** Giorno Giovanna's Gold Experience in particular is noted for an especially versatile Stand. It revolves around giving life to things, and beyond the obvious [[TheMedic healing applications]], can also transform inorganic objects into plants and animals, speed up the life cycle of certain living things, and hit people to speed up their thought processes and disorient them.

Star Platinum, Jotaro's stand, has a range of two meters, SuperSenses, SuperSpeed, SuperStrength, high precision, and the famous RapidFireFistcuffs; also, like most stands, it's an intangible manifestation of the user's soul. Jotaro abuses this latter fact to steal exercise equipment, beer, and magazines ''[[ImpossibleThief while locked in a jail cell]]'', talk to people underwater (through Star Platinum's mouth), [[FingerPokeOfDoom poke people with the force of a gunshot]] by ''[[YourMindMakesItReal thinking]]'' all his Stand Power into Star Platinum's index finger and extending it to the edge of his range, [[MundaneUtility get drinks, reach things more than an arm's length away]], increase his durability by having Star Platinum block attacks from inside his body, [[spoiler:stop and restart hearts]], draw incredibly detailed pictures in the span of about a minute, see microscopic and far-off objects, and do brain surgery.

* Cole from ''VideoGame/InFamous'' has electricity powers, but they're of the StaticShock type below: he can use electricity to create shackles that hold people to the ground, electric hand grenades, a physical shield that converts projectiles to energy, hover jets, mini electric rockets, small shockwaves, drop with a large electric shockwave, blades of electricity, heal others, summong a lightning storm and, particularly egre... oddly, [[spoiler:eventually time travel]].

* ''StaticShock'''s [[LightningCanDoAnything electricity]] in the animated series did things lightning bolts simply should not do. Like carry people and sensitive equipment with ''bolts of lightning'' without damaging them, as well as ''creating forcefields''. He regularly pulled out some new, increasingly infeasible trick about every other episode.

* Konoko from Bungie's ''{{Oni}}'' has a "hyper-evolved" form of cancer that actually replaces tissue up to and including entire ''organs'' as they are stressed or damaged, with the attributes needed to survive the stress or damage. That is, if the damage in question doesn't immediately kill her: she regenerates fast enough to survive in acid and be immune to invasive surgery but being stuck in a grinding machine is still fatal. Justified in that said symbiote was designed specifically to make the host capable of survival in a catastrophically polluted Earth. On the other hand, the symbiote is [[AGodAmI not entirely sane]] and may try to [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind hijack]] the body, with the [[BodyHorror Daodan Imago form]] [[BigBad Muro]] [[OneWingedAngel transforms into]] implied to be the result.

Often confused with ComboPlatterPowers where a character is simply given multiple unrelated powers rather than using variations on a theme (like Superman's Flight AND Laser Eyes, or [[Franchise/{{X-Men}} Emma Frost's]] telepathy AND diamond form.)

* Lifeguard of the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' had the superpower of spontaneously developing whatever additional superpower was required at any given moment, although only if somebody's life was in danger. ''Somebody other than herself,'' and the power to save a particular life and the power to kick the enemy's butt aren't always the same.

* Donquixote Doflamingo is great at showing how utterly versatile strings can be. Offense? [[RazorFloss Cutting]], [[WhipItGood Whips]], [[AbnormalAmmo Bullets]], [[PeoplePuppets Puppetry]]... Defense? [[AllWebbedUp Web Shields]], [[ActuallyADoombot Decoys]]... Mobility? [[NotQuiteFlight String roads attached to the clouds]]... Healing? [[SelfSurgery Internal wound stitching]]...

** Viola from the Dressrosa arc can form 'goggles' with her fingers. This gives her x-ray vision (perfectly logical), clairvoyance (still logical), telepathy (a reasonable extension of eye powers) and the ability to make her tears into giant whale figures to crush her enemies with (...).

* Trauma from Comicbook/AvengersTheInitiative comics can [[EmpathicShapeshifter become anybody's worst fear]]. Literally, he doesn't just take on the appearance of their greatest fear, but the abilities as well. If their fear happens to be TheMightyThor or the Comicbook/IncredibleHulk well... that person should run. Also, he became a therapist. Turning into your patients' greatest terrors and making them face it is an intriguing method.

* ''PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'': Mami Tomoe has the power to create and manipulate ribbons. While she can use this to bind and bludgeon her enemies, she somehow figured out how to take her ribbons and create musket rifles out of them. In ''[[PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion The Rebellion Story]]'', she can make her ribbons phantasmal ''(so she can render [[spoiler:Homura's time manipulation]] useless by way of [[spoiler:touching her]])'' and can actually create a [[spoiler:perfect decoy clone that explodes when damaged]] out of her ribbons when she fights [[spoiler:Homura Akemi]].

* The "{{Shazam}}" Captain Marvel, in the PostCrisis stories, has learned that the lightning bolt he uses to change [[LightningCanDoAnything can have other uses]]. For instance, it can break spells imposed on the Marvels in their human form, and can power up equipment if it's [[TimTaylorTechnology hardy enough to absorb so much energy suddenly]]. It's a powerful attack if they say their magic word close to an enemy and dodge the resulting bolt, causing it to hit their opponent instead (as seen in ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'' and {{homage}}d in both ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' where Marvel lost because he failed to dodge it and ''MortalKombat vs. [[TheDCU DC Universe]]'' as a [[FinishingMove heroic brutality]] and a grab move). It can even be used as a MagicalDefibrillator, providing there are two Marvels, one to call down the lightning, and one to absorb it safely; otherwise this works [[OhCrap the same as the attack]]. That, or have [[NighInvulnerable a physiology that can stand up to the power]] of the lightning (which is how [[spoiler:Black Adam saved Atom Smasher, whose body [[HealingFactor regrows itself]] when he changes height and so could deal with the power]]).
