* [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Harry Dresden]] has a charmed ring that stores up kinetic energy every time he moves his arm, which he can release at will as a MegatonPunch - enough to flip a car at low levels. It doesn't seem to have an upper limit to just how much it can store, and it's knocked more than one supernatural nasty on its ass.
** He started off with one, but as the series progressed and the villains [[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil became more powerful]], Harry got a whole bunch and now wears them all at the same time.

* [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Harry Dresden]] Dresden]], among his other magical gadgets, has a charmed ring that stores up a little bit of kinetic energy every time he moves his arm, which he can release at will as a MegatonPunch - or as a blast of kinetic force that packs a bigger punch than what he can easily summon up on his own. At maximum charge his ring stoers up enough force to flip a car at low levels. It doesn't seem to have an upper limit to just how much it can store, car, and it's knocked more than one supernatural nasty on its ass.
** He started off with one, but as the series progressed and the villains [[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil became more powerful]], Harry got a whole bunch few more, including one which is a few rings braided together. As the series progressed, he eventually ends up losing them.
** Ebenezar McCoy, Harry's second mentor, was at one point noted to have a similar ring for each one of his fingers. It's not entirely clear if these used kinetic force as well, but being a senior wizard with more than two centuries of experience
and now wears them all at the same time.''a lot'' of power under his belt, Ebenezar could easily cook up some rings that are really scary.

* VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV has the Ring of the Lucii, a royal heirloom ring that bestows great magical powers to the kings of Lucis. The ring itself also holds the will of the previous kings of Lucis which will burn any ringbearers that are deemed unworthy of its power (Even the worthy non-royal ringbearers aren't safe, as Nyx could use its power for a single night in exchange for his life). Interestingly, the magical power bestowed by the ring can be used even after the ring is taken off.

When Wismerhill turns against Haazheel, he has Shamballeau build other rings that will negate their effect. It works for a moment, but as soon as Haazheel notices this he destroys the second rings in swift order.

* The Six American Warriors in ''WesternAnimationSpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' were a team of superheroes led by ComicBook/CaptainAmerica during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. Created using various versions of the SuperSerum that made Captain America who he is (due to the lack of the precise formula), their powers were different and unstable. To compensate, special rings were created that activated their powers on demand, even though those powers would fade over time. Keene Marlow (AKA Destroyer), one of the Six, eventually retired (when his BadassBystander ways got the love of his life killed) and gave his ring to Ben Parker for safekeeping. He eventually got the ring back from Peter and used it one last time to help defeat Red Skull and Electro.
