** 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.

* There's a Halloween episode of ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' that involves Homestar collecting a variety of ingredients for a "witch's brew." Depending upon the choices of the viewer/player, these can involve stank water, essence of doo doo meringue, and powdered Thanksgiving. And Bubs directly references this trope when he says "A little eye of newt, some toe of frog. Baby you got a witch's brew goin'."

* In the ''YoungWizards'' series many spells ''used'' to require hard to find physical components, but as successive generations of wizards improved the spells the components were changed to easier to find substitutes, and eventually the spells were perfected to the point where they needed no components at all. The modern-day characters which the series follows only rarely have to cast a spell which requires any sort of physical component.

* [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in ''TheWither'' -wizards do display impressive collections of mysterious ingredients all over their labs and everyone knows stories about elixirs made of "blood of virgin killed by bolt of lightning on a cloudless night". It turns that mudane replacements works as well, but wizards encourage gossips since it keeps smallfolk away from carrying on their own experimetns.
