* ''Series/AgentsOfShield'': Simmons initially thinks that Will's stories of "It" and the Monolith planet having "moods" are just symptoms of his long isolation and that there is a scientific explanation. When she sees "It" for herself, and that a gorge suddnely became much wider when they needed to cross it, she decides otherwise.

* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' has perhaps the most unique example of this, as, in the setting, there is no real distinction between "magic" and "science". The setting is based on [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve Consensual Reality]] ("The world is only as it is because we believe it is"). Basically, only gifted individuals (that the game calls "awakened") can truly work outside the CURRENT laws of physics. An Awakened today would be the only one to be able to summon a dragon, because dragons break the rules of our world but everyone could use a computer. On the other side, an Awakened in the Middle Ages would be the only one to be able to build a mechanical difference engine, but everyone of course knows that dragons exist. Yes, in the Middle Ages, dragons were "science" and computers were "magic". In short, not only the Wizard and the Scientist keep doing in each other, but they are (metaphorically) the same person, who routinely changes his clothes from "cloak and wizard hat" to "glasses and lab coat" and vice versa in order to do in himself. [[spoiler: The most accepted ending to the metaplot reveals that humanity AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence since the Wizard and the Scientist really were one and the same, pointlessly fighting.]]

* ''Film/TheAvengers'': Tony suggests that the Hulk (A.K.A "The Other Guy") is not triggered by Bruce's heart rate ''per se'', but that the Hulk deliberately manifests to protect Bruce in dangerous situations. Thus, it is an ally to be embraced instead of a monster to be caged. The events of the movie support this view. [[spoiler: Bruce tells TheTeam that Hulk interrupted his suicide attempt and later it emerges in the final battle because Bruce told it to.]]

* In ''LightNovel/Durarara!!'', [[TheBerserker Shizuo]] delivers a rather prompt one in regards to how he developed his SuperStrength:
--> Shizuo: I came back stronger every time. Shinra says... you know what?! Screw what Shinra says! [[HandWave I CAME BACK STRONGER EVERY TIME!]]

*'''Series/DoctorWho'': In the Series 9 episode "Under the Lake", the Doctor denounces "ghosts" as nonsense. Then he changes his mind and says that yes, they really are the souls of dead people. They're not something scientific like Auton duplicates, flesh avatar clones or digital copies "floating about the Nethersphere". He's ecstatic to meet a "proper ghost".

* ''Series/BattlestarGalactica2003'' began as hard science fiction and slowly acquired more and more religious/fantastic elements: precognition, incorporeal beings, restoration of destroyed objects and resurrection from the dead. [[spoiler: The series ended with the characters, at least, putting the events of the series down to divine intervention,]] although strictly speaking the viewer is left to make up his own mind.

* As seen in ''Film/OzTheGreatAndPowerful'' a kind of spiritual prequel to ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'', Oz is a real place. Dorothy just saw all the parallels between people she met in Oz and people she knew earlier and ''assumed'' it was a dream.
