* A variation is found in in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''. A lot of the potions have ingredients that are meant to ''invoke'' these sorts of things; for example, in one book he plays energetic potion into his cauldron as an ingredient for a vigor potion, and boring elevator music for a "stealth" potion[[note]]More appropriately, a potion that renders the drinker an UnusuallyUninterestingSight[[/note]]. Played straighter when Dresden folds sunshine into a handkerchief for later use, and played totally straight in that he has to be ''totally happy'' in order to collect that sunshine. A later book explains that he's been unable to pull it off since [[spoiler:the love of his life was turned into a vampire and left him]].
** He also has a few others, like a jar full of mouse scampers for use as potion ingredients.

** He also has a few others, like a jar full of mouse scampers for use as potion ingredients. In early books he says that potions need an ingredient for each of the five senses; as such, the hearing ingredient is usually appropriate music (energetic music for a vigor potion, boring elevator music for a stealth potion).

* Subverted in the ''Disney/GummiBears'' episode "Too Many Cooks". Sir Paunch calls out rather odd ingredients as he makes his special taffy, like "Starfire Blossoms" and a "golden goblet of midsummer fog". In truth, he's doing this to fool the eavesdropping King Gregor, and only using conventional ingredients, like flour, milk, sugar and the like.

** Norse Mythology is filled with examples of this. Insubstantial ingredients are often the main ingredients of powerful spells and objects, an oath being the most powerful. The most unique example may well be the binding of Loki. Loki is bound to a stone with chains, transmuted from the intestines of Loki's murdered son (who had been killed for the sole purpose of using his guts to bind Loki). No chain would actually have bound Loki, but what is actually binding Loki is not the chains, or the fact that they were made from the intestines of a god, but rather that the chains contain an insubstantial ingredient: the bond between father and son, something that not even a god can break[[note]]This could imply that the chains could be broken by someone who had no ties to the late Vali, as to such a person the chains would not represent the bonds of friendship or kinship, but mere iron. However, by the time Loki was bound, he had become so unpopular that only his immediate kin had any interest in freeing him, and since they all had ties to Loki or Vali, the magic worked on them just fine[[/note]. However, Ragnarok is fated to occur due to [[LoopholeAbuse a simple oversight]] on the part of the gods: The chains binding Loki are unbreakable, but the stone that Loki is bound to is an ordinary rock, so his endless struggling against the stone slowly grinds it to dust.
