* Not only does the WhateleyUniverse have Ley Lines all ''over'' the place, but [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] is set just a few miles from [[LovecraftCountry Dunwich]]. Yeah. ''That'' [[EldritchAbomination Dunwich]]. There are [[PlaceOfPower Places of Power]] all around Whateley, and all of them are really, really dangerous.

* In ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'', quite a lot of places with entirely mundane historical or sentimental value in the mortal city of [[ShiningCity Laurentia]] became Places of Power once Laurentia became the battlefield of the Nexus. A lot of formerly physical objects either turned into a [[PortalDoor]] to other planes or became mystically empowered shrines to one of the [[PowersThatBe]]. For instance, the shrine of the [[ForHappiness god of Cooperation]] is a ''necklace'' that was once owned by a historical figure whose [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth tragically short]] life was an inspiration to greater peace, love and harmony throughout Laurentian history.

Added DiffLines:

* A key mechanic in ''VideoGame/MagicAndMayhem'', the main (and often only) source of mana. They are handled quite reasonably in-universe, with each one prominenly marked and buildings and structures often built around them.

* ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' introduces the concept that certain places are stronger in the Force than others, with the cave on Dagobah that Yoda sends Luke into as a test. The ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' and ''[[Franchise/StarWarsLegends Legends]]'' pick this up and run with it.

** Basic lands in ''Magic: The Gathering'' are the inverse of this trope; they're just, well, basic. Many nonbasic lands fulfill this trope, though, from "dual lands" which count as any two of the types of basic lands to lands that can produce more than one mana, which basically means that they naturally generate or have more magical energy than most lands, to lands that do completely different things like animate and fight like creatures. Then there's [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=131005 that change how every other land does its stuff]].
