* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', Fukurou of CP-9 can do this, albeit in an unorthodox fashion. He [[{{Acrofatic}} hurls himself bodily]] at his teammates and receives a deflecting punch or kick. Then he stands up and rattles off their respective power levels.

*In ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'', Hawk is able to sense the power levels of other beings after Merlin gives him Balor's Magical Eye, a magical earring that grants him such abilities. He is also able to divide the power levels into four distinct categories, such as Magic, Strength, Spirit, and Power, all four of which add up to obtain the total power level of an individual. Hawk serves as the main method of conveying power levels to the reader, and while other characters can sense relative power levels, Hawk is the only one able to assign numerical values to them, making his ability useful for raw comparisons.

Suppose [[MagicAndPowers magic, ki,]] or PsychicPowers exist, and that there are people who possess these powers. Naturally, [[PowerLevel how strong]] a given person is with these abilities will be a big factor in the plot, both in the [[SuperWeight ass kicking scale]] and in terms of how characters act and react to each other. But how can writers convey that to viewers? Sure, generally the rule is "show, don't tell", but what if a given character's psychic powers are to pinch shut the carotid artery? Or their SupernaturalMartialArts can crack a planet in two? Having them remind viewers ''"LuckilyMyPowersWillProtectMe"'' gets old fast. And you can't very well have them [[GoodThingYouCanHeal show the power off every time they appear]] so new viewers can get clued in, just imagine what that'd do to the SpecialEffects budget!

So instead writers will give these characters the secondary (or primary) ability to sense each other's power, much like internal StatOVision that is represented with [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience conveniently color-coded]] AuraVision. Typically, TheEmpath or someone with a [[MySignificanceSenseIsTingling Significance Sense]] or SpiderSense will be able to tell the raw PowerLevel of an opponent, what brand of magic they use [[DetectEvil (especially if they're evil)]] and the like. Expect them to intone, ''"TheForce is strong with this one,"'' or a variation when a powerful enemy draws near; especially common is for the sensor to intone ''"[[ReadingsAreOffTheScale Such oppressive evil power!]]"'' before [[FaintingSeer fainting or falling]] to his knees in fear.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Soul Reapers (and other spirit creatures such as Hollows) can detect the level of spiritual pressure (PowerLevel) another creature has. Sufficiently great differences between the sens''ee'' and the sens''or'' can involve side effects like weakness, paralysis, and fear. [[spoiler: There are cases where an individual is so powerful their reiatsu cannot be sensed at all, like Aizen in his final stage of evolution. [[BeyondTheImpossible This baffled everyone.]]]]

* ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'': Yoma, Claymores and Awakened beings can sense each others presence and the amount of yoki. However, some of them can mask their aura to appear far weaker than they are (Riful) or even completely suppress it so only direct contact with their body will reveal that they are anything other than human (Priscilla). The Claymores have a pill with a similar effect. This is the only reason anyone survived the Northern Campaign.

** [[SpiderSense Color of Observation]] allows this as one of its primary effects. Blackbeard has more than once commented on Luffy's strong spirit, and Silvers Rayleigh can accurately detect every beast throughout an entire island (more than five hundred, for the record) that Luffy could not defeat at the time.

* Lampshaded by Tyria Sarkin in ''[[XWingSeries Wraith Squadron]]''. She once says of herself, "The Force is weak in this one." She's Force-Sensitive, the last of the Antarian {{Ranger}}s from Toprawa, but her Force powers are weak, and she feels overwhelmed by what she has to live up to.
