* In ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}},'' two of the three original characters, Ray and Egon, are legitimate paranormal researchers that channel their knowledge into the business of "paranormal investigations and eliminations." It's not clear what Peter contributes to the research, if anything, though he's stated to have a [=PhD=] in parapsychology, and he was the one that came up with the idea of making it into a business after the guys got kicked out of Columbia University.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': 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".

If an OccultDetective decides to also catalogue whatever it is they detect, they may also be researchers of a Fantastic Science. Research into magic ''itself'' is the subtrope SufficientlyAnalyzedMagic. See also MagicVersusScience, AdmiringTheAbomination. Compare TheSparkOfGenius.
