* ''Literature/TheLongPriceQuartet:'' The Khaiate poets have this power. If they can completely and unambiguously describe a concept that nobody else has described in that fashion before, that concept becomes incarnate as an ''andat'', and grants total power over that concept. So the poet who holds Stone-Made-Soft can harden or soften any stone anywhere in the world, while the poet who holds Clarity-Of-Vision can enhance the vision of any living thing... or blind it.

In many cases, this is an example of a weapon or power that overtly tests the ''creativity'' of the wielder and their ability to think outside the box. Often, when villains get ahold of the device, they fail at using it, only to be scolded by the hero that their flaw is that they lack the imagination and creativity to make any real use of the item.

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'',
** Tsuyu Asui's Quirk, "Frog-Form", lets her do everything that a frog can do: leap bounds with her strong legs, cling to walls, blend into her environment with natural camouflage, and use a tongue that is long, strong, and prehensile. At the same time, she is also cold-blooded like a frog and can be weakened by prolonged exposure to the cold.
** Eri's unnamed Quirk is described as being able [[spoiler:"rewind" things to a previous state. So far, she's removed Quirks, undo fusions, heal injuries, and ''erase people from existence'']]. Because such a power can easily become a StoryBreakerPower, she's hospitalized and feverish at the end of her spotlight arc, which also implies that her power is limited.

* ''LightNovel/KagerouDaze'': Kido's Concealing Eyes lets her make people or objects within several meters of her impossible to notice. The seventh novel reveals a much different way her power can be used: [[spoiler:causing LaserGuidedAmnesia by "concealing" memories.]]

* One of the winning entries on the ''Lyttle Lytton'' website, which rewards parodies of bad fictio, features a literal example, the Anagramancer, who apparently can do anything, as long as it's an anagram of the name of his enemy. So basically, he's omnipotent, but only based on the monster he's facing.
