** Teseo, one of Eden's G7, has the "[[DigitizedHacker Hack the Planet]]" Septima which lets him rival the above examples in terms of sheer destructive potential. According to his Dengeki profile, his Septima is said to belong to the same group as the ''[[LightningCanDoAnything Azure Striker]]'' and '''[[MagicMusic The Muse]]'''. His Septima lets him manipulate computer data, which allows him bring objects and fictional characters into the real world and vice versa, essentially making him a RealityWarper. He can fly and teleport himself and others anywhere in the world by turning them into data. Like Gunvolt and Asroc, he can control technology, but on a much larger scale. [[spoiler:His appearance in ''Mighty Gunvolt Burst'' shows that he can create digital copies of anyone he meets and even alter them to make them stronger than the originals.]] And after receiving a Grimoire, his power becomes strong enough to ''turn an entire building into cyberspace.''

** On the winners' side, we have Jasper (incredible SuperStrength and NighInvulnerability along with a RollingAttack), Sapphire [[spoiler: and by extension, Garnet]] (ability to see the future), Lapis Lazuli (flight and nigh-perfect control over water, which wasn't too impressive until she got stuck on a planet that was covered in it), and Rose Quartz (SuperStrength, LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe, GreenThumb, HealingTears, and controlling the speed of her descent).

** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Apocalypse is even more powerful than Shaw was, again ranking second only to "Phoenix" (who is a CosmicEntity). Because he can [[GrandTheftMe transfer his consciousness to new host bodies]] and [[PowerParasite acquires the powers of every new host]], he's amassed so many superpowers over thousands of years that many ([[AGodAmI including himself]]) believe him to be a god. His powers include SuperStrength, MindOverMatter at the molecular level, [[BarrierWarrior invincible forcefields]], [[VillainTeleportation intercontinental teleportation]], HealingFactor, and amplifying the powers of other mutants or [[SuperEmpowering giving them new ones]]. His goal in the film is to [[spoiler:acquire Charles Xavier's Psychic Powers by using him as a new host and MindControl the entire planet at once.]]

Just before Jean/Phoenix vaporizes Apocalypse, he concludes that ''she'' is actually the god he always believed himself to be]].
** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' and ''Apocolypse'' also show Quicksilver as a case of this. His SuperSpeed is so ridiculously fast that physically he's practically untouchable. He can't just outrun bullets and explosions, he can move so fast they're almost stationary to him. In ''[=DoFP=]'' he [[DeusExitMachina promptly left the group]] after helping them free Magneto from his prison, because he was just too powerful to maintain any drama in the story if he stayed. And in ''Apocalypse'' he arrives at the Xavier Mansion ''after'' it's already exploding, yet is able to run in and rescue all of the dozens of students, one and two at at time, before the blast can reach them. Even Apocalypse himself was [[CurbstompCushion initially unable to fight back when Quicksilver attacked him]]; he has to dip deep into his collection of stolen powers to find one that even allows him to perceive something moving that quickly and then predict his steps so as to catch his foot in a sand trap.

* This seems to be the case with speedsters in ''Series/TheFlash2014''. Besides simple speed, Barry keeps learning new ways to use his power to simulate other powers. He can augment his punches with speed to simulate SuperStrength, he can run on vertical surfaces as well as water, he can heal fast, he can create twisters by making quick circular movements with his arms (which he can also use to simulate flying), he can phase through solid objects, travel through time, jump into parallel worlds, create virtual duplicates, throw lightning bolts, and "twin" himself by creating "time remnants". Zoom has been able to do even more by somehow being able to sense interdimensional rifts and another meta-human scrying him. Savitar appears to be the fastest speedster in all the Multiverse. He can pretty much teleport around the city with his speed and can only be seen by speedsters and his disciples.

** [[spoiler:The Thinker becomes this. At first, he only has super-intelligence, but after absorbing the powers of other metahumans he now has technology manipulation, luck manipulation, effigy manipulation, size manipulation, soundwave generation, teleportation, dimensional travel, power absorption, power transferral, telepathy, mind reading, memory manipulation, drug creation, elasticity, shapeshifting, pain invulnerability and weight manipulation. The last meta that he wants to get the power of is a character nicknamed Fallout, who has the power to ''control radiation.'']]

Beyond HardWorkHardlyWorks, past the inevitable SidekickGlassCeiling, someone who won the Superpower Lottery has an unambiguously [[StoryBreakerPower overwhelming ability]] compared to everyone else in their reality. There is no actual CompetitiveBalance. Therefore, a common FanNickname for such a power is "[[GameBreaker Haxxor]]", implying it's the kind of power someone who's rewriting "the game" would give themselves. Such characters will invariably end up on the higher levels of SuperWeight.

