* ''Film/NowYouSeeMe'' seems to believe that being magician is equivalent to being a ninja (either that, or the Four Horsement where somehow chosen for their fighting abilities on top of their on-stage prowesses). One of the magicians takes down several cops at melee combat, and even ''uses playing cards as shurikens''. They're also all pretty good with handcuffs. And one of them is a mentalist, which apparently gives him JediMindTrick - like powers.

** ''Fight Fever'' has Magic Dunker, a basketball player probably named after Magic Johnson. His projectile is a basketball, but he jumps into the air and throws it with a dunking motion.
