* In the ''{{Literature/Alterien}}'' series, the Alteriens and the Enhanced can temporarily achieve a higher state in which their bodies are composed of pure energy. This is their most powerful form, but it only lasts for about 2 minutes.

** Magic missile spells are made of force, which is basically the same thing as 'pure energy'. Other force effects include the Bigby's line of spells, and a dragon that BREATHES force energy.

* ''MegaManStarForce 2'' featured Matter Waves. The futuristic society in the series essentially does just about everything using energy waves, such as creating snow for a ski resort, making fountains, and controlling... the... weather. Ignoring all of the completely ridiculous things done with it, however, you still have the Matter Waves, which are basically electromagnetic waves in tangible form. You have Matter Wave Skis, Matter Wave Vacuum Cleaners, Matter Wave {{MacGuffin}}s, and Matter Wave BUTLERS.
* ''LostPlanet'' has "Thermal Energy", which is harvested by killing Akrid. It's some kind of [[PowerGlows glowing]] orange goo that has a large potency. Possibly overlaps with GreenRocks.

* In {{Albion}} forcefields found in one dungeon are apparently made of pure energy. Considering that one of the heroes is a scientist, this understandably confuses him. He does manage to conclude that the field appears to be made of electrical discharges, but has no visible power source. He later concludes that information, energy and matter are interchangeable on the eponymous planet, allowing magic to exist.

* ''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.

* [[VideoGame/SpiderMan2EnterElectro Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro]]'s final boss is "Hyper Electro" which, as described by Stan Lee in his in-game narration, is Electro "transformed into a being of pure energy". They probably meant to say "pure electricity" although that hardly makes any more sense.

This disjointed collection of this after Friendship Island was introduced.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.

** At one point, Megatron concocts a scheme to convert tidal power into Energon, so apparently it's possible to fill Energon cubes by generating electricity. Also yes, he does this in a hilariously stereotypically evil way (by nearly crashing Cybertron into the Earth so the tidal forces at play would generate more waves).

Misinterpreting the law of conservation of energy - "energy cannot be created or destroyed" - to mean that objects made of "Pure Energy" are ''indestructible'' is a common subtrope. Of course, if "energy cannot be created", then we're left to wonder how, according to this subtrope, "Pure Energy" came into being in the first place. Or why the same rule doesn't apply to stuff made of Pure Matter (as the actual [=LoC=] does). [[note]]One source of confusion here is that in laws of conservation, "destroy" means, more or less, '''eliminate entirely from reality'''. In everyday usage, though, it simply means "dismantle into lots of tiny bits" — even if you ''think'' you eliminated the thing from reality. When you "destroy" a piece of paper by setting it on fire, you're not violating physics, because that's a different sense of "destroy". The paper no longer exists as "paper", but as lots of molecules once connected as "paper". In the sense of the [=LoC=], fictional characters indeed have no hope of "destroying" a Pure Energy object, but they don't have any hope of destroying a basketball either — only of (in either case) breaking it down into lots of tiny bits.[[/note]]

You will therefore find the notion in quite a lot of SpeculativeFiction that energy is just another form of matter;-rather than simply a property of it-particularly, a sort of warm [[PowerGlows glowy]] kind of matter, whose exact properties can be fine tuned to user specifications, and which can be summoned or banished with a button-press.
