* Zigzagged in ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIX'', classes like the Warrior and Gladiator never learn any spells. however, the JobSystem lets you keep the passive stat boosts earned from one job to another, so a warrior ''can'' end up being a powerful mage.

** In games where you have control over the PlayerCharacter's stats, it's possible to have a build that's heavily biased towards Strength and/or Dexterity, resulting in a fighter who's great with Physical and Gun skills but lousy at magic damage.

* In the ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' series, all characters have a Strength stat for determining damage with physical weapons and speed penalties from equipping a heavy weapon, and a Magic stat for determining damage with magic tomes and magic weapons, and effectiveness with healing staves. While tome users have enough Strength to squeak by without speed penalties, expect weapon users to have such pitifully low Magic that they'll do laughable damage with the few magic weapons you do get. Even in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Awakening]]'' onward, where MagicKnight classes are more common, the only characters who are able to consistently wield both steel and magic without any problems (low stat growth in one area, poor weapon levels, late jointime) are ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemRadiantDawn Radiant Dawn]]''[='=]s Elincia and ''Awakening''[='=]s Robin.

* ''MassEffect3'' introduce a weight stat to your equipped weapons. The heavier the weapon, the longer your biotic and tech abilities take to recharge. This meant that the better armed the character was, the less well they could use their powers.

* Earth Demons and Jakkai from Webcomic/SlightlyDamned have the lowest magical ability of any race, the jakkai can only learn one (maybe two spells if lucky) in their life but are much stronger and faster than humans [[PintsizedPowerhouse despite their small size]] and earth demons are only capable of learning a single basic earth spell but are 12-14ft tall behemoths with immense physical power, however it is actually somewhat zig-zagged since while earth demons can only learn one spell their raw might gives that one spell devastating power.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K''. Khorne, Chaos god of war, sees magic as a tool for cowards and traitors, and so is the only one without a list of spells, but his followers are very strong physical fighters (when not TheBerserker), and his 40K champion is immune to magic. Magical items and weapons, however, are acceptable.

* Aster in ''Black Clover'' has [[{{Unsorcerer}} zero magical ability]] in a setting where nearly everyone has at least some magic. To compensate, he spent most of his life training his body. This all pays off when he is chosen by the Five-Leaf Grimoire. Said Grimoire allows him to summon an AntiMagic {{BFS}}, and his years of physical training made him strong enough to effectively wield the heavy weapon.
