* Much like in ''Sidekicks'', people in ''Webcomic/UnOrdinary'' are only born with a [[OnePersonOnePower single special ability]] and this has been explicitly shown to directly affect how powerful a person is.
** The god-tiers, people who have a [[PowerLevels special ability level]] of 6.0 or above, are the clear winners of the superpower lottery, so much so, the WordOfGod stated that only a god-tier can defeat another god-tier.

** Sagume Kishin, one of the superpower lottery's losers is also one of its most powerful winners. First of all there's the fact that she's a [[{{Lunarians}} Lunarian]] [[PhysicalGod Half-Goddess]] [[{{Youkai}} Half-Amanojaku]]. Lunarians are, as a rule, ''leagues'' stronger than Earthlings and, as one of the Heavenly Gods residing on the Moon, she's also leagues more powerful than any gods of the Earth. Then her Half-Amanojaku nature kicks in... Amanojaku are {{Commander Contrarian}}s and {{Consummate Liar}}s who live to be hated. What this translates to is that she's a Goddess that [[CosmicPlaything the universe itself hates so much]] that it conspires to make everything she says a lie by reversing any situation or event that she talks about... Sagume herself acknowledges that [[BlessedWithSuck the power to reverse any situation with but a few words is horrifically dangerous]] and, consequently, [[TheQuietOne speaks as little as possible]], carefully thinks through what she wants to say before she says it and even [[CharacterTic covers her mouth at all times]].

* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'': Tails and Rouge can fly. Knuckles can punch through certain walls and glide for long distances. 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. 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 also has a habit 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]]...

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', most of the Titans are deformed and mindless creatures. However, there exist a handful that ''definitely'' hit the jackpot, possessing powers far beyond the norm. The Colossal Titan is 4 times the normal size, with the ability to generate pressurized blasts of super-heated steam to ward off attackers. The Armored Titan is, as its name suggests, covered in hardened skin capable of shrugging off cannon fire and possesses incredible physical strength to match. The Female Titan can [[InstantArmor crystallize her skin]] to cover its one weak spot, shatter the swords of the human soliders attacking it or to add extra power to its attacks. And finally, the Rogue Titan encountered in Trost possesses SuperStrength. This is because [[spoiler: all four are really humans with the power to transform into Titans]], but their abilities are far beyond those possessed by the others seen so far.

*** Kyabe from Universe 6 is a minor example. Although he's unable to go Super Saiyan, he's base form is equal to Vegeta, after he has been training with Whis and trained in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber for three years, which makes Kyabe many times stronger than the next strongest Saiyan, Gohan. After Vegeta beats him up and pushes him to his RageBreakingPoint, he ascends to Super Saiyan.

* While most human traits aren't really considered superpowers, the genetic lottery and life circumstances (the birth lottery, for example) has an enormous influence on what we become (whether you are [[SmartGuy smart]], [[RidiculouslyAverageGuy average looking]], or have a [[{{Jerkass}} crappy personality]]), what we do well at, and [[HardWorkHardlyWorks what we do badly]]. Some people naturally are [[BornWinner Born Winners]].

* In ''Manga/D.Grayman'' this seems ot be a prerequisite for the noah family. Between the ability to manipulate matter at will, the ability to create whatver you imagine, the ability to turn into whatever you want even things that don't exist... exorcists CAn be jealous.

** Frieza was ''born'' extremely powerful. The monster we saw on Namek was a mutant who never had to trained to obtain his power unlike the main characters up to that point. When he does finally trains in ''Resurrection 'F'' he's able to surpass ''Goku'' in raw might, whose power are almost on par with [[PhysicalGod Beerus]], in just four months in-universe. He also have extreme survivability. He can live in space without the need to breath and live even if he's sliced into pieces.

** Buu at his weakest was better than Cell at his strongest (Cell was a near match for a Super Saiyan 2 after returning from his near-death experience, Buu laughably outclassed them and could keep reasonable pace with Super Saiyan 3s). Like Cell, Buu could regenerate, and took it UpToEleven (his individual atoms were sufficient to resurrect him in seconds). He also had [[CannibalismSuperpower the ability to absorb other beings]], gaining their abilities, strength, and skills... which he abused the hell out of. On top of that, he was also magical - pretty much a low-level RealityWarper, with the ability to turn just about anyone into just about anything ([[BigEater usually food]]). Once he'd gotten the ball rolling, the only being in the entire universe able to stand against him was Vegito, a fusion of the two strongest warriors on the planet.

* Midnight from ''Manga/FairyTail''. His "Reflector" magic is basically a carbon copy of [[LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex Accelerator's]] esper power with the added twist of letting him bend the light entering a person's eyes to create inescapable illusions just like [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Aizen]]. No doubt about it, he's [[StoryBreakerPower quite powerful]] and the strongest member of the Oracion Seis sans Brain's SuperpoweredEvilSide Zero. Though, to be fair, it does have two [[KryptoniteFactor loopholes]] that make it even remotely possible for someone to defeat him. The first one get's around Accelerator's power set: [[spoiler:he can't "reflect" living things (i.e. people's bodies).]] The other one is that [[spoiler: he can't reflect attacks if he's using his powers on something else.]] After the {{Timeskip}}, he added [[CastingAShadow Darkness]] magic to the mix, which gets around the first weakness and he combine it with his "Reflector" to create {{Unblockable Attack}}s.

** Skakdi are a violent race of savages that have access to one of the ElementalPowers (though only when [[TeethClenchedTeamwork working together]]), one specific vision-power (laser vision, telescopic vision, etc), and have yet another, random power unique to the specimen -- like AdaptiveAbility or being able to conjure cages made out of literally ''anything'' at will. One Skakdi, Zaktan, became a [[WormThatWalks mass of microscopic insects]] due to an accident, and could thus fly, shape-shift, seep through holes, and attack in the form of an angry swarm. Their toys also came with [[SwissArmyWeapon multi-functional weapons]] and the ''BIONICLE'' equivalent of guns! Fans complained so much that the following year's villains had to be vastly de-powered, though no less threatening thanks to intelligence.

** Even among the Noah Road particularly stands out. She is a reality warper that is basically almighty in her dream dimension. And she can drain people in this dimension by mere sight. Oh, and if you attack her you won't even hurt her as this is not her realy body. Meanin that if she really wants to destroy you an is not playing some game (luckily she always is) she is basically unvulnerable.

** Freed can write runes that can trap people in forcefields that will only let victims out if they can fulfill a specific condition, and will severely punish them if they "break the rules". It's main weakness is the fact the more complicated and powerful enchantments take time to set up and are impractical in the heat of battle.
