* Disney's version of ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' puts rules on genie magic. They can't kill anyone, force someone to fall in love, or bring people back from the dead ([[CameBackWrong "It's not a pretty picture; I don't like doing it!!!"]]). Genie doesn't mention it at first, but also eventually adds that they can't use their magic to serve themselves. And you can't wish for extra wishes, either.

Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/HeroesOfTheDesk'' depicts characters of ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' who have come to life in the style of ''Literature/TheIndianInTheCupboard''. The process that made them real [[AppliedPhlebotinum isn't explained]] but it follows a defined set of rules that [[ExploitedTrope the characters learn to make use of]].
** Any Hero character created in plastic comes to life when placed in a specific chest.
** Any Hero character who "dies" disappears in blue mist before reappearing inside said chest.

* Stardust, a crossover with WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic and VideoGame/XCom, integrates Equestrian magic into the psionics and other advanced technology the aliens display in the original game. The element "elerium" from the game is stated to be identical to Equestrian "arcanite," and is used to combine magic and technology, allowing for a positively dizzying array of MagiTek weapons and devices.

* Stardust, AradsStardust, a crossover with WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic and VideoGame/XCom, integrates VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown, equates Equestrian magic into with the psionics and other advanced abilities and technology the aliens display in the original game. The element "elerium" from the game is stated to be identical to Equestrian "arcanite," and is used to combine magic and technology, allowing for a positively dizzying array of MagiTek weapons and devices. The author gets pretty much about as in-depth as is possible without a degree in physics when it comes to explaining the mechanics of magic.

* In ''Film/TheLastAirbender'', M. Night Shyamalan changed a significant aspect of Firebending so that it aligned better with the other bending arts. In the show, Firebenders could create their own fire, but for the movie, they are now required to have an external fire SOURCE to manipulate. [[ElementalBaggage As he said, Katara needed a bag of water and Toph needed to be touching the earth, so why don't firebenders need fire?]] [[note]] In the series, Iroh explained this source was the bender's own body heat. [[/note]]

*** It's hinted at with the [[GameBreaker Sigil Stones]] in ''Oblivion'': at higher levels, they're more powerful than Soul Gems, but they can only bestow one spell effect on a weapon or piece of armor. In short, it's a quick-and-dirty way to get a super-enchantment on anything you want, that doesn't even require an Altar.

** He can mimic any power (Up to, and including the ''[[PhysicalGod Phoenix Force]]'')
** He has to be within a certain range of the person he's mimicking. E.G., If there's no one nearby with a healing factor, he can't give himself one. If there is, he can.

* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'' points out Equestrian and Terran magic runs on different rules and can't be used to counteract each other. Equestrian magic works by using your emotions like ThePowerOfFriendship, ThePowerOfHate, and ThePowerOfLove to draw out your energy and manipulate it. Terran magic works by harnessing and manipulating the mana in your body and the surrounding environment.

Each type of magic has a 'nexus' from which it originated [[spoiler:[[BigBad Bagan]] for Terran magic and [[BigGood Harmony]] for Equestrian magic.]] While Light Magic and Dark Magic are both Equestrian magics, they do are also distinct from one another [[spoiler:to the point that Bagan realizes that Harmony ''can't'' have been the source of Dark Magic and it turns out Grogar is the nexus for it.]]

* Subverted in the ''Literature/CollegiaMagica'' trilogy by CarolBerg, in that this is certainly how it is ''taught''...whether the true nature of magic follows this trope or not is a different matter.

** Even Ty Lee's chi blocking, which appears to come out of nowhere with no explanation, is based off of the idea that acupuncture can block chi, and that bending uses chi as well. ''Legend of Korra'' proves that anyone can learn this if they practice, [[spoiler: and can be used in conjunction with bloodbending to semi-permanently take away someone's bending]]. rts may have even evolved from Energybending, developing in various new ways but always using the same or similar principles as a basis.]]
