** In several editions, ''too'' much life energy was a bad thing -- the Plane of Positive Energy would heal you, since, well, it's the plane ''of'' life energy. Then, once you're fully healed, it'd keep on infusing life energy right up to the point where you go from 'have lots more (temporary) hit points than usually' to ''exploding''.

** Also, "Forest of the Dead" subverts the usual rule about the EverythingSensor in regards to life forms: once the Doctor specifies that he's not interested only in ''humanoid'' life signs, the Library sensors report on [[OhCrap ''every one of the billions of Vashda Narada spores'']].

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' makes this what constitutes all souls, including nonliving things. Hollows can increase their amount of it by eating other souls, including (and especially) each other. Quincies can increase it by forcefully breaking down their surroundings and absorbing them. Soul Reapers have various ways to increase how much of it they have, but no special feature to speak of. However, unlike normal human souls, they must eat, and they release their spirit energy constantly. An anime filler arc features vampire-like creatures called Bount, which drain the life force out of their victims (directly) as opposed to blood.

It's connected to [[OurSoulsAreDifferent souls]], HermeticMagic, KiAttacks, PsychicPowers and other superpowers; see also {{Mana}}. In RolePlayingGame terms, it's the combination of Hit Points, Magic Points, and Experience. Transferring it may cause physical changes that are LiquidAssets. Occasionally, part of an EquivalentExchange to power an ArtifactOfDoom or EvilWeapon.

* Essence in ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' is kind of this: Put simply, it's how 'in tune' your personal magical field is with your corporeal body. People can lose Essence by getting their auras disturbed (being attacked by TheUndead or becoming burn-out addicts to a narcotic for example) or by [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul replacing too much of their body with cybernetics]]. Essence Loss is very bad for mages since it limits their ability to do magic, and too much Essence loss causes emotional problems, dissociative mental issues and eventually death.
** Notably, TheUndead in ''Shadowrun'' explicitly feed on Essence. The part where a vampire drinks your blood is because this is the best way to create an emotional state (namely, fear of your attacker) where it's easiest for them to drain your Essence -- the liquid itself is of no particular import, which is why ''Shadowrun'' vampires can't raid blood banks or drink from the sleeping to get their fix.
