Superheroes sometimes have an unintuitive combination of powers. Sometimes this is a JustifiedTrope. For example, anyone with AllYourPowersCombined will have Combo Platter Powers at least some of the time. Other times it is the result of either an excess or lack of thematic unity. Sometimes, combinations that look strange to modern-day Western conceptual categories made perfect sense in the culture where they originated.

This can happen through accretion, as with Franchise/{{Superman}}; as a deliberate change to the character, like the [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Invisible Woman]]; or even at creation, like the ComicBook/MartianManhunter. Sometimes there will be a HandWave as an off-hand explanation ("Secondary mutation", anyone?) or a later RetCon to explain how the powers actually work together; other times, it just happens. The most common set is the FlyingBrick.

This does ''not'' include abilities gained by learning them or some other method of choosing them, as something that can be learned is only random if the ''character'' wants to study random things. This means most magical abilities are excluded unless it happens to "natural" magic that a character is born with.

Frequently a result of when a character keeps playing the SuperPowerLottery. Compare RequiredSecondaryPowers when the oddball minor powers are actually necessary to make the main power work properly. When one of these powers is significantly less powerful than the rest, it's FlightStrengthHeart. When it's the standard {{Flight}}, SuperStrength, and SuperToughness package, that's FlyingBrick. If it's flight + some ranged attack, that's FlyingFirepower.

Contrast OnePersonOnePower, where every super-powered person only has a single power (RequiredSecondaryPowers notwithstanding). Compare SwissArmySuperpower, SemanticSuperpower and ImaginationBasedSuperpower where some people have single powers that they can use in multiple distinct ways, creating an illusion of "having lots of powers".


[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''{{LightNovel/Campione}}'' has the titular [[KillTheGod Campione]], who inherit the powers of the gods they slay. This is justified, as each God is a CompositeCharacter of [[AllMythsAreTrue various mythological figures which may or may not be related]], thus their powers are equally varied.
* ''Manga/FushigiYuugiGenbuKaiden'' has Genbu Warrior Hikitsu holding [[MakingASplash Water]] and a MagicalEye as his default, but ends up [[TheReveal unleashing]] [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands his powers with more variety]] than readers ever anticipated.
* ''{{Manga/Naruto}}'': [[SuperpowerfulGenetics Kekkei Genkai]] sometimes provide seemingly random combinations of abilities. The Sharingan is the first introduced. Then the Byakugan. Finally the Rinnegan with its endless supply of
** '''Sharingan''' starts off in a sensible way giving the use the ability to see hugely enhanced vision in order to do things like see objects moving at high speed and perfectly copy a person's movements. It can also be used to subtly hypnotize an unwary target. Where it gets crazy is the [[DeadlyUpgrade Mangekyō Sharingan]] which seems to ''actually'' be random with different user having different abilities (one for each eye and one for them together). These include advanced hypnosis, summoning a flame that cannot be extinguished, teleportation, sucking objects into an alternate dimension, become intangible, telekinesis, summoning giant guardian deities with swords that can cut through mountains, a shield that can block almost anything, a gourd that can seal souls. Not to mention that some can essentially '''[[RealityWarper bend reality at will.]]''' [[spoiler:Also, with [[AppliedPhlebotinum Senju DNA]], an Uchiha gains the Rinnegan's powers as well]]).
** '''Byakugan''', which is [[InformedAttribute supposed to be just as powerful]] as its cousin-technique the Sharingan is fairly simple in comparison, granting 360 degree telescopic X-ray vision and the power to directly see chakra. However, later in the series it's revealed [[spoiler:that the ancestor of the Hyuga clan supposedly had the same multitude of powers that his brother, the Sage of Six Paths, had, while still having the '''Byakugan'''. To top it off, it has been demonstrated that several generations' worth of Byakugan eyes can be collected and combined to form the '''Tenseigan''', which allows the usage of a limited variant of the aforementioned Six Paths power, and a flashy chakra mode to boot]].
** '''Rinnegan''' is if anything even more outrageous than the Sharingan. First of all it allows whoever possesses it to use all five elemental powers when no one can use more than three and most people can use only one. A person with the Rinnegan is also a instant expert for all jutsu. It appears to have the same x-ray vision and chakra sensing abilities as the Byakugan. Finally it allows the wielder to [[spoiler:summon an EldritchAbomination that lets you animate six human bodies with their own unique power, and summon the being that has control over life and death]]).
** The Rinnegan and Sharigan can also be combined into the '''Rinne-Sharingan''', which has all the benefits of the above plus [[spoiler:high-grade dimensional translocation and formation, as well as the ability to perform [[LotusEaterMachine Infinite Tsukoyumi]] without the assistance of the [[WorldTree Shinju]]]].
* ''Manga/KamenNoMaidGuy'': Kogarashi has NewPowersAsThePlotDemands, most of them completely unrelated. In addition to the standard super-strength, inhuman toughness, super-speed and the ability to defy gravity with jumping, he has a paralyzing voice, X-ray vision, levitation, PrehensileHair, the ability to hypnotize people even without direct eye contact, hands that can evaporate all liquid from anything he rubs on, 37 senses (don't ask), knowledge of every gourmet recipe ever made, the ability to summon and direct underwear-stealing crows, and USB connectivity in his brain. [[UpToEleven For starters]].
** It's safe to assume Kogarashi will acquire any power at any given time [[RuleOfFunny so long as it's funny]].
* ''{{Anime/Noein}}'': The Dragon Knights have: NighInvulnerability, [[IntangibleMan the ability to walk through walls]], enhanced perception of time, teleportation. Most of them have some form of energy blast and a secondary PersonalityPowers set.
* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' Killer Queen can turn anything he touches into a bomb, then detonate it remotely. And he can detach his left hand as a heat-seeking autonomous bomb. ''And'' he has a compartment in his chest which contains a flower that shoots invisible air bullets. '''''And''''' [[spoiler:he can turn back time to initiate a GroundhogDayLoop whenever a certain person is asked about his secrets, which has the side effect of killing the questioner]].
** Also Dio Brando has SuperStrength, HealingFactor, FightingSpirit projection, MindManipulation, PrehensileHair, prehensile ''veins'', [[spoiler:[[TimeStandsStill time-stopping]]]], [[AnIcePerson blood-freezing powers]], high-pressure blood EyeBeams, the ability to turn people into zombies; the list goes on to show how hardcore he is.
** Whitesnake from ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStoneOcean part 6]]'' can [[PowersAsPrograms extract someone's soul and stand in the form of disc, that can be put in a different person]], as well as produce hallucinogenic mist.
* ''Manga/RaveMaster'': Haru Glory's [[MorphWeapon Ten Commandments sword]] at any given time gives its wielder powers to generate explosions, move and attack at super speed, cut intangible objects and seal magic, shoot ice and fire, paralyze and push back opponents, become a ridiculously heavy sword, emit blinding flashes of light, unleash a berserk mode that features enhanced strength and speed, and finally the ability to dispel evil.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'': most characters' abilities stick to a certain theme, but the prevalence of the SemanticSuperpower among Devil Fruit users results in some that are more of a bit of a stretch.
** '''Brook''': The Revive-Revive Fruit originally appeared to give him the ability to come back to life, once. Post-Timeskip, his powers now seem to have granted him control over his soul, which allows Astral Projection, well enough... and the ability to create ice by drawing on "the coldness of the afterlife."
** '''Blackbeard''': Dark-Dark Fruit powers grant at least two entirely different sets of powers: One set of powers allows him to manipulate gravity and be a living black hole (hence the name of the fruit), and the other lets him [[PowerNullifier stop someone else's Devil Fruit powers]]. He also has the ability to [[spoiler: [[AllYourPowersCombined eat a second Devil Fruit]], from another Fruit users corpse,]] however, it isn't entirely clear if this is part of his Darkness powers, or part of his own body's natural abilities. Nevertheless, he has a definite odd combination, now that he can not only control gravity, but also [[spoiler:create earthquakes at will]].
** '''Viola:''' The Glare-Glare fruit has a whole slew of gaze-based powers. They start reasonable, allowing for X-ray vision and extremely good sight in both detail-spotting and observable distance. Then come the extensions from there, in that gazing into someone's eyes lets the user read their mind and memories; if they "see everything", one can assume it probably still counts as part of the power. And then comes the ''weird'' one, in that thanks to a Japanese pun ("eye's corner" and "eye whale" have the exact same kanji spelling) she can launch tears that ''turn into giant whales mid-flight'', providing her with a projectile as ridiculous as it's dangerous.
* ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'': the powers Thoma gained from his ViralTransformation started off pretty simple, with the ability to fire huge blasts, AntiMagic, [[PlotPoweredStamina inexhaustible stamina]], NighInvulnerability, and a HealingFactor. But as more chapters are brought out, the powers he received from the Eclipse virus gets bigger and more random. Currently, he also has psychic immunity, flight, StatOVision, an EMP Shockwave, an automatic self-defense array that launches 100 million energy blasts, and the ability to make everyone over a wide range experience cardiac arrest.
%% Bleach is not an example. That's PersonalityPowers for the guy who wears flowers. These are not randomly handed out, so they don't count.
* Alucard of ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' has an interesting collection of powers, including but far from limited to regeneration and telepathy. He's so far from other vampires in terms of power he looks like an EldritchAbomination ''to them''.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'', ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' and their associated spin-offs came up with various ways to combine the Strike Gundam's [[MultiformBalance three Striker Packs]]: [[JetPack Aile]], [[{{BFS}} Sword]] and [[MoreDakka Launcher]]. These include:
** Perfect Strike (SEED, this is all of the packs used at once)
** IWSP Striker Pack (SEED)
** Destiny Gundam (SEED Destiny)
** Strike Noir Gundam (SEED CE. 73 Stargazer)
** Tactical Arms (Astray)
* ''Manga/MedakaBox'': Medaka originally had one abnormality: [[MeaningfulName The End]], that allowed her to do anything perfectly, including other people's abnormalities, but not mimic them. Then she learns how to do that and [[UptoEleven perfects most of them]].
** Ajimu Najimi has a whopping ''12,858,051,967,633,867'' powers and abilites.
* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' has Sogiita Gunha, one of the Level 5 Espers, who apparently has several disconnected superpowers, including [[SuperToughness indifference to pain]], creation of explosions of almost any variety, SuperStrength, a HealingFactor, and an ability deflecting electricity to name a few. This is in direct violation of known laws of espers, and the researchers working on him are continually frustrated by the mysterious nature of his power, especially since he isn't interested in learning more about it.
* ''Manga/BrynhildrInTheDarkness'':
** Saori can destroy anything within six metres of herself and rewind time by up to one minute.
** Mako can create {{antimatter}}, detect other witches, fly, shoot {{Hand Blast}}s, teleport and use telekinesis. [[spoiler:Then she gets regeneration on top of that.]]
