* The Citadel from ''Fanfic/TheDifferenceOneManCanMake'' is so opposed to sorcery they decide to send assassins after the one man able to bring it back to Westeros. They also vote for killing his children, on the chance of them inheriting their father's powers.

* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'': Gigan, a cyborg {{Kaiju}}, is very uncomfortable around magic. His scanners cannot make heads or tales of it. When his ability to detect energy is compared to scrying, he becomes offended and says at least his abilities follow the laws of physics and make sense.
* ''Fanfic/TheBridgeHumanitysStand'':
** Zilla is uncomfortable around magic. Though he respects magical beings like Mothra and Gamera, magic doesn't make much sense to him and he remarks that his abilities at least make sense.
** Several members of the Global Defense Force like Captain Gordon and Stacker Pentecost constantly remark that they don't trust magic.

* The second anime adaptation of ''Manga/YuGiOh'' ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has two examples:



* Noboru Gongenzaka from ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' has no Spell or Trap Cards in his deck because his Superheavy Samurai monsters can only use their effects when he has no Spell or Trap Cards in his graveyard, that's why he does not look for Action Cards. Unlike the other two examples above, Gongenzaka's deck works well. However, to balance this out, his Synchro Monster ''Superheavy Samurai Warlord Susanowo'' allows him to activate Spell Cards from his opponent's graveyard.

He later gains ''Superheavy Samurai Steam Fiend Tetsudo'o'', which allows him to Banish Spells and Traps from his graveyard, allowing him to use them without hampering his strategy.

Compare MagicIsEvil (the magic hater may consider it to be), AntimagicalFaction (where a whole society feels this way), and BanOnMagic.

* A grunt in ComicBook/DungeonTwilight who gets his own DayInTheLimelight watches a bar fight between sorcerers with disdain. It's less that he hates magic and more that throwing spells at each other from a distance doesn't have the same feeling than hacking and slashing. He gleefully approves of shaman slitting a little boy's throat solely because it's something he recognizes the method.

** [[ComicBook/XMen Hank McCoy]] the ''X-Men: Endangered Species'' short series are about him trying -[[FailureIsTheOnlyOption and failing]]- to to understand the way ComicBook/{{ScarletWitch}} spell works and revert it. He even goes on a rant about for all the weird magic stuff he found he always hoped SufficientlyAnalyzedMagic was on effect. That the effect of said spell were the mutant population being reduced tho 198 doesn't hurt his case.

** The Space Wolves had such a deep hatred of sorcery that they needed little excuse to attack the psychically-gifted Thousand Sons during the Literature/HorusHeresy. The Wolves of Fenris ''do'' [[{{Hypocrite}} have psykers, called Rune Priests]], but they [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial insist that they practice a sort of natural shamanism]] [[MagicByAnyOtherName that is totally different from the witchcraft they so despise]].

** Played with; the muggles can be just as effective at ruining someone's day as any wizard or fae, and getting mortals involved in a magical conflict is seen as akin to whipping out nukes. It says something about the Dresdenverse where ''everyone'' is scared of ''everyone'', for entirely valid reasons.
