* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks''
** In "Spare That Rod!", when Mr. Conklin believes Mr. Stone has threatened to fire him for being "flagrantly dictatorial." Mr. Conklin humbly helps out his teachers and is even obsequious toward his students.
** In "Turnabout Day", by the authority of a forged letter Walter Denton becomes the principal on the titular "Turnabout Day". Cue Mr. Conklin pretending to be a student. He arrives on bicycle, wearing a propeller beanie and a Mickey Mouse T-shirt.
** Again, in the penultimate television episode "Principal For A Day". Miss Brooks [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin is briefly promoted to principal, and Mr. Conklin takes a position as history teacher.
** Finally, in TheMovie GrandFinale, Mr. Conklin ''is'' actually threatened with dismissal by Mr. Stone; in a ContinuityNod, Mr. Stone considering Conklin's strict rule of Madison High School "to be tantamount to malfeasance." Mr. Conklin tries acting humble. When that doesn't work, Conklin decides to run against Mr. Stone for the newly created post of "Coordinator of Education" (aka school board president/superintendent) to save his position.

* This is the plot of ''ComicBook/JLAActOfGod'', in which every superpowered hero is BroughtDownToNormal. There's no explanation as to why extraterrestrial heroes (such as ComicBook/MartianManhunter and {{Superman}}) are affected or why tech-based heroes (like {{Steel}}) are spared while the {{Green Lantern}}s' [[GreenLanternRing rings]] (which are also tech) don't. As [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] describes, the story comes off as a love-letter to Franchise/{{Batman}}, as the depowered heroes who still want to be crimefighters are forced to undergo TrainingFromHell under the Caped Crusader's instruction and come to appreciate, one and all, how much he had to go through to be on their level.

* Alicia Johns from the ''Literature/MaloryTowers'' series is a BrilliantButLazy DeadpanSnarker who is extremely condescending to anyone who is not as smart as she is. She also doesn't have much sympathy to the ill, because she herself almost never get sick... until the fourth book, where she got a fever so bad that she failed her exams. Ever since then, she's not as harsh towards those who are not as healthy or clever as herself.

* In ''{{Okami}}'', one level forces [[PhysicalGod Amaterasu]] to be shrunk to the same minuscule size as [[ExpositionFairy Issun]]. When a human foot nearly stomps on both of them, Issun doesn't fail to drop "Do you understand how I feel now?" We don't get to know how [[HeroicMime she]] felt about the "experience" though...

* ''DGrayMan'': Allen Walker has a left eye that allows him to distinguish humans from Akuma. After [[CreepyChild Road]] stabs his left eye and he (temporarily) loses this ability, he realizes that Exorcists who don't have it, as powerful as they can be, must constantly expose themselves and suspect ''every single human'' of being an Akuma. Since Allen was used to relying on his left eye, Lavi has to make him understand that if he's too careless he will be killed in no time. Of course, once Allen's eye upgrades so that the people around him can distinguish humans from Akuma (by showing them the soul inside of an Akuma), Lavi is forced to acknowledge that Allen's ability [[BlessedWithSuck isn't all it's cracked up to be]].
* [[RoyalBrat Mashiro Blanc de Windbloom]] in ''MaiOtome'' goes brutally through this after being forced out of her throne and realizing how much the people of her own kingdom hate her. Since [[KingIncognito barely anyone knows her face]] she can mix with the people who fled the kingdom and learns what it is to be hungry and desperate.
-->'''Mashiro:''' (eating a quickly prepared soup) It's delicious...
-->'''A kid:''' Is it? It tastes pretty bad if you ask me...
-->'''Mashiro:''' (crying) No... I never realized how delicious food was before...