** [[spoiler:Awakened Kuroneko]] can fly, teleport, generate DeflectorShields and create micro black holes.
* ''Franchise/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' has some, but not always simultaneously:
** Mami can create magic ribbons, plus flintlock rifles and a ginormous magic cannon. [[AllThereInTheManual The manual]] claims she painstakingly constructs the firearms out of ribbons in a non-magical fashion, but this is a bit dubious. TheMovie has her create ''a fully-functional clone of herself'' out of ribbons. She may just be [[TheAce so skilled]] that her ribbon power has morphed into more of an ImaginationBasedSuperpower.
** Kyouko has a complicated chain-of-nunchucks spear and can spawn walls of pointy diamond shapes, and less consistently, could create illusory copies of herself. She lost that last power when [[spoiler:her family died]].
** [[spoiler:Homura]] goes through the largest set, starting out as a TimeMaster with a BagOfHolding and a rarely-used MagicMissile sort of thing, eventually ditching all that in favor of an EnergyBow [[spoiler:inherited from Madoka]] and magical wings.
* ''Manga/DragonBall'': Most of the powers evidenced by the martial artists can be explained as KiManipulation, e.g. {{flight}}, KamehameHadoken, SuperStrength, SuperToughness, [[SuperEmpowering "donating" ki to each other]], etc., or else by BizarreAlienBiology, e.g. the Saiyans' giant monkey transformation or Namekians' ability to merge and split themselves. Other abilities that don't fall under ki use are [[PsychicPowers physic abilities]] such as {{telepathy}}, [[MindProbe mind reading]], [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]], PsychicLink, and [[TeleportersAndTransporters teleportation]]. Those that falls under other are often called mystic abilities, such as the Namekians' ability to create the Dragon Balls or create clothes and objects.
** [[TheHero Goku]] has one of the most diverse movesets in the series thanks to his transformations, [[PowerCopy copy]], and physic abilities. He is one of the few characters in the series that can teleport, read people's memories by touching them, is a telepath, and, at least in the anime, have a mild form of {{precognition}}. He also have SuperSenses such as enhance hearing, eyesight, and smell.
** Dende who is one of the Namekians from the Dragon Clan. He can create the Dragon Balls on top of [[HealingHands healing people with his hands]].
** [[UltimateLifeform Cell]] on the account that he inherit the best racial abilities of the Saiyans, the Namekians, and Frieza's race. He can grow stronger from near death like a Saiyan, regenerate like a Namekian, and can survive anywhere and survive almost any mortal damage like Frieza, [[FromASingleCell allowing him to regenerate from a single cell]] and [[CameBackStrong grow vastly stronger]]. He also inherit the experiences and movesets of the Earth's greatest fighters and Frieza.
** [[EldritchAbomination Majin Buu]] who is one of the biggest SuperPowerLotteryWinner in the series. He can regenerate from vapors, [[TheAssimilator absorb others, taking their fighting knowledge and techniques]], [[RealityWarper has a beam that can turn people into any object of Buu's desire]], can copy any technique he sees at least once, can teleport, is an [[{{Immortality}} immortal]], and have healing abilities that far surpasses Dende's.
** [[PhysicalGod The Kais]], the gods of the Dragon World, have their own powerset and abilities. Some of them can heal, teleport, unlock the hidden power within others, can fuse using special earrings, and can create objects and clothes out of nothing. The Supreme Kais have the explicit ability to create new planets, [[AllThereInTheManual according to the guides]].
* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'': Mukuro Rokudo has the power of the Six Paths of Reincarnation, granting him six unique abilities. He can take over people's bodies, he has a skill that allows him to perfectly perform the skills of the person he's taking over, he can summon animals, create real illusions, he can increase his combat abilities and he has access to a SuperMode.
* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'': Almost every {{Yokai}} has the ability to shapeshift into a human, but every race has their own unique powers, meaning that almost every Yokai has at least two abilities. Additionally, Yokai heal faster than humans.
** The succubi are shown to have one of the widest set of abilities. They can hypnotize men and kissing them in their state allows a succubus to make them into their eternal slaves. They can also create illusions and dive into people's dreams. Among their natural physical abilities, they can lengthen their sharp finger nails and have wings for flying. And apparently, if the anime is concerned, they can fire beams with their giant boobs.
** While Vampires don't shapeshift into humans due to their very human-like appearance, they do have many abilities beyond their signature SuperStrength. They can transfer their blood into different people, which slowly turns them into ghouls/vampires. They can detect yoki (demon aura), they have deception skills and can charm people, they can regenerate and shapeshift into something different. Their shapeshifting ability is an almost forgotten one, due to modern vampires preferring to look as aesthetic as possible, and their regeneration is usually not that high. However, Shinsou, who are much more powerful vampires, have exceptionally high regeneration powers and they can form armor on their bodies. Alucard is also capable of absorbing other living beings.
* Subverted in ''Manga/UQHolder''. Santa is an Ability User with telekinesis that can also turn intangible, which initially seems completely random [[spoiler:until it's revealed that the intangibility is a result of him being a [[RevenantZombie Revenant Ghost]].]]
* In ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'', Yellow's arsenal of Viridian-blessed PsychicPowers includes HealingHands, limited tactile [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]], {{telepathy}}, SuperEmpowering, and possibly EnergyAbsorption. One piece of artwork also suggests that her powers can be used on humans as well as Pokemon.

[[folder:Card Games]]
* ''Super TabletopGame/{{Munchkin}}'': your powers are literally based on the luck of the draw.
* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' fell into this in a heavy way during its early years with blue cards. For a long time, blue was the only color that would be given an odd new effect (justified via "strategy" or "trickiness"), often horridly undercosted and/or overpowered because it was untested. Considering that it was also the only color that did much with drawing cards (and thus extra chances to win the game) and could answer any threat either pre-emptively (counterspells) or temporarily (returning it to hand or top of library), it was the five-hundred-pound gorilla of the entire game for a long time, and even now is still generally agreed to be the overall most powerful color in eternal formats (where many of the older cards remain legal to use), albeit not as much of a threat as it used to be.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/XMen'' has the concepts of ''Secondary Mutations'' - ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, abilities which are un-related to their primary mutations - and ''Homo Killcrop'' - the informal term for the original pre-modern sub-species of X-gene-possessing mutants, whose powers manifest at birth/infancy and are much more chaotic (and thus more varied) than those of the modern sub-species of mutants, whose powers manifest at puberty (stated to be the result of natural selection, as mutant babies tended to have an extremely low survival rate compared to mutant teenagers). A number of X-characters thus fit this trope, including:
** '''ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}''': healing factor, retractable claws, enhanced smelling and hearing, adamantium skeleton, and in some cases animal empathy/communication. It's explained that Wolverine is the [[SuperPowerfulGenetics product of two mutant families]]. His mother's family has long been "cursed" with bone claws and mindless animal rages, while his father has the regeneration and enhanced senses. [[LamarckWasRight Wolverine gets all of them]]. The adamantium is added, much later in his life, by government experimentation. They'd been wanting to do it for a long while to produce {{Super Soldier}}s, but adamantium is poisonous -- a test subject who could heal away the ill effects was perfect.
** His son, '''ComicBook/{{Daken}}''', gets all this plus pheromone powers.
** '''ComicBook/EmmaFrost''': Telepathy and turning to diamond.
** '''Nightcrawler''': Physique and coloration give him poor-man's-Spiderman agility and shadow-camouflage. And teleportation.
** '''Angel''': Wings for flight and the RequiredSecondaryPowers that make flight work and can heal people with the same blood type. Although the last part was added later because, well, flight is boring. Angel also gained the ability to transform to and from Archangel, who has metal wings with razor-like feathers. That can be fired at enemies.
** '''Icarus''': Wings and associated RequiredSecondaryPowers, the power to mimic any sound, as well as HealingFactor for ''himself.'' Unfortunately, the healing factor relied on enzymes produced by the muscles of his wings, so when they were removed, he lost that power and promptly had a [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Bridge Drop]] befall him.
** '''Sage''': a mind that works like a computer and can jump-start the mutations of those with the mutant gene but no powers (or activate the "secondary mutations" of powered mutants, which are often unrelated to their original powers, placing them in this trope's territory.) And telepathy that she rarely uses, despite being nearly on par with Emma Frost. %% Sunfyre and Sunpyre or whatever their names were have been moved to FlyingFirepower as that is the subtrope for "flight and energy beams" style powers.
** '''Wild Thing''' of the [=MC2=] TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture-verse: The healing factor and animal-like senses and hairdo of her dad, Wolverine, with a smaller dose of the temper. "Psychic claws" in the style of Psylocke's psychic blade? (It's said it was "taught" to her by Psylocke, the mental version of {{Charles Atlas Superpower}}s, but ''no one else'' without psychic powers has ever been shown to use one, and Psylocke's own ability to use this is at the mercy of whatever's going on with her powers at the moment.)
** '''Monet St. Croix''': FlyingBrick powers, the [[FusionDance ability to merge with any mutant member of her family]] encountered thus far, with different combinations having entirely different personality and powers. This goes, in fact, for all of the St. Croix siblings except for Nicole (who hasn't displayed solo powers just yet.) Also, telepathy, telekinesis, and heightened intelligence. However, she may just have PsychicPowers, her FlyingBrick powers being a manifestation of that, like the 'Psionic Superman' theory that was popular in the 80s and 90s.
** '''Selene''': Animate objects plus suck people's life force to feed her youth and immortality (plus some minor PsychicPowers and FunctionalMagic, and various inconsistently enhanced physical abilities). Until she got upgraded; as of ''Chasing Hellfire,'' it's "turn into living shadow, plus absorb people ''entirely'' to feed her youth and immortality, as well as take on the form of victims."
** '''Cassandra Nova''': PsychicPowers and the ability to give (or perhaps catalyze, a la Sage) powers in others.
** '''Omega Red''': has a healing factor and life draining powers. SuperStrength from draining life, metal tentacles don't fit but were added since the healing factor let him take it. Releasing clouds of deadly gas is what doesn't fit (The Marvel Handbook calls the gas death pheromones. Sweating some sort of toxin would probably explain the healing factor. Healing factor explains strength. Draining life sustains the healing factor). Carbonadium, the metal that makes up his tentacles, is a poor subsitute of adamantium; it's radioactive, which explains the source of the gas.
** '''ComicBook/{{Gambit}}''': power is to make [[StuffBlowingUp stuff blow up]], later {{HandWave}}d as turning the potential energy in an object into kinetic energy. His charm, though, is sometimes said to be psychic in nature. His agility is also enhanced, sometimes [[HandWave explained away]] as a subconscious manipulation of kinetic energy in his own body. Also, when he was temporary blinded, he could see glimpses of the future in his cards, a power he's never had before or since. And they were dramatically extended in the New Son/New Sun saga - in the end, his powers were basically extended to manipulation of any matter - he gained a healing factor, flight powers, the ability to make stuff explode with a mere thought etc etc etc. The powers had initially been turned off by Mr Sinister, and at the end of the saga, were 'burned out' by his exertions fighting his AlternateUniverse duplicate.
** '''ComicBook/{{Magneto}}''': control over magnetism, which was quickly expanded to include the entire electro-magnetic spectrum. He also has telepathy, though it is undeveloped.
