** Tiberium makes an appearance in the Sims 3 as an easteregg, it's attributes are that it can cut itself into a unique shape from it's raw form (all other gem types in this game must be cut by the player), it's ridiculously valuable and makes a Sim ill when carrying it. Rumours of Tiberium being able to spread itself if left on the ground as in it's parent games are untrue though.

** The show eventually introduced two other variants: Red Energon, which is capable of giving a Cybertronian super speed on the level of the Flash, and Tox-En, a version of the stuff developed by the Decepticons as a biological weapon. A synthetic version of energon was also introduced, apparently having once been used by ancient Cybertronians and the formula lost for eons. Ratchet creates two versions; one that acts like a steroid (complete with having alterations on the user's psyche) and the finished product once used by the Ancients, which proves to be a viable alternative fuel source for Cybertron and is used to help with revitalizing Cybertron itself by being fed right into the heart of Primus, the God of the Transformers.

* Magic is treated this way in ''Literature/{{Discworld}}''. Its capabilities are broad and ambiguous, and distinctions are drawn on the ''use'' of magic rather than different ''types''. However, magic has narrative properties similar to radiation (because Creator/TerryPratchett used to work in nuclear power), with sites of old wizard battles essentially being uninhabitable fallout zones that mutate living things. It's also subject to some physical laws and nothing can be truly created with it (for example, Conservation of Mass applies when turning someone into a frog, and a cheese made by magic falls apart into a disgusting inedible mess). The most important reason for witches and wizards to learn magic is frequently said to be how to ''not'' use it when they could do it for every little thing.

Sam Vimes once complains about the fact that "you can't explain how the magic is done [[ShapedLikeItself because it's all done by magic]]."

* Septium (a fragment of this is called sepith) in ''VideoGame/KisekiSeries'' are gems which come in seven different energies representing four basic and three higher-tier existing elements in the series' universe; Fire (Red, called Carnelia), Water (Blue, called Sapphirl), Wind (Green, called Esmelas), Earth (Brown, called Amberl), Space (Gold, called Goldia), Mirage (Silver, called Argem), and Time (Black, called Nohval). Its purified form of sepith, quartz, is utilized in a mechanical device known as orbment in almost every technological aspect ranging from military to simple home cooking. In gameplay, each characters have tactical orbment with slots that can be filled with various types of quartz to grant them ability to use [[MagicFromTechnology arts]], alter their combat parameters or even their cooking proficiency in later games.

* ''{{TabletopGame/Deadlands}}'' has Ghost Rock, the Miracle Fuel [[spoiler:made from the souls of the damned]]. Ghost Rock burns 100 times hotter and 100 times longer than coal, can act as a catalyst in a wide array of chemical reactions, can be used in place of coke to made superhard steel, and basically anything else you can imagine.

** ComicBook/PostCrisis, however, Kryptonite from one universe cannot affect a Kryptonian from a different universe due to a difference in radiation emissions, as Superman from the mainstream DC Universe found out when he was exposed to the isotopes of Kryptonite from the Pocket Universe and nothing happened to him -- a fact that he put to good use in ''ComicBook/TheSupergirlSaga'' when he used that world's Gold and Green Kryptonite (the remaining hidden samples stored away in Superboy's lab) on the Phantom Zone criminals.

* ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' features a system of six GreenRocks of which only one is green; the others are red, yellow, blue, purple, and silver. These rocks are energized meteorites that fall from the moons and are used as a {{Magitek}}-ish power source for practically every vaguely mechanical item in the game, including prototype airship [[WaveMotionGun cannons]], vehicle engines, torches, stoves, and liquor distillers (silver makes the good stuff). Said rocks also allow their owners to cast magic spells, or physically attack with [[ElementalRockPaperScissors elemental power]] by slotting a rock into their weapon.
