* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', strong emotions can actually increase the power of spells being casted, which can account for some of the StrongAsTheyNeedToBe moments the cast (particularly Twilight) have. [[DarkMagicalGirl Starlight Glimmer]], the BigBad of Season 5, pretty much admits that part of the reason her magical abilities are so strong is that she channels her emotions into them (and she had ''lots'' of [[ThePowerOfHate feelings of hate and revenge]] to tap into when she was a bad guy).

* ''FanFic/{{Bird]]'' features this as a major theme. There are several parahumans that have an emotional element, Elle might be the best example, activly shapeing her imaginary worlds using her emotions as a blueprint. On the other end of the spectrum, Mimi's powers directly alter her brain chemistry, encouraging reckless behavior and inducing a state that is not unlike Sociopathy or Psychopathy.

* Creator/DCComics has a whole slew of "Lanterns" from the modern GreenLantern mythology whose powers, via the entities from the [[ColorCodedEmotions Emotional Electromagentic Spectrum]], are based on their ability to feel and channel certain emotions; the two most notable in the context of this trope however are arguably the Star Sapphires (who apparently need to [[ThePowerOfLove feel love]] to even have, let alone use their powers) and the Red Lantern Corps, whose powers are likewise fueled by UnstoppableRage and who are [[StartOfDarkness recruited]] and given [[PowerBornOfMadness superpowers]] by their [[GreenLanternRing Power Rings]] in the first place only ''after'' they've hit an irrevocable RageBreakingPoint

Added DiffLines:

* Shigeo Kageyama from ''Manga/MobPsycho100'' tries to keep his emotions firmly under lock and key due to the fact that feeling strong emotions can amplify his powers, something he has a decent reason to fear. However, this isn't always easy, and when put under enough emotional stress (represented as a percentage of how close he is to one of these psychic events), he enters "100%" mode and his powers and personality become amplified and altered by whichever emotion he's feeling most strongly at the time.

* Willow from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' is a partial example. Though her magic isn't explicitly stated as being emotional, an arc in season 6 has her going out of control after her lover Tara is killed. Willow is also offered a job as a Vengeance Demon in season 4 because her despair impresses D'Hoffryn.
** And after he leaves for a while, [[spoiler:Oz]] reappears and he can't stay in control/human when he's emotionally unstable.
