** Lala is gifted with alien technology and is constantly making gadgets which give little concepts like conservation of energy and mass the middle finger. The gadgets she makes are mundane things like a hairpin for instant clothes, or a bottomless soap dispenser. (Incidentally, the biggest reason she hadn't been allowed to revolutionize Earth technology is due to her habit of cutting corners in QA, only for the gadget to go wrong in [[PowerPerversionPotential the most perverted way imaginable]].)

* ''Manga/AneNaruMono'' ("An Elder Sister"): The Lovecraftian-horror Chiyo can use her tentacles in many ways: forming hair, clothes, or unstoppably sharp knives, [[spoiler: even for killing an infestation of black-magic rats.]]

* In one ''Manga/TenchiMuyo'' chapter, Ryoko uses her energy blasts to fry fish. The fish is destroyed by a third party before anyone can see if this simple form of cooking gets around her normal LethalChef tendencies (though it would be lethal to anyone standing too close to the fish being cooked).

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', Zoro vigorously complains about using his swords to drop a heated rock into a soup pot. At one point he also uses santoryuu (three-sword style, with one in his mouth) to clean the floor with three mops. Robin uses her extra limbs to read more easily and carry pieces of Island Cloud out while digging a hole in Skypiea, Luffy's rubber powers allow him to [[BigEater eat more]] by stretching his stomach, [[PlayingWithFire Ace]] lights Sanji's cigarette, Magellan's favorite food is poison, and Wapol's cover story shows he made a living by using his [[ExtremeOmnivore powers]] to turn trash into toys and selling them, becoming a millionaire in the process.

* Most characters within ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' find at least one boringly mundane thing to use their Nen-related talents on (take Killua and Gon: antique wheelers and dealers with absolutely no experience, but plenty of Nen-sight to bridge the talent-spotting knowledge gap!). But, the king of the trope in the whole series has to be Hisoka -- he can make it both very mundane, yet incredibly plot-relevant at the same time. He makes a point of downplaying a lot of what his Bungee Gum and various rubber techniques can do even in battle, so it's justified by him mostly emphasising mundane things outside it, too -- from hoiking things in the middle distance towards him, to hiding stuff in plain sight, to band-aiding up in a hurry, using it to pen haiku (yup), shoving patterns on his skin (and, you wondered how he puts makeup on), creating silly shapes that move as part of a joke... loads of stuff. All of which become either very deadly or dead necessary when others least expect it.

** Deconstructed when she tries to cook food using her fire breath and predictably ends up burning it to a crisp. She didn't use the stove because "it lacks firepower."
