original example wasn't the character's own power causing the strain; replaced with something that fits
* In ''Anime/YuGiOh'', Yugi is strained while dueling in a Shadow Game with Pegasus. Yugi faints, and Yami is forced to take over.
to:
* In ''Anime/YuGiOh'', the Capsule Monsters arc has 'duel armour'. After the first battle with it Yami collapses, and in the subsequent episode Yugi is strained while dueling in a Shadow Game with Pegasus. Yugi faints, and Yami is forced still feeling the effects. This lessens as the series goes on, but also happens to take over. Joey.

* ''VisionOfEscaflowne'': Hitomi's ability to see into the future, via Tarot Cards, often has this effect on her afterwards. It's eventually revealed that both the duration and the severity of her fainting spells is determined by her emotional state. Meaning, the greater her anxiety, the greater its toll on her following her vision; not to mention the part about [[spoiler: her anxiety making those visions come true!]]

This is especially true when the character uses a power for the first time because they might overdo it due to inexperience. Presumably, the strain of using it is too much for him, causing his mind to shut down in self defense.
