** The novels of the ''Literature/ElementalMasters'' series have elements of this. For example, the lead of ''The Serpent's Shadow'', Dr. Maya Witherspoon, uses her largely untrained healing perceptions to help determine the effectiveness of new medical concepts like electrical stimulation and antiseptic surgery; in addition to using her knowledge of anatomy and the actual progression of tuberculosis to efficiently cure it via magic.

** Mercedes Lackey loves this trope. In ''Sacred Ground'', the very first page mentions that the "sweatlodge" Jennifer uses for her ritual purposes is a modern electrically-heated sauna, and Jennifer's grandfather makes the point very clearly that the specifics of the ritual materials are irrelevant next to the essence of the magic.

* 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.
