* Harem of ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'' can [[MesACrowd duplicate herself]], creating up to five bodies linked by a single consciousness. Similar to Jamie Madrox of various ''X-Men'' spin-offs, she'll use her multiple bodies to learn multiple skills simultaneously. She'll also take the opportunity to enjoy multiple items from a restaurant's menu, though she has to be careful about flavor combinations if two bodies eat at the same time.

* ''Webcomic/MegaTokyo'': MagicalGirl superspeed can be used for fighting monsters, stealing weapons away from enemies, RoofHopping...or cleaning. Not to mention holding a text message conversation in the middle of a fight. On a more subtle note, one girl finds it easier to keep up with her hyperactive GenkiGirl friend once she gets her powers.

* In the world of ''NatureOfNaturesArt'', odd as it might sound, very few of the setting's superpowered martial arts styles are exclusively used for combat. In fact, some aren't supposed to be used in battle ''at all''...which doesn't stop certain characters from doing so.
