* In ''Literature/TheBelgariad'' and ''The Malloreon'', magic creates a noise that those with the skill can hear. For this reason, the party often had to avoid using much magic because other spell users would hear that noise, and although their enemy's individual casters were vastly inferior to any of them, there were a lot of them. Other times, they would have to use "quiet" spells like shapeshifting or intentionally use "loud" spells as distractions. Strong ambient magic also makes similar noises, and these can allow certain levels of magic to be "drowned out", allowing them to be used safely.
** Another pair of Eddings' series, ''Literature/TheElenium'' and ''The Tamuli'' also touches on the idea that magic (being of divine origin here) has a signature that someone can sense if looking for it. Even the legendary Bhelliom emits this kind of "noise" when it's invoked. But there is one exception: [[spoiler:Delphaeic magic, because the Delphae were ''cursed'' for their own protection; curses are naturally "silent"]].

* In TanyaHuff's ''Literature/SmokeAndShadows'' novels, Tony Foster, who already seems to be a WeirdnessMagnet, finds that he attracts even more supernatural phenomena once he becomes an actual wizard. His vampire ex-boyfriend (need more be said?) warns him that now that he is "a player" he stands out from the ranks of ordinary humanity and will inevitably attract attention. Not that Tony didn't have a history of stumbling into the supernatural anyway.

* ''Anime/YuYuHakusho'': After the Chapter Black arc, Genkai tells a group of humans who developed spirit powers to only use their powers if their life is in danger as doing so will attract demons to them. [[FridgeLogic Though given that they were considered roughly B rank fighters and most demons in the human world are C rank and below, it's not much of a threat.]]

* In ''Literature/TheShining'', the evil supernatural presence in the Overlook Hotel can't do much to people with little to no PsychicPowers (the titular "Shining"). When someone as gifted as Danny shows up, very bad things happen. The sequel ''Literature/DoctorSleep'' reveals that some of the Overlook's spirits continued to haunt Danny well into adulthood [[spoiler:though by then he has become strong enough to seal them in his own mind.]]
