*** [[HarmlessVillain Bu]][[StarterVillain ggy]], ironically, is both a winner and a loser of the lottery. He's one of the weakest ones, pretty he is much a gag villain, with his ability being to split himself into pieces without harm. He's too lazy to truly take care of his power, but as shown when used as a shield by Luffy against [[TheDreaded Dracule Mihawk]], not even the world's best swordsman can injure him with a blade.

** In general, any Omega-level mutant falls to this, with the possible exception of [[ComicBook/GreatLakesAvengers Mr. Immortal]] (depending on whether being absolutely incapable of dying by any means is [[LivingForeverIsAwesome winning]] or [[WhoWantsToLiveForever losing]]). Essentially, an Omega-level mutant has no upper limit to whatever specific thing their powers control. Note that many famously ultra-powerful mutants like Magneto and Apocalypse are ''not'' officially classified as Omega-level (though Magneto probably should be). Let's not think about ComicBook/SquirrelGirl.

** Vulcan, emperor of the Shi'ar [[spoiler:and the infamous "Third Summers Brother"]] plays with this. While he was born with a very powerful EnergyAbsorption ability, and technically was always an omega-level mutant, originally he was not as crazy strong as he would later become -- rather, like other mutant Superpower Lottery winners described above such as Iceman and Jean Grey, his potential initially laid fallow. But then [[ComicBook/HouseOfM M-Day]] happened, depowering several million mutants whose collective power he all subconsciously absorbed while being trapped inside a dead evil mutant island floating in space (it's a long story). The sum total was that Vulcan busted out of that evil mutant island turned space rock with his powers heightened a hundredfold -- and a ''major'' case of WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity going on.

** Lord Enlgish, the primary villain won the Lottery even harder: first off, his species naturally has powers strong enough to affect entire worlds. Being the Lord of Time gives him time-travel powers. Then he obtains Yaldaboath's treasure, making him mostly immortal and giving him total mastery over the aspect of Time. From there the details are unclear, but his powers increased even further, giving him Absolute ''Retroactive'' Immortality (he cannot undergo a RetGone because ''time itself'' ensures his survival) and he has raw power that surpasses the Omnipotents by a long shot. We still don't know the limits of his powers, but he is powerful enough to kill souls and mass-slaughter {{Eldritch Abomination}}s with impunity.

* Of the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Raven basically has a lot of powers. NewPowersAsThePlotDemands and DeusExMachina, for example. The Teen Titans Wiki lists her as having the following: Considerable arcane and mystic lore of both Azarath and Earth, telekinesis, astral projection ("Soul-Self"), levitation, empathy, telepathy, umbrakinetic dark energy manipulation (into energy blasts, a variety of constructs ranging from walls to claws to shields to flying platforms and effective telekinesis), biological manipulation (generally of herself), teleportation (across relatively short distances on the same planet or into other adjacent dimensions), time manipulation (uncontrolled and rare), physical healing (limited) of both herself and others, limited precognition, able to summon all her emotional forms and merge with them as White Raven in the multi-dimensional realm of her mind, ability to transfer power to others and cause them to lose consciousness, control over Trigon's lesser demons and ability to banish them (at least after acceptance of personal destiny), ability to rapidly age self back to normal age (in "white" form). She's by far the most frequent target for [[BroughtDownToNormal depowering]] or TheWorfEffect, but when she's not either, the result is epic.
** Season 3 BigBad Brother Blood is up there, with documented abilities being: MindControl, [[MasterOfIllusion illusion crafting]], telekinesis, projecting energy beams, [[VillainTeleportation teleporting]], [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower superhuman martial-arts skills]], [[spoiler:armor plating, built in weaponry, and the ability to interface with machinery acquired after becoming a {{Cyborg}},]] and [[FlightStrengthHeart a photographic memory]].
*** Not to the extent of the first two, but Jinx's powers of bad luck are shown to be very versatile.

