* Sealeen of ''Webcomic/TwoKinds'' has a form of alchemy. Since she has little magic skill, she can bottle spells as potions that the throws during battle to activate, so that spells that would otherwise take her hours to gather enough energy for can be used at a moments notice.

Added DiffLines:

* Downplayed in ''Literature/VoidDomain'', where alchemical potions can produce a broad variety of effects, but function by reacting with their users' innate magic; for {{Muggles}}, they're ineffective at best and toxic at worst.

*** 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 Hoenheim was the one who taught Xing alkahestry, it is most likely related to that.

* ''Anime/WolfsRain'' has a form of magic called alchemy that does a whole lot of strange things: The titular wolves use it to project human illusions for disguise, Cheza was created from mixing flower and human DNA, and the nobility use a form of HermeticMagic that draws on [[MagicalGeometry transmutation circles.]]

* In the ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' special ''It's Magic, Charlie Brown'', the book of magic that Snoopy finds (at the public library, no less) has a chapter on alchemy, and he wears a wizard's outfit while studying it. (But only manages to blow up his lab doing so.)

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. In this universe, turning rocks into gold is a simple alchemic procedure, (albeit an illegal one, [[{{UsefulNotes/Economics}} due to the risk of shattering the economy from inflation]],) 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.
