* Similar to Jean Grey, in the post-[[CosmicRetcon Zero Hour]] ''ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}'', blocks were put on the higher levels of Saturn Girl's telepathy when she was a child. When the blocks came off years later, she started using her powers without realizing it.
* Albert Cranston in ''ComicBook/PS238'' is implied, early on, to have one of these around his head. Apparently they limit his (apparent) telekinetic abilities to a level where he is barely able to press a keyboard button with his mind, and it seems that he is keeping the fact that he is even able to do this a secret from the remaining staff, implying it was meant to be a PowerNullifier.

* ComicBook/TheSpectre's power is severely limited when sealed in a mortal host. The Spectre still has near-omnipotent power but can only use it to punish murderers (and not every murderer at that). During the Day of Vengeance event the Spectre was between hosts and fell prey to Eclipso's manipulations and decided that magic was an affront to the Presence's will and had to be destroyed. The Spectre declared war on all magic in the universe. And pretty much won. Without anything holding him back, the Spectre [[BalefulPolymorph turned Phantom Stranger into a mouse]], forced Blaze and Satanus to flee for their lives, kicked a souped up Captain Marvel's ass, killed Shazam in the place where he was strongest, and killed all of the Lords of Order and Chaos. Unfortunately for the Spectre that last one was the final straw for the Presence. The Presence promptly demonstrated the difference between near-omnipotent and truly omnipotent power by sealing the Spectre into his new host.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' introduces Type:Null, an artificial AnimalisticAbomination who was originally supposed to be able to change it's type using 'Memory Discs'. Unfortunately, its body rejected the memories and its immense power, so it was given a stone/metal power limiting mask to keep it from self-destructing. Although once it it trained and gains full trust with a trainer, it can ditch the mask and evolve into Silvally, now capable of handling its power.

* In ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}'' there's a special medicine known as "Seven Day Ointment", which keeps a person's eyes forcibly closed during a week. Since this is a story with extremely powerful ninjas, if anyone gets a dose of this to the eyes, they're ''severely'' limited - and double if their superpowers '''involve their eyes'''. [[spoiler: Gennosuke, whose power is basically a '''literal''' DeathGlare, has a dose of it thrown at him and spends quite a bit of the story as a HandicappedBadass. On the other hand his girlfriend Oboro, whose own powers involve [[PowerNullifier neutralizing ninja powers with her own glate]], willingly seals her eyes with the ointment after she accidentally uses her skills against one of her clansmates.]]

** When Ichigo first encounters the true form of [[PetalPower Senbonzakura]], [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Senkei]], he realises that being [[DeathInAllDirections surrounded on all sides]] by thousands of swords puts him in a very bad position. Byakuya [[FlechetteStorm guesses what he's thinking]] and tells him not to be concerned. Apparently Byakuya once made a [[PillarsOfMoralCharacter vow]] to only ever use Senkei on someone he intended to kill [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy with his own two hands]]. As a result, he can't maximize the [[StormOfBlades potential]] of his bankai's [[DeathByAThousandCuts thousands of swords]] because he can only wield the blades [[HonorBeforeReason one or two at a time]] from the palms of his hands.

It's only been seen once (as Bleach ended), but we can assume he would go back to limiting his power after the Quincies are defeated.]]

** Rock Lee from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. He jumps on top of a structure and takes off his leg weights, prompting those watching to remark on the futility of casting them off. Lee then tosses them aside, where they land with a thunderous ground-cracking slam while he takes off, showing that he has more than doubled his already-remarkable speed.

** When Yumichika releases his sword it rather uselessly splits from one to four blades. Then it's revealed this is a fake shikai and he is hiding his sword's true abilities. He deliberately calls his sword by [[EmbarrassingNickname a nickname it hates]] to piss it off and make it refuse to help him. When he calls it by its [[SayIt proper name]], it releases its true form: a snaking mass of unbreakable flower vines that [[EnergyAbsorption drains]] an opponent to death. His fake shikai gives him no abilities, forcing him to fight with [[{{Determinator}} only base skill and resolve]]. However, his real shikai is so powerful that he's achieved a [[CurbStompBattle single-strike victory]] every time he's used it. The reason he won't use it is the same reason Ikkaku won't use his bankai: he wants to stay in his squad (the same squad as Ikkaku, even). Squad 11 consists entirely of {{Blood Knight}}s who value only physical strength and think kido is for pussies. As Yumichika's real shikai is a kido-type it would get him kicked out of the squad.

* While pretty common in Sports anime in general, ''Manga/YowamushiPedal'' goes all out with this trope. The main character, from the very very beginning, is constantly under limiters and that is in fact the *only reason* he isn't already Inter-High level. Throughout the show, it's far less him getting stronger and far more his teammates just removing his limiters one at a time and watching him go from mediocre to incredible just from that.

** Ikkaku possesses bankai but hides it. Even when he finally enters bankai, he doesn't power straight into its full form the way the others do. He first has to re-engage the fight with the active, but weakly powered, bankai until he makes a first cut. Only then does it "awaken". Once the dragon crest on the highest blade turns fully red, Ikkaku finally is able to wield his weapon at full strength.

* Alucard from ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' uses the "Control Art Restriction System", which divides his powers into six levels, with Five as his weakest and Zero his strongest. Considering how ridiculously overpowered he is, enemies tend not to be [[BloodKnight worthy enough]] to have him unlock any levels. When he reaches Level Zero, [[strike:''run'']] kill yourself. Fortunately, he can't go full-power on his own accord - full release requires approval from Integra Helsing. Mostly. When under threat, he can release a few restrictions until the threat is destroyed.

At one point, when she's been pushed to utter exhaustion, her friends force her to wear her mother's Sixth Sense Blocking Spectacles, which prevent her from seeing (and even hearing) ghosts, giving her a much-needed reprieve.
