A Fighting Spirit is when a person's ki/mana/spirit/psychic power is manifested in a physical form that acts on its own. They don't need to lift a finger to punch you; their ki will do it for them. This usually resembles SummonMagic, except that it's an extension of the user rather than a separate entity. This can sometimes manifest as an AnimalBattleAura. See also GuardianEntity, AstralProjection and ShapingYourAttacks.

* Zombie Jason's second Unleashed move in ''VideoGame/TerrordomeTheGameRiseOfTheBoogeymen'' has him sending the blue-tinted spirit of his former child self to slash his opponents with a knife.

* In ''MagicTheGathering'' this is a favored tactic of the planeswalker Ajani, who has several cards involving him making avatars from his or other people's emotions. The most direct is [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Discussion.aspx?multiverseid=174951 Soul's Fire]].

* Arguably, ''GGundam''[='s=] Sekiha Tenkyoken, a KamehameHadoken that takes the form of a gigantic energy fist. Near the end of the series, Domon even uses this to perform a gigantic version of his Bakunetsu God Finger attack that grabs the opponent's entire body and not just their head.

Grouping the Jo Jo-influenced entries together, as that's practically a subgenre.
* Raoh from ''HokutoNoKen'', could use his ''[[BattleAura Touki]]'' to attack an opponent without so much as flexing a single finger.

* "[[RunningGag Inner Sakura]]" is often depicted as this in some ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''-themed videogames. Naruto's [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Fox Cloak]] can function as this, forming arms of chakra to attack independently of Naruto's movements and at its most powerful forming a gigantic AnimalBattleAura he controls from within. The Susanoo technique of the [[MagicalEye Sharingan]] similarly creates a massive EnergyBeing around the user, its form evolving from a [[DemBones skeletal]] form into a [[WarriorMonk yamabushi]] and then finally a {{Samurai}} as it increases in power. * ''Manga/OnePiece'' ** There's Haki, which can cause hundreds of people to pass out at the same time, enhance one's Attacks/Defense, [[spoiler: Luckily our clueless Hero has an especially powerful Haki named the "King's Disposition". As of Chapter 589, he is on an Island were he can train this Ability. Cue possible TrainingMontage]]. ** Also, Zoro's ''Kyutoryu Asura'', seeing as its described as an extension of his spirit. Although its unknown whether its related to Haki or not.

** Special mention goes to Zetsuei, a humanoid Alter whose injuries reflect on its user, Ryuho. * "[[RunningGag Inner Sakura]]" This is often depicted how spirits are materialized via Oversoul in ''ShamanKing'', in many ways similar to Stands. * The Appetite Demons in ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' are hulking, humanoid monsters that become more corporeal as their users' Gourmet Cells grow stronger. * ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'''s transforming [[EmpathicWeapon Zanpakuto]] are extensions of the wielder' souls. Most simply become other melee weapons but a few are more dramatic. Hitsugaya's forms parts of an [[AnIcePerson ice dragon]] around him while Komamura's creates a giant, armored warrior to mirror his movements. The latter also shares its battle damage with Komamura in ''[=JoJo=]'' tradition. * In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion'' [[spoiler:Sayaka can now summon Oktavia, her own Witch form, to fight alongside her.]] * ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' has symbiotic [[GuardianEntity angels]] attached to each goddess. Since they mainly materialize to make casting spells look cooler, they're essentially this in some ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''-themed videogames. Naruto's [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Fox Cloak]] can function as this, forming arms of chakra trope whenever conflict breaks out. * Raoh from ''HokutoNoKen'', could use his ''[[BattleAura Touki]]'' to attack independently of Naruto's movements and at its most powerful forming a gigantic AnimalBattleAura he controls from within. The Susanoo technique of the [[MagicalEye Sharingan]] similarly creates a massive EnergyBeing around the user, its form evolving from a [[DemBones skeletal]] form into a [[WarriorMonk yamabushi]] and then finally a {{Samurai}} an opponent without so much as it increases in power. flexing a single finger. * ''Manga/OnePiece'' ** There's Haki, which can cause hundreds of people to pass out at the same time, enhance one's Attacks/Defense, [[spoiler: Luckily our clueless Hero has an especially powerful Haki named the "King's Disposition".
