* Exploited by the user in ''Manga/HunterXHunter'': The ability "[[SolarAndLunar Sun & Moon: Paired Destruction]]" creates markers on two surfaces, one of the Sun and the other of the Moon. If the markers come in physical contact with each other, both surfaces will explode. Chrollo, upon [[PowerCopying stealing this ability]], learns that the markers cannot be removed once deployed. He then deduces that in order for that effect to be possible, the markers must also grant invulnerability to all damage and deterioration until they explode. Chrollo then decides to use Sun & Moon more for its secondary ability than its intended one: He uses Sun & Moon to grant said invulnerability to [[MarionetteMaster his puppets]], and, through a [[LoopholeAbuse loophole]], allows him to retain Sun & Moon even after the original user has died (ordinarily, he would lose the ability).[[note]]Chrollo leaves a Sun marker or Moon marker without its counterpart somewhere hidden and remote. Since the ability is still active, and because the thing he attached a marker to cannot be destroyed in any way, and thus the ''incomplete marker'' cannot be destroyed in any way, even through Chrollo's own power-copying limitations, Chrollo can be sure he can continue to use Sun & Moon for the rest of his life.[[/note]]

** Discussed with the ability "[[HavingABlast Little Flower]]," an ability created by Genthu in which he can blow up anything he holds in his palms. Gon asks his mentor Biscuit how he can use that power without blowing up his own hands, and Biscuit correctly guesses that Genthru has to also create armor on his hands through his Nen, or life force. This brings up a further required power in that Little Flower consumes a huge amount of Nen, as Genthru has to expend some of it for the explosions and an equal amount or even more to protect himself. This means Little Flower can only be done by someone with large amounts of Nen, which Genthru happens to have.

Added DiffLines:

** From the same part, Johnny Joestar's stand Tusk and its subsequent ACTS allow him to shoot his fully grown fingernails with the velocity and piercing capabilities of a bullet. It's also a good thing that Tusk is courteous enough to actually ''regrow'' said bullets within a few seconds (or a few minutes if he fires a much stronger shot), otherwise he'd have to wait from anywhere of four weeks to six months for his nails to come back and "reload".


Added DiffLines:

** Diavolo's stand King Crimson can skip time by up to ten seconds, essentially eliminating the first step in causation by forcing everyone and everything to unconsciously act out the time it "erased". The reason why its such a massively overpowered stand is because of its sub-ability called Epitaph, which lets him see the time that it was about to erase, [[BatmanGambit thus letting him prepare and set his actions accordingly]]. Without Epitaph, Diavolo would be confused and disorientated just like every other character ([[MindScrew and a first-time reader, no doubt]]) who fights him, as it would look roughly similar to a grand-scale TeleportSpam.

Added DiffLines:

** Being able to move and react at the super speeds that they do means that they also have to have an even more acute visual prowess that allows them to see other things moving just as fast. In more than one heated fight some of the lesser characters admit that things have gotten too fast for even them to keep up.


Added DiffLines:

** The franchise dances in and out of addressing some of this by having the Digimon, particularly in the Adventure continuity but also seen in Tamers, exhibit high amounts of hunger and sometimes the inability to transform or fight when hungry. Thereby implying that they burn vast amounts of energy to perform. Additionally, getting hit with large attacks reverts them to their base level and leaves them groggy and exhausted until they can recoup their energy.

*** The sharingan itself has a similar problem, it grants the user superhuman perception but not superhuman agility. Sometimes a sharingan user can predict an attack and see exactly where it's coming from, but if their body can't keep up with their opponent they still won't be able to dodge/block in time.

** Goku has a powerful sense of smell that is as sharp as a dog according to Goku, yet he isn't bothered by strong smells any more than a normal person outside of Bacterian, who had never bathe a day in his life and can cause even a normal person to nearly faint, showing that Goku can filter out what he's smelling. He also has sensitive hearing, although nowhere near as sharp as a Namekian, given that he can hear people whispering behind his back and through walls, but loud noises doesn't get to him.

** Some of the others are brought up in the ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'' side story. Range and accuracy are the limiting factors of Kuroko's teleporter abilities ([[TeleFrag any objects intersecting with things she have teleported are explicitly stated to be displaced]]). [[ShockAndAwe Mikoto]] uses the heat generated from her electrical abilities on two separate occasions, once to cook an opponent using a non-conductive barrier and another time on a smaller scale to cook rice in a metal canteen when the stove isn't working. In the anime Uiharu mentions a specific lack of required extras. She has the power to prevent things from changing temperature but her hands can only tolerate a normal range of temperatures limiting the potential for its use (though she's great at keeping take-away warm). Touma also has some going for him otherwise attacks like Mikoto's railgun would still be lethal as momentum keeps the projectile going even after her power has been negated.

** The characters can also move beyond light speed, yet still stop on a dime. This requires some training since inexperience fighters have been shown stumbling or running into walls when they try to stop.

Added DiffLines:

** The [[Anime/GhostInTheShell animated film]] however also goes into some detail regarding the drawbacks of such a body. In one scene, it's mentioned that a full body cyborg like Motoko has a much denser body than a non-augmented human, which means that in a body of water without the proper buoyancy aids or position on the water, she'd sink to the bottom like a stone, which clashes with her hobby of SCUBA diving. In another, one of the most famous scenes of the film, Motoko attempts to rip the hatch off of a SpiderTank. However, while she can hold onto it just fine, her body gives out before the hatch does, and she succeeds in [[AnArmAndALeg tearing her own arms off at the biceps]] when the material her body is made of breaks from the stress.

* Supplementary Materials of ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' note that using 3DMG requires ''very'' high amounts of coordination and balance (borderline-acrobatic levels) to use, much less pull off fancy maneuvers that Survey Corps veterans are seen using, as well as high leg strength, good aiming skills while mid-flight to actually land grappling hooks, and NervesOfSteel to keep it all together and not lose balance when disaster strikes (it's even stated that instructors will cut the cables on recruits to test their mettle). Also, one would presumably need to not be afraid of heights and be motion-sickness resistant.

** Titans are noted to have an extremely high body temperature, with the Colossal Titan in particular having heat generation as a defensive and offensive ability. The humans that "pilot" one of the intelligent Titans are only slightly warmer than normal when exiting, indicating that they are able to regulate their body temperature to avoid being cooked alive.
