* ''Fanfic/TheSageDisciple'' has the aforementioned disciple identifying his master's runic magic as Primordial Runes - something many Magi would kill or sell their entire bloodline to learn just one of. Caster applied one of these to his disciple's jacket to keep him warm because it was cold and later makes an icebox with the same method. Crow finds the situation hysterical.

* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5536346/1/Inviolate Inviolate]]'', ComicBook/LexLuthor has this to say about his sonic weapon:
-->"I've never actually hit anyone with it at level ten, but I tried it on a steak once. Vibrated the thing so hard the meat not only cooked to medium rare, but I ended up with quite possibly the most tender cut of beef you could imagine as the connective tissues and bones were practically liquefied. I could cut it with a plastic fork. Can you imagine what it would do to a human body?"
** He also has an energy-efficient teleportation device that can also be used as a microscope, telescope, MRI, scrying device, and video phone.

* In another story (I don't remember which), Harry was sent to Azkaban before his innocence was finally proven, and he swore never to return to Britain until all the people that voted for his imprisonement were dead, too. When that happens, he sets out to kill Voldemort and the Death Eaters... and uses his magic as "special effects" to make a film, using Voldemort as the bad guy. It becomes a relatively low-budget film with special effects that [=ILM=] would ''kill'' to have, and he and Remus make money hand over fist with that film and the next three. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny It also credits "Tom Riddle" as a stuntman in all four films, and he decides not to return after the fourth]].

* "Fanfic/SolaereSsiunHnaifvdaenn": A mighty ''D'deridex''-class warbird, repurposed as an armed freighter delivering medical supplies. {{Justified}} in that the region is a little chaotic right now: The plague-ridden planet Glintara is no longer a member of the Romulan Star Empire, but they're independent from the Federation and Romulan Republic as well, and there's been sightings of SpacePirates in the area. And really, in the canon shows the ''Enterprise'' had to do that kind of cargo mission all the time.
