*** In the ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' cartoon, the rings served the same purpose, and he could only acquire one every 12 hours (thus limiting the flow of Phlebotinum and preventing him from using his super-speed powers to become a [[FlyingBrick Sprinting Brick]].

** On the subject on Tohno Shiki, his stated ability is Mystic Eyes of Death Perception which perceives the "death of existence" of things as lines and points arrayed across a surface of the said object. Cutting and piercing those lines terminates that existence. He wears [[{{RestrainingBolt}} special glasses]] to block the Mystic Eyes and, while wearing them, he can't see the lines and also cannot accidentally cut them. In other words, Mystic Eyes of Death Perception come with a secondary power that also allows him to "interact" with the lines he can "see."

* The "Phase-" powers that Sirens can use in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' have certain specific physical limitations. Lilith's Phasewalk power, for example, shifts her into an alternate dimension, where she can't be seen or attacked - being literally immune to energy from our dimension, both electromagnetic and kinetic. At the same time, while Phasewalking, Lilith can't operate objects, fire weapons, or ''jump'', because she can't exert energy against objects in our dimension either. Maya's Phaselock power lets her lift and trap enemies in the same dimension, but she can't do it to massive objects like Constructors or other large machines; instead the force exerted by the Phaselock does tremendous damage to the target. [[spoiler: Angel]]'s ability to [[spoiler: Phaseshift]] lets her [[spoiler: take control of Hyperion machinery]], but she can't simply [[spoiler: take control of any device; she can only hack networked Hyperion machinery, and anything not made by Hyperion is inaccessible.]] This is why Handsome Jack needs to [[spoiler: trick the player into installing a Hyperion device into the shield system in Sanctuary]], and later on, [[spoiler: Angel has to "coerce" Hyperion engineers controlling the lunar deployment systems to launch a Fast Travel Beacon by shutting off their air supply.]]

** Similarly, while [[VideoGame/MegaManZero Zero]] can [[MegaManning mimic bosses attacks after he beats them]], he often doesn't have their weapons or range to go with it.

** Having an absurdly high Acrobatic level, as Icarian Flight gives you, actually ''does'' grant you the required secondary power of protecting against falling damage. The problem with the Scrolls is that they wear off ''before you land''...

** Having an absurdly high Acrobatic level, as Icarian Flight gives you, actually ''does'' grant you the required secondary power of protecting against falling damage[[note]]How far you have to fall to take falling damage scales up at a rate higher than the rate how high you can jump increases, and at 125 Acrobatics -- 25 above the base cap -- there is no fall damage. Icarian Flight increases Acrobatics by ''500''[[/note]]. The problem with the Scrolls is that let you jump so high and far that they wear off ''before you land''...

** ''Prime'' (again) shows that the Morph Ball [[BallOfLightTransformation turns Samus into a small cloud of energy]] while engaged -- the two halves of the sphere have a seam between them you can see right through if you roll the ball the right way and hold still. Presumably "Space Pirates who saw the Morph Ball hold still long enough to realize this" and "Space Pirates whose suffered a violent death at Samus's hands" are mutually exclusive groups.

** With regards to [[SecretCharacter Mythical]] [[LostForever Pokémon]], the player themselves must also have the required secondary power of driving, public transportation, or having someone to drive them if they want to get every Pokémon in real life. That, or have internet access.

** It's also pretty obvious that Tails has not only some kind of healing ability, but an anchoring one as well, explaining why his tails stay attached to him whenever he flies. He's also been shown to be incredibly durable otherwise. Likewise, his tails must also be very strong to achieve flight (with ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' having him carry himself, Sonic and Knuckles simultaneously) as various games allow him to attack with just his tails.

Likewise, his tails must also be very strong to achieve flight (with ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' having him carry himself, Sonic and Knuckles simultaneously) as various games allow him to attack with just his tails. Additionally, his tails being able to support his flight basically means they are very strong, which explains how he can use them as very effective [[TailSlap offensive weapons]], even against robots.


Added DiffLines:

** Sonic and Shadow are shown to be '''very''' strong and durable for their size, thanks in no small part to withstanding high speed g-forces. Sonic in ''Anime/SonicX'' can ''easily bend a tank barrel into a pretzel shape,'' get punched through several buildings without a scratch, and with no leverage, push a sixty-foot robot pinning him down off with only slight effort. Shadow on the other hand, can overturn buses with one hand, easily wield an anti-tank minigun several times bigger and heavier than he is, and kick through solid steel reinforced walls.

* In ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'' The Boss gets [[InASingleBound super jumping]] early on, but also becomes immune to fall damage that would otherwise kill them in any previous game. When using their super speed they also gain the ability to knock cars, people, and other destructible objects out of their way.

** Sonic can handle high speeds without losing consciousness or feeling unsteady (hence why he has the reflexes and cognition to avoid plowing into things when running). Tails tries out a device in order to help Sonic during ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' that boosts the speed of whatever it's attached to and he ends up woozy and feeling ill afterwards, which Sonic says doesn't bother him.
