The slightly obscure Spirit Shaman class from 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.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': The powers of incorporeal beings are based on their "spiritual pressure", or spirit energy, and their ability to control it. This includes Soul Reapers (kido spells, shikai/bankai, resistance to injury) as well as Hollows. Some humans are able to use spiritual pressure/powers as well (Orihime, Chad, Quincies like Uryu, Bounts, etc.). Soul Reapers and Hollows are effectively spirits or ghosts. Humans who possess spiritual pressure, even if they don't have extra spiritual powers from it, can see ghosts and therefore can interact with both Soul Reapers and Hollows as well as normal ghosts.

* ''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.
