** Arguably, Darth Nihilus from ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic is even more impressive. With telekinesis, he was able to rip a starship (admittedly, not quite as large as a Star Destroyer) out of a crushing planetary gravity well that devastated an entire planet and constantly hold the ship together for a period of months or years.

** ''PokemonSpecial'': Yellow's powers are limited to controlling a Pokeball tied to the end of her fishing line, but it has proved to be incredibly useful in many situations.

* For all its spiritual bent, in ''Franchise/StarWars'', the vast majority of what we see The Force do is just lift, shove, [[PsychicStrangle choke]], or crush things. But then it ''is'' called the ''Force''.
** A good example of how powerful a Force-sensitive individual can be is Starkiller in ''VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'', who manages to pull a ''Star Destroyer'' out of the sky and crash it. He did have some help from gravity, but it's still one of the most impressive telekinetic feats in ''Star Wars'' history. And by far the most impressive by a single, unassisted Force-user.
*** He also ends up nearly dying as a result, as he doesn't actually aim where he crashes the ship and it heads straight for him. Apparently, diving out of the way of a giant crashing starship by a few meters is enough to avoid being killed.

** This is Darth Vader's favorite [[PsychicStrangle force power]], and his [[SignatureMove signature move]]. He especially likes to use it against those that have [[YouHaveFailedMe failed him for the last time]], and those whom he [[PsychicStrangle finds their lack of faith disturbing]].

* Largely ''averted'' in the Literature/{{Lensman}} universe - for all the Lensmen's other psionic talents and all the other cranking up to eleven this universe does, this is one capability they specifically do NOT have. On the other hand, the Arisians - their ultimate benefactors - have it in spades, and it's implied that the eventual goal of the Galactic Patrol (long after the canon events are complete) will be to develop independence of the need for physical weapons.

** Ben mostly uses his telekinesis in very subtle ways throughout ''Literature/StarWarsKenobi'', though keeping a dewback from landing on Annileen when he thinks no one is looking does make A'Yark suspicious. Later, when his cover is blown among the Tuskens, he throws two of them into sand dunes to keep from having to harm them permanently.

* {{Pokemon}} has the Psychic elemental move Telekinesis, which lifts the target in the air, granting most moves minus OHKOs a guaranteed hit for three turns, but gives the foe a Ground immunity. The move called "Kinesis" lowers the opponent's accuracy (presumably by deflecting attacks coming at the user)

* Some of the more powerful [[WitchSpecies Hexenbiests]] in ''Series/{{Grimm}}'' are capable of this, although they don't use it much. It's mentioned off-handedly that this is due to their intimate connection to the "primal forces". After getting her powers back, Adalind is surprised at the extent at which she's able to do this, to the point of getting a Verrat soldier to [[PsychicAssistedSuicide shoot himself]] (although she claims to have been trying to get him to drop the gun). Her infant daughter (3/4 Hexenbiest and 1/4 Royal) is able to manipulate objects remotely without any effort, besides other powers. [[spoiler:Juliette]] is also able to do this after becoming a Hexenbiest (according to another Hexenbiest, a very powerful one), forcing a Manticore to stab himself with his own sting and exploding a car engine in a fit of anger. Later, [[spoiler:Juliette/Eve]] uses telekinesis as her primary mode of attack, either forcing enemies' heads to explode or throwing them up in the air and then slamming them down. She even gets to have a telekinetic fight with [[spoiler:Conrad Bonaparte, a full Zauberbiest]], who proves to be too strong even for her.

* In ''Literature/SuperPowereds'', there are two telepaths/telekinetics (those two seem to go together) in the current HCP class. Mary is the more powerful (in fact, some think she's the most powerful telekinetic in the world). Alex is weaker, but he hates it when people call him a telepath or a telekinetic. As far as he's concerned, he's a [[Franchise/StarWars Jedi]], using the Force to sense emotions and move objects. Others just think he's a weirdo. Strangely, he may be more right than people think. Normal telekinetics are unable to affect things made of PureEnergy, but Alex can (especially when he gets pissed off at people calling him a telekinetic). Also, when the resident [[PowerCopying power-copier]] attempts to use his power the same way he just used Mary's, it doesn't work until Alex gets him to think of it as calling to the Force.
