* ''Film/NowYouSeeMe'' is about stage magicians who work grand thefts into their act... forcing investigators to find out how the hell they manage their tricks so they can actually prove it. Thaddeus Bradley, skeptic magician debunker, is not himself a detective, but he is called in as a consultant by the investigators.

** Yoichi Takato, Kindaichi's ArchNemesis is a unique subversion of this. He's an aspiring magician [[spoiler:who learned a few magic tricks from his mother and a lot more from his teacher abroad who became a murderer after finding out that his mother had been killed by her greedy disciples]]. After his debut, he created a lot of impossible murder cases which confuse Kindaichi and police. A straighter example comes from a spin-off ''Takato Shōnen no Jikenbo'' where he had to solve a murder case when he was in high school. In this time, he was shown giving street magic Performance in a public park.
* A unique variation comes from Yusho Sakaki, an Entertainment Duelist in Anime/YuGiOhArcV. His deck contains spellcaster monster and a few spell[=/=]trap cards related with street magic Performance and psychic ability, giving him the magician motif. He's also good at deducing his opponent's strategy based on his[=/=]her reaction and words. A good example is how [[spoiler:he manages to deduce Yuri's strategy on the first turn and take a short advantage of it]]. There's a reason why he's a Champion duelist.
