* Actively used in ''ForgottenRealms'' with the goddess Selune-the oldest deity in existence (barring her evil twin), and extremely difficult to get a handle on in regards to her actual portfolio, which changes like the moon. Specifically the goddess of lycanthropes and women, but also encompasses divination, travelling, questing, tolerance, female spellcasters...
* In ''MagicTheGathering'', magic associated with the Moon is usually either red (chaos) or blue (intellect). Depending on the setting, the local Moon might be of other colours, like white (order) and black (ambition), such as in Kamigawa (where it is blue and black) and the new Innistrad setting (where the Moon empowers both the local white flavoured church and the green and red werewolves, as well as a blue Planeswalker, though she is from Kamigawa). The moon of Innistrad is a truly otherworldly thing, being a potent source of mana that can induce transformations. A shard of it was once used to create the Helvault, a nigh unbreakable prison for demons. The moon itself [[spoiler:eventually becomes the prison for the Eldrazi Titan Emrakul.]]
* In the ''{{Dragonlance}}'' setting, arcane magic is governed by the three moons Solinari, Lunitari, and Nuitari (and the deities of the same names). Solinari is silver, Lunitari is red and Nuitari is [[WeirdMoon black]]. The last governs evil magic, and is, for obvious reasons, really hard to see.

* Saiyans with tails on turn into giant monkeys by seeing the moon on ''{{Dragonball}}''. In one of the few times that the author tries to rationalize anything in this manga, Vegeta explains that Saiyans absorb the special frequency of light caused by the full moon and a certain gland in their tails prompts their transformation.
* In ''{{Tsukihime}}'', power of vampires is dependent on the phase of the moon. On full moon, even [[spoiler: regenerating from one's ankles up]] is possible. The reason for this is [[spoiler:all vampires are descended from what is essentially the AnthropomorphicPersonification of the moon: Crimson Moon Brunestud.]]

** ''Apocalypse'' makes it clear that the Garou's Rage - the anger and fury that makes them capable of superhuman acts in combat and [[NiceJobBreakingItHero has probably resulted in a few of their greatest mistakes over the millennia]] - is a gift from Luna. Those who pissed her off, like the Nuwisha (werecoyotes), don't get the same benefit.

* ''{{Exalted}}'' gives similar treatment to Luna, specifically how her chosen, the Lunar Exalted, regard her. Like all Exalted, Lunars accrue [[LimitBreak Limit]] if they go against their guiding Virtues; however, they ''also'' gain Limit whenever the full moon's in the sky. Instead of realizing there may be some external reason for their [[HeroicBSOD occasional crazy rampages]], they just ascribe it to Luna being chaotic like that.
