I can only think of moves with recoil, but those are fairly rare both in-game and competitive. Weather (hail or sandstorm) wouldn't affect it, because they do damage at the end of the turn.

life orb damage?
Life Orb damage

Iron Barbs/Rocky Helmet

Liquid Ooze (on draining moves)

Recoil moves

Ally uses attack before you in Double/Triple Battle

Parental Bond (if you somehow manage to get it with Skill Swap)

Say your Pokemon is slower and the opponents hits and you use assurance then the power is doubled

That's Payback. Assurance doubles if the /opponent/ has already taken damage that turn.
