* ComicBook/TheMightyThor has the Belt of Strength, which doubles his strength and endurance, and Mjolnir, which focuses Thor's innate ElementalPowers. The Belt is straight from the [[Myth/NorseMythology source material]]. If need be, Thor could increase the boosting effect by tightening the belt.

* The "Meteor Shard", a MacGuffin recovered from Hell's Gate that changes hands a few times in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack''. Towards the end of the first series, Amber breaks it in pieces among her followers and uses the bulk of it to power the network of Dolls that guide Hei through the Gate, but later she spontaneously pulls the complete Shard out of her pocket due to the [[RealityIsOutToLunch strange properties of the Gate]]. Then, Hei uses it to [[spoiler:enhance his power to RealityWarper levels, enabling him to alter matter on a quantum level]]. In backstory one such thing was used to [[spoiler:make a good chunk of South America completely inaccessible]].

* DungeonsAndDragons specifically has two primary amplifiers: pearls of power, which increase a caster's magical stamina allowing more spells to be cast in a day than usual, and metamagic rods, which increase the actual power and effect of spells cast using them a number of times per day.

* One of the reasons that OldWorldOfDarkness was famously a min/maxer's paradise is that almost all game lines had a skill that turned a relatively common substance, usually the basic fuel for powers, into this. Vampires without celerity needed blood to live, and had to burn it up to use powers. Vampires with celerity burned blood to take extra turns, letting them use all of their powers (including basic ones like "sharp teeth") several times before the enemy even acted.
* The Mortis Engines from TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}, and its sequel TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar, are overflowing with the power of death magic and can boost the spell-casting abilities of necromancers who practice their art nearby.

* Several objects or substances in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}''. Antidermis, the substance that makes up the Makuta species, acts as a sort of steroid to Brutaka's race. The Nui Stone drains the elemental energies of nearby beings, giving its owner more power. There are also elemental masks which can enhance the extant elemental powers of their wearers, and the Mask of Elemental Energies can even replenish them. The Mask of Fate unlocks the physical potential of their bearers -- it boosts their athletic abilities to their limits, but doesn't allow feats that the wearer's species would be physically unable to perform.
