* In the DonaldDuck cartoon "[[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts Trick or Treat"]] Huey, Dewey and Louie enlist the help of a witch to get back at Donald for pranking them. She whips up a potion with quotations from MacBeth, and partway through she leans over to the nephews and says "This is the real stuff, you know. Right out of Shakespeare."

* In another Creator/RoaldDahl book, ''Literature/JamesAndTheGiantPeach'', there's the formula that created the titular giant peach and the enormous insects that lived in the peach's pit: -->"One thousand long, slimy crocodile tongues boiled in the skull of a dead witch for 40 days and 40 nights. Add the gizard of a pig, the fingers of a young monkey, the beak of a parrot and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking three spoonfuls of sugar]], and then let the moon do the rest."

-->'''Agatha''': Geez, you had your toad eye slotted into your newt eye grid, and that was throwing off the aetheric vibrations. Amazing it worked at all, really.

* All of the magic in ''SecretOfEvermore'' revolves around alchemy formulas which each require different regents. * In ''{{Albion}}'', one of your party's spellcasters requires a special seed to be thrown at target. You buy these or pick from bushes occurring occasionally in wilderness.

* A potion in ''AVampyreStory'' requires a nightshade blossom, a gargoyle's breath, a virgin's bone, and a literal eye of newt. The first three she manages to scrounge up, but it's the middle of winter, meaning no newts. So she uses the eye from a picture of a newt in a coloring book. This works perfectly. * ''RuneScape'' has lots of odd ingredients for spells, though baby blue dragon scales, limpwurt roots, white berries, snape grass, red spiders' eggs, and (what else?) the eye of newt are some of the body parts necessary for potions. Then you get the Rag and Bone Man, who asks for some really strange bones. Shoulder bone of a of giant? Tail bones from nine kinds of dragon? Pelvis of a four-legged, magic-casting water creature that dwells in caves? Fibula bone of the third leg on an '''adult''' three-legged creature? He wants them all and more. [[spoiler:He serves an EldritchAbomination that wants to rebuild itself with all the bones. {{Squick}}.]]

* Reusable items - equipment for mixing the ingredients or casting the spell, like a cauldron or a MagicWand. Could be as simple as a bowl and spoon, or as complex as an entire alchemical laboratory.
