* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'', Osmosians, such as Kevin 11, can absorb anything into themselves, but they need to have something to absorb, so Gwen gets the idea for Kevin to carry rocks along with him to provide him with armor. He says he needs a lot more metal to make his armor.

** It's addressed somewhat in third edition. Several Brawl charms create tentacles out of water. Generally this requires a water source nearby, but if one is unavailable a dragonblooded can shed a level of anima to create some instead.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' had Frozone using water that's either in the air or in his body, and one scene suggests that the air is too dry and he's short on body water so he's screwed, but after a single drink from a cup from a water cooler, he creates enough ice to entirely cover a man and ''stop a bullet''. Mind you, he'd just moved from a burning building into a cool one.

* ''MagicalStarSign'' does this with each character being able to manipulate a specific element, in order to put out a forest fire (On a [[PlanetOfHats Forest World]] the characters had to use their powers together in order to crush a rock, create a spring, and then spread the water.

* The Logia (and certain Paramecia) Devil Fruits of ''Franchise/OnePiece'' run off the AWizardDidIt explanation: one of powers they grant is specifically noted to be the ability to produce as mass amounts of whatever element the Logia fruit in question represents.

** Not so much in the ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' manga. Almost at the end of the third arc, the day is saved because Blue's Blastoise had run out of water [[spoiler:and Red filled it with flammable water from a mystical healing spring]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''TabletopGame/ArsMagica'', matter created by magic has NoOntologicalInertia unless the spell is augmented with RitualMagic and a valuable form of condensed {{Mana}} called ''vis''. A mage can go around [[MakingASplash conjuring torrents of water]] out of nowhere, but they won't last long enough to hydrate anyone unless they make the extra investment.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' by JimButcher averts this at times. While it is entirely possible to create fire, solid objects (formed from ectoplasm, they collapse when magic is no longer sustaining them), and energy through the use of a wizard's personal will, they can also channel existing energy. Emotions can also be used to power spells. Harry has frozen water by drawing heat from it to create fire and channeled the energy of a storm, but has also just created fire and tossed it around, and [[spoiler: after becoming the Winter Knight, gains the ability to create cold.]]

* ''{{Franchise/Mistborn}}'' by BrandonSanderson has a more literal example where Allomancers must literally consume specific metals (both elemental and alloys) to fuel their abilities. Each element and alloy corresponds to a specific power and running low on (or out of) a particular element comes up from time to time. Allomancers generally carry several vials of metal flakes suspended in alcohol to refuel during encounters. Controlling the single known source of one (fictional) metal is actually one of the pillars of the economy early on.

** For example, in one of the online story serials, [[BlowYouAway Lewa]] and a group of other beings are suddenly transported into space and he's able to create air bubbles around their heads so they can breath.
