* Averted by the ''[[{{Suikoden}} Genso Suikoden]]'' series - while runes appear above the characters whenever they use magic or special abilities, the hermetic aspect of the runes is served by semi-permanently inscribing them on the character's bodies (almost always the back of the hand or forehead).

** Also subverted in [[{{Nasuverse}} the verse]] with runic magecraft. One major drawback is that it must be somehow inscribed on the target. Two characters shown the use of runes in combat: one drew the symbol in mid-air with cigarette smoke and overlaid it on the target, while the other carried around a talon to physically carve them out.

* Magic circles occasionally appear when Tohru uses her dragon magic in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid''. The anime standardized it so that it happens every time she uses a spell (with the circle appearing either in front of her face or hand, depending on whether or not it's self-targeting). Interestingly, none of the other dragons have even been shown to uses them since they always cast magic off screen.
