* In the British newspaper comic ''ComicStrip/ThePerishers'', there's a strip where Wellington is demonstrating a magnet to Marlon, and he turns it backward so it will repel things. In reality, magnets will only repel other magnets, and only when their like poles are facing each other.
** Magnets will repel [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diamagnetism diamagnets]], but it's not nearly as strong as what you'd expect, and they're repelled regardless of which way the magnet faces.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'', the cartoon magnets used by Photo Finish are strong enough to lift Rarity (and her heavy dress) from the floor, or rip off her sleeves, but don't have any effect on other metal objects on the stage.

* Parodied in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', where Eddie uses a large toon magnet to try and wrest a sword off Judge Doom's hands, the magnetic force depicted as lightning bolts that literally grab the sword and pull 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.

* The ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' proved that magnets can't deflect a bullet, as in ''Film/LiveAndLetDie''.
** Or rather, they can, but only with a large amount of supermagnets, nothing like the wristwatch-sized magnet in the movie, and custom-made steel bullets. And even then it only caused the bullet to ricochet off the magnets, continuing its general direction.

* [[CoolTrain The Beast]] in ''WebComic/GirlGenius'' is able to magnetically influence non-ferrous metals like gold. The characters [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20141126 explicitly comment]] about the seeming impossibility of this. [[JustifiedTrope Then again]], it ''is'' a [[MadScientist Heterodyne]] contraption, and the Heterodynes were never really hindered by minor details like the laws of physics.

* [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadrunner Wile E. Coyote]] got bitten by this once. In his attempt to catch Bugs Bunny with an iron carrot, his super-magnet ended up attracting all sorts of metal junk instead, including the Eiffel Tower, an ocean liner and finally a ballistic missile, which blew him to kingdom come.
* Another ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short, "Bugsy and Mugsy", culminates with Bugs putting roller skates on a tied-up Mugsy, then using a magnet under the floor to move Mugsy around...and slam him repeatedly into Rocky. This, of course, won't work for the same reasons ''The Simpsons'' example above won't work.
* In still another ''Looney Tunes'' short, "Zipping Along", Wile E. Coyote tries to capture the Road Runner by mixing bird seed with small balls, so that when the bird eats the seeds, he eats the steel balls as well. The coyote then brings out a huge magnet to bring in the Road Runner, only to get an already-lit-canister of TNT instead. OhCrap.

* Several bosses in WorldOfWarcraft have magnetism-related abilities. One example is [[http://www.icy-veins.com/wow/siegecrafter-blackfuse-strategy-guide-normal-heroic Siegecrafter Blackfuse,]] who will periodically drop electromagnets on the raid that inexorably pull players across the stage. One can understand how [[StoneWall plate and mail wearers]] would be affected, but why the [[GlassCannon cloth and leather-wearers?]]

** 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.

* ''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.
