* ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture''
** ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'' uses time instead of location. When Doc realizes Biff chose [[ContrivedCoincidence November 12, 1955]] as the date to return to to give his younger self the Almanac.
--> '''Doc''': Unbelievable that Biff has chosen that date. It could mean that this date might hold some special significance, being the temporal junction point for the entire space-time continuum! Other than that it could just be an [[BellisariosMaxim amazing coincidence]]...
** ''FilM/BackToTheFuturePartIII'' reveals that there are at least ''three'' versions of Doc Brown and the De Lorean present during that moment in history; the 1955 Doc native to that timeframe, the 1985 Doc who travelled back there and ''his'' future self, the 1885 Doc buried in Boot Hill Cemetery, in addition to the nuclear powered De Lorean from the first film, the fusion powered De Lorean from the second and the De Lorean sent back to 1885, buried for 70 years in the Delgardo Mine.

* ''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.
-->'''Yoda:''' That place is strong in the dark side of the Force. A domain of evil, it is.



* The planet Vjun in ''Yoda: Literature/DarkRendezvous''. Vjun's population had always had a high percentage of Force-sensitives, and then the Viscount Malreaux conducted an experiment to unlock Force potential in the rest. It [[GoneHorriblyRight went horribly right]]; those who weren't killed outright went mad and murdered each other. Vjun is now steeped in the dark side, one of the reasons Count Dooku chooses it as a retreat. All Jedi visitors, even the WeakButSkilled Padawan Scout, have their powers amplified on Vjun, and those who are already strong and prone to the lure of the dark, such as Whie Malreaux and Anakin Skywalker, find themselves capable of amazing feats.



* The four temples in ''VideoGame/TheLegendofZeldaSpiritTracks'' act as power nodes, connected to the Tower of Spirits by the Spirit Tracks.

->There is a place in the galaxy where [[TheDarkSide the Dark Side of the Force]] runs strong. It is something of the Sith, but it was fueled by war. It corrupts all that walks on its surface, drowns them in the power of the Dark Side -- it corrupts all life. And it feeds on death. Revan knew the power of such places... and the power in making them. They can be used to break the will of others... of Jedi, promising them power, and turning them to the Dark Side.

* Termed Nodes in the ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' series, these are formed by the intersection of two or more {{Ley Line}}s and are much sought out by mages and other creatures that feed on or utilize magical power. Only the most powerful of mages ([[PowerLevels Adept-class]]) can handle the energy of a node without being burned out or destroyed.

* Rainbow Resort and the area immediately surrounding the Fountain of Dreams in ''KirbysAdventure'' and especially in the GBA remake. The landscape is bizarre even by Kirby standards with strange geometric shapes and what appear to be vertical music staffs falling from the sky; even the enemies are [[PaletteSwap oddly colored]]. This is possibly a result of the dream giving mist that normally flows from the fountain.
