The term for this when used for magic is SympatheticMagic, which operates on the principle that "like affects like." In many works featuring this magic, the magician often needs something that his or her victim once owned (such as fingernail clippings or a lock of his or her hair) in order for the RealityChangingMiniature to actually work. HollywoodVoodoo dolls tend to work this way. May be considered a variant of {{Synchronization}}.

* RobertRankin's ''Raiders of the Lost Car Park'' features a microcosm which is a perfect model of the room in which it is placed. It behaves in much the same manner as this page's illustration.

* The main mechanic in the horror game ''Kraven Manor.'' A model of the manor sits on a table in the entryway, and more models of rooms are uncovered as you explore. Putting down the rooms with the entryway model unlocks the room at that location, leading to some odd arrangements as a second-floor doorway leading downstairs into an underground cellar.

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'''s [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=40578 Ixidor, Reality Sculptor]] can pull off this trick as part of his [[MasterOfIllusion illusion magic]]. His preferred medium was to ''paint'' things which would become reality, although this could be tricky -- once, [[PowerIncontinence while he was new to this power]], he accidentally bled on his canvas and almost fell into the resulting sinkhole, and his personal castle ended up with AlienGeometries because he wasn't paying close enough attention to perspective ([[ThrowItIn although he decided he liked it]] and repainted some other parts to match).

* One of the ''{{Ranma}}'' movies features a pair of TabletopGame/{{Go}} players. As they play on the normal board giant stones appear and land on the giant board that surrounds them. They threaten to crush our hero, until he realizes that he can just run on top of the stones that have already fallen. Of course this means that he has now "disappeared" from the field of play, and his opponents can't find him.