** Brutaka of the Order of Mata Nui. When he went [[FaceHeelTurn rogue]], he was considered ''the'' most dangerous being on Voya Nui, more so than all six of the Piraka (members of the previously-mentioned Skadi) ''combined''. He possessed enough physical strength to match his old comrade [[AnAxeToGrind Axonn]], who is as strong as a Makuta, a [[MaskOfPower mask]] that allowed him to [[DimensionalTraveler rip open portals through dimensions]] and [[WeaponizedTeleportation send his enemies anywhere he wanted]], a sword that [[ShockAndAwe shoots lightning and energy beams]], and could increase his strength by absorbing [[SentientPhlebotinum Antidermis]] ([[spoiler:actually the energy of Makuta]]) which usually enslaves those exposed. His best claim to fame? When he [[CurbStompBattle destroyed all the members of the Toa Nuva and the Voya Nui Matoran resistance with a single strike]]. [[spoiler:And all of this was before he fell into a pool of Antidermis and apparently gained most, if not all, of the Makuta powers along with most of the knowledge about the Matoran universe, though he was a good guy again when that happened]].

** Tahu, besides possessing the elemental power of fire and the Mask of Shielding, gained most (if not all) of the 42 Makuta powers as well, and has AdaptiveArmor. This is somewhat balanced out by him having lost his other five masks and being downgraded to his pre-MidSeasonUpgrade self, although technically there's nothing stopping him from picking up some more masks as long as someone builds a mask-storing shrine for him.

It also averts StoryBreakerPower because he only gains the Makuta powers at the very end.

** Delsin from ''VideoGame/InfamousSecondSon'' definitely won the lottery with his ability to copy other Conduit powers ala {{ComicBook/Rogue}}. Over the course of the game, he gains Hank's SuperSmoke, Fetch's [[LightEmUp Neon lasers]], [[spoiler: Eugene's hard light constructs and Augustine's concrete abilities.]] All of his powers are abundant in an urban environment, and he can also absorb core relays and blast shards to improve his powers. Granted, his powers do come with some drawbacks. He can only use one powerset at a time, he needs to absorb core relays in order master new powers, and he can't switch until he's absorbed enough core relays. [[spoiler: Augustine exploits these weaknesses as the FinalBoss by giving him her powers, locking him in a powerset he has no experience with, and leaving him near helpless against her OneWingedAngel form.]]

** If you thought Cole, Nix and Kuo won the superpower lottery in Infamous 2, that's ''nothing'' compared to Delsin from ''VideoGame/InfamousSecondSon'' definitely won ''VideoGame/InfamousSecondSon''. In the lottery with his ability Infamous universe, Conduits are all unified by the central tenet of their ability; they are able to copy summon, reshape and manipulate ''something''. Cole was lightning, Nix was fire and Kuo was ice. Delsin? His "something" was ''other Conduits'', manifesting itself as a {{ComicBook/Rogue}}-esque capability to inherit and use the abilities of any other Conduit powers ala {{ComicBook/Rogue}}. Over he comes into contact with. Even his very first ability - the course SuperSmoke - was inherited from Hank, the first of the game, Curden Cay escapees he gains Hank's SuperSmoke, Fetch's [[LightEmUp Neon lasers]], [[spoiler: Eugene's hard light constructs and Augustine's concrete abilities.]] All of his powers are abundant in an urban environment, and he can also absorb core relays and blast shards to improve his powers. Granted, his powers do come with some drawbacks. He can meets. However, unlike Rogue, Delsin's main drawback is that he's only able to make use one of a single powerset at a time, he needs to absorb core relays in order master new powers, and he can't switch until he's absorbed enough core relays. any one time; [[spoiler: a quirk Augustine exploits these weaknesses is only too happy to exploit as the FinalBoss by giving him her powers, locking him in a powerset he has no experience with, and leaving him near helpless against her OneWingedAngel form.]]]] In fact, Delsin's ability can be likened to two other pop-culture characters, depending on his alignment. The good karmic path has him more akin to Rogue; using the abilities he's obtained (through happenstance) for selfless acts, deeming the saving of his friends at the reservation "the right thing to do". Go down the ''Infamous'' karma path however... and [[spoiler: Delsin destroys the stricken reservation in a fit of rage after his friends - having seen his exploits in Seattle - spurn him and refuse his assistance. With his brother dead and the Akomish no longer around as a moral crutch, Delsin goes to liberate Curden Cay and, in the process, doesn't resist those who wish to shake his hand for the apparent good deed. In doing so, he gains access to the abilities of everyone imprisoned there and becomes just like another ability-thieving, conscienceless supervillain... ''Sylar from Heroes'']].
