** If you're going to count Chiaotzu and #16, shouldn't Vegeta's HeroicSacrifice against Majin Buu count as well?

* In ''ZettaiKarenChildren'', Kaoru is nearly killed when her psychic powers begin to go haywire, slamming a helicopter carrying herself and others into a building and being crushed on the ground by the weight of her power. She's saved when her supervisor shows something similar to ThePowerOfFriendship; she has the guts to then stop her own heart, resulting in the cancellation of the meltdown.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/SuperPowereds'', this is a problem for any Powered (Supers with PowerIncontinence) with a strong enough ability. Some are only an inconvenience to themselves (e.g. a girl who levitates when experiencing a strong emotion or a guy who randomly teleports when sneezing), while others can threaten a large group of people (e.g. a guy who can accidentally cause a state-wide blackout by absorbing all that electricity, necessitating that he be kept in total isolation in order to slowly bleed off that energy or a guy who unintentionally causes the laws of probability to be in flux around him).

Added DiffLines:

*** This could be weaponized by Fabian Cortez, one-time second-in-command for ComicBook/{{Magneto}}. His mutant ability focused around modifying the powers of other mutants, which could cause cellular damage if ramped up too high. In fact, he attempted to kill [[spoiler: Magneto himself]] by causing all of his victim's powers to flare out as much as possible.

* The 1980's revival of "The Twilight Zone" had a story about a traumatized Vietnam War veteran with the power to make his thoughts come to life. It worked best when he was dreaming, but all his dreams were about horrific battles. It got messy.

** In the game's backstory, Overbrook (now called "Faultline") was [[spoiler: supposedly]] leveled by the earthquake machines of an archvillain known as Faultine. [[spoiler: In truth, though, Faultline was a mutant hero who wouldn't have needed them; a villain named PsyCurse used a gadget known as the PsychoChronoMetron to rewrite Faultline into a villain. Unfortunately, feedback from the PsychoChronoMetron caused Faultline to lose control of his powers, resulting in the earthquake that leveled Overbrook. .]]

* Manbot in ''FreedomForce'' had this as his FatalFlaw: his power made him prone to causing violent explosions, one of which killed his brother after making him a containment suit.
* Ultima, the BigBad of ''FinalFantasyTactics'', tries to once again go OneWingedAngel on Ramza's team after having its prior seraphim and skeleton-angel forms trashed. Too bad large explosions aren't exactly EnergyBeings.

* In ''WorldOfWarcraft'', [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Deathwing]], the former Dragon Aspect of the Earth, had stolen power from the other four Dragon Aspects. However, this much power nearly rips apart his body, forcing him to have goblins weld [[{{Unobtainium}} adamantium]] plates to his body in order to keep it intact.

** A fairly common problem for [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} mutants]], especially when their powers first manifest since most of them have no idea that they even ''are'' mutants, much less any advance warning of what powers they have. Can also occur if physical or psychological trauma causes an individual to lose control of their powers.

* Franchise/{{Godzilla}} is going through one of these in ''Film/GodzillaVsDestoroyah'', causing him to glow red and be perpetually angry. Also, there's a fear that his literal [[ILoveNuclearPower meltdown]] will probably [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt blow up the atmosphere]]. Luckily, all this radiation is absorbed by Godzilla Junior, mutating him into [[LegacyCharacter the next Godzilla]], so that's okay.
** The Super-X3 thankfully also kept the now dead Godzilla's energy from rising high enough to burn the atmosphere, which if it had then Godzilla Junior's body would have burned up before it could save the city from the fallout. So man saves the world, and unwittingly a dead body, and the dead body saves Tokyo from the radiation and is brought back to life.

* In ''Anime/ProjectK'' when a King uses a considerable amount of power their abilities start to get more and more out of hand, until eventually their Swords of Damocles begin falling apart and eventually crash to the ground, causing catastrophic damages.

In the backstory, this already happened to the previous Red King Genji Kagutsu. The result of his Democles Down resulted in a ''100 km'' wide radius of Japan getting a bite chewed out of it that is known as the Kagutsu Crater. Twice this becomes a possibility of happening again. First in season one, Mikoto Suoh (then current Red King) is pushing his limits [[spoiler: and ultimately breaks them, resulting in Reisi Munakata, the Blue King, having to [[KillTheOnesYouLove kill him]] before a new crater incident.]] And then in season two [[spoiler: ''Reisi'', suffering from the backlash mentally, emotionally, and power wise from the previous incident, starts to risk having that happen.]]
