Another point: Fictional portrayals of exorcism will sometimes involve "bell, book and candle." In real life, the Catholic casting-out ritual of bell, book, and candle is a form of ''excommunication'', something quite different.

** The Ordo Malleus section of the Inquisition is charged with investigating suspected Chaos activity and putting a stop to it before it gets out of hand. Best case scenario is that no more than a dozen people end up getting killed, while the worst case scenario may well involve having entire planets ''destroyed'' to prevent further spread of Chaos contamination.

* In Creator/AndreiBelyanin's ''[[Literature/TheThiefOfBaghdad The Shaimer of Shaitan]]'', the titular demon possesses a guard named Aslan-Bey in order to use him to kill the protagonist [[ImpossibleThief Lev]]. Lev and [[GuileHero Nasreddin]] manage to disarm and tie up the possessed guard, and Nasreddin attempts to exorcise him using a Muslim prayer he read about once, while Lev threatens Shaitan with a big stick, whacking the guard a few times with it. Finally, in order to humiliate the enemy of humankind, Nasreddin covers Aslan-Bey's nose and mouth, leaving the demon only one exit point. It works.

* Tenuously related: ''VideoGame/NetHack'' requires you to perform a "bell, book and candle" ritual on top of a vibrating section of floor at approximately dungeon level 50 in order to reach the final level of Gehennom. Good luck figuring this out by yourself.
