* Early editions of ''TabletopGame/TheDarkEye'' had actual short rhymed incantations with every spell for the ''players'' of spellcasting characters, with a literal "if you don't say it, your character doesn't cast it" approach. To this troper's understanding, this was gradually phased out later.

* Magic in the ''Literature/EarthseaTrilogy'' works by the user speaking the language of dragons; since it is [[LanguageOfTruth impossible to lie in said language]], the universe will change to make what is said true.

* Spells in ''RecordOfLodossWar'' are cast using an incantation that's essentially a rhyme describing the intended effects.

* ''ScrappedPrincess'' has these. More adept magic users can abbreviate the incantations to cast spells rapid-fire: makes for a funny CurbStompBattle in the first episode.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'' has "Mystic treasure at the center, lift the veil that I may enter" used to enter the hidden city of San Lorenzo. Puss mixes up "Mystic" with "Magic" because he's an outsider, but when the mage that made the incantation in the first place makes the same mistake, it's an indication he's not quite what he seems.

* In ''Film/WarCraft2016'', spoken incantation is part of spellcasting. Lothar and Durotan both exploit this at different points of the story to stop Khadgar from using magic by clasping a hand over his mouth.

* ''ValkyrieProfile'' and [[VideoGame/ValkyrieProfile2Silmeria its]] [[ValkyrieProfileCovenantOfThePlume sequels]] are full of these when big magic is performed by a spell-casting character or even some of the bosses. Bloodbane's rendition of Gravity Blessing is an incantation of pure horror. Celestial Star, quoted in the quotes section, is the most well-known because it delivers the most hits in the first game.

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'', wizards use incantations, but back it up with potent props (sometimes stripped down to a small stick and 3cc of mouse blood if they're summoning Death). Witches tend to dispense with this. When Magrat Garlick had to open a locked door with magic, she spoke to it, got into its mind, and got it to remember when it was part of a green, growing, living, tree. The planks of the door then erupted into growth and opened a gap. Granny Weatherwax approved of the technique, but said if it had been her, she's have gone into the rocks around it and prodded their memories of when they were all runny and liquid in a volcano.
