* In an episode of ''Podcast/PlumbingTheDeathStar'', Zammit argues the {{Masquerade}} in ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' is bad because wizards and muggles could be working together to make, in his words, "A MEGA-NUKE" by combining magic and science.
-->'''Jackson''': No, a nuke with a dragon in it!
-->'''Zammit''': With '''three dragons'''!

* The Technomages in ''Series/BabylonFive'' and the SpinOff ''Series/{{Crusade}}'' are exactly this. They are literally described as "people who uses technology to imitate the effects of magic".

When {{Magitek}} is combined with [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism gritty realism]], we get DungeonPunk, but magitek is also common in comic fantasy. There are also some cases of technology based on sufficiently advanced magic, which is itself disguised sufficiently advanced technology. FantasticScience leads to this because it treats magic ''as'' science; something to be studied and learned and experimented with.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', powers granted by the devil fruits are often used in very creative ways. Ace's sailboard is propelled thanks to his ability to generate flames, Captain Smoker's Blower Bike is powered by wind-catching wheels being blown by the smoke he generates, Mister 3's ship is also powered thanks to its owner's candle wax generating superpowers. Eneru supplies himself electicity used to fly his Ark Maxim. The dials (seashells that can store kinetic energy, sound, light, fire and anything else depending on the version) and transponder snails might be seen as this, but is most likely ''OrganicTechnology''. One Piece is a versatile manga indeed.
* In ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'', fossilized dragon hearts are dug up and used as a power source for the planet's HumongousMecha. Lord Dornkirk's technological empire seems almost entirely comprised of {{Magitek}} machinery. An early episode even featured a quarry for said dragon hearts that had its own HumongousMecha onsite... a [[MundaneUtility fossilized dragon heart-powered bulldozer.]] This is how [[spoiler: Dilandau used to be a little girl named Selena Schezar... and reverts to a female body at the end. Selena was kidnapped and used for "fate-alteration" experiments.]]

** That's mostly the Nouveau Guild and their nation. Nouveau magic, as the name implies, runs on change, so coming up with new and interesting ways to use magic, and the corresponding changes in society, are what makes the magic work. Other nations on Cyress follow more stable systems of magic (barring [[CloudCuckooLand the Astral Guild]]) and don't have the {{Magitek}}.

** Bonus points for that most of the {{Magitek}} of the elves seems to be sentient, no matter how pointless it is -- for example an enchanted arrow that loudly protests when it's fired at a dragon.

* Some Creator/TomHolt books have Magitek, such as the magic mirror that runs ''Mirrors '95'' in ''Snow White And The Seven Samauri'' or the various devices in the ''Portable Door'' series. ''Literature/DjinnRummy'' mentions genies who have gone into business running technological devices, making these {{Magitek}} in the truest sense.

** Chaos forces use [[BlackMagic black]] [[{{Magitek}} magitech]] to create [[ArtifactOfDoom their most powerful works]], such as [[DemonicPossession daemonically-possessed]] tanks or HumongousMecha. The Dark Mechanicus and their Hereteks are often the sources of most of the Daemon Engines. Meanwhile the Iron Warriors (who have close ties to the Dark Mechanicus) are the biggest employers of Daemon Engines and possessed wargear.

* SpiritualSuccessor series ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' has {{Magitek}} in spades as well, though the magic is called {{Alchemy}} and [[PsychicPowers Psynergy]]. Most of the {{Magitek}} here is SchizoTech remaining from the glory days of {{Alchemy}}.

* It's a little unclear how much of ComicBook/{{Galactus}}' power comes from the Power Cosmic and how much comes from his very advanced technology. It's even less clear after he [[FusionDance merges]] with a swarm of [[KillerRobot Killer Robots]] that is his UltimateMarvel counterpart.

* ''Broken Gears'' as "A game of animistic steampunk", runs on this. It's [[AfterTheEnd Post-Apocalyptic]] GaslampFantasy where firearms must be oiled to feed salamanders (see [[Quotes/{{Magitek}} quotes]]) and are tested with thermal ink, and a Devil-[[DemonicPossession possessed]] Analytical Machine [[CloseEnoughTimeline designed by Charles Babbage and Alan Turing]] "helped" to finish WorldWarII and immediately started WorldWarIII.

* ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}} [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Sun and Moon]]'' brings us Magearna, a MechanicalLifeform who is powered by a [[HeartDrive Soul Heart]] made from the life energy of other Pokemon. Fittingly enough, it's a Steel/Fairy type, the two types that represent technology and magic the most.

** The Garlean Empire from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' uses its is primarily populated by a race of {{Unsorcerer}}s and so they use their superior magitek technology to conquer other countries, even utilizing Magitek Armor ripped straight from concept art for ''VI''.''VI''.
** The Niflheim Empire from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' extensively uses Magitek in its military having an entire army of MechaMooks known as the Magitek Infantry as well as many HumongousMecha in their service known as Magitek Armors, high ranking soldiers are also gifted with things such as PowerArmor, ArtificalLimbs and weapons that enhance the wielders abilities to super human levels. Later on in the story you find that these warmachines are powered by siphoning magic from Daemons, and that the Magitek Infantry are actually [[spoiler: {{Cyborg}}s made from DesignerBabies grown in a lab and grafted with daemon parts and machinery]].

* In ''Manga/MahouTsukaiNoYome'', this is the product of Magus Craft, which uses magical power as a power-source rather than electricity.
* The plot of ''{{Manga/Devilman}} vs. {{Manga/Cyborg009}}'' involves a MadScientist working for Black Ghost building a cyborg body for a demon to posess, in hopes of making the perfect killing machine.
