* In Dan Simmons' ''Summer of Night'' the [[ArtifactOfDoom Borgia Bell]] is said to have been created from Earth and Air (a meteor fallen to Earth) and can only be prophesied to be destroyed by the pther two Classic elements, Water and Fire. So the heroes use a tank truck filled with gasoline, a flammable liquid. They also bring holy water just in case though.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': The summon Onni sends to the crew long-distance in Chapter 13 is implied to need a source of fire to be able to show up at its destination. The hint towards this is that it shows up via Emil's flamethrower.

* Post-Big Uneasy, the world of ''Literature/DanShambleZombiePI'' is full of this trope: modern-day vampires wearing sunscreen and buying expired donor blood, werewolves using giant hairdryers, etc.

* Post-Big Uneasy, the world of ''Literature/DanShambleZombiePI'' is full of this trope: modern-day vampires wearing sunscreen and buying expired donor blood, werewolves using giant hairdryers, etc. Some technologies have been devised specifically ''because'' of magic, such as the "Necro-Centrifuge" that can separate wood ash from vampire remains, in the event a vampire-killer's choice of wood for the stake is relevant to securing a murder conviction.

* The ''YoungWizards'' books do this a lot: car antennas as wands, spells that use batteries and sugar cubes, and spellbooks uploaded onto computers.

* ''Fanfic/ToTheStars'' takes the mild version of this trope in its source material UpToEleven, combining {{Magical Girl}}s with [[SpaceOpera space-age technology]]. Their [[SoulJar soul gems]], normally a [[AttackItsWeakPoint serious weak point]], get high-tech armor and decoys. A complicated system of robots and auto-dispensers distributes the "grief cubes" magical characters use to replenish their mana/life-force, making the once-common [[CastFromHitPoints death by running out of magic]] almost unheard of. If their body gets destroyed or severely damaged, they can simply [[BodyBackupDrive transfer to their clone body]]. Even so, no real scientific understanding of magic has been achieved--after all, even the [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien incubators]] don't get it--but it gets all that fancy augmentation because magic is humanity's only real edge against [[AliensAreBastards the alien invaders]].
