* Saiyans with tails on turn into giant monkeys by seeing the moon in ''Franchise/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. This also means that anything that can generate that same light can trigger the transformation. Gohan's transformation was triggered a second time (after Piccolo destroyed the moon to stop his first transformation) by Goku's original pod projecting an image of a full moon into the sky. Goku's father Bardock also figured out how to create a Power Ball that could simulate full moonlight, which Vegeta used against Goku in their first battle after losing a BeamOfWar with him.

* ''Webcomics/ChampionsOfFaraus'': Potions of Lunacy can only be made when in the light of the full moon, and the potion itself causes people to [[MushroomSamba hallucinate]] and go crazy.

* Being caused by the moon (and the sun), the tides do vary by moon phase. However, tides have no measurable influence on human being and most domestic animals. There ''are'' a few (specifically marine) animals that time their breeding with the tides or the phase of the moon, though.

The '''moon''' does things to people. [[AllPeriodsArePMS Makes women crazy]], drives the lunatics, or maybe enhances your supernatural powers. The full moon might bring out the monster in someone, or a new moon may [[BroughtDownToNormal bring the human]] out of a monster. In general, the moon is often a catalyst in magical things.

* TheSims3's ''Supernatural'' expansion introduced, among other things, lunar cycles. The time of the full moon is when werewolves transform, witches and fairies are at the peak of their power, and Sims randomly turn into zombies.

* 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.
