* In ''FanFic/{{Webwork}}'', Captain Black's [[NonOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness superiors]] eventually decide to wean out Section 13's reliance on civilian "contractors" (namely, Jackie and company) by creating a new agency called Section 0 designed specifically to deal with magical threats. However, this group currently consists of three agents working out of a repurposed closet space in Section 13's base, so for the time being, they're mostly reliant on the J-Team for help.

* ''Literature/WitchAndWizard'''s New Order takes this a notch further and condemns all ''art'', not just the arcane/mystic ones - although the two persecuted protagonists do have powers. Turns out to be hypocritical, as the [[BigBad]], "The One Who Is the One" uses magic BIG TIME, sometimes to kill children-out of sheer boredom!

* Comicbook/DoctorStrange runs afoul of these from time to time, though in the Marvel Universe they tend to be lone fanatics who've amassed a following. In ''WorldWarHulk'' his primary accuser was a wild-eyed woman who claimed he "dances with the Devil" (not true; they're just acquaintances) and had nearly killed civilians (which was true).

** The 2015 series has the Empirikul, an alien inquisition who view magic as a "corruption" and have some way of counteracting it. They've already killed several off Strange's counterparts in other dimensions, and are coming for him next.

* In the ''{{Deryni}}'' works, the coalition of human spiritual and temporal lords who became regents for King Alroy Haldane installed one of their own as Primate of Gwynedd (at sword's point), passed [[BanOnMagic the Laws of Ramos]], and started persecutions of Deryni that lasted for over two centuries. This was a complete effort, with civil liabilities, [[KillItWithFire harsh punishments]], and a book of anti-Deryni propaganda authored by a cleric and promulgated throughout the kingdom.
* Karse in the ''{{Valdemar}}'' series has a habit of killing magic users when and where it finds them, although as it turns out, if the magic-user is caught young enough they're actually recruited into the priesthood, so they're a hypocritical example.

* In ''{{Dragonlance}}'' groups like the Minotaurs and the Gnomes disdain magic for various reasons, though they (generally) don't actively hunt magic-users down- they just don't do it themselves, and look down on anyone who does.

* [[KnightTemplar Clan Righteous]] in ''The Fires of Merlin'' from TheLostYearsOfMerlin series, who use AntiMagic called Negatus Mysterium, which is found in magic eating creatures called Kreelixes(though it didn't seem to phase the god of evil when he supercharged one, [[FridgeLogic strange]]).

** Strictly speaking, the Empire's religion is opposed to magic and demands that its citizens BurnTheWitch. However, the Empire has a College system to allow wizards to be properly trained and given "Please do not burn by order of the Emperor" letters.

* In ''Literature/ChildrenOfTheBlackSun'', the whole nation of Ricalan (where the trilogy is set) is generally against all kinds of magic, believing it to be [[MagicIsEvil inherently evil]]. People with minor abilities are tolerated if they wear a [[PowerNullifier magic suppressor]], and very limited magic is tolerated for the purpose of detecting such people and constructing the suppressors, but that's it. However, Ricalan is currently being invaded by a country which routinely uses magic in war, causing the Ricalani monarch to hypocritically ally with an EvilSorcerer to counter that advantage. The protagonist, who is potentially even more powerful, later provides a non-evil alternative once people have reconsidered their hostility enough to trust her.
