* Early on in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Negi has to inform Asuna that her pop-culture expectations of magic (stuff like trees that grow money, etc.) isn't how magic actually works. There's also a section of the series dealing with differences between western mages and [[{{Onmyodo}} eastern mages]].

* Telemain from the EnchantedForestChronicles frequently gets mistaken for a wizard (who only knows one type of magic) when he is infact a magician ([[SufficientlyAnalyzedMagic who studies many kinds of magic]]) albeit one who is particularly interested in finding out how wizard magic works and interacts with other types of magic. Also, nobody likes wizards in that series, and with good reason.

* Uncommon but still present in WorldOfWarcraft. Mages, how many times have you been asked for a soulstone or summon? Warlocks, how many times have you been asked for a portal or food and water? Come on, we all know it's happened at least once.

* TheVentureBrothers: After [[spoiler: 24's death, 21]] asks Doctor Orpheus, a self-proclaimed {{Necromancer}}, to resurrect him, stating "That is the definition of what you do!" Orpheus explains the "Necromancer" title really only exists because the other words for his craft all sound silly by modern standards. However, this contradicts his efforts to resurrect the Venture brothers at the beginning of season two.

* Comes up in ''{{Unskippable}}'' with a mock conversation complaining about the weather and that the mage can't change it, and pointing out that Steve could do it. The retort is that Steve's a weather mage, so of course he could.

* One MercedesLackey story (starring [[Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar Tarma and Kethry]]) features an unusual variant where the one suffering misconceptions ''is'' the Mage; the antagonist has a very weak mage Talent, which means she can only handle a limited amount of raw power and is innately incapable of working many powerful magics. She just isn't very ''good'' at magic either. Yet she is thoroughly deluded that power and skill are irrelevant, and all one actually needs to become a full Adept is ''knowledge''. She becomes obsessed with the idea that her teachers are keeping "the secret" of full Adepthood from her, and goes thoroughly crazy.

* In the {{Dragonlance}} setting there are four types of magic, Wizardry (sometimes called High Sorcery, and draws from the world's three moons), Clerical Magic (Magic granted by the gods), Primal/Wild Sorcery(which draws from the planet Krynn itself) and Mysticism (which comes from all living things). The former two are called "Focused" magic, while the latter two are called "Ambient" magic. The first two are called Focused because they are [[ShapedLikeItSelf focused]] through either the Moons or through a god, where as Ambient magic comes from Krynn itself and the living things on it. Mistaking a Wizard for a Sorcerer might annoy them a little bit. Mystics and Clerics tend to get along better.

* In [[http://oglaf.com/overbite/1/ this]] ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' comic a magician is called upon to use his magic to defend the town from a monster, and explains that he's a dentist wizard. Fortunately, it turns out that's exactly what the monster needs.

* The witches of ''Pinball/{{Seawitch}}'' do not confirm with any of the conventional trappings of witches -- there are no broomsticks, pointy hats, or black cats, just two {{Hot Witch}}es battling each other in {{Chainmail Bikini}}s.

* The ''[[GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse Global Guardians]]'' master-villain known as the Empress was a hugely powerful wizard... as long as you needed a charm that let you control someone else's mind, altered the perceptions of other people to make them see what you wanted them to see, become invisible, read their mind, and other mental effects. If you wanted to blast a robot with a mystic bolt of lightning, you were better of asking someone else.