* The ComicBook/MartianManhunter. His full list of Post-Crisis demonstrated powers covers half the StockSuperpowers page, and his [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] version was even ''more'' arbitrarily powerful. And yet he is ''still'' always a victim of TheWorfEffect. "Oh my gosh if he defeated Martian Manhunter how can Superman defeat him?" Apparently the answer to this question is always "Easily".
** The mind boggles at how he has heat vision while being weak to fire. It makes as much sense as Superman having kryptonite EyeBeams.
** The ''big'' downgrade, both post-Crisis and in the Franchise/{{DCAU}}, was dropping an aspect of his shapeshifting -- namely, the ability to ''gain the powers'' of whatever form he changed into! He would lose his standard set (except for the ability to shapeshift), but who cares? Used sensibly (which it generally wasn't), this gives J'Onn the winning ticket in the SuperpowerLottery all by itself.

* Franchise/{{Superman}}: So many powers that an entire title's worth of ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' could be fielded with them (genrally include EyeBeams, FlyingBrick, NighInvulnerable, SuperBreath, SuperSpeed and SuperStrength). They also tend to be at the highest end of the power spectrum for each, rendering him immensely powerful even among other equally strong and widely powered individuals. While quite a few writers have managed to sort it out and write engaging stories with him in defiance of his closeness to being a DeusExMachina, even other characters in the setting comment on (or become envious of) his many powers. The short form: With Superman around, what are all the ''other'' guys in the [[Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]] supposed to do? (The best ''JLA'' writers have a good answer for this question.)
** Based on the evidence, it seems that the other superheroes make themselves useful by filling the pretty-glaring-once-you-think-about-it gap in Superman's powers his inability to be in multiple places at once. If shit is going down all over the city/world/solar system simultaneously, Superman may be able to deal with a huge, devastating catastrophe that would crush other superheroes, but can still only deal with ''one'' of them at a time.
** UsefulNotes/{{The Silver Age|of Comic Books}} Superman was far worse. Writers gave him basically anything you could stick the word "super" in front of as a power, including super-hypnotism and super-ventriloquism. And in addition to the ''array'' of powers he had during the Silver Age, their ''power level'' was also through the roof. Post-Crisis Superman can juggle battleships; pre-Crisis Superman could juggle '''planets'''.
** In 1971 editor Julius Schwartz tried to reduce Superman's power to more manageable levels and return him to his Golden Age roots. So, during ''Comicbook/KryptoniteNevermore'', Superman loses 2/3 of his power. However, fans didn't like this revision, forcing DC to backtrack.

** Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} is Superman's cousin. She has ''all'' of his powers, and she's as powerful as him. And if that weren't enough, she has a Red Lantern Ring during the ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' story arc. In Supergirl vol. 6 #32 she says she might just be the most dangerous thing in the universe, and she is pretty right.

Then he managed to fix the intentional defect in his powers and promptly started treating the multiverse as his personal step ladder, taking on beings that wiped out universes and destroying an evil Jean Grey, before AscendingToAHigherPlaneOfExistence. Then he descended again, went toe to toe with the Dark X-Men and Dark Avengers at once, kicked their asses, then threw the fight in order to pull a XanatosGambit on Norman Osborn. If it were not for his misjudgement of the Green Goblin persona, he'd have ended Dark Reign by himself. He's lost almost all of his powers since, but he'll probably get them back some day, seeing as how many times he's already lost and regained them before.

