* 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

* 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.

* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'': The Charmed Ones all have powers that are linked to their emotions. Prue accidentally pushes everything off the shelves in a supermarket when she gets angry with Phoebe in the pilot. Piper first freezes something when she panics because she has run out of time while being tested in an interview to be a chef.

* Crash [=McLarson=] from ''TheAquabatsSuperShow'' can sometimes [[SizeShifter grow huge]] when his emotions are riled up.

* Though it hasnít been outright confirmed yet, Steven from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' seems to activate his powers this way. His mom (from whom he inherited his powers) was a full on AllLovingHero, and the first time he activated them was when his family bought him the last of a recently discontinued brand of ice cream he had a deep emotional connection towards (which briefly made him think his power was activated by ice cream). Every time since then his power has activated when helping someone he cares about and wished to protect, most notably [[MuggleBestFriend Connie]].

* ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'': Ambient magic is tied to the user's emotions. Niko starts training Tris before the other students, telling her that when she gets mad, bad things happen. He's not wrong.

** ''X-Men United'': discussed by Jean and Scott. She essentially dismisses it as stress; he says her nightmares make the whole bedroom shake. Storm has a similar moment in the next film when her becoming upset leads to a very cloudy sky.



*** Raven Darkholme's mental state influences the effectiveness of her mutant ability.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Orihime's power to [[RealityWarper reject fate]] is directly tied to her emotions. Unfortunately, being an ActualPacifist limits her combat abilities since her one offensive skill runs on killing intent.

* In ''PaperinikNewAdventures'', there's Xadhoom: According to what she says, if she ever loses control of her powers, she would ''GO NOVA'', and [[FromBadToWorse then she would become a black hole and swallow the entire solar system she's occupying]].

---> "[...] Charles as I've had the opportunity to play him, is a voyeur. So he's a genius, and he's got this ability to read people's minds. But his real power is a very human thing. His real gift is empathy. He can empathize with people's problems and he can help them. But as a young man, I think, certainly the way I tried to play him, is that he was much more kind of like a posh guy fascinated with the working class guy. [...] And then what happens in this movie and the end of [''First Class''], you give him his angst, you give him his thing that makes him just like everyone else. And therefore he can't be a voyeur inside people's minds anymore. He's a passenger on the same train. And the train is going to hell."
