* Examples found in ''Fanfic/HellsisterTrilogy'':
** Superman finds a new use for his super-breath:
--->Clark Kent, in a black tux, held onto Lois with one arm, waved with the other, and winked at Linda. She smiled shyly at him. Linda didn't have to guess whose super-breath had guided those flowers just where he'd wanted them.
** Dev-Em uses his heat-vision to burn the sleep out of his eyes.
--->"Kara?", he mumbled, using heat-vision to get the sleep out of his eyes and hoping he didn't burn the furniture.

* In ''[[FanFic/AradsStardust Stardust]]'', this describes [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Twilight Sparkle's]] use of her powers, to the bemusement of [[VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown XCOM]]. Telekinesis that can crush a Chryssalid to a smear in one pulse or drive solid steel two inches into concrete? She uses it for tidying up after herself. A spell that renders the target completely silent, so even their actions make no noise? Perfect for silencing an annoying woman teasing you. Inverted in that X-Com is at least considering trying to weaponize any spell that seems it might be useful, such as using the "wallflower" spell so the media doesn't notice them on missions.

* [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' story ''Fanfic/TheVampireOfSteel'', Kara Zor-El uses her super-speed and eye-beams to make breakfast.
-->When all three of them got up, one by one, the next morning, Kara insisted on doing breakfast for the lot of them. Thankfully, pancakes, bacon, and eggs cooked at super-speed with heat vision tasted pretty much like the results of the normal process, and Kara was a competent cook.

* ''Fanfic/TheSageDisciple'' has the aforementioned disciple identifying his master's runic magic as Primordial Runes - something many Magi would kill or sell their entire bloodline to learn just one of. Caster applied one of these to his disciple's jacket to keep him warm because it was cold and later makes an icebox with the same method. Crow finds the situation hysterical.

* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5536346/1/Inviolate Inviolate]]'', ComicBook/LexLuthor has this to say about his sonic weapon:
-->"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. I could cut it with a plastic fork. Can you imagine what it would do to a human body?"
** He also has an energy-efficient teleportation device that can also be used as a microscope, telescope, MRI, scrying device, and video phone.

* ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour'': Kara's heat vision has plenty uses, including burning grease off your hands after having lunch.
-->She took off her gloves, stuck them in her belt, walked over, and took the sandwich from himóbeef and melted swiss cheese on a roll; it was goodóand chomped some of it, getting the grease on her hands. She'd burn it off later with her heat-vision.
