* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' episode "Janine's Genie". After busting ghosts, with the help of Janine, in an antique store, the man can't pay with money so he let the ghostbusters take whatever relic they want. Janine took the typical genie lamp and it turns out it does had a Genie on it. The genie was from the evil variety and, though he does not twists Janine's wishes (be the boss of the Ghostbusters and have Egon in love with her) he does uses the wishes to open a portal to his home dimension and bring back all kinds of spirits.

* The Golden Age version of GreenLantern is actually this; a man who finds a magical lantern with a genie in it that gives him superpowers. Of course, this fantasy idea was completely abandon for the sci-fi version we all know.

* Shenron, the Eternal Dragon from the ''Franchise/DragonBall'' series, could be considered a variation on this. He "resides" in seven orange balls that must be collected before he can be summoned, which scatter across the planet after the wish is made and turn to stone for a year before being usable again. Once he appears, he can grant his summoner(s) one wish, so long as it does not exceed his own power (a concept which seems to grow more flexible as the series progresses). He is somewhat cranky, often threatening to harm summoners who take a while to make their wish, but never follows through on these threats. If the person who created the Dragon Balls dies, then so does the dragon.

** In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', after Piccolo Jr. (son/reincarnation of King Piccolo) is killed in the battle against the Saiyans, [[CantLiveWithoutYou taking Kami and Shenron with him]], the heroes are forced to go to Namek, the home of Kami and Piccolo's race, to use the Namekian Dragon Balls to revive the casualties. Porunga, the Namekian Dragon, is capable of granting three wishes, though unlike Shenron who can resurrect multiple people with one wish, Porunga can only revive one person at a time (a limitation that is later removed). Though the heroes use their first wish to revive Piccolo, which also revives Kami and Shenron. Hooray for LoopholeAbuse!
** Later in ''Dragon Ball Z'', Shenron ceases to exist when Kami re-merges with Piccolo Jr., since Shenron was created by Kami, not the Namekian he and Piccolo originally were. He is revived again however, when Dende, another Namekian, takes over the position of Guardian of the Earth. The new Shenron looks the same, but can now grant two wishes instead of one.

This is increased to three in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', presumably as a result of Dende getting stronger.

** The Super Dragon Balls are introduced in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', being the SuperPrototype of all previously mentioned dragon balls. Their Dragon, dubbed Super Shenron in lieu of his true name, is about the size of the whole universe and only responds to the language of the gods. He grants one wish, but it is said to be without any restrictions whatsoever.

* ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'' provides a ScienceFantasy version of the typical genie in the form of Aurox the larger counterpart of the Shayne and Aurox duo. Referred to as a djinn, Aurox is an [[EldritchAbomination omnidimensional horror]] that resembles a genie if it were a horned demon-like creature made up of floating body parts. The creature is somehow bonded with the 16 year old Shayne at the hip and both have a [[SymbioticPossession friendly relationship with one another]]. [[GuardianEntity Floating above her]] like a Stand from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', Aurox fights enemies alongside her and even [[HeroicHost grants her abilities]] such as stealth.
