* [[AllThereInTheManual According to the backstory]], the Psi Emitters in ''Franchise/StarCraft'' amplify the "signature" of a telepath, allowing them to be heard over huge distances, at least by the Zerg. Also, Protoss [[PowerCrystal Khaydarin crystals]] amplify the user's psionic abilities in various ways, such as the Zealots' bracers, which allow them to form Psi Blades.

* ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'':
** In "Evil-Lyn's Plot", it is revealed that He-Man's chest harness is made of coridite, a substance that amplifies strength. Skeletor makes an amulet out of coridite that makes him strong enough to grapple with He-Man, at least until He-Man manages to destroy it.
** In "The Games", Skeletor unveils a device called the Evilgizer, which is said to increase the evil of its target. He uses it on his dimwitted henchman Spikor, who becomes chosen as Evil's Champion in a contest by the Bendari. Oddly, it didn't affect his personality or power level at all.

*** The Portal of Skulls carried by Bloodsecrators of the Bloodbound Warhordes are powerful icons of [[WarGod the Blood God]] that, once opened, creates a rift in reality that allows the rage of Khorne to saturate the surrounding area, driving any nearby followers of the Lord of Skulls into a frenzy that boosts their attacks and grants them reckless courage.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'': Ganon's Triforce of Power usually acts like this, enhancing his already impressive physical strength and immense magic power to quite literally god-like levels. Zelda's Triforce of Wisdom is also hinted to be the source of her own powerful magics, and is probably the only reason she can affect Ganon after he's been weakened. Curiously the Triforce of Courage never seems to do the same for Link.

* ''Webcomic/CucumberQuest'' has the Hocus Crocus, a flower rumored to multiply a person's magical capabilities by the number of years it took to bloom. This is generally considered a joke because the Hocus Crocus takes one year to bloom... until one specimen appears that took two. [[spoiler:It works, incidentally.]]

* Comicbook/CaptainBritain (Brian Braddock) was originally dependent on his Amulet of Right for his strength, and his Star Scepter for flight. When Merlyn gave Brian a new costume, he integrated those items into the suit, and then when he had to bring Brian BackFromTheDead, he remade Brian's body so that the powers were a part of him, but the suit still served as an amplifier, increasing his abilities while he wore it. Brian's powers were also tied to the British Isles and its link to Otherworld, so the suit also allowed him to keep his powers while away from Britain; when the suit was destroyed in ''Comicbook/{{Inferno}}'' and he was stranded in New York, his powers waned until he could return home. Eventually his powers evolved again so that they were dependent on his own confidence, but whatever suit he's wearing still tends to serve as an amplifier/backup power source.
