* An example of the second kind appears in ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'' in the form of the godlike [[TheFlash Flash]], who is so fast that he ''pulls the narrator into the story''.

* Marvel's ''ComicBook/PowerPack'', a team of four children and then teenage heroes with four different superpowers, have [[PowersAsPrograms swapped them all around]], at least twice. The eldest, Alex, even used to swipe his siblings' powers for jaunts with the ComicBook/NewWarriors. Check out TheOtherWiki for who's had what.

*Another "Get our powers back after M-Day" tactic was to use [[ComicBook/TheInhumans Terrigen Mist]]. It usually gave you your original power, but in a warped (and usually temporary) manner. Former SuperSpeed user Quicksilver could vibrate his molecules faster than the speed of light, becoming able to travel through time. He also had a few MesACrowd moments by going through the same fight multiple times. His old powers eventually returned (Apparently, when EpiphanyTherapy makes you go from your new AntiVillain self to your old KnightInSourArmor self, you also snap back to the powers had in the old days...)

** Many Marvel Mutant characters have gotten what was called in-universe a "''Secondary Mutation''", and pretty much all of them qualify. Though this actually started out as making deliberate use of RequiredSecondaryPowers (this is what makes many former WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway cases considerably more badass than they used to be) but eventually bled over into being purely this trope, as powers having nothing to do with the character's original power would just... show up.

However, Emma Frost's diamond skin thing proved not to be one; Professor X's EvilTwin Cassandra Nova had altered her as part of a scheme.



* All of the former mutants who [[PlotTumor lost their powers on M-Day]] and joined the latest iteration of the ComicBook/NewWarriors got one of these. ComicBook/{{Jubilee}}, who originally had the power to produce explosive balls of light, gained super strength through advanced technology. Chamber, whose psionic powers kept him alive, ended up gaining sonic manipulation. And so on and so forth.

Some of these. them were, though (for example, Beak was a non-superhero X-student with all the drawbacks to birdlike physiology (hollow bones + supervillain NoHoldsBarredBeatdown = ouch.) with none of the benefits (he still can't fly.) He gets depowered, but as a New Warrior has a flight pack that makes him the poor man's Falcon. However, for the other members: ComicBook/{{Jubilee}}, who originally had the power to produce explosive balls of light, gained super strength through advanced technology.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' this is the lore reason for the existence of things like the Elder Kraken and Blizzard Behemoth. When monsters are exposed to large amounts of Minkowski radiation they undergo mutations that alter their powers. Sometimes it's just an addition to existing abilities but usually it completely replaces them with something new.

* This is called "having a radiation accident" in ''{{Champions}}''. It is suggested that if a player is dissatisfied with their character somehow, or bored with it, or even perhaps they just want to try something new, that the GameMaster allow them to completely rewrite it after roleplaying a suitably bizarre reason for the change.
* TabletopGame/CosmicEncounter has several cards and effects that can completely change your alien power, such as the Sorcerer and Reincarnator wild flares (the latter of which does it for ''everyone''.)

* Franchise/{{Superman}} was temporarily reimagined in the 1990s as an [[EnergyBeings energy being]] made of living lightning.
** This is actually a shoutout to a much older, non-canon alternate universe story from the Silver Age, in which he was accidentally split into two versions of himself, one of which developed electrical powers and became superman blue.

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}: A non-Kryptonian version of the character created in the nineties was prone to change powers constantly. For a while she got fire powers, then she lost them and got telekinesis...

** Ironically, this probably would have been ''less'' stupid if they'd just gone with the obvious explanation; that they're not stingers, they're ''fangs'', part of the same tinkering with [[LegoGenetics his ratio of spider DNA to human DNA]] that caused him to develop organic web-shooting glands.



* In the ''WildCards'' series, John Fortune loses his [[HealingHands healing powers]] after his body is purged of the wild card virus. In the latest book, [[spoiler: John enters into a symbiotic relationship with Sekhmet of the Living Gods, and gains the ability to... change into a fire-breathing lioness. Yup, that's quite a change]].
