* Various Ki based feats all have perfectly mundane explanations, much like a wizard's trick. Calling a feat Ki based is the same as choosing to believe the rabbit materialized out of thin air rather then check the hat for a secret compartment.

** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' reveals that gods have ki that is fundamentally different from that of mortals', and as such they cannot be sensed by the heroes. Goku and Vegeta begin to sense it when in their Super Saiyan God forms, and there are some hints that they're learning to sense it outside of those forms as time goes on.

* Akatsuki from ''LightNovel/AestheticaOfARogueHero'' is a ki adept surrounded by magic users and is arguably the strongest fighter in the setting.
* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' Hollows use concentrated bursts of spiritual energy in the form of Ceros. The size and shape depend largely on the user's rank with the Espada possessing the most powerful versions.
** Likewise, some Shinigami kido resemble this trope.
** As does Ichigo's Getsuga Tensho.
** Any elemental Zanpakuto would qualify seeing how it's all connected to reiatsu. Fullbring abilities and most Quincy powers qualify as well.
*** Not just Zanpakuto, but everything depends on spirit energy. Simply put, if you don't have spirit energy, you can be killed just by being in the general vicinity of a person with a lot of spirit energy, as displayed by [[spoiler: Aizen and Starrk/Lilynette during their flashback.]] And even if you ''do'' have it, somebody sufficiently far above you can ''still'' kill you just by being nearby, unless they actively suppress their own power. [[spoiler:Something Starrk/Lilynette apparently didn't know how to do before Aizen recruited them.]]
* ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' also has youki, the energy of the evil youma. Difference is, only those who were [[DeadlyUpgrade infused with youma blood]] (namely, the titular warriors) can use it, and using too much youki will turn you into a BigBad.



* The advanced techniques of Ranma, Ryoga and Herb in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''.
** Note that Saffron does not actually use Ki Attacks; rather, he shoots out ''[[PlayingWithFire raw flame]]''.
** Hinako Ninomiya literally has only two attacks and both of them are Ki Attacks. With the first, she [[EnergyAbsorption drains]] the BattleAura from a victim, usually rendering them too weak to fight. If facing more then one opponent, or they don't fall to her technique, she can unleash a KamehameHadoken that uses up all of the stolen ki energy. Both attacks trigger her {{Dual Age Mode|s}}, the draining aging her up and the other aging her down.
* The ninjas of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' use ki to do basically everything from energy attacks to walking on water. Although the author mistakenly referred to the energy as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chakra Chakra,]] which is something completely different. By the time he realized his mistake it was too late to do anything about it so the term Chakra is still being used.
** It should be noted that Taijutsu also uses chakra. Rock Lee´s special technique, the opening of the gates, allows his chakra to move freely, thus giving him his super strength and speed. The chakra use in Taijutsu may not be as flashy or esoteric as in Genjutsu or Ninjutsu, but it´s still there, nevertheless.

* Nakago from ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' throws ki blasts out on a regular basis. After a hefty power upgrade and provocation from Nakago, Tamahome fires one himself, managing to slap a third-degree burn onto Nakago's shoulder. Badass indeed.
* ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' introduces 'nen' after a while, which is an energy that comes from within each individual, and is basically chi. It is used to perform devastating attacks but also has many other, less combative, functions.
* Having different kinds
of energy for humans and youkai is seen in ''Manga/InuYasha''. Youki is found in all demons, while spiritual energy can only be used by humans that train to use it (miko, monks, etc.), and divine power only comes from special items (the sword Tenseiga which has the power to resurrect a dead person once by destroying the spirits that take their soul away and attack other underworld beings).
* There is a martial art used by the protagonists
in the form first two parts of Ceros. The size ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' (and a single character in Part 3) called "Hamon" or "the Ripple." It doesn't have any energy blasts, but can be channeled through organic/liquid materials to give them different properties or attack indirectly. Also has elements of ThePowerOfTheSun (since the sun is the source of life), being particularly harmful to vampires. Various other powers granted by the Ripple include curing poison, [[WalkOnWater walking on water]], resistance to the absorption abilities of the [[FoodChainOfEvil Pillar Men]], and shape depend largely on [[SwissArmySuperpower whatever creative uses the user's rank with the Espada possessing the most powerful versions.

* The same can be said of [[Creator/{{Capcom}} Capcom's]] ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Street Fighter]]'' franchise, while ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' and ''VideoGame/RivalSchools'' have all but faded into obscurity.
** As an easter egg, ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' has been known to perform ki attacks from Street Fighter. This seems to imply that X has ki, and therefore a soul. In the remake, Doctor Light even says he's able to use this attack since his DNA soul is nearly identical to a human's.
*** Not so non-canon, now; ''VideoGame/MegaManXCommandMission'' has a series of Reploids called the Ninetails clan, who have mastered a form of robotic chi manipulation, allowing them to power their attacks without the use of an external power source (like every other Reploid's weapons do). Because of this, they're considered extremely dangerous and are locked up in a high-security facility.
* In the [=GBA=] ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' series, the heroes are masters of "Psynergy", a type of magic/[[PsychicPowers psychic power]]. They encounter a martial arts school, and the head of the dojo comments on how their powers differ from Ki Attacks. "Psynergy comes from the mind, while Chi comes from the body." It's commented that Psynergy is genetic, while "anyone" can eventually learn to use Chi, though [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer nobody in the party learns.]] ''However'' there are ''Ki'' techniques (not Chi) from a different temple/dojo that Psynergy resembles/substitutes that the heroes can learn. It's not entirely clear whether Ki and Psynergy are the same or simply in the same "sphere."
** The second game states that everyone has the potential to become adepts, but it takes years of exposure to a source of alchemy, such as mount Aleph, the elemental rocks, being bludgeoned with a Psynergy stone, or [[spoiler:The unleashing of the sources of each element via the lighthouse becons]]. Also it's implied that Ki is just another name for one specific type of Psynergy (Force).
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' has the martial arts user Sabin, whose special ability is Ki Attacks in combat. The player activates them via ''StreetFighter'' style button commands. These run off his magic stat but do not take up [[{{Mana}} Magic Points]] and can be done indefinitely.
** Most notable is the Aura Beam/Cannon move, which blasts enemies with pure soul power (and does extra damage to undead enemies to boot) and Fire Dance, which summons fire spirits to burn every enemy on the battle field.
* ''VideoGame/KickBeat'' has this as the in-story reason for its equivalent of ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'''s star power mechanic, where activating it results in a temporary score multiplier boost.



