* The Imperator, a villain of ComicBook/DoctorStrange, is adamant about the idea that MagicIsEvil due to his FreudianExcuse, and as such has geared himself up with science to fight against all magic users. 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." [[spoiler:Ironically, magic is also his AchillesHeel.]]

* 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.

** 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.]]

* Shizune in ''Fanfic/PerfectionIsOverrated'' has two powers that work well against the [[MaiHime Himes]], who mainly attack through their Elements and Childs. The first is a Silencing Aura, which reduces the effectiveness of the powers of everyone near her, and increases in potency as more people are near her. The second, the Silencing Sigil, completely prevents one person from using any special powers. In order to counter this threat, [[spoiler:Natsuki [[MugglesDoItBetter obtains a pistol]] and uses it to kill Shizune]]. In the side story, ''A Common Enemy Without A Common Cause'', Shizune is at a strong advantage over her fellow [[ParodySue SUEs]], who are even more reliant on their powers than the Himes are, [[spoiler:but gets mortally wounded by two nameless police officers]].

** The {{Nasuverse}} also features the Black Barrel, a Conceptual Weapon which annihilates any magic it shoots. The more magic someone (or something) has, the more powerful the Black Barrel becomes, to the point that it can OneHitKill ''[[EldritchAbomination the Ultimate Ones]]''. Also, it can only be used by an ordinary, non-magical human being, making it the ultimate weapon for a Mage Killer. Problem is, in every story except ''Literature/AngelNotes'' (which takes place in the far distant future), the thing's been lost for ages, though (much less powerful) replicas of it will pop up here and there.

* Although Kiristugu from FateZero 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.
** During the series he blows up an entire building to kill a single mage, [[DungeonBypass making all of the careful magic protections worthless]]. A story is also told of him doing the same thing to a passenger jet.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': As was implied in ''Clone Wars'', Mandalorian equipment is explained to be specifically designed to fight Jedi. Jetpacks give them mobility, repulsors simulate Force Push, electrowhips give them the ability to incapacitate and grab things from afar, and poison darts can slow down even a Jedi. Subverted when Sabine uses these on Kanaan during training. He still defeats her easily; as he points out, the Jedi ''won'' the war with the Mandalorians.

** In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Gaiden,]]'' ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Awakening,]]'' and ''Fates'' there is a class called the Dread Fighter which has naturally high magic defense, and in the latter two games they gain skills that increases that magic defense even further.

** [[StealthExpert Stealth]] heroes like [[Franschise/{{Starcraft}} Nova, Zeratul]], and [[VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} Samuro]] also qualify. Relying on surpise attacks, they can actually make short work on any mage hero, especially with Zeratul and Samuro with their mobility skills.
** As with [[VideoGame/StarCraftIILegacyOfTheVoid Alarak]], his abilities make him terrifyingly good at this. Telekinesis can be used to force mage heroes towards him, where he can shred them to bits. Discord Strike comes with a Silence which is absolutely devastating to any spellcaster. And since the abilities of mage heroes tend to be telegraphed, he can use Counter-Strike to heavily punish such attempts.