** '''Mimic''': can duplicate the abilities/training of anyone he's around was the original power, but thanks to AllYourPowersCombined, permanently has the original X-Men's powers: [[EyeBeams Cyclops' optic blasts]], [[PsychicPowers Jean Grey's telekinesis]], [[WingedHumanoid Angel's wings]] (and presumably the secondaries that come along with them), [[AnIcePerson Iceman's ice powers]] & Beast's strength & agility. He can still copy the powers of others, at half-strength.
** '''ComicBook/{{Apocalypse}}''': wide array of powers due to alien/future (his ExpansionPackPast gets complicated, though not as bad as Logan's) technology, through which he can use virtually any physical superpower, as well as interface with technology. His inborn power is control of his body down to a cellular level, which in turn grants a degree of SuperStrength, stamina and durability, SuperIntelligence, {{Immortality}}, [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever size-shifting]]... and having gray skin for no good reason. He has also demonstrated {{telepathy}} and {{telekinesis}}, but it is unclear whether these are natural or part of the suit.
** '''Blink''': the ability to teleport herself, however she can also teleport objects away from her body by producing crystals from her body which she can throw at persons or objects and if this wouldn't be enough she also has glowing green eyes, pink skin, pink hair and natural face markings.
** '''Marrow''': mutation is to have bone weapons growing out of her body, a healing factor to survive said outgrowth and for unknown reasons pink hair and skin. She also has two hearts... to explain how she could be stabbed in one and be back later when she goes the way of all dead mutants. And yes, as far as we know, she is not a mutant [[Series/DoctorWho Time Lord]].
** '''Legion''': Son of Charles Xavier, this mutant may be the MostTriumphantExample of this trope in the Marvel Universe. The simplest way to define Legion's powers is "Infinite" -- as far as has been ascertained, he possess ''every single mutant power that has ever or could ever manifest''. Unfortunately, he is BlessedWithSuck in that he also suffers from a truly ''massive'' cast of SplitPersonality disorder, having dozens, hundreds, perhaps even ''thousands'' of alternate personalities, each of which has control over one particular power (or small batch of powers). His most well-known/iconic personality, which is the closest we know to the original, is a full-blown RealityWarper with secondary powers including [[TimeMaster the ability to control time]], [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]], teleportation and {{Telepathy}}, which also counts for this.
** {{Downplayed}} by '''Cyclops''', who has EyeBeams and... a seldom-mentioned instinctive perfect understanding of geometry. Not strictly a RequiredSecondaryPower, but it certainly comes in handy when he wants to bounce his EyeBeams off of several reflective surfaces to attack enemies at strange angles. [[MundaneUtility And it makes him unbeatable at billiards.]]
** '''Jean Grey''' is nominally a telepath and telekinetic... but at full power, even without the Phoenix, she can manipulate molecules with her telekinesis, go sub-atomic, and do basically whatever she likes short of being a fully fledged RealityWarper - and with the Phoenix, all bets are off. Additionally, her teenage self's new signature ability is a combination of both her telepathy and telekinesis, manifesting her astral form in the real world, absorbing all the psychic energy around her and sending it back out again. Very shortly after it manifested, she successfully went up against freaking ''Gladiator'' (something helped by the fact that he's a FlyingBrick whose abilities are based on PsychicPowers).
** Her various children are no slouches, either.
*** '''Rachel Grey''' is a massively powerful telepath and telekinetic, and sometimes called 'the One True Phoenix'. Additionally, she's a [[TimeMaster Chronokinetic]] of awe-inspiring power, being the one behind Kate Pryde's mental time travel in ''ComicBook/DaysOfFuturePast''. She also later used this power to send Scott and Jean to the future on their honeymoon to raise baby Cable, and one future self became Mother Askani, matriarch of the Clan Askani, a bunch of weird, predominantly female psychics who pretty much wrote the book on psychic time travel, and even later used it as part of the famous 'Cross-time caper' story in ''{{ComicBook/Excalibur}}'', which involved the titular team bouncing around a lot of alternate timelines.
*** '''Nathan Summers''' a.k.a. Cable is also an incredibly powerful psychic, probably even stronger than Rachel when uninhibited by the techno-organic virus. His birth, after all, was engineered by Mister Sinister to destroy Apocalypse. Even under normal conditions, he's proved capable of using his powers to teleport, as well as 'step between moments', essentially stepping out of time. As Saviour Cable, when the virus was switched off, he became a PhysicalGod capable of holding up a giant island city, fighting the Silver Surfer and repairing everything they were destroying in the process. As he remarked while smashing the Surfer's board, "I didn't turn myself into everything I ever fought against, a god, just to come up short!"
*** '''Nate Grey''', the baby of the bunch, and Cable's ''ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse'' counterpart was explicitly artificially engineered by that world's Mister Sinister to kill Apocalypse, and has fair claim to being the strongest of the family. Aside from massive scale PsychicPowers, he's also capable of: {{Psychometry}}, [[{{Seers}} Precognition]], AstralProjection (including making astral forms solid, something he did on pure instinct... to Professor Xavier, who was on the verge of becoming Onslaught, who promptly used that particular trick to wreak havoc. Can you say NiceJobBreakingItHero?) creating psychic armour powerful enough to hurt Thanos and the Hulk, then later allow the Hulk to beat up Thanos), [[TimeMaster stop time]], and [[{{Teleportation}} teleport between universes]]. This isn't a complete list, either. At the higher end, he was a fully fledged RealityWarper, and it was a running plot point in his series that he was genuinely afraid of waking up to find that he'd accidentally rewritten the world around him.
** And then there's '''Hope Summers''', who basically won the SuperpowerLottery forever: she has the power of any mutant around her, at full power and potential, and she can take on as many powers at once as she likes. Stryfe also remarked that she was potentially an Omega Level psychic, like him, which seems fairly plausible. Oh, and she might be Jean Grey reincarnated, and was most certainly born to be the host of the Phoenix.
* Creator/DCComics: [[HumanAliens Kryptonians]] have a standard FlyingBrick (SuperStrength, SuperSpeed, {{Flight}}), [[EyeBeams heat vision]], XRayVision, and so on when exposed to yellow sunlight. The most well known character being:
** ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'': His original powers were mainly exaggerations of normal human abilities; in the first story, simply because he was from an older planet and more "[[EvolutionaryLevels highly evolved]]" than us mere mortals. Later this was {{Retcon}}ned as from being born on a world with high gravity and a thick atmosphere. Around the same time, PowerCreepPowerSeep caused [[InASingleBound Super Leaping]] to become {{Flight}}. Later XRayVision split off [[EyeBeams heat vision]], and so on.
** ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' was created after her cousin Superman had got most of his power upgrades, so she had a lot of different powers from the beginning. In ''The Supergirl From Krypton'' -her first appearance- she uses her super-strength, hurricane breath and x-ray vision... in the same page!
** ''ComicBook/{{Superboy}}'': Conner Kent and Chris Kent a.k.a. Nightwing have Kryptonian powers ''and'' tactile telekinesis. Chris' girlfriend Thara Ak-Var aka Flamebird has Kryptonian powers ''and'' [[PlayingWithFire pyrokinesis]].
* ''ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-heroes}}'': Ultraboy is a guy with the powers of Superman, but he can only use one at a time (even the passive ones like invulnerability.) He does have a Legion flight ring so he doesn't have to use his natural flight which frees him up to use one other power. He does seem to keep the RequiredSecondaryPowers for whichever ones he's using at the time though.
* ''[[ComicBook/SubMariner Namor the Sub-Mariner]]'': has everything you'd expect from a being built to survive underwater: strength enough to survive ocean pressure, agility and speed to swim quickly and efficiently... and tiny wings on his ankles that allow him to fly, making him a FlyingBrick. This last was eventually explained as a mutation caused by his [[HalfHumanHybrid surface-dweller/Atlantean hybrid]] heritage. Thus he's considered one of the first mutants of the modern age in the MarvelUniverse.
* ''ComicBook/MartianManhunter'': SuperStrength, Flight, [[IntangibleMan Intangibility]], {{Invisibility}}, ShapeShifting, SizeShifting, {{Telepathy}}, [[MindOverMatter Telekinesis]], Nine Senses, EyeBeams, the ability to strain gold from seawater, the ability to create ice cream cones with the power of his mind, the power to animate clothing, underwater breathing, and control over magnetism. Oh, and fire is his KryptoniteFactor. Yes, ''even though'' he has heat vision.. And the explanation for all this? He's Martian. That's it.
* ''Franchise/SpiderMan'': Most of his powers are supposed to be those of a spider, amped up to human proportions, but with SpiderSense standing in for a spider's multiple eyes. But once having got these powers, Peter quickly invents his web-shooters[[note]]Originally, he knew instinctively how to mix chemicals to make web, which he then loaded like cartridges into a "blaster" on his arm[[/note]], which are thematically appropriate, but not really connected to the rest of his powers. Later versions of the character have given Spidey "organic web-shooters" to more closely tie his powers together. Over the decades, Spider-Man has developed other temporary powers or devices. A recent secondary mutation gave Peter more spider-based powers including the ability to feel trace vibrations in his weblines, enhancing his spider-sense to where he can practically see in the dark, making his hairs more sensitive, giving him poison stingers in his arms... [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway and the power to instantly recognize what species a spider is by looking at it]]. However, most of these powers, plus his organic webbing, have been lost in the TimeSkip between ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay'' and ''Brand New Day''.
* ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'': Susan Storm, who started out with just invisibility, then gained force field powers to allow her a more active role in the stories. A much later RetCon claimed that her invisibility was actually an instinctive use of the forcefield to distort light around her. Johnny Storm also has the FlyingFirepower set, and is over on that page.
* ''ComicBook/DangerMan'' (nee [[SueDonym Dan Jermain]]) was a hapless worker in a nuclear plant who was caught in an industrial accident that made him bigger, stronger, and more powerful. And also gave him energy blasts, the ability to breathe underwater, and he can have a meltdown if he gets angry. His head and hands glow and have little spheres orbiting around them, atom-style. Although he's also a huge subversion of the whole "radiation accident" origin; He's not a superhero. He's still a hapless worker in a nuclear plant, but now when he rolls over in bed he crushes his wife, tears his clothes up with one false move because he's so strong, and gets stared at on the subway because of how obvious his situation is.
* ''ComicBook/{{Static}}'': almost anything as long as it can be given a [[HandWave vague connection]] to [[LightningCanDoAnything electromagnetism]]. Including listening to [=CDs=] without a player.
* ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'': Empowered's super suit gives her super strength, energy beams... and the ability to make phone calls by speaking into her pinky and forefinger and WallCrawling and [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace the ability to breathe in space]], it turns out. Also, her suit can turn invisible. ([[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway Not her]], [[FanService just the suit.]]) The suit's mask offers a bunch of vision based powers as well including XRayVision and the like.
