* ''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.

* Zatanna in WesternAnimation/YoungJustice. She casts spells by saying words backwards. So if she wants to cast fire she says 'iref.'

* 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.

* In PiersAnthony's Literature/ApprenticeAdept series, all Stiles's spells have to be in rhyming verse. Slightly complicated by the fact that each incantation only works once, ever.

* In the Nasuverse, arias spoken by magi are actually forms of self-hypnosis to improve their magecraft; the actual words hold no power. Only two examples are shown where the actual words are magical. First, in ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'', there's someone who learned a language that allows him to change reality by describing the world differently than it is. Second, there's Caster in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', who uses the language of the Age of Gods, which is apparently such that the words themselves can are fully-formed spells. Both languages are impossible for modern humans to learn.

* Magic in ''Webcomic/{{Heartcore}}'' relies on incantations to activate. Simple spells such as Ame's Fireball attack need only [[CallingYourAttacks the spell's name]] to be used, while more powerful spells such as the Devil Drive require longer incantations.
