** Nanoha and Fate became the overpowered mages they are by [[TrainingFromHell training a lot]]. Hayate, who received the power and spells of the [[TomeOfEldritchLore Book of Darkness]] after she became its Master, beats them both in raw magical strength (but because she skipped the basics she suffers from AceLightningSyndrome).
** While training is responsible for much of Nanoha and Fate's crazy power level, a large portion of it is due to their [[AppliedPhlebotinum Velka Cartridge Systems]], which fall somewhere in between Upgrade Artifacts and ''normal'' old [[MidSeasonUpgrade Mid-Season Upgrades]].

Naturally, the episode's villain ''also'' acquires a piece, and uses it to commit CarmenSandiego-scale acts of theft. Rubber Bando!

* All of the weapons in ''{{Drakengard}}'' come with a magical spell the protagonist can use perfectly once he equips the weapon. He can also use a variety of weapons and weapon styles perfectly, but that's [[HandWave probably because he's a]] BadassNormal.
* In the ''{{Metroid}}'' series of games, not only does Samus acquire new powers and skills by collecting artifacts, she often [[BagOfSpilling loses these artifacts]] and has to collect them all over again.
