->''"Any SufficientlyAnalyzedMagic is indistinguishable from SCIENCE!"''
-->-- '''Agatha Heterodyne''', ''Webcomic/GirlGenius''

Advanced ubiquitous magic always seems to end up working just like technology. The car engine might be powered by a fire elemental, and the telephone may work through [[FunctionalMagic the principle of contagion]], but this doesn't affect the man on the street. They just get in the car and drive away, or pick up the phone and talk -- no special talent required, just as if the devices were technological.

Magitek (or 'magitech') often appears to combine magic with modern technology or at least something distinctively mechanical: [[SteamPunk traditional]] heat engine or an electrical generator powered by or powering a magic spell, or a [[HumongousMecha giant mecha]] that can inexplicably shoot ice from an empty hand. SufficientlyAnalyzedMagic frequently causes this, but isn't necessary, since a BlackBox is almost as good if it's reliable and cheap enough.

When {{Magitek}} is combined with [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism gritty realism]], we get DungeonPunk, but magitek is also common in comic fantasy. There are also some cases of technology based on sufficiently advanced magic, which is itself disguised sufficiently advanced technology. FantasticScience leads to this because it treats magic ''as'' science; something to be studied and learned and experimented with.

There is also the term Technomancy -- the school of magic that specializes in controlling or improving existing technology with magic. In these circumstances the machine would work ''without'' the magic, but magic improves it. That, or it possesses it...

With all that said, a sci-fi setting with no supernatural/fantasy elements could readily substitute actual magic with PsychicPowers in the equation, resulting in "Psytek".

The UrExample is Creator/RobertAHeinlein's 1940 novella ''Literature/MagicInc'' The story is an alternate reality where the 1940 USA is just like it really is, except that magic is real. For example, your taxi is likely to be a flying carpet, but otherwise the same (cabbie, meter, so on). The TropeNamer is ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', where the [[TheEmpire Gestahlian Empire]] had suits of PowerArmor, dozens of HumongousMecha, and fleets of [[ThoseMagnificentFlyingMachines Magnificent Flying Machines]], all powered by [[PoweredByAForsakenChild draining the life essence]] of enslaved magical creatures. [[{{Woolseyism}} Courtesy of Ted Woolsey's translations]], this fantastic science and the inventions using it became known under the blanket term "Magitek."

Not to be confused with the purely technical TechnoWizard. Compare ClarkesThirdLaw. Also, UtilityMagic, which can sometimes manifest as this. Contrast with MagicFromTechnology and PostModernMagik. See also HarmonyVersusDiscipline and RitualMagic.



* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', powers granted by the devil fruits are often used in very creative ways. Ace's sailboard is propelled thanks to his ability to generate flames, Captain Smoker's Blower Bike is powered by wind-catching wheels being blown by the smoke he generates, Mister 3's ship is also powered thanks to its owner's candle wax generating superpowers. Eneru supplies himself electicity used to fly his Ark Maxim. The dials (seashells that can store kinetic energy, sound, light, fire and anything else depending on the version) and transponder snails might be seen as this, but is most likely ''OrganicTechnology''. One Piece is a versatile manga indeed.
* In ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'', fossilized dragon hearts are dug up and used as a power source for the planet's HumongousMecha. Lord Dornkirk's technological empire seems almost entirely comprised of {{Magitek}} machinery.
** An early episode even featured a quarry for said dragon hearts that had its own HumongousMecha onsite...a [[MundaneUtility fossilized dragon heart-powered bulldozer.]]
** This is how [[spoiler: Dilandau used to be a little girl named Selena Schezar...and reverts to a female body at the end. Selena was kidnapped and used for "fate-alteration" experiments.]]
* Most of the technology in ''Manga/FairyTail'' is powered by magic, from cars and motorcycles to [[KillSat orbital laser satellites]].
* In Creator/HayaoMiyazaki's ''Anime/HowlsMovingCastle'', (and to a lesser extent Creator/DianaWynneJones's [[Literature/HowlsMovingCastle book of the same name]] on which it was loosely based) the structure is maintained by the wizard's magic. Moreover, the kingdoms of the world which the film takes place actively make use of witches and wizards to fight in wars, in addition to more standard weapons and tactics.
* Ami "Sailor Mercury" Mizuno of ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' owns a literal MagicalComputer -- disguised as a compact, it vanishes when she doesn't need it and can detect all manner of magical and mundane phenomena.
** In the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] it's actually just an interface for the actual supercomputer on the moon.
* The country/planet Autozahm from ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' is an entirely "mechanized" industrial power that runs on [[LifeEnergy "Mental Energy"]] instead of electricity; which has screwed up their environment in addition to sending them into comas. So they've sent an invasion force made up of a spaceship and HumongousMecha to take over the more classical magic system of Cephiro, which itself has 'rune gods' in the form of giant robots.
* ''Manga/{{MAR}}'' has [=ÄRMs=], magical jewelry with a variety of cool forms and abilities. Each ÄRM is a blueprint for a specific magical ability, such as summoning a giant guardian or [[WaveMotionGun shooting out huge beams of energy]] (in some cases, ''both''), among others. Justified since this gimmick is ''incredibly'' convenient, meaning that [=ÄRMs=] can be used by {{muggles}} for mundane activities.
* All over the place in the ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' universe, though most notable in the third season where this is lampshaded by Fate giving an AsYouKnow speech about how the TSAB's civilization literally discarded conventional technology because magic was more advanced and safer.
** Similarly, the [=StrikerS=] antagonist's primary cannon fodder consists of MechaMooks that are unique in Mid-Childa due to their lacking any magical capabilities at all and actively projecting fields that dampen magic around them.
** ''Force'', has villains who are somehow completely immune to magic, thus rendering all the protagonists' weapons and abilities useless in fighting them. They have to invent new weaponry that leans more toward tech than magic to get around this.
* In ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'', the magical system underlying existence is likened to computer code, and manipulated accordingly.
* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' technology seems to have been more or less fully integrated with magic. Magic Guns are considered antiques. The local RobotGirl runs partially on magic, and there's an entire Magic ''Internet'' that can be accessed by magic books ''or'' computers complete with program, hacking, and virus spells. Not to mention Magical Flying Warships such as the [[CoolShip Paru-sama]][[labelnote:Specification]]A Goldfish-Style Aerofish with a high-propulsion-pentagram-18-prayer-spirit engine and anti-pirate military-grade armaments[[/labelnote]]
** [[spoiler: In the end, humanity goes through a major magitek revolution, making it available to the general public and leading to colonization of the rest of the solar system getting very far underway by ''2017'']].
** The SequelSeries ''Manga/UQHolder'' follows up on this; the first chapter involves magical iPhone apps as a plot point.
* Both Washu and a later character in ''Anime/MagicalProjectS'' create and employ this.
* The seven Chaos Emeralds and the Master Emerald were described as magical in ''Anime/SonicX'' (and their effect on Sonic and Shadow could be said to be magic), yet were often used to power technology based equipment, such as Eggman’s robots, and the [[AbnormalAmmo Sonic Driver]].
* The Caster Gun in ''Manga/OutlawStar'' was created by wizards to allow people in an age of low mana to use spells. This is the most powerful weapon in both Gene Starwind and Ron [=MacDougall's=] arsenal.
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' brings this trope and its corollary round full-circle. In [=FMA=] the magic is the tech, and the tech is the magic. Specifically, look at the first chapter/first episode:
--> '''Al''': "It's not magic, it's science!"
** Meanwhile, the technology behind automail is handwaved. How do they have cybernetic prosthetic arms and legs when they're only at early 20th century tech?
** This follows a sub-troping principal that, as Magic becomes more and more understood and studied, it becomes more and more akin to science, gaining specific rules and methods, rather than just "duuuuur, MAGIC!"
* Opposing FMA, ''BusouRenkin'' uses {{Alchemy}} as basically a synonym for MagiTek. It is established early on that the rules for BusouRenkin is take an ordinary weapon, the lower-tech the better, and give it a magic power, i.e. rocket-propelled lance, [[PrecisionGuidedBoomerang Precision Guided Chakrams]], ect.
* ''UltraManiac'' featured witches using computers to create magic spells for them. This was apparently not the only way to do so, however -- the main character, Nina, pretty much relies on this method because her magic skills are so poor.
* Often shows up in works by YoshiyukiTomino, most obviously ''Anime/AuraBattlerDunbine''. Even the original ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', paragon of RealRobot-ness has it in the form of Psycommu weapons, though this may not technically qualify, as at the time it was made, many serious scientists were conducting research into PsychicPowers. But the fact that subsequent Gundam stories have continued to use the concept [[ScienceMarchesOn even after all the major psychic research was proved to be flawed or outright fraudulent]] places them firmly in Magitek territory.
* In ''LightNovel/YokuWakaruGendaiMahou'', the modern magic the series prides itself on draws heavily from this. Spells involve ''Matrix''-like lines of code, but people like Yumiko still use a magic staff.
* Present in varying degrees between the [[WitchSpecies witches and warlocks]] of ''Anime/TweenyWitches'': the female witches tend to a more primitive steampunk-style of magitech while the technologically advanced male "warlocks" now use very little magic at all (there's only one "real" warlock left, and he's very old).
* ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' heavily blurred the lines of magic and technology in the second half of the show. The main antagonists are cyborgs and are never stated to have any magical connections, but they can shapeshift, teleport and levitate, among other magical-type abilities.
** Many of the powerful magic users in earlier seasons such as Yugi, Pegasus, and Marik are able to channel supernatural powers through a collectible card game and the machinery and computers that run their holographic arenas as well.
* Magi in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and ''LightNovel/FateZero'' are generally averse to using technology in place of magic, which is the reason why [[CombatPragmatist Kiritsugu Emiya]] is considered a "Magic User" and not a "Magus" -- for example, his familiars are equipped with cameras so that they are not fooled by illusion magic, and his [[WeaponOfChoice Mystic]] [[MagicWand Code]] is a Thompson Contender which uses [[DepletedPhlebotinumShells bullets made from his powdered bones]] in order to destroy other magi's Magic Circuits and render them useless.
* ''Manga/BreakBlade'' features a world where any form of technology more complex than a hand tool involves the use of magic to manipulate quartz. The lead character is unique in that he ''can't'' use that magic, thus rendering even personal vehicles unusable to him.
%%* The ''RozenMaiden'' dolls.
* ''LightNovel/DemonKingDaimao'' has this in spades, from a quasi-robotic crow that sees your future (eliminating the need for a guidance counselor), to airships running off mana reactors, to [[spoiler: a god that's really an intensely complex computer system]].
* Alchemy seems to serve as the Magitek de jure of the ''Anime/QueensBlade'' universe, powering such things as the Hyper Vibration Armor or the automaton, Vingt.
* Daily life in ''LightNovel/ICouldntBecomeAHeroSoIReluctantlyDecidedToGetAJob'' is a lot like modern Japan, with [=TVs=], telephone, AC, etc. Except that the cars are monster drawn carriages, and everything runs off magic instead of electricity. Plus the demons, spells, and all the other fantasy touches.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/{{Planetary}}'''s The Drummer is a [[{{Technopath}} machine telepath]] who can sense magic; his explanation is that magic is "cheat codes" that manipulate the mechanics of existence.
* In ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'', Mr. Fantastic considers magic a science that simply works with a different set of rules (albeit rules he can't quite comprehend, so he might be totally wrong). SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom has occasionally integrated the talent for sorcery he inherited from his mother into his inventions and schemes.
* The miniseries 'Battlegods: Warriors of the Chaak' by Creator/DarkHorseComics has a futuristic Mayan take on this, such as cloned priests with their minds linked together to form a magical computer.
* The comic ComicBook/{{Hellboy}} has plenty of magical based technology.
* The ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' comic gives us the Iron Queen, a Technomage who can control the electrical impulses found in all active electronics and send him out at will. As you can imagine, she's quite dangerous to opponents who are [[HollywoodCyborg partly]] or completely robotic.
** Dr. Eggman, as a man of science, complains about [[GreenRocks Chaos Emeralds]] being their own explanation, and having no logic to their power. Snively reminds him that he powers his own technology with Chaos Emeralds on a regular basis; Eggman concedes, but points out that he doesn't have to ''like'' it.
** In ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehogMegaManWorldsCollide'', both Dr. Eggman and Dr. Wily come up with the [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure Chaos]] [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Devil]], stated to be a "fusion of magic and machine" (Chaos being a water god, Yellow Devil being a blob robot).
* The Creator/CrossGen series ''Mystic'' takes place in a world much like Earth, ca. TheRoaringTwenties, but with magic instead of technology. So you get Art Deco architecture paired with magical flying Model T-style taxicabs, for example.
** That's mostly the Nouveau Guild and their nation. Nouveau magic, as the name implies, runs on change, so coming up with new and interesting ways to use magic, and the corresponding changes in society, are what makes the magic work. Other nations on Cyress follow more stable systems of magic (barring [[CloudCuckooLand the Astral Guild]]) and don't have the {{Magitek}}.
* The manga series ''Orion'' by Creator/MasamuneShirow has a Hindu-Buddhist design style with elements of quantum physics and computer science. The universe in this setting is made from 'yingerons and yangerons' which function like the bits in a computer. Deities and elemental spirits are also made like this, but the two primary magic types are Naga-Rituals, which function by calling spirits and deities, and Psycho-Science, which functions using more direct access through written seals and Dharmaquations (a cross between FMA Transmutation Circles and Buddhist Mandalas).
* ''ComicBook/WizardsOfMickey'' has mages and dragons right alongside evil robotic armies and Goofy building a damn HumongousMecha.
* The powers of Creator/JackKirby's gods -- whether [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Asgard's "Old Gods"]] or the ComicBook/NewGods of New Genesis and Apokolips -- seem to transcend the limitations of both technology and magic. While implicit in Kirby's works, Creator/GrantMorrison made it fairly explicit in ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'' and other works. The powers of the New Gods transcend just about anything mortals -- even [[Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica the most powerful mortals on Earth]] -- can do.
* ComicBook/DeathsHead was created with a mixture of technology and magic, originally intended as a replacement body for his creator.
* It's a little unclear how much of ComicBook/{{Galactus}}' power comes from the Power Cosmic and how much comes from his very advanced technology. It's even less clear after he [[FusionDance merges]] with a swarm of [[KillerRobot Killer Robots]] that is his UltimateMarvel counterpart.
* Unlike most of the [[GreenLanternRing rings]] in the Franchise/GreenLantern mythos, which are MagicFromTechnology, those of the [[UnstoppableRage Red Lantern Corps]] mix this with BloodMagic, and as such have very different [[VomitIndiscretionShot methods of use]] and [[BeatStillMyHeart limitations]].
* The ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' villain Infidel uses magic to replicate technological functions, including audio/video recordings of events and artificial servants.
* In ''Comicbook/DCOneMillion'' the ancient Amazonian sorceress Magda says the difference between magic and science no longer exist in the 853rd century. "Let's just say, I can still cook."

