* Asagami Fujino in the third ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' book/movie can do a very specific form; she can bend things. It doesn't sound like much until you add in the fact that she can do this to anything she thinks is remotely bendable -- in particular, ''human limbs''. At the end of her story as she is cornered by Shiki, [[spoiler:she gets a DesperationAttack upgrade in the form of boosted power and [[MySignificanceSenseIsTingling clairvoyance]], which removes her one weakness -- having to actually [[NoEyeInMagic see the thing in order to bend it]]. Asagami to suspension bridge: '''''[[Awesome/AnimeAndManga BEND!!!!!!]]''''']].

* In TigerAndBunny, [[GooGooGodlike the Sternbild mayor's]] ''[[GooGooGodlike baby]]'' son, [[GooGooGodlike Sam]], has this as his NEXT power. Young as he is, at the moment he only causes things to break or fly into the air when he cries. Even so, it was enough to spoil the plans of a trio of kidnappers who thought they were kidnapping a pair of harmless, non-superpowered, children.

* In ''{{Psyren}}'', Telekenesis is the most basic psychic ability of the "Burst" category. Marie and Grana are specialized in this, using it with great precision and power ([[KillSat especially Grana]]).

* AnneMcCaffrey's ''[[Literature/TowerAndTheHive Talents]]'' series has telekinetics so powerful they can fold space to [[TeleportersAndTransporters teleport]] mass over light-years, thus making them the invaluable cornerstone of an interstellar civilization. They require outside energy sources to power their higher-grade uses of this ability, but [[SoLastSeason that requirement gets de-emphasized with each book in the series and each generation of Talents]] to the point where it's practically a MagicFeather.
* In MarionZimmerBradley's ''{{Darkover}}'' series, this is one of the expressions of [[PsychicPowers "laran"]], which is possessed by the highly-evolved alien [[OurElvesAreDifferent Chieri]], some humans and their HalfHumanHybrid descendents. Very few humans can manifest this kind of power without the aid of natural or artificial [[AmplifierArtifact "matrix crystals"]] (aka. "starstones"). However, a group of "laran"-gifted humans working with a powerful enough (usually artificial) matrix can level entire cities.
* In JohnCWright's ''Literature/ChroniclesOfChaos'', one technique of power.
* In ''WildCards'', minor telekinesis is one of the most common powers, but most can only levitate small items such as coins and paper clips. The Great And Powerful Turtle can lift ''battleships''. But [[WeaksauceWeakness only in the safety]] of his [[MagicFeather armored "shell"]] does he feel comfortable enough to do so.

** It's AllInTheManual that one of Ermac's most influential souls is the last king of Edenia -- King Jerrod, which holds him back from out-and-out slaughter. [[spoiler:In their ending in 9, that soul becomes the dominant part of the HiveMind.]] In ''X'' it's implied that another powerful soul that resides within Ermac is [[spoiler:Shao Kahn himself]], who is apparently locked in a power struggle with Jerrod.

* Animus dragons in ''Literature/WingsOfFire'' have the ability to control objects, which at a basic level lets them do this, though they are also capable of more powerful enchantments.

* Aries Mu from ''SaintSeiya'' has this in spades, combined with telepathy, PsychicPowers and pink hair. He can lift up houses, and his apprentice, Kiki, likes to hurl great big rocks at people with his mind.

* In ''DragonBallZ'', Chiaotzu has shown telekinetic abilities. Also, Guldo, of the [[QuirkyMiniBossSquad Ginyu Force]], uses this as well. And so do Frieza (lifting the Dragon Balls), Cell (building his arena) and the Kaioshin (making the super hard metal float).
