* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', this trope is one of the features of [[FusionDance gem fusion]]. Fusions are a good deal more powerful than the sum of their parts, and forming one feels ''good''. True to the nature of the trope, though, this is not without its cons. [[TheBrute Sugilite]] is so caught up in her own raw power that she refuses to unfuse back into Amethyst and Garnet. Pearl so deeply enjoys the strength and confidence she experiences as [[FunPersonified Sardonyx]] that she [[spoiler: starts pulling off a series of one-gem [[FalseFlagOperation False Flag Operations]] in secret, just to create an excuse to fuse with Garnet again. When Jasper takes control of her and Lapis' fusion Malachite, it's clear she's having the time of her life with the sheer power she now possesses.]]

* The reason the modern Claymores from ''{{Claymore}}'' are exclusively female is because release of yoki (demonic energy that powers them) is this to men. To be even exacter, male Claymores (produced long ago) experienced the power-up as sexual pleasure and [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Awakened]] almost immediately.

The pleasure this power gives is usually expressed to phrases like "[[BigYes Yes!, yes! yes!]]", "I can feel the power surging through my veins", "This feels so good" or similar, often in a very explicit way.

* {{Mecha}} pilots in ''{{Taiyou No Tsubasa}}'' react in a very orgasmic way when their mechs [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything combine]]. The mechs gain a lot of power from the resulting MindMeld, but the moaning and facial expressions are probably just there for {{Fanservice}}.

** The sequel ''Anime/AquarionEvol'' handles it the same way. The next sequel, ''Anime/AquarionLogos'', has it show up much more rarely. It being unrelated to the previous two seasons may have had something to do with that.
