* ''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...

* Notably ''averted'' in the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' episode "Powerless!". Captain Atom wallows in self-pity when BroughtDownToNormal and goes right back to being a SmugSuper when his powers come back. [[SpoofAesop He learned that humans are weak, pitiful and defenseless]] so demigods like himself have to protect them at all costs.

* An early episode of ''BoyMeetsWorld'' revolved around Cory getting a goofy haircut. The kids made fun of him for the day and the weird kids (Topanga, Mikus, etc.) befriended him. He explained that he now knew what it felt like to be an outcast at school.
* ''TheBradyBunch'': a [[TheBully bully]] is teasing Cindy for having a lisp, so Peter knocks his front teeth out. Now ''he'' has a lisp.

* In ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'', SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor gets empowered with abilities like Franchise/{{Superman}}'s for a day. While he at first reveled in the power and used it to terrorize Metropolis, at some point, the SuperSenses began to kick in, and Luthor suddenly gained a newfound perspective and started to Go Sane From The Revelation. For the first time, he understood the enormous weight that was on Superman's shoulders every day of his life. At the peak of it all, he ''cries'', and once the powers fade away, it's implied the lesson sticks with him.

* In the Tatarigoroshi arc of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'', Keiichi starts to scream at Mion for not wanting to take Satoko in her huge house to protect her from her uncle. After he made Mion cry, Rena proceeds to do the same to Keiichi, asking him why ''he'' doesn't take Satoko in his huge house. That makes him immediately realize how much he hurt Mion with his behavior. He resolves to find [[MurderIsTheBestSolution a different way]] to save Satoko, but unfortunately it doesn't work out very well... [[spoiler:for anyone]].

* In WreckItRalph, Felix is too naive to realise how hard it is for Ralph to be the ButtMonkey and DesignatedVillain of his game, until Felix leaves the game and gets treated in the same way by people outside. When he makes the realisation, he suddenly becomes a lot closer to Ralph, looking out for him and calling him 'brother'.

* 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 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.
