* In the ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' episode "Neptune's Spatula", SpongeBob is challenged by Neptune to a cook-off to see if he is worthy of wielding the Golden Spatula. Neptune uses his powers and easily wins, but SpongeBob's cooking is found to be far superior. Neptune's final line drives the point home: "Perfect patties are made with love, not magic".

* In ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfPrydain'', it's mentioned that this is one of the good things that comes of Arwan stealing [[spoiler:and later destroying, when his lair collapses upon his death]] all of the magic tools in the land that could operate themselves. It makes sense, given a running them in the series that magic is not a sort, easy solution to problems.

problems. It's explained that people have learned how to craft and farm and make music by themselves, and [[JustifiedTrope therefore actually are better off than if they sat back and let the instruments do it for them]].

* Characters in S.M. Stirling's ''{{Emberverse}}'' series of books seem perfectly happy being thrown back into pre-industrial state. A mysterious force disables all electricity, gunpowder, and steam power. This reults in [[AMillionIsAStatistic most of humanity dying from starvation]] and the survivors reverting to agrarian communities. Although a few can be heard pining for modern conveniences (most commonly deodorant and birth control), more often than not you'll hear them say how much happier they are and that this was the way humans were meant to live. Of course, it must be pointed out that those who survived tended to be Renn Faire patrons, ranchers, history professors, survivalists, and the Society for Creative Anachronism. There's also the fact that pining miserably for the lost world is not good for one's mental health.

* Alluded to in ''ComicBooks/JudgeDredd''. The senior judges and tech division have attempted to introduce AI-controlled robotic judges several times to complement the over-stretched judges. This is always to the immense disapproval of the titular Judge Dredd. So far, every time this has been done has turned out to be a dangerous disaster, proving Dredd right.