[[folder: Fan Works]]
* In ''FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi'' Mercury's highly scientific approach to magic results in this. To date- giant scythe-wielding battle robots, airships, gem synthesizers, and [[NoKillLikeOverkill Chlorine Trifloride]].
* In ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'', the Fans operate via magitek, largely through computers.
* The entirety of [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/43509/outside-the-reaching-sky Outside The Reaching Sky]], in which the Ponies of Equestria launch an advanced space program after [[spoiler: encountering a human from a parallel universe who provides them with a computer core containing the entire conventional and magitechnological base of a highly advanced culture, plus the means to access it]].
* In the Alternate Ending of ''FanFic/FantasyOfUtterRidiculousness,'' [[spoiler: Coop combines Patchouli's [[AllYourPowersCombined "Philosopher's Stone"]] card with Megas's systems, creating his first and only bonafide Spell Card. The resulting multi-element attack blasts Suika across Misty Lake and demolishes most of the Scarlet Devil Mansion's library in one go.]]
* In ''FanFic/{{Emperor}}'', the Northern Kingdom's scientists collaborate with many wizards and witches to develop new ideas that mix magic and technology, such as [[spoiler:working ArtificialIntelligence, special cannons that can disintegrate their objective in one shot, and genetical grafting in adults]].
* In the ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'' story "Smurfette's Inner Beauty", Hogatha the witch uses a magic mirror social network called [[Website/{{Facebook}} Magebook]] in order to find a date.
* FanFic/AGrowingAffection has ninjas using cellular phone with jutsu built in so that rivals/enemies cannot trace them; Kakashi does not trust that is 100% effective. Also a minor character is a computer programmer asked to create a system to monitor chakra interactions.
* Almost everything in ''Fanfic/StarlightOverDetrot'' runs on Arcanoelectrics - a combination magic, runes and alchemy - from the automobiles to the toasters (that regularly turn toast blue).
* ''FanFic/AnISOTInGrimdark'' - after arriving into the WarhammerFantasy world, the German engineers quickly get to work on adapting their technology for the setting. They start off with a [[TheLittleDetecto "magic indicator"]] for detecting hidden magic users or potentially dangerous magical artifacts. It isn't long though before they start building [[spoiler:suits of PoweredArmor, and even using Magitek to power their ''manned space program'']].
* ''Fanfic/TheDuskGuardSaga'' has magical crystals that are used in everything from magilights to toys to armor to golems. However, enchanting all but the smallest and simplest of crystals is extremely dangerous and time-consuming, and as such, Magitek is heavily supplemented with [[SteamPunk steam power]].
* ''Fanfic/RoyalHeights'' has Utopia which provides jets able to fly fast enough to rip through dimensions and into new ones, a metal chip that sends your consciousness into a new body, and what appears to be a universal mail system. But unlike other examples, Utopia tries to pretend all of their work is purely scientific. The witch of the story reveals that all of this couldn't be possible without magical assistance.

* The Jedi in ''Franchise/StarWars'' are within spitting distance of this, although they're more a matter of magic coexisting with a technological world than of magic displacing technology.
** In the [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Expanded Universe]], attempts to design technology that uses the Force are mostly the province of the DarkSide for some reason.
*** Lightsabers and holocrons can only be built by using the Force.
*** See the Video Games entry for the Rakata.
*** One example involves a Sith destroyer designed by a technologically-minded Sith Lord during Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic days to use a BrainComputerInterface with a powerful Force user in order to boost the ship's systems, turning the destroyer into a superweapon capable of wiping out fleets on its own. The ships hyperdrive channels energy directly from Darth Karrid to allow it to travel at unheard of before speeds. She uses the Force to fine-tune the ship's targetting sensors to be able to pick off any ship, even a SpaceFighter, with a precision shot.
* ''Film/{{Thor}}''
** The film is an interesting example, because while ClarkesThirdLaw is in full effect ("On Earth you distinguish between magic and science, where I come from they're one and the same"), it hasn't yet reached the levels of this trope. Specific items like weapons and clothing are imbued with incredible properties, and the Asgardians have the ability to make pinpoint wormholes and use anti-gravity to lift entire skyscrapers high in the air... but they still use horses. There's a lot of cultural tradition at work here.
** Taken further in the [[Film/ThorTheDarkWorld sequel]], where we are introduced to the Dark Elves, a civilization preceding even the Asgardians, who have advanced spacecraft, energy rifles and black hole grenades, but also make use of magic-like energy-manipulation.
* The weapons used by HYDRA, the Nazis' Deep Science Division led by Johann Schmidt/The Red Skull in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', were heavily implied to use the Cosmic Cube/Tesseract that the Asgardians used beforehand as a power source.
* ''Film/{{Equinox}}'' is one of the oldest examples and may be the oldest put to film. The symbol magic in the film is explicitly treated like a science.
--> ''...Manipulation of these symbols is treated exactly like the science of chemistry. This element changes that one, one symbol is a catalyst, another is an agent or a counteractant.'''

Literature/ASymphonyOfEternity has magitek [[UpToEleven applied on a Galactic scale]]. We have three Galactic Superpowers powered by energy crystals, along with interstellar portals powered by [[MotherEarth the planets themselves]] armies made out of magic powered tanks and artilery fighting alongside Greek Phalanxes and Roman legion loke units. In space fighters and bombers fly alongside Pegasus riders and [[Main/MiniMecha soldiers in powersuits with wings on their backs]] and technology like magic in our world have been mostly forgotten. So much so that when somone who knows technology, called a technosaucerer appears it make one of the Imperial Governour is afraid that it could turn local rebels into a full fledged revolt.

