* ''{{Okami}}'' also uses this one, where paintbrush techniques can pull various elements across the screen. It gets really bad when later brush techniques can pull these elements out of nowhere. Then again, we are talking about gods here....

* Used heavily within ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' and its sister game, ''VideoGame/CityOfVillains''. Superpowered characters and {{NPC}}s regularly toss lightning, summon fire in a variety of forms, create blizzards or jagged shards of ice, even generate radioactive material on demand. Made most obvious during Hurl, which picks up a chunk of rock off the ground and tosses it, even when used in the middle of an ocean or on top of an empty shipping container, or in ''mid-air''.
** Or Propel, which materializes things like crates and pool tables for you to (you guessed it) propel at the enemy.
*** This, however, is explicitly stated to be a form of teleportation; it's a Gravity Control power.
*** And [[ImprobableWeaponUser it]] [[RuleOfCool is]] [[RuleOfFunny awesome]].
*** Doubly so when you discover that no two players see the same object. "Nice lamppost!" "That was a desk."

* In ''{{Chaotic}}'', the Liquilizer is capable of refilling itself with just the water in the air.

* This trope is averted in ''{{Drowtales}}'', where elemental sorcery requires the presence of the element in question. For example, [[AnIcePerson ice]] users need freezable liquid, and [[PlayingWithFire fire]] users either carry around so-called "fire pots" or strike a spark when they need some flames.

* In ''{{Exalted}}'', the Dragon-Blooded don't ''need'' elemental baggage. They '''''are''''' elemental baggage, scions of a long line of elemental heroes, sons and daughters of the (obviously) Immaculate Dragons.

* In TheDarkEye, most magical traditions need a small amount of one of the six elements is to summon a servant, djinn or master elemental of that particular element. If the element in question is not pure (sand instead of stone for a stone elemental) it will be more difficult, should it be purer, it will be easier (diamond instead of stone for a stone elemental).

* [[PoisonousPerson Coco]] from ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' plays with this trope. He can only produce a limited amount of poison at a time as his poison is composed of his own bodily fluids, in other words, the poison he produces the more dehydrated he becomes. At the start of the series his maximum was 15 liters of poison, however due to his Gourmet Cells evolving and learning Food Immersion, he can produce a larger quantity of poison than before, although their is still a limit.

* Addressed during the Bohrok arc of the ''{{Bionicle}}'' comics. Gali's water-summoning abilities apparently work by forcing water vapor in the air to condense on command. However, she's able to summon a flood in the middle of a desert, even though there shouldn't be that much water vapor in the atmospheric column over a dry desert.
* In ''{{Bionicle}}'', each Toa wield an element. To control it, they need elemental energy that slowly recharges itself when not in use, or by absorbing their own element. This energy allows them to create their element out of thin air (shooting fire or water), or to control nearby supplies of it (earthquakes, wind, etc.). As soon as they run out, however, they can't do a thing.

* Truly {{Averted|Trope}} in ''CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'': The Ring of Water could only control existing bodies of water. Used straight with the Ring of Fire, though.

* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', FunctionalMagic often allows elemental powers to be conjured out of nothing or it may otherwise require a small spell component to cast (with more expensive components needed for more powerful spells). Sometimes the powers are explicitly drawn from elemental planes (particularly summoning spells), which double as exotic adventuring locales. If you're actually ''on'' those planes, spells involving the plane's element get a free power boost, while spells involving their opposed element -- fire/water or earth/air -- are much harder to cast. There ''are'' a few spells which may only function if there's at least some amount of the element present, and these are usually given names such as "control water".
