->'''Lisa:''' Wait a minute, Xena can't ''fly!''\\
'''Creator/LucyLawless:''' I told you, I'm not Xena! I'm Lucy Lawless.

The characters of a work are in some kind of a crisis, and simply need help. Thankfully, they bump into a friendly celebrity. No, the work is not LikeRealityUnlessNoted - they could very well be [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants diminutive talking sea creatures who meet David Hasselhoff on the beach]]. And it's more than that -- the celebrity is ''very'' unlike reality. In fact, they have super-powers. Why? Because they're a celebrity.

Similar to, but distinct from MemeticBadass and PopularityPower. In both of those cases, it's a fictional character who most often gets the treatment; in CelebrityPower, it's a real-life celebrity, and it doesn't need to be a meme to qualify. Any celebrity who has super-powers just because they're a celebrity counts.


* In ''ComicBook/PS238'', Creator/WilWheaton is a psychokinetic.

[[folder:{{Film}} (Animated)]]
* As suggested within the description, Creator/DavidHasselhoff is shown this way in ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobSquarePantsMovie''. He's apparently capable of swimming like a speedboat, and firing things out from between his pectoral muscles at incredible velocities.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'':
** Brian Boitano, as represented by "What Would Brian Boitano Do?" Apparently in possession of [[BreathWeapon fire breath]], and a TimeMachine, among other strange powers.
** "Barbra Streisand" is a swear word profane enough to trigger the V-Chip.
* Music/TheBeatles in ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'', because "it's all in the mind." Some of Music/JohnLennon's are blatantly plot-critical, but everyone has something important -- even if it's just MagicMusic. Music/GeorgeHarrison uses much of his for MundaneUtility...
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Rango}}'' the Spirit of the West (also called "The Man with No Name") is heavily implied to be a retired Clint Eastwood. Who gives the protagonist the advice needed to save the town.

* In ''Film/LittleNicky'', Nicky pulls a DeusExMachina by summoning the ultimate force of darkness to take down Adrian: [[spoiler:Music/OzzyOsbourne, who proceeds to bite the head off the then-bat-transformed demi-devil]]. ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Awesome]]''.
* At the end of ''Film/{{Half Baked}}'', [[DeusExMachina the day is saved]] when one of the characters opens the "[[Music/TheGratefulDead Jerry Garcia]][[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin -in-a-bag]]" that [[ChekhovsGun he'd been wearing around his neck]] [[CompanionCube and talking to]] [[ChekhovsGun the whole movie]].

* In a sketch on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' where Christopher Reeve guest-hosts, it's shown that Reeve got the part of Superman in ''Film/{{Superman}}'' in part because he can actually catch bullets in his teeth, squeeze a lump of coal into a diamond, and has heat vision. So could the other guy he is up against, even better than Reeve could (plus he has super-breath); but the other guy couldn't make the first day of filming because he already had a commercial callback scheduled for that day.

* On an episode of ''Series/MuppetsTonight'', Cindy Crawford was shown to have heat vision, because she's a ''super''model.
** And then there was Christopher Reeve back on the original ''[[Series/TheMuppetShow Muppet Show]]'', as demonstrated after a backhanded comment about Ms Piggy.
--->'''Piggy''': Hi-yah!
--->'''Kermit''': Wow! He really is the [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Man of Steel]].

* Every pro in ''Videogame/BackyardSports'', since they specialize in their respective sports while the neighborhood kids [[JackOfAllStats play many different sports]].

* One of Shelley's [[http://scarygoround.com/index.php?date=20090217 plans to rescue Des from his hosts]] on a UsefulNotes/{{council estate}} in ''Webcomic/ScaryGoRound'' is "Enlist Bjork!" (With a picture showing Shelley giving the Icelandic musician a pistol.) It makes as much sense as [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} her other ideas]], but, (un)fortunately, she doesn't know Music/{{Bjork}}.
* ''Webcomic/{{MegaTokyo}}'''s Ed is obsessed with Erika and Kimiko because high caliber idols have the power to shape nations. Which... isn't actually THAT much of a stretch. Maybe not NATIONS, but at least subcultures and such.
* ''Webcomic/FakeNewsRumble'' runs on this.

* In a ''WesternAnimation/{{Treehouse of Horror}}'' episode, the following exchange occurs after (super-powered) Bart and Lisa rescue a certain actress from "The Collector":
-->'''Lisa''': "Wait, [[Series/XenaWarriorPrincess Xena]] can't fly!"
-->'''Creator/LucyLawless''': "I told you, I'm not Xena. I'm Lucy Lawless!"
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' features the unlikely team of Don Knotts, Music/WeirdAlYankovic, and [[WesternAnimation/DynomuttDogWonder the Blue Falcon]]. Al gets to invoke the trope at the end.
* The final episode of ''WesternAnimation/GodTheDevilAndBob'' ends with the Devil nearly causing a riot at a performance of ''Theatre/ArsenicAndOldLace'' as the citizens of Detroit clash over censorship versus free speech, but the two sides' animosity is destroyed by the inexplicable arrival of... Creator/KevinBacon, who convinces everyone to dance. To that song from ''Film/{{Footloose}}.'' Everyone is friends again and have fun. The Devil laments to his henchman Smeck: "Kevin Bacon again! I create one little party game, and now he won't leave me alone!"
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' had an episode where newsman Hugh Downs (doing his own voice) shows up to rescue Meg and the local geek from a hostage situation. At the end of the scene, he flies away, a la Superman.
* ''WesternAnimation/MuchaLucha'' had Penn and Teller appear as actually magical in the movie.
* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' boys are contacted by Creator/BarbraStreisand, who transforms into... [[HumongousMecha Mecha Streisand]]. She is opposed by Creator/LeonardMaltin, Creator/SidneyPoitier, and [[Music/TheCure Robert Smith]], all of whom transform into one kind of {{Kaiju}} or another. The first three fell under the show's "all celebrity voices are impersonated... poorly" rule, but [[AsHimself they got the real Robert Smith]].
* In the ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' episode about Juggalos, Music/InsaneClownPosse ([[AsHimself voicing themselves]]) make an appearance at the end of the episode in a court case in which they're being sued by Frylock and Meatwad over Shake committing suicide. After offering a reasonable defense wherein they explain their contributions to charity, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope conclude by stating that they [[StealthPun spit fire]] before turning into demonic creatures and spraying the courtroom with napalm. Rob Lowe (who is acting as the prosecuting attorney) states that he has no further questions.
