* The [[PsychicPowers Adepts]] of the Sumeragi Group in ''VideoGame/AzureStrikerGunvolt'' are kept under control through the use of Glaives that contain their extracted septisome, the physical source of their powers. By merging with them in a process similar to the [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Arrancar with their zanpakuto]], they can regain access to their powers [[AmplifierArtifact and then some]] and they can summon them remotely from the Sumeragi Headquarters when needed for combat. [[BigBad Nova]] takes the cake, however, in that he's so strong that he needed ''three'' of these Glaives to restrict his power (most need only one)...and even then he's strong enough that he can rival the power of his strongest underlings when they've ''released'' their Glaive. [[OneWingedAngel His fully-released form]] is compared to [[AGodAmI a god more than a man by both himself and others]].

* Parodied twice in ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei''. In one instance, Harumi's glasses are revealed to have a tremendous weight and prevent her from exercising her full athletic potential (and she's an amazing athlete with the glasses on). The terminology used to describe them is a ShoutOut to the RestrainingBolt for mecha in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. On another occasion, Nozomu is challenged by Lee Nakanao who is a parody of the stock Rival/ WorthyOpponent of shounen fighting anime. Lee is a white haired {{Bishonen}} with an EyepatchOfPower, and when providing stats on him, the manga indicates that the eyepatch restrains his full power and he'd go berserk if he removed it.

* In the ''Literature/{{Ravenor}}'' books, Wystan Frauka, has a power limiter which can turn off his psychic blanking effect. Which is handy, when the hero is a powerful psychic...



* Imperial Guard Sanctioned Psykers from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' have augmetic dampers implanted to reduce the potency of their powers.
** Similarly, Wystan Frauka, Literature/{{Ravenor}}'s Blank, has a power limiter which can turn off his psychic blanking effect. Which is handy, when the hero is a powerful psychic...
** The Animus Speculum worn by Culexus Assassins are designed to absorb and contain the anti-soul energies of the Blanks that wear them. This is so that the Assassins can operate within normal people without causing them to experience a violent case of UncannyValley. Unlike other examples though, it can fire this stored energy when the eye opens, turning it into a localized negative space wedgie that ''tears your soul from your body''.

* *Creator/GamesWorkshop games:
** In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'' and ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', the Chaos God Tzeentch created the Blue Scribes to collect every spell and psychic power in existence. Knowing the [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder mentality of his followers]] however, Architect of Fate altered the Scribes to ensure that they couldn't effectively use the knowledge they acquire. P'tarix can transcribe the spells they find, but can't read. Xirat'p, on the other hand, can read his brother's writing, but can't understand it. They're also both Blue Horrors so that they would eternally be at each other's throats (as well as being dumber than two halves of a peanut), never getting the idea that they could work together to utilize the power they hold effectively.

** 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.
