* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'': Kaiju can sense high amounts of energy at a distance. In Equestria the highest energy sources are alicorn and Element bearer magic and artifacts like the Crystal Heart, Tree of Harmony, and Alicorn Amulet. This threat of those sources being hunted by the enemy kaiju is why Celestia proposes the plan to have the Equestria allied kaiju guard them.

** As the series progresses, a huge number of demons attack the main characters, but their high level of monstrous magnetism is attributed to their status as the Charmed Ones, rather than just as witches. 'Ordinary' witches don't seem to draw quite so much demonic attention, but their powers and resulting awareness of the supernatural bring them into contact with magical evil sooner or later anyway. However, since the witches of the ''Charmed'' universe are often portrayed as {{MagicKnight}}s, they can usually handle it.

The ability to sense magic in the first place is SupernaturalSensitivity. Related to MagneticMedium. See also EncounterBait, MagneticPlotDevice. Not to be confused with [[Music/MonsterMagnet the neo-acidrocker band]] or [[@/MonsterMagnet the troper]] with a similar name.

* In ''TheMonsterGirlEncyclopedia'', "spirit energy" is the fundamental source of magic. It's also the basic energy that all of the setting's {{Cute Monster Girl}}s absorb and so are able to track. Which means spellcasters are prime targets for any monster-girl that detects their presence. Though, fortunately, monster-girls in this setting no longer [[ImAHumanitarian eat humans]], preferring instead to love and rape them.

* ''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.]]

* Discussed in the ''Literature/GentlemanBastard'' series. [[spoiler:The Bondsmagi of Karthain believe that the Eldren {{Precursors}} vanished because their widespread use of magic -- the continent is littered with [[MadeOfIndestructium invulnerable]] Elderglass buildings and artifacts -- drew the attention of something incomprehensibly awful from beyond the stars.]] The Bondsmagi avoid large-scale works of magic and ration out their services specifically to avoid putting that theory to the test.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' supplement ''Bug City''. After Chicago was overrun by insect spirits, a nuclear weapon detonation put the spirits into hibernation. Using any form of magic near them can cause them to wake up and attack you.

* 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.
