* ''ComicBook/DarkAvengers'': it's heavily implied that The Power Of Love is all that's keeping ComicBook/TheSentry from unleashing [[EnemyWithin the Void]] and raining Biblical plagues down on humanity. Unfortunately his wife, Lindy, is ''terrified'' of him, and when she tries to kill him in the hope of preventing a mad rampage, that's exactly what she gets. Norman Osborn is GenreSavvy enough to recognize that Lindy could set the Sentry off again at any time; [[WrongGenreSavvy unfortunately]] his solution is [[spoiler: to kill her and make it look like a suicide]]. Initially that seems to work, but the next time we see the Sentry he ramps up to a SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum ''very'' quickly and eventually [[spoiler: provokes Thor into killing him]]. The last we see of the Sentry and Lindy [[spoiler: is two empty graves, side by side...]]

** Certain Pokémon will only evolve if the player showers them with love and affection. Most of these evolve with the "happiness" stat (the same one which powers Return), which is built by working with your Pokemon in battle and treating them outside of it. Sylveon does it slightly differently, instead evolving with the "affection" stat that gives in the in-battle bonuses mentioned above, which in practise means petting and playing with your Eevee until it adores you.
** In-universe, [[SuperMode Mega Evolution]] is powered by the bond between Pokemon and trainer, allowing a Pokemon to take a powerful new form temporarily with its trainer's help. Special mention goes to Mega Kangaskhan (which is partially powered by the love between the Kangaskhan and her child), Mega Lopunny (since even getting a Lopunny requires you to bring the happiness stat from 0 to over 200), and Mega Rayquaza (the most powerful Mega Evolution and the only one powered by ''divine'' love).

* In ''Videogame/SouthParkTheFracturedButWhole'', one of the sidequests involves helping Tweek and Craig fix their relationship, which turns their LimitBreak into "Eros Eruption", in which they hold hands and overwhelm their enemies with their love while "Let's Fighting Love" plays in the background. Afterwards, their unlockable character sheets state list both of their power sources as "Love".

* From ''ComicBook/NinjaHighSchool'' Jeremy uses this to bring back his friend, CuteWitch turned dark, Mimi. (The story's also a bit of a homage to [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Dark Phoenix]] so take that as you will)

* In Videogame/Disgaea5, the literal driving force behind the secret technique Macrocosm, the strongest attack in the universe, is caring about other people and wanting to help them. You can, quite literally, blast the evil out of a target by properly hitting them with this technique, and the attack animation is freaking brutal in execution. [[spoiler:This is ultimately what saves Liezerota]].
** Seraphina's Balor Gaze allows her to control any male target, including her father, by simply using it within their vicinity, and no matter what the target is unable to resist her demands and praises her as a goddess... except Killia, who is completely immune to it because he loves Liezerota so much, his heart cannot be affected. This extends to his game unit, if you make a custom map with Seraphina as the enemy, and she uses Balor Gaze or True Brionic Gaze, Killia is immune no matter his evilities.
** Every main character in Disgaea 5 basically gets an upgraded Overload by caring about others. This is especially true for Red Magnus who can use Super Universe by simply learning to care about the health and safety of his servants, or Usalia, who straight up gains a SuperPoweredEvilSide from learning to face her fear instead of crying.

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Universe 2 is all about love. It shouldn't be surprising since their universe is a ShoutOut/parody of the MagicalGirl genre and ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' as well. Their big (figurative and literal) hero, Ribrianne, is all about this as well. However, her version of love is superficial and mostly self centered, and this ends up being her HoistByHerOwnPetard moment: [[spoiler:she utterly discards Android #18's love for Krillin because of his looks, but it's Krillin who ends up giving #18 the strength to break free and defeat Ribrianne. 18 and Krillin's genuine unselfish love is the real definition of the Power of Love.]]
