* In ''Literature/{{Neverwhere}}'', Door can unlock anything. Including, when she sets her mind to it, people -- with gory results.



* In ''TabletopGame/{{Nobilis}}'', players typically stretch their powers over basic concepts of reality in this way.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Nobilis}}'', players typically stretch their powers over basic concepts of reality in this way. The God of Borders once demonstrates this by suspending the conceptual distinction between "citizen" and "criminal", which plunges a city into anarchy for a month.

* In ''{{Tsukihime}}'' and ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' there exist the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception which allow you to see the "lines of death" of objects, which cause the object to be destroyed when cut. This has been applied not only to destroy inanimate objects and mortal beings but also numerous immortals, poisons, telekinetic attacks and barriers and even space. The concept of death is stretched to the point where it is said that by the end of ''Kara no Kyoukai'' [[spoiler: Shiki at full power is basically a god.]]

* Wildcat from the ''JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'' has nine lives. You'd think he'd be gone after dying nine times, but nope: he ''always'' has nine lives.

** In one instance, Gladstone tries to rig up a raffle against ButtMonkey Donald by filling the name-selection box with pieces of paper with his own name, leaving only one with Donald's on it...only to realize (too late) that this makes choosing his cousin's name a far less likely prospect--which thereby makes it the ''luckier'' option.
** Gladstone and Huey, Dewey, and Louie once competed to find a rare ruby buried somewhere on a beach. While the boys dug, Gladstone spread his towel out on the sand and waited, knowing full well that his luck powers would eventually hand the ruby to him. When he finally got impatient and left, Huey, Dewey, and Louie decided to check the one spot no one had thought to luck: ''under Gladstone's blanket.'' And sure enough, that's precisely where the gem was. In other words, Gladstone's powers [[ExactWords did find the spot where the ruby was]]--they didn't ''give'' it to him.

* This is about the only limitation to the [[SmugSnake infuriatingly annoying]] Gladstone Gander's [[BornLucky inherent power of extremely good luck]] in the [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Donald Duck comic stories]]. Specifically, Gladstone seems to have the ability to always receive an outcome that has the lowest possible odds. This backfires on him, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard especially when he tries to manipulate that outcome]], on several occasions:

** Mike is Ullr, god of games, which means that he doesn't lose games under any circumstances--and a game is defined as anything that two people agree is a game. He's invincible in a fight if his opponent makes the mistake of betting on it, and he can even read minds if someone asks him "Guess what?" After all, it's a guessing ''game''.

** Josuke from ''[=JoJolion=]''. His stand, Soft & Wet, has the power to "steal" anything from something, which boils down to removing a certain property from something. He has already used it to remove friction from a floor and the "click" sound from a light switch.

* ''Series/{{Once Upon a Time}}'' has the Enchanted Sand, whose power makes anything broken appear fixed. It's first used on the broken blade of Excalibur, making it look like the sword is whole again. Later, it effectively works as a love potion when Arthur uses it on his wife Guinevere to fix their "broken" marriage after finding out about her affair with Lancelot. Then things get weird when he uses it to enslave Snow and David's minds after they find out about his nefarious goals, meaning... it fixed their broken trust or something?

** Johann, father of the Johnson brothers, is Njord, god of the sea. His power is to "spread oil on troubled waters," to calm the sea. While this works fine on the literal sea, he mostly uses it to calm arguments. He coasts through life doing whatever he wants, since no one can stay mad at him.
