** Rand has a habit of [[SpontaneousWeaponCreation creating swords of Fire]] in early books when he's more comfortable with a blade than the One Power.

It can be anything, including weapons, objects and animals. Usually it's strictly done for RuleOfCool or for characterize the user of said powers, for example a [[AnimalMotifs bird-related character]] will make avian-shaped attacks. [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons Dragons tend to be a popular choice too]]. It may overlap with WeaponOfChoice in some cases of weapon-shaped attacks.
