** 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 recover swiftly, though.
** Later, Rarity is creating a gem-like DeflectorShield around against Gaea Everfree's assault. She quickly realizes she can't hold the hostile plant life indefinitely, and when her shield finally shatters she faints in Applejack's arms.

* ''[[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 ''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.]]

* 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.

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.
