* Actually used properly in ''VideoGame/{{Silent Hill 1}}'' when Dahlia mentions an event being "foretold by gyromancy". However, it leads to some heavy {{Narm}} when you learn what gyromancy ''is''... According to TheOtherWiki, gyromancy entails either spinning inside, or walking the circumference of, a circle drawn on the ground, with letters marking the rim, and the divination comes from when the spinner/walker stumbles over a letter. Repeat ad nauseum until a coherent sentence is formed.

** Early on, Necromancer was a starting class with high Magic. However, the game lacks any necromancy available to the player and later abolished the class system. It's now unlikely that the player will ever be able to use necromancy.
