** Rarely, human Psykers proved to be a step above in mental discipline than the rest, and become Primaris Psykers. While Psykers are commonly subject to FantasticRacism from the Imperial Guards, Primaris are a whole different level, viewed with a mixture of awe and fear. Those who master the Maelstrom of Destruction path could not wield weapon while using their powers, but they won't need to as they can rip apart armors barehanded.

* [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]] prefers to rely on pure physical strength and his BreathWeapon the majority of the time, and leave the magic to his Magikoopas, but some games show he is also quite adept at using magic himself. Multiple games involve him stealing some kind of magical artifact, which he is able to [[InstantExpert wield like a pro immediately]].

*** A Swordsage who focuses on the disciplines of Desert Wind (fiery magical effects), Setting Sun (''aikido'' style trips, throws, and counters), and Shadow Hand (shadowy magical effects) would fit this trope.
*** The unarmed variant Swordsage gives up light armor proficiency to gain unarmed attacks like a Monk. With the aforementioned disciplines of Desert Wind, Setting Sun, and Shadow Hand, it would fit either this trope or SupernaturalMartialArts.
*** The arcane variant Swordsage gives up light armor proficiency to use spells instead of maneuvers. It blurs the lines between this trope, MagicKnight, and SupernaturalMartialArts.
*** The Jade Phoenix Mage prestige class lets a Crusader or Swordsage multiclass with an arcane spellcasting class more effectively. Combined with the aforementioned unarmed variant Swordsage, it would fit this trope to a T.

** Prestige classes supporting this include Psionic Fist (monk/psionics), Enlightened Fist (monk/wizard users of ElementalPunch), Sacred Fist (monk/cleric) and Jade Phoenix Mage (swordsage/wizard specialising in fire). Anything which could be used to create a MagicKnight can also be applied to unarmed strikes.

* Luffy from ''Franchise/OnePiece'' has monstrous strength known around the world in addition to being made of rubber which his style of fighting quite heavily relies on. Admittedly he'd still be able to kick pretty much everybody's asses, except for a choice few, without his rubber powers.

Admittedly he'd still be able to kick pretty much everybody's asses, except for a choice few, without his rubber powers. He also eventually invents several different ways to manipulate his rubber powers into [[SuperMode granting temporary but massive boosts to his physical strength]].

* This is something close to the default setting for magic users in ''Literature/TheBlackCompany.'' The setting is home to very few SquishyWizards, with magic making its users MadeOfIron by default (it is explicitly stated that the only way to be sure a mage is dead is to burn the body and scatter the ashes over a wide area. One villain even lays waste to half a continent despite being reduced to a severed head). That said, most of the characters shown in the books fall a little short of this trope. The straight examples are The Lady, whose martial prowess is significant enough [[spoiler: that she can get by on it alone after she's depowered at the end of the third book]], The Limper, and OneSceneWonder Bonegnasher, an eight foot tall pile of muscle who also knows enough magic for The Dominator to consider him one of the ten most powerful wizards in the world and enslave him.

* The BigBad of ''FanFic/ADifferentLesson'', Heian Chao, is most definitely one of these. On the one hand, he has ElementalPowers over [[CastingAShadow shadow]] and [[EvilIsDeathlyCold ice]]; BlackMagic (including [[TheNecromancer raising the dead]], [[SummoningRitual summoning of demons]], {{Body Snatch|er}}ing, and DemonicPossession); and [[PsychicPowers astral projection]] and {{Shadow Walk|er}}ing. All of this is implied or outright stated, however, to be due to his study and mastery of KiManipulation, and he is in fact a master of the Eagle Claw style of kung fu as well as weapons combat with both claw bracers and Emei piercers.

*** BigBad Shendu as well, but to a much lesser extent. His son Drago, however, is a very capable Kung-Fu Wizard, able to hold his own against Jackie Chan.

Several of Shendu's siblings also show traits of this trope when they are forced to fight Chan, but it's barely seen, and any potential they have is held back.

* The Elf of ''VideoGame/DragonsCrown'' has this as one of her potential builds. Investing in both Elemental Lore and [[ArmedLegs Deadly Boots]] allows the Elf to rain {{Fire Ball}}s upon her enemies [[GeoEffects when the surroundings]] works to her favor and kick enemies to death when they don't.

* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha [[SpinOffSpring ViVid]]'', Vivio's fighting style is also a combination of martial arts and magic. She has [[spoiler:[[HeelFaceTurn former]] [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Numbers]] [[HollywoodCyborg Cyborg]] Nove]] as her martial arts trainer in ''[=ViVid=]'' while Nanoha-mama watches over her magic training.
