* ''{{Bionicle}}'' started with six elements: Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Stone, and Ice. Then Light was introduced as the SixthRanger. Though in this case it's not necessarily ''stronger'' than the other six, just rarer and more effective against the villain's Shadow powers. There's also a bunch of additional elements acknowledged in the ExpandedUniverse, such as Iron, Sonics, Psionics, Lightning, Gravity, Plant Life, etc.; but they're way less prominent than the main ones.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''VideoGame/LegacyOfKain'' series has two different versions of this, the first from ''Blood Omen'' and the second only fully realised in ''Defiance'':
** The original game introduced the Pillars of Nosgoth, each aligned with a different (rather non-classical) element, with eight of them arranged in a semi-circle. The ninth Pillar, representing Balance, stood apart from the others in the center.
** ''Defiance'' introduced the full range of ElementalPowers for Raziel's Soul Reaver: the four classics plus Light and Darkness to juxtapose each other. The seventh and most powerful was Spirit, which permanently replaced the non-elemental Reaver to signify its newfound purity.

Added DiffLines:

* Each of the original planets in ''ShadowRaiders'' correspond to an element; Planet Water [[spoiler:gets destroyed in the first episode]], Planet Rock (the earth), Planet Fire (ask CaptainObvious), Planet Ice (a very cold windy place, may represent Air, but in some media Ice is an element on itself) and a fifth planet called Planet Bone. Of course, the main antagonist of the series is an errant PlanetEater world named Planet Beast made of "beast matter". A seventh "element" can be Tek Planet (made of... technology).

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/PathOfExile'' has a fourth non-standard element called Chaos. Chaos damage is different from the [[FireIceLightning other three elements]] in that it's not considered "Elemental Damage" and while it doesn't have a status effect associated with it, has a special property of bypassing [[DeflectorShield Energy Shields]]. Despite not being considered an element, your character receives a Chaos resistance penalty in higher difficulties like the other 3 elements and while only a small number of enemies use them, it's harder to find chaos resistance and damage in general and those rare enemies that ''do'' deal chaos damage are going to be dangerous.

* ''CaptainPlanet'' featured the element of Heart, which was described as important, and indeed, [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower has pretty powerful abilities]] [[FridgeLogic when you think about it]], [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway but ended up a source of derision in pop culture writ]] [[MisappliedPhlebotinum largely because of how poorly utilized it was.]]

* Five classic elements are powered by six [[WeirdMoon colored moons]] in ''SkiesOfArcadia'' (although on a technical level, there are six, as both [[MakingASplash water]] and [[BlowYouAway wind]] elements are drawn from the Blue Moon; the other five have one element). The sixth element, drawn from the Silver Moon, is [[YinYangBomb life and death]] - spells that [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin either kill opponents instantly or resurrect your allies]] (or cure status ailments). [[SquishyWizard Fina]], as a member of the civilization that once lied under the Silver Moon's orbit, learns this magic the fastest.

* In ''VideoGame/Klonoa2LunateasVeil'', there are four bells Tranquility, Joy, Discord and Indecision but it is revealed there is a fifth: [[spoiler:Sorrow. In this case, it does exist within the ElementalRockPaperScissors scheme, but it's been suppressed.]]
