*** The Red Son later demonstrates what someone with powers like his is really capable of by singlehandledly reshaping the global balance of power and geopolitics in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (approximately, as Frigga puts it, half a continent), despite the attempts of the likes of Charles Xavier to undo what he's been doing, in the space of less than two weeks. This, along with the repeated emphasis that he holds back each and every moment of each and every day, just in case, suggests some scary, scary things.

*** And after that, she ''still'' usually holds back... and later proves capable of [[spoiler: ripping a hole through space and time to wear Harry is]] on pure ''instinct'' - which Carol remarks is another mark on the list of 'things that make you [Jean] a terrifying super badass' - and then [[spoiler: containing Harry and her equally powerful twin sister, Maddie.]]

* Chinese renminbi. The government enforces that the exchange rate of renminbi is lower than its real value. The purpose is to make Chinese goods very cheap when exported. So far it has been SuperEffective. It's also so they can make sure the money in the hands of their populace (from what little wage they make) is practically worthless and has no buying power.

* Tennyo, in the WhateleyUniverse, is doing this now. Over Christmas, when she went all out to save her family, she ripped a hole in space-time which ''kept getting bigger'', and she shredded an auditorium with her RealityWarper abilities, and she made a huge area radioactive too. Oops. So she's deliberately toning it down now.

* Princess Celestia in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is always portrayed as being extremely powerful (one of her royal duties is ''commanding the sun''), but the episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E10ARoyalProblem A Royal Problem]] implies that she holds back considerably because she's actually ''afraid'' of just how dangerous she could be if she let herself go.

** In a season two episode of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', Shou Marufuji/Syrus Truesdale removes Power Bond (a spell card that doubles a Machine-type Fusion monster's attack power, then [[PowerAtAPrice cuts the user's life points by that monster's original attack]]) from his deck to prove he can still win without it.

** In one episode of ''[[Anime/YuGiOhARCV Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V]]'', Yuri elects not to use his regular deck against Asuka, instead choosing to use a deck he's never used before, just to show what a genius he is. Played with near the end of the duel, where it reveals that he not only ''does'' now the deck well, but he changed the deck up and improved it. He was just pretending to be weak to [[TheGadfly troll]] Asuka, and calls her an idiot for believing him.
