* Played straight and defied in ''[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-28404-78/DianeCastle+Xendra.htm Xendra]]''. After season 3, Buffy uses her super strength in construction work (once Xander brings his boss in on TheMasquerade) but when Willow suggest [[GenderBender changing]] Xander into Xendra and back to heal some minor injuries[[note]]Changing into either form fully heals Xander of any injuries he had in the other form[[/note]], Xander declines stating that eventually they'll have to pay a price for that magic and using it for every little thing will only make said price steeper.

* In ''FanFic/ThisBites'', Soundbite's Gastro-Blast technique is a devastating attack that no human should be able to survive. It shatters bones and steel with a blast of pure sound...and can also be used to make a steak so tender that it literally melts in your mouth.

* Robin realizes just what kind of man Luffy is in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11961369/13/Blood-Man-Luffy Blood Man Luffy]]'' when his first reaction to her powers is how she could give herself backrubs whenever she wanted.
* In an omake for ''Fanfic/NineMinutes'', Usopp accidentally combined the Soap Soap Fruit with the ship's mop. As a result, the crew has the perfect cleaning implement.

* After becoming a unicorn in ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/8553/retired-to-equestria Retired to Equestria]]'' Gallus Blueflame, former enemy of (retired) EvilOverlord Damien, uses his namesake to form fingers so he can play a violin the way he's used to rather than the way ponies do.

** This actually manages to be a double case as the crystal Harry uses for his lightsaber is the Philosopher's Stone.
* In ''[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/story.php?no=31969 Vacation Means Chaos]]'', both Steve Rogers and one of [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Xander's Slayers]] use their super strength to clean up rubble after the Chitauri Invasion. At one point Xander suggests having the Hulk demolish a couple buildings that need to come down as not only would it take weeks to clear the rubble enough to get a wrecking ball in, but it'd let the big guy have some fun smashing things without anyone getting upset.



-->"I've never actually hit anyone with it at level ten, but I tried it on a steak once. Vibrated the thing so hard the meat not only cooked to medium rare, but I ended up with quite possibly the most tender cut of beef you could imagine as the connective tissues and bones were practically liquefied." A gruesomely amused grin crossed the man's face. "I could cut it with a plastic fork. Can you imagine what it would do to a human body?"

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'']]
* In the ''Fanfic/TranscendenceAU'', Dipper becomes an immensely powerful dream demon, who could probably bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt within a few years of [[RealityWarper gaining his powers]] if he felt like it. Instead, he spends most of his time hanging around his sister and her husband at the Shack, where they summon him with great frequency (to the point where he gives out a separate circle to friends and family) and make [[DealWithTheDevil deals]] for things like candy in exchange for doing the dishes or transportation, or a few raw steaks in exchange for babysitting the kids. This trait isn't limited to people who know of his human side, either; there has been at least one incident of someone [[http://transcendence-au.tumblr.com/tagged/cassie summoning him for help with math homework.]]



** In the chapter that we really see the new haunted mansion headquarters for the Shadow Hand, we see a Shadowkhan vacuuming, showing that Jade uses her Mooks for chores.

chores. This is referenced again several chapters later, when another Shadowkhan is seen dusting a chandelier.
* In ''FanFic/QueenOfShadows'', Jade at one point wonders if the Shadowkhan use their bladed weapons to help tend to the Fortress' gardens.



* In possibly one of the biggest examples of misuse of Divine Power, Excolotis from ''WesternAnimation/IAmWar'' uses his innate abilities as the WarGod to beat Twilight at a game of darts.

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fans love to depict various powers used for mundane or silly reasons. Even beyond all those mentioned in the Video Games subpage, Suika using her manipulation of density to collect small things - and growing to giant size to easily collect lumber ''by plucking whole trees as though they were carrots'' - Aya using her SuperSpeed to aid in her role as the local IntrepidReporter, [[AnIcePerson Cirno]] being used as air conditioning, [[RealityWarper Yukari]] using her gaps for [[ItAmusedMe pranks]], and many, many other variations exist.

* When Harry gives his new lightsaber to Dobby (at least partially because it's pink) in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11157943/13/I-Still-Haven-t-Found-What-I-m-Looking-For I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For]]'', Dobby figures it'll only be useful for slicing bread and making toast at the same time.
