** Yusuke is still the king of this. The fact that he's part-demon results in the unique condition that he can use ''both'' types of ki. During the fight for controlling the demon realm, when his enemy protected himself with a shield impenetrable to Yusuke's stronger youki, he responded by using both youki and reiki '''AT THE SAME TIME'''. Cue to reiki leaking through the shield and injuring his gloating opponent. He wasn't able to keep it up for long, though; apparently, reiki subverts youki when both are present, resulting in Yusuke transforming back from his Mazoku form into human form.

Though mixing youki and reiki temporarily creates an effect similar to Sensui's holy energy.
** Bui from the Dark Tournament, despite being a demon, has a unique type of energy referred to simply as "BattleAura" that's apparently distinct from regular youki.

* These types of attacks became one of the main staples of modern stick-figure fight animations when extreme martial art violence and extreme acrobatics would no longer cut it. Although never explain as such, these are most likely Ki Attacks due to the heavy Oriental influence that pervades the genre as a result of XiaoXiao 's influence.

* ''Literature/WayOfChoices'' is sometimes called "Chinese Dragonball Z" so it should surprise no one that this trope features heavily. What is unusual is ki, sometimes translated as Essence, doesn't all come from the self but is used to purify an energy called Starlight, collected from one's fated star, into even more ki.

* Present in ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'', though they don't manifest as the light shows seen in other anime series. Further, you have to be ridiculously badass to pull them off in the ''Champloo'' universe: Mugen was only able to fire one off, by chance, after a week of intense training and focus, while Jin can only beat another ki user by using a DangerousForbiddenTechnique/[[spoiler:TakingYouWithMe maneuver]].

Further, you have to be ridiculously badass to pull them off at all in the ''Champloo'' universe: Mugen was only able to fire one off, by chance, after a week of intense training and focus, while Jin can only beat another ki user by using a DangerousForbiddenTechnique/[[spoiler:TakingYouWithMe maneuver]].

Not to be confused with an attack that uses the [[Franchise/KingdomHearts Keyblade]], or an attack that uses that D'ni wristwatch from VideoGame/{{Uru}} Live as a weapon.

* A lot of the artes in the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' are of this nature, either as PureEnergy or ElementalPowers that are used to form projectiles and/or to augment direct strikes.

* Basically what Aura is in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}''. All living things generate an Aura, and for those who train to use it like the Huntsmen and Huntresses, it grants SuperSenses, SuperStrength, HealingFactor, and an invisible force field which protects the person's body from injury. A person only has so much Aura however and it is depleted through use of these powers; once depleted, the person is vulnerable.
