* ''Anime/MobleSuitGundam00'' has its own version in the form of GN ("Gundam Nucleus") Particles. Basically they do all the same things as Minovsky particles (produced via an exotic type of reactor, jam radar, allow non-aerodynamic machines to fly, and make beam weapons possible), along with a few new tricks (increasing the strength of armor and the cutting power of physical blades when they're impregnated with the particles). In the second season, GN Particles go from Minovsky Particles to [[GreenRocks magical pixie dust]], capable of performing such feats as [[EvolutionaryLevels evolving a person]], magically healing dying people, and [[TeleportersAndTransporters teleporting mobile suits at will]]. While these changes are essentially unexplained the series drops hints of it in absolutely every episode, and some of the more "ridiculous" effects are simply extrapolations of previously observed properties. [[spoiler: Basically, the 'true' (green colored) GN Particles had always been magical pixie dust in a sense but humans and technology didn't catch up for all of fifty-two episodes. Aeolia's convoluted Master Plan was intended to facilitate this catching up before his created assistants decided to go off on their own tangent.]]

* [[{{Transformers}} Energon]] is a borderline case; while it was given many more powers than it used to have when it was made the focus of ''TransformersEnergon'', it shares certain properties that remain constant. It is an energy source for the Transformers that come in both solid and liquid forms, has PowerGlows, and goes kaboom quite nicely when manhandled. In its natural state, though, it is unstable and gives off radiation that's hurtful to Transformers in large concentrations (though confusingly organic material is generally immune to it).

** ''TransformersEnergon'' is a series where all the usual rules are kept, but it does a lot more, gaining NewPowersAsThePlotDemands, due to the amount of focus. We meet the Omnicons, who through millennia of AcquiredPoisonImmunity, can handle raw energon, and are the craftsbots who turn it into usable forms. Terrorcons, created from Unicron's body, can ''eat'' raw energon and generate processed energon. Energon Stars are the main form of processed energon, not cubes, and they can be plugged into Autobots, having the same effect as normal energon consumption in most series... or it can make new weapons appear out of thin air, heal massive damage as if by magic, and restore life to dead planets, mechanical and organic, and is said to be the building block of ''all life everywhere.'' Also, raw energon is yellow. When processed, the energon made by Omnicons and used by the Autobots is red, and is as deadly as raw energon - perhaps more - to Decepticons. Terrorcon-made, Decepticon-used energon is green and is similarly deadly to Autobots. Major FridgeLogic here - apparently, that makes the two factions different ''biologically'' somehow, and who knows what that means for when someone changes sides (If [[Anime/TransformersArmada Wheeljack or Scavenger]] were still around, what kind would they use/avoid? And neutrals?) Oh, and letting the two types mix is very ''bad.'' There's also Super Energon - always liquid, will either supercharge you or kill you dead. Mind you, a ''lot'' (not all) of the unique properties of energon in this series, though not mentioned elsewhere, are also not contradicted.

* The ''TomSwift'' series uses two: Tomasite plastic, which can block ionizing radiation and is a good neutron absorber/reflector, thus making relatively small nuclear reactors practical, and the repelatron, essentially a pressor beam with rigidly defined properties; for example, a repelatron tuned to repel sea water in a given location, creating a dry construction area for a helium collection plant, must be adjusted constantly so its output will be exactly right, or it could fail to repel the sea water. Worse yet, it could repel the blood plasma in the workers! Tomasite is also very strong, and can be produced as a solid, an air-cell foam, and a vacuum-cell foam.

* Despite looking like AWizardDidIt, Lux in ''TalesOfTheQuestor'' follows some rather specific rules and capabilities. Most of the underlying rules are only revealed by {{Word of God}} in the forums, but for a funky and surprisingly stable particle with rather specialized interactions with typical matter, its practitioners are still more intent on viewing it as a science than a matter of magic.

** Pym particles, named after [[ComicBook/AntMan Hank Pym]] which allow matter to be shrunk or enlarged at will, ignoring the square cube law and drawing extra mass (in the case of growing) from or shunting excess mass (in the case of shrinking) to another dimension;

[[SizeShifter size]], [[SquareCubeLaw strength]] and [[HollywoodDensity density]]. They illustrate this with Ant-Man and two other seemingly unrelated characters whose powers applied Pym Particles on those other axes.

** In ''Beast Wars'' episode [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Beast_Wars_episodes Power Surge]], the Predacon Terrosaur, is running low on energy and is far from base. He gets a charge off a surface-exposed chunk of raw energon. It powers him up [[spoiler: and how!]], but repeated use proves addictive and nearly fatal. This ties in with raw energon is dangerous to Transformers.

** Also worthy of noting, the more well layouted properties of the Minovsky Particle is actually more from FanWank, originally detailed in Gundam Century, which is written largely by editors of Magazine OUT along with the creators of MobileSuitGundam, a then middle schooler added quite a lot of thought in it as well. Later more elaborate explanation, by fans and endorsed officially, of the special powers of Newtypes are also explained by Minovsky particles(using existing properties of it)
