** This literally the source of all Sanji's strength as his love for beatiful ladies (usually Nami) gives him power to run a mile, survive brutal beatings, bolts of lighting and in some situations fly. Love is also ties into Sanji's [[PlayingWithFire Diable Jamble]] as Oda explains ''While Sanji's flames burn hot, his heart burns hotter''.

* ''ComicBook/Elfquest'' has this as a recurring theme. It shows itself through all dealings with BugBad Winnowill, who tries to avoid this at all costs, and stated almost verbatim by all-loving High One Timmain, who almost states that this central trope keeps the Palace in balance.

* ''Fanfic/TheQueensConsort'': It was light magic that gave Elsa amnesia, so it stands to reason that light magic can undo it, and what is more bright and pure than love? The trope is practically stated by name.

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', when the power of love [[spoiler:prevented the protagonist from getting powerful enough to defeat evil, temporarily got him killed, and had the greatest city of the world conquered by the bad guys. Then again, a [[OlderAndWiser wise old guy]] told Aang he made a good choice, and seeing as Aang won in the end, it probably paid off.]]

* ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'' features an unusual example where it's the BigBad who benefits from this. [[spoiler:At the end of the fifth volume, the White Queen is next to the love of her life, Kyousuke. An army of Unexplored-Class Materials - beings more powerful than gods, whose very nature is to seal the Queen's power - is approaching with the intention of killing her, and Kyousuke would undoubtedly be killed in the crossfire. But the Queen manages to defeat them all, while ensuring that not a single attack hits Kyousuke.]]

* ''Manga/BakaAndTestSummonTheBeasts'': Spoofed. The main boys of Class F each try [[LethalChef Mizuki Himeji's cooking]], only to suddenly collapse in horrible pain. Of course, they can't bring themselves to tell her how bad her cooking really is, so Yoshii tries to convince himself with Yuuji's help that his love for Himeji is the greatest spice of all. Then he takes a bite and promptly collapses.
-->'''Yuuji:''' ''[still on the ground]'' Love doesn't protect against poison. Check.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' mythology, this trope falls under the sphere of Mara, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedric Divine]] Goddess of Love. She is a LoveGoddess focusing more on the familial, matrimonial, and fertily aspects of love (compared to Dibella, the Goddess of Beauty, who focuses more on the sexual and carnal aspects of it). She gave the gift of love to mortals and her teachings indicate that it can change their destiny. Also covers LoveRedeems, as her teachings state "those who offer their love to the Divines will never be forsaken."

Contrast with ThePowerOfHate. Occasionally classified as one of the ElementalPowers. Not to be confused with [[Fanfic/ThePowerOfLove the fanfic]].
