* ComicBook/NickFury, at least as imagined in ''ComicBook/{{Marvel 1602}}''. He's willing to work with Comicbook/DoctorStrange but does not trust him or his art. A little odd, considering he does trust [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Carlos Javier's team]], when he would have no basis for distinguishing between their disparate power sources.

* Fflewddur Fflam of ''PrydainChronicles'' regularly complains about the dangers of magic and every time the protagonists find some artifact, he tries to convince them to throw it away.

* Michael from the ''KnightAndRogueSeries'' has no issue with small magics like magica plants and animals that have their properties enhanced, or Gifts that allow humans to detect magica. Genuine human magic, however, freaks him out. This makes it rather unfortunate that he becomes the only (intelligent) human to be able to wield magic.

** Two filler episodes features the young boy Rick (no DubNameChange this time) who runs only Dragon-type Monster Cards in his deck. Other than them, his only Spell Card is ''Dragon Treasure'', that's why he never one a single duel. Yugi gives Rick the Spell Card ''Heart of the Underdog'' to improve his deck a little bit. When Rick is forced to duel a Duel Computer to save everyone trapped in Kaiba Land, Yugi takes his place and wins the duel with ''Heart of the Underdog''.

* ConanTheBarbarian, at least in his comic incarnation. Though he uses magic swords and the like when forced, Conan is extremely distrustful of sorcery. To be fair, he occupies a universe where, for the most part, MagicIsEvil.

* In the SwordOfTruth, this crops up a ''lot''. Everyone has at least a small spark of the Gift ("Han" in the Swordverse) and could learn to use magic to an extent, but they're fearful and jealous of "born wizards", who have a LOT of the Gift. Played with, in that a large fraction of magic is just being clever and tricking people, and isn't 'magical' per se, but still swells the wizards' reputation.

* Bahrmeul of ''VideoGame/{{Lunarosse}}'' has this attitude since he thinks magic is for wimps. It's one of the reasons for the gigantic rift between him and his son Abel, as Abel is one of the most powerful magic users in the world.



* This is pretty much the point of ''[[http://noroomformagic.keenspot.com/ No Room for Magic]]''. The title character, Magic [=McAllister=], doesn't like living in a fantasy world. Naturally everyone else thinks it's cool.

* The main character of ''Webcomics/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'' hates magic (also ghosts). This is due in part to its mysterious nature, but also stems from a childhood incident involving a ghost wizard. [[spoiler: His grandfather died after casting a spell to contain a ghost wizard trying to curse the young McNinja. As part of the spell's conditions, Doc can't tell anyone his true name or else the ghost wizard will be freed.]]

* It's not uncommon for a role player, GM, or writer in a SharedUniverse to downplay or discourage any sort of magic or even mysyecism, despite operating within a HighFantasy setting.

* The game TalesOfMajEyal includes the town Zigur, comprised almost entirely of violent and obsessive magic haters, hunting down those who either use magic or items powered by magic without regards to personality or history. Semi-justified as one of the biggest disasters of the setting, the Spellblaze, was caused by magic (although not on purpose). While their creed is extreme, several of the settings' worst threats are magic abusers, thus there is at least SOME cause for their existence.

* Valygar Corthala from ''[[BaldursGate Baldur's Gate 2]]'', due to his family history. His parents had come to a tragic end after being corrupted by the power of magic, and his whole line family was cursed because of his infamous EvilSorcerer ancestor.
* ''ReturnToCastleWolfenstein'' - Dr. Strasse dismisses the occult SS division as a bunch of hooey, even though it works. He desperately is trying to advance his SuperSoldier programs to compete.

* The War Hounds, renamed World Eaters, used to have psykers. That changed after the Butcher's Nails were implanted in most of their heads. Turns out driving archaeotech nails into your head doesn't mix well with psychic power. Most of the legion's psykers died painful deaths. One of the signs that the World Eaters were beyond saving was that the rest of the legion ''did not care''. This from a legion that once valued brotherhood above all else. When the World Eaters' Primarch Angron finally led them to damnation by pledging them all to Khorne, one of the first things he did to cement his new allegiance was to slaughter the few psykers who didn't have the Nails. These psykers thought of themselves as War Hounds to the very end.
* The Dark Eldar don't like psykers for a couple of reasons. Psykers can see through the tech-based glamour they use to appear young and beautiful, revealing that the Dark Eldar look exactly like what one would imagine ages old soul sucking abominations would look like. Psykers are also daemon magnets whose very presence makes it easier for daemons to breach the Warp. Since the Dark Eldar live in the Webway, a place that is even easier for daemons to invade than the Materium, and the Dark Eldar are the favorite prey of the Chaos god Slaanesh, anything that makes it easier for the forces of the Warp to attack them cannot be tolerated. The Dark Eldar's natural psychic potential is severely atrophied as a result, to the point that they cannot manipulate wraithbone like the Craftworld Eldar.

* Yog from ''Videogame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic'' hates magic even more than the average Barbarian. While studying magic always bored him, he only really started to hate magic after a fellow student he loved, Vidomina, unwittingly opened a TomeOfEldritchLore and became an evil Necromancer as a result. Ironic since he's a half-genie with a talent for lightning magic similar to Solymr. In his personal ''Shadow of Death'' campaign "Birth of a Barbarian", Yog is still technically a Wizard with the Chain Lightning specialization, but his stat growth is more in line with Barbarians. More importantly, this Campaign specific version of him cannot acquire a spellbook or learn any magic at all (rendering his own specialization completely useless). He apparently lightens up on this attitude later in life, since the "normal" Barbarian Hero version of him can buy a spellbook and learn magic like any other Hero.
