* ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' has this in spades:
** Hades has all kinds of incredible powers--he can [[PlayingWithFire easily control flame]], never ages, and possesses immortality. Unfortunately, he's been assigned a job that he hates--dealing with dead people all day--while the other gods get to spend their days on the sunny Mount Olympus. Because of the nature of the job (there's always someone new dying), he's stuck in the Underworld and never gets a break.

* Rapunzel of ''Disney/{{Tangled}}''. Oh sure, it's awesome to have hair that glows and heals any wound and reverses aging, but when you get kidnapped from your birth parents, and said hair grows 3 times as fast as regular hair, there are problems that can arise. For instance, it apparently takes 3 hours to brush her hair, and 6 hours to wash it. And with 70 feet of it by the time you're 18, it can also be a real drag (literally) to lug around. And yes, you could braid it to make walking easier, but then if it catches on anything, you're stuck.
* ''Disney/WreckItRalph'': "WHY DO I FIX EVERYTHING I TOUCH?!" MrFixIt powers are cool and all until you're trying to break out of prison and your efforts are simply making the prison ''sturdier''. Like a reverse ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman.

* Elsa in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' considers her powers this [[spoiler:until she learns to control them]]. Having [[AnIcePerson powers over ice and snow]] is cool. Nearly killing your little sister when you are both just children and years later [[spoiler: accidentally putting your whole kingdom in eternal winter]] due to PowerIncontinence is not.

** Meg has apparently been granted immortality and eternal youth by a god. Trouble is, that god is Hades. And she only gained her powers by making a DealWithTheDevil--she sold her soul to save her boyfriend's life, and he repaid her by running off with another woman. She's now has to do whatever Hades tells her, and as a result, doesn't seem to have any friends or people she's close to.

* Moses from ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'' is God's Chosen One, but he is forced to be the instrument of the 10 Plagues of Egypt. This pits him against his once beloved brother and old home, and he's very unhappy to have to bring destruction in God's behalf to a place he once loved and getting entirely innocent people in the crossfire.

* The narrator of Music/TypeONegative's "Suspended In Dusk". Sure, he's an immortal vampire with who knows what kind of powers, but hecan't keep love interests as they all end up succumbing to old age while he lives past their expiration dates.


* In a ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' [[http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/2008-09-13/ strip]], Dilbert's mother is visiting a psychic, but forgot her purse and thus couldn't pay. The psychic puts "The Curse of Competence" on her firstborn son, prompting Dilbert's mother to wonder why that would be a bad thing. As Dilbert (her firstborn son) finds out, when you're the only competent person in a world full of idiots, you'll be the one everyone asks to make things work.
