* Potions in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' are made through an alchemy minigame that can be played and replayed to make your character more effective and efficient at it. Potions are phenomenally useful and having a good alchemist is essential to many a well-run [[GamingClan faction]].

* ''VideoGame/GemsOfWar'': The city of Adana is home to a lot of alchemists, some of whom fight you; their special ability, appropriately, transmutes one colour of gem into another and generates gold.

*** The alchemy of [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Amestris]] uses the movement of the tectonic plates and geothermal energy.

to:

*** The alchemy of [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Amestris]] supposedly uses the movement of the tectonic plates and geothermal energy.energy. In reality, while the geothermal energy does exist, Amestrian alchemy is actually powered by energy generated by human souls that were extracted from the entire population of the country of Xerxes. [[BigBad Father]], who taught alchemy to Amestris, is the source of the energy powering it and he can deprive Amestrian alchemists access to that energy, effectively turning off their alchemy.



*** The alchemy of [[AndManGrewProud Xerxes]], an ancient city from before the founding of Amestris and Xing, was the precursor to Amestrian alchemy and Xingese alkahestry. Its power source is never fully explained, but given that [[spoiler:Hoenheim]] was the one who taught Xing alkahestry, it is most likely related to that. Since [[spoiler:[[BigBad Father]]]] was the one who taught alchemy to Amestris, and [[spoiler:he intentionally made it so that he could "turn off" alchemists' access to the tectonic energy at will]], it's most likely a corrupted version of Xerxes alchemy.

* Harry uses alchemy occasionally in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', usually when his regular magic isn't enough (which happens rarer and rarer as the series progresses). Making a potion involves eight ingredients; a base, and something to stand in for each of the five senses, mind and spirit. Then he performs a spell which makes the mess a potion.

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. In this universe, turning rocks into gold is a simple (albeit illegal, [[{{UsefulNotes/Economics}} due to the risk of shattering the economy from inflation]]) alchemic procedure, but the Philosopher's Stone, and immortality along with it, is still being sought. Interestingly, they use the scientific elements, the ones listed in our real-world periodic table, rather than the four classical elements of earth, water, wind, and fire.

* In WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fanfic Fanfic/HisRecipeForLove, one big advantage the Cupcake Bakers have over their [[AssholeVictim bandit]] victims is that they are alchemists, and arm themselves in advance with a variety of bombs and alchemical potions.
* In the LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero fanfiction,''Fanfic/TheSteepPathAhead'', Alchemy is responsible for a [[SwarmOfRats swarm of]] [[RodentsOfUnusualSize giant rats]], a variety of [[ManEatingPlant giant plants]], a GiantSpider colony, and possibly the first Orcs in the setting. At this point, Saito hates being involved with Alchemists because he's had to put down so many of their creations in his time as an Adventurer.

* In ''Franchise/StarWars'', there exists [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Sith_Alchemy Sith Alchemy]], a school of TheDarkSide that combines the Force teachings of the Dark Jedi with ancient Sith Sorcery. It involves transmutation of weapons and creatures, as well as [[{{Necromancer}} necromancy]] and (as mastered by Darth Plagueis) the ability to create life. It is considered by the Jedi to be the ultimate perversion of [[SentientCosmicForce The Force]].

* In ''VideoGame/Darklands'', there are no magical spells in the game [[spoiler: not counting demons, or the Black Magic spells that High Witches can use]], but characters can buy and trade alchemical recipes, obtain ingredients, and brew many, many potions. Alchemical potions can have many effects, from buffing allies to creating explosions, so an alchemist character is essentially a stand-in for the "wizard" archetype.
