Added DiffLines:

* Soul Power in the "Literature/TheZombieKnight" manifests in the ability for [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Servants]] to make something [[SuperToughness tougher]] or to make an attack more potent. It is the only way to harm a reaper, the source of a servant's life and strength, and Aberrations. Soul power can also be used to prevent a weaker servant from using their unique ability. It can be a major deciding factor in fights because of this and as soul power can only increase with [[StrongerWithAge age]] older servants can completely stomp scores of younger ones.

* It turns out the Element of Desire that Dark World!Rarity ends up with in the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' has this. Rarity can allow ghosts to inhabit her body with her, which gives her the ability to project them as golems to help her fight. She also [[spoiler:nearly takes Fluttercruel's OneWingedAngel form Odyne's soul to [[SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan seal it inside herself]], but Odyne fends her off.]]

* In VisualNovel/FateStayNight and its [[{{Prequel}} prequel]], LightNovel/FateZero, the Holy Grail [[spoiler:and the true artifact powering it, Greater Grail]] is actually this. It recreates the souls of dead heroes throughout the ages [[spoiler:including from the future,]] and summons them as familiars called Servants. Even the way it grants wish, it materializes the desire inside the Holy Grail War winner's soul and turn it into reality. Makes sense, since the Holy Grail [[spoiler:is actually an attempt to recreate the [[RealityWarper Third True Magic]], whose domain is to materialize and manipulate soul.]]

This can be either a villainous or heroic power, depending on how it's portrayed and used. (If portrayed negatively, this may overlap with [[DarkIsEdgy power over darkness]]) If it is used by a villain, be very careful it's likely they have some very nasty powers, like being able to [[YourSoulIsMine remove people's souls]] from their bodies or [[LiquidAssets draining their life force]]. This [[OurSoulsAreDifferent may or may not]] instantly kill them. People using this power [[PersonalityPowers are also likely to be]] [[TheQuietOne quiet]], creepy, and {{stoic}}. Can be ElementNumberFive.

A subtrope of ElementalPowers. This is the power over spirits, or spiritual energy. People using this power are likely to be able to manipulate this energy, which may or may not equate to magic, depending on the setting. Expect them to be [[ISeeDeadPeople able to speak to the spirits of the dead]], as well as have [[{{Shinigami}} some authority or control]] over them. [[GrandTheftMe Possession]] and MindControl may also be within their powers.

Compare YourSoulIsMine, which involves actually acquiring or stealing souls, and PsychicPowers. Depending on the setting, this may or may not overlap with KiAttacks. Some of the ways to use this power overlap with PowerOfTheVoid, though conceptually they're not that similar. See also OurSoulsAreDifferent.

* ''DemonsSouls'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Pretty much every game mechanic leveling up stats, upgrading equipment, learning new spells and miracles, etc. requires souls of some kind. The game specifically refers to this as "Soul Arts", and unfortunately, overuse of this kind of power also [[AndManGrewProud caused the whole mess]] that you're trying to fix in the first place.

** ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' uses souls as currency, much like ''DemonsSouls''. The souls that are really important to the plot are the Lord Souls. These Souls manifested themselves as flames that appeared before a select few -- Gwyn the Lord of Sunlight, Gravelord Nito the First of the Dead, the Witch of Izalith and her seven Daughters of Chaos, and the oft-forgotten Furtive Pygmy -- and granted them the power to slay the immortal Ancient Dragons and shape the world to their liking. The Pygmy's Lord Soul, the Dark Soul, [[spoiler:was inherited by the player character whose true destiny is to bring an end to Gwyn's Age of Fire and begin the Age of Darkness.]]
** ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' even has spells that [[CastFromMoney cost souls to use]] (they're pathetically weak if you don't have any) and an InfinityPlusOneSword that does more damage the more souls you are holding (it needs ''one million'' to do full damage).
