* The ''Franchise/{{Wild ARMs}}'' series seems to alternate between having one or multiple ley lines running through Filgaia. It is mentioned directly in ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 1}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 3}}'', with the first game [[BlindIdiotTranslation mistranslating]] it as "Ray Line" (although this was fixed in the [[VideoGameRemake remake]]).
** Ley points also appear in ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 4}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 5}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs XF}}''. They are identified with one of each of the elements and affect the element of spells or [[SummonMagic summons]] used from on top of them.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 2}}'', they're mentioned as part of the plan to trap an EldritchLocation inside a "Mana Prison". However, they're again mistranslated, this time as "Ralines" and "Raypoints".

* ''Ley Lines'' (''Nihon Kuro Shakai'') is the English literal title of Japanese director TakashiMiike's 1999 film, which does not address the phenomenon of ley lines directly, but rather uses the idea subliminally as the film's heroes set out along their own 'ley lines', or the railways of Honshu to Tokyo. It is the final installment in a [[ThematicSeries series of three films]], titled 'Black Society Trilogy'.

* The world of ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is riddled with Ley Lines powered by Good, Evil or Arcane energy. They can be absorbed to recharge one's ManaMeter, but Good and Evil ley lines may harm those that they deem unworthy.

* ''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.

Added DiffLines:

In reality, there are MANY English villages and towns that end in the syllable "-ley". So it isn't surprising that any line drawn on a map would fall close to at least one such place. The Anglo-Saxons were in the habit of building their villages in forest clearings. "Ley" is simply the Old English word for a forest clearing, which is why so many places end in the syllable "-ley".

* ''Anime/LittleWitchAcademia'' features this as part of the territory. The Leylines are a series of networks around the world that allow magical energy to flow and connect various geographical locations, making them both a magic power source and a form of fast transportation for witches. Additionally, they're later explained to have formed from the roots and branches of [[WorldTree Yggdrasil]], and become unstable when anti-magic objects like salt are brought into them.

* One could possibly make an argument that electric lines are built on a similar system, because there are good and bad places to ground, for the flow of electricity.

* One [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telluric_current Telluric current]] is the Earth's natural electricity that flows underground and underwater. There's also [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_noise White noise]] (aka static) experienced when an analog radio or TV picks up radio frequencies from the atmosphere.

The book ''Cross Currents'' notes that widespread human electrical systems are such a recent occurrence that the interaction with the Earth's natural electrical systems (even it's magnetic field) could be affected in ways that may take centuries to understand fully. This may be a problem as we depend on the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth%27s_magnetic_field geomagnetic field]] to protect us from solar and cosmic radiation, and we've already seen what can happen when chemical [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozone_depletion pollution interacts with the Ozone layer.]]

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'' (and by extension ''VideoGame/TalesofZestiria'', which ''Berseria'' is a distant prequel to) calls them "the earthpulse." A good chunk of the game involves hunting down nexuses, called earthpulse points. On a few occasions the cast actually enters the earthpulse physically.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' features the Dragon Vein mechanic, where any dragon-blooded (read: royal) character standing on a tile with [[PlaceOfPower streams of glowing energy]] can use their turn to alter the terrain and conditions on the map. Upon using it, a silhouette based on one of TheFourGods appears on-screen, hinting it might be akin to the same Dragon Veins in Feng Shui. In-game myth explains this as a side effect of having the blood of the god figure who shaped the world in its very beginning.
