The user has developed incredible abilities by/through an extensive/excessive training regimen. Originally beginning as an individual with few or no special powers, engaging in specialized exercises (physical, mental, spiritual, etc.), allows the trainee to develop enhanced, potentially supernatural skills and techniques. Based on the nature of the training, continued practice can lead one to the greatest levels of one's desired discipline.

In several cases, the user possesses natural talent and special powers, but train themselves regardless in order to hone their skills and reach their full potential.

Applications (Examples)




  • Lack of training may cause the user's abilities to fluctuate.
  • Training will take time.
  • Because of the Plateau effect, the user may reach the peak of their physical limits and never improve beyond that.
