* ''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.

* ''Fanfic/DungeonKeeperAmi'': As a crossover ''FanFic/ElementalsOfHarmony'':
** 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

* ''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".

Matt Cavotta gives us the scoop on Magic's 'mancers [[http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtgcom/daily/mc63 here]].
