* {{Magneto}}. Scientists also promptly said his powers wouldn't work that well due to the Third Law of Motion - to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, thus while lifting a battleship weighting tens of thousands of tons the mutant would also be attracted to it like a fridge magnet...

* ''{{Kinnikuman}}''. Dream Tag Tournament's tag team of Neptuneman and Big the Budo and their spammy Magnet Power. More powerful displays DO attract any and all nearby metal... but they all seem to go towards the designated target, rather than the origin, there the force is at its strongest.
* Eustass "Captain" Kid of ''OnePiece'' has this as his Devil Fruit power. Thus far his powers seem limited to the basic 'attract' or 'repel' rather than full-on metal telekinesis ala Magneto.

* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', during the Stands arc, one of the villains has a stand that makes people magnetic. This has no ill effect on his own (it should, as magnetism is not exactly healthy), but attracts metallic objects at a fastly growing rate. To make thinks more dire, two different protagonist are charged with opposite poles, so they are strongly attracted each the other. While it's mostly realistic, somehow the protagonists are able to attract objects way heavier that themselves, instead of being attracted to them.
* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': [[{{Robeast}} Mechanical Beast]] Bazil F7 was armed with magnetically-charged armor plates that could be detached off its body and launched at its adversary (with the purpose of sticking to it and disrupting their mechanisms). However the magnets did not attract other objects when they were working, and they stuck to [[HumongousMecha Mazinger-Z]] and [[FemBot Aphrodite-A]] in spite of they are not made of steel to begin with.

* The rifts in ''{{Primeval}}'', which produce a strong magnetic force when the writers remember that they do. Doesn't affect technology (they send a robot through at one point.) Just occasionally attracts things.

* ''[[{{Terminator}} Terminator III]]'' had John Conner use a magnetic coil against the Terminatrix, which dragged the gun out of his hand, but they seemed unaffected by anything else on their bodies, like belt buckles or zippers. It might work, however, if they're made of non-ferromagnetic metals, such as brass or aluminium.

* The eponymous hero from ''TheReturnOfCaptainInvincible'' has this power, but he hasn't used it for decades and it seldom works as intended.
* Justified as an actual clue in ''The Raven'' (2012), in which Fields discovers that a hair from a crime scene is strangely attracted to a magnet. [[spoiler: That's because the culprit was a newspaperman, and there were traces of iron-based printer's ink on the hair.]]

* In ''Film/ThisIslandEarth'' Exeter tells Cal and Ruth their hands become stuck to metal supports because the supports are magnetized. When the film was shown in ''MysteryScienceTheater3000'' ''TheMovie'', Mike noted "if your hands were metal that would mean something."

* In ''{{Lost}}'', where Sayid is shown pounding away on a concrete wall with a metal strut. Jack wanders by and demonstrates that whatever is behind the wall is extremely magnetic, to which Sayid responds that he is glad the strut is made of titanium, which has very little magnetic attraction to the wall