His abilities include: super strength, invulnerability, the ability to travel through time, telepathy, telekinesis, dream-walking, teleportation, TouchOfDeath, [[EyeScream a gigantic, winged, eye-searing true form]], and immortality (he can only be killed by another angel's sword, but Castiel ramps this up by having what seems like a {{God}}-sanctioned get-out-of-death-free card). This was all well and good when he was supposed to be last only the first half of Season 4, but his [[EnsembleDarkhorse promotion to regular character]] forced writers to write in that [[DeusExitMachina angel-banishing sigil]] to make an episode fight last the entire hour. immortality. He level-up levels-up in Season 6 and become a [[CelestialParagonsAndArchangels seraph]], and exhibited the ability now able to literally [[spoiler: change the past (prevented the sinking of the Titanic and thus "created" 50,000 souls - the descendants of the people that were originally killed]], ''twice'' ([[spoiler: then re-sink it after one of the Sisters of Fate convinced him what he did was wrong]]), and managed to imprint the events as dreams in the main characters' minds (he wanted them to remember).minds. By Season 7 and 8, he also shows that he can [[TransferableMemory manipulate memory]] and has limited [[RealityWarper reality warping]] powers.



* ''Franchise/MassEffect''. [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]] can potentially obtain a ton of totally-not-super [[AppliedPhlebotinum biotic powers]], in addition to impressive weaponry. Other biotics, many of whom qualify as [[SuperSoldier Super Soldiers]] in their own right, only have a few abilities. Among the abilities a high level biotic Shepard can have: SuperSpeed, {{Telekinesis}}, [[EnergyBall Energy Balls]], [[StuffBlowingUp psychokinetic explosions]], LifeDrain, [[DeflectorShields force]] [[BarrierWarrior fields,]] TeleportSpam, and the ability to [[GravityMaster spawn a miniature black hole]]. And while most non-biotic classes rely more on skill, cool gadgets, and powerful weaponry, ''all'' classes, including the biotic ones, get SuperStrength (though only ComicBook/CaptainAmerica level), [[HealingFactor regeneration,]] and immunity to poisons.
** Although Shepard isn't TOO overpowering. They can't have all those biotic abilities at once, even if you can have a lot. Want the black hole? You can't have teleport ramming. And if you want biotic and tech abilities you can only have the basic attacks of either. Meanwhile the bonus abilities are all very powerful, but you can only have one of them. Life Drain, more shields, holographic decoy? You only get one.

* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'': Tails, Charmy, and Rouge can fly. Knuckles can punch through certain walls and glide for long distances. Vector has SuperStrength like Knuckles and a variety of {{Breath Weapon}}s including [[PlayingWithFire fire]] and [[MakeMeWannaShout deadly musical notes]]. Omega also boasts super strength and has [[MoreDakka has enough ammunition built in him to light up an army of robots]]. Amy has a hammer she can use for great attack range and to jump to incredible heights. Cream can fly and has a Chao partner who can attack from a distance. Blaze can control fire. Silver has PsychicPowers. Espio boasts a variety of {{Ninja}} abilities and [[StockNinjaWeaponry tools]] including {{Invisibility}} and exploding shurikens. And finally, Shadow can skate incredibly fast, can teleport, and can fire KiAttacks. Considering that all of Sonic's friends can run almost as fast as him, Sonic's ability to run really fast doesn't seem all that impressive in practice.
** Sonic however does gain a rather expansive array of vital abilities in later games, such as the homing attack and light dash. Then again, much of these abilities are later shared with other characters, rendering that moot.
** However, he does at the very least have the distinction of developing the most {{Super Mode}}s of anyone in the cast with the most variety as well, be they caused by Chaos Emeralds, Super Emeralds, the World Rings, Wisps, [[spoiler:Excalibur]]. Granted, a good chunk of the more recurring ones are shared with his friends as well but still.



* As of the end of Act 5 of ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'', [[spoiler: Jade has won all the Superpower Lotteries. [[AuthorCatchPhrase All of them]]. Among her friends who have achieved [[BlowYouAway mastery of the wind]], [[TimeMaster control of time]] and [[BlackMagicianGirl dominance over the arcane]], she has gained the power to control space itself (as in ''miniaturizing entire planets''), the ability to fire [[WaveMotionGun massive, planet-busting energy beams]], and [[AGodAmI whatever else comes with the power of a First Guardian]]. All of this, and the [[BadassAdorable cutest costume ever worn by someone with the title of "The Witch of Space"]].]]

