McCoy / Beast creates special filter goggles for him, enabling him to control his beams.

** In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Alex Summers can emit powerful energy blasts, but he can't control their direction. This problem is solved by a special harness, which he even refers to as his "energy diaper" in a deleted scene.

* ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 3'' has this as a side effect of using [[SuperMode Hyper Mode]]. Sometimes the power meter starts charging on its own, causing a NonStandardGameOver if it fills. While the usual "treatment" is an UnstoppableRage, Samus can opt for ATeamFiring if there are no targets nearby.
* The Carson Extreme Hot Rod in ''[[VideoGame/{{Burnout}} Burnout Paradise]]''. Infinite boost is a pretty sweet deal... too bad there's no way to turn it off. If you can master it, though, it's one of the fastest and most fun cars in the game.

** One episode introduced an alternate version of Red Star, essentially the Soviet Captain America, and a crapload more powerful. Problems arose when it was revealed that his body periodically discharges a highly corrosive and dangerous plasma like substance. In a true TearJerker moment, Red Star was revealed to have lived in exile his whole life in a compound built to contain him after he accidentally destroyed half of his hometown.
