* ''Theatre/PeterPan'': The TropeNamer, dating [[OlderThanTheyThink all the way back to the 1904 stageplay]]. Tinkerbell [[TakingTheBullet intentionally drinks a poison]] meant for Peter, and Peter [[BreakingTheFourthWall appeals to children everywhere]] to [[InvokedTrope invoke this trope.]] Naturally, this was an AudienceParticipation bit.

* ''TabletopGame/GeniusTheTransgression'' features something of an [[InvertedTrope inversion]] with Bardos. When enough people believe in something, and then suddenly ''stop'' believing (like, say, if it's publicly disproven), the energy of all those minds changing their opinion releases Mania into the world. This has created, among other things, an underground world full of dinosaurs, an army of Martian invaders, and a race of Aryan "[[TheUbermensch Übermenschen]]" of genuinely superhuman ability.

* ''Literature/SummerOfNight'': This is vaguely and strangely alluded to when one of the BigBad's minions explains that it is [[HolyBurnsEvil vulnerable to holy water]] due to a habit acquired from hanging around in the Vatican in the past. Of course, the details are very unclear. Is it about the monster's unwilling Catholic beliefs? Is it just an excuse and the holiness itself really has an effect?

* In ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'', Zooey mentions that Primal Beasts are born from the people's desires or wishes. During the Fate Episodes of her permanent version, she has to "be one with the world" in order to prevent an oncoming threat that could end all life. Days past and Zooey never returned. Then Vyrn motivates the crew to wish and think for Zooey to come back, and she does.

* ''WebVideo/ImAMarvelAndImADC''. When {{Deadpool}} runs out of bullets he asks the audience to do this to make new bullets appear in his guns. When this doesn't work he calls the audience a bunch of amputees.

* This is the entire theme in the music video for "Bury It" by {{CHVRCHES}}. Lauren's belief (with the support of her friends) enables her to gain [[ChunkyUpdraft telekinetic powers]]. Haley showing the other characters that she can fly [[IBelieveICanFly enables them to do it]]. When Martin has a moment of doubt, he has a [[DieOrFly Die or Fly]] moment. [[spoiler: He doesn't die.]]

* [[http://www.gutenberg.org/files/7477/7477-h/7477-h.htm Lord Dunsany]] uses this. To say where would spoil an excellent short story.

** Despite being the trope namer, this is actually something of a subversion. Tinker Bell says that a fairy dies every time someone says they don't believe in fairies; the statement seems to be all that is necessary regardless of actual belief. Similarly, Tinker Bell never mentions needing to believe to save her, just clapping appears to be enough.
