** The Northend daily quest "Alchemist Apprentice" involves helping the troll alchemist Professor Finklestein make a truth serum, with ingredients that range from normal-sounding (like Icecrown Bottled Water) to unusual (Raptor Claw and Pickled Eagle Egg) to bizarre (Hairy Herring Heads??) to just plain gross (Putrid Pirate Perspiration and Crystallized Hog Snot??).

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''. All you mages know ''exactly'' what I'm talking about. "What? You told me to port to Stormwind! Bah, alright, I'll come to Darnassus, ''but you're gonna pay for the reagents!'' This costs money, ya know!"

* The first three ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' games had rituals with elaborate requirements for each spell, but they were AllThereInTheManual. ''VideoGame/UltimaIV'' had you manually mixing up spells out of each reagent, typing incantations in the game's {{Fictionary}}, and then binding them with a small sacrifice of mana for later casting (with more mana.) Later games kept the reagent system, but did the rituals for you automatically.

* [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in ''TheWitcher'' -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.

Not related in any manner whatsoever, to the former Speaker of the US House of Representatives. Incidentally, "eye of newt" is actually a historic term for mustard seed, although (as evidenced by Shakespeare) confusing the term for the eyes of literal amphibian newts is a very old mistake.

* Shows up twice in ''VideoGame/PinkPantherHokusPokusPink'' for 2 different potions:
**The first potion, to turn Violet into a immortal magical ninja princess mermaid, requires “The only thing living in the saltiest sea”, and “a Princely laugh, specifically the hugest one that has a chilly past”. The magic book does not specify what is needed for the Ninja part, so Pink improvises by adding a black belt to the cauldron.
**The second potion to counter the effects of the poisonous apple requires “The carrier of the human soul” and “A redhead’s woeful plea”. When the potion fails to work, Pink again improvises, this time by adding some Greek salad.