* ''[[TheLaundrySeries The Atrocity Archives]]'' features a group of computer geeks who became ascended computer geeks when they learned how to make NP=P. The end result is such inventions as hands used to make '[[HandOfGlory hands of glory]]' which bend light, and if properly aligned can make lasers. Also video cameras that can convert carbon to silicon (Gorgon's Stare), which tends to [[YourHeadAsplode make things explode]]. Please note that while special skills that anyone can learn are needed to construct these devices and the accurate aiming and firing of a HandOfGlory/laser is described as taking some experience, all the Gorgon's Stare requires is to look through a pair of special lenses and press a button.
** This is actually more dangerous than it sounds: Anyone with a computer and some programming talent can summon demons, or out-and-out {{Eldritch Abomination}}s. ''By accident.'' Series protagonist Bob Howard was forcibly recruited because it turned out his latest project would have inadvertently summoned Nyarlathotep. Yes, [[CthulhuMythos THAT]] Nyarlathotep.
** All this, just from being able to solve the Travelling Salesman Problem in polynomial time? Dayum!
* Geoffrey A. Landis's first story, ''Elemental,'' took place in a future in which magic has been discovered to be a form of physics, and (for example), thamauturges use pentacles to control antimatter.
* Michael Swanwick's series starting with ''Literature/TheIronDragonsDaughter'' treats magic as a form of technology -- the iron dragons of the title are made in factories.
* DavidWeber has a tendency to treat magic as just another form of technology in his books. Witness the ''Literature/HellsGate'' series which has the magical equivalent of computers and genetic engineering, which is used to create dragons of course.
** Especially since in the [[TheWarGods Bazhell]] series' background the old empire that fell 1,000 years before was explicitly Magitek. Dwarfs are championed by the author due to his hatred of the anti-technology stance of much of fantasy. The old way of making steel depended on the support of wizards. The new one uses Bessemer Converters. Steam engines are being discovered and shock absorbers are now being used on wagons.
* Over the course of the books, the Literature/{{Discworld}} moves more and more toward this. We have inventions from cameras powered by a tiny imp painting a picture, all the way up to the High Energy Magic Building at Unseen University, where Hex, a magical AI, lives. Magitek is used alongside ClockPunk technology-as of ''Discworld/RaisingSteam'', clockpunk combined with ''very early'' Age of Steam; it hasn't gone full SteamPunk ... yet.
** Hex is used mainly as a vehicle for computer puns, e.g. it's got an anthill inside, it doesn't work when it's not FTB (fluffy teddy bear) enabled, etc. According to ''The Art of Discworld'', "the wizard built something sufficiently computerlike that [[BuffySpeak computerness]] entered it".
** Magitek is also subverted in Interesting Times, where one character assumes that the watches are powered by demons. In fact, demons ''were'' used, but turned out to be unreliable, so the watchmakers moved on to clockwork.
** A notable non-magical technology is the "clacks towers"-a continent-wide network of semaphore towers that is often used to parody telephones and the internet. Explored in detail in ''The Fifth Elephant'' and ''Going Postal''. The clacks companies do, however, employ lots of gargoyles as signal-watchers, as they're extremely good at sitting still and watching the same thing all day long.
** Leonard of Quirm, a genius inventor, seems to be advancing ClockPunk technology on the Disc.
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by resident wizard-nerd Ponder Stibbons at one point, explicitly referencing the quote at the top of the page-when he can't explain the technology behind his latest invention to another wizard, he chalks it up to "sufficiently advanced magic."
* There are some examples in Creator/JKRowling's ''Literature/HarryPotter'' franchise. Especially noticeable within the realm of the live-action films. This is used to the point where technology is referred to as a {{Muggle|s}} substitute for magic (in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix''). Examples of magic being used as technology don't occur much in the story itself, but it is clear from the dialogue that this is how it is used in the larger world the books take place in. Wizards don't seem to understand the Muggle concepts of "light bulbs" or "telephones" for example. The self-writing quills are word processors that suit the personal tastes and writing style of the writer: see Rita Skeeter's acid quill for that one. Then there are self-stirring cauldrons, sneakoscopes (alarms), wireless radios, apparating, broomsticks, the flying carpets, floo network, and portkeys (transportation), the Portrait Galleries that often act like a vast, sentient internet for anyone that happens to be able to persuade them. Lovegood's antique printing press-if the Quibbler has it, why not the Daily Prophet and every wizarding publisher in existence?
** In terms of Magitek as "combination of technology and magic", Arthur's flying car is a notable example, and there's also the entire Misuse of Muggle Artifacts Office, which shows that such things are possible but illegal in the wizarding world. This is simply a matter of maintaining TheMasquerade: combining Muggle technology with magic makes it far more likely for the object to end up in Muggle hands, thus revealing the existence of magic.
* Creator/PiersAnthony's ''IncarnationsOfImmortality'' is based on a society much like our own, only Fate, Time and Death (among others) are incarnated in humans (sometimes against the will of said humans), magic is real, and in the future timeline technology and magic merge to a large degree. (Justified in that "magic" is said to be based on a "fifth fundamental force", making it essentially an application of physics in that universe). At one point, the series states plainly that anything magic can accomplish, technology can do too, and vice versa.
** His 'Xanth' series has Com Pewter, a piece of bizarre, self-aware, occasionally malicious electronics that can literally alter reality within its area of influence.
* The ''YoungWizards'' teens' series by Diane Duane has magic users receive wizarding manuals customized in form to their preferences. This has increasingly meant computers (specifically, Apples-ever tried porting magic to XP?) instead of the traditional books. Early starters get desktop machines while the recent arrivals can brandish [[http://www.youngwizards.com/WizPodAd4.jpg iPods]] that draw their power from the nearest star, automatically receive updates, come with the iSpell feature for keeping track of your magic ''and'' play good music.
** Nita has a spell which manifests as a [[FrickinLaserBeams particle beam rifle]].
* The ''Literature/TheDeathGateCycle'', series of seven fantasy novels by MargaretWeis and Tracy Hickman (who co-wrote the original D&D ''{{Dragonlance}}'' novels). They feature flying ships powered by Rune Magic and elven civilisations using magic for everything from enchanting armor and weapons technology to household appliances.
** Bonus points for that most of the {{Magitek}} of the elves seems to be sentient, no matter how pointless it is -- for example an enchanted arrow that loudly protests when it's fired at a dragon.
** The interface of magic versus technology seems to be flipped between humans and elves; this is [[HandWaved explained]] by the fact that elves are inherently magical, but are weak on the mechanical side -- to compensate for this weakness, they poured all their development of magical abilities into enhancing the mechanical and physical world. Humans are inherently mechanically/physically inclined, they compensate for their magical weak spot by pouring all their magical development into the natural things, like the elements, and controlling dragons. Magnify this single-minded focus of development over hundreds of years, and you get humans whose magic controls the elements (even though humans are by nature mechanically inclined) and elves whose magic enhances mechanical objects (even though elves are by nature more nature/element inclined).
* The ''WizBiz'' series of novels by Rick Cook (comprised of ''Wizard's Bane; The Wizardry Compiled; The Wizardry Cursed; The Wizardry Consulted''), about a Silicon Valley programmer transported into a world where magic exists and where reality, he finds out, [[RewritingReality is programmable]].
* Used to limited extent in Literature/DoraWilkSeries. Thorn produces electricity by magic, and phonelines are managed the same way (explaining partly why phones of normal world don't work in Thorn and vice-versa). She states that they are probably the cleanest society in the worlds.
* Randall Garrett's ''Literature/LordDarcy'' series is a great example of this trope. In this world, magic is studied with as much emphasis on higher math and theory as any science. The stories are murder mysteries, with Lord Darcy and Master Sean O Lochlainn solving crimes using the former's deductive abilities, and the latter's expertise in forensic magic. Fortunately, Master Sean [[MrExposition likes explaining how his forensic techniques work]].
* Creator/HarryTurtledove's ''The Case of the Toxic Spell Dump'' is the very definition of this trope; it's set in an AlternateHistory 20th century Earth that functions exactly like our own, except all the technology is magical.
** He also wrote a series following the course of a UsefulNotes/WorldWarII analogue with behemoths in the place of tanks, dragons instead of planes, enchanted "[[ThisIsMyBoomstick sticks]]" that worked a lot like guns, a magical Manhattan Project, and so on.
* Creator/JackChalker's ''[[Literature/RiverOfDancingGods Dancing Gods]]'' trilogy had its characters TrappedInAnotherWorld where magic was real, but [[MagicAIsMagicA followed very specific rules]] and mathematically precise patterns, such that every high-ranking wizard also had to be a genius mathematician. One of the major subplots follows how much this system is screwed up by the introduction of technology smuggled from Earth; even a pocket calculator could turn a mediocre magician into a powerhouse, and more powerful computers can be programmed to work out new spells at high speeds. Also, in one plot where a powerful wizard came to "our world," he discovered that creating magic spells was analogous to computer programming, which allowed him to bring magic to our world.
* In addition to ''Literature/MagicInc.'', there is Creator/RobertAHeinlein's 1963 novel ''Literature/GloryRoad'', where magic is treated like RealLife treats technology. Although walking the Glory Road actually takes you into parallel universes with slightly different laws. Some you can't stop in for more than a short time without dying.
* Somewhere between a ShoutOut and a {{Homage}} to ''Magic, Inc.'' is Creator/PoulAnderson's 1971 novel ''Literature/OperationChaos'' and its sequel ''Operation Luna''.
* Simon Hawke's ''TheWizardOf4thStreet'' and its sequels have a 22nd century where magic has been reawakened and revolutionized technology and society: electrical generators powered by renewable magic, levitating cars with "thaumaturgic batteries", and sentient animated objects of all kinds.
* MasamuneShirow's Orion has this, with a Buddhist/Hinduist design style and a computing basis, such as talismans and seals for wake-up alarms, and reality-altering 'dharmaquations', a mixture of computer program and mandala.
* ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' series has artifacts from the Age of Legends called ter'angreal which each use the One Power to do a specific thing, including changing the weather, storing a library, and what is [[NoodleIncident implied]] to be some sort of sex toy. A great many require a [[WitchSpecies channeler]] to work, but a few do not. In the Age of Legends, something called "standing flows" allowed even the former to be usable by Muggles.
* In the later books in the ''Literature/OldKingdom'' series, Prince Sameth is finding workarounds for the 'technology fails in presence of magic' problem by creating magical versions of nifty Ancelstierran technology.
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' doesn't play too much with it, as magic and technology don't interact well. However there are plenty of loopholes and Wizards use what they can. {{Badass Normal}}s using the right ammo can be deadly to most magical foes. One of the best examples might be using magic to grab an old Soviet Satellite and doing a ColonyDrop.
** Although [[spoiler:Odin]] can integrate magic with technology, since he's [[spoiler:a god.]]
* {{Dragaera}} uses this like ''crazy''. One of the main side-effects of the Interregnum was that the Imperial Orb was changed to make magic a lot more powerful. This jarred Dragaeran society out of its artificially-imposed MedievalStasis as sorcerers had a field day figuring out all the new things they could do. In particular, teleportation completely changed the dynamics of trade and travel, psychic communication is used in a way reminiscent of cell phones, magical ''genetic tests'' are possible to do quickly and covertly, and magical lighting is the norm. Additionally, it became possible to revive someone recently killed from the dead if his central nervous system is still intact, meaning that often, DeathIsCheap.
** The Imperial Orb acts as a video camera, a literal magical database, and a public utility.
* Melissa Scott's ''Silence Leigh'' trilogy has ''starships'' powered by alchemy and guided by astrology.
* In ''Literature/CodexAlera'', most of Aleran society runs off of this. Since absolutely everyone ([[TheCallPutMeOnHold except Tavi]]) has ElementalPowers, technology has stagnated at a medieval level while everything else is taken care of by MundaneUtility applications of furycrafting. They have {{flying car}}s, a lightbulb-equivalent, refrigeration, and the like through applied magic, to the point where in-universe, scholars have started to deny that their precursors (the Romans) could possibly have built everything they did without furies. It also leads them into technological blind spots, however, such as when the Alerans fight the [[WolfMan Canim]], who mostly get by on their superhuman strength and toughness coupled with skilled engineering. One of the nastiest Canim weapons turns out to be a simple, if gigantic, crossbow that can easily kill an Aleran soldier through furycraft-enhanced armor and then continue on to kill the man behind him. Tavi and Bernard eventually apply technology and furycrafting to create [[spoiler: catapults that launch spheres loaded with tiny fire furies that essentially serve as incendiary cluster bombs, which prove to be the single most devastating weapon in the history of Alera.]]