** Mind you, HeartIsAnAwesomePower [[note]]Emp once managed to trick a villain into thinking her suit was torn to shreds and thus, had left her powerless. Nope. Partial invisibility.[[/note]]
* ''[[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk The Hulk]]'': He has SuperStrength, is NighInvulnerable, can create a stunning sonic boom with his hands, [[HealingFactor regenerates]], okay, all fit sort of with the "unstoppable force of rage" idea. However, two other, lesser-known powers: he can see, and HIT, ghosts and astral projections, and can home in on the site where the gamma bomb that created him went off. And [[SuperIntelligence supermath]]. The ability to automatically reduce collateral damage when levelling down entire cities. Officially, this is explained as Bruce being a 'hypermind', able to analyze and predict the consequences of his actions near-instantaneously. (after all, he was a brilliant scientist before being turned into the Hulk) Hulk is also highly resistant to telepathy and mind control (it's mentioned that he was the only one who wasn't effected by the CosmicRetcon that wiped out everyone's memory of the Sentry, and neither [[ComicBook/XMen Professor X or Emma Frost]] can MindRape him), occasionally capable of absorbing radiation, and has limited reactive adaptation. He's shown adapting to being able to breathe under water and survive for a fairly considerable time in the vacuum of space (while still needing to breathe eventually). [[ComicBook/UltimateMarvel Ultimate Hulk]] takes it a step further, adapting to the atmospheres of Mars and Venus after limited exposure.
* ''ComicBook/SpiderWoman'': Mattie Franklin, one of the numerous heroines (and villains) who goes by the name. has the powers of [[AllYourPowersCombined all of them]]. This includes powers such as: Strength and agility, flight, energy blasts, some low-level psychic powers, psychic webs, psychic spider-legs... Logically she should also have Jessica Drew's pheromone powers, but they were never demonstrated.
* ''ComicBook/NoHero'':
** '''Joshua Carver''' has super strength, flight, and quick healing.
** '''Smoke Lightning''' can transform into smoke and shoot lightning.
* ''ComicBook/CerebusTheAardvark'': Parodied with the "reads" character Rabbi. He had hundreds of peculiar and highly specialized powers such as dextrorotatory breath -- making the plane of polarization of light spin to the right by blowing.
* ComicBook/{{Darkseid}} was born with the SuperStrength and NighInvulnerability common to the strongest of the ComicBook/NewGods. Then he killed his older brother to claim the Omega Effect, which is essentially a GreenLanternRing (the trope, not a literal one) taken UpToEleven in the form of EyeBeams. The Omega Effect allows Darkseid to teleport people, [[AgonyBeam torture them]], [[Series/TwilightZone wish them to the cornfield]] and wish them ''[[BackFromTheDead back]]''. In ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'' he gained even more new powers. His new variant on the Omega Effect, the Omega Sanction, can subject its target to a FateWorseThanDeath by sending that person to live out a brutal cycle of reincarnation. Darkseid can also create [[FightingAShadow avatars of himself]] to do his bidding when he doesn't feel like moving himself, move through time, make himself as huge as skyscrapers, teleport without using the Omega Force, mass scale mind control, and quite a few others. This makes sense, considering Darkseid is a god.
* Deconstructed in ''ComicBook/{{Irredeemable}}''. The Plutonian has a wide variety of superpowers because [[spoiler:he's actually a RealityWarper subconsciously altering the universe.]]
* In ''ComicBook/TheAuthority'', the government assassin Seth boasts having been given over a thousand different superpowers by his sponsors. As he only appears in one storyline only a few of them are actually seen, but he does use his "nuclear poop vision".
* Sand Masters in ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'' can telekinetically manipulate sand to serve as shields, weapons, and tools. And then there's slatrification, the power to turn sand into water. Kenton actually [[LampshadeHanging points out that slatrification seems to have nothing to do with any of the other Sand Master abilities]].

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', being the son of Thor [[spoiler: (and cousin of Jean Grey)]], and thanks to a lot of meddling by Doctor Strange, Harry would appear to have won the SuperpowerLottery big time:
** He's an Omega Class psychic (though he explicitly remarks Jean is a great deal more powerful than he is, and when he [[spoiler: goes up against Maddie Pryor, he does everything he can to avoid a straight fight because she'd steam-roller him]]). He's got the physique of a developing demigod (which, by the start of the sequel, he's roughly on par with a SuperSoldier). He's got his magic, which is a great deal more powerful thanks to his emerging heritage, and has a particular knack for PlayingWithFire. And he's also got a blessing from his godmother, Wanda Maximoff, that ensures he'll be a MagneticHero. Oh, and [[spoiler: his mother's protection takes the form of a fragment of the Phoenix Force, which Lily merged with, and has previously used to speak through him, resurrect him, and destroy everything in sight.]] By the sequel, he's figured out how to tap into it, though everyone with a lick of sense says that this is a Very Bad Idea.
** As it turns out, though, it's mostly a case of BlessedWithSuck. Until chapter 70, none of his powers really manifest in any useful way, and most are actively harmful. His PsychicPowers don't really pop up properly until chapter 60, he doesn't even start to learn how to use them until around chapter 65, up to which point his PowerIncontinence means that he's a danger to himself and everyone else around him, and while he's got cunning to spare, his inexperience in psychic combat is [[CurbstompBattle brutally exposed]] when he goes up against someone that he can't overwhelm with raw power. Meanwhile, until around chapter 60, his physical abilities are pretty much on par with a physically fit young teenager, and after his SuperStrength starts coming in [[PowerIncontinence (randomly)]], he lives in mortal fear of accidentally [[{{Fingore}} crushing someone's hand into paste]] or worse. Until chapter 70, the ''only'' power that works reliably is his magic, and even then, while he's got a rare gift for PlayingWithFire, he's still basically a MasterOfOneMagic.
*** Oh, and Hank [=McCoy=] and Charles Xavier theorise that his mutant powers and Asgardian abilities may come into conflict, leading to epic PowerDegeneration, melting his brain. And that's if [[spoiler: he doesn't lose his mind and go Dark Phoenix first]].
* John in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'' has the body of a winged muscleman, super-hearing, and power over water. But [[JustifiedTrope all powers are justified]] because:
** When he was being changed into a winged humanoid by Varx to save his life, there was magic left over that had to be factored in somehow. Varx channeled the magic into mild SuperStrength and super-hearing because he wanted it to be as unobtrusive as possible. Why he didn't improve John's sight, which would have made more sense for a winged guy, can probably be explained by the fact that he was working very fast.
** When he got his water powers, which come from a magical gem, the gods [[spoiler: (actually Jeft)]] ensured that he would get the gem (rather than Paul) because it worked better on stronger hosts.
** In the WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}[=/=]ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}} crossover ''Legion of Lawndale Heroes'', all of the super-powered students at [[AcademyOfAdventure USAES]] exhibit this trope to an extent. Perhaps the most blatant example of this is Cadet Maryann Lyter, who has the same powers as Ultra Boy of the LSH - and in addition, possesses the ability to see the true appearance of any person, entity or environment, without going insane or dying (should she look at the face of an EldritchAbomination, or such). It's handwaved in that the ability is a passive mystical trait ([[MetaOrigin in that all humans have the innate ability for either mental or magical abilities]]).
* ''Fanfic/LastChildOfKrypton'': Shinji has Kryptonian DNA, so he has the usual: he flies, he is super-strong, super-fast, invulnerable, has super senses... [[spoiler:Asuka]] is ''Franchise/WonderWoman'', so she has almost similar but weaker powers and is not ImmuneToBullets. In the rewrite, though, she becomes ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'', so she has all Kryptonian powers.
* The ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' story ''FanFic/ResonanceDays'' features {{Cute Monster Girl}}-ified versions of the [[MonsterOfTheWeek witches]] in the series, who possess abilities dependent on their more bestial forms. Oktavia von Seckendorff is a [[InstantExpert musically-prodigious]] [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent mermaid]] who can conjure [[ImprobableWeaponUser train wheels as weapons]]. Of course, this is all based on her backstory and her appearance in the series: [[spoiler: she [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie was]] a Puella Magi who wished to heal the hand of a musician, but he fell in love with another girl (reminiscent of ''Literature/TheLittleMermaid''), and she suffered her DespairEventHorizon at a train station]]. Charlotte can [[MiracleFood create non-dairy foods]], project golden wire from her fingertips, and [[OneWingedAngel turn into a giant worm]], a reference to both her [[TrademarkFavoriteFood heavy ties to cheese]], her [[HappilyMarried wife]], and Literature/TheVeryHungryCaterpillar. On top of this, they're also unilaterally {{Lightning Bruiser}}s.
* ''Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton'': Asuka gets whole Kryptonian package, including: EyeBeams, FlyingBrick, {{Flight}}, NighInvulnerability, ImmuneToBullets, SuperStrength, SuperBreath, SuperSenses (and XRayVision), SuperSpeed (faster than a speeding bullet, literally proven)...
* Sailor Venus from ''Sailor Moon: Legends of Lightstorm''. The other Scouts wield control over an element, but her powers are a powerful impact beam and six virtually-indestructible energy chains that can lock onto foreign surfaces.
** Jadeite wields the powers of flight, technokinesis, sleep inducement, and force fields.
* In the Literature/{{Worm}} x Videogame/{{Dishonored}} crossover fanfic, ''FanFic/AChangeOfPace'', Taylor, thanks to the [[PowerTattoo Outsider's Mark]], has her canon power of being TheMinionMaster, in addition to being able to [[SummonMagic summon a]] SwarmOfRats, AnimalEyeSpy, [[TeleportersAndTransporters Teleport]], and [[AuraVision Dark Sight]]. The addition of [[UpgradeArtifact bone charms]] adds NotQuiteFlight and ForeseeingMyDeath, making her one of the most versatile heroes in terms of power in Brockton Bay.
* In ''FanFic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality'', this is the reason Harry thinks the Philosopher's Stone is a myth -- extending life and creating gold don't really have any logical connection, so it's clearly just an imaginary wish-granting machine. [[spoiler:It's real -- the connection is that the Philosopher's Stone's actual power is to make Transfiguration permanent.]]
* In ''[[FanFic/NeitherABirdNorAPlaneItsDeku Neither a Bird, nor a Plane, it's Deku!]]'', Izuku Midoriya is Kryptonian, meaning that he comes with all of the powers of Superman. Aside from this, it's also possible to have multiple power types (i.e. metagene, Quirk, and magic) at once, with some limitations. For instance, Barry Allen, The Flash, has a Forensic Analysis Quirk, but also has his trademark SuperSpeed, which came from a FreakLabAccident. According to the author, it's impossible to have both the Quirk Factor and the Metagene and it's very rare to have a Quirk and the ability to use magic. It's also possible to have both a Quirk and a Mutation completely different from one's Quirk (like the aforementioned Flash).
