* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', [[spoiler: the Winter Soldier]] is believed to have some degree of AntiMagic. As it happens, he doesn't and being both a SuperSoldier and a CombatPragmatist with ImprobableAimingSkills, he really doesn't need it.

** Mist in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance]]'' [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius and]] ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Radiant Dawn]]'' can become this with a little effort. As a Cleric/Valkyrie she has an incredibly high RES stat that makes her all but immune to magic attacks. Once she promotes to Valkyrie she gains the ability to use swords and [[MagikarpPower with a little effort]] can easily fulfill this role.

* ''LightNovel/FateZero'': Although Kiritsugu Emiya is a mage himself, he has all the characteristics of a traditional Mage Killer (indeed he's known as "The Magus Killer"). Because his magical abilities are limited he usually makes use of technology instead, generally opting for massive overkill to ensure success. Case in point: One of his targets has fortified the top several floors of a building with every conceivable magical defense. Kiritsugu's solution? [[DungeonBypass Blow up the building.]] A story is also told of him doing the same thing to a passenger jet.

This usually works because mages tend to be traditionalists who are ignorant of the full potential of modern technology, so they aren't generally very good at defending against it.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', this is a trait of the Winged Twilights, a [[BatOutOfHell bat-like]] form of lesser Daedra with some [[HarpingOnAboutHarpies harpy-like]] traits. Between their strong physical attacks and their ability to [[AttackReflector reflect]][=/=][[AntiMagic resist]] magical attacks, Winged Twilights are extremely tough foes for magic oriented individuals to defeat.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', the [[UnevenHybrid Breton]] race is renowned not only for their own [[WitchSpecies inherent magical abilities]], but for the AntiMagic traits the [[BreedingSlave elven blood flowing through their veins]] gives them. They are extremely magic-resistant, bordering on immunity with their racial power. They are especially strong against the [[OurElvesAreBetter Altmer (High Elves)]], who bias towards Destruction magic. While they [[SquishyWizard lack the physical durability]] of their [[HumansAreWarriors fellow races of Men]], Bretons are the bane of opposing mages everywhere.

He's so proficient in his craft that he is able to kill a ''very'' high number of Sorcerers Supreme in a storyline known as "The Last Days of Magic."

** Note though, that they don't have any kind of AntiMagic. They mostly deal with humanoid [=SCPs=] with a combination of psychology, cleverness, WeHaveReserves, and MoreDakka. [[spoiler: Except Dr. Clef. He uses reality warping to cancel reality warping, and ''then'' uses psychology, cleverness, class Ds, and big guns.]]
