* Building these is fairly simple in ''{{GURPS}}'' but a particularly funny example appears in the Biotech supplement where the [[CatGirl Felicia]] parahuman template has a Super Mode that causes their libido to go into overdrive afterward.

* Various groups in ''{{Exalted}}'' can do this. Among the most prominent are Lunars using the Deadly Beastman Transformation Knack and Infernals using Shintai Charms.

** In ''VideoGame/DragonBallOnline'' and ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse2'', Majin race characters can access the Pure Majin state, in which they tap into the latent power that has otherwise been lost to their kind over the generations and assume a form resembling Kid Buu. Also in ''Xenoverse 2'', Frieza Race characters can access Frieza's Golden form, while the can design their characters default model to look like Cooler's transformation.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' has a super mode for each playable character in story mode: Michael can slow down time on foot, Franklin can slow down time while driving, and Trevor inflicts double damage while increasing his own resistance to damage.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', [[FusionDance Fusion]] normally creates a unique entity with a mixture of AllYourPowersCombined and the components powers mixing to form new ones. However, Steven and Connie's Fusion, Stevonnie is different and in practice serves as this for their components in an actual fight. Connie is a WeakButSkilled BadassNormal, so Stevonnie only has Steven's power set with Connie contributing a sizable power boost and her skill in sword fighting. This results Stevonnie being powerful enough to [[spoiler:go head to head with [[ArcVillain Jasper]]]].

* Several times during the course of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' Unit 01 goes into "berserk" mode where it operates autonomously and becomes much more powerful than it normally is - though this is less a Super Mode than it is the Eva getting [[UnstoppableRage angry enough]] to temporarily overpower its {{Power Limiter}}s.

Unit 01 goes into "berserk" mode where several times which it operates autonomously and becomes much more powerful than it normally is - though this is less a Super Mode than it is the Eva getting [[UnstoppableRage angry enough]] to temporarily overpower its {{Power Limiter}}s.



*** Another Super Mode appears in the second and third movies as well: Unit 02 is capable of turning off its {{Power Limiter}}s at will to revert into a bestial form that behaves more like a rabid animal than a human. In the second film, Mari invokes it with the now-memetic line ''"Invert controls; backdoor code: '''THE BEAST'''"''; in the third, Asuka uses ''"Mode change: Code 777"'' instead, [[spoiler:making the Eva adopt a more animalistic appearance: digitigrade legs, prominent fangs and even an animate tail]]. In this mode the Eva is capable of, among other things, ''catching Zeruel-grade {{Eye Beam}}s with its mouth'' and [[NoSell slapping them aside as if they were nothing]]. The only downside is that it makes the pilot go AxCrazy for the duration of the mode and it's also stated to cause [[MindRape mental contamination]], [[InformedAttribute though we haven't seen any ill-effects from that]].
* In ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', after Yusuke [[spoiler:dies and comes back to life]], he is able to change into his demon form, which gives him access to both spirit and demon energy. Kurama can also revert back to Yoko Kurama (who was much stronger), and Hiei also has his demon form (where multiple eyes sprout on his body, used only once in the series); Hiei can also absorb his Dragon of the Darkness Flame attack, which grants a massive power boost.

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'' the Dragon Slayers have Dragon Force, which gives them the destructive power of dragons and can be achieved through either devouring a powerful source of magic or naturally through training. [[spoiler:The fully realized Dragon Force literally transforms a Slayer [[{{Animorphism}} into a Dragon]], as shown by [[BigBad Acnologia]]]].

** There also exists "Take Over" Magic, which allows the mage to fight by [[PowersViaPossession absorbing other creatures and using their powers]]. Obviously, the more powerful forms will serve this purpose, like Mirajane's Satan Soul: [[spoiler:Seliah and/or Algeria]], and [[spoiler:Dimaria's God Soul: Chronos]].

* The Super Saiyan (and its variants) from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' is easily the TropeCodifier; a legendary warrior with an increasingly long mane of blond hair who gains an order of magnitude of power. This is achieved out of a cross between strength, a pure (good, evil, determined, etc.) heart, and [[TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening a ]]''[[TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening really]]'' [[TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening bad day]].

** Before there was the Super Saiyan, there was the functionally similar but inferior Kaio-ken technique. This has a red aura and increases the user's strength and speed by a specific numerical factor (usually 2, 4, 10 or 20), but puts a proportional strain on the body, which can cause injury it held for too long. After Super Saiyan, Kaio-ken becomes obsolete and isn't seen again except in a filler arc and [[spoiler: ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', when Goku finds he can combine it with the most powerful variant of Super Saiyan]].

* Most of Frieza's transformations qualify as a OneWingedAngel,and even then invert the trope since they are actually a technique to limit and mask Frieza's true strenght, but his Golden Form is a traditional SuperMode. It empowers him with vastly higher ''Ki''rather than holding back his power like the other transformations. It slightly increases his height and muscle mass and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin turns him gold]] jusT like the Super Saiyan Transformation he modeled it on.
* Frieza's NonSerialMovie -exclusive brother, Cooler, also had a fifth form, although Cooler, rather than "evolving" like Frieza, instead used the technique their race normally uses to limit their strenght to boost it, massively expanding his muscle mass and getting SpikesOfDoom.
* Broly and Bojack, two other movie villains, also had Super modes. Broly's SuperMode was notably a genetically exlusive version of the Super Saiyan transformation.
