* 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 metalcrafter 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.

** Allomancy, which involves ingesting and "burning" metals to generate effects, ranging from the aforementioned pushing and pulling of metals to ehnacing physical abilities and senses to detecting or hiding other using allomancy. With certain rare metals like [[{{Unobtanium}} atium]], one can see into one's opponents' future. Allomancy is also [[spoiler: the power of [[BigGood the god Preservation]]]].

It involves [[spoiler: killing the "donor" with the spike to extract the attribute from them and then pounding it into the body of the "recipient. Doing both at the same time boosts the effect.]] Hemalurgy is also how [[spoiler: koloss, kandra, and Inquisitors]] are created. Hemalurgy is [[spoiler: the power of [[BigBad the god Ruin]]]].

** Weld, another hero, is [[ChromeChampion made of metal]], and [[AppendageAssimilation any metal he comes into contact with merges with his body]]. He also has {{Shapeshifting}}, which he usually uses for {{ShapeshifterWeapon}}s and to [[MundaneUtility smooth down the edges when he accidentally comes into contact with metal]]. His metal body has a further bonus: certain powers cannot work on the living and some can't work on inanimate objects, Weld is immune to both types.

*** So powerful is his full range of abilities, most adaptions of Magneto have to severely limit his powers down to the most basic form of metal manipulation, NotQuiteFlight and electromagnetic shields. Any more and it risks becoming a StoryBreakerPower.
* Colossus of the ''ComicBook/XMen'' has the ability to turn his entire body into a form of organic steel, enabling him to withstand nearly any attack. Apart from his vulnerability to magnetism (which causes serious problems whenever he's up against the above Magneto), he has a KryptoniteFactor in the form of the anti-metal vibranium.

** Polaris had the same powers, resulting in decades worth of wrangling about whether or not she was Magneto's daughter (she was introduced as such but the very same storyline revealed it to be a hoax, and it's been just as back-and-forth ever since). Current continuity says she is; we'll see if it sticks.

* The InverseLawOfComplexityToPower- "metal" is a very broad term, and all metals are very utilitarian, so even if what can be done with the metal is narrowly defined (shaping it, magnetizing it, moving it...), it's still capable of many things.

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 [[TheHeart 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.

MagnetismManipulation. Compare ChromeChampion (a character with metallic skin), which is a common application for this kind of power, although not necessarily always a result of it.

* K'thonya of ''{{Earthsong}}'' belongs to a race with the soulstone ability to manipulate metal. Essentially the only thing she ''can't'' do with it is turn one kind into another and create it out of thin air (though she can expand a relatively small piece of metal to many times its original size). Her species' hair has a high enough metal content to be subject to her power, and the use of this ability by other members of her race apparently inspired gorgon myths in Earth culture.
