* The Pkunk of ''[[VideoGame/StarControl Star Control II]]'' are an interesting inversion. Being a very psychic race, they designed their ships to use psychic energy as a power source. In a fight, they continually insult and trash-talk their opponents, working themselves into a frenzy of psychic rage that feeds their weapons systems. In other words, they have literally weaponized hate.

* The Emotion Entities of TheDCU. As long as there is at least one being in the universe that can feel the emotions they embody, they will always exist. Although they do not feed on the emotions they embody. They are in fact the avatars of the combined power of each emotion (rage, greed, fear, will, hope, compassion, love) felt by every being in the universe.
