** Especially since in the [[TheWarGods Bazhell]] series' background the old empire that fell 1,000 years before was explicitly Magitek. Dwarfs are championed by the author due to his hatred of the anti-technology stance of much of fantasy. The old way of making steel depended on the support of wizards. The new one uses Bessemer Converters. Steam engines are being discovered and shock absorbers are now being used on wagons.

* Parodied in ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' with the [=MagiMechTech=] [=MechaMech=], a robot "powered by a sinister blend of magic and technology. Since sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic, though, you're not sure in what proportion."

* In ''Franchise/StarCraft'', the Terran [[InvisibilityCloak Cloaking Device]] runs off the users PsychicPowers. Similarly, ''all'' Protoss tech is psi-powered, but much more efficiently so since the 'toss passively harness Psi, rather than actively like the Terrans, who run the risk of [[PsychicNosebleed hurting themselves if they do it too much.]]

** The vanished [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer (Deep Elves or "Dwarves") were the undisputed masters of Magitek on Nirn. Every piece of Dwemer tech is a fusion of magic and engineering that makes mere enchanting look like a joke. And then, of course, there's good ol' [[ScienceFantasy Michael]] [[MindScrew Kirkbride]], former developer and lore writer, who is known for posting some (LooseCanon) works on the lore forums, including the "Loveletter from the Fifth Era", a cryptic warning from the future, and Kinmune, about a robot trapped in the past. Notably, the core of the Dwemer's magical technology involved machines and tools designed to manipulate "tonal architecture" or the sounds and vibrations created by the "Earth Bones," which were the parts of the Aedra that were used to create and define the laws of the world. In effect, they completely bypassed "normal" magic (which involves using the magicka that flows into the world from the sun and the stars) and instead [[RealityWarper hijacked the fundamental laws of the world and used them for their own ends.]]

** Much of the technology of the extinct Ayleids (Wild Elves) is a form of Magitek. They powered their technologically advanced (relative to the other non-Dwemer races of Tamriel) cities with Magicka-recharging Welkynd stones and Enchantment-recharging Varla stones, items implied to have been created using concetrated [[StarPower starlight]], which they Ayleids viewed as the most "sublime" form of magic.

* The GBA remake of ''ShiningForce'' has its magic coming from hyper-advanced {{Kill Sat}}s in orbit around the world. In fact, one of the main hero's abilities is to fire down an ion cannon blast.

* Constanze Braunschbank Albrechtsburger from ''Anime/LittleWitchAcademia'' is a [[CuteWitch witch student]] who mixes magic with technology like a [[GirlGenius Spark.]] She made a RobotBuddy out of a Playstation-like console, flies a broom with a propeller-driven engine, made a manabolt firing shotgun, and magic powered microwave ovens, among other tricks.

*** [[AllThereInTheManual The Official Lorebook]] later reveals them to be a subversion, with their "Magitek" being named ironically; being "Technology which triumphs over Magic". Despite not being a proper example themselves though, the Garleans were heavily inspired by the straight example provided by the Ancient Allagan Empire, though they used the term "Aetherochemical".
