** 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.

* 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.

In this sort of system, you can treat "Pure Energy" as a [[HardLight building material]], and [[ElementalCrafting make things out of it]]. Such things would, quite naturally, be of higher quality than anything made out of mundane old matter. In the universe of real physics, claiming something is "made out of pure energy" is flat out nonsensical -- it makes as much sense as saying you can make a car "out of pure velocity," or make pasta "[[InsubstantialIngredients made out of pure yummy]]".
