* In the ''Franchise/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' series, before they receive the magical geodes in ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsLegendOfEverfree Legend of Everfree]]'', the Rainbooms have little control over the magical remnant they received from the Element of Magic in the first movie. They have little control over it initially, and the effects tend to be random. At first they "pony up" when playing music in ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks Rainbow Rocks]]'', but an effort to invoke directly ThePowerOfFriendship falls flat. In ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames Friendship Games]]'' the magic manifests when they expresses their respective Element, but they take a while to realize it. Sunset Shimmer's attempt to analyze the magic scientifically in the short "[[WebAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGamesShorts The Science of Magic]]" results in a power outage, a deluge of apples, a rush of static-charged balloons, or a rainbow-colored splash of goo... and very little progress in comprehension.

->''"Magic can exist on its own, independent of any spell, such as the werelights in the bogs by Aroughs, the dream well in Maniís Caves in the Beor Mountains, and the floating crystal on Eoam. Wild magic such as this is treacherous, unpredictable, and often stronger than any we can cast."''

** Young unicorns can run the risk, when very startled, of their magic going out of control. When Twilight Sparkle (one of the most powerful in modern memory) got her Cutie Mark, her uncontrolled magic turned her parents into houseplants, turned a baby dragon into a giant dragon, and came close to leveling the royal palace. ''Baby'' unicorns are even worse in this regard, since their magic is incredibly strong but purely instinctive, and cannot be controlled by anyone -- especially not the baby. This is epitomized by Flurry Heart, a baby [[PhysicalGod ''alicorn'']] whose inherent magic is so strong -- and so prone to being released by emotional outbursts -- that she caused an ancient, powerful magical artifact to shatter into pieces ''entirely on accident''. It is unknown if this level of raw power remains in unicorns and alicorns when they grow older.

* Most magic in ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' is either rule magic or theurgic, but Lina's DangerousForbiddenTechnique is wild magic. The Giga Slave is a version of a powerful theurgic spell, modified to call upon Chaos itself. As Chaos is both powerful beyond everything, and [[CaptainObvious more than a little chaotic]], there's the minor problem that a miscast Giga Slave could destroy the entire universe. [[spoiler: Or not. The Lord of Nightmares is a very capricious being, and her mind always follows her power, so it really all depends on how she's feeling.]]

* Loki in ''Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard'' claimed that magic runs on [[TheoryOfNarrativeCausality story]] and so it has a will of its own, that series [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall leaned on the fourth wall]] very hard by the way.

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Chaos magic is basically energy from [[TopGod Lady Chaos]], who, as can be expected, has BlueAndOrangeMorality. Elven lore says that it deliberately backfired on [[spoiler: Dengel Tymh]] to teach him an object lesson in humility. It is impossible for any mage to successfully control [[spoiler: without becoming chaos themselves.]]

* In ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', Kite's Crazy Slots ability takes the form of a jester-like being that will spin a wheel on its tongue and turn into whatever weapon corresponds with that number. Crazy Slots has a mind of its own and honestly doesn't care much about Kite's well-being.

Crazy Slots has a mind of its own and honestly doesn't care much about Kite's well-being. Crazy Slots is notable for being a case of this trope in a series otherwise full of MagicAIsMagicA, though Kite designed this ability like this on purpose as he reasoned this lack of control means the ability must be stronger (and he's right).

* The spellcasters in the ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' series have limited control over what they cast at best, and their world is full of malicious spirits they ''really'' have no control over. Occasionally, their magic will transport them to some other country or some other planet, and they have to find a way back home. That being said, every time the heroes are transported elsewhere, it always eventually leads them to discover some OmnicidalManiac's apocalyptic plans, whom they must then defeat.

* In ''Roleplay/ThereIsNoGATEWeDidNotFightThere'', magic in this universe comes from a dimension of sheer chaos, referred to as the Maelstrom. Those who use magic either naturally "dive" into the Maelstrom and simply "grab" the energy they need, or use a rigid [[RitualMagic spell structure]] to more safely tap into their magic. Considered a safer version of the Warp from ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000''.
