* ''Manga/DragonBall'' Anyone with Saiyan blood has the potential to reach new levels of strength if sufficiently enraged. Human/Saiyan [[HybridPower hybrids]] find it easier to pull off since by default it's in a Saiyan's nature to repress their emotions, while their human half nullifies this out.

* [[TheBerserker Natsu]] of ''Manga/FairyTail'' is an example of this, as the ''[[BerserkButton flame of emotion]]'' that is the source of power for his Dragon Slayer magic causes him to actually become stronger the angrier he gets.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' also had a thing about Benders' emotions affecting their bending, and specific states of mind were required for each element. For instance, Zuko firebends by tapping into his anger. Later he discovers that his firebending is stronger when inspired by positive emotions, like a given love and passion for it. Conversly Iroh states that a fire bender cna only bend lightning if they are sufficently in control of their emotions and able to separate them. .
** A large concern in the earlier seasons is Aang's temper as his avatar state is awakened by moments of extreme emotional distress or when his life is in danger turning him into a PersonOfMassDestruction and a large focus of his character development is him learning to accept and later control the Avatar state
** In the SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', light and darkness are closely connected emotions, as per [[spoiler:Iroh's]] words, "in the SpiritWorld your emotions become your reality". Unalaq was capable of turning spirits dark by projecting his own anger and negative emotions, while Korra eventually learned to purify spirits by using her own inner peace and balance.

** Hime of ''Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure'' is incredibly weak, having started out as a sheltered, shy and selfish princess scared out of her mind by the monsters [[spoiler:she accidentally released]] and having what little self-esteem she has left crushed by Cure Fortune making sure she NeverLivedItDown. She gets better as time goes on, earning herself friends and gaining the confidence to overcome her fears. Also doesn't hurt that Cure Fortune eats a hefty helping of humble pie later on.

Added DiffLines:

* Though not outright stated, the powers seen in ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' are implied to be ran on emotional states. Some notable examples:
** In TheMovie of ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar'' have Saki and Mai's Cure forms cut out on them as they get into a terrible argument. Once they realize the error of their ways, apologize and mend bridges, their powers return.
** Karen of ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5'' was actually ''refused'' her powers the first time around because she wanted to act on selfish reasons. A change of heart thanks to a very determined Nozomi finally gets her her powers.
** Tsubomi of ''Anime/HeartCatchPrettyCure'' fluctuates in power because of her rebuilding self-esteem. By the end of the series, she's still pretty weak, but she makes up for it with the bonds made by her friends.
** Part of the initial storyarc in ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'' had Hibiki and Kanade trying to work together as friends and Cures after finally overcoming an initial incident that ended their friendship. Since they need to be "in harmony" to get their powers to work properly, this is initially tough.

Added DiffLines:

** "Top Bolt" implies that a pegasus pony's flight skill is at least partially tied to his or her confidence, which is borne out by other episodes - for example, [[ShrinkingViolet Fluttershy]] is a poor flier, while [[AwesomeEgo Rainbow]] [[LargeHam Dash]] is the fastest pegasus alive.

** More generally, when he gets angry the air tends to heat up around him and his powers pack significantly more of a wallop when he's angry.

** More generally, when he gets angry the air tends to heat up around him and his powers pack significantly more of a wallop when he's angry. As of the sequel, if he gets ''really'' angry, a smell of wood-smoke begin to develop. This is generally an excellent time to start running.

Did you ever notice how many supernatural abilities, superpowers, or forms of MagicByAnyOtherName are controlled by emotion? Kind of a part of MagicVersusTechnology where Magic is emotional, and Technology is rational.
