* While it hasn't influenced the plot, one annotation on ''IrregularWebcomic'' pointed out that moving vast numbers of ancient artifacts to the world's museums would turn them into immensely powerful nodes.
* The physics of magic in ''ElfBlood'' dictate that magical energy is fluid, and flows along tidal pathways that essentially act as leylines. When two or more of them meet, they push up against each other and form a lofty PlaceOfPower that is a valuable resource for mages.

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Visionaries}}'' fanfic, ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11534297/4/Blood-in-the-Water Blood in the Water]]'' featured as a plot point, in which it compares leylines to rivers through which magic (''as water'') "flows" across the world. Damaging one is implied to threaten the balance of magic everywhere on the planet.

They are often invisible conduits of magical power that flow through the earth and air. Mages can tap into them to gain their powers. Places where multiple lines intersect at nodes attracts wizards and other supernatural beings like moths to a flame.

** They were the basis for the "Millennium Giants" story arc in the ''Comicbook/{{Superman}}'' comics in the 1990s. Giants (suspiciously similar to Marvel's Celestials) woke up and started walking around Earth causing chaos, until Superman restored the natural balance of the Lines by sacrificing the electric powers that he had gained previously. (The whole thing might have been just an excuse to get him back to normal.)

* PonyPOVSeries: According to 7 Dreams/Nightmares: Bright Eyes story, It turns out in the POV-verse, this world has nine lay lines, with three places where the lines converge: Everfree Forest (with the Castle of the Two Sisters as being the true convergent point), a location in the Griffon lands, and a third in the Deer homeland. Zebras, Minotaurs, and Deer are able to use the leylines to access knowledge about the world and other worlds due to the nature of their own magic
