* The ''Anime/PokemonTheMovieBlackAndWhite'' uses the dragon pulse belief described under Feng Shui as a source of [[DiabolousExMachina random conflict]] near the climax. Removing the castle from its spot disrupted the one it was resting on, causing a destructive chain reaction. They had to head off the disruption a few miles down the vein and plant the castle there to stop it.

* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' has ley lines as current of supernatural energy which conduct resonance (the overriding concepts of a person place or thing; e.g. a hospital could have a strong resonance of healing or sickness), and their course is influenced by the local landscape. Nodes are where ley lines intersect, and where their resonances mix and intensify. Mages can harness nodes for free energy. Ley lines and nodes tend to influence the resonance of the areas they pass through. [[PlaceOfPower Hallows]] which occur within nodes tend to be heavily tainted by the resonance, which makes the {{Mana}} less suited for mages.

Now ley lines (sometimes written as leylines) are hypothetical alignments between [[PlaceOfPower places of power]], which may be [[{{Mana}} magical]]magnetic, or psychic in nature. These places of power are where two or more ley lines cross and are often known as Ley Nodes, Nodes, or Nexuses. Nodes are often regarded as spooky or unearthly. Stonehenge is said to be built on one such intersection.

* Ley lines are at the heart of ''{{Rifts}}''. In the backstory, the [[WorldWreckingWave Great Cataclysm]] was caused when a nuclear war took place on the [[WhenThePlanetsAlign Winter Solstice, during a planetary alignment]], feeding vast amounts of power into the ley lines. This overload set off natural disasters across the planet, causing further fatalities and pouring ''more'' energy into the ley lines, until finally the world was left in ruins. In the game's [[AfterTheEnd present day]], the ley lines are still empowered, and can be seen from space. They are such a noteworthy source of power that the average magician is known as a Ley Line Walker.
** And where two or more Ley lines converge, they create a Nexus. Nexus points are where the eponymous Rifts appear.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' has Ley Lines called [[http://pl.shadowrun.wikia.com/wiki/Manalines_and_Power_Sites "Mana Lines."]] In Asia they're called "dragon lines". Places where they cross (and greatly increase ambient mana) are called "power sites".

* The internet is probably the only real-life example that fits this trope quite well. Take a look at the [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d2/Internet_map_1024.jpg map of the internet]]. If you tap into the points where nodes meet, such as an internet backbone, your internet speed will shoot through the roof.

These things were first described by archaeologist Alfred Watkins in 1921, in his book ''Thye Old Straight Track''. He claimed that in ancient times when Britain was very densely forested, people built roads in geographically convenient straight lines. He believed that the lines had been called "leys" because so many of them passed through towns with "ley" in their name. He would later claim that these "ley lines" existed in many countries all over the world, especially in Europe. His theories were generally dismissed by his peers, however.
