* ''Film/SiegeOfTheSaxons'' is a fairly mundane (albeit [[AnachronismStew highly anachronistic]]) movie about knights, outlaws, and medieval political intrigue, but it still has Arthurian elements like Excalibur and Merlin that are still treated as magical.

* ''[[{{Webcomic/Mezzacotta}} Comments on a Postcard]]'' name-drops this specifically, claiming that a [[http://www.mezzacotta.net/postcard/?comic=32 hovering telepathic female pie from the future]] is a totally legitimate example. The entire "comic" is one big joke, so make of it what you will.

* ''Anime/KikisDeliveryService'' is a SliceOfLife story in an alternate Europe where nobody bats an eye that the heroine flies around on a broomstick. The story is more about coming of age in a new community than it is about witchcraft.

* ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' is a farming simulator with heavy life sim elements. Overall it takes place in a realistic setting however supernatural aspects are in almost every game. The Harvest Goddess and the Harvest Sprites are reoccuring characters, and more recent games give the Goddess a DistaffCounterpart in the Harvest King. Witch and wizard characters are often common in recent titles.

* While Janet Evanovich's ''StephaniePlum'' series mostly avoids this (except for Morelli's Great Aunt Bella whose curses are a case of MaybeMagicMaybeMundane) the holiday oriented subseries feature Diesel (now with his own series), a magical bounty hunter who specializes in chasing "specials" (people with mutant powers) gone bad.
