* In ''TheCyantianChronicles'', the first time Darrik's [[EnergyBall energy manipulation abilities]] activate, [[http://cyantian.net/akaelae/2009/01/26/01262009/ he tosses]] [[http://cyantian.net/akaelae/2009/01/28/01282009/ a horse]]. It uses so much of he energy that he is left [[http://cyantian.net/akaelae/2009/01/30/01302009/ nearly unconscious]].

* 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.

* Alaric Morgan is apt to do this, since he's a bit of an overachiever and {{Deryni}} [[PowerAtAPrice powers are physically taxing to use]]. In ''High Deryni'', Morgan tries to contact Derry mentally (sending a Call) during the reconciliation service for himself and Duncan and faints from the effort; Duncan makes the excuse that his cousin isn't used to fasting. He also collapses from overextending himself to Call on campaign in ''The King's Justice'', and Kelson scolds him for pushing himself too hard.

* In the ''Literature/DresdenFiles'' books, wizards feel fatigue when they use a lot of magic. Pushed too far, it certainly can cause a blackout.

** Invoked and played for laughs in ''If Rainbow Dash Can't Sleep...'' Given that, even when well rested and fed, performing the Sonic Rainboom leaved her seriously drained; Rainbow Dash reasons that doing so in her current exhausted state would be an excellent insomnia cure. While it worked, leaving her out like the proverbial light, doing so at 3 A. M. directly above Ponyville....

** A far more serious occurrence is seen (and more referenced) in ''Goosed'', when Fluttershy tries to drive off a flock of Crystal Geese with The Stare and collapses. Spike is capable of instantly organizing treatment[[note]](and prone to verbally tear a strip off of Applejack for asking this of the already fatigued Fluttershy to begin with)[[/note]] because Twilight Sparkle has done this fairly often since fillyhood, forcing him to learn how to stabilize ponies suffering from magical over-exertion or watch his sister die.

* In ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', Ash and his Greninja [[spoiler:have access to an unique SuperMode through synchronizing with each other. However, using the form proves to be very exhausting for Ash, and all the damage Greninja takes Ash feels as well. This eventually reaches it's logical conclusion during Ash's rematch with Alain, where Ash ''passes out'' in the midst of battle. While he was winning.]]

It is eventually revealed that Ash and Greninja have this problem because they don't fully trust eachother yet. After overcoming a shared HeroicBSOD and making amends, they iron this flaw out, although Ash and Greninja still share eachothers pain, albeit on a more downplayed level.]]

* Happens frequently to seers and to the [[GodEmperor royals]] in TalesOfTheBranionRealm -- when you've literally just exploded into flames, it takes a lot out of you. Leads to PostVictoryCollapse in some cases.
