* Many real life ceremonial magicians use wands or staves in their rituals to help focus and direct their power or simply for ceremonial purposes. Likewise, a ceremonial dagger, sometimes known as an athame, is often used for the same purpose.

** In the first book, Moiraine has a long white wand that she uses to focus her powers. It's a ''sa'angreal'', a high-order PowerAmplifier, and is used later by a group of Aes Sedai to Heal Mat Cauthon and much later by Egwene Al'Vere to repel a Seanchan raid on the White Tower. It becomes her WeaponOfChoice during the Last Battle, too.

Added DiffLines:

** Harry holds three wands in one hand at one point, casting a triple Stunning Spell. Sadly, this is the only application of MoreDakka to magic.

* Magnifo from ''WesternAnimation/{{Mixels}}'' wields a pair of them. They're able to shoot out magic bursts, teleport him and the other Wiztastics, and perform standard stage magic as well.

* In ''GuildWars'', wands give their wielder a simple magical attack and are typically paired with focus items which grant additional [[ManaMeter energy]]. Staves are a two-handed alternative that combine a wand and focus.

* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' has dedicated magical tools, which can be any object the mage feels is magically relevant (though there are some special ones based on things like political faction) ranging from traditional wands and goblets to iPods and laptops. While unnecessary, the relevence the tool has to the mage enhances their soul's connection to the source of magic, and thus decreases the chance of damaging reality through malfunctions. However in the Mage games there are also objects which possess powers of their own referred to as "talismans.
* As of its fourth edition, ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' features the concept of 'implements', class-specific magic items that can boost the user's accuracy and damage with magical attacks. (They may have other powers as well, but this is their main function.) Examples are holy symbols for clerics and paladins, orbs, staffs (sic) and wands for wizards, and rods, wands, and pact blades for warlocks.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/ArsMagica'' lets a mage select a magic item to attune as a Talisman: it becomes much more receptive to further enchantments, counts as part of the mage for all mystical effects, and boosts some of the mage's spellcasting. One mage's spear Talisman enhances all spells that cause harm at a distance and can open bleeding wounds by pointing it at a victim.

to:

* In ''Fanfic/{{Marionettes}}'', these exist, with a pony named Magic Star having been the greatest wandsmith to ever live. At one point, she worked with Starswirl the Bearded and Mage Meadowbrook to custom make wands for the two of them, which are said to be among the strongest to ever exist. [[spoiler:The Marionettes, robot ponies made by [[BigBad the Stallions in Black for their goals]], have magic wands in their horns, and Trixie's was the one Magic Star and Meadowbrook made.]]

* The main character of ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' wields a wand that's an heirloom passed down through members of her family. It transforms based on who's currently holding it.

it. It's powered by a [[HamsterWheelPower tiny unicorn running on a treadmill]], [[{{Magitek}} needs a jewel like plug-in on the bottom called a charger]] to remain functional, and can be [[MorphWeapon transformed into weapons to suit the users needs]]. It's main use is ThePowerOfCreation, potent enough to put the royal family in power, [[NoodleIncident apparently accidentally delete physical laws across the multiverse]], and obviously serve as the {{Macguffin}} for the series BigBad. Most amazingly of all, it's implied by the TricksterMentor for wielders to only skim ''the surface'' of manipulating magical forces. It's possible for Star to "dip down" and achieve a greater depth of magical power.
