* Invoked at Universal Studios' ''Wizarding World of Harry Potter'' attractions via "interactive wands": replicas of wands from the HP films that come tipped with a special bead that's detectable by the theme park's concealed electronics. Correctly waving such a wand at marked locations throughout the Wizarding World areas will activate animatronics and/or water and sound effects, letting park guests "cast spells" from the ''Harry Potter'' lexicon.

* Robo from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' has no inherent magic, causing him to be a MasterOfNone due to his DoAnythingRobot construction. He has a LightningGun to recreate the Lightning spell, a proxemity mine in his chest for Fire spells, a tissue regenerator to simulate Aura, and two dark energy blasters that do Shadow damage. The only magic he can't replicate is Water/Ice.
