* Tenshinhan from ''DragonBall'' and ''Dragon Ball Z'''s signature technique, the Kikoho (Tri-Beam in the original dub, translates as [[KiManipulation Ki Control Cannon]]), [[CastFromHitPoints uses his life energy]], making it one of the most powerful techniques in the series even after Tenshinhan himself [[CantCatchUp is left far behind in power compared to the non-human characters]].

* The plot of ''{{Pretear}}'' pretty much revolves around Life Energy (Leafe). In the manga version, this gets downright cruel: the Knights can only use their ElementalPowers at the expense of their own Leafe; as a result, whenever Himeno is performing attacks as the Pretear, she drains the Life Energy from whichever Knight she is currently merged with. The Pretear can also ''create'' Leafe, though. Needless to say, the [[MonsterOfTheWeek monsters]] and the BigBad of the series really like ''stealing'' Leafe...

* In Brandon Sanderson's ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'' Life Energy is measured in "Breaths", which can be removed from a soul with consent of that soul (Everyone starts with one Breath). Once accumulated, these Breaths enhance you in specific ways, allowing you to discern colors and musical tones with higher fidelity, "sense" other lives around you, and become functionally immortal. Furthermore, these Breaths can be placed in an inanimate object, animating them to follow a specific Command. However, the sheer number of Breaths required to achieve these powers (200 to achieve perfect musical tone recognition, all the way up to 2000 Breaths to become immortal), and the state of those left without Breath, make the practice of accumulating Breath highly controversial in most cases.

** 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'']].