That is what she gets from ''one'' of her three power sources.]]
** [[spoiler: Lately, however, a ''huge'' weakness has been brought to light. Namely, that thanks to being combined with Bec, Jade counts as an animal when it comes to the kind of "command animal" psionics that Tavros possesses. The Condesence is revealed to have developed this power as well, resulting in her seizing control of Jade as soon as the Beta kids arrived in the Alpha kid's session and turning her godlike powers against her allies.]]
** The primary villain, of course, won the Lottery even harder: [[spoiler:first off, as a cherub, he naturally has powers strong enough to affect entire worlds. Then he gains the single most powerful class in Sburb: the Lord, one of only two "Master"-level classes. Being the Lord of Time gives him time-travel powers. Then he goes god-tier, making him mostly immortal and giving him total mastery over the aspect of Time. From there the details are unclear, but his powers increased even further, giving him Absolute ''Retroactive'' Immortality (he cannot undergo a RetGone because ''time itself'' ensures his survival) and he has raw power that surpasses the First Guardians by a long shot. We still don't know the limits of his powers, but he is powerful enough to kill souls and mass-slaughter {{Eldritch Abomination}}s with impunity.]]
** John eventually acquires the greatest power of all, though he can't fully control it yet. [[spoiler:After touching Lord English's artifact, John can travel in time. Unlike other forms of time travel in the setting, John's version ''allows him to make changes to the Alpha Timeline''.]]
** Similarly, [[spoiler: Roxy Lalonde eventually gains the ability to physically materialize anything. ''Anything'', whenever she wants. While not as useful as John's SuperMode status, her powers as the Rogue of Void are so great that TheDragon wants them]].
** Jake has the potential to be one of, if not the most, powerful character in the comic due to being a Page of Hope. Hope is one of the most powerful aspects a player can have, and the Page class gives the player MagikarpPower. [[spoiler: In one doomed timeline where his true powers were unlocked, he managed to easily over power a brainwashed Jade and was shown to have the power to make imaginary things temporarily real by suppressing their fakeness attribute, allowing him to bring to life a copy of Dirk with all of the real Dirk's powers.]] This is why the BigBad considers him to be a WorthyOpponent.

In ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', [[spoiler: a family of Waterbenders can Bloodbend in broad daylight, which Amon uses to permanently block other benders from using their powers, as well as dodge or divert any attack that would hit him, without the tell-all motions that would let someone know he was bending]]. In Season 3, Lavabending is added to Earth's roster.

** His minion Vanilla Ice got an even greater power, though. His Stand, Cream, has the power to annihilate anything it touches, swallow its user for protection (without harming him), turn invisible, and fly at great speed. It has one huge weakness, though, that makes it not as strong as The World. Vanilla Ice and his stand can't see while they're inside the void, so he has to pop out occasionally to see where his opponents are.

** Kurogiri/Blackmist power is MassTeleportation. But it's just so damn rare and useful, having it immediately grants him VetinariJobSecurity in the League of Villains.
** Chisaki/Overhaul's power is TouchOfDeath and HealingHands in one package. With a touch, he can either blow up his victim, killing them instantly, or reconstruct their body, healing them instantly. It's ''so'' powerful he can heal someone who's microseconds away from death back to full performance, like Rappa who challenged him, get blown up for his troubles and restored in an instant just to make a point. His power also works on nonliving matter, allowing him to warp the landscape for combat. And in a pinch, [[spoiler: he can go OneWingedAngel by fusing himself with his subordinate using his power.]]

* In the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime, May's Munchlax uses Metronome, which allows it to learn random moves. Sometimes they are useful, sometimes not. Sometimes they are useful, but it misuses them (like learning Extreme Speed from an Arcanine, and abusing it to pick and gorge on berries). Sometimes they are unexpected, but happen to work out (like learning Rest during a Contest, and getting serious Cute votes from the judges).
** And on one occasion, it was just weird. While confused, Munchlax used Metronome and learned ''Splash'', the most useless attacking move in the Pokémon world.
