* As an Alien trope, you know there is a ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' example: the Anodites. It's discovered that [[spoiler:Gwen herself]] is half Anodite in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' [[spoiler:and was offered a choice by her grandmother to destroy her corporeal body to become an energy being like her]].
** ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' has a radioactive Energy Being in P'andor. But considering he apparently has DNA to scan (where Anodites don't), it's called into question whether he's ''really'' "PureEnergy" or not.
** [[EldritchAbomination Diagon]] may look like a Cthulhu-expy, but he's actually an Energy Being. [[spoiler:Vilgax defeats (possibly even ''kills'') him by tricking him into attacking an energy draining machine.]]

* As an Alien trope, you know there is a ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' example: the Anodites. They are alien beings made of {{Mana}} and able to manipulate it for a variety of purposes, including taking a physical form. It's discovered that [[spoiler:Gwen herself]] is half [[spoiler:Ben and Gwen]] are quarter Anodite in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' [[spoiler:and was offered a choice by her ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce''. [[spoiler:Specfically from Verdona Tennyson, their grandmother and Max's wife. She also offered (or rather insisted) on trying to destroy get Gwen to do the same when first met, but eventually backed off. Gwen's Anodite lineage also explains why she is a naturally talented magic user. However, it does make it harder for her corporeal body to become an energy being like her]].

not. However, when produced in the Omnitrix (to make NRG), it also reconsturcts the containment suit that P'andor was in (though for P'andor, it's cause he was a criminal) which helps them control their powers and presumably not affect their environmeny.
** [[EldritchAbomination Diagon]] may look like a Cthulhu-expy, but he's actually is this as part of his vibe of being an Energy Being. EldritchAbomination. In his own words, his essence is power. [[spoiler:Vilgax defeats (possibly even ''kills'') ''defeats'' him by tricking him into attacking exploiting this and using an energy draining machine.machine, the same one Vilgax use to take the powers of ten former champions seen earlier. Since Diagon is power, Diagon is absorbed by Vilgax and he becomes a being himself until Ben uses Ascalson to seal the power in it. With Azmuth destorying the sword, it's safe to say Diagon is not coming back.]]



** Of course, it needs to make sense even less than anything else in ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' needs to make sense, since they're [[spoiler:a simulation created by Zim's LotusEaterMachine.]]

However, other episodes confirm the Meekrob were real and notes from WordOfGod do note that Dib would've allied with them for real to fight against the Irkens, especially in the would-be finale, Invader Dib.]]

* [[WillOTheWisp The wisps]] in the ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' series are composed of energy and spend their existence gathering knowledge across the various planes of reality. In ''VideoGame/UltimaUnderworld'', one can give you a truly devastating spell, [[spoiler:Armageddon, which destroys absolutely everything in the game. Including doors and stairways, so that you cannot escape the room.]]

* The Angels from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', despite their typically rather imposing physical presence are said to have both "waveform" & particle properties, not unlike light. [[ItRunsOnNonsensoleum This despite the fact that, genetically, they're supposedly closer to humans than chimps are]]. Metaphysically, some are essentially....literally, Beings made of Light or...other abstract concepts that the Human Mind cannot mathematically comprehend.

* The Archons and Dark Archons from ''{{Starcraft}}''. Affectionately called blue and red balloons respectively by some players, they are made up of [[AppliedPhlebotinum psionic energy]] and are created when two high or dark templar, [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal powerful psychic protoss]], merge together. As they lack substance, they're tragically fragile without their energy shields, meaning they may be less useful than the sum of their parts if you're facing an enemy that can deplete shields. Generic archons are made from two high templar, two dark templar make a dark archon, and, in ''Starcraft 2'', two of either templar can come together to make a [[strike:Twilight Archon]] regular archon. Interestingly, at least one dark templar, Ulrezaj, knows of a way to become an especially potent dark archon consisting of multiple templar. The result was probably one of the most powerful beings in the Starcraft universe.

Never mind that being [[PureEnergy "made of energy"]] makes as much sense as being "made of weight." This shows that many still don't know what the word "energy" [[YouKeepUsingThatWord really means]].
