* ''BreakfastOfTheGods'': Jarvis's final spell is in decent Latin, except for one word in English. Saying what the spell is would be a ''huge'' spoiler for the whole work.

* Latin phrases are used as some of the chapter titles in ''[[Fanfic/ElementalChessTrilogy Flowers of Antimony]]''. This is justified, in that they are actual [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist alchemical terms]] and the entire series makes use of {{Terminology Title}}s.

* JimButcher likes Latin, apparently. ''Literature/CodexAlera'' is heavily sprinkled with Gratuitous Latin thanks to its cast mostly consisting of "magical Romans." Perhaps most notably, Aleran names all tend to mean something, be it [[NonIndicativeName ironic]] ([[NamesToTrustImmediately Fidelias]] the WildCard with ChronicBackstabbingDisorder) or [[MeaningfulName appropriate]] ([[GreenEyedMonster Invidia]] the [[LadyMacbeth evil]], overly-ambitious bitch).

* Many of the magic spells used on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' happen to be in Latin. Evidently one of the more challenging things for AlysonHannigan was memorizing all of the Latin that the writers kept flinging at her. In the final season, Willow stops halfway through a spell and shouts "''Screw it! I suck at Latin, OK?!'' and proceeds to make the spell work in ''English'' by pure [[{{Pun}} force of will]]. Andrew also displays a knowledge of Latin several times in the show and comics.

** There's also the recurring special attack Ars Arcanum, which simply means (loosely) "Secret Technique". In the Japanese version, it's known as "Last Arcanum" (lit. Last Secret), which combines this trope with GratuitousEnglish.
** Also from Birth By Sleep is Ars Solum (lit. "Solo Technique"; known as "Solo Arcanum"[[note]]Which literally means "Solo Secret".[[/note]] in the Japanese version), a command that only Terra can use.
