* ''[[DefenseOfTheAncients Dota 2]]'' has a literal Reverse Polarity spell, which sucks opponents in and stuns them. This spell is used by a nonmagical rhino warrior from a tribal society. How or why Magnus can "alter the properties of matter" is not explained, although it's implied that his horn has something to do with it.

* In the 1960's ''Series/{{Batman}}'' episode "Better Luck Next Time", Batman reverses the polarity on his belt communicator in order to create an ultrasonic signal to drive away a tiger. It was shown on March 17th, 1966, thus preceding both both the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' and ''Film/BatmanTheMovie'' examples.

* ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'':
** In the episode "Opposites Attract", the [[RoBeast magnet-themed]] ''monster'' did this trick to sabotage the Rangers' weapons. He could also cause a "polarity switch" for individual people and Angel Grove as a whole. What this actually meant apparently involved a ScreenShake and some storm effects.
** In a later episode, Zordon commands Billy to reverse the polarity of a ''cloud''. To make it rain. And it works.



* ''Series/TheOuterLimits1963'' episode "The Borderland". During the experiments to reach the other dimension, the scientists reverse the polarity of a magnetic field in order to send objects to the other side and reverse them. Since the episode was first aired on December 10th, 1963, it predates all other known examples.