* David Anthony Durham's ''Acacia'' trilogy there is a race whose technology is powered by human souls.
* Both averted and played straight in MercedesLackey's ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' series: [[TheKingdom Valdemar]] does almost everything manually; [[TheEmpire the Eastern Empire]], on the other hand, does almost everything by magic. When magic becomes unreliable, Valdemar carries on mostly unaffected, while the Empire must declare martial law and impose strict rationing.
* Some Creator/TomHolt books have Magitek, such as the magic mirror that runs ''Mirrors '95'' in ''Snow White And The Seven Samauri'' or the various devices in the ''Portable Door'' series. ''Literature/DjinnRummy'' mentions genies who have gone into business running technological devices, making these {{Magitek}} in the truest sense.
* In Creator/HarryTurtledove's ''Every Inch A King'' windworkers produce winds that allow ships to sail against the natural wind, items are cheaply mass produced using the law of sympathy, crystal balls replace telegraphy, etc.
* In ''Literature/TheEdgeChronicles'', while the ships do not work exactly like aircraft, they are close enough to be comparable, and powered by a flying rock. Stormphrax is also important for several uses.
* ''Magicnet'' proposes that many magical incantations work, but they don't work well enough or reliably enough for this to be statistically verifiable. Then along came computers, which could cast those incantations millions of times in quick succession until the desired result occurred. All the major spellcasters in the book are also hackers.
* In ''Naím y el mago fugitivo'' (''Naím and the runaway magician''), by argentine author Sebastián Lalaurette, magic is a Magitek: magicians (called Rumotim) have to extract it first from nature, and then they can use it. Every spell requires a certain quantity of magic. Then [[spoiler:Rumotim Ramiro Grimor discovers a way to make magic grow, allowing every magician to dispose of virtually unlimited quantities of it]], and it looks like everything's going to hell. Fortunately [[spoiler:there are [[AntiMagic antimagicians]] as well.]]
* The SecretHistories books feature this prominently. The Drood PoweredArmor is one example. So are many of Eddie Drood's gadgets. Many other factions use technology enhanced by magic OR magic standardized by technology.
* ''Literature/AlcatrazSeries'':
** The Free Kingdomers use technologies powered by various types of magical sand or glass, collectively known as silimatics. Active technologies such as airplanes (shaped like giant glass dragons!) and elevators are powered by brightsand. Passive technologies include Expander's Glass, which allows for BiggerOnTheInside architecture, and Defender's Glass to act as armor.
** We don't know about silimatics because the [[AncientConspiracy Librarians]] flooded the Hushlands (where we live) with vast quantities of dullsand, the only type of sand that does absolutely nothing even if you make it into glass.
** Oddly, Free Kingdomer's (inexpert) imitations of Hushlander technology often work better than both genuine Hushlander tech and ''actual Free Kingdom tech''. And the Scrivener's Bones[[note]] a faction of the Librarians[[/note]]' hybrid tech works better still.
** Then there's things even the Free Kingdomers consider magical, like Oculatory Lenses. Free Kingdomers will stoutly deny that silimatics are magic: magic is things that [[InherentGift only some people can use]], therefore silimatics are merely technology.
* The Commonwealth in Patrick Rothfuss' ''TheKingkillerChronicles'' uses a lot of this. Other nations do too but to a lesser extent because the main source of magitek is The University, located in the Commonwealth.
* In John Scalzi's ''The God Engines'' they have starships that harness the power of defeated deities to travel between the stars, also specially trained crew members who function as living hyperspace radios.
* In the ''Literature/MediochreQSethSeries'', [[WhateverMancy technomancy]] is the art of incorporating enchantments into technological components so that they can do more.
* ''Literature/LegacyOfTheDragokin'': Final Shield is a technological device that runs on electricity but produces a magical effect. Rufus initially had trouble figuring out how it worked until he noticed its resembalance to a completely technological device.
* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' gives us examples of straight-up magic, straight-up science... and this. The Wall is an AncientArtifact using [[LostTechnology lost construction methods]] and has a decidedly magical nature to it, for all it's maintained through straight-forward engineering. Other LostTechnology also has varying degrees of "magicness" too it: Valyrian steel, Winterfell's heating system, the House of Black and White, the dragonglass "light bulb"... the list is probably a lot longer. Some tech that is not lost also shares the semi-magical nature of that of the past: poisons that use magic as well as chemical processes and the "investigations" of the MadDoctor Qyburn are just two examples. And, what with the TheMagicComesBack, more may continue to be found or rediscovered.
* Inverted in [[Creator/StephenKing Stephen King's]] Franchise/TheDarkTower series, where the old ones decided to replace magic with technology to the point of trying to tear down the [[CosmicKeystone Dark Tower]] itself to rebuild it with science.
* The scry technology of ''Literature/CannonFodder'' looks a lot like Skype. Alec also has a magic-powered amphibious vehicle.
* ''Literature/ToughMagic'' has a good bit, with cyps (cars), railcars (trains), temirs (videophones), golems (robots)...
%% * The clockwork automatons in ''Literature/TheInfernalDevices''.
* The devices used in the ''Franchise/{{Doctor Who|Expanded Universe}}'' splinter universe ''Literature/FactionParadox'' by the titular Faction are mockeries of technology powered by voodoo. The Homeworld and the Faction are still sitting to see if they can get a coherent opinion.
* ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'' has the flying motorcycles the vampires ride, which are powered by "demon energies". Also, those who look closely will notice that Magnus Bane's television is not actually plugged in. The Shadowhunters have Magitek home conveniences in Idris.
* ''Literature/{{Manifestation}}'': One of the characters develops a type of Technomancy that allows her to use magic to repair damaged machines, power the machines with mana instead of electricity, and enhance the capabilities of machines.
* In the ''Literature/TowersTrilogy'', the City runs on magitek, a result of magic being used to repair and replace the post-apocalyptic remnants of technological infrastructure.
* In ''Literature/ApparatusInfernum'', the setting makes extensive use of magic and technology in concert — in particular, elementals (fire, air, etc) are harnessed to power steam-era technology like trains. The foundation of this magitek is shakier than assumed, however, and becomes directly relevant to the plot in the second book, when the elemental-based tech starts misbehaving and the protagonists have to find out why.
* ''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': All of Tariatla's technology is built using a mage's scientific understanding of the world. For instance, air conditioning uses wind magic and, instead of "cellphones", everyone's walking around with "scries" that do the same thing.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Provided by the Twilight group to try and give Amy an advantage against Willow.
** During the first two seasons we had Jenny Calendar, a self-described techno-pagan, who occasionally combined divination and other arcane abilities with computers and the Internet.
--->"You think the realm of the mystical is limited to ancient texts and relics? That bad old science made the magic go away? The divine exists in cyberspace same as out here."
* ''Series/DoctorWho'', "Battlefield" -- [[KingArthur The Arthurian characters]] come from a magitek universe.
** In fact, when discussing how one of their spaceships worked, the Doctor goes so far as to point out to Ace that not only is [[ClarkesThirdLaw sufficiently advanced technology indistinguishable from magic]], but that the reverse is true as well.
* The characters in AceLightning claim that the [[MacGuffin Amulet of Zoar]] (amongst other things) is fueled by magic... But they are all actually video game characters brought to life [[LightningCanDoAnything by a bolt of lightning]] so technically...
* ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' is filled with magic/technology hybrid gear. We ''start'' with an ancient wizard in a high-tech command center that runs the Rangers' gear by channeling the power of the vaguely-defined Morphin' Grid versus an alien witch released from [[SealedEvilInACan the can]] by astronauts. HumongousMecha powered by the spirits of dinosaurs. MagiBabble and TechnoBabble combined by RobotBuddy Alpha. The entire "Zordon era" of the franchise was characterized by this, and while the later stand alone series tend to be magical ''or'' technological, a few later series have gone back to it (and the Grid is the source of ''all'' Ranger powers.) [[Series/PowerRangersJungleFury Spiritual energy-powered]] {{BFG}}, anyone?
* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' also uses this trope in the Heisei series. Mostly because present day humans found out how to use an ancient or otherworldly magical power source.
** The Rider suits in ''Series/KamenRiderBlade'' draw their power from ancient magical cards holding divine creatures called Undead.
** In ''Series/KamenRiderW'', both the heroes and the villains use Gaia Memories, which are USB drive-like devices which hold knowledge from the mind of the planet itself.
** ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'' plays this trope as straight as it can be, as the Riders explicitly use magic, but require rather technological looking belts to do so. The main weapon of TheHero is also a sword, which turns into a gun, that shoots magical homing bullets.
** The Lock Seeds, which are used as {{Transformation Trinket}}s by the Riders in ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' are pieces of magical fruit from another dimension converted by technology created by normal humans.
* In ''Series/{{Angel}}'', Fred and Wesley create a technomystical device to aid Angel.
* In ''Series/{{Knightmare}}'' this was the villain, Lord Fear's hat.
* The MadeForTVMovie ''Paradox'' is ''made'' of this trope -- at least until they visit the science-based world. Every desk has a magical computer with a HolographicTerminal displaying InstantRunes, and every character carries a scrying crystal cellphone. There are also cars and freezers. Notably, however, nobody really ''understands'' how any of these things work, which is why science looks more attractive to the main characters.
* ''The Stone Tape'' involves English scientists trying to develop a new recording technology to compete with Japan. When they realise they're in a HauntedHouse and believing that the ghost is a LivingMemory, they try to study the phenomena in the hope of developing a new technology. It doesn't end well.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* In the ''TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness'' GothicPunk game setting (especially ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension''), the rules of reality were created largely by the force of belief, so all technology was in effect magitek, built off of the work of a group of reality-warpers (the Technocracy).
** In the ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'', this relationship was flipped, with magic instead drawing from "natural" forces. As a result, some groups of magi (especially the forward-thinking Free Council) can and do draw magic from modern technology in the same way that older mages draw it from older technology, coming at Magitek form the other direction.
* The old ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' supplement ''The Book of Wondrous Inventions'' is all about silly versions of this. Includes such things as a cola vending machine, a pinball machine, a boombox, and a [[HumongousMecha Humongous]] TransformingMecha.
