* In ''The Fall of Doc Future'', Flicker explains that one application of superspeed is market arbitrage. She balances global financial markets by buying low in one market and selling high in another, faster than computers could transmit transactions. (She also makes billions of dollars in the process and spites financiers who were rude to her.)

* In ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi'', it's not uncommon at all to see the heroes and heroines use their Semblance and/or their weaponry for mundane things: jump rope, makeshift toy UFO, ice sculpting, aborted attempt at playing arcade games, roasting marshmallows...

* ''WebVideo/CounterMonkey'': In one video, [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] mentions an ''[[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Advanced Dungeons & Dragons]]'' game where he played a Wizard and created a Level 1 spell that permanently modified a woman's breasts and made his living as a traveling "plastic surgeon". After thinking about it for a while, the GameMaster remarked "You are gonna be '''so''' rich..."

* Everybody gets in on this at some point in ''WebVideo/CriticalRole'':
** Vax uses his ''insanely'' high stealth score to prank Grog (by shaving his beard while he sleeps) and his sister (by filling her bed with chicken sorbet).
** Vex uses her pet bear Trinket in combat, but also to threaten merchants while she haggles or give massages to the party members. Percy also uses Trinket as a coat rack at one point.
** Keyleth does everything from druid-crafting flowers for everyone for a fancy party, to animating cutlery to dance and perform Be Our Guest, to turning into an Earth Elemental to try and win a cannonball contest.
** Scanlan uses the suggestion spell to try and win an arm wrestling contest, and to get a GuestStarPartyMember to [[ShipperOnDeck "check out Grog's bod"]]. Not to mention his many creative uses of his - er - [[ToiletHumor magical bodily waste]].

* In one ''WebVideo/LoadingReadyRun'' short, two men are running an exceptionally efficient moving service. How do they do it? Well, as Graham's character insists repeatedly, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial they certainly DON'T have a functioning teleporter.]]
