* The titular character of ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' is this. So inept, in fact, she was shipped off to Earth before she caused any more natural disasters from her inability to gauge what she's capable of actually pulling off with that wand. She can usually manage spells that are ''meant'' to be destructive pretty easily, but anything else is bound to go awry, and once or twice her wand has even ''gone off accidentally''.

She can usually manage spells that are ''meant'' to be destructive pretty easily, but anything else is bound to go awry, and once or twice her wand has even ''gone off accidentally''. For example, when she creates rainbows purely for show, they tend to be ''on fire'' and the fire will easily spread to things that shouldn't be flammable, like stone and metal.

*** Harry's track-record with potions isn't very good either, as they've done things like [[GoneHorriblyRight make him so unnoticeable he can't warn someone there's a werewolf approaching]].

** Some of the novice witches from the Tiffany Aching subseries have difficulty working magic, although in ''Discworld/AHatFullOfSky'' that's mostly because Annagramma won't stop criticizing them.

* Supplements for the {{Mystara}} D&D setting on the wizard-ruled nation of Glantri include rules for playing underage wizards, whose spells are prone to malfunctions that [=DMs=] are encouraged to [[PlayedForLaughs play for laughs]].

* In ''Literature/TalesOfTheFox'', Gerin the Fox had less than a year of wizard's training before being called home, yet desperation sometimes drives him to attempt magic anyway. But only when he's ''really'' desperate, as he knows full well just how dangerous an unskilled mage can be.

* The eponymous character of ''Manga/AkazukinChaCha'' is this. For example, she'll summon a spider when she means to produce a cloud. (This is because the words for "spider" and "cloud" are similar.)

Added DiffLines:

* Max Russo in ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' regularly has his spells go awry although there is no doubt he can work magic; he's just inept, especially in contrast to his older brother Justin, a hard worker, and older sister Alex, a slacker but naturally gifted.
