* MediumAwareness: An unusual example: though Professor Paradigm doesn't quite have this, he knows there's a fourth wall, and his ultimate goal is to break it and reveal the "real" reality to everyone. In other words, he wants to give everyone medium awareness, and whether it drives them mad isn't his problem.

Added DiffLines:

* GatheringSteam: The Extra Time power limitation causes a power to take longer to activate. The longer the delay, the more the power's cost is decreased.

By the middle 1990s, ''Champions'' faced a fair amount of competition in its genre -- while ''V&V'' seemed to have faded (mostly) into obscurity, there were other challengers: Mayfair Games' ''TabletopGame/DCHeroes'' and TSR's ''TabletopGame/MarvelSuperHeroes'' were both licensed properties which allowed players to run familiar comic book characters, and ''GURPS Supers'' was already in its second edition, as was Palladium's ''HeroesUnlimited''. In 2001, a group of investors led by Dark Champions developer Steven Long bought out the rights to the game and published a fifth edition of the Hero rules, which remains in print as of 2009. A sixth edition of the rules was released at [=GenCon=] in August 2009. While many earlier games have fallen by the wayside, ''Champions'' continues to thrive, and continues to inspire new games, like White Wolf's ''TabletopGame/{{Aberrant}}''.

* LighterAndSofter: Have several villains created specifically to let the GM inject some whimsy into their campaign that's been too dark and scary for a while, like Foxbat and C.L.O.W.N., a team of villains who are superhuman ''pranksters'' rather than menaces.

They cause a lot of chaos but it's all carefully designed to be non-lethal, and they never steal anything that has sentimental value to the owner.

Even more amusingly, Foxbat has a grudge against C.L.O.W.N. for the time they easily captured him then auctioned him off to various police departments with the highest bid being around $8.50.
