Becoming truly skilled at something takes a long time and a lot of hard work. Sometimes, you can handle this with a TrainingMontage, but the plot doesn't always have enough time for this. So, how DO you go about transforming your UnluckyEverydude into a BadAss SuperHero in less than an hour?

* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' and other cyberpunk [[TabletopGames tabletop roleplaying games]] use "skill softs" and linguasofts, datachips containing memories and trained reflexes or foreign languages copied from a donor and uploaded into the recipient's brain via a datajack. For physical skills like combat or piano playing, it's necessary to install a skill wire cyber system into the body's nervous system and limbs which basically remote-controls the body and overwrites its reflexes with new ones while the skill chip is activated. In ''{{GURPS}} Cyberpunk'', "slave chips" can be used to paralyze a subject (usually a prisoner) or overwrite his personality with a new subservient one, for example to turn someone into a sex slave.

** 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]].

Obviously, a natural result of PowersAsPrograms. Compare AmplifierArtifact and, for video games, HeartContainer. Contrast ExpomarsitionBeam, when this is done with memories.

* In the ''Westernanimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' episode "It's a Bird, It's Insane, It's Dale!", the eponymous Dale comes into possession of an alien rock that cause anyone who comes in contact with it to become stretchy and bouncy. Naturally, the episode's villain ''also'' acquires a piece, and uses it to commit CarmenSandiego-scale acts of theft. Rubber Bando!
