* Disney's Moana provides the current page quote, sung during Tamatoa's VillainSong. Maui's finally retrieved his mythical fishhook, the source of all his magical powers, and is fully prepared to go to town on the narcissistic crab... but when he tries to transform, a thousand years of being out of practice rears its head, and he's soundly thrashed (in front of Moana's eyes, no less, after constantly bragging to her about his legendary strength). And for a demigod that ''thrives'' on human adoration [[spoiler: and has a severe InferioritySuperiorityComplex and considers himself worthless without his magic powers]], it's more than enough to cause some serious PowerIncontinence.

* During ''Film/SpiderMan2'', Peter Parker loses his powers because he is unconsciously conflicted about whether or not to continue being Spider-Man. Given the [[FreudWasRight suggestive]] nature of his powers, the whole thing [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything looks a lot like]] a man struggling with stress-related [[TheLoinsSleepTonight impotence]]. (With the webs being made from a sticky fluid coming out of his body, the parallel is even stronger.) This plot element may have been suggested by a similar plot point in 1964's ''Amazing Spider-Man Annual'' #1.

** Kanan's HeroicBSOD between seasons 2 and 3 severely limited his ability to sense things through the Force, to the point where he couldn't even tell his own padawan was in danger until he broke out of it.

* When Wally West became ComicBook/TheFlash he was rife with HeroicSelfDeprecation. Never being able to see himself living up to his late mentor Barry Allen's legacy, he was haunted by the nightmares of Barry being ashamed of him. As a result, he mentally limited himself to speed of sound for a long time. After the famous ''The Return of Barry Allen'' story, he was finally able to make peace with himself and eventually surpassed all of [[SurpassedTheTeacher Barry's benchmarks]].

* In ''Manga/{Bleach}'', the usable strength of a spirit is of course affected by their mental state. Doubt and fear tend to limit how much spirit energy can be released, worst case scenario being a complete shutdown. For example, Ichigo's massive insecurity over the Hollow nature of his soul's power weakened him for an entire arc, so much that his Hollow mask would outright fail to release at times.

* [[KidHero Ezra Bridger]] of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' had this happen to him in his backstory. He has abnormally strong empathic abilities, even for a Jedi, but after losing his parents and being abandoned he emotionally shut down. It isn't until he bonds with his new family and forgives the person who abandoned him that he regains it.
