* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' has faith function as the game's magic. The more devout a person is to their god and/or religion, the higher their Faith stat is. A high Faith makes the party member stronger in magic and will also take just as much magical damage in turn. Likewise, low Faith makes the person weaker in casting magic, but magic attacks will barely affect them. If a person's Faith gets too high, they'll leave the party in pursuit of their religious beliefs.

* Human magic in ''Literature/Birthright2017'' is explicitly performed through prayer to their goddess, albeit in a special language of [[MagicalGestures hand gestures and poses]]. Although whether or not faith is necessary is dubious, as Sabrina suggests the practitioner of another religion could learn it.

* Magic in ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' is most commonly portrayed in this manner. The Triforce, the most powerful magic artifact in the mythos, came into being when the Golden Goddesses left for the heavens after creating Hyrule, and it operates on a set of rules that generally keep demons and other wicked individuals from claiming it for their own ends. Starting in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', Link has also gotten various magical artifacts and powers bequeathed by the vaguely priest-like Sages. Zelda and the rest of the Royal Family of Hyrule also tend to have a RoyaltySuperPower of some sort, usually one that lets them [[SealedEvilInACan seal away]] Ganon and other villains, that was originally passed down to them by the goddess Hylia; the religious nature of this is especially apparent in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'', where Zelda must pray at holy springs to unlock said power.
