* ''AsurasWrath''s Deities gain the power for their weapons this way, either through prayer or [[spoiler: harvesting human souls by killing them. The Karma Fortress has [[ReadingsAreOffTheScale 7 TRILLION Souls]] powering it up.]]

* Soulfire in TheDresdenFiles. Generally a power of angels, Soulfire draws on the soul of the user to form a foundation that strengthens his magic, especially constructive magic. Fallen Angels can grant Hellfire, which also turbocharges magic, but is especially good with the destructive spells.

* ''TabletopGames/MagicTheGathering'' splits the field between White and Black magic. The White variant tends to be benevolent, summoning phantom guardians and offering protection, while Black favors malevolent spirits and corrupting, enslaving, or even consuming souls. Naturally, characters and factions that [[YinYangBomb use both]] tend to emphasize this power.

* Gul'dan's powers in ''Film/WarCraft2016'' center around manipulation of souls - he can remove souls, take a soul of one thing and put it in other, giving the latter life, or use souls as pure fuel to power his spells.

* The slightly obscure Spirit Shaman class from ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 3.5 is an unusual good-to-neutral take on this trope. The class learns to banish and manipulate spiritual entities such as ghosts and elementals, perform spell-like KiManipulation, and eventually even to [[HowDareYouDieOnMe shove souls back into their bodies]] to revive people.

** 3.5's ''slightly'' less obscure Incarnum concept is this in a general sort of sense -- incarnum is soul energy, and the incarnum-using classes get to shape it in various ways, but as their methods essentially just borrow free-flowing soul energy from the immensity around in reality, they can't actually do anything special with ''specific'' souls.

* 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.]]
