** ''[[VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn Dark Dawn]]'' turned several UtilityMagic powers into more fantastic powers with Mundane Utility. Catch (used to grab out-of-reach objects) was replaced by Grip (used for LeParkour...and for grabbing out-of-reach objects), Parch (drying out flooded places) was replaced by Arid Heat (used for combat...and drying out flooded places), and Blaze (light torches) and Burst (clear out debris via StuffBlowingUp) were merged with Fireball ([[PlayingWithFire guess]]).
** Can't get much more into the spirit of this trope than ''Dark Dawn'''s take on [[spoiler: the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Sol Blade]]]], which explodes into fire, calls meteors from the heavens...and ''[[spoiler: [[BonusDungeon opens doors]]]]''.
** A joke in the fandom is that Psynergy is how all the Adept characters maintain their [[AnimeHair improbable hairstyles]].
