"Now you finally get to see my all!"
― Vegeta (Dragon Ball series) to Jiren after achieving Super Saiyan Blue Evolved.
"Power...Born out of nature, Coveted by men; Wars rage on, And victors are crowned. But true power can never be lost or won. True power comes from within."
― Emily Thorne/Amanda Clark (Revenge)

Capabilities

User can unleash and amplify their hidden powers and dormant potential abilities to the fullest and greatest extent. This allows the user to unlock the power that lies within their very being, granting them feats that defy logic.

When the user unlocks their true power, they are able to do just about anything that is tied to their abilities to levels unfathomable, and their power is potent that if the user is ever stripped of it, it is never truly gone, but merely locked away again. If users manage to unlock it again, the powers that were lost are regained even stronger than ever before depending on the resolve of the user.

Note: One's power can be either magical, scientific, divine, etc, but in truth, it lacks any outside based forces/forms except on the user's sheer willpower alone.

Legendary Capabilities

According to most legends, true power is an aspect of one's being, making it nearly impossible if not completely impossible to take away, and much like Potential Creation, it's neither random nor chosen, it's the immeasurable unbound internal power with transcending capacity to do anything, that lies dormant from within oneself.

Legends also say that the true meaning of power is that sometimes it's not about mastering supernatural powers, but about mastering oneself. Basically, it means that those who know how to unleash and conquer their true self and nature, they can't be conquered by anyone else. Legends also proclaim that true power can only be found from within, and even though it dwells within everyone, only a few can harness it.

Another important point, true power is unbound by the laws of magic, science, logic, and divinity, and is completely independent of such forces as well, for true power in it's purest form and capability is unimaginable to all but the person using such unfathomable power. True power in many legends also proved so mighty that it can gain and/or mimic all the traits of any magical, scientific and divine properties and transcend them into having legendary status. This makes the power strong enough for the user to transcend even their own being and bring out their abilities to their absolute, truest form.
