** It literally depends on the caster's sense of humor because for safety reasons spells are explicitly either made up words or in languages the wizard ''doesn't'' speak.

** It For creating an iceberg he uses "Rexus Mundus." ([[Film/{{Titanic}} "King of the World"]])
** For creating illusionary duplicates, "Lumen, camerus, factum!" ("Lights, camera, action!")

* These are rife in ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}''; a cure spell is the names of the members of TheCure, a [[GeoEffects Dirt]][[DishingOutDirt amancy]] spell is the same except with famously "dirty" athletes, [[ShockAndAwe Shock]][[StandardStatusEffects amancy]] spells are usually ShockSite names, with Hat Magic you say "Hoffa" to make something disappear and "Livingston" to make it appear again, [[Film/TheReturnOfTheLivingDead "Trioxin"]] is used by [[{{Necromancy}} Croak]][[WhateverMancy amancers]] to raise the dead, and so on...

Added DiffLines:

* In one issue of NewMutants, the girls are having a sleepover with several of their regular friends. During a pretend seance, Ilyana uses the incantation from Bullwinkle (see below) with Dani providing some special effects.

* In [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons D&D 3.5]], the Factotum class are {{Badass Bookworm}}s whose mastery of the IndyPloy, ImprovFu, AwesomeByAnalysis, and ButIReadABookAboutIt makes them the ClosestThingWeGot to any other class. One of the many abilities that this imparts is the ability to ''weaponize'' this trope: The official class profile states that the factotum has discovered that [[SomethingSomethingLeonardBernstein by muttering vaguely arcane-sounding gibberish]] and waving their hands in rough approximations of what spellcasters do, they are able to cast a few spells per day without the need for little details like actually knowing what they're doing.
