* Often happens in MortadeloYFilemon. Examples include them using a big magnet, so a plane will crash... but instead blowing off an airliner's engine, 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.

** Lampshaded in the movie, where Carl gives Perry a similarly powerful wrist magnet. After they attract his glasses, he points out that they are aluminum, making the magnet that much more impressive. Later, Perry uses the magnet to attract a key which appears to be either copper or gold (but it was never explicitly stated) while having no effect on the metal robot holding the key.

*** Well, plausible until you realize that even if you don't have them equipped, you still have to be carrying them, and would be subject the exact same attraction. It's the same thing with earlier games and having the boots allow you to sink in water and walk on the bottom, but once you take them off, you're magically lighter.
**** Either that or Link's BagOfHolding is magnetically-shielded when closed, preventing the magnetic field from entering and attracting the boots while stored. Makes about as much sense as the fact that he can jump or even walk straight with those boots in his inventory, at least. Now that I think about it, maybe it's a literal PocketDimension?

* In the ''LookAroundYou'' episode "Sulfur", they test to see whether sulfur has any magnetic properties. So they use a sheet of paper to "shield" the sulfur from the magnet until everything is in place.

together. [[spoiler:It ''worked'', AND they didn't reverse it at the end of the episode. Kim used the fact that the Atlantic Ocean no longer exists to go to school in Europe without having to travel too far.]]

* The Magnetic Gloves in the GameBoyColor ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames''. All 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). Nothing else is affected by them.
