** Taken to a whole new level with Mephiles, the BigBad of ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'', as he can use Chaos Control to willingly travel to any point in time and manipulate events accordingly and even forcibly throw his enemies through time. [[spoiler:Eventually, Shadow, Sonic, and Silver learn to do the same by using Chaos Control against each other.]]

** The Vision and Scarlet Witch were also fairly nerfed from their Age of Ultron appearances. In AoU, both of them take out huge numbers of Ultron's drones. In Civil War, suddenly they aren't much more effective than somewhat tougher than average people.

** Voldemort ''believes'' the Elder Wand to be this, as its one of the three Deathly hallows, making it the Wizarding equivalent of the HolyGrail or TheSpearOfDestiny (though he's ignorant of this history, having been raised a {{Muggle}}). In practice, however, the Elder Wand is merely a very powerful wand, and its infamy makes it a DoomMagnet: those who wield the Elder Wand tend to end up murdered for it, and in the end, it dooms Voldemort himself when he fails to realize that [[spoiler:''Harry'' is its true master]]. When it finally passes into Harry's hands, he chooses to break its curse by never wielding it, and in the movie [[spoiler:he seals the decision by snapping it in two]]. On top of that Dumbledore actually claimed the wand himself by legitimately defeating its previous owner -- a difficult feat to be sure, but nevertheless proof that the wand is only half the equation.

** The Marauder's Map was this, thanks to essentially giving Harry information on everything in the school. Rowling had to have it confiscated for most of the fourth book for exactly this reason, and admits that she sometimes wishes she'd had Crouch keep it.

* According to WordOfGod, this is a major reason both Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk and [[TheMightyThor Thor]] were excluded from ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''. They're so much more powerful than most of the other heroes that they'd tilt the balance of power ridiculously in favor of whichever team they ended up on. For some reason, the Vision and the Scarlet Witch weren't given similar treatment, though it would've been harder find a plausible reason to keep them away and putting them on opposite sides allowed them to pretty much cancel each other out.

** Ironically, this is exactly the reason he loses to [[spoiler: Shiro]] in the ''Unlimited Blade Works'' anime. Gilgamesh relies so much on having the best possible weapon for any situation that he doesn't know how to actually ''use'' any of his massive arsenal. When he's finally forced to go mano-a-mano, his swordsmanship is clumsy and amateurish, and even when he pulls out Ea [[spoiler: he's so slow on the draw that Shiro [[literally AnArmAndALeg]] disarms him before he can swing it.]] His claim to be holding back his true power even while getting his ass kicked belies the fact that no, he really isn't. Throwing weapons at people is ''all he's got''.

* In ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' Wyoming's Time Distortion Unit powers are nebulously defined anyway, but we know at the very least it can be used to loop small segments of time (used specifically by Wyoming to "replay" a situation in which he loses) and slow/stop time around the user. Yet in the prequel bits, Wyoming never once makes use of it, even after we ''know'' he has an AI. This is because time manipulation should make it impossible for Wyoming to ever lose--and he very specifically has to at a few points.

** Later seasons add a limit to the Time Distortion Unit, namely, a charge limit. The Meta is already overpowered enough as it is, but it's first attempt at using Wyoming's upgrade renders its suit unable to power any of its equipment, forcing it to retreat.

** Nine of the Six Heroes, who would eventually marry Jubei, also counts; she is probably the most powerful magic user in the series, even [[spoiler: The Goddess Of Death and one of the CoDragons]] think so. She can manipulate the elements, though fire is her favourite, control gravity, fly, enhance her physical abilities, [[spoiler: control the mind of someone as powerful as Terumi, and after becoming Phantom look into alternate timelines, which Terumi abuses like a cheat sheet to successfully play XanatosSpeedChess with the entire cast. Mitigated by her nuclear temper, arrogance, the fact that she is on some level refusing to follow orders, hwe love for hee sistee, and that once your get past all the power, she has the endurance of wet tissue paper; as soon aa he gets an opening, Ragna takes her out in one hit.]]
