** Chapter 168 reveals that Aoyama's Navel Laser can leak out if there's not a lens to keep it under control. In addition, his body is ill-suited to his Quirk, and when his stomach is crushed by the laser... let's just say that the "incontinence" part of this trope is quite literal.

** His ability to mind control people into [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight believing abnormal things are abnormal]] causes an uncontrollable chain reaction that results in [[RealityWarping reality changing]] so that the changed beliefs become true. [[RealityWarpingIsNotAToy That is why he rarely uses that power.]]

** Reita cannot turn off his ability to see and hear ghosts, and this can be a problem for him because he has trouble telling the difference between ghosts and living humans. Saiki also is able to see just one ghost which he can can't stop seeing and hearing either.

* Tracer from VideoGame/Overwatch suffers this. Tracer is UnstuckInTime and needs her chronal accelerator to stay in the present timeline. Without it, she'll glitch out from the timeline and disappear (as seen in the Doomfist Origins Trailer when Doomfist destroyed it).

* ''Franchise/SherlockHolmes'': The SherlockScan is, at times, presented like this and best demonstrated in the [[Film/SherlockHolmes 2009 film]] when Holmes is doing dinner with Watson and his fiancee Mary Morsten. He is constantly bombarded by voices and unremarkable details of his surroundings filling his mind and can do nothing to silence it besides focus on Mary and attempt to scan her (once he [[spoiler:offends her and drives away both of his guests]] the bedlam of voices returns). Could be interpreted as an AmbiguousDisorder.

** ComicBook/{{Magneto}}'s powers are in a near-perpetual state of PowerCreepPowerSeep, with various reasons and excuses furnished depending on the storyline to justify him being as StrongAsTheyNeedToBe in any particular story. Said powers were also eventually established as playing havoc with his mental stability (overlapping into WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity) as a {{Retcon}} to explain away his years of being a CardCarryingVillain.

** In his "100% Power" state on Namek, Frieza cannot control his power completely. Not only does it cause him to lose stamina at a rapid pace, it also causes Frieza to become far more furious and strained compared to his [[FauxAffablyEvil usual sophisticated behaviour]]. His GoldenSuperMode in ''Resurrection F'' and ''Super'' has the same weakness. It's implied that he could learn to control his power better through training, but Frieza has no patience for that, [[spoiler:and in fact he only starts doing that after he dies ''again'' and has nothing better to do in hell...which starts from his daydreams of murdering Goku]].

GoldenSuperMode in from ''Resurrection F'' and ''Super'' has the same weakness. It's implied problem; as powerful as it is, it practically bleeds stamina and ends up wearing off before he can do anything.

** There's a downplayed version with Medaka's Abnormality, which allows her to copy and perfect other peoples' powers. When the Student Council comes up against an opponent whose "power" is higher-than-normal killing intent, Medaka's brother Maguro intervenes and keeps her from fighting, saying that she would end up copying his killing intent and turn into an unstoppable psychopath.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Harry develop this with his intermittently manifesting Asgardian SuperStrength meaning that he lives in fear of some day shaking someone's hand and [[{{Fingore}} squashing the bones within to powder]] and his PsychicPowers being potentially incredibly powerful due to the fact that [[spoiler: Jean Grey's a maternal cousin of his]]. All they generally do, however, is sometimes give psychically sensitive people around him a PsychicNosebleed or, if he tries to use his [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]] and his focus slips, he's likely to end up breaking whatever he's holding.

Thankfully, he gets better with practice, but still has to keep himself in control-because when he doesn't, things get bad. ''Very'' bad.
