* ''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.

* 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.

*** 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.
