** Blacksmith, another enemy of Wally West's, has the ability to bond flesh with metal, the result of a modified version of a serum whose formula she stole from her ex-husband Goldface (an old enemy of Green Lantern's who later reformed); her most noteworthy use of this power is when she turns her skin into an ebony-metal compound. Before that, she used this ability to kill Rainbow Raider by [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice shoving one of his own paintings through his chest]].

* Metalcrafting is but one of the ElementalPowers available to furycrafters in JimButcher's ''Literature/CodexAlera.'' Metalcrafters tend to be the greatest swordsmen, since some of the metalcrafter skills include the ability to sense metal around you and act on that, as well as the ability to greatly increase your own endurance and pain tolerance (a famous duel between two metalcrafters lasted ''days''). One character also becomes a ChromeChampion in the fifth book and another character does the same in the sixth. Metalcrafting also allows one to control their own emotions and shield them from having their emotions detected by [[TheEmpath watercrafters]]. Lastly, metalcrafting includes some degree of kinetic control over metal, but since only two very powerful crafters have been seen using it (Gaius Sextus and Invidia Aquitaine) it's probably a difficult technique.

Some ElementalPowers let you control [[PlayingWithFire fire]], [[MakingASplash water]], [[BlowYouAway air]] or [[DishingOutDirt earth]]. Some even let you control [[ShockAndAwe lightning]]; [[AnIcePerson ice]]; [[GreenThumb plants]]; {{light|EmUp}}; {{dark|IsEdgy}}ness; [[PureEnergy arcane forces]], {{magic|AIsMagicA}}, or [[MindOverMatter the]] [[PsychicPowers mind]]; and even [[HeartBeatDown heart.]] (That is when not a victim of WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway) This, however, is power over '''metal.''' (Not [[ThePowerOfRock that kind of metal]]; the shiny stuff.) It generally allows one to control metal, although it may even include being made of metal and using one's body to attack.
