* In ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'', Indy shows the two government guys a picture of the Ark being used to crush Israel's enemies in battle. Later in the movie, the Germans and Belloq get a taste of it.
-->'''Major Eaton:''' Good God!\\
'''Brody:''' Yes, that's just what the Hebrews thought.\\
'''Colonel Musgrove:''' [pointing to a beam of light] Uh, now what's that supposed to be coming out of there?\\
'''Indiana:''' Lightning. Fire. Power of God or something.\\
'''Major Eaton:''' I'm beginning to understand Hitler's interest in this.\\
'''Brody:''' Oh, yes. The Bible speaks of the Ark leveling mountains and laying waste to entire regions. An army which carries the Ark before it... is invincible.

* In Creator/RobertEHoward's ConanTheBarbarian story "Literature/ThePhoenixOnTheSword", the mark of the phoenix is put on Conan's sword by Epimetrius, which lets Conan slay the demon that Thoth-Amon summoned as revenge against Ascalante, even after the sword is broken during the battle with Ascalante and his assassins. The phoenix mark is identified by the high priest of Mitra.

* Anyone playing a Guardian in ''GuildWars2'' will end up relying heavily on skills of this type. While there is no "holy" type damage in the game, a lot of their skills heal allies while simultaneously damaging enemies, and sometimes even setting them on fire. A Guardian's user interface will even periodically burn with blue flames to indicate that their passive buff skills are in effect. Interestingly, even nearby allies will have THEIR skill bar ignited with blue flames when they receive a buff from the Guardian.

Compare HeartBeatDown (using love like this). ElementalPowers, FireIceLightning, ReviveKillsZombie, DepletedPhlebotinumShells, BoltOfDivineRetribution (for when {{God}}, in whatever form he takes, cuts out the middleman), and HolyIsNotSafe (where holiness is inherently dangerous even when not weaponized.)
