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

* {{Inverted|Trope}} in Terry Mancour's ''Literature/TheSpellmongerSeries'', in that the Royal Censorate of Magic is itself run by mages, and they of ban all magic, instead they only make studying all but a few avenues of magical study legal to practice, and they also hunt down magi who are not officially registered as part of their system.

* In ''Literature/TheTraitorSonCycle'', the clergy under the command of the Patriarch of Rhum is convinced that to do magic is to pact with the devil, and when they get their hands on Alba, they excommunicate the local order of {{Magic Knight}}s and try to have the "witch" Queen burned at stake. The kicker being, of course, that the Patriarch of Rhum and his lackey, the archbishop of Alba, are (independenly) making deals with two of this world's most Satan-like figures.

* The thinly-veiled Church of the One God in works of V. Ivashchenko is most often of the "divine vs. arcane" variety.

** Tear is an odd variation- [[FunctionalMagic channeling]] is illegal in Tear, but channelers aren't actively hunted so long as they keep it to themselves, and the Tairens actually send ''more'' [[GenderRestrictedAbility daughters]] to [[WizardingSchool the White Tower]] than anyone, if only because it's the handiest way to quietly get rid of a channeling relative.
* ''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!

* In ''Literature/BornWicked'', the Brotherhood, who is in charge of everything, is anti-magic. They oppress women, and their strongest enemy are female witches, so they kill them wherever they can.

** 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.

* In the ''Literature/DresdenFiles'', Michael, a Christian, is quite fond of giving Harry Dresden(a wise-cracking wizard and the titular character) what Harry calls the "Cast aside your dark powers before they consume you" speech. Apparently the Church is against magic in general whenever their God's not involved. This is supposedly due to a mistranslation from the Latin the Bible was originally written in- from hating Warlocks (black magic users), to hating all magic users. But they're pretty lax on it these days and Michael himself even more so due to a close wizard friend (Harry) and [[spoiler:his wife (who is a lapsed magic user) and his daughter is a ''very'' powerful wizard.]]

** 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.

They're not very good at their job, though, seeing how they unknowingly have [[spoiler:a Cursewitch]] among their clergy.

* ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'' has King Radovid of Redania, who is violently opposed to magic - and the Lodge of Sorceresses in particular - and he brutally tortures and executes any and all magic users he can lay his hands on. This all stems from his boyhood, when his father King Vizimir II was assassinated by his sorceress advisor [[spoiler: Philippa Eilhart]], who then proceeded to assume the regency of Redania and domineer and humiliate young Radovid until he reached maturity. He's been taking revenge on mages ever since.
