* In the ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' game's alt-history, scientists in the earliest days of the Awakening spent a lot of time arguing about weird phenomena like [=UGE=] and the discovery of the century ferret, devising non-magical hypotheses for what the hell was going on. It took the emergence of Great Dragons, and Dunkelzahn's appearances on live television, for this trope to nip their rationales in the bud.

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' has an odd progression. At first, Tedd was a TeenGenius who invented a TransformationRay gun. Then it was retconned to be [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum Alien Technology]], which was then retconned to be {{Magitek}}, which was then retconned to be full-on magic [[spoiler: only possible due to the intervention of immortal beings in the area]]. "Take THAT Science Fiction!"

* ''Anime/FinalFantasyTheSpiritsWithin'' bounces back and forth between this and DoingInTheWizard in its backstory, but in the end this wins out. Bonus points for it being the crazy scientist who's theory does in the science. The invisible "aliens" turn out to be ghosts from a long dead world accompanied by a fragment of their planet's Life Force, and Earth's Gaia spirit turns out to also be real.

* ''Comicbook/BlueBeetle'' was originally a case of DoingInTheWizard; in the Dan Garrett stories, it was magic, and Jaime Reyes ''assumes'' it's magic for a while, but then learns that it's alien technology tampered with by magic (or something). As of Comicbook/DCRebirth, however, they're flip-flopped again, and now it's a magical artifact that ''tricked'' Jaime into thinking that it's magic.

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