I'm confused about this trope. Half the entries seems to be about how aliens deliberately gave someone powers, instead of an accident from their interactions. Like the Green Lanterns, giving someone else powers is their entire thing, entirely on purpose. I just thought it was like a random empowering.

Do classic fantasy examples like werewolf/vampire bites count for this trope? I mean, as far as I can tell, it's basically the same concept.
