Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/CaptainSNES'' has the Sovereign of Sorrow, who can grant upgrade and enhance a sprite's nature. Unfortunately, the Sovereign tends to break the minds of her victims, either revealing unsettling truths about the nature of their reality and filling them with nihilism, or making them unhinged and murderous. It's a bad touch by Vorlons.

** As it turns out, [[spoiler: the existence of ninjas itself is this. A significant chunk of humans are born with chakra because their lineages trace back to Kaguya Otsutsuki, an alien who imbued herself with the 10 tail tree's power which became an inheritable trait.]]

* In ''TransformersEnergon'', the human boy Kicker (Yes, Kicker. Is it any wonder he hates his father?) had a run-in with Primus earlier in his life that gave him the ability to sense Energon, which basically turns him into a walking MacGuffin. This makes him all angsty and stuff.

* In ''TrinityBlood'', the Inquisition uses a special chemical to give them a brief moment of Vampire level speed and strength. The anime never states it, but the original books mention that the chemical is injected inside their suits, so the anime most likely [[LawOfConservationOfDetail never got around to showing this since it wasn't greatly important]].

* The Protoss and the Zerg of StarCraft are this. Before the game began, there were these beings called Xel'naga who uplifted them both by giving one with "Purity of Form", and the other with "Purity of Essence". [[spoiler: The Xel'naga wished to have these two races [[FusionDance merge]] in the future so that they will make the new iteration of their race.]] ''Legacy of the Void'' reveals that [[spoiler:the Xel'naga normally don't do this. A key part of the cycle is letting the races achieve these qualities on their own to ensure that they are worthy successors to the Xel'nagas' responsibilities. Amon and his rogue faction of Xel'naga uplifted the Protoss and the Zerg as part of a long-running scheme to break the cycle forever.]]

* [[Literature/{{Dragons}} The Last Dragon Chronicles]]: When the Fain commingle with people, they tend to leave quite a bit of residue behind.
* Mike Smith in StrangerInAStrangeLand is a textbook example. He was raised by Martians, which imbued him with certain powers like levitation and the ability to wipe things out of existence with his mind. By the end of the book, [[spoiler: he has established a school/cult that teaches others the martian language and culture, which in turn gives them these abilities.]]
* ''Literature/SholanAlliance'': Having had his telepathic abilities destroyed by an implant, the Cabbarans help repair the damage, as well as installing some ''improvements''. Once he's on the path to being 'fully powered up', he is able to detect some surveilance devices and destroy them with a thought.

* In HunterXHunter, [[FunctionalMagic Nen ability]] can be gained by a process called Nen Baptism, which is basically direct exposure to Nen by a Nen user. The other method is through [[ReligionIsMagic meditation and prayer]], and can take years.

* In Creator/AnneMcCaffrey's ''{{Petaybee}}'' series: Most of Petaybee's population over a certain age had been modified by the planet, itself, to live comfortably on the planet's sub-Arctic climate -- with the nasty drawback that, once so adapted, any prolonged absence from the planet's surface (as little as a couple of days) ends with complete organ shutdown and death. Sean Shongili was further altered to be able to transform into a seal-like creature (The reason why isn't really explored to any depth)
