* Galatea from ''{{Claymore}}'' can manipulate flows of yoki (demonic energy) around her just by thinking about it. Most of her encounters with powered enemies therefore boil down to calmly walking past them while redirecting each their hit to miss her with her mind.

* Magic in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' is emotion shaped and directed by will, but wizards almost always use (made-up) incantations to help focus their minds, almost like mnemonics. When Harry casts a spell mentally, he's left with a headache and a wicked case of synaesthesia. In ''Changes'', he [[summons the faerie Queen Mab]] just by imagining the ritual in perfect detail.

* Belgarath and assorted fellow sorcerers in the [[Literature/TheBelgariad Belgariad/Mallorean]] books use the Will and the Word. Belgarath says he's fairly sure you don't really need the Word, if your Will is strong enough [[spoiler: and given that Poledra doesn't seem to need the Word at all, he's probably right.]]

* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}''. Mages can cast spells just by concentrating on doing so. It's possible for a mage to voluntarily use gestures or speech as a centering technique or be forced to do so because of a geas.

* Diclonii in ''ElfenLied'' possess several pairs of invisible hands called "vectors" that can pass through material objects but cut human flesh with ease. Their captors keep them inside steel spheres just thick enough for their vectors not to reach the outside.

* Most activatable powers in ''{{Champions}}'' and ''{{GURPS}} Supers'' are this by definition unless the character's creator gives them a disadvantage that requires some special activation technique. (Most powers affecting things beyond the character's own body will still require some appropriate sense to ''aim'' properly -- so being blindfolded can still be an issue --, just not to ''activate'' in the first place.)
* In early editions of ''DungeonsAndDragons'', innate creature spell powers and psionics were usually activated "at will" unless specifically described otherwise.
