* Fighters in DragonBallZ can detect the use of ki from others, as well as [[TheForceIsStrongWithThisOne potential]], though that can also be concealed. Freezer's army cannot, but they have special sensors for that. They also apparently had [[EarthIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse never encountered anyone capable of either feat]], because Vegeta and Nappa are surprised by it; Vegeta eventually destroys his sensor, since it's useless against those foes and [[InstantExpert he's starting to learn how to sense ki, anyways]]. Later, during the series' stint in Namek, he keeps perfecting that technique. He detects Krilin and Gohan, who are hiding a [[PlotCoupon dragon ball]] from him, but a whale-like thing jumps up nearby and he reasons he must have detected that. He also starts learning how to conceal his ki, keeping it nearby his former power level, to get the drop on the rest of [[RedShirtArmy the army]] and [[EliteMook the generals]].

** Female channelers can sense the ability to channel in each other, even if neither is actually touching the True Source at the time, although they do have to be quite close. Once they're touching the True Source they literally light up like beacons - another female channeler will, when sufficiently experienced, be able to see a glow around a woman who's holding or using the Power. However, they are complete unable to sense when a man is channeling or holding the Power, at least until his spell takes effect.

** Men, on the other hand, can't identify another man who can channel unless he's holding the Power, and even their sense of that is much less precise than the sense women have of each other. This is probably related to the role of female channelers as the catalyst for linking strength - men cannot link without women involved, but women can link without men.

* Raven from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' can "taste" magic through his ears, and analyze the nature and power of the spell by the "flavor" of the magic, because he is [[DivineParentage half-Immortal]].

* Wizards in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' can use their True Sight to see exactly what is going on. The Sight shows ''everything'' that's happening, in excruciating and often maddening detail, and one of the things that can be Seen is the residue of magic that has been used recently.

Magical practitioners can also detect each other when they touch, meaning a practitoner hiding that ability needs an excuse to avoid shaking hands.
