* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChronicles'' has Device magic. While everybody has inherent skill in casting magic, you need special items called Magicite. You can only cast the spell specific to that Magicite, and Magicite seem to disappear after an adventure is completed. It's possible to find extremely rare relics that give you permanent Magicite, but they're still items you need to use to cast specific spells. Casting any magic more complex than the basic elements that come with each Magicite requires multiple casters to cast spells together, with the end result not only depending on what spells were used in the spell fusion, but also the timing, (i.e. two spellcasters using Fire at the same spot at the same time creates Fira, but having one person delay it by a second turns it into the powerful Firaga.) This adds a bit of Rule Magic.

* ''{{Beyblade}}'' is an odd combo of Theurgy, Device Magic, and Wild Magic. OK, it's mainly Device Magic, as most of their power comes from odd creatures inhabiting their magic tops. But they have some sort of deal with these creatures (Theurgy). Also, if you're not battling with your whole heart, or if you tick off your creature, it can up and leave you (Wild Magic).

* In ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'', Gwen initially uses Device Magic - the charms of Bezel each grant power over a certain field - one brings inanimate objects to life and provides a HealingFactor, one gives the user pyrokinesis, another lets them shoot lightning, a fourth lets them fly and use telekinesis, the fifth controls luck and the Keystone increases all of the user's attributes tenfold. Several magic users, mainly ones introduced in the original series, also use Rule Magic.

Added an entry (Webcomic/Autumn Bay) for cross-linking purposes.
Added DiffLines:
* In ''Webcomic/AutumnBay'' there are different styles of magic, most of which are Rule Magic (though sorcerers are the Inherent Gift type, they, too, have rules to follow). We see a sorcerer, a [[HotWitch witch]], and a [[{{Whatevermancy}} bibliomancer]] [[http://autumnbaycomics.com/comics/31/ perform an information-gathering ritual.]]

** It's Amestrian Alchemy that uses the movement of the tectonic plates (Father is suppressing it somewhat, and totally later on), alkahestry uses "the dragon's pulse" which seems to be something along the idea of Ley Lines and the third is the philosopher's stone [[spoiler: condensed human souls]]. Those three are from the manga and Brotherhood, the first anime had only one: human souls, albeit from two places. Condensed into a philosopher's stone in that world, but all other alchemy was powered by souls from another([[spoiler: our]]) world.

** Alchemy is rare; while magic potions can sometimes be found in the game (and ThePhilosophersStone makes an appearance), Druids out of the England Sourcebook are about the only character class able to make potions.

* ''TheSlayers'' uses all of the above listed types at some point. Most humans are restricted to Theurgy and Rule Magic with a bit of Alchemy thrown in for good measure. The Mazoku and Dragons use a combination of Inherent Gifts and Rule Magic. A lot of the Theurgy in this setting calls upon the really powerful Mazoku. Wild Magic shows up when Lina finds out that Giga Slave has the capability of actually summoning the Lord of Nightmares, Chaos herself, into the world, and if the casting is performed incorrectly, allows Chaos free rein to do anything she likes.
