* '''[[SuperSmoke Smoke/Gas]]''': The ability to control a cloudy-looking element like smoke, mist or gas. While this kind of power has limited capabilities at dealing direct damage, it can still be effectively used in combat by suffocating enemies or hiding oneself from view for a potential sneak attack. The associations tend to be pretty negative as smoke or gas rarely signal something good (fires, eruptions, imminent explosions, health risks caused by smoking, gas chambers, etc), thus they could be considered the DarkerAndEdgier form of [[BlowYouAway Air]] (mist is not much better due to its presence in mysteries, hauntings and supernatural phenomena in general). Often becomes a subset of Fire or Poison (or Water/Ice, in the case of mist), but it might also show up as its own thing.

* '''[[HavingABlast Explosions]]''': The power to [[StuffBlowingUp blow stuff up]]. It's very often a subpower of Fire (or possibly even its DarkerAndEdgier counterpart, as while Fire can be portrayed as a source of light or warm, Explosions are always violent and dangerous), although any energy-based element, like Radiation, Lightning or Light, can potentially have this as well (Metal too, which bombs and missiles tend to be made of). Weirdly, if the wielder of this kind of ability is not a MadBomber, then he will be the complete opposite: a [[TheStoic stoic]] type who creates [[DemolitionsExpert controlled explosions]], contrasting with the sheer destructiveness of this power.

* Many of the aliens in the ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'' series have these kind of powers. Most notably however is in Ben10UltimateAlien, Ben obtains the forms of five aliens who each possess one of these: Water, Fire, Wind, Earth, and Lightning. [[spoiler:This might be the reason the newest BigBad intends to [[AllYourPowersCombined absorb their powers]]]].

* '''[[HeartBeatDown Heart/Love]]:''' The element of emotions and spirit. May involve [[TheEmpath empathic abilities]], ThePowerOfFriendship [[ThePowerOfLove and/or love]], or {{healing|Hands}}. On the other hand, it may involve focusing that power into a [[CareBearStare coherent beam of destruction]] (in which case it may be conflated with Light or Life). Usually turns out to be either the [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower most powerful element of all]], or the [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway most useless]]. Sometimes [[InformedAbility the claim it's the former when it's really the latter]]. Heart is also [[WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers more often]] [[WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}} than not]] used as a sort of glue for [[CombinedEnergyAttack combining powers together]], so if not TheHeart, this is often the power of {{the leader}}, even if they aren't very strong themselves.

* '''[[SoulPower Soul/Spirit/Aura]]:''' The ability to manipulate spiritual energy, or spirits themselves. This is occasionally involved with religion, too. People possessing this power can probably talk to the dead, as well. Sometimes related to necromancy, PsychicPowers, FauxFlame, and especially KiAttacks. This can be either a villainous or heroic power, depending on [[TheDarkArts how it's portrayed.]]

* '''{{Poison|ousPerson}}:''' Powers relating to poison, acid, disease and sometimes garbage and pollution. Can be classified as an element and/or status effect depending on the work. Sometimes folded into Death, though it can also be [[LightIsNotGood a more sinister application of Life]] (by supercharging the micro-organisms that cause disease) or Nature (a lot of plants and animals are poisonous).

* '''[[{{Lunacy}} Luna/Moon]]:''' Power relating to the moon. Can be considered evil, but not always. Usually relates to [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolves]], and by extension [[TarotMotifs insanity or confusion]]. May involve [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity power in exchange for sanity]]. It may also involve [[MakingASplash Water]], since the moon's gravity controls the ocean's tides.

* '''{{Magnetism|Manipulation}}:''' The ability to control magnetic fields; most commonly appears as a form of telekinesis which only works on metal. Often folded in with either Electricity or Metal, but appears as a distinct element on occasion. When both Metal and Magnetism exist, Metal will generally be more powerful and Magnetism more flexible (such as allowing the user to attack and defend at the same time). In some cases Magnetism users [[LogicalWeakness need a pre-existing supply of metal to use their powers]], while Metal users can simply [[ElementalBaggage create it from thin air]].

When combined with Electricity, you get Electromagnetism, which (along with Gravity below) is one of the four fundamental forces.
