* ''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.

* ''VideoGame/GuildWars'' and ''VideoGame/GuildWars2'' call an [[ElementalPowers Elementalist]], who specializes in one specific [[FourElementEnsemble Element]] a [[PlayingWithFire Pyromancer]], [[BlowYouAway Aeromancer]], [[DishingOutDirt Geomancer]] or [[MakingASplash Aquamancer]]. Furthermore the players call an Elementalist, who specializes in casting lots of auras (lots of positive effects at once) an auramancer.

** 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''." Or alternitavely, from "occulus" meaning "eye".

-> The word "urbanomancer" combines Greek and Latin, which annoys grammarians and old-school occultists. Most urbanomancers couldn't care less, and think the correct term - "Polisurgist" - sounds dumb.

* ''TabletopGame/LegendOfTheFiveRings'' doesn't specifically use the -mancy/-mancer suffixes for its magic-users, but could justifiably do so: rather than directly creating the effects, the Shugenja talks to the relevant spirits (fire/water/earth/whatever) and asks them to (cause a fireball/heal someone/strengthen a weapon/summon CaptainPlanet).
