* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia,'' Momo Yaoyorozu has the power to generate physical objects from her body, as long as she knows their atomic structure. Fortunately, she's a genius, and thus has been shown creating a number of different items.

* Elle in ''FanFic/{{Bird}}'' can create worlds and force reality to conform to their shape. From glittering caves to derelict concrete bunkers filled with barbed wire and rust. They reflect, at least in part, her mental state and lend her power a FisherKing aspect. She only has limited control of them, however, and the dangers presented by them dominate an entire arc of the story.

** A straighter example is Mr. 3, whose wax-molding powers function very much like a poor man's Green Lantern Ring. He can't do much against [[KillItWithFire fire]] (or high temperatures in general), but otherwise he can build himself a HumongousMecha battlesuit in ''seconds''.

* In ''LightNovel/UnlimitedFafnir'', Ds have the power to create dark matter and transmute it into almost anything, within limits. They can only generate a limited quantity of dark matter at a time, and organic tissue is considered to be impossible to transmute due to its complexity. [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Vritra]] has the same power but is far more skilled with it. She can create living organisms, and (in the past) had enough dark matter to [[spoiler:recreate the entire planet when it was destroyed.]]

* Parodied in ''Manga/OnePiece'': Kanjuro has the ability [[ArtInitiatesLife to turn anything he draws real]]. The problem is that he's a TerribleArtist, rendering anything he creates barely functional (or completely non-functional if drawn badly enough). If he creates a creature, it always appears to be in pain and is happy only when it's destroyed or reverts back to a drawing.

* Invisible Woman of the ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' has this ability, given to her after her original ability turned out to be so useless that writers had to give her a reason to even EXIST. If you're a spy, a thief or an assassin, or just a phenomenally skill martial artist, being able to turn invisible at will would be quite useful by itself. But Sue is none of those things, and an otherwise ordinary human who can turn invisible isn't much help against enemies with superhuman strength. They pulled that off pretty well, considering that she is now the strongest member of the team. Basically, she's become an Invisible Lantern over the years, being able to shape her invisible forcefields into any sort of constructs she wants but with the added advantage that [[CaptainObvious her enemies can't see them]].

** In early stories, the Human Torch's flame could often come off as this. One of this solo yarns in ''Strange Tales'' had him building a ''catapult'' out of pure flame to get rid of a bomb.

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'': Spiral Energy is essentially this. It's the force of willpower manifested into reality, allowing one to "do the impossible." While first seen to apply (temporary) repairs to Gurren Lagann's leg early on, it also allows one to create matter, break physics and just overpower anything through sheer will. By the end of the series, Simon is able to harness it to do practically anything. Though namely in the[[GonnaNeedMoreX making of]] [[ThisIsADrill larger drills]] while powering the insanely huge mechs. Perhaps as a nod to its spiritual predecessor, Getter Robo, it usually manifests itself as green (with the exception of Lord Genome; who's is a rather sinister red, [[spoiler: though this is due to the fact he is using spiral energy against itself, working for suppressive and repressive means, since his was green back when he was a young man.]]