* In ''Unlucky Choice'' by _N.B._, the protagonist was granted powers of the SuddenGameInterface and reborn into a multiverse. Due to the eponymous unlucky choice of a nickname, the protagonist's life runs more on RuleOfCool and general, occasionally NSFW, weirdness than on logic. As of recent chapters, he has powers of The Gamer (with race, class and luck set to "unknowable") and a MadScientist, chakra, ki, spirit (as in souls of Bleach) and mana-based techniques, apparently faith-based powers, affinities for elements of Naruto-verse, and non-zero affinities for Light, Darkness, Life, Death, Order and Chaos (the latter being dominant). Thanks to Chaos, he also uses skills like "practical potioneering-alchemical-chimerological occultism lvl 80" and titles like "master-shaman of weaponcrafting-artefact alchemy" and tentacle monster abilities -- combat and hentai ones!

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'':
** '''Jack-Jack''' can shape-shift, turn into metal or a goblin, phase through walls, fly, set himself on fire, eat wood, and shoot FrickinLaserBeams, and that's just what we've seen so far... and he's a ''[[GooGooGodlike baby]]''. WordOfGod goes that he has so many powers precisely because he is a baby. When he grows up, he will make his choice of powers.
** '''Violet''' had the seemingly unrelated powers of turning invisible and generating a force field, as a ShoutOut to the Invisible Woman. As the Invisible Woman's entry above explains, those powers could be related -- you might use a field of some sort to bend light away to go invisible, and if you can project a field that bends away light, why couldn't it deflect other stuff too?
** The DVD mentions the hero Meta Man, who possessed flight, super strength, X-ray vision, a sonic scream, magnetic manipulation, partial invisibility, and... [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers the ability to communicate with aquatic mammals.]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* In ''Film/DraculaUntold'', Vlad III Dracula has all of [[Literature/{{Dracula}} his novel counterpart's]] powers cranked up to {{Up to Eleven}}: SuperStrength, SuperSpeed, {{Flight}} (By way of his [[OneToMillionToOne swarm transformation]]), {{Immortality}}[[note]]Immune to all forms of death except [[WeakenedByTheLight sunlight]], [[SilverHasMysticPowers silver]], and [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice staking]][[/note]], VoluntaryShapeshifting, SuperReflexes, SuperSenses with a side order of VeinOVision, HealingFactor, TheBeastmaster and WeatherManipulation.
* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'':
** Wolverine has his comic counterpart's powers, but with a different explanation: adamantium can only be molded in its liquid form -- after cooling enough to become solid, it instantly becomes indestructible. Thus, it had to be grafted to the subject's bones in its (''really'' hot) liquid state. Wolverine's healing factor allowed him to recover from the trauma caused by this (and thus was the reason he was chosen for the super soldier program). His claws were also implied to be implanted, rather than part of his skeleton, although this was later retconned in his origin movie.
** ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'': Callisto's SuperSpeed and the ability to detect other mutants ''and'' the nature of their powers, apparently at any distance (she ''was'' how Magneto found the caravan transporting Mystique). It's the result of telescoping the powers of several Morlocks into one character for the movie.
** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': Courtesy of Mystique's powers and research into other captured mutants, the Future Sentinels have the following abilities: [[AnIcePerson When confronted by mutant with a fire power they turn to ice to combat that.]][[EyeBeams Their entire face unfolds to fire a powerful beam.]] Their arms can turn into FemmeFatalons. {{Flight}}. [[PowerOfTheSun The ability to heat up if they encounter someone with an ice power]] and SuperStrength.
** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Creator/BryanSinger had listed Apocalypse's skills in a May 2016 ''Empire'' article. It's justified in that he absorbs the powers of his mutant hosts.
--->"Not only can he control technology, teleport, and enhance the abilities of his chosen Horsemen, but he can move inanimate matter. He can dissolve, change and transform inanimate molecules."
* Film/{{Darkman}}: All over the place: he's a ManOfAThousandFaces, scarred TragicMonster, a fount of [[PowerBornOfMadness unhinged, super-strong rages]], and he's immune to pain -- [[BlessedWithSuck not invulnerable, mind you]].

* ''{{Dracula}}'': is supremely strong, hypnotic, commands animals, [[SuperSmoke can turn into a mist]], addict people to his blood, and climb walls like a spider. Most of these powers can be found in folklore about vampires, or previous vampire novels, but not usually all at once. And just what constitutes "vampire powers" is under dispute -- see OurVampiresAreDifferent for further discussion. Dracula says he studied at Scholomance, marking him as a sorcerer as well as a vampire (though which powers come from which is unclear).
* ''Literature/CodexAlera'': Even a single-element Crafter will get an impressively broad array of powers. As an example, an Earthcrafter can gain superhuman strength, shift rock and earth to create barriers or tear down walls, calm animals, travel rapidly over the ground, [[RuleThirtyFour induce]] [[BreadEggsMilkSquick lust]], and sense people's locations if they're on the ground. Tavi is smart enough to recognize the implications of this, and when he is short of combat engineers enlists the local brothel to aid a demolition project.
* ''Literature/TheAtomicBloodStainedBus'': Algernon is the God of Spring, Rebirth, Renewal and ... er ... Ten Pin Bowling. When the characters visit the gods' offices, they note a plaque on a door for someone dubbed God of Blueberries, Coastal Erosion and Irregular Verbs.
* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfAmber'': The Amberites basic package includes superhuman strength and endurance, regeneration, and dimension hopping; various family members also have prodigous weapon skill, sorcerous powers, or shapeshifting. Most of these [[JustifiedTrope make perfect sense]] given their background (part of which you don't find out about until fairly well along in the Chronicles, because Corwin himself doesn't know it). See the series page for more details.
* ''Franchise/{{Mistborn}}'':
** '''Allomancers''' have quite an impressive array of abilities, including SuperStrength, SuperSenses, emotional manipulation, limited telekinetic control of metals, and CombatClairvoyance. Mistborn have all of these at once. Justified in that they get their abilities by metabolizing certain metals, each of which has distinct effects- a Mistborn ''without'' his or her metals is no more powerful than any other human.
** '''Feruchemists''' from the same series have a similarly broad array of powers, because of their ability to alter their own bodies' processes through EquivalentExchange. It's well within a Feruchemist's abilities to have SuperStrength, SuperSenses, a PhotographicMemory, a HealingFactor, and more--as long as they're willing to go with their abilities similarly ''reduced'' for an equivalent amount of time.
** '''Compounders''' are people born with a matching allomantic and feruchemical ability. Due to a quirk of the magic system, this lets them break the EquivalentExchange, getting more out of their feruchemical powers than they put in, creating an infinite loop. One man uses this for AgelessImmortality, and another for a HealingFactor that makes Wolverine look like a wimp.
* In the ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' universe, ambient mages usually have one type of magic. They might have a more limited or a more broadly defined ability -- a smith mage might have magic with all metals, or just with iron, for example- but their magic will still be with one kind of thing. And then there's Kethlun Warder, from the second series- who has glass magic ''and'' lightning magic- two completely unrelated types of ambient magic. Handwaved, as the lightning magic was stated to have been a result of him being struck by lightning and mixing with his ambient glass magic, which kept him from being killed.
* in ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' non-humans and HalfHumanHybrids with Talents often fall under this trope, inherting one or both parents' species abilities plus their own unique talent. For example; Surprise Golem can inherited her mother's size changing ability (she can go from doll-sized to normal human) along with her own unique Talent of... giving herself any Talent she wants. Though she's limited to one talent at a time and once she's used a particular variant of said talent, it's gone for good.[[note]]This was found out not to actually be the case. The variants can be reused after a certain amount of time. But this revelation was wiped from her memory, so no one knows this as of now.[[/note]]
* ''Literature/TheReckonersTrilogy'', being heavily based on superhero comics, uses this heavily.
** '''Steelheart:''' Invulnerability, transmutes non-living matter to steel, energy blasts from the hands, and wind control that grants him flight.
** '''Nightwielder:''' His are actually mostly thematically related. He can blot out the sun over an entire city, control shadows to deadly effect, is intangible, and can fly (since if he couldn't, he'd [[RequiredSecondaryPowers be at the Earth's core]]).
** '''Conflux:''' The ability to produce enough electricity to light up an entire city, and the ability to give a weakened version of this power to others.
** '''Firefight:''' Oddly, he plays StockSuperpowers dead straight, just being a pyro without any extras. [[spoiler:Actually, she's an illusionist pretending to be a pyro, and she resurrects on death]].
** '''Fortuity:''' Future-sight and enhanced reflexes.
** '''Limelight:''' The ability to disintegrate non-living matter, the ability to produce force fields, and healing (both self and others).
* From the [[Creator/BrandonSanderson same author]], in ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'' the orders of the Knights Radiant fall into this. As each order has access to two of the [[StockSuperpowers Surges]], some odd combinations arise. For instance, the Edgedancers have powers over friction, [[HealingHands the ability to heal]] and [[GreenThumb the ability to make plants grow]], while the Lightweavers can [[MasterOfIllusion create illusions]] and transmute materials. Additionally, all orders have the baseline ability to increase their strength, speed and healing capabilities by absorbing [[{{Mana}} Stormlight]].
* Fairly common in ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', even without counting RequiredSecondaryPowers and people who can copy powers.
** '''Circus''': Has minor [[PlayingWithFire pyrokinesis]], [[SuperReflexes enhanced reflexes]], ImprobableAimingSkills, and HammerSpace.
** '''Watch''': Has short range clairvoyance, [[FlashStep bursts of enhanced speed]], and can create phantom hands that can reach into people's bodies to do internal damage.
** '''Glory Girl''': Has a force field that provides SuperStrength and NighInvulnerability, as well as the ability to make people feel in awe of her.
** '''Triumph''': Has a HealingFactor, HeroicBuild, and [[MakeMeWannaShout sonic blasts]].
** '''Arbiter''': Can [[{{Omniglot}} learn any language almost instantly]], [[BarrierWarrior create force fields]], and [[MakeMeWannaShout sonic blasts]].
** '''Vantage''': Has scaling SuperStrength and SuperReflexes, as well as short ranged teleportation.
** '''Hoyden''': Has SuperStrength, SuperToughness (that scales with the range from which the attack comes) and [[MadeOfExplodium has the power to explode things by hitting them or letting them hit her]].
** '''Eidolon:''' [[SuperpowerLottery Combo Platter Powers]] ''[[SuperpowerLottery are]]'' [[SuperpowerLottery his powers.]] He can choose any three powers to use at a given time, and each gets stronger as he continues to use them.
** '''Scion''': Has {{Flight}}, SuperStrength, SuperToughness, immunity to certain powers, the power to cancel out wavelengths (this usually takes the form of a DisintegratorRay or AntiMagic), [[spoiler: an extremely rapid HealingFactor, interdimensional teleportation, CombatClairvoyance, BizarreAlienSenses that let him "see" everything around him, and MindRape via his power-bestowing "cells."]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'':
** '''Peter Petrelli''' and Sylar are the best examples of this. At one point, Peter possesses Flight, Telekinesis, SuperStrength, SuperSpeed, [[ShockAndAwe Electrokinesis]], Telepathy, [[HealingFactor Cellular regeneration]], [[HavingABlast Self-Combustion]], Precognition and is a TimeMaster. Sylar gains a similar set of abilities, minus of few of the above. The difference is that Peter naturally acquires these powers thanks to his original ability, [[PowerCopying Empathetic Mimicry]]. Sylar on the other hand, forcefully takes these abilities by ripping out people's brains by using his ability to understand the inner workings of everything. Both are BroughtDownToNormal for a time, before Sylar regains a few abilities, as well as some new ones, while Peter gains the ability to [[DiscardAndDraw copy one power, and abandon it after learning a new one.]]
