* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'': ** Rods of fire, when not being used by the PC to break into the basement, are used for a number of mundane purposes around the Circle Tower: these include lighting fireplaces, burning peepholes in walls, playing pranks on annoying Templars, and general magical research. ** According to the in-game Codex, before the creation of the Circle of Magi, the Chantry employed mages exclusively so they could [[MisappliedPhlebotinum light candles and lamps with their powers.]] ** Meanwhile, the [[EmptyShell Tranquil]] mages occasionally turn their skills in enchanting and alchemy towards the brewing of ale for the more privileged mages.

** Aperture science as a whole either subverts this trope hard or plays it so straight that it never uses its many innovations correctly. For example, the company can use cheap panels to generate portals, but only uses these as a test element and decided to construct an expensive system of pneumatic pipes to move things around.

** You can see a lot of the campers abusing their powers, Nils the CassanovaWannabe can be seen early on using clairvoyance to practice spying on the girl's cabin using a squirrel and an acorn, Milka, an extreme wallflower, uses invisibility to escape from awkward situations, and Elka uses her foresight to look into the future of her love life. And then of course, there's Cruller's subversion of ComesGreatResponsibility:

** Within Star Wars: The Old Republic's expansion Knights of the Fallen Empire, an oddly cheery montage scene has new allies Koth, Lana and HK-55 retrofitting the Gravestone, a powerful starship. While most take their jobs seriously, all-powerful yet title-fearing Sith Lord Lana Beniko's only contribution is using the mighty power of The Force to stack a random collection of seemingly unimportant crates on one side of a room. And she looks so pleased with herself afterwards.

* ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'': The Consular and Inquisitor classes have a spell that operates as a short-range teleport. The ''stated'' reason is to get them out of danger or teleport them around a battle. One of the most common uses? Having a save point when hunting treasure chests or datacrons.
