* The Blood of the Fold in Terry Goodkind's ''SwordOfTruth'' is a classical example ([[{{Hypocrite}} though its leader makes use of his sister's magic against other users']]), while the Imperial Order from the [[ExpansionPackWorld Old World]] is a hypocritical example. Ultra-powerful wizards and various magical weapons are used for the Order's cause of Magic Is Bad (one wizard in the Order even says when questioned on his hypocrisy that yes, eventually he will be killed too, after they succeed in destroying all magic). At the same time, the Order's leaders are conferring {{Immortality}} upon themselves with it.

Added DiffLines:

* The Order in ''Literature/{{Runemarks}}'' is devoted to the elimination of the Firefolk (read: demons, gods, people and animals born with glam). They are type 2 on the description above, since the 'Good Book' lists cantrips that Magisters are allowed to use, [[spoiler: and their deity is actually Mimir]]

* If mutant powers qualify as "magic," these guys show up as ComicBook/{{X-Men}} villains every other week. Perhaps the most notorious of such groups is the anti-mutant hate group "Friends of Humanity."

* 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).
