* ''{{Franchise/Buildingverse}}'' works occasionally dabble in this trope. The most widespread is the idea that even ''the'' most powerful supernatural forces have mobile phones, from [[{{Webcomic/Roommates}} angels]] to [[Fanfic/OnlyADream fairy queens]], but there is also [[Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor travelling through phone-lines]] and other examples.

* ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'': Take the [[HeadlessHorseman Dullahan.]] Without a head, it cannot speak. Imagine the horror, the isolation, the depths such a being would go being separated in communication from humanity...or you could give one a cell phone, a data plan, and an message board membership.

*** Though newer entries to the Nasuverse are starting to incorporate both this and {{Magitek}}, with things like hacker magi in [[FateEXTRA Fate/EXTRA]], Caster's original Master in the [[Anime/FateStayNightUnlimitedBladeWorks 2014 UBW anime]] incorporating machinery and tablets into his Workshop, and just about everything regarding the [[VideoGame/FateGrandOrder Chaldea Security Organization]] and newer depictions of [[VideoGame/MeltyBlood the Atlas Institute]].

Added DiffLines:

* Shikabane-hime in ''Anime/{{Corpse Princess}}'' mostly use guns, which may be enchanted. Their contracted monks use ''zadan'', a sort of Buddhist-flavoured magic with a variety of effects that include healing, repelling shikabane, purifying the ground... or in the case of Sadahiro and Akira, powering up the gun to incredible levels.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/DanceoftheButterfly'' takes place in our contemporary world. The demon hunters equip themselves with modern firearms, using bullets "imbued" with special qualities to be more effective against their supernatural opponents. This is depicted as a tracer-like illumination when they are fired.

** ''Reign of Winter'' includes a portion where BabaYaga is captured by her renegade son [[spoiler:Grigori Rasputin]] and imprisoned in 20th century Russia.

BabaYaga herself is kept in an arcane prison powered by electricity.
