* In ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'', the first episode has you play through a dream sequence and then goof around in class for a bit to learn the basic mechanics. Max doesn't manifest her TimeMaster powers (which provide the basis for the game's rewind mechanic) until she witnesses Chloe getting shot, at which point everything's rewound and you get to replay the same scene with the benefit of her powers.

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Mystery of the Emblem]]'' and the remake hand Marth the title shield at the end of chapter 2. It's only in-game function is to open treasure chests, admittedly, but its storyline powers are rather more impressive.

* This is relatively common in the ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' series. In ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', the Star Meter abilities are only available after visiting the eponymous door for the first time, and in ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' you get the 3D-flip ability halfway through the first level.
** Dates back to the first game as well. You start the game using basic attacks, and after visiting Shooting Star Summit for the first time, you get the Lucky Star, which gives you access to ActionCommands, a ''very'' important aspect of the games' battle system.

** Likewise, Series/KamenRiderKiva starts off the series with three alternate forms besides his default. He gains his final SuperMode earlier than many other Riders, though there was also a [[RealLifeWritesThePlot real life]] reason: the original Kiva costume was so heavy that it almost killed the stuntman once, so they swapped over to the lighter Emperor Form costume and used it as often as they could.

* In ''VideoGame/TheDarkness'', Jackie gains the power of the Darkness only after he "dies".
** This also applies to the sequel wherein the power of the Darkness is released only after he suffers an injury by the second level of the game.
