* In TheSecretWorld, every PlayerCharacter uses their weapons as a kind of magic wand, overlapping with this and KiAttacks. Oh, and it's modern-day UrbanFantasy, and an [[MoreDakka Assault Rifle]] or [[GunFu pair of pistols]] conducts magic just as easily as a sword or traditional magic focus.

* In the stop-motion holiday special ''WesternAnimation/TheYearWithoutASantaClaus'', [[AnIcePerson Snow Miser]] demonstrates that he can turn objects into snow by touching them. (Debatable whether this trope also applies to his brother Heat Miser, as melting things with a touch is changing what ''state of matter'' they're in, but not changing them into ''different'' matter.)

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/ThePracticeEffect'' has a setting in which this is the ''normal'' effect of touching - more specifically, using - an object: natural law causes inorganic things to become more fit for a specific use with continuous use, and to rapidly fall apart from lack of use. The setting's "magic touch" is at base the power to ''prevent'' this: equally valuable, as a law of diminishing returns on "exercise" otherwise limit the complexity of tools and technology level which can exist.

* In ''EternalDarkness'', you learn the "Enchant Item" spell quite early on. While it can be used to power up weapons, it's also used to repair broken (by plot events only) items and at one point near the end [[spoiler: make a C4 bomb powerful enough to destroy some catacombs full of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s.]]

** One animated sketch featured King Minus, who would make things disappear whenever he touched them. The sketch ends with him accidentally making the princess he was trying to rescue vanish.

He tries to share his newfound power with his friends by turning their favorite things into cookies, which doesn't bode well with them. He soon finds out he has another disadvantage when he wants to eat something other than cookies.

* ComicBook/{{Gambit}} of the ''Comicbook/XMen'' has the ability to turn anything he touches into an explosive. Although he prefers to [[DeathDealer charge and flick playing cards]] at his opponent. The ComicBook/UltimateXMen version claims that he joined Fenris because he was losing control of his powers (basically an even suckier version of Midas since all the food he touches turns into a ''bomb'') and their experiments stabilized him.
