* A pure energy entity also appears in a JusticeLeague comic from the late eighties. It's handled more realistically than most and a lot is made of the fact that it shouldn't exist. Captain Atom states that "According to what I remember about physics, any uncontained energy should dissipate immediately." and calls in Doctor Fate to make sure there are no supernatural explanations for a physics-defying... thing appearing out of thin air.

* Notably {{Averted}} with the ''[[Franchise/StarWars Star Wars]]'' "Light Saber". As in the trope image, such a thing might have been called an "Energy Saber" or "Energy Sword", perhaps made of PureEnergy of TheForce.

It's never really addressed on-screen, but various materials reveal that the trope image, such a thing might have been called an "Energy Saber" or "Energy Sword", perhaps blade is made of PureEnergy of TheForce.from plasma (which is also probably ArtisticLicensePhysics, but in a different way).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/SavageDivinity'' Heavenly Energy works this way, when harnessed it can be used to create matter and has all sorts of other seemingly impossible uses that defy common sense.

** Even more lethal is the [[PurpleIsPowerful purple dragon]] (detailed in ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'' magazine), whose energy breath weapon is supposedly a combination of the fire and lightning breaths of its red and blue parents.

* ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline'' seems to be a fan of this, given that the game features futuristic energy weapons that are seemingly limitless in use. What plays this trope straight are the rare collectibles called 'Photon Drops' and 'Photon Spheres', which are described as a "High purity crystal Photon" and "Rare super pure crystal Photon', respectively. Photons are what the aforementioned energy weapons and guns are described to put out. Why bits of crystalized energy are so important to a side character is unknown, especially since the standard usable photon weapons have an unlimited amount of energy to function- but he'll be willing to offer extremely rare items and upgrade your equipment for them.\\\
To make things even weirder, the Photon Spheres and Photon Drops are depicted as any other rare drop when on the ground- a deep-red box probably only slightly larger than someone's head. Even if the model size isn't indicative of the item itself, one has to wonder how somebody is supposed to handle a crystalized form of a substance that is regularly shot out of guns and ejected out of blade handles for the purpose of shredding beasts and frenzied robots alike. Ouch.

* ''WebAnimation/TheLazerCollection'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3ZYF-Zmo2E&t=0m40s Just. Pure. Energy]]. This disjointed collection of 4chan-esque shorts might be the only instance where the words "pure energy" actually make sense. The "lazers" are just a large wave of light, heat, and concussive force -- the purest expressions of energy in a system -- expelled all at once.

* In [[VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown X-COM: Enemy Unknown]], the Outsider alien is deemed a being "made of almost pure energy" by Dr. Vahlen. She's just as confused as the rest of us, perhaps lampshading the impossibility of this trope.
