** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* The main character from the Fox animated series ''WesternAnimation/TheMagician'' is one of these, though he may have legitimate magic powers in addition to his StageMagician ones, the show isn't really clear on this point.

Their television show ''Series/PennAndTellerBullshit'' also frequently provided insight into various industries, covering everything from karate schools to New Age medicine, and how a lot of trickery and "stage magic" went into making claims seem more impressive than they actually were.