** The ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' has magitek, mostly in magocracies and elven cities:
*** Netheril was an extensively magical setting. Invention of mythallars (magical secondary power sources) made creation of magic items cheap as long as you don't mind they work only in its range, which aside of [[OminousFloatingCastle flying islands]] meant permanent items were mostly biased toward backyard applications and wizards had a lot of experience in this area. Aside of typical [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons AD&D]] trinkets there were things like Water Pipe (permanent fissure into the Elemental Plane of Water), Ice Box (conduit to the Paraelemental Plane of Ice), Stoker’s pit (fissure to the Elemental Plane of Fire), ''Music box'', ''roomlights'', ''skimmers'' (boats propelled by air elementals), ''netherpelters'' (telekinesis-powered small arms with magical ammo), and so on.
*** Halruaa, the longest-lived of Netheril's successor states, had less advanced but still very useful showcase, mostly revolving around providing comfort for its citizens (air conditioning, heating, freezing, building, and so on). And a [[CoolAirship skyship]] fleet.
*** Imaskar was another extensively magical human empire in the Realms. The Imaskari focused on dimensional magic. If you were a rich citizen of the empire, all the above fissures to other planes could be acquired, as well as other portal-trickery (fresh air from the Elemental Plane of Air, storage rooms in dimensional pockets, portals designed to show nice views of other places...).
*** And another one was the Illefarn nation, inhabited by elves and dwarves. It became doomed shortly after Netheril when their [[VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2 magitek national defense project ran amok]] (-339 DR) from being shunted to the Shadow Weave (an alternate source of magic controlled by an evil Goddess). It continued to be a problem for residents living near the ruins of the Illefarn nation sporadically throughout the centuries all the way up to 1374 DR.
*** Living City attracts bright folk who didn't fit elsewhere, including Thay and Halruaa, and adventurers. Thus magically it's only a notch below major magocracies and collected as much useful inventions, like 'wand of portraiture' (photography), '[[InertialDampening safety net]]' and 'ring of [[AnimatedArmor helmed horrors]]' or 'Shayn’s Infallible Identification' spell (it demonstrably associates an object with a creature, the name says its main use). Ambassador Carrague likes such toys, and Elminster likes to feed him some exclusive lore, so once he heard about steam trains, he built prototypes powered by his own invention, 'decanter of endless steam'. Of course, no one except dwarves would invest in rails, even wooden, just to see how much good these loud things may do in the long run.
** ''TabletopGame/{{Spelljammer}}'' literally runs on it, by definition. Wildspace was ''intended to'' be more magic-rich than most groundling settings, so there's much more to it than engines.
** ''TabletopGame/{{Mystara}}'' had skyships before Halruaa. With such devices as Dynamo of Flying (conversion of spell levels into large-scale preset effect) and Internal Conjuration Engine (pour potions of flying in, and it makes a whole ship fly). Both allow other effects if built this way -- so you can have a stealth ship, but its engine will little by little slurp whole casks of invisibility potion too.
** There was a twist of the VancianMagic in AD&D 2 ''College of Wizardry'' [[note]] reappeared in D&D 3 ''Tome and Blood'', used for "Mage of the Arcane Order" class, which in turn was reused in D&D 3.5 ''Complete Arcane'' and customized as "Guild Wizard" in [[ForgottenRealms Magic of Faerûn]][[/note]] the spellcrux, or spellpool. It's a bank/server that stores spell-patterns, so that wizards with remote access can save memorized spells and later get and cast stored ones. They're still limited to normal total capacity, but gives more choice (if different wizards contribute different spells) and flexibility (instead of a fixed UtilityBelt they get what they need right now). Has checking "credit balance", admin account and all that.
** ''TabletopGame/{{Eberron}}'' features a Pulp Adventure setting influenced by Franchise/IndianaJones movies, mixed with DungeonPunk, in a faux-19th century world making use of arcane technology and magic for infrastructure, travel and everyday life. This includes magic streetlights, magic trains and planes, magic grenade launchers, and magic robots. Magic is such an everyday thing that many of the working class are [[http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/ebds/20040823a Magewrights]] with just enough talent to power minor [[MagicWand wands]] (or create them, with the right training). There's even an industry in magic items which reduce the training required to craft other magic items. PlayerCharacters can become [[GadgeteerGenius Artificers]], who are better at creating and [[ItemCaddy using magic items]] than wizards despite not being able to cast spells.
* In a less setting-specific example, Half-Golems are basically the HollywoodCyborg as powered by magic. They are living creatures that have had golem components (most typically arms, legs and protective plates) grafted onto their body -- this gives them various bonuses, depending on what sort of half-golem they are.
* Some ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' settings are like this -- especially the Brothers' War and the Ravnica block.
** Not to mention Mirrodin -- a plane created by a golem planeswalker where sentient life is almost entirely comprised of animated artifacts.
** Or the later plane of Esper in Shards of Alara, a techno-magical blue-aligned plane where all forms of life are infused with the mystic metal [[AppliedPhlebotinum Etherium.]]
** Phyrexia, old and new, combines this with BodyHorror and AssimilationPlot. Think Magitek [[Franchise/StarTrek Borg]]. As horrifying as it was, Yawgmoth's magitek was so impressive that [[spoiler:Urza, the artificer planeswalker who had dedicated his life to fighting Phyrexia, fell to his knees and pledged himself to Yawgmoth because he saw Phyrexia as everything he ever wanted.]]
* Palladium Games's ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' RPG features Techno-Wizards, spellcaster-mechanics whose focus is on building machines and weapons powered by Magic. They can make a jeep that can ride in midair and turn invisible, then make and mount on it a [[{{BFG}}hand-held cannons]] that shoots ice blasts or rains meteorites on the enemy.
* Also in ''Rifts'' and Palladium's ''TabletopGame/HeroesUnlimited'' is Telemechanics, a psionic ability that lets the user either intuitively understand how a piece of machinery works and operate it, or in the case of [=AIs=] communicate with them directly.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' has First Age technology, from a time when the Solar Exalted could study the interplay of Essence and science and create true wonders (before the insanity, of course -- but then again, they probably produced some fun stuff after the insanity took hold). It is explicitly called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin magitech]] in the books and setting. Examples range from power armor to airships to artificial limbs to dinosaurs that eat poppies and pee heroin.** The Alchemical Exalted are creations of Autochthon, a [[DeusEstMachina machine god]], and their background and powers revolve around magitech.
* The ''TabletopGame/IronKingdoms'' has Mechanika, which is mostly technology fueled by Magic. In the ''WARMACHINE'' games, this normally comes in the form of various weapons.
* ''TabletopGame/FengShui'''s 2056 juncture uses a creepy fusion of magic and science known as arcanotech. Most of it is used by the Buro military and elite agents, offering a power boost in exchange for [[TheCorruption bent magic getting sent into your system like a virus whenever you use it]]. Use it too much, and you start mutating into something horrific and run the risk of becoming an abomination, one of the altered demons that the Buro uses to fight its wars.
* The Skaven of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' are perhaps the most technologically-advanced race thanks to their embrace of [[GreenRocks Warpstone]]. They use it as a powerful mutagen, ammunition, DeathRay energy source, component of giant hamster wheels that shoot lightning, or as part of the setting equivalent of a nuclear bomb. Their Clan Skryre is a blend of dark wizards and mad scientists known as Warplock Engineers.
* Eldar gear in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' is a unique blend of highly-advanced technology and psychic "sorcery" -- their robots, for example, are well-crafted frames animated by the spirit of a fallen warrior held in a crystal. Their core construction material is Wraithbone, which is basically concentrated, solidified psychic energy. It can apparently assume a lot of properties, from being hard as metal to as flexible as soft plastic, with conductivity being easily manipulated. Chaos forces in the same setting use [[BlackMagic black]] [[{{Magitek}} magitech]] to create [[ArtifactOfDoom their most powerful works]], such as [[DemonicPossession daemonically-possessed]] tanks or HumongousMecha..
** Imperial technology does not use this, but [[BeliefMakesYouStupid everyone thinks it does]]. Tech-priest rituals involve a lot of chanting and sacred oils before they finally flip the "On" switch.
** On the gripping hand, it's hinted that sometimes a Tech Priest's devotion ''does'' cause a machine which ''shouldn't'' be working to do so when he finally gets to that last part. The 40K universe tends to [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve bend to belief]]...
** Also it's pretty clear base on the books "Tech-priest rituals" are really what we do, just with a lot more Chanting.
** Even IF the Tech-priests aren't magitek, other parts of the Imperium certainly are such as the Grey Knights and their nemesis weapons which are made of enchanted silver and iron according to their codex. For that matter, if DOW 2 is canon then probably quite a few Space Marine relics end up becoming magitek by lucky accident during major battles.
** Though memorizing rituals seems to be an effective method of making sure people still know how to work certain devices twenty thousand years after they were invented, given that nobody really understands how they work anymore.
** It probably should be noted that certain pieces of Imperial tech do at least interact with the Warp, between the warp drives and Gellar fields, sensors which can record warp energy, and the gadgetry used to silence sanctioned psykers.
** The orks have even more of that: by all rights and sanity their technology shouldn't work, but it ends up working anyway because the orks ''expect'' it to work. So in effect, ''all'' their technology is Magitek, because all of it works in large part because of the magical effects of orkish confidence. Used to [[JustifiedTrope justify]] having a bunch of barbarian thugs be a threat to an interstellar civilization.
** The exact extent to which this is true varies from codex to codex to book. In one, an orkish gun is described as a gun casing containing a single gear and a bullet. In others, orkish technology is described as functional, if rough and dangerous, only Da red wunz go fasta, and some more complicated orkish weapons require orkish psychic powers to work. The codexes tend to ascribe their abilities to technology, the fluff to psychic power.
** The latest consensus is that Ork technology is quite functional if crude, thanks to the engineering knowledge hardwired into the Mekboyz genes by the Orks' creators the Old Ones. Humans are able to make use of scavenged Ork vehicles and weapons that aren't too big for them. The Ork gestalt field just makes their equipment perform even better. Magic isn't strictly necessary for the Ork's tech to work, it just helps it perform at peak (and even beyond) efficiency.
* In ''TabletopGame/CthulhuTech'', the line between technology and magic is so thin as to be almost completely arbitrary. One wonders why there is any distinction at all, other than the fact that the Lovecraftian forces used by magic and magitek are, to say the least, rather dangerous. To expand, sorcery is taught as a science in universities, while there is mandatory registration for [[PsychicPower parapsychics]]. Almost all modern technology in the setting is powered by the D-Engine, which [[MadScientist drives you crazy]] if you look too closely at it.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' is what you get when you merge cyberpunk and D&D together. As such, it's usually in the case of defense systems of corporations or weaponry. Except that mundanes can't use "magictech" (no magic wands, etc), though the [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Dunkelzahn]] did leave a reward in his Will if someone could create things like that.
* ''Broken Gears'' as "A game of animistic steampunk", runs on this. It's [[AfterTheEnd Post-Apocalyptic]] GaslampFantasy where firearms must be oiled to feed salamanders (see [[Quotes/{{Magitek}} quotes]]) and are tested with thermal ink, and a Devil-[[DemonicPossession possessed]] Analytical Machine [[CloseEnoughTimeline designed by Charles Babbage and Alan Turing]] "helped" to finish WorldWarII and immediately started WorldWarIII.
* ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'s'' basic magic system is very magitek-friendly, with many options for item enchantments basically allowing one to create items which can replace advanced technology, such as Wands of Extinguish Fire. One of the core Colleges is the Technology College, which handles the shaping and control of machinery, with sub-Colleges for Energy, Radiation, and Metal and Plastic. One spell of the Energy sub-College, Draw Power, allows a Mage to draw energy from an external source, such as a battery or a generator, and use it to fuel a different spell.
** ''TabletopGame/GURPSTechnomancer'' is what you get when you turn the Trinity Event into a necromantic ritual of immense proportions, completed by the Famous Oppenheimer Quote. Nikita Khrushchev claiming Soviet Union has entire armies of wizards? The U.S. Army winning UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar using dragons, weaponized flying carpets and zombies made from Vietcong corpses? Space travel by teleportation spells? Gene-engineered Stealth Dragons (with vampire genes, no less)? And it includes a ShoutOut to the UrExample -- the term "Technomancer" was apparently coined in the 1970s bestseller ''Technomancy'' by [[Creator/RobertAHeinlein Bob Anson]].
* ''TabletopGame/BlueRose's'' setting looks like a standard, if light-hearted fantasy setting with little in the way of magitek and the printing press being the most modern technology. But a closer reading shows that most Aldis cities have the equivalent of 20th century infrastructure because of shas crystals, and the same crystals can be used to create effective guns. It is implied that the Old Kingdom that came before was far more futuristic before being destroyed by internal schisms, and whether to try and recover the glories of the past or learn from their mistakes and leave it alone is one of the more contentious political issues in the setting.
* ''TabletopGame/WolsungSteamPulpFantasy'' combines this with SteamPunk. If anything is more advanced than a steam engine, it most probably runs on magic. This includes alchemy, golems, ray guns, radios, difference engines and general mad science.
* ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'': [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Magical_Scientist Magical Scientist's]] name, Type and effect imply that he used a mixture of science and magic in his researches. [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Kozaky Kozaky]] is a fiend, but seems to be Magical Scientist's partner on many experiments and have done a few of his own. There's also [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Cyborg_Doctor Cyborg Doctor]], another Spellcaster who appears to be the type,
* The Realm of ''TabletopGame/{{The Splinter}}'' runs on this.
* ''AnimaBeyondFantasy'' has (better said ''had'') the Empire of [[AncientGrome Solomón]], an {{Expy}} of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'''s [[TheEmpire Gestahlian Empire]], whose relics -that include among other things {{BFG}}s as well as golems- are highly sought by the current powers.

