* ''Film/OceansThirteen'' has the team send the BigBad a supermagnet that will be used to set off the security protocols of an undefeatable AI gaming security system. A supermagnet that only has to be in the room to set off the reboot measure. A supermagnet the size of a non-smart era cell phone. [[RuleOfThree A supermagnet]] that had no effect on anything metal and presumably functioned as a cell phone up to this point.

* The Magnetic Gloves in the GameBoyColor ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames''. Most objects which you can attract towards you/pull yourself towards are not only magnets, but monopolar magnets (the gloves switch between a north and south magnetic charge so you can push and pull). The only thing that's attracted to both north and south charges are Hiploop masks, but only if the monster is in a direct line and facing Link.

** The Magnesis rune in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' only ever affects the single object you aim it at and never nearby objects.

* In ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies'' is a ''magnetic mushroom''. Even more mind-boggling, it can be equipped so that instead of ferrous items, it collects silver and gold coins.

* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', Guts is able to grasp his {{BFS}} with his prosthetic hand thanks to magnets. It would take an industrial-strength electromagnet to lift that thing.

* Often happens in MortadeloYFilemon. Examples include them using a big magnet, so a plane will crash... but instead blowing off an airliner's engine that crushes them, a device by [[MadScientist Profesor Bacterio]], that repels metal -up to ''submarines''-, or as a punishment tying a magnet to Profesor Bacterio and having him attempting to escape of a nuclear bomb attracted by it.

** Also [[JustifiedTrope justified]], as being a toon prop (and literally a Hollywood magnet) it follows the laws of toon physics, so it acts exactly as you think it should or would, except (or especially) if the outcome would be funny.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' may have an aversion in the person of [[ChaoticEvil Eustace Kidd]], who has magnetism powers; the main way he uses them is magnetizing multiple objects together in chains (like you can do at home with paper clips) to give himself CombatTentacles. It's played straight when he uses his power to wrest guns from peoples hands.

* ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'': Julien feeds everyone bars that turn out to be made with magnets. Every lemur in the kingdom being full of magnets causes them to get stuck to each other, attracting a bunch of metal in addition, and then inexplicably getting the entire magnetic mess pulled toward the moon. Resident scientist even lampshades that this shouldn't be scientifically possible.

* In the ClassicDisneyShort "Donald and Pluto", Donald Duck is a plumber who uses a magnet to retrieve his tools from atop a ladder. Pluto ends up accidentally swallowing the magnet, and spends the rest of the cartoon dealing with the various objects that are mysteriously following him around.