** '''The Haitian''' can block the powers of other "special" people. Also, he can erase memories.
** And as of season 4, [[spoiler:Matt Parkman]] has gained the power to paint the future, despite already having powers of his own. Interestingly, an episode also showed him flying, but it turned out to have been AllJustADream.
** '''Santiago's father''' from the webisodes, who has the same power as Santiago himself, plus electricity.
** '''Ando''' eventually acquires the ability to boost the superpowers of others by touch; this ability apparently manifests as red lightning that can blast people with concussive force.
** "Baby Touch-and-Go", whose touch can activate or deactivate electrical and mechanical devices, and... superpowers?
* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'': the Halliwell sisters have at various times suggested that their powers are supposed to grow with time and use, and some future versions of them bear this out -- Piper freezing whole city blocks, Prue accidentally demolishing part of the house with a careless handwave. But the actual power sets they develop over the course of the series don't match up so well -- Prue adds astral projection to her telekinesis, Phoebe adds levitation (and empathy, which sort of works) to her premonitions, and Piper adds blowing things up to her freezing time. All of these were handwaved to some extent, but they certainly don't match at first glance.
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' has a lot of characters with a lot of weird powers, but Sikozu really takes the combo platter to new levels: she can re-attach lost limbs, walk on walls, and, near the end of the series, [[spoiler:it's revealed that she is a walking anti-Scarran DoomsdayDevice.]] At one point, she expresses mild surprise that other people can't do it. Of course, it's revealed that [[spoiler: most of her powers (with the exception of the wall-walking) was due to being a bioloid infiltrator.]]
** She can also learn any language in record time, which is a good thing because she's allergic to TranslatorMicrobes.
* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' series: Some have Riders whose power ''is'' to mix-and-match:
** ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'' can match one of three fighting styles (BareFistedMonk, SimpleStaff, and TheGunslinger) with one of three ElementalPowers (BlowYouAway, RubberMan, and PlayingWithFire) for a total of nine combinations, plus a handful of upgrades ([[MidSeasonUpgrade FangJoker form]], which matches the melee fighting style with an exclusive brute-force "element"; and a few "[[SuperMode Xtreme]]" upgrades to his default melee-wind form).
** ''Series/KamenRiderOOO'' takes this further, able to select different powers for his head, body, and legs; with five options for each. At least OOO's powers are tied together by an animal theme. For example, his default form has the [[ImprobableAimingSkills eyesight of a hawk]], the [[WolverineClaws claws of a tiger]], and the [[InASingleBound leaping ability of a grasshopper]]. And again, this is before counting the dinosaur-themed SuperMode (which can't be mixed with any other powers), nor is it counting powers and combinations exclusive to movies and promotions.
** ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'' uses ''Double''[='s=] system of mixing and matching two halves, but here one half is based on an animal or some other organic being and the other half is machine-based. Every half has a matching counterpart that it's especially effective with, but these matches very, very rarely make any sort of thematic sense. For instance, he ''could'' use Phoenix and Fire Truck together since both are related to fire, but Phoenix works best with Robot and Fire Truck pairs with Hedgehog.
* The title character from ''Series/TheSecretWorldOfAlexMack'' has [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]], [[ShockAndAwe electrical manipulation]] (with some minor [[{{Technopath}} technopathy]] on the side) and can [[ElementalShapeshifter turn into a puddle of watery liquid]], which she often uses for escaping unseen from danger or to travel quickly via sewers.
* ''Series/{{Misfits}}'': Although most people were only given one power by the Storm, a drug dealer has the ability to transfer powers from one person to another. One of his customers bought telekinesis, walking on water, teleportation and the ability to drive people mad with lust when he touched them. [[spoiler: Simon]] bought precognition, time-travel, and immunity to others' powers. In a few rare cases people gained secondary powers from the storm, such as [[spoiler: Nathan]] gaining [[spoiler: immortality and the ability to see the spirits of the dead]], and Simon gaining invisibility and [[spoiler: super-human aim.]]
* In ''Series/{{Haven}}'', [[spoiler:Duke Crocker (and by extension, the Crocker family line) absorbs a Troubled person's blood to gain SuperStrength and have his eyes glow silver for about a minute. If he kills a Troubled person, everyone else in the victim's family is BroughtDownToNormal.]]
* In ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', most of the Special Children have PsychicPowers, but some also have SuperStrength or TouchOfDeath.
* Hyde from ''Series/{{Jekyll}}'' has super strength, super speed, enhanced senses, genius intellect, super-human aim, genetic and hallucinatory memory, enhanced durability, a limited ability to manipulate electricity, a ridiculously high pain threshold, and the ability to cause mass hallucinations. Oh, and he can control lions. [[spoiler:He can also stop injuries he suffers affecting Tom.]]
* In ''Series/JekyllAndHyde2015'', Hyde possesses inhuman strength, speed, durability, and the ability to heal injuries.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* OlderThanFeudalism: A good example is the [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek god Poseidon]], who, in addition to the oceans and seas, also held dominion over earthquakes... and horses.
** The horse thing came from a story where Poseidon and Athena were challenged to come up with something both beautiful and practical by some settlers, who agreed to name their city after the winner -- Athena came up with the olive tree, and Poseidon with the horse (the city in question is Athens, so you can probably guess who won). Another variant of the myth has Poseidon offering the city a less-handy (but decidedly more Poseidon-ish) saltwater spring. (The myth explains two natural features of Athens, the aforesaid spring and an olive grove supposedly predating the original settlement.) Which lends support to the RetCon idea. Additionally, another myth suggests he created the horse as a gift to Demeter, who challenged him to create the most beautiful animal in the world. A third interpretation is simply that breaking waves look a bit like horses mid-gallop.
** A lot of such gods have justifications, that usually don't immediately make sense unless you were worshiping them at the time. For instance, Pallas Athena was the patron deity of Athens (obviously), and associated with defensive warfare, wisdom and olive trees- things primarily associated with Athens.
** This also helps us date the myths. For instance, Athens was ''also'' known for its extensive sea trade (which included settling about half of the Greek colonies in Ionia), so this legend probably dates from a time when that association had been made (i.e. towards the end of the Greek Dark Age), and people were asking why they seemed to have favor with Poseidon (or somesuch).
** The earthquakes are because the land was thought to float on the water, meaning that he could cause earthquakes without touching the land. Also, because earthquakes are (correctly) associated with tidal waves.
** Zeus is widely regarded as the god of sky and thunder, as well as the god of rulers (being the TopGod and all), but he was also the god of laws, oaths, [[SacredHospitality hospitality]], and assembly. Given how important these virtues were to Greek life, this more or less made him the god of society itself.
* Artemis is the goddess of virginity and childbirth because when she was only minutes old she helped her mother Leto give birth to her brother Apollo. The goddess of the moon part started with the Romans who stopped worshiping Selene the moon goddess and gave her the name Luna Diana.
* Catholic Saints and their Orthodox cousins carry on the tradition. St. Christopher, for example, is patron saint of bachelors, travelers, gardeners and toothache. Or traveling bachelor gardeners with toothaches.
** St. Barbara is patron saint against death by artillery, and hatmakers. She is also the patron of the [[UsefulNotes/FromRussiaWithNukes Strategic Rocket Forces]].
*** Could be explained by her also being the patron saint of Miners. Miners need a good hat and (in newer times) protection against explosions.
** St. Michael the Archangel is the patron saint of radiologists, soldiers, paramedics, paratroopers, police officers, communications workers, postal workers, grocers, supermarket workers, stevedores and longshoremen. Supermarket workers!
** Saint Nicholas is one of the oldest examples. The saint who forms the base for the Santa Claus is the patron saint of sailors, merchants, archers, thieves, children, and students. If that mix wasn't enough, he is also considered the saint of prostitutes. Legend has it he saved three daughters of a poor man of a lifetime of prostitution by dropping money through the chimney, leading into the Saint Nicholas/Santa Claus legends.
** Jesus himself also counts. As described in the Bible, he does a lot of health-related miracles: [[HealingHands healing]] the sick, raising the dead, exorcising demons, miraculously providing food, etc. But he can also control the weather, walk on water, kill fig trees with his mind, and [[https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=matthew%2017:24-17:27&version=NIV make sea creatures pay his taxes for him]]. And then there's the stuff he gets up to in the Apochrypha...
* Inari Okami, Shinto god of rice, agriculture, industry, worldly sucess (okay so far), fertility (sure, why not?) and...foxes? Also once revered as the patron god of blacksmiths and protector of warriors.
** FridgeBrilliance [[CunningLikeAFox about]] [[FantasticFoxes foxes]].
** While there's no doubt Inari fits this trope ("worldly success" alone puts him in the realm of "damn near anything"), the foxes make sense. The general agreement is that foxes would sneak in and kill livestock or generally ruin farms, making them Inari's "enforcers." In other words, you mess with Inari or don't please him, and he'll send his foxes to ruin your farm (remember, he's a god of agriculture, he gives and he takes away.)
* Another Shinto god: Tenjin. Patron deity of poets, scholars and learning. [[BreadEggsMilkSquick Also a god of natural disasters, especially those related to thunderstorms.]] ([[ItMakesSenseInContext It's a long story.]])
* Name an [[Myth/AztecMythology Aztec deity]]. For instance, chief deity Tezcatlipoca was a [[TricksterArchetype trickster]] god whose domains included the north wind, darkness, chaos, rulership, discord, hurricanes, obsidian, jaguars, [[PetTheDog slaves]], and [[FlightStrengthHeart beauty]].
* This is usually common for gods in Myth/SlavicMythology. In particular, the most prominent examples are the two most famous gods - Perun and Veles. Perun was the god of the sky, [[ShockAndAwe thunder and lightning]], order, [[OddJobGods mountains, fertility, the east direction]], nobility, [[WarGod weapons and war]], and his symbols were [[PlayingWithFire fire]], oak trees, iris flowers, eagles and hawks. In contrast, Veles, who was his eternal opponent, is seen as the god of earth, waters, TheUnderworld, chaos, the west, protector of cattle and the peasants, magic, music, trickery, fertility [[note]]yes, he shared this with Perun[[/note]] and medicine [[note]]he would also punish oath-breakers with diseases[[/note]]. As the enemy and thus opposite of Perun, his symbols were water and several land dwelling animals, particularly snakes and cattle. It was thought that when there was a thunderstorm, the two gods did battle.
* Myth/NorseMythology: Odin was god of warfare, wisdom, death, magic, drunkenness, prophecy, homosexuality, hanged men, travelers, healing, royalty, frenzy and the alphabet.
