** Enforced in the [[VideoGame/PokemonColosseum Orre]] [[VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness games]] with the various Shadow moves. As the moves run off of the Pokemon's Shadow power, they are immediately abandoned and replaced with more normal moves once the Pokemon is purified. Operating words: "more normal", since one of those moves is available to the user through purification and through no other method, like Lugia learning Deoxys' signature move Psycho Boost.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' adds Z-Moves, which allow a Pokémon to perform a stronger-than-normal attack once per battle. Most Z-Moves aren't covered by this trope, as can be used by any Pokémon with a regular move of the same type, but some can only be used by certain Pokémon, such as [[SeriesMascot Pikachu]]'s Catastropika.

* EarthsChildren: The Sharamudoi people have a secret technique for making chamois skin very soft and pliable, and only members of their cave are allowed to know it. This is done for economic reasons--soft chamois is a valuable commodity and other tribes trade things they want for it.

Sometimes the technique is similar to LostTechnology being a SupernaturalMartialArts techniques, [[FunctionalMagic magical spells]] or just [[YakitateJapan bread-making techniques]] that were invented eons ago but have been lost/buried/forgotten/not quite destroyed for a variety of reasons.

* In the ''YoungWizards'' series, every entity in existence (people, planets, universes, etc) has a "kernel", a wadded-up line of symbols from the LanguageOfMagic which both describes and ''is'' the laws by which that entity operates. Since letting any random wizard who felt like it alter a planet's kernel would be a Bad Idea, the knowledge and training of how to manipulate kernels is provided on a strict need-to-know basis. On any given planet populated by sentient beings, there's probably only one or two wizards who can do kernel manipulation.

* In ''TheSlayers'', cooking dragon meat is a secret art, and you have to endure a harsh apprenticeship from an OldMaster to learn how to do it. It turns out it's incredibly difficult to catch dragons and slay them with kitchen implements, and it's even harder (and incredibly time-consuming) to cook their meat properly and remove all poison from it.

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', the [[AntiMagic Spellsplinter Maneuver]] is well-known enough amongst fighters and swordsmen that it can be recognized on sight, but the only person alive who knows how to execute the technique is [[spoiler: Roy Greenhilt, who learned the technique from his grandfather while he was spending time in the afterlife]].