[[folder:Troper Works]]
* ''Literature/{{Eclipse}}'' has Augury, which mixes magic and technology in addition to the elements. One of the more notable devices produced from Augury is a bottle of wine that refills itself once its wave-like engravings flare up.


[[folder:Video Games]]
* As ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' is the TropeNamer, the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series makes liberal use of Magitek in most games since and a few prior.
** The Mirage Tower and Sky Castle/Floating Fortress from the original ''Final Fantasy'' seem to be this.
** The Steamship and Lonka Ruins of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' were powered by the [[CosmicKeystone Fire and Earth crystals]], respectively. Didn't do the crystals much good to be used that way.
** Later ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games use similar systems, most notably Mako in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. These usually are PoweredByAForsakenChild -- as is the original.
** Naturally-occurring magic in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' can be extracted and collected by technological means, at which point it becomes known as "Para-Magic," and it can then be put to use in further technology. For instance, the Junction Machine Ellone, which uses a very special kind of TimeTravel magic to send one's consciousness back through time, and allowed the BigBad to initiate her conquest. The high-tech Gardens, built by the [[{{Precursors}} long-lost Centra civilization]] and maintained by [=SeeD=], are magical flying fortresses. There are also some aspects of [[CrystalSpiresAndTogas Esthar]] that seem to use magical technology, such as Lunatic Pandora (a [[OminousFloatingCastle floating]] [[EvilTowerOfOminousness construction]] which technologically amplifies the power of its Crystal Pillar core to summon monsters from the Moon) and Tears' Point (a stadium-sized array of techno-magical batteries which is ''[[YouCantThwartStageOne supposed to stop]]'' the above event.)
** The Temple Cloisters of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', but most noticeable in the Temple of Djose (powered by magical lightning) and the Temple of Bevelle (with magical pathways, lifts, and teleporters.) Legend has it that the nation of Bevelle also used MagiTek extensively in its war with the mostly-magical Zanarkand a thousand years ago. In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'', this is expanded upon with [[DoomsdayDevice the ancient Vegnagun]], and the Machine Faction of the Al Bhed use (or unearth) magically-powered machina. WordOfGod says that the spheres are pyreflies, aka memories of the dead, mixed with water. The garment grids which allow you to take the costume and weapons of a sphere, are magitek. The organic nature of the magic is noted in game, when it turns out one of your spheres contains memories of the BigBad.
** After ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' has probably the most extensive, yet subtle use of MagiTek out of the franchise. Mist-rich Skystones and magicite keep airships aloft (except in places with high concentrations of Mist, like the jagds,) nearly all machinery and even public lighting use Mist as a power source, the [[TeleportersAndTransporters Moogling]] magically warps people across Rabanastre, and magically-charged [[GreenRocks Nethicite]] -- either handed down by the Gods themselves or ''[[PurpleProse manufacted]]'' by Man -- is carefully examined by scientists for use in great flying armadas ([[ExplosiveOverclocking however briefly]].)
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' includes Manadrives, mostly used by your enemies (and very occasionally by Lightning), which allow people who aren't l'Cie or fal'Cie to use magic. In fact, almost everything on Cocoon is powered by fal'Cie magic, including their ''sun'', Phoenix.
** The fal'Cie themselves are [[MechanicalLifeforms magitek lifeforms]]. You get to run around inside one within the first hour of gameplay, and gaze upon the various machinery and mechanical oddities within.
** The Garlean Empire from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' uses its superior magitek technology to conquer other countries, even utilizing Magitek Armor ripped straight from concept art for ''VI''.
** Ivalice from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' has a history of Magitech, though most of that is lost by the time the game starts. There's the magically-animated robot, Worker 8, who can join the player's party in an optional side quest, and the guns are described as relics of that ancient past, with legend telling of ancient guns that could be loaded with magic spells instead of bullets. Interestingly, it is implied that this is the distant future of the Ivalice of XII; what happened between them for knowledge of magitech to be lost is unknown, though it is worth noting that the most technologically inclined species, the Moogles, has gone extinct.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChroniclesCrystalBearers'' has the capital city of Alfitaria, which is powered entirely by Magitek crystals (as shown by the page picture of the nice Magitek screens).
* In ''VideoGame/RuneScape'', Oldak, the greatest cave goblin mage, frequently combines magic and technology in his experiments. He also seems to do a lot more FunctionalMagic than other mages.
* ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIII'' has chrysm energy, which parallels both fossil fuel and magic. Chrysm ore is the fossilised remains of dragons, and gives off a magical radiation used to power everything, [[GreenRocks among other plot-related abilities]].
* Everything in ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' is run on Moon Stones, it seems, except the few water- or windmills.
* Parodied in ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' with the [=MagiMechTech=] [=MechaMech=], a robot "powered by a sinister blend of magic and technology. Since sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic, though, you're not sure in what proportion."
* The Pkunk, space gypsy toucans from the ''VideoGame/StarControl'' series, embrace a life of so much spiritualism that their space ships seem to run on it -- their weapon batteries recharge with aggressive energy when they insult people over the comm, and destroyed ships have a 50% chance of inscrutably [[{{Reincarnation}} reincarnating]] on the spot.
* While ''VideoGame/EscapeVelocity Nova'' is otherwise a totally by-the-books high-tech space opera setting (as are the other two games), the Vell-Os are a faction of psychic Hindu mystics whose "spaceships" are revealed to actually be giant telekinetic projections the size of a star destroyer created (and manned) by one Vell-Os.
* In ''VideoGame/LostOdyssey'', the world is in the throes of the Magic-Industial Revolution -- magitek is everywhere, and major kingdoms are rapidly developing MagiTek WeaponsOfMassDestruction. In a similar vein to the idea behind FantasticRacism, the game portrays the pros and cons of technological advancement through the safely distancing lens of magitek...
* The GBA remake of ''ShiningForce'' has its magic coming from hyper-advanced {{Kill Sat}}s in orbit around the world. In fact, one of the main hero's abilities is to fire down an ion cannon blast.
* SpiritualSuccessor series ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' has {{Magitek}} in spades as well, though the magic is called {{Alchemy}} and [[PsychicPowers Psynergy]]. Most of the {{Magitek}} here is SchizoTech remaining from the glory days of {{Alchemy}}.
* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', Naaru and Ethereal constructs. ([[OurGnomesAreWeirder Gnomish]] and [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent Goblin]] technology, however, has been [[WordOfGod explicitly stated]] in the RPG sourcebooks to be non-magical SteamPunk...although goblins certainly aren't ashamed to give things a ''boost'' with magic, should it be required.)
** In the Warcraft lore, there is an entire class known as [[http://www.wowpedia.org/Techno_mage techno-mages]] that combine their spells with their inventions to make interesting things happen.
** Titan technology could be either this, or just [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien sufficiently advanced]]; the Titan structures in the Storm Peaks (Ulduar), Uldum, and Pandaria (The Engnine of Nalak'sha, the Vault of Y'shaarj) certainly appear to fit.
* The ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGaiden MasouKishin]]'' (Cybuster, etc...) sub-storyline of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' features magic-powered HumongousMecha. The main mech of the group, Cybuster, is actually blessed and powered by a God of wind. See also the Choukijin, which are TheFourGods [-[[RecycledINSPACE AS HUMONGOUS MECHA]]-]. They are partially sentient, and in Alpha 3 and OG, [=KoOuKi=] and [=RyuuOuKi=] actually absorb a SuperRobot in order to repair themselves.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', the Moon Tribe, such as Waka, seems to have access to some sort of Magitek (the lightsaber flute suggests as much, at least), but it suggests that ScienceIsBad in that [[spoiler:The God of Darkness is suggested to be the source of all technology]].
* The highest sort of technology in ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', and its sequel, ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'', is intimately tied with magic -- being capable of extracting it, producing it, and using it as a power source or ordnance. It gets to the point where [[spoiler:FATE, the [[MasterComputer governing intelligence]] of El Nido, was able to split apart an inherently magical creature and assume control over the six magical Elements that make up the world]].
* ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline'' features 'normal' highly advanced technology as well as so called disks, which can be used to learn magic
* While never specifically described as such, many of Shion's attacks in the first ''VideoGame/XenoSaga'' game come across as Magitek
* The VideoGame/{{Touhou}} game:
** Subterranean Animism, features the hell raven Utsuho Reiuji, who [[spoiler:has been given the powers of the mythological Yatagarasu, or more exactly, appears to have been fed the spirit of Yatagarasu itself, and since then, she's acquired the ability to manipulate nuclear fusion and fission, which she uses to rekindle the flames of the former hell. It's revealed later that the person who gave the Yatagarasu to her was the 10th game's final boss, goddess Kanako Yasaka who've recently arrived from the outside, contemporary world where humans live. Kanako aimed for revolutionizing the currently obsolete energy sources of the Kappa facilities near the base of her mountain, expecting that this would bring her more followers, and then used Utsuho as a literal thermonuclear power source, who's excess powers created geysers that would then be used to power the Kappa facilities]]
** The series has other examples, such as lunar veils made of zero-mass fabric, antimatter veils, quantum seals, use of phantasmal mushrooms with a miniature of the Hakkero furnace to create [[KamehameHadoken lasers]] or [[MundaneUtility prepare tea]], use of Japanese Kami (as a main ingredient) to make a wooden rocket travel from the Earth to the moon, and co-protagonist [[CuteWitch Marisa Kirisame]] magically summoning a hot spring vein underneath her house to serve as a floor-heating device.
* ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' games frequently feature portable electronic devices called COMPS that automatically perform the complex magical ritual of summoning demons into the mortal world. Examples include ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'', ''VideoGame/SoulHackers'', and ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney''.
* ''VideoGame/JadeEmpire'''s flying machines are constructed along Magitek lines.
* The enemies called [[DemonicSpiders Wizzerds]] in ''[[VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door]]'' are half mechanic half organic magic using creatures that can shoot lightning, duplicate themselves and take tons of damage. As the tattle for the normal one puts it:
-->''A part-machine, part-organic creature who uses different kinds of magic. It looks to be the best tickler of all time.''
* Due to CharacterCustomization, ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' allows you to become a magic-based hero who wields a [[SwissArmyWeapon Battle Rifle]], [[GunsAkimbo Dual Pistols]], or Devices, which include a targeting drone, smoke bombs, mines, and time bombs. Conversely, you can be a tech-based hero who can call on the [[{{Necromancer}} power of the netherworld]] or [[SummonMagic summon demons straight from hell]].
* Azadi technology in ''VideoGame/DreamfallTheLongestJourney'' would be unable to function in the purely magical world of Arcadia without magic powering it (yes, even steam engines). Magitek is also one of the possible explanations for the Collapse, when every piece of advanced technology, like antigravity and FTL, suddenly stopped working. They may simply not be possible without magic, and magic is forbidden in Stark.
* The world of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' is highly dependent on Ars Magus, Magitek developed during the Dark War that draws upon the seithr corruption produced by the Black Beast that nearly destroyed the world one hundred years ago. True magic does exist in the setting, but there are very few people alive in the present day who can use it. One of them, Phantom, might not technically be "alive" either.
* It's heavily implied that the lost Eldeen civilization from ''VideoGame/{{Ys}}'' was based on this, rather than simply straight magic -- many of their ruins look suspiciously high-tech, and it has sometimes gone so far as to feature obviously robotic enemies in them.
* A critical plot point in ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'', and, consequentially, the prequel VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia. Between those two games and their respective backstories, mankind manages to shoot itself in the metaphorical foot fairly often with a magitech WaveMotionGun, causing no less then at ''least'' four AndManGrewProud moments over the course of an 8000 year period.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' has technology known as Blastia that does everything from control drinking water to power lights to create gigantic barriers that keep monsters at bay. Unfortunately, it's also a form of LostTechnology that has to be excavated, rare enough that it can't be freely distributed despite the high demand, and powered by a type of energy that's very toxic when concentrated. [[spoiler:Then there's the whole overuse-summons-a-world-eating-EldritchAbomination issue...]]
* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfEternia'', the entire land of Celestia is run by captured Craymels or minor spirits. In fact, the only reason Inferia, the starting world, is still in a Middle Ages setting is because of their moral refusal to capture Craymels (although they view it more as desecration).
