* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway:
** [[spoiler:Kyle Baldwin]] in season 4 gains an ability where he sees an independently sentient being who regularly tells him what to do next. That's it. However, the writers managed to make it a cornerstone of Jordan Collier's cult.
** Shannon Reese's (S4 E05) ability to be a super-therapist is not something most people would consider to be special. Luckily she was a therapist before taking promicin so it had value to her nonetheless.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Retraux}}: The cold opening of S3 E13 featured a video of [[spoiler:one of the normals employed at the 4400 center injecting herself with [[AppliedPhlebotinum Promicin]]]]. In spite of being produced with a professional camera by wealthy individuals in 2007 and being distributed on the internet, the video contained static/distortion, minor skips, and VCR tracking lines. This example could arguably also be considered AnachronismStew.

* IdiotBall: Richard Tyler knows an original 4400 with the ability to reverse a person's aging. He tricks this person into returning Isabel to her "true" age. The idiot part is that if he knew of a 4400 that could reverse the aging process, '''why did he not think to bring his dying wife to this person'''?
** It is implied that Richard met Cora when Lily was already dead.
** This would also be a GameBreaker as making loads of people younger, which includes removing their memories, would have far-reaching consequences on the world. Not that that wasn't the point of the 4400 in the first place, but if more people knew about her Cora would have more visitors than Shawn Farrell!

* StoryBreakerPower: Maia's precognition abilities are powerful enough that she could solve most of the important story plots before they become extremely complicated. Whatever she predicts comes true 100% of the time. [[BigBad The Marked ]]even considered her a significant threat to their plans. Which makes you wonder why other characters don't simply ask Maia to help them solve some of the shows [[FridgeLogic big mysteries]].
** No, as it's clearly stated that Maia can't force herself to have visions, she merely has them whenever they come to her. Keeping her around could be handy, as she is seen interacting with people in close physical proximity more often than other, but there are several sides who want her with them and on their side, plus her adoptive mother and lots of other people won't let her get abused, partly as she's an orphaned, FishOutOfWater child.

* PowerLimiter: Ten weeks after the returnees came back, the government started injecting them with a "Promicin Inhibitor" or "PI" to keep them from developing abilities or to limit the abilities of those who have already developed them.

* TheSouthPaw: It's revealed my Dr. Kevin Burkhoff that 9 out of 10 left-handed people survive the Promicin injections. Therefore, most of the non "Original Recipe" P-positives would be left handed.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Between the main and [[MonsterOfTheWeek randomly encountered]] 4400s, various NTAC agents, government agents, and regular humans, it's no wonder the showrunners subtitle each 4400 with their name and date of disappearance.
