* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsLegendOfEverfree'':
** The first time she uses her telekinesis voluntarily, to move a large boulder, Twilight Sparkle manages but faints and is caught by Sunset Shimmer. She recovers swiftly, though.
** Later, Rarity is creating a gem-like DeflectorShield around the group against Gaea Everfree's assault. She quickly realizes she can't hold the hostile plant life at bay indefinitely, and when her shield finally shatters she faints in Applejack's arms.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'':
** At the climax of the first movie, the Magic of Friendship saves the day -- but it's still straining for the human girls who wield it. [[spoiler:After dispelling Sunset Shimmer's demonic transformation and mind-control magic, the six protagonists are seen lying on the floor, looking drained. Twilight Sparkle even seems unconscious for a few seconds until Spike licks her face.]]

* ''[[Manga/DragonBall Dragon Ball Z]]'': When Gohan first goes [=SSJ2=] he triggers it for only a second and then passes out. This was seen in one of Goku's flashbacks of their training in the time chamber and was the moment that convinced him that Gohan could beat Cell if he could sustain that power, which he did.

* Over using spells in ''LightNovel/{{Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon}}'' will drain the caster's mind until they suffer "Mind Zero" and pass out. This happens to Bell after he learns Fire Bolt and casts it one too many times, and has to be saved by Aiz again. He learns to be more conservative afterwards.

* During one of the Literature/NewJediOrder novels, Luke Skywalker uses the Force to telekinetically manipulate the point singularity a [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Yuuzhan Vong]] war [[BiologicalTechnology creature]] uses for DeflectorShields. Though he's successful in disabling the enemy, he almost passes out ''in his starfighter''. Later on, Kyp Durron replicates the technique and, as he's better with manipulating lots of Force energy at once, ends up "merely" completely exhausted.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''; in the OriginsEpisode, Wan's first attempt at merging with Raava and using all four elements burns though his energy rather quickly and causes him to pass out. Once he fully fuses with her and becomes the Avatar, he doesn't have this problem any more.
* Niko of ''[[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers Galaxy Rangers]]'' will occasionally overtax herself, draining her implant and her natural abilities and end up knocked out or barely conscious for a while. The upside is that if it gets to that point, she's probably just saved everyone's ass with it.

* In ''{{Spacetrawler}}'', Eebs (or humans like Yuri with Eeb brain implants) will black out if they strain their telekinesis by moving objects that are too massive. Too much of this strain can outright kill them. [[spoiler:It's later revealed that this limitation is a result of brain-clamping--we've yet to see an upper limit on how much matter an unclamped Eeb can move telekinetically.]]
* In ''{{Drowtales}}'', it's possible to blackout from overuse of mana. It actually happened to a weaker student in chapter 2. In later chapters Ariel and Chirinide exert themselves enough to become woozy after battle. Those who are more proficient in the mana arts are capable of killing themselves through exertion.
