Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' has a couple of spells interacting with the Akashic Record, described as "the extraplanar repository of all experiences that have ever occurred". The most amusing is the 9th-level psychic-only spell Akashic Form, which allows you to edit the Akashic Record to make a perfect record of your physical body at the time the spell is cast that lasts for 24 hours, allowing you to come back from the dead exactly as you were (with equipment if you decide to appear where you died, without if you decide to appear farther away).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/AutumnBay'', sorcerers can access the Akashic Record. In fact, if they aren't careful, or are inexperienced, it is possible that they get lost inside their own personal "bubble" ([[http://autumnbaycomics.com/comics/51/ this happens to Ghoul]] as part of his TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening).

* ''TheDragonDoctors'' had this; Kili the shaman accessed the specific Akashic records used by the long-dead first incarnation of the Hearts Society to research what happened to their patient, an unfortunate young woman who'd been trapped in a cave and turned to stone for 2000 years.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' features the Sword of Akasha, which is being used by the Emperor of Britannia to... Well, they kind of forgot about it after the first season. At least it sounded cool. The sword was likely just the name given to [[spoiler: the physics-defying place where one could use the power of Geass to access The Collective Subconscious, A.K.A. God]].
** It's eventually revealed to be the key to Emperor Charles' [[spoiler:and Marianne's attempted]] [[AssimilationPlot Ragnarok Connection]].

* In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'', the SuperRobot Cybuster, aside from being able to access the Akashic Records via the in-built Laplace Computer, has a LimitBreak known as the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-tREeJRQDQ "Akashic Buster"]], which, mind you, probably has nothing to do with the actual records themselves. [[RuleOfCool But, hey, it sounds cool...]] Actually elaborated upon in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha 3''; various infinite energy sources like [[Manga/GetterRobo Getter Rays]], [[SpaceRunawayIdeon Ide]], and PsychicPower are aspects of the Akashic Record...also known as ''Fate''.

* In various media by [[Franchise/{{Nasuverse}} Type-Moon]] the ultimate goal of the magi of the Mage's Association is to find a path to obtain the Akashic Records. Another name for this in the {{Nasuverse}} is The Origin, and also the goal of every magus. Fundamentally, the Akashic Records is a database for the world's history, and serves as a place where souls are recycled. While some mages have achieved this, almost all of them vanish without a trace once they do, and it's assumed that they AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence or something; the Mage's Association would like to access it and not have that happen to them. There are a number (five) mages in history who came extremely close and accessed a tiny portion of Akasha, which gave them a spell of True Magic, instantly making them among the most powerful mages on the planet.

* One season finale of ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' featured the already defeated BigBad going after a literal and physical version of the Records and rewriting it so that they were never defeated in the first place thousands of years ago. The good guys are only able to undo (or detect) the damage because [[spoiler: sneaky little Jade accidentally tore out a physical piece of the Records just before the change was written into it; the piece just happened to contain the description of ''her'' becoming a force for good against the Big Bad.]]