* Both vehicles in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', the Elemental Cargo and the Rheaird, are powered by mana. The former is a cargo ship [[CargoShip (not that kind)]] that uses water mana to surf on the water. The latter is a jet ski-like thing that uses electric mana to fly. The ancient technology that was lost in the Kharlan war is actually called "Magitechnology."
* Then in ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' and its sequel we have Spyrix and Spyrite, both powered by the elemental spirits that compose that world. One of the main problems in the first game is that the former technology kills said spirits, which would eventually cause them to run out, killing all life on the planet, which is why the latter is developed at the end of the first game, which accomplishes the same thing without killing the spirits.
* The [[AMechByAnyOtherName ATACs]] of ''VideoGame/VanguardBandits'' are powered by [[PowerCrystal magic gems]], and controlled by the thoughts of the pilot.
* ''VideoGame/UnwrittenLegends'', A modern [[MultiUserDungeon MUD]] has an entire class based around this concept
* The Defiant faction in ''VideoGame/{{Rift}}'' use a lot of it. The term "magitech" is even used in-game.
* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'''s world seems to run on magitek, with its mana-powered {{Ray Gun}}s and RocketBoots.
* The hero of ''VideoGame/{{Hagane}}'' is a robotic ninja powered by a pair of ancestral statues, and many of the enemies also use a combination of sorcery and technology.
* In ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', the Rakatans were stated to have developed technology powered by the dark side of the Force. When the Rakatans were infected by a plague that cut off their connection to the Force, all their technology failed and their civilization collapsed.
* The Bydo from ''VideoGame/RType'' are canonically stated to be biomagitek -- they're a race of creatures created with a combination of magic and superscience as a super-weapon in the distant future.
* Averted in ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura''. Even though magic and technology are both present and play an important role in the setting, there is no Magitek, since magic and technology are mutually exclusive (due to, basically, magic breaking the laws of physics and technology making use of and strengthening them). With one exception: Bronwyck's Gun. A design from Vendigroth that employs inherently magical mithril metal to generate volatile bursts of magic and fire them.
* The vanished Dwemer were the undisputed masters of MagiTek in the world of ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''. Every piece of Dwemer tech is a fusion of magic and engineering that makes mere enchanting look like a joke. And then, of course, there's good ol' [[ScienceFantasy Michael]] [[MindScrew Kirkbride]], former developer and lore writer, who is known for posting some (possibly non-canon) works on the lore forums, including the Loveletter from the Fifth Era, a cryptic warning from the future, and Kinmune, about a robot trapped in the past.
* This cropped up every now and then in the old VideoGame/MightAndMagic verse -- while most [[{{Precursor}} Ancient]] technology is [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens sufficiently advanced]] that it is impossible to judge if it utilizes [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane magic or is simply really advanced technology]], their world-creating/destroying tecniques explicitly utilizes manipulation of the Elemental Planes. On the worlds left in the Silence, magic is often used to side-step certain limitations the otherwise medievalish societies would face with technology: protection from wear-and-tear for clothing and armor, slightly hotter forges, cannons capable of sinking an entire fleet with a single shot...
* ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' features weapons that fire bullets and lasers and the like, but are all clearly magical.
* In ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'', the technology used by the Shinkoku and later the Seven Deities is powered by an energy source called "Mantra" which is created either by prayer from mortals, or processed directly from mortal souls. The latter allows for acquisition of Mantra faster, [[HumanResources at the obvious expense of human life]], while the former allows for [[GodNeedsPrayerBadly a steady supply of energy without people dying]]. The majority of this power is collected in a massive superfortress in orbit known as the Karma Fortress, which is used to power a WaveMotionGun known at the Brahmastra whose sole purpose is to defeat Gohma Vlitra, a continent-sized monster that appears every several thousand years. The individual demigods are also powered by ambient Mantra, with the the Eight Guardian Generals empowered by an "affinity" that generates and draws upon Mantra when they feel a strong emotion. Asura's affinity, for example, is Wrath, so when he gets pissed [[UnstoppableRage his cybernetic body draws upon more power]]. The Mantra is also controlled and directed by a "Priestess" who has an unusual talent for directing Mantra, witht he current Priestess being Asura's daughter, Mithra. Ultimately, [[spoiler: the other Guardians betray Asura to take Mithra and use her to control the Mantra while they establish a brutal regime to harvest Mantra from humanity through systematic murder.]] Asura is....[[UnstoppableRage less]] [[PapaWolf than]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge pleased.]]
* The Asura in ''VideoGame/GuildWars'' and ''VideoGame/GuildWars2'' are diminutive geniuses with an advanced understanding of magic, such that they use it in constructing GOLEM units [[FunWithAcronyms (Genius-Operated Living Enchanted Manifestations)]], power suits, and complex, magic-based energy grids.
* The Alchemist, one of the playable characters in ''VideoGame/{{Torchlight}}'', generally follows in a somewhat SteamPunk mold applying magical devices powered by [[GreenRocks Ember]]. By [[VideoGame/TorchlightII the sequel]] he sports what's best describable as a MiniMecha and full-on magical assault rifle, while the Engineer takes up the role of Magitek-heavy playable character.
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', the end of the game has [[spoiler: Anders blow up the Chantry with a bomb made of magically augmented gunpowder]].
* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog''. Chaos Emeralds. You know the drill by now. In ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'', the [[HumongousMecha Great Eggman Robo]] uses the Master Emerald for a WaveMotionGun while [[EvilKnockoff Mecha Sonic]] super charges himself with it to enter a SuperMode. In ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', it's shown that it's possible to create a fake Emerald [[spoiler:that can actually be used to perform Chaos Control]]. The same game also revealed that Professor Gerald Robotnik created the Eclipse Cannon, a powerful KillSat fueled by the seven Emeralds. ''VideoGame/SonicBattle'' has Eggman shatter a Chaos Emerald and use the shards to power his army of Phi robots. In ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Advance|Series}} 3'' Eggman uses the Emeralds to break the world into pieces, something he goes on to do again in ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed''.
* ''VideoGame/SeriousSam''
** Features a lot of "technomagical" technology, all reversed-engineered from ancient Sirian technology. Two of Sam's magical weapons are his [[RevolversAreJustBetter revolvers]] (whose magic grants the guns BottomlessMagazines) and the [[{{BFG}} SBC Cannon]] (a portable ''[[SchizoTech cannonball cannon]]'' that is effectively the most powerful weapon in his arsenal). The technomagical stuff isn't only limited to Sam though. BigBad Mental has an army which consists of [[OffWithHisHead headless]] [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombies]] armed with magic missile launchers, [[CuteMonsterGirl harpies]] who fire magical darts, [[MultiarmedAndDangerous four-armed alien lizards]] who agreed to fight for Mental in exchange for magical powers, cyborg monsters armed with rockets or [[FrickinLaserBeams lasers]], skinless [[PsychoForHire mercenaries]].
** ''Serious Sam 2'' one ups this by having a fairy tale-themed planet. Naturally, new members of Mental's Alliance consisted of anything which can cast magic and shoot a machinegun.
* ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'', like its SpiritualSuccessor Blazblue above, has a setting best described as "Industrial Fantasy", where future science has discovered a fantastic energy source which is literally described as ''Magic'', which sits side by side with the DieselPunk that arose after the hundred year war against the Gears. Though Magic is ostensibly a science, since it produced the [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke Gears]], it still gives us (among others) swords that spit lightning and fire, living shadows that possess corpses, a Homunculus, and a vampire.
* ''VideoGame/WildStar'', despite being a SpaceWestern, has this in spades, most especially with the [[TheGunslinger spellslingers]] who use pistols imbued with magical energy.
* The primary realm of Eberron in the MMORPG ''VideoGame/DungeonsAndDragonsOnline'' uses airships (see page image) as guild clubhouses, effectively, and House Cannith, home of the Artificers, who animate living and non-living constructs as well as use technology that emulates magic abilities.
* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' calls this "hextech", and most of the technology in the game utilizes it. The hextech-themed champions are associated with one of two technology-oriented city-states: the lawful-aligned Piltover, and the chaotic-aligned Zaun. Some of the more interesting examples of hextech include a hammer that can transform into an energy cannon, and a cyborg mad scientist with a third, mechanical arm that fires chaos beams.
* In a way, Dunwall in ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}''. All of its technology is powered by whale oil, an incredibly efficient fuel. The Heart describes the whales as mystical creatures, which is why the oil rendered from their flesh has properties that cannot be adequately explained by scientists. All of Dunwall runs on magic.
* The [[TheKingdom Commonwealth of Esotre]] in the ''VideoGame/{{Ravenmark}}'' series specializes in this, being too small a nation to be able to match traditional military strength against its neighbors. One of their greatest inventions is gunpowder, which involves the use of earth magic to release the internal energy of certain type of rocks. Thus, their front-line troops are armed with flintlock muskets, while their elite Greyjacket regiments have rifles. Besides this, they also use phylacteries for teleportation, creating an elaborate PortalNetwork with the hubs in their capital (and only) city of Silvergate. The director of their Royal Army’s Research Facility, Cyril F'Ourier, is known as the [[MadScientist Madmachiner]] for creating bizarre (and often dangerous) magitek devices. The latest examples include [[AMechByAnyOtherName Jabberwockies]] (a walking robot that spews lava) and the [[HoverTank Rath Platform]] (self-propelled artillery kept aloft by constant gunpowder explosions).
* The world of the ''Videogame/{{Awakening}}'' games runs on a combination of magic, energy crystals, and industrial-age technology. The Skyward Kingdom and its fleet of airships runs on a combination of power crystals and technology to keep it afloat in the sky.
* The devices in ''VideoGame/{{Teslagrad}}'' seem to mostly be this. While they primarily work using magnetism, the things they make it do are well into the magical side of things. They were also invented by a wizard.
* It is implied that a lot of the weapons and tools Link finds squirreled away in the various temples and dungeons he explores in ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series is actually magitek. The most obvious example is his companion, Fi, in ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', who is considered a "Sword Spirit", but behaves like a RobotGirl despite possibly being thousands of years old.
* All of the magic present in ''Videogame/{{Nier}}'' is the product of scientific experiments performed on the remains of [[spoiler:the Grotesquerie Queen and the red dragon Angelus]]. The results are a mix of technology and magic such as android sorceresses, humans turned into magical skeletal robots for use as living weapons, clones magically linked to the souls of the people who served as their templates, and mass-produced magical grimoires empowered by [[spoiler:the souls of people who gained magic through experiments]]. All of these have their share of flaws, and those flaws end up causing a great deal of tragedy in the game.
* In ''Franchise/StarCraft'', the Terran [[InvisibilityCloak Cloaking Device]] runs off the users PsychicPowers. Similarly, ''all'' Protoss tech is psi-powered, but much more efficiently so since the 'toss passively harness Psi, rather than actively like the Terrans, who run the risk of [[PsychicNosebleed hurting themselves if they do it too much.]]
* Advent tech in ''VideoGame/SinsOfASolarEmpire'' is based off something called "[=PsiTech=]" which, as the name suggests, use psychic powers rather than proper fuel.
* There are many [[GameMod mods]] for VideoGame/{{Minecraft}} that focus on advanced technology and industry, and many others focusing on magic. These are often installed alongside each other, usually from pre-packaged "mod packs" like Feed The Beast. In these situations, this is to be expected.
** The mod Thaumic Energistics takes this UpToEleven: as an addon for both VideoGame/{{Thaumcraft}} (likely the most popular and extensive magic-themed mod) and Applied Energistics (a mod that lets you store items in digital networks), it enables you to use your Applied Energistics network to store magical essentia. There's even a device that allows a mystical infusion altar to draw essentia directly from said digital network instead of from warded jars.
* The world of ''VideoGame/LufiaCurseOfTheSinistrals'' runs on energy cores, devices excavated from the ruins of ancient civilizations. Maxim's friend [[MadScientist Lexis Shaia]] happens to be famous for his study of and developments regarding energy cores. [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration They're even used to justify the characters' special attacks]], as the energy cores attached to the party members' weapons coupled with their user's [[KiManipulation energy waves]] can allow them to perform fantastic attacks or even conjure elemental blasts.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Engine Machines in ''VisualNovel/ShikkokuNoSharnoth'' appear to work like this, though the story tries to deny it. But with the precedent set by its predecessor ''VisualNovel/SekienNoInganock'' it becomes hard to deny.
* Magic machines are ubiquitous in ''VisualNovel/AnOctaveHigher''. Every single piece of technology in the kingdom of Overture, from drinking fountains to film projectors to flying cars to factory assembly lines and furnaces, requires magic to function; if you don't have enough {{Mana}} to cast spells, you can't even take a shower because the water is being summoned via magic.

