Compare StatusBuff, PowerUpMagnet. If the powerup isn't very useful, see PowerUpLetDown. Contrast PoisonMushroom, a [[InvertedTrope power-down]].

A common trait among powerups is that you often don't need to do anything other than touch it to gain its benefit. Fly your fighter into the floating container of radioactive materials (''VideoGame/RaptorCallOfTheShadows''), send the chopper into a bomb pod (''VideoGame/TwinCobra''), and they just get installed or deposited instantly. Usually an [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality Acceptable Break From Reality]] since no-one really wants to fly out of a dogfight to spend some quality time in a hangar with a wrench installing a missile pod--and dealing with the damage from ramming it into the fuselage to catch it at mach 50.

50. When a common powerup is used to increase the player's weapon level or something, collecting more of it after reaching maximum level often results in ScoringPoints instead.
