*** The Second Hokage explains that when a Uchiha feels strong emotions, usually grief or rage, it causes their brain to generate a unique type of chakra. This chakra mutates the eyes into Sharingan.

* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' uses the aforementioned examples from its source material for Goku and Trunks, but puts on a twist for ''Episode of Bardock Abridged''. It's not a HeroicSacrifice that triggers Bardock going Super Saiyan, but the realization that his story's plot involves TimeTravel.

* As mentioned above, the ''Film/{{X-Men}}'' movie franchise has many examples.
** In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Erik is originally only able to use his powers when extremely angry. The first two times, it involves maternal separation.
** Then there is Logan's awakening in ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' when he stabs his father's killer to death.
** Invoked by [[BigBad Ajax]] in ''Film/{{Deadpool}}''. His SuperSoldier factory works by grabbing people, pumping them full of a mutant gene kickstarting serum, and then torturing them until the trauma gives them superpowers (or they die, whichever comes first). Deadpool's powers get activated when he is deprived oxygen for an entire night.

* In ''Literature/TheGirlFromTheMiraclesDistrict'', berserkerism is unnoticeable until the person carrying the gene goes through major physical or emotional trauma, whereupon it manifests and becomes a perpetual problem to keep in check. It doesn't necessarily show up right away - Nikita mentions that she only turned berserk a day after she'd been rescued from her father, when she had nightmares about what'd happened.

* ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'': {{Mad Scientist}}s tend to awaken to their full potential due to a variety of factors. Danger is a big one, as is the laughter of fools (typically "those fools at the Institute"), but almost anything can be the straw that breaks the camel's back. Helen herself snapped at an Italian bistro and caused more destruction than two other examples who snapped in a chemistry lab and a nuclear power plant. ("That certainly was a killer pesto, wasn't it Narbon?")

** It turns out that there's a completely justified reason for this, [[BlueAndOrangeMorality depending on who you ask.]] [[spoiler: The Entities need data on each superpower-granting shard they release, and the best way to get that data is in combat. The shards are thus engineered to only activate when the host is in extreme danger, increasing the chances that they'll end up in situations where the host will be fighting or will be psychologically-damaged enough to go out and cause trouble and thus start fighting.]]

* [[ComicBook/{{Empowered}} Adam Warren]]'s run as writer of ''ComicBook/{{Gen13}}'' introduced Leslie, a.k.a. "Trauma Queen", a member of another SecretProjectRefugeeFamily who had a variation of this trope: she was able to use her memories of traumatic experiences to activate a wide variety of superpowers. In Warren's last issue, Leslie invoked the memory of when one of the secret project's scientists proposed inflicting more intense trauma on her to make her more powerful[[note]]This specific memory allows her to read the mind of a rogue project scientist to locate a MacGuffin[[/note]].
