** The gold rings on Shadow the Hedgehog's wrists act as a limiter. It was barely implied in the games, however in ''VideoGame/SonicX'' he takes them off in certain desperate situations. In the [[Comicbook/SonicTheHedgehog comic]] he takes them off to fight Enerjak, warning the people of New Mobotropolis to "clear the area" and giving Nicole difficulty in maintaining the city.

* The [[TankGoodness M1A1 Abrams MBT]] has a "rev limiter" since it's jet engine ''doesnt have a max speed'' and the thing will catastrophically fail, [[CaptainObvious that is very bad]].

* In ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'', [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke Mewtwo]] was given a mechanical suit of armor due to its uncontrollable and destructive psychic abilities. This is actually played with a bit, as Mewtwo complains that its massive power is being limited, while Gionvanni corrects him in that its not being suppressed, but instead ''focused''.

* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII'''s Oro willingly wears one of his arms in a sling while fighting as to use both would run the risk of killing his opponent due to his sheer power. During one of his [[LimitBreak Super Arts]], however, he removes the arm and beats the crap out of the opponent.

* In ''StarCraft'', the Terran Ghosts go through brutal training to suppress their innate abilities and allow their superiors to keep better control over them. It can be reversed, though; Infested Kerrigan raids a Terran ship to find out how to do it, unlocking the Psionic Storm attack.

** More common are soft power limiters on engine thrust, which go all the way back to WorldWar2. Pilots are often restricted with how much power they are permitted to draw from their engines during normal operating, and can only call upon maximum power (sometimes called Wartime Emergency Power) in an emergency, such as being engaged by enemy forces. This is because using the engine at full power results in significantly more maintenance when the plane lands, so don't try to do this just because you think no one's looking, the maintenance crew will figure it out pretty quick when you land, and even if they don't, you have to break a physical wire seal on the throttle to access it anyhow, and if you don't have a ''damn'' good reason for it expect a ''very'' thorough chewing out ''at the very least''.

** As well, Sol Badguy, from the same series, wears a pseudo-magical headband which suppresses his true nature as a SuperPrototype Gear, a race of magical living weapons of mass destruction, and allows him to retain his sanity. However, this comes at a cost of somewhere in the vicinity of 90% of his power. Given his already amazing battle skill, and his ability to destroy commander-level Gears with minimal effort, his true potental can be rather frightening to consider.

Added DiffLines:

*** Sol admits after that fight that he still didn't go all out, [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity probably again for the sake of his sanity.]]
