I just want to say Kamijou Touma because he is this topic was kind of made for him. Negating any supernatural power including his own luck...can beat just about everyone at the top but can't defeat those at the bottom kind of thing.

Also from the Toaru world, Misaka Mikoto. She's Academy City's #3 level 5 ESPer, but because she is so powerful, she ends up being dragged down into the darkness of the city. You know, Kihara stuff and the like.

All gifts are also curses, because all gifts test their owners. That is the nature of power, it is always both a blessing and a curse. Even for someone like Belldandy in Ah My Goddess, her powers can always be used incorrectly or for the wrong reason. And the stronger the power, the greater the responsibility, some rise to the occasion, others fail. But I cannot think of any character's powers in any Anime that cannot be seen as both a gift and a curse.


Bonus Question:
1) Which anime character uses their powers for fairly stupid reasons?


If it is a humorous or harem-esque show, the main character. If it is more serious, pretty much any side character with a power.

The way he punches someone is a curse.

Hiizumi Akina (Yozakura Quartet)

his tuning ability has the power to adjust the spiritual alignment of it's target whether it be person or object, but if he uses it too often or on too large of an object, it can force his own body out of alignment.

Simon the Digger from TTGL.

His Spiral Power is the power of evolution, allowing him and his friends to keep evolving and getting stronger as their will grows with them, but taking it too far would destroy the universe.

Koyomi Araragi has it pretty rough.

On the one hand he is part-vampire and can survive what would otherwise be mortal wounds.

On the other hand this means he can survive being swung around by his intestines, while still being alive and able to feel it...

I can't say I envy that.

Rin Okumura
Blue Exorcist
Similar to Naruto and the Nine-Tails really cool power but people treat him like a monster. (Not the whole anime though)

Eren in Attack on Titan.

Would mechas also count? Cause I'd also say Shinji and Eva Unit 01.

Besides his ability to transform into a Titan, his entire being is a gift AND curse.
