* ''Manga/MahouShoujoPrettyBell'' is a parody. The magic rod that is supposed to select the next schoolgirl instead chooses a 35-year-old bodybuilder. He's quite willing to take up the mantle, which is a bit of a problem for the demons used to fighting little girls...

* ''Anime/ShamanicPrincess'' is a short, DarkerAndEdgier and HotterAndSexier take on CuteWitch magical girls. The series is very non-linear, starts InMediaRes, and has a lot of {{mind screw}}. It panders to [[MultipleDemographicAppeal both female and male demographics]].

# Deconstructive, codified by ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. Debunking the very concept of a world where young girls are forced to confront evil as a CrapsaccharineWorld and delving deep into the psychology of its cast, often with religious or philosophical references. Often borders on SurrealHorror territory; ''Madoka'' itself was considered the equivalent of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' [[GenreDeconstruction for the genre]]. Other notable examples include ''Anime/PrincessTutu'', ''Anime/IlSolePenetraLeIllusioni'' and ''Anime/YukiYunaIsAHero''.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' starts with a two-part episode in which the six main characters become friends. They use a powerful ancient artifact to become magical girls and permanently defeat a SealedEvilInACan. However, despite gaining fashionable magical jewelry and the gratitude of the god-princess of the realm, the trope is almost completely absent from the rest of the show. WordOfGod from the show's creator (Lauren Faust, worked on her husband CraigMcCracken's ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'') is that ''good'' action-adventure episodes are harder to produce on a deadline and budget, and {{Myth Arc}}s have to be watched in a specific order, thus the series is more SliceOfLife.
** This oddly means that ''Friendship Is Magic'' is probably closer to a "classical" Magical Girl series.

* ''Anime/KillLaKill''



* [[SuicideSquad The Enchantress]] created by DCComics in 1966, comes very close to being a proto-MagicalGirlWarrior. Young woman June Moone goes with her slightly older boyfried to an alledgedly haunted castle for a party. Turns out that there are actual spooks. June stumbles into a secret chamber, where a mysterious being tells her she is TheChosenOne and gives her a transformation word. June says it and gets magical powers, an appearance makeover (blonde to dark red), a miniskirted costume, and [[CoolHat a kickin' witch hat.]] The Enchantress then battles a MonsterOfTheWeek and evacuates the civilians before the castle collapses. June reappears with a weak excuse and her boyfriend expresses an interest in her alter ego. There were two more stories where Enchantress fought random menaces, but the writers didn't have a good story arc beyond that, so she went into obscurity for years, including a phase as a DarkMagicalGirl.

* The ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' short story "How to Defeat a Kind Enemy" (adapted as an OVA and released with the Season 1 boxset) has Nyarko undergo TrainingFromHell to become a Magical Girl after being inspired by a NoCelebritiesWereHarmed version of ''Anime/PrettyCure''. What makes this really unusual is, she's ''already'' a HenshinHero (in the ''Series/KamenRider'' mold); in fact, her first transformation is a combined ShoutOut to ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' and ''Series/KamenRiderKuuga''.
* In ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', France turns into Magic Strike, causing him to wear a frilly pink dress and carry a matching bullhorn. (By "Strike" he means not work and picket until your employer gives you what you want.)



* ''ComicBook/AmethystPrincessOfGemworld'' combines Magical Girl with ChangelingFantasy and HighFantasy.
* The ''ComicBook/{{Gen 13}}'' miniseries ''Magical Drama Queen Roxy'', which reinvents Freefall as a MagicalGirl, is a parody of the genre. Turned out to be AllJustADream.

* In ''Fanfic/KyonBigDamnHero'', Nonoko[[note]][[NoNameGiven Kyon's little sister]] from the original[[/note]] [[DaydreamBeliever believes]] she will become a MagicalGirl after her school trip. It actually happens even earlier, with Kyon's BadassLongcoat and MorphWeapon substituting for a dress and MagicWand, and [[FunSize Achakura]] for MentorMascot.

''Series/GekisouSentaiCarranger'', the parody series, had the kid sister of the series' main villainess transforming into White Racer, a racing-themed magical girl, to occasionally help out the heroes. Also, she had a cat/car-based mecha. ''Carranger'' was an odd year.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' owes much to the MagicalGirl genre, with a LighterAndSofter approach, an [[PowerTrio all-female party]], a JobSystem that necessitates a TransformationSequence every few minutes (with all of the {{Fanservice}} that normally brings) and regular uses of ThePowerOfFriendship ([[TeamSpirit and Teamwork]]).
