* In ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'', you have to have a gemstone of the appropriate type to perform Soulcasting. So if you want to turn someone into glass, you'd need a diamond. To turn him to stone, you need topaz. Notably, this even applies to Radiant Soulcasting, despite Radiant powers not usually having material components.

* Taken to a rather [[BlackComedy dark]] extreme in ''FriendshipIsWitchcraft'' with "Pinkie's Brew"; the "eye of a Newt" turns out to be from the foal Newt Pippington British-hooves.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' episode "Spell-Bound" (which was, incidentally, the first half-hour episode starring Pinky and the Brain exclusively) the first four ingredients for Brain's “Take Over the World Spell” are six lizard legs, two eyes of newt, two hedgehog spleens, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking one half-eaten gingerbread cookie that’s been left on the counter overnight.]] (Getting the final ingredient, a red dragon toenail clipping, is the main plot.)

** In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3e2pGHyG8A this short]], Yakko provides his own, uh, ''unique'' interpretation of the original witches recipe, provided for viewers who - like himself and the three characters depicting the witches - have ''no'' idea what it means.

* On ''Series/GoodEats'', Alton explains how the image of pasta sauce simmering on the stove (stirred lovingly by a mom or [[GrannyClassic grandma]]) can be a reminder of home and hearth for some...and for others, it brings to mind images of witches and cauldrons. The witch throws in snakes, spiders, etc., while the loving grandmother throws in spices, in an EscalatingWar, until Alton informs both women that he cooks alone.

** 5th edition allows magic users to ignore non-valuable material components, either by using a component pouch (which is assumed to contain the various required components) or a spellcasting focus such as a magic wand or a holy symbol.

* Similarly, material components, while not ''needed'' for most spells in ''WarhammerFantasyRoleplay'', did provide a (generally trivial but) much appreciated bonus to your spellcasting attempt.

* In ''Urban Arcana'', the modern day DungeonPunk variant for D20Modern, a special variant of spellcasting called "Incantations" are available. These Incantations are lengthy yet powerful procedures that require materials appropriate to the spell in question. For instance, demon summoning would likely require a virgin sacrifice and an obsidian knife, whereas the consecration of a building would require holy water and a recitation of prayer.

** When it comes to magical ingredients, wizards can be divided into the ones who perform the Rite of [=AshkEnte=] with two bits of wood and a fresh egg, or the ones who know you ''can'' do that, but it's not ''proper'' magic unless you're using lots of skulls, ram's horns and dribbly candles.
