* Virgo Shaka of ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' lives In a setting full of {{Charles Atlas Superpower}}s but thanks to his Enlightenment Superpowers is one of the most feared, dangerous adversaries imaginable. He can create deadly illusions that will MindRape enemies from ''miles'' away, send them to {{Hell}} (or {{Heaven}}!), destroy their senses rendering them [[ConvenientComa comatose]], and even [[ThanatosGambit be more dangerous dead than alive]]. It helps that he's the reincarnation of a Buddha.

* Inverted in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' by Thoros of Myr. He is a red priest, was raised in the temple of the Lord of Light. He was a DirtyOldMonk who never believed, and viewed his asignment to cinvert Robert Baratheon as a way to escape the temple. However, when his friend Beric Dondarrion was killed while they were trying to apprehend Gregor Clegane, Thoros prayed over his body and Beric rose from the dead. Thoros' suddenly manifested magical powers resulted in him undergoing a spiritual awakening, and by Season 6 he had sucessfully converted the entire Brotherhood Without Banners and convinced them to march on The Wall to fight the White Walkers, beliving them to be servants of the Great Other.

* A good half of ComicBook/{{Kaliman}}'s powers came from his intense mental and spiritual training in the orient. The other half? Sheer {{Badass}}itude.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', when in the TV World, the characters are confronted by their shadow selves. These are the manifestations of all their unwanted, hidden emotions. When rejected, the shadows will go OneWingedAngel and try to kill them. Only by facing themselves and accepting their flaws will their shadow transform into a Persona. Working to overcome their flaws and improve themselves allows the Persona to evolve into a more powerful form.

* Although it is clear that genetics plays a deciding factor in developing PsychicPowers in ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' it also seems that without a good deal of spiritual introspection they won't develop very far. One Martian faith, the Society of Eternal Bliss, even places psychics at the top of the reincarnation ladder and treats them as gods simply to give them the time to meditate and develop their abilities.
