This is often used by religious fundamentalists against any story where the powers are explicitly referred to as "magic". The basis of the argument is that, in real life, MagicIsEvil (because -- according to beliefs of some religious people -- it is something you can only use if you make a DealWithTheDevil), so naturally all stories which feature magic are meant to indoctrinate readers into getting involved with actual witchcraft (even if the in-universe magic has nothing to do with real-life occult beliefs.)

** Some books actually ''do'' include ceremonial and RitualMagic information. The ''entire'' Goetia (Lesser Key of Solomon) made it into ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' in 1986. Minus the sigils, fortunately.

** This has caused other game companies (like ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' publisher Palladium Books) to place a disclaimer in all their books stating that their books [[ThisIsAWorkOfFiction are works of fiction]] and they don't condone the supernatural or occultism.

** Not to mention one blogger that accused the show of being racist (due to the two dark-colored pony guards at the foot of Celestia's throne) and Rainbow Dash of being a lesbian (simply because of her mane and [[LesbianJock her love of athletics]]), and saying that books won't get you anywhere in life and you need authority figures to tell you how to be happy (completely ignoring the fact that Twilight Sparkle's book knowledge more often than not gives vital information to the characters). After reading it, one gets the impression that the author did not watch past the end of the opening credits. Fortunately, Lauren found out about the blog post and fired back with one that addressed every concern and even criticized the original poster.

This actually ended piquing people's interests, which helped make the show as popular as it is now.

Expect a lot of sloppy research (especially YouFailLogicForever), DanBrowned, InsaneTrollLogic, CowboyBebopAtHisComputer, and CriticalResearchFailure among these people (many of whom believe that HollywoodSatanism is TruthInTelevision).

** There were actually quite a few kids that started getting into the occult after ''Harry Potter'' got really popular, but if anything the parents were to blame rather than the books. And anyone who actually knows anything about occultism quickly realizes that ''Harry Potter'' magic is a useless guide anyways.

* American Sign Language. Because some of the signs use hand shapes that look like the "devil's horns" sign.

* The American Sign Language. Because Language is believed by some of to be Satanic because the signs use hand shapes that look like [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ILY_sign "I Love You" sign]] resembles the "devil's horns" sign.sign. Never mind that 1) the "devil's horns" sign is different from the ILY sign (it has the thumb towards the palm, rather than outstretched,) and 2) the sign isn't even an "official" part of the language, just a bit of slang made up by the ASL community themselves as a combination of the letters I, L and Y, so it has nothing to do with any supposed Satanic/masonic/Zionist etc. plot by the creators of ASL.

* ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''; some groups got upset at the writers of this movie because Loki called Black Widow a "mewling quim", which is an archaic British word for a [[CountyMatters certain female body part]]. That's right, they got angry because the ''bad guy'' of the movie (who you are ''not'' supposed to admire or emulate) used a chauvinistic term.
