* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', this trope is partially acknowledged in that Ichigo's speed increase from his Bankai lacks one notable secondary power: namely the ability to withstand his own speed. His first use of Bankai almost causes his own bones to break towards the end of the fight. He has to toughen up before he can get over that particular limitation.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Kenpachi Zaraki's]] Bankai drastically increases his strength and ferocity, but he eventually destroys his arm from the force of his sword swing because his body has not had a chance to adapt to his new ability.

* Similar to the above, the various signature TransformingMecha of Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross and its sequels employ 'Energy Conversion Armor' which uses metals and technologies reverse engineered from the eponymous Macross itself (termed 'Overtechnology'). This armor can absorb energy and use that energy to reinforce it's own structural integrity. According to the various supplementary materials of the series, this is what the energy output of the Reaction Engines is used for when not being 100% committed to thrust. Thus when in Battroid (giant robot) mode, standing on the ground, with 0 thrust, 100% of the engine output is going towards telling the SquareCubeLaw to take a hike.

* In ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'', Issei's power is having Boosted Gear, a Sacred Gear that doubles his power every ten seconds to the point that he can kill ''any deity'' whatsoever. The drawback however is that his stamina also gets drained because his body cannot handle the stress of his Sacred Gear's power. This leads him to undergo TrainingFromHell twice, once from Rias, and another one from [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Tanninim.]]

* At first one might think that the armors in ''SaintSeiya'' protect the users from the opponents' attacks; in fact, the armor's main function is to protect the user's body from his own powers since a normal human body isn't able to resist such amounts of power. Of course FridgeLogic kicks in most fights since more often than not the characters end up half-naked.

* ''Manga/BrynhildrInTheDarkness'': Kotori's teleportation resets the kinetic energy of the target, which is how she can rescue someone from a multi-storey drop without them splattering on contact with the ground.

* In ''LightNovel/MyriadColorsPhantomWorld'', Haruhiko shares Mai's memories and gains her martial arts skills in the process. Unfortunately, he's horrendously out of shape, so that knowledge doesn't do him any good as he lacks the strength, speed, and stamina to apply these skills.

to:

* Since magic in MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha is based on complex mathematical equations, mages must have a very good and extensive mathematical knowledge. Before becoming a mage herself, Nanoha has been stated to be very good in math and Fate is stated to be good enough to be able to tutor Nanoha's older sister, who is a college student. Nanoha's skill set also required physical strength and endurance, as her most powerful spells are {{Wave Motion Gun}}s that are explicitly stated to strain the body if used frequently. By Force, Nanoha can carry a {{BFG}} with ''one arm'' while carrying the rest of the cannon's equally bulky attachments ''at the same time.''

** Takajou has what he calls "teleportation", which is really just super speed. He has the buffed awareness to supplement it, but not the reflexes or control to stop himself or make fine movements while using it. In fact, he outright says he had to undergo ''a lot'' of physical training to make his ability even remotely useful.
** Yuu can possess the bodies of others, but lacks the ability to control his own body or how long he's in the second person's. [[spoiler: Once it's revealed that this is actually a side effect of his real ability, it's slightly less important.]]
** Zigzagged with Shichino, who can pass through solid matter, and ''does'' have the secondary ability to control ''which'' matter, it seems. But he gets extremely fatigued after using it, which may be a lack of secondary powers, or may just be a lack of physical conditioning (the only time we see him use it is when [[spoiler: he's in a prison so they can observe his ability]], so he may just not have built up tge physical endurance some other characters have).

* The fact that one enemy's force field was ''not'' air-permeable was the key to her defeat in ''DragonHalf''. Mink breathed fire at her until all the air in the bubble ran out.

* Several of the heroes in ''TigerAndBunny''. The strong, and/or fast ones (Kotetsu, Barnaby, Antonio) are durable enough to use those skills without injuring themselves. [[AnIcePerson Karina]] and [[PlayingWithFire Nathan]] are likely to have resistance to their own elements, and [[ShockAndAwe Pao-Lin]] explicitly states that a taser won't work on her. Possibly odd example in the case of Lunatic [[spoiler: who can create fire in his hands for use in his crossbow, but his flashback in episode 16 shows that once he's set light to something (or in that instance someone) his fire can still harm Lunatic himself, as his father quite deliberately burnt young Yuri's face.]]

* The lack of these is what caused physical changes in the creatures eventually known as [[spoiler:counter]]dragons in "Anime/UnlimitedFafnir" is what lead to their monstrous appearances, as their physical bodies changed to accommodate the powers they possessed. [[spoiler: Iris shows this as she starts growing red diamond scales and changing her "MagicStaff" into a part of her body to use greater levels of the Catastrophe power she inherited from 'Red' Basilisk.]]

* The title character of ''[[{{Cyborg009}} Cyborg 009]]'' and the rest of his fellow 00 cyborgs are specifically enhanced to be able to withstand the acceleration of using or being carried through 009's [[SuperSpeed Acceleration Mode]]. It's explicitly mentioned that if 009 takes normal humans into Acceleration Mode, he could easily end up killing them.
