** [[VideoGame/MortalKombat9 The 2011 game]] has an example: when controlled by the A.I., Shang Tsung can transform into your fighter and two other random kombatants at will. When controlled by the player, Shang Tsung can only transform into his opponent '''after''' using his Soul Steal move on them. Back in the day, when half the cast was PaletteSwap versions of each other, he could turn into anyone, but advancing technology has its downside.

* In ''VideoGame/JojosBizarreAdventureHeritageForTheFuture'', the story mode NPC-only version of Vanilla Ice uses unique special and super moves, causing much more damage, although they are more predictable.

** He gets Judgement on the player side in the later non Gamecube versions of the game, meaning all moves the boss version has can also be used by the player. However boss Zelos has access to all possible moves, both Strike and Technical, which isn't possible for the player as you can only have one or the other.

Added DiffLines:

** The Kanto Classic online competition will offer a Dragonite as a participation prize. Said Dragonite is an exact copy of Lance's, and even comes complete with Barrier, making this the first time in ''20 years'' of ''Pokémon'' that the infamous combination [[AscendedMeme will finally be legal]].

* In the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' games, the Krogan are said to possess backup vital organs (in some cases, more than one backup); thus, when a Krogan is killed in a way that leaves his body intact, he merely falls down for a few seconds, then gets back up after regaining about half his health. In ''[=ME1=]'' and ''2'', Shepard can recruit a Krogan into his/her party, but in both games, said Krogan lacks this regenerative ability. Possibly justified because, assuming Shepard survives the battle, his/her fallen allies (Krogan or otherwise) will get back up anyway after it's over, albeit with a health level closer to 25% than 50%.
** Note that the Krogan character that can be recruited into the party has continual health regeneration, which is something that enemy krogan lacked in ''[=ME1=]''. The Krogan regeneration power was actually pretty similar to the effects of Shepard using a Medi-Gel item, except that it only applied to a single enemy instead of the entire party like the Medi-Gel power.

** The Conjurer, [[spoiler:Yulyana]], has both Meteor and Amped Strike, which are from two different classes, in addition to his own class, which the player can not do, and in fact, no other boss does.

* Notably {{averted}} in [TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Dungeons & Dragons] third edition, where you can play as almost any monster in the books, and you can use any ability they have in the books. Discussed in Libris Mortis, a supplemental book about undead. {{Played Straight}} in 4th edition.

** This also applies to the character battles in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 (although the extra attacks do become usable in 2-Player Mode), ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}}'', ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'', ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'', and ''[[VideoGame/SonicStorybookSeries Sonic and the Black Knight]]''.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon: Darkness and Time'' does this with the enemy Pokémon in the dungeons. The Pokémon will have access to higher level moves and several IQ skills (like PP Saver) in the later dungeons, but if you were to actually recruit them, they'll have the normal moveset and lowest IQ. The most blatant example of this is ALL the Nidoqueen having access to Earth Power in World Abyss regardless of level.
** ''Gates to Infinity'' does this with bosses' moves which work differently than they do for you. For example, Kyurem's Dragonbreath [[ChargedAttack needs charging up]], but it pierces through Pokémon.
