** Hippiemancy seems unsuited to the [[ForeverWar world of Erf]], being a discipline dedicated to pacifism, peace, and love itself. However, they can force units to not fight each other, or, with sufficient skill, protect ''themselves'' from harm. Also included in the broad discipline of Hippiemancy is command over [[GreenThumb Flower Power,]] making them expert poisoners and dealers of some ''nasty'' drugs if they so choose.

* ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'':
** "[[{{Whatevermancy}} Turnamancers]]" have power over [[TurnBasedStrategy turns]], but can also [[HeelFaceTurn turn]] [[FaceHeelTurn units]].
** Shockamancy is the magic of both electricity and any sort of surprise, including the [[ShowSomeLeg Flash Mob]] ability the [[AmazonBrigade Archons]] use.

* ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'':
''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'': This is more or less how magic ''works'' in Erfworld, and there are [[{{Whatevermancy}} many different disciplines]]. If you can think of a way to tie the wording of the task you want accomplished to that of your magic discipline, it can probably be done.
** "[[{{Whatevermancy}} Turnamancers]]" have power over [[TurnBasedStrategy turns]], but can enabling them to reduce the [[RPGMechanicsVerse number of turns required to pop units.]] However, they are also responsible for [[HeelFaceTurn turn]] [[FaceHeelTurn units]].

** Shockamancy is the magic of both electricity and any sort of surprise, including the [[ShowSomeLeg Flash Mob]] ability the [[AmazonBrigade Archons]] use. Shockamancy is also where most straightforwardly-offensive magic spells come from, [[ShockSite because, well...]]

* In ''{{Tsukihime}}'' and ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' there exist the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception which allow you to see the "lines of death" of objects, which cause the object to be destroyed when cut. This has been applied not only to destroy inanimate objects and mortal beings but also numerous immortals, poisons, telekinetic attacks and barriers and even space. The concept of death is stretched to tbe point where it is said that by the end of ''Kara no Kyoukai'' [[spoiler: Shiki at full power is basically a god.]]

* ''Webcomic/CucumberQuest'': Rosemaster has the power to control (to a limited extent) anyone with a flower-based name. This works great in the Flower Kingdom, where she erases everyone's memories of the princess that the heroes need to complete their quest. But she doesn't just have power over standard flowers; Cucumber, Almond, and Carrot are all susceptible to her power as well. This is why she kidnaps Nautilus and erases their memories of her. [[spoiler:This gets derailed when Rosemaster kidnaps Peridot (her own ally) and erases everyone's memories of her. Peridot is so pissed off that [[ToyShip Almond]] doesn't remember her that she destroys Rosemaster's memory machine]].

** Paisley Park, with the Stand of [[spoiler:Yasuho Hirose]], from the same part. It possesses the power of "guidance", which has been used to organize internet search and GPS... or to give others a presentiment to push them ''exactly'' where they should be.
