* Havel The Rock from ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'', an old battlefield compatriot of Lord Gwyn, was the sworn enemy of Seath the Scaleless. He despised magic, and made certain to devise means of counteraction. He went so far to create the Great Magic Barrier miracle to shield himself from magic.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Varys, ever since he was ritually castrated and left to die by a sorcerer as a boy. He even admits to staunchly opposing Stannis because of his association with the magical priestess Melisandre.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Varys, ever since he was ritually castrated and left to die by a sorcerer as a boy. In his experience, magic practitioners are typically associated with pain, torture and death. He even admits to staunchly opposing Stannis because of his association with the magical priestess Melisandre. However, he does make an exception for dragons, eventually.

** Aunt Petunia, after being told she couldn't go to Hogwarts like her sister Lily, decided that all wizards and witches were "freaks" - an attitude she extended to her orphaned nephew (who didn't even know he ''was'' a wizard) more than a decade later.

** Aunt Petunia, after being told she couldn't go to Hogwarts like her sister Lily, decided that all wizards and witches were "freaks" - an attitude she extended to her orphaned nephew (who didn't even know he ''was'' a wizard) more than a decade later. Not surprisingly, she's married to a man who hates magic at least as much, and they and their son go into a FreakOut anytime anything magical happens.


Added DiffLines:

** The Muggle Prime Minister isn't fond of his dealings with the magical world either, which is understandable as pretty much every visit by the Minister for Magic means that something really bad is happening.

* ''Manga/NectarOfDharani'': The dwarves find magic, with its inconsistent rules and restrictions, to be annoying at best.

** On the other side of the Heresy, the Death Guard were in part lured to Horus's side by Mortarion's mistrust of psykers. Given that the side Mortarion joined a) has a god devoted to magic, and b) is the same one that the Thousand Sons ended up on, we can probably scratch up a win for universal irony there.

Even after their conversion, Mortarion's hatred is strong enough that sorcerers are still looked down upon amongst the Death Guard, and the few amongst them who have such powers have low standing.

* Sam Vimes from the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' City Watch novels doesn't trust magic enough to use it in his investigations, although he does consider supernatural creatures and forensic alchemists quite useful.
--> '''Vimes:''' You can't ask questions, [[AWizardDidIt it's magic]]. It doesn't explain anything, it's magic. You don't know where it comes from, it's magic. That's what I don't like about magic, it does everything by magic!
--> '''Carrot:''' That's the significant factor, sir.

** [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]], as demonstrated [[http://knightinironarmor.tumblr.com/post/145814094985 here.]]]] Though in one story in which he has to wield a magical Excalibur in the future, he does concede to himself that maybe - ''just'' maybe - magic does have its good points.

** Ironically, he quite likes ''wizards''. This is because they keep themselves to themselves and even when they cause trouble, it's not trouble that makes him fill out any paperwork. Wizards are actually known for doing as ''little'' magic as possible, so that's another part of it.

** About the only one who ''doesn't'' have this problem is ComicBook/BlackPanther, who has a [=PhD=] in physics and superhuman abilities he owes to his nation's Panther God. His ability to combine science and mysticism has let him take down Mephisto.
