* This is essentially the argument of the witches in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' - they don't have to explain how the murders were committed because they can just say "the culprit used magic".

* In the 3D Background Explanations Corner of the ''MahouSenseiNegima'' volumes, whenever KenAkamatsu notes that something is off, like how the external shots of [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Eva's]] home doesn't match the internal shots, he'd mention with his tongue firmly in cheek that it's probably due to magic screwing up its physical dimensions or something similar.

Added DiffLines:

* The dwarf beech, or fagus sylvatica var. tortuosa, a beech species that grows in twisted shapes, was called "witch wood", as people believed witches to be responsible for the unusual shape of the trees. According to the Wikipedia article of 06.03.2016, the shape is due to genetics, though previously there was some speculation about earth radiation or similar factors of the dwarf beech's place of origin causing the crooked growth.

* This trope is in full effect in [[ZerothLawOfTropeExamples Shakespeare's]] final play: ''Theatre/TheTempest''. The plot begins with [[EccentricMentor Prospero]]; a wizard, conjuring a storm which bring most of the other characters to his (Prospero's) island. From there on, nearly every plot development stems from some further act of magic on the wizard's behalf. Some LampshadeHanging also occurs, as the script repeatedly comments on magic being the solution to inconsistencies in the plot.

Added DiffLines:

* Used and lampshaded in ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonVsAceAttorney. The game is set in Labyrinthia, where everything that seems out of ordinary at trials the witness just pin it on "the witch did it", even though there are clear inconsistencies inside that world's use of magic rules. Being inspired in real medieval-era witch trials, that was probably the real way of thinking back then.

* Used in [[http://www.sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/080308 this]] ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' (out of continuity) strip parodying Harry Potter to explain why [[TimeMachine Time-Turners]] can no longer be used for a quick solution to everything.

** "ActuallyADoomBot" is often used to explain any SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom story a writer does not like. Someone even had the theory that we have NEVER seen the real Doom. It's been [[TurtlesAllTheWayDown ALL Doombots all along]]!
