Added DiffLines:

** Semi-Averted with the Rebellion's white witch Madame Razz, who apparently frowns on using magic when your own muscles will do the job too. It was actually something of a plot point for a couple of the episodes centered around her.

** Garnet can generate electricity, but has rarely used it on screen and, oddly, never in combat. Instead, she's used it once to power an arcade game and a second time to recharge the battery in Greg's van.

* The title characters of ''ThePowerpuffGirls'' frequently use their powers for other things when they're not fighting crime or monsters, such as cleaning their room. However the most frequent use of their ability of flight is used to simply get around. There is hardly a time they aren't floating around rather than walking.

* ''MegasXLR'': Coop abused his mecha's abilities at every possible opportunity, usually just for rather mundane things. That's not counting all the times he's just showing off because he's bored. The show also used this trope from the other direction. Even though he's in a giant mech with enough firepower to destroy planets and can ''fly at interstellar speeds'', he still has to deal with things like traffic and annoying drivers. In one episode, Megas got ''towed'' and Coop had to jump through all the hoops, including retaking the driver's exam, to get back a giant robot that could smite the world with the press of a button.
