As an example, let us take a character who is known for [[ScrewTheRulesImBeautiful using her beauty to get her way]]. If said character is beautiful to ''anyone'', in spite of ''any'' context or changes that can affect how beautiful she is, then she probably has a fantastical superpower called "{{Glamour}}". On the other hand, let's assume her beauty requires plausible upkeep, modification, cosmetics, or skill, with the risk of being ruined by something as simple as a scar, becoming smudged or dirtied, or encountering a person of an [[SorryImGay incompatible sexual orientation]]. Now, she has a {{Real Life Super Power|s}}.

** In a way, this trope is [[PlayingWithATrope played with]] for Cap. He is at peak human ability for everything, which isn't possible in a stock human. A marathoner has a far different build and training style than a sprinter, for instance, yet Cap can do both.