** Freya is the Norse goddess of beauty, love, fertility, and marriage. She also controls the Valkyries, those warrior women who choose half the slain of every battle to go do Odin's afterlife hall of Valhalla. The other half go to Freya's own hall of Folkvang, where they are reunited with their lovers in death. And when the situation calls for it, Freya will slap a steel breastplate over her flowing white gown, strap on a sword, and wade into battle right next to macho gods like Thor and Tyr.
** Loki is the Norse trickster god, renowned for his cunning, intelligence, and (sometimes lethal) pranks against the other gods. In some versions, he's also the god of fire, one of the least subtle natural forces there is -- [[JustifiedTrope but also one of the most capricious and difficult to control once it's allowed to run wild]].

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Superhero [[TabletopGames RPGs]] in which the characters are randomly generated tend to fall into this trope regularly, for obvious reasons.
* ''TabletopGame/GoldenHeroes'': an early Australian entry in the field, allowed the player to roll for random powers -- but then required her to come up with a justification for all the powers working together. Any powers the GM wasn't convinced were properly explained got cut.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Nobilis}}'': while some Imperators have reasonably connected purviews, such as '[[{{Satan}} Lucifer]], Imperator of Pride and Persuasion', you get others like 'Askelon, Imperator of Tremors, the Culinary Arts, and the Forge', or 'Ananda, Imperator of Murder, the Infinite, and the Fourth Age'.
* ''Stuperpowers'' will often have player-characters who end up with a completely random and unrelated set of abilities. Given that humor is the order of the game, "conventional" superpowers aren't available to players, and the characters are supposed to be playing really lame/obscure superheroes anyway, this is perhaps to be expected.
* The Tane of ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' all have this going on, reflecting both BizarreAlienBiology and their [[Literature/{{Jabberwocky}} origins]]. The Jabberwock has "[[EyeBeams eyes of flame]]", the "whiffling" of its wings creates a small windstorm, and it can "burble" to [[BrownNote confuse]] or [[MakeMeWannaShout kill]] opponents. The Bandersnatch has quills that cause extreme pain, can drive a person mad with a stare, and is a superb tracker, and some types are "frumious" and set themselves on fire [[TurnsRed when angered.]] The Jubjub Bird adapts to attacks, has a stunning screech, and its bite is a OneHitKO.
* This is how Legacy ends up in ''TabletopGame/SentinelsOfTheMultiverse''. The first member of Legacy's family to have powers developed a danger sense. His son was born with that ability, and also gained superior vision and speed. The next gained super strength, then over time added flight, superhuman charisma, invulnerable skin, and (as of the last Legacy in the game) laser vision.
* Binders in ''Tabletop/DungeonsAndDragons'' tend to have very unusual mixes among their vestiges - one of the earlier ones is Dahlver-Nar, who grants toughened skin, a stunning moan attack, immunity to Wisdom damage, and the ability to share damage taken with another.
** Gods can end up with somewhat odd portfolio combinations. For example, Wastri is regularly described as "an obscure demigod of bigotry and amphibians", meaning that he's a human supremacist who's half frog. One ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'' article on Wee Jas, goddess of death and magic, also stressed that her portfolio included love, making her not just the patron of necromancers, but the LawfulNeutral patron of a force that even in the article is described as having no rules. Hell, even her portfolio including death is this - she was initially a pure magic goddess, but a magical disaster in the setting's past caused many people to pray to her to ensure the safety of souls, [[DontFearTheReaper causing her to become a psychopomp as well.]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' and ''VideoGame/CityOfVillains'':other than epic archetypes, there are restrictions on what powers are available to their chosen archetype, but little restriction to the combination of those powers. Any primary power set can be combined with any secondary powerset, making a character who is Fire/Fire just as likely as one who is Fire/Ice or Ice/Fire. Some sets don't have a counterpart at all, like Poison and Force Fields, so they will be seen combined with just about anything. Using non-matching sets often results in more powerful characters due to metagame synergies.
** And that's just at ''creation''. Starting after level 41, you can get Ancillary power pools based on your class but again otherwise unbound (so a Tanker with a shield in one hand and an axe in the other could suddenly start throwing out fireballs, or develop psychic/energy shields, etc.) The villain equivalent that you need to run a mission to get are Patron pools, which are thematically bound to said patron (though running the quest for one unlocks for all) but otherwise unique. And that's not even getting into [[AGodAmI Incarnate]] abilities...
%% Can someone condense the above example?
* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'':
** '''Mario''': The title character has had a long list of powerups along the years, among them: A [[DropTheHammer Super powerful Hammer]], power to [[ElementalPowers shoot fireballs]], to [[{{Sizeshifter}} grow in size]], [[InvincibilityPowerUp temporary invincibility]], a flying raccoon suit that transformed into a statue, a Frog suit to swim faster, a turtle suit that gives him an infinite supply of hammers, a [[BestLevelEver giant clockwork boot]], a pet Dinosaur to ride on, a [[{{Flight}} Flying cape]] (which deflects projectiles in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Melee]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl]]''), rabbit ears that allow him to Glide and Super Jump, hats that let him become solid Metal, [[IntangibleMan Intangible]]/[[{{Invisibility}} Invisible]], or Fly, the ability to puff himself up like a balloon, a water gun that straps to his back, and the latest game gave him Ice powers, and Ghost, Bee, and spring transformations. Not to mention his vanilla standard powers of [[InASingleBound Super jumping]], SuperSpeed, and SuperStrength that he always has. New Super Mario Bros. Wii adds a Penguin suit that can swim like the Frog Suit, toss freezing snowballs like the Ice Flower, and walk on ice without slipping. And the Propeller Hat for flying. Plus has the Mini Mario from the DS game that is super tiny and can run across water without sinking.
** '''Luigi''': All of Mario´s power-ups, alongside the power to [[ShockAndAwe shoot lightning]], [[BlowYouAway create tornados]] and [[PowerOfTheVoid the Negative Zone]], which seems to have strange reality warping powers
** '''Bowser''': As of [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Bowser's Inside Story]], Bowser has SuperStrength, [[BreathWeapon fire breath]], [[BigEater inhaling enemies and food]], and the ability to [[SelectiveGravity momentarily defy gravity]] letting him [[GrievousHarmWithABody body slam]] and use the momentum of his punches to fly over gaps. Within the series, he also uses dark magics.
** '''Wario''' in the ''VideoGame/WarioLand'' series. His transformations range from the somewhat normal (on fire, flat, etc) to somewhat odd (become a vampire, zombie, invisible, frozen) to the completely insane (head puffs up like a balloon to float to various areas, dizzy/drunk Wario in ''VideoGame/WarioLand 3'' and the weird hats in the first game allowing a head mounted jetpack or flamethrower).
** '''Waluigi''': . His powers range from: [[BlowYouAway Create tornados]], [[MakingASplash summon a pool of water from absolutely nowhere]], [[{{Flight}} swim in mid-air]], create blinding smoke from his body, [[MasterOfIllusion create illusions of size and trajectory]], [[BroughtToYouByTheLetterS shoot the symbol in his hat]], hypnotize the world by dancing, etc. Bear in mind, they have no explanation whatsoever
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'': [[TimeMaster Time Mages]] can [[BulletTime slow enemies]], [[TimeDilation makes themselves and their allies faster]], [[TimeStandsStill stop enemies]], [[ExtraTurn stop time to doubleact]], [[OvernightAgeUp make their enemies older and weaker]], [[GroundhogDayLoop restart the battle]]... and [[DeathFromAbove drop comets and meteors on the heads of enemies]]. That is a result of LostInTranslation. They are really Space-Time Mages. Miniature black holes for Gravity, Exit, Warp, and the occasional comet fit right in.
* If Shepard asks Thane about his beliefs in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2,'' one of the deities Thane reveals he prays to is Kalahira, Goddess of Oceans and the Afterlife.
-->'''Shepard:''' Oceans and Afterlife don't seem to have much in common.
-->'''Thane:''' Consider. The ocean is full of life. Yet it is not life as you and I know it. To survive there, we must release our hold on land. Accept a new way to live. So it is with the death. The soul must accept its departure from the body. If it can't, it will be lost.
** Also, a minor Asari deity, Tevura, has the portfolio of travel, love, sex and law. This comes from the fact that Asari are ''extremely'' exogamous, and in ancient times would travel long distances to find mates who were definitely not related to them in any way. This travelling meant that their had to be a large number of laws concerning security and hospitality towards travellers, and all these roles ended up in Tevura's portfolio.
* Similarly, ''VideoGame/JadeEmpire'' gives the '[[{{Psychopomp}} God of Death]]' role to the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Water Dragon]]; since the local cosmology uses {{Reincarnation}} both jobs involve keeping things moving around in cycles.
* All over the place in ''VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth''. [[TheHero Veigue]] can create [[AnIcePerson ice at will]] but he has no control over even the related elements, like water. [[TheBigGuy Eugene]] has power over [[ExtraOreDinary metal]], which understandably incorporates metallic meteors and possibly electricity (electromagnetism?) but doesn't explain how he can [[BlowYouAway generate small tornadoes]]. [[TheLancer Tytree]], on the other hand, has control over plant life, which somehow encompasses creating tiny earthquakes and geysers. And these are among the ''least'' unusual examples. Since it's a very action-heavy game, there's no real justification for these mixtures other than RuleOfCool.
* Yukari Yakumo from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' has the ability to manipulate boundaries, usually manifesting as portals to an eye-filled dimension. However, "boundaries" is so vaguely defined it pretty much boils down to "can do whatever she wants" like manipulating the boundary between youth and old age, life and death, reality and imagination... Thankfully, she only uses her powers to {{troll}} people, assuming she even gets out of bed.
* Corvo and Daud from ''Videogame/{{Dishonored}}'' are both touched by [[EldritchAbomination The Outsider]] and have a grab-bag of powers as a result: teleportation, enhanced agility, the ability to summon rats, the ability to turn corpses to ash and so on. Everyone touched by The Outsider seems to get a different assortment of abilities, though there is often some overlap.
* A few of the champions in ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' have some rather odd combinations.
** Sion, an undead berserker with a giant axe, has the ability to drain his health to increase the damage of his attacks, and the ability to go into a frenzy that increases his attack speed and causes his attacks to heal him and, for some reason, his allies. He can also summon an exploding shield of ghosts. Sure he's undead, but he's not any kind of necromancer. And why has he got eyebeams? (Sion is also kind of mixed up priority-wise. Those first two abilities suggest he's a melee fighter, but he's usually built as a mage because he gets more use out of the last two.)
** Galio is a gargoyle, who can flap his wings to damage enemies and speed up allies. He can also put a protective shield on his allies that heals him when they get hit, and turn into a statue that mind controls enemies into attacking it then explodes. He can shoot eyebeams too, but weirdly they act like bombs, targeting a specific circular area and only hurting people standing in it.
* Ka-Gyou in ''VideoGame/EasternMindTheLostSoulsOfTongNou'' is the King of Time, but he can also manipulate fire in addition to time. To this end, all the candles in the Land of Time are representations of each denizen of Tong-Nou's lifespan.
