* Ben had various Ultimate Modes for his aliens thanks to the Ultimatrix in ''Ben10UltimateAlien''. The only known drawback was that the Ultimate forms developed personalities and thoughts of their own, which Azmuth eventually dealt with. Ben loses this power, however, when he receives a new Omnitrix and the Ultimatrix was, by WordOfGod, destroyed before ''Ben10Omniverse''.

Added DiffLines:

* Super modes are nothing new in ''VideoGame/SenranKagura'', though early on they were typically restricted to plot-mandated stages, only a few characters had them, and the only one who could access hers reliably was Homura. Later games gave them to more characters, and made them easier to access, [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration going along with the girls becoming more experienced each game]]. ''Estival Versus'' finally standardized their use in gameplay - each team leader (Asuka, Homura, Yumi, Miyabi, and Ryoki) can access their super mode using their Super Secret Ninja Art, beginning with a powerful attack and gaining invincibility and better combos for about 30 seconds. Despite what the plot would have you believe, they're actually best used for mowing down hordes, since the boss AI [[DevelopersForesight was programmed to be aware of its properties]] and will spam their own Secret Ninja Arts, or anything else with invincibility frames, just to [[SpitefulAI run down the clock and stop you cheesing the fight]].

* Game mechanic of Privateer Press's {{Monsterpocalypse}}. Here called Hyper Mode (and with Ultra, Mega, and Quantum variants, depending on rarity), you attempt to accumulate Power Dice by securing (or crushing) buildings, holding power zones, destroying units, etc. When you have enough, your monster can go Hyper, gaining different stats. Generally, these are improved, though some have lower defense or health and drastically altered powers, resulting less in a power up and more in a significant strategy change. You can be dropped out of Hyper Mode by certain attacks (including a [[TapOnTheHead Headbutt]]) or drop out willingly (useful if your Alpha has higher defense). You also enter Hyper Mode automatically when your Alpha mode is depleted of health, resulting in something like TurnsRed.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/MobPsycho100'', Mob generally tries to keep his emotions down to avoid hurting people with his Psychic Powers. But if his emotional volatility builds high enough, he enters 100% Mode, which alters his powers, behavior, and sometimes even his appearance based on what emotion he's feeling most strongly at the time, such as 100% Rage, 100% Sadness, 100% Gratitude, etc.

* 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.

* ''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]]]].
