* In JohnCWright's ''Literature/ChroniclesOfChaos'', this is one technique of FunctionalMagic, where the character can make true what he wants to be true. Its weakness is that he really has to want it; if you do not actually feel the malice necessary, you can not curse someone, for instance.

* Similar to the Doctor Thirteen example mentioned above, one power available to players in ''{{GURPS}} IOU'' is the advantage Mundanity. Magic and super-science fails to work in a Mundane's presence, and at the higher levels monsters, aliens and assorted other non-normal entities actually change to have mundane explanations (a monster turns into someone wearing a monster costume, the alien invasion turns into a movie set) until the character leaves the area.

*** The machine spirits seen in some advanced Imperial technologies, like Land Raider tanks, Titans, and some of the [[Literature/HorusHeresy older]] Legio Cybernetica robots, are clearly described as something akin to an artificial intelligence (although they get around the Imperium's AI ban by [[LoopholeAbuse not being fully sentient]], and/or [[OrganicTechnology not being entirely mechanical]]). In simpler cases, it's hard to say if the machine has a literal spirit, or if that's just the Mechanicus' way of handwaving quirks that could be attributed to probability, like a gun jamming slightly more often than others of its type.

*** In the more advanced cases, like Land Raider tanks and Imperial Titans, the machine spirit is sometimes described as an artificial intelligence of sorts. In other cases (especially for machines without on-board electronics), it's hard to say if it's a literal spirit, or the Mechanicus' way of handwaving quirks that could be attributed to probability, like a gun jamming three percent more often than others of its type.
