Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/EndlessSpace'' and ''VideoGame/EndlessLegend'' all civilizations rely on Dust(except for the Harmony). It is used for almost anything, build structures and ships, form computer networks, and its even the main currency for everything.

* In weaving together ''Space Fortress Macross'', ''Southern Cross'', and ''Genesis Climber MOSPEADA'' into one long story arc, ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'', Harmony Gold introduced "Protoculture" which was a mysterious energy source that allowed the creation of transformable mecha, and is also (at least in the Mospeada part of the story) the fuel used to power them, while in the first part, the humans barely seem to understand what it is.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life|1}}'', green (actually gold) rocks and the mishandling of said rocks caused the resonance cascade, which allowed the creatures from Xen to come a-swarming in and nearly end humanity as we know it. The Nihilanth kept three of these crystals in its chamber to heal itself.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}} : Episode 2'' it turns out that [[spoiler:''someone'' arranged for the rock to be placed into the machine for exactly that purpose, and that the computer problems on the same day were most likely to cover up that the machine had been tampered with. It is confirmed that the G-Man procured the crystal which blew up in the test chamber but for who's request is unknown (seeing that he presents himself as a freelance contractor, probably the Combine hired him)]]. They also power that nifty Gravity Gun.

* The Chemical X in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' also did weird and arbitrary things sometimes. Like turning a bowl of toys and sugar and a monkey into three {{Magical Girl}}s and an evil genius. Disturbingly enough, [[{{Squick}} the contents of Mojo Jojo's toilet]] is apparently a decent substitute for Chemical X since that's what's used to create the [[ThePsychoRangers Rowdyruff Boys]].

** In fact, that's part of the stated goal of it: StanLee intended to create a MetaOrigin that many heroes could be spun out of. Of course, that's not the way it went, with the FantasticRacism angle as well as the MadScientist and government types wanting to exploit mutants: due to the way the world treats them, what it means to be a mutant and what it means to have powers from ''any'' other source are so different that you don't really get many non-''X-Men''-related characters having "I woke up one morning with superpowers" as an origin.

** There's also Gold Kryptonite (which can [[DePower take away all of a Kryptonian's superpowers]] ''[[DePower forever]]''), Blue Kryptonite (which is SelfDemonstrating/{{Bizarro}} Kryptonite), and White Kryptonite (which only hurts plants), to name just the most common varieties.

* Hydrogen is useful, so is oxygen. What happens if we combine the two? We get plain old water. It is used to support every living being on this planet, its three states all have uses, steam to turn turbines, liquid water for everything, and ice [[ArsonMurderAndJayWalking for keeping lemonade cold for the hot summer days]], it can clean off dirt and debris, make mud for the amusement of kids, cool the engine blocks of vehicles, make rainbows, and under enough pressure, can cut through steel. If thrown with enough force, it can also turn transparent the thin garments of [[{{Fanservice}} busty ladies]].

* ScarletWitch's mutant power over probability is another example, letting her do anything the writers need, like making all the bullets in a gun defective. Some WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief is needed, since she's been known to use her powers to do things physically impossible no matter how much luck you have, like make gravity stop affecting her. Later {{retcon}}ning revealed that her powers were combined with actual magic to far exceed what should have been possible. Yet later there were again retconned as the power to play merry havoc with the very fabric of reality as she pleased. Wanda's powers were also affected by her having been born on Mount Wundagore, a mountain where a Chthon, an EldritchAbomination, was imprisoned.

* Lacrima Crystals in ''Manga/FairyTail'' tend to have whatever power is convenient at the time. Lightening Storms, engines, [[spoiler:dragon slayer magic.]]

to:

* Lacrima Crystals in ''Manga/FairyTail'' tend to have whatever power is convenient at the time. Lightening Storms, engines, [[spoiler:dragon slayer magic.]] Justified in that Lacrima Crystals are just vessels. The magic placed inside them causes the effects desired by their creator, e.g. [[spoiler:Laxus had to make hundreds of lightening lacrima in order to create the thunder palace, but if he wants them to do anything other than zap people he'd have to make new crystals using a different type of magic.]]
