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.

* MilestoneComics' ''ComicBook/{{Static}}'' has basically the same powerset as Magneto, except visually based more on the [[ShockAndAwe electricity]] side of electromagnetism. He still largely uses it to move metal objects around, though.

Added DiffLines:

* Metalwitches in ''Literature/TheWitchlands'' can control metal in their vicinity, reshaping it as if it was liquid. As their power comes from the Earth Well, more powerful Earthwitches also have this ability.

* '''All''' magic in the ''{{Mistborn}}'' series involves metal in some way, but the closest examples to this trope are the two [[{{Whatevermancy}} Allomantic]] powers gained from iron and steel, which allow the user to attract (iron) or repel (steel) nearby pieces of metal. This power is not based on magnetism, and affects all metals except aluminum, which is allomantically neutral. There are three general types of metal-based magic:

* In ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'', the title character, whose main power is ShockAndAwe, at one time manipulates iron sand into ''[[WhipItGood whips]]''. And uses it to stick to walls... and to disarm people with guns... and to instantly form shields in front of herself... And of course the titular Railgun. Seems like this is closer to her main power, in the way she actually uses it. Or rather, the series [[LightningCanDoAnything make no distinction and her power is simply Electromagnetism]].

* ''Fanfic/ACertainUnknownLevel0'': The Metal Twist power, which can reshape metals. And Electromasters, like Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun's Misaka Mikoto, can have electromagnetic control, to manipulate magnetic metals.



* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' has the Steel-type. Mons with this typing tend to be either powerful defenders (like Skarmory), potent tanks (like Metagross and in the lower tiers Aggron), or [[LightningBruiser Lightning Bruisers]] (like Scizor, Lucario and Excadrill). Part of this is due to having the largest spread of elemental resistances in the game at 10 (formerly 11) and an immunity to Poison and Toxic statuses. It would be a good candidate for InfinityPlusOneElement itself, except that the few weaknesses it has - Ground and Fighting in particular - are very commonly found in the game and are downright ''ubiquitous'' on competitive teams. While Ground and Fighting are powerful attacking types on their own, it's safe to say a lot of their value comes from their ability to hit Steel-types hard. Most dual-typings with Steel tend to negate one or more of those weaknesses though. Moves of this type usually revolve around turning part of the Pokémon's body to metal and using it to attack (Steel Wing, Metal Claw, Iron Tail, etc).