* Franchise/{{Kirby}}'s "Fighter" ability gives him this, even a KamehameHadouken as a ShoutOut to ''Franchise/StreetFighter''. Most of them are only short-to-mid-range though.
* In the ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' universe, Elemental Magic is hard science, with ''ki'' representing the final frontier of the unknown.
* In ''VideoGame/LostSoulsMUD'', sufficiently enlightened Aisenshi gain access to the chi punch and chi kick maneuvers, unarmed attacks that do a combination of physical and energy-based damage, not to mention leaving a sparkly trail behind in the air.
* The Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Lucario basically uses this, it's called "Aura" in Pokemon 'verses. This may also be used to explain the Fighting-type Special move Focus Blast.
** Other Pokemon can use Aura Sphere, mostly legendaries but also Togekiss, Mienfoo's evolution line and Clawitzer.
* Some classes in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' and its sequel have Ki-style moves, especially the White Monk and the Master Monk (in the sequel). Air Render and Aura Blast are especially notable as they are ranged attacks for a melee class. And no, these don't cost mana.
* The Genesis ActionRPG ''Spellcaster'' stars a monk who has various ki moves, ranging from plain old attacks to lightning strikes.
* VideoGame/DungeonsAndDragonsOnline (DDO), an online multiplayer version of the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' tabletop game, depicts the Monk class as using ki, which can be used for spell-like abilities, mostly to aid a party or destroy/affect enemies. Unlike the Wizard and other spellcaster classes that use "spell points" (mana), the Monk's ki can be regenerated almost endlessly as they attack and strike an enemy. The downside of generating ki for the Monk class is that the generated ki dissipates quickly and cannot be conserved as easily from fight to fight, requiring the player to be an opportunist while having available ki points.
* These are the only ranged attacks available to Hong Meiling in ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Hisoutensoku''.

* 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.
* Allen Covenant of the OmegaUniverse runs across a clan of ninja with chi-powers in ''Covenant Annual #1''. Oddly enough and unknown to most characters in-universe, superpowers all come [[MetaOrigin from the same place]].



* As one of ''many'' references to ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', the fight scenes in the [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]] fanimation ''WebAnimation/NazoUnleashed'' use a lot of this.

* Present in ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'', though they don't manifest as the light shows seen in other anime series. Further, you have to be ridiculously bad ass 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]].

* The ninjas of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' use ki to do basically everything from form energy attacks to walk on water. Although the author mistakenly referred to the energy as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chakra Chakra,]] which is something completely different. By the time he realized his mistake it was too late to do anything about it so the term Chakra is still being used.

** Ki blasts in [=HnK=] are frequently seen by Kenshiro as "[[AwesomeButImpractical wasteful]]," since he does equal or more damage by simply striking his foes with less expenditure of energy on his part. Raoh seems simply badass enough to personally subvert this rule.
*** More like as psychological warfare: {{Mooks}} faced with them [[OhCrap will realize how outclassed they are]] and either beg for their life or run away to spread the legend of the guy who can punch you into annihilation from twenty meters away without even using his hands (and God help you if he's showing you his palm), and foes good enough to know what using ki entails tend to either surrender or [[TakingYouWithMe try and use suicidal attacks]] ([[NoSell that will invariably fail]]) after being swatted away in such a wasteful way.
** Ki attacks in the series seem divided in two tiers. Basic ones, like Raoh's ki punch and the more widespread KamehameHadoken-style attacks, consist in hitting someone with ki, as the only advantage they have is a superior range that a skilled opponent can just power through them (as Rei tried to do in his failed HeroicSacrifice and Kenshiro did immediately after). Then there are the high school ones, that either do more damage than just punching someone (most of Gento's attacks) or do something special to [[CrazyPrepared deal with some improbable situation]] (like Toki's infamous [[FanNickname Jesus Beam]] that will kill the target while giving him pleasure and deal when you have problems moving, Souther's ability to become intangible, Kenshiro's above-mentioned attack that sealed Souther's intangibility power, Hokuto Ryuuken's attacks, and a Gento attack to freeze ground).

** As an easter egg, ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' has been known to perform ki attacks from Street Fighter. This seems to imply that X has ki, and therefore a soul. Of course, easter eggs are rarely ever canon.

*** Or, if we wanna be a little more reasonable, they can just fire the same sort of run-of-the-mill blaster shots anyone else can (albeit stronger), but they just go through the Hadoken motions.
*** Reploids actually ''do'' have something of a soul, as they are given free will and are not bound by the Laws of Robotics as their predecessors were.
