* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'': Hino Rei uses Pyromancy, which is termed fire-reading, but is the same thing. Scrying by fire.



* ''Fanfic/DungeonKeeperAmi'': As a crossover with ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', Hino Rei can look into Adushul with her pyromancy.
** ''Fanfic/DungeonKeeperOfLoveAndJustice'': As a RecursiveFanfic of Fanfic/DungeonKeeperAmi, Hino Rei keeps her pyromancy.

** Pumpkin Cake is an ontolomancer. By altering the moment of OntologicalInertia, she can make intangible concepts "real enough to sit on", render herself [[PerceptionFilter totally unnoticable]], and undo spells by subjecting them to gradual existence failure.
** Laughter magic is also called thaliamancy, named after TheMuse of comedy. It's explicitly described as not making sense.
** At high enough levels, honesty magic, or alethiomancy, is inherently incompatible
with ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', Hino Rei can look into Adushul with her pyromancy.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'':
** The books have [[FormulaicMagic Arithmancy]], a class Hermione (and only Hermione) takes. This one is an accurate use of the suffix, though, as arithmancy is divination by numbers.[[note]]In real life it's an alternative, and not much used nowadays, term for numerology.[[/note]] Amusing when you consider that Hermione once stated that she considered divination to be very "woolly".

** Also, Legilimency and Occlumency, the arts of mind reading and blocking mind reading, respectively. Legilimency comes from Latin "''legens''" and "''mens''", which mean "reader" and "mind;" Occlumency, from "occlude," which means "conceal," and "''mens''."

* ''[TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering]'' is full of mancers, and while they do have their share of future-seeing mancers, most mancers use the "control whatever it is" version 'cause it's more fun (some, like Retromancer or Anathemancer, are a little shaky on even what their prefix means). Matt Cavotta gives us the scoop on Magic's 'mancers [[http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtgcom/daily/mc63 here]].

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Tariatla has "Taverncraft", which is an offshoot of "magecraft" otherwise known as "practical magic" (as opposed to "manaology" which is the academic study of {{mana}}). It is magic used by people who work in taverns to mix drinks (alcoholic and otherwise). They have magic spells and everything.

* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'': Spells that manipulate and create fire are all termed "pyromancy", though we never see a flame spell that actually has anything to do with divination. Strangely enough, the games' lore distinguishes between pyromancy and "flame sorcery", the latter of which was an art that died out with the Chaos Witches. How exactly flame sorcery was any different from pyromancy is unclear, except that it apparently used a staff as a catalyst (like regular sorcery) instead of a pyromancy flame.
