** In The fifth book, ''Foxglove Summer'', it is revealed that part of Nightingale's dismay comes from it being that line of thinking taken up by ThoseWackyNazis and the {{Ghostapo}} during WW2, which led all sorts of atrocities and the virtual extinguishment of magic in the world at Ettersberg.

* One SFW page of the often NSFW ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'', [[http://oglaf.com/double-blind/ Double Blind]]. A man is traveling from oracle to oracle, asking them what picture is contained within a sealed envelope, so he can record and rate the answers for future travelers.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheMachineriesOfEmpire'', the RealityWarping properties of the calendar are so well-understood, the scientists are capable of creating theoretical models and predicting what kind of exotics would result from what calendars, and the entire calendric science is simply a branch of mathematics.

Added DiffLines:

* The Literature/LandOfOz series uses magic this way, especially in the later Baum novels. One character in ''Literature/ThePatchworkGirlOfOz'' goes so far as to describe Oz as a place "where magic is a science."

Added DiffLines:

* The entire premise of the ''VideoGame/OpenSorcery'' world is that tech-mages called open sorcerers are busily analyzing magic and have discovered ways to use code to harness it.
-->'''High Sysadmin Ada Lovelace''': The spiritual world is like a black box program whose API is completely undocumented.

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' it is revealed that [[spoiler:the technologically advanced Kingdom Of Marley has an entire research institute dedicated to study the Titans and their powers, they can produce industrial level quantities of the serum used to transform Eldians into mindless Titans, even knowing to adjust the dosage to produce a specific class of Titan, they also make use of blood tests to determine if someone has Eldian ancestry and thus susceptible of turning into a Titan; Then there's the "Warrior" military program which is implied to follow [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness strict rules and protocols]] to pass the Titan powers among their members without risking them to fall outside of Marleyan control]].

** Charlotte, one of the two player characters in VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin, is a powerful sorceress that owes her skill to constant study. She describes magic, either Dracula's, her own, or otherwise, with the kind of detail and technical lingo you'd expect from a scientist explaining her craft (early in the game, she explains the villain is controlling the castle's magic with "multilayer quantum-space barriers", based on the "Theory of Curse Amplification"). However, she doesn't elaborate too much on the terms she uses, so her explanations sometimes graze the line of Main/AWizardDidIt. This is somewhat justified because most of the time, she's explaining this to [[BookDumb Jonathan]], a warrior by trade who's not nearly as well versed in magic as she is. However, this trope is also zig-zagged, as there's magic in the story ([[OurGhostsAreDifferent specially]] [[SpiritAdvisor Wind]]'s) that even she can't justify or comprehend, because, well, [[AWizardDidIt it's magic, after all]], but also because she's still young and, despite being a prodigy, is still lacking experience.

** The eponymous [[CastlevaniaOrderOfEcclesia Order of Ecclesia]] is the last of several groups of dedicated scholars founded in the 19th century to find new ways of defeating Dracula in the absence of the Belmont family line through diligent study. They finally succeeded in creating such a way, [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Dominus]], right before one of the members, named Albus, goes rogue and steals it, kicking off the plot. [[spoiler The "analyzed" part kicks into full gear when its revealed that [[EvilIsNotAToy all that research with Dracula's magic drove Barlowe, the Order's founder, mad]], resulting in him designing Dominus to free Dracula instead of destroying him for good. As it turns out, Albus found this out and stole Dominus so he could find a way to make it actually work against Dracula. This ]]
