* Pelgrane Press' ''"Mutant City Blues"'' is set in a world where people with superpowers is a rising minority and, after scientific analysis has discovered the intricacies of how MagicAIsMagicA (including facts such as PowerAtAPrice, ElementalBaggage, how NeurodiversityIsSupernatural as a potential side-effect of certain powers, and so on), the result is that forensic science has evolved and is now possible to perform such things as "gunshot residue" testing for HandBlast powers, determining if PsychicAssistedSuicide has happened via X-raying the victim's brain, and so on. The setting is best described as ''Series/{{CSI}}'' meets ''Series/{{Heroes}}''.

* One of the world's top magical theoreticians in the ''Literature/LordDarcy'' Verse is utterly devoid of magical talent; he's just ''very'' good at conceptualizing the principles ''behind'' magic.

* ''Ride/TheHauntedMansion''[='s=] character Professor Wathel R. Bender is revealed in tie-in material such as the ''Ghost Post'' interactive game to be a "researcher in metaphysicks" (complete with Tesla-like lab). This is not universally accepted across the ride's UnreliableCanon but is the case in the "[[Fanfic/TheMansionverse Mansionverse]]" FanVerse.

** 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.
