** In the alternate magic system detailed in TabletopGame/SpheresOfPower has spell points. Unlike most other implementations of this mechanic, you can still use your spheres' base talents when you're out of spell points, you just can't augment it or activate some of the deeper talents.

* Since ''VideoGame/ALinkToThePast'', the ''Zelda'' series generally allows Link access to a [[ManaMeter Magic Meter]] in order to use magic powers, although it is not present in all games (''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' being a notable example).

* ''AnimaBeyondFantasy'' uses magic points named ''zeon'', that are gained and/or bought when your character levels up. In addition to it the game has also another stat, that shows how much zeon you can summon from your reserve each turn and is so critical as having many zeon points.

* In the ''{{Lunar}}'' games, all special attacks, including KiAttacks use up the same [=MP=]. However, they do not all count as "magic" as defined by the series. This gets weird in ''Lunar 2'', when Ronfar's healing spells are determined to be "not magic."

* ''Webcomic/{{Kubera}}'': "Vigor" is a general personal energy used to cast spells or use magic items, but different entities regenerate it in different ways.
** Gods have incredibly high amounts of Vigor, but the rules were changed after a recent and devastating war, so gods can no longer access their full power in the mortal realm. Instead, they are limited to using the Vigor of their summoner, and they can very easily kill the summoner if they are not careful. The death of their summoner means they are sent back to the divine realm.
** [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Sura]] also have incredibly high Vigor reserves, but their natural rate of regeneration is so low as to be practically nonexistent. Instead, they only regenerate Vigor by devouring living creatures--both humans and [[ImAHumanitarian other sura]]. They don't need to eat otherwise. In fact, a common trick in sura combat is to devour an opponent's eyes or other valuable body part, as something that has been devoured and turned into Vigor is very difficult for a sura to regenerate with their otherwise overpowered HealingFactor.
** Humans have very low amounts of Vigor, which puts a noticeable cap on their power. Their Vigor regeneration is normally reasonable, but it depends on their mental state. Being worried and tired reduces their regeneration rate, while being rested increases it. It has also been noted that if their mental state is ''exactly right'', their Vigor regenerates so fast that it becomes essentially infinite, allowing them to cast spells or use magic items that would normally kill them.

{{Mana}} can have many names, and often overlaps with {{Ki}} in its depiction - what differentiates them is how they are drawn out and used. Typically KiAttacks are martial-arts-based and can be improved through physical training, while wielding mana is [[MagicIsMental an exclusively mental affair]] which may [[RitualMagic require components and rituals]]. But prior to leaving the body, the "stuff" used seems to be the same.
