* ''MutantsAndMasterminds'' uses actual PowerLevels to constrain characters to a roughly even playing field. All offensive and defensive powers must be at or under their character's PL. The only exception is that it is allowable to trade off on opposing traits like accuracy versus damage, or defense versus toughness. Powers like non-offensive teleportation and telekinesis lack such bounds except in house rulings. Like D&D, it's rare for this to come up in-character, however.

** Additionally, some bad guy groups have group-specific PowerLevel-like ways of demonstrating their strength relative to one another such as [=CP9's=] Douriki. The Douriki is pretty much a straight example, which was used during the [=CP9=] arc to rank the members of that storyline's QuirkyMinibossSquad. For a scale comparison, the average soldier has a rating of 10, and anyone above 500 is essentially superhuman. [[TheDragon CP9's strongest member]], Rob Lucci, had a rating of 4000 (nearly double that of the next two below him, Kaku and Jyabura who had 2200 and 2180 respectively). Afterward, Douriki was never mentioned again, on account of it being specific to [=CP9=]. Amusingly, the dub outright calls it power levels, including a not-so-subtle "Over 9000" reference.

However, he has a devil fruit-powered sword, so he is not completely defenseless.[[/note]]

* The ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' series by MercedesLackey features a defined system for measuring the Power Level of mages. Apprentices are those with a bare minimum of talent or those just learning the art. Journeymen can manipulate their own LifeEnergy as well as power [[BackgroundMagicField from their immediate surroundings]]. Masters are able to manipulate {{Ley Line}}s, and Adepts can manage [[PlaceOfPower nodes]], the strongest energy sources. Somewhat confusingly, the same terms are used to describe both a mage's current rank and their maximum potential, so one could be a Journeyman who aspires to Adept or a Master who is incapable of progressing farther. It is implied that PsychicPowers operate on a similar scale but no formal measurements are ever introduced.
