All these tropes are especially good targets for subversion or aversion, because the absence or malfunction of a superhero's RequiredSecondaryPowers creates a dramatically useful limit on their primary powers. A slight lack of these may oftentimes cause a LogicalWeakness. Compare LethalHarmlessPowers. Also, many accusations of MisappliedPhlebotinum rely on the assumption that the characters or factions in question have the [=RSPs=] needed to pull out all the theoretical potential. One way for people to learn ways to cope with, or even surpass the limits of their powers as outlined by this trope is to take BoxingLessonsForSuperman, as the new skills and knowledge they can acquire from such training will let them better understand the scope of their powers and find ways to better control it, or work around said limits of their power.

'''Warning: Exploration of this Trope may result in brain breakage.''' But you [[MyBrainIsBig probably have]] [[SuperIntelligence something to]] [[OmnidisciplinaryScientist counter that]], [[RequiredSecondaryPowers right]]?
