* According to ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'', those damned for heresy are gifted with vision of Earth's future. The catch is that they can ''only'' see the future and not the present or the past, meaning that when the Apocalypse comes and all souls enter Heaven or Hell, they will be have knowledge of nothing.nothing but their torment.

* Saiki of ''Anime/TheDisasterousLifeOfSaikiK'' has numerous psychic powers, but does not have full control of several of them. His Telepathy causes him to have to constantly listen to others' thoughts within a 200 meter range, although this can be turned off by touching the element germanium, so he can't enjoy going to movie theatres because he will hear spoilers from the people around him. He cannot turn off his XRayVision, so he constantly sees the insides of everyone. His eyes [[TakenForGranite turn people to stone]] if he isn't wearing his glasses. His ability to mind control people into [[WeirdnessCensor believing abnormal things are abnormal]] causes a uncontrollable chain reaction that results in reality changing so that it really is normal. He does not have full control of his SuperStrength, which makes it difficult for him to do things like throw a ball at somebody without killing them unless he throws it with almost no force at all. His {{Psychometery}} also can't be turned off so he wears transparent gloves at all time so he doesn't have to see the past of everything he touches. And if either of the devices on his head are removed his powers go out of control and could destroy the planet.
** 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 can can't stop seeing and hearing either.

* Power Incontinence is the whole premise driving ''TheGreatestAmericanHero''. It's somewhat self-inflicted: the aliens who gave Ralph Hinkley his power-giving super suit also gave him the instruction manual for it, but he promptly lost it (because this is a comedy and [[HilarityEnsues hilarity must ensue]]). And when he got another copy of the manual, he almost immediately ''lost it again'' trying out one of the powers described. HilarityEnsues as he and his FBI agent side-kick make attempts to determine how to activate the suit's various abilities while fighting crime.

** The protagonist of the story, Izuku Midoriya, also has a version of this problem. He can turn his SuperStrength on and off at will, but he initially has no control at all over how strong it is so it is only either turned off, or on at maximum power, which severely damages whatever part of his body he used his SuperStrength with.

* Characters in ''Podcast/RollToBreathe'' can lose control of their powers if injured enough. This happens a lot to Lightningrod, Davey Doomzone, and [[spoiler: post-Max Machine Black Cavalier]], who all get blamed considerably and lose a lot of self-esteem for the damage they cause.
