* ''Literature/DigitalDevilStory'' has ace programmer Akemi Nakajima using a computer to summon demons. This serves as the basis for the "summon demons with a terminal on your arm" concept used in ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei''.

*** And always it is elite tanks, created by the recovered lost technology blueprint's without the slightest understanding of it's state of the art electronic's. Not to mention the other parts. Most of the Machines Spirits are just A.I. that survived the Dark Ages. Since the Empreror prohibited all A.I., technpriest's don't even think about researching it. Well, at least that's what they keep saying.
** Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay gives us the Technical Knock and Gun Blessing talents. Technical Knock allows an operator to clear a "jam" (the catch-all term used for almost all weapon malfunctions, including in flame and energy weapons) with a swift, simple ritual [[PercussiveMaintenance that may or may not be code for hitting the gun just right.]] On the other hand, Tech Priests can learn the Gun Blessing, which allows them to unjam multiple weapons at once ''with a wave of their hand.''
** Necrons, anyone? They have no connection to the warp, but in material world their technologies tend to surpass eldar's. They have, as of their latest Codex, a unit who can tell the laws of physics to "Piss off and quit cramping my style".

* In ''Fanfic/FateGenesis'', the [[VisualNovelFateStayNight Fate characters]] typically equate the warp that brought the [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic characters]] to the Franchise/Nasuverse with an act of the 2nd True Magic- and have trouble accepting that it can be done with a machine. In chapter 9, Eggman briefly kidnaps Rin and sticks her in a cell that drains her Prana, and Rin is forced to realized that in the Segaverse, there's probably a shorter gap between magic and technology.

* Though ''FinalFantasyVI'' is the trope namer for {{Magitek}}, Magitek in the game actually allows characters to use magic similarly to the AMP technology in ''Final Fantasy XIII''. For example, wearing Magitek Armor grants the wearer access to a variety of useful spells, such as elemental beams and curative magic.

* A sort of meta-example, the words [[http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=magic "magic"]] and [[http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=machine&allowed_in_frame=0 "machine"]] may share a common proto-Indo-European root in "magh", meaning "to be able" or "to have power". So not precisely "magic" from "machine", but "magic" and "machine" from the same source.
