* In ''BatmanAndRobin'' Poison Ivy's plants respond to her emotions and desires. When Robin was lured to her lair so she could seduce him the plants helped set the romantic mood by slowly closing behind him as he journeyed deeper into the lair and when he finally reached the center several leaves moved out of the way and a giant rose bloomed revealing Ivy, like curtains closing and opening. After Ivy became angered after discovering that Robin had tricked her though, she shoves him into the pond and her plants immediately turn on him, trying to drown him.

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', emotions can be a serious source of fuel for magical ability. In ''Literature/WhiteNight'' in particular, Harry saves himself and another character by having the other character kiss him and supercharge his spells with lust. In ''Blood Rites'', Murphy asks Harry why he just doesn't do the "pocket full of sunshine" trick on the Red Court vamps. Harry states that it turns out you have to be genuinely happy to make the spell work.

* ''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.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Harry as a particular example, largely because he's psychic - due to his tendency to bottle up his emotions until he masters his powers, he tends to have a fairly epic case of PowerIncontinence whenever he loses control of said emotions. The results of this can vary from giving a fellow psychic a nasty PsychicNoseBleed and/or causing every object in a room to start floating, to accidentally trapping himself in a memory of a vicious superpowered pitched battle where YourMindMakesItReal. It is the latter instance that convinces him that he has to learn how to control his powers, because if he doesn't, he ''will'' end up doing someone permanent damage.
** 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.

* 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).

* 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

* 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.
