* Flight became this in ''Manga/DragonBall''. It was introduced halfway through the first series, as a special ability of the ArcVillain. By the beginning of Anime/DragonBallZ, not being able to fly was considered a liability in combat.

Compare/contrast EleventhHourSuperpower, which involves a sudden power-up right before the climax, and ATasteOfPower, which lets you have a (nearly) full set of powers for a while before taking them away.

* 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.