* Several characters from ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog''(to save on space, unless noted all of these characters have SuperStrength, SuperSpeed, and SuperToughness):
** Sonic himself: In addition to his normal speed powers, he can generate a temporary forcefield around himself, has seemingly endless stamina, can surround himself in fire, can create small tornadoes, and can home in on enemies at high speed in the air while spinning. He's also got crazy levels of acrobatics
** Knuckles can [[NotQuiteFlight glide long distances]], and [[TunnelKing burrow deep underground]]. He can toss [[PlayingwithFire fireballs]] and [[ShockAndAwe lightning]]. He also seems to have some ability to actually sense where treasure is buried. Tikal has similar abilities, if SA2's two player mode is any indication.
** Rouge has most of Knuckle's ablities, with the addition of outright flight, and the ability to attack with [[CastingAShadow darkness]]
* In VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwordsAdventures, Shadow Link can teleport, change colors, travel between dimensions, spontaneously summon weapons(including bombs twice his size), and create clones himself. As long as the Dark Mirror exists, he also has the power to regenerate himself after death.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/MountainTime'' offers Dave, who can duplicate himself (at least enough times to make a basketball team), teleport, shapeshift, fly, create portals to other dimensions out of nothing, pluck out his heart and turn it into macaroni salad, and cause others to shrink and/or grow. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking He is also adept at carpentry.]]
* The titular character from the long-defunct comic ''Captain Greyhound'' had SuperSpeed and EyeBeams as his power set. No explanation was ever given for where his powers came from.
* Shows up quite frequently in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. Each sprite can be prototyped with up to two different items, granting vaguely appropriate powers. Then the Underlings get a random combination of prototypings, while the Kings and Queens get ''all'' of them.
** Jade Harley has a particularly interesting case of this. Since her sprite was prototyped with the corpse of her dreamself, it was merged into her upon her ascension to God Tier. So now she has the combined powers of a God Tier Witch Of Space, a sprite, and her dog (the other prototyping). It's made more complicated by the fact that her God powers and her Dog powers are very similar thematically, making it a bit hard to tell which power comes from what.
* ''Webcomic/GrrlPower:''
** Maxima has the standard FlyingBrick package, metallic skin, SuperSpeed and reflexes, and can fire particle beams from her fingers.
** Halo has seven floating orbs that grant her different powers when held in a hand. The orange one fires an energy beam that can cut through a tank, the blue one lets her fly, indigo generates force fields, violet produces a telekinetic energy-pseudopod thing, yellow makes an illusion she can see through and gives her TrueSight [[spoiler: later unlocking the ability to teleport to her illusion]], the green one gives her [[spoiler: the ability to generate air]], and she hasn't figured out what the red one does.
** And then there's Dabbler, the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot alien cyborg succubus wizard gadgeteer.]]
* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Grace has [[VoluntaryShapeshifting complete control over her physical form]], [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]], [[FlightStrengthHeart and]] [[SpeaksFluentAnimal talking to animals]]. Some of her combat forms add immunity to fire and SuperStrength to the deal.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'': generally avoided, so the exceptions stand out all the more:
** '''Mustang Sally''': is super-strong and [[NighInvulnerable hard to hurt]]. She also has ImprobableAimingSkills and SuperSpeed.
** '''Tao''': a genetically-engineered "perfect weapon", has heightened agility, strength, and stamina. She is also immune to intense temperatures, being able to survive naked in both the jungle and the arctic tundra, can eat nearly any sort of organic matter, is immune to poisons, and can hold her breath for hours.
** '''Oak''': is super-strong and invulnerable, but can also [[GreenThumb mentally control plants]].
*** The former two are probably linked to trees, so he's essentially plant-themed.
** '''Queen Bee''': can shrink, fire off energy blasts (probably as a stinger equivalent), fly using insect-like wings, and mentally control bees.
** '''The King''': the AnthropomorphicPersonification of the Public's Obsession With Elvis Presley has sonic powers, knows karate, and is charming as all get out.
* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': a variety of characters, several of which won the SuperPowerLottery.
** '''Tennyo''': keeps [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands finding new things she can do]]. Flight, ability to ignore gravity and inertia, super-strength, the ability to move through force fields, the ability to produce some form of ''antimatter'', the ability to cast spheres of plasma, the ability to [[HealingFactor heal frighteningly fast]] from incredible injuries, the ability to form some sort of plasma "light saber", resistance to temperature extremes, she doesn't need to breathe air, etc. She also has thrown some sort of energy ball that temporarily acted like a neutron star, she may be able to teleport (although she was unconscious at the time), she may give off deadly levels of radiation when she's straining hard in a fight, and in one battle against over a hundred armed badguys, she literally [[RealityWarper warped reality]] all around her and opened up a rift in space-time. Oh, and she may be the avatar of some extra-terrestrial or extra-dimensional demon. We don't know yet.
** '''Merry''': who started out as a combination energizer/technopath/regenerator (reasonable so far), then got roped into a secret church order and endowed with mystical powers (notably the ability to heal herself or others with the side effect of sending her own soul to Hell for a brief visit), and the incident that permanently split her up into Petra and Paige (with two personalities each -- it's a bit complicated, okay?) also turned the latter into a werecat...
** '''Jimmy T.''': ''Massively'' versatile [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shifter]] including massive [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever size-changing powers]]. [[PsychicBlockDefense Psychic null]]. [[ISeeDeadPeople Talks to the dead.]]
** '''Murphy''': powers allow her to warp reality, grow back limbs, and cause dead animals to follow her around.
** '''Whisper''''s base power set is technopathy. However, Brian happened to accidentally activate a set of dormant military nanobots during a class trip to a research lab, which gave him healing abilities, the ability to connect to radio, TV, and cellphone networks, a combat Heads-Up Display, and increased his cyberspace abilities. Before he even noticed all of this, he then went to play Good and Evil Online, a fantasy MMO where he was playing a female elf... a fantasy MMO that worked using actual magic, and had an undocumented neural interface feature. The sum result of this is that the now-female Brianna is an actual Sidhe (a fact confirmed by Fey) and has some of the spell-casting powers that her character had. Did I mention that the US Army (at the behest of DARPA) have basically put her under their protection in exchange for her promising to enlist after she graduates from Whateley?
** '''Roulette''' has a set of five (or maybe six) power sets that reset themselves every time she sleeps, much like [[Literature/WildCards Croyd Crenson]], and like with The Sleeper, there is a chance that this [[PowerIncontinence erratic and damaged power]] will some day kill her.
* ''Literature/TrintonChronicles'': every character has between 2 and 6 powers normally; in some cases these powers don't seem to belong to the same person!
** '''Sabella''': Generates electricity, controls water, and is empathic.
** '''Robert''': Can manipulate magnetic fields and summons other worldy beings.
** '''Brandon''': Has innate understanding of machines by touch and portal creation, his understanding of machines allows him to create objects that can [[AmplifierArtifact boost]] his own power of portal creation or expand the range of other's powers.
** '''Aurora''': Is capable of creating energy clones, creates objects, induces living dreams/nightmares, can dream-walk, and is tied to the Astral Plane in some fashion.
** '''Dan''': Has power over time and generates dark and light energies.
** '''Coatl''': Is able to heal by touch and boost the powers of others at will.
* This seems to be an easy possibility in ''Series/WarpZoneProject''. Supers have one "natural" powerset each, but a character states it's possible to acquire other people's powers. What can be deduced from a villain trying to acquire the protagonist's powers is that the other person must be both accessible and alive.
* Literature/{{Worm}}: Parahumans of this nature are referred to as "Grab-Bag Capes", due to their wide variety of powers.
* ''WebAnimation/{{Dreamscape}}'': Jenna has [[AnIcePerson ice]], [[MagmaMan lava]], and [[MakingASplash water]] powers.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'': Apart from the "Ghost powers" he is supposed to have, like {{Flight}}, {{Invisibility}}, and [[IntangibleMan Intangibility]]; he also has various powers like energy blasts, SuperSpeed, SuperStrength, a [[MakeMeWannaShout Supersonic scream]], [[DoppelgangerAttack duplication powers]], and... [[AnIcePerson Ice powers]]. Some Videogames have also gave him fire powers to go with the ice ones. The concept of "[[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghosts]]" covers enough bases in popular culture for most of these to be easily handwaved in some way.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' starts off with each of the five lead characters having a single [[ElementalPowers elemental power]] ([[MakingASplash water]], [[PlayingWithFire fire]], [[DishingOutDirt earth]] and [[BlowYouAway air]]) and [[{{Flight}} flight]]. Later, each gets a different power upgrade (water and mind control/persuasion), (fire and [[{{Telepathy}} telepathy]]), (earth and [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]]), (air and [[{{Invisibility}} invisibility]]). Will also gains full [[ShockAndAwe lightning powers]] with some slight [[{{Technopath}} technopathy]]. It's also revealed that, with time, all of them can learn how to teleport, though only Will ever uses this.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** The episode "Good Times With Weapons": parodied extremely well.
--->'''Cartman:''' Hold on you guys. I actually have another power. I can see into the future too, but better than Kyle. Let me try it.\\
'''Kyle:''' Goddamnit, Cartman! [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands You can't keep making up new powers]]!\\
'''Stan:''' Yeah dude, that's like the fifth power you've come up with!\\
'''Cartman:''' I am Bulrog and I have lots and lots of powers!
** As of "A Song of Ass and Fire", Kenny has gained this, with both the Hyper-cuteness powers of a MagicalGirl Japanese Princess, and his powers of self resurrection from his parents pact with Cthulu.
* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' several of the aliens Ben Tennyson could transform into had multiple strange power sets. Swampfire, for example, had both [[GreenThumb plantlike qualities]] and a HealingFactor, but also [[PlayingWithFire fire powers]]; Big Chill was AnIcePerson who could also fly using its mothlike wings, and [[{{Invisibility}} become invisible]] [[IntangibleMan and intangible]].
* The Gems of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' each have a combination of unique skills, often without an apparent theme to them. [[TheLeader Garnet]] has [[{{Seer}} precognitive abilities]], a RocketPunch, [[ShockAndAwe electrokinesis]], can swim in lava, and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers summon her]] CoolShades [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers or a pair of diving goggles.]] The latter at least appears to be a stock Gem ability, as one universal Gem power is shapeshifting, which they use to create their clothes. [[spoiler:Granted, Garnet's powers come from two ''[[OppositesAttract very]]'' [[OppositesAttract different gems]] in a perpetual FusionDance, and their skills aren't simply combined. She's shown Ruby's strength and Sapphire's visions, but not Sapphire's levitation or Ruby's fire powers, and the electrokinesis appears to be her own unique ability.]]
** Rose Quartz (and by extension her son Steven) had quite the diverse array of powers as well: [[SwissArmyTears Healing Tears]], a GreenThumb, projecting an extremely powerful [[BarrierWarrior shielding bubble]], controlled descent and/or floating, and more. Compared to other quartzes, who get one or two combat-related abilities like a RollingAttack, it's decidedly impressive. [[spoiler:In fact, Rose wasn't a quartz at all, but a Diamond, the UltimateLifeform among Gems.]]
