** Doomsday was once defeated by a species whose royal family sacrificed themselves to become a being of pure energy which Doomsday was entirely defenseless against. Unfortunately, they didn't destroy his body, and when it was recovered and woke up, Doomsday was now immune to energy attacks as well, as the former victors discovered to their horror.

** In ''ComicBook/SupermanDoomsdayHunterPrey'', Doomsday was once defeated by a species whose royal family sacrificed themselves to become a being of pure energy called the Radiant, which Doomsday was entirely defenseless against. Unfortunately, they didn't destroy his body, and when it was recovered and woke up, Doomsday was now immune to energy attacks as well, as the former victors discovered to their horror.

Even cheaper and simpler to pull off than RubberForeheadAliens, which explains why Energy Beings and HumanAliens so often dominate the demographics of TheFinalFrontier. The AngelicAliens and StarfishAliens especially may appear in this form.

* ''VideoGame/BluePlanet'': The Vishnans. The protagonist says they could be called Energy Beings, but to do so would be to miss the point. They do not have corporeal bodies as we know them. Instead they "possess" inanimate matter of their own creation to serve as an instrument of their will in the physical universe. The Shivans are similar, except that while the Vishnans exist outside of local time-space, the Shivans are innately part of local time-space. One character says that "The Shivans were not made. They were calculated." when discussing their origins.

* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' has something similar with the Data Entity, a non-physical being which created Yuki Nagato in order to be able to communicate with humans.

* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' has something similar with the Data Entity, a non-physical being which created Yuki Nagato in order to be able to communicate with humans. It's really made of ''information'' rather than energy.



* The [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann]] from ''[[TheMovie Lagann-hen]]''. It's only physical parts are the Kamina-esque shades.
** The [[BigBad Anti]]-[[ScaryDogmaticAliens Spiral]] is also this, being [[HiveMind the gestalt mind]] of a hibernating species of [[WellIntentionedExtremist Well-Intentioned Extremists]].

* The spirit forms of the Clow Cards in ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'', though they usually take the form of humanoids (often, though not always, beautiful women) or animals.
** Of special mention is the Illusion Card.

* ''VideoGame/AtlasReactor'' have three examples of beings made of not-entirely-meat: Aurora is a human who was disintegrated and learned to mimic the Reactor's powers of ResurrectiveImmortality. Orion was a human who performed an experiment on himself that infused his body with Reactor energy. Finally, Quark seems to be the Reactor's 'offspring' and doesn't resemble any kind of biological life. The degree to which these characters are still human also seems to be proportional to their relative sanity: Aurora is a megalomaniac, Orion is [[AGodAmI convinced he's a god]], and [[CloudCuckooLander Quark's mentality and moral code doesn't resemble that of a human in the slightest]].

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** The Ideal Masters are immortal beings who [[WasOnceAMan were once powerful mortal sorcerers]] during
the Merethic Era. After finding their mortal forms to be too weak and limiting, they entered Oblivion as beings of pure energy and settled an area of "chaotic creatia", forming the [[SpiritWorld Soul Cairn]]. The Ideal Masters are most infamous for their [[YourSoulIsMine trafficking in souls]], especially "Black" sapient souls. All souls trapped in soul gems end up in the Soul Cairn and are considered property of the Ideal Masters. The Ideal Masters do not usually manifest within the Soul Cairn, but have been known to take the form of giant soul gems through which individuals can communicate with them, and through which they can drain the souls of approaching mortals.

* Io in ''DotA2'' is the very essence of the fundamental forces that hold the world together. In a more meta example, Io's in-game model is purely made of particle effects.
