* In ''WebOriginal/AtopTheFourthWall'' Linksano makes a reference to "technomagic". In this case, because technomagic is such a new science there are still limitations to it.

** Some witches, like Magrat Garlick's mentor Goodie Whemper, are "research witches" who strive for more precision in their magic. When confronted with a spell calling for EyeOfNewt, they set to find out which ''species'' of newt works better for this particular spell, and so on.

It's noted that this makes them less powerful as witches (since it doesn't actually matter) but ''much'' better healers.

** Some of the Classes at Hogwarts operate this way, like herbology. It's basically just botany, but with magical plants. They seem never to study any non-magical skills. This is lampshaded by Hermione in the very first book, when she and Harry are confronted with Snape's obstacle, which is simply a logic puzzle requiring no magical skills to defeat. She comments that an ordinary wizard may have had serious problems solving it, because they "don't have an ounce of logic".

* ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'' has HermeticMagic, justifying the trope. Theoretical magic requires many hours, if not days or years, of meticulous planning and calculations, much like real-life engineering, and wizard academy of Beloria works much like a real life university. Theoretical magic is studied like maths or biology and students must write a thesis to gain degree - for example, Veres' Baccalaureate paper is on magical origins of [[OurMonstersAreDifferent darklings]].
