Added DiffLines:

** Kaine, the second Scarlet Spider, picked up a similar set of abilities after his return... as well as, much to his displeasure, the ability to communicate with spiders. There are several where this power has come in handy, but Kaine, a determinedly serious angsty anti-hero, refuses to use it unless absolutely necessary.


** Yuuka Kazami is a youkai with incredibly high levels of strength, endurance and magical energy, and (possibly) the original creator of Marisa's [[KamehameHadoken Master Spark]]. Her actual power is [[GreenThumb manipulation of flowers]], which is referred to as "more of an extra".
** Eirin Yagokoro's power is being a [[SuperIntelligence super genius]] [[TheMedic who can make any medicine conceivable]], which is by no means a lame power but it doesn't sound like it could stand up to [[SuperpowerLottery many of the overpowered denizens of Gensokyo]] as far as combat goes. However, she has lived for possibly millions (!) of years and has a proportional knowledge of magic. She can form a sealed barrier around ''the whole Earth'', and implies that's not even her most powerful spell. Yeah, needless to say she is a FinalBoss.
** Remilia Scarlet '''might''' be a case of this. Her power is the "manipulation of fate", which if taken to its full potential should make her a RealityWarper. However, this does not seem to be the case, and her little sister seems to think that Remilia literally made her power up, which would not be out of character given that Remilia is as close to being an Evil Eye-type {{Chuunibyou}} as a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent legitimate vampire]] can be. Common consensus seems to be that Remilia's ability, if it's even real, is more of a [[WindsOfDestinyChange luck-influencing]] power than anything, she can increase the probability that things play out in her favor, but not cause unrealistic events. Regardless of any of this, however, she is still a vampire, which means she is endowed with SuperStrength comparable to that of oni, SuperSpeed comparable to that of tengu, a HealingFactor that allows her to survive basically anything, and enough magical power to wreathe all of Gensokyo in blood-colored mist.
** Another potential entrant in this trope is Yuugi Hoshiguma, with the "power to wield unexplainable phenomena". In a world [[FantasyKitchenSink where everything is unexplained phenomena]] [[WorldOfWeirdness and therefore, nothing is]], this could be the strongest power of all, or the most useless one. Nothing in canon explains her power in the slightest, and [[TheWikiRule the wiki]]'s stance on the matter is "damned if we know". At any rate, she is still an oni, and one of the Four Devas of the Mountain to boot. You know you're a badass when a race whose members are known to occasionally shatter mountains gives you the moniker "the Strong".

* As in [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog the games]], Silver the Hedgehog from ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' has telekinetic powers that can do just about anything the writer can think of, with him being able to fly and throw meteorites with his mind. Here his amazing psychic abilities can also ''give you a headache.'' Normally he can only read the minds of other psychics, and even then only if they'll let him anyway. But it came in handy in issue 217 when he used a psychic booster to release a herd of walruses from mind control.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' features Captain Hindsight. Not only can he fly, but he also has... extraordinary hindsight. This is treated as CursedWithAwesome. Interestingly, as denoted by his superhero moniker, the extraordinary hindsight is considered his ''main'' power. It doesn't even occur to anyone that he could use ''that'' to save people from a burning building.
* ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'': Stitch has super strength, a super-retentive brain (can learn any language, alien, human, or otherwise, in a very brief time period), agility, quick thinking -- he's created to be a [[PersonOfMassDestruction being of mass destruction]]. He can also act as a gramophone (stick a claw on a vinyl disc, open Stitch's mouth, and swing to the Elvis). And regurgitate and perfectly reassemble a cake he just ate .

** Then there's Jack Rakan, whose portfolio includes SuperStrength, invincibility, ability to [[CrazyAwesome disregard the laws of physics]], and... can [[TheNoseKnows locate enemies with alarming precision by the scent of their panties]]. Which [[PantyThief he stole right off of them]].

* WonderWoman has flight, superstrength second only to Superman, [[SuperReflexes reflexes fast enough to block bullets]] with her bracelets (and indestructible bracelets), an indestructible magic lasso that can break enchantments and force anyone bound with it to answer any question truthfully and a razor-sharp tiara she can throw like a boomerang. Did you know she can also [[SpeaksFluentAnimal talk to animals]]? Neither did most of the people who write her comic, judging by how often she does it. She can also talk with trees.
* Nightcrawler of the ''ComicBook/XMen'' can teleport (taking other people along - [[PortalCut or just pieces of them]] - if he wants), climb walls and ceilings, turn invisible in shadows, and has superhuman agility and a prehensile tail he can use to fence with three swords at once. He also has the ability to know whether or not he's in his home dimension. He can count the number of times he's used this power for anything other than instinctively ending up in the right dimension when he teleports on the fingers of one hand. And Nightcrawler only has three fingers per hand.

In ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'' She also has the Venus Sulphur Smoke attack, that ''summons Venus' horribly stinking atmosphere''.
