* Ancient magical races in ''Literature/SecretCity'' laughed their asses, when humanity after conquering the Earth from them mostly refused to use magic. After first science successes they couldn't hold back giggles, but shortly after they were amused and then <i>excited</i> by modern technologies. Need to get rid of ancient monster? Use satellite with magic scanner and then kill it with enchanted chainsaw. Want to get from Moscow to New-York? Our company has no permanent portal to it yet, please, pay extra fee for GPS-targeting. Spell, you're working on, is too complicated? You can 3d-model it with our newest software. Two agencies upholding Masquerade actually depend on modern technologies, and one of them is also one of the largest media and Internet companies, providing full spectrum of services to mages' populace.

** The system here was basically written so this trope could be had fun with; magic in the setting ''must'' have a loophole of some kind to work at all, so wizards from ye olden times dealt with their requirement of a weakness by making their loopholes seemingly impossible... but modern technology can do quite a bit of things that were considered impossible centuries ago.

* Years ago, Ai Ebihara got requests for her job as ''Anime/HellGirl'' by mail. Nowadays, she has her own website that you send your request on. Her computer looks rather out of place in the old Japanese hut she lives in.

** The ''Analects Arcane'' column in Steve Jackson Games' online ''d20 Magazine'', which usually showcased spellbooks from a vague MedievalEuropeanFantasy setting, had three very different Post-Modern Magik spellbooks: ''The Arcane-ist's Cookbook'' (a wodge of computer printout using magic to "hack" technology, which has the same questionable accuracy as [[Literature/TheAnarchistsCookbook its inspiration]]); ''The Technonomicon'' (laid out like an engineering textbook, describes techno-magic in matter-of-fact terms); and ''The Tooninomicon'' (based on a young mage's theory that ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve applies to pop culture, contains spells that duplicate the abilities of ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' characters).

***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]].

* In "Literature/TheForsakenChildren", this pops up a lot. For example, satyrs were originally similar to most portrayals (pan flutes, wine, frolicking in fields and having wild sex), but with the advent of electro and dub-step, they've become full on ravers.

* Part of the premise of ''Webcomic/BloodyUrban'' is that it shows the ways that monsters fit into a version of the modern world that considers them completely normal, so it includes things like ghouls eating rotten meat out of supermarket dumpsters and vampires putting human hearts into their nutri-bullets.
