** 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.

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.

* ''Energy X'' serves this purpose in ''VideoGame/FreedomForce'' and its sequel. Not only does it give almost all the super-characters their powers - which are as varied as anything the X-gene ever provided - but it provides the power-ups that are sprinkled around each battlefield. It heals injuries, temporarily super-energises characters, provides permanent power boosts for characters and can give the team a bonus helping them to recruit more members. It comes in easy-to-carry canisters[[spoiler: , and is a sentient energy being with dark designs on the universe!]]

* ''VideoGame/MystIV'' has actual green rocks on the prison Age of Spire. This mineral allows rocks infused with it to hover in repulsion to the [[spoiler: sun-like core of the age]]. It also comes in crystals which store some kind of negative static electricity, and any grounding makes it discharge. Sirrus put this to use to power his machines and create [[spoiler: sonic explosives]].

* Phazon from the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' series was a poison, a weapon, and fuel, and interestingly, was the only thing that could hurt the Metroid Prime despite it also causing the metroid's transformation in the first place. In ''Corruption'' it turned out to be [[spoiler:the [[TheCorruption corrupting influence]] of a [[GeniusLoci living planet]] of the stuff seeking to [[YouWillBeAssimilated take over the universe]]]]. Whoa. Oh, and did we mention that it's sentient in all of its forms?

** Naquada is practically indestructible, is a room-temperature superconductor, enables forming stable wormholes, is a source of power second only to [[AbusingTheKardashevScaleForFunAndProfit zero point energy]], explodes with super-nuclear force on contact with potassium, increases the power of existing nuclear weapons, has an easily detectable energy pattern, etc.

* In ''VideoGame/SpacePiratesAndZombies,'' there exists a substance called "Rez," which can be easily transmuted into ''any'' other element.
* Similarly, ''Conflicks: Revolutions'' uses "Metamatter," a substance that can be turned into anything else (except for mayonnaise, for some reason), derived from chicken eggs.

** The Arkenpliers' powers are mostly currently unknown, as they have only recently been attuned to their wielder. The single power they have demonstrated is perfectly raising a seemingly unlimited number of croaked (dead) units for no upkeep, no decay, and (almost) perfect obedience. In this world setting, that's a GameBreaker.
*** The "almost" is because one decrypted character has definitely revolted against the 'pliers. A second appears to be in the process of doing so, but so far it's not clear whether this is an actual revolt (in the form of reversion to a previous loyalty) or a gambit of some type.
