** 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).
* 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.''

* The Dark King from ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure'' wields the Power of Destruction that allows him to annihilate anything forever. Problem is, he lacks immunity to this power and he is, in fact, slowly being killed by it. The plot of the anime was kick-started by the Dark King destroying the Garden of Light and stealing the 5 of the 7 [[MacGuffin Prism Stones]] to use their power to wish for immortality before his inevitable death.

*** Tsunade explicitly does ''not'' have the RequiredSecondaryPowers, so her [[HealingFactor Creation Rebirth]] ability is CastFromLifespan (which is not extended like Naruto's).

* Aun Freya, who has the power to stop time in a wide area around her, actually lacks the secondary powers to prevent it from affecting herself as well (although she still has the required secondary powers to make sure the part of the world she's affecting still moves with the rest of the world, etc.). It's up to Anime/{{Photon}}, who is immune to just about anything to go in, knock her out to cancel it, and usually to beat the everloving crap out of whatever scared her so much she used her power.

* Either subverted or played incredibly straight in ''Manga/ShinryakuIkamusume''. It's eventually explained that the reason SquidGirl can pick up people and other heavy objects with her tentacles without losing her balance is that she can alter her weight with her bracelets, becoming heavy enough to anchor herself.

Added DiffLines:

** Luffy also was an aversion since it took him years before he reached the skill level we first see in the manga. In the flashbacks when he tried to punch something his fist would bounce off and he'd sock himself in the jaw due to recoil and lack of aim.

* 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.