* ''Webcomic/TwiceBlessed'' apparently has giant magic robots (golems, warforged, constructs).
* The world of ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'' abounds with this sort of thing. Some examples include:
** Using crystals (which may or may not be of the "ball" archetype) to communicate like telephones.
** Small crystals enchanted with a "Voice of the Titans" spell to make microphones.
** Creating lamps/light bulbs out of something carrying an illumination spell.
** Taking musical instruments, e.g. guitars, and adding a healthy dose of electrical magic to create electric guitars.
** [[spoiler:The epilogue involves the entire planet choosing this, as humans unlock their technological potential through an industrial revolution while the orcs handle their awakened shaman magic. The end result will likely involve multiple breakthroughs in magitek.]]
* In ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' [[GadgeteerGenius Kat]] was rather bewildered to find out that a "[[SuperPrototype prototype]]" robot has no recognizable power source or drive system whatsoever, but as soon as you insert a PersonalityChip he starts moving around on his own. Old "robots" turned out to be very fancyful, mechanically sound {{golem}}s. What one might call their "integrated circuits" are actually runic symbols carved on their interior parts; these can be damaged as easily as a normal circuit, but are somewhat easier to repair.
** Also, Mrs. Donlan has a computer that includes "just enough etheric technology" to allow it to perform its task. Which is to ward off a dangerous spirit.
** However, despite its preponderance, the Court at large apparently frowns on Magitek as cheating.
* In a subscription-only section of the ''{{Drowtales}}'' website, there's an on-going story arc about the Drow society 100 000 years in the future (from the main story's point), Space Age, where mana powers and controls EVERYTHING (including but not limited to spaceship flight, weapons, wormhole travel, faster-than-light communications, their internet...), to the point where their first encounter with "Earth humans" goes undetected because their traditional sensors are incapable of detecting objects that are not infused with mana, although one of the characters eventually creates bio-signature dectectors to good effect.
* ''[[http://brokenspacecomic.com Broken Space]]'' features technology powered by a combination of gears, steam, and mystical glyphs.
* From ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20081205 side story]]:
--> '''Agatha''' as '''Cinderella''': Any sufficiently analyzed magic is indistinguishable [[ForScience from science!]]"
* From [[http://keychain.patternspider.net/archive/koc0109.html this]] ''Webcomic/KeychainOfCreation'': "Misho, how is this cart bigger on the inside than the outside?" "I know ''magic science''."
* Discussed/Lampshaded in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0344.html this]] ''[[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Order of the Stick]]'' when Vaarsuvius comments on how Cliffport looks anachronistic for a "presumed medieval time period". Also quotes Niven's corollary when trying to rationalize Durkon's response of "It be magic."
** Also seen in various magical luxuries like Xykon's widescreen CrystalBall and "Teevo" magical video recorder.
** A Coffee maker is also seen which, despite being seen plugged into a power outlet, can be surmised to work off of magic.
* In ''[[WebComic/EightBitTheater 8-Bit Theater]]'', the visible Sky Castle is described as being an "ancient flying techno-magic castle". There's also [[strike:Warmech]], [[PaperthinDisguise that completely human chap with the laser]], and the Datasphere, a powerful data-storing device that will [[MySkullRunnethOver drive you insane if you read it]].
* Daria of ''Webcomic/AMagicalRoommate'' is a pioneer of Magitek, as it is a school of magic that remains unnamed.
* ''Webcomic/MSFHigh'' is littered with it but the most noticeable is the Bio Warp drive, FTL through magic.
* It's kept in the background but also present in ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' with things like [[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Vol_1052.php ghirphon based public transit]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Chirault}}'' has two-way radios and what appears to be a city-wide public announcement system, presumably powered by magic because it's a pseudo-Medieval fantasy setting.
* In ''Webcomic/TheWotch'', the T.C.D. (Transparent Cylinder of Death, which doesn't actually kill people) is a machine that can permanently [[GenderBender changes males into females]] and strengthens their feminine pride.
* In ''Webcomic/TalesOfTheQuestor'', most Racconnan technology is powered by lux, which technically [[DoingInTheWizard isn't magic but is commonly mistaken for it]]. And they seem to still use it [[Webcomic/QuentynQuinnSpaceRanger in the interstellar age]], [[http://www.rhjunior.com/QQSR/00074.html even more, with few wizard types.]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has very advanced technology and magic existing side by side intially. They start to blend later; for example one character uses a combination of {{alchemy}} and Boolean logic to combine a CrystalBall with a [[MagicalComputer super computer]] to see all locations at once.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': While the [[TransformationRay transformation gun]] is a piece of [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum alien technology]] -- with different forms programmed on Tedd's computer and replaceable parts -- it definitely uses magic to operate. However, there's not very much magitek in the setting. (Unless you consider the Uryuom-human hybrids as biomagitek.)
* In ''Webcomic/DubiousCompany'', Walter is a [[GadgeteerGenius magitek engineer]] and comes from a [[AdvancedAncientAcropolis nation]] that excels in it. His and [[AwesomeByAnalysis Sal's]] knowledge of magical theory also allows them to [[AntiMagic dissect]] and [[BadassBookworm formulate]] spells, even though they themselves [[BadassNormal cannot cast]] them.
* In ''Webcomic/TheRedStar'', warfare makes heavy use of technology and magic in combination.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Gaia}}'' there are [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/gaia/2012/01/17/the-red-hall-032/ cameras]], [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/gaia/2012/10/09/shadowdancers-052/ cable cars]], [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/gaia/2013/01/01/shadowdancers-075/ sophisticated security systems]], etc, all which run on magic.
* ''Webcomic/CrimsonFlag'' has airships with cannons that fire energy blasts, both magic. And crystal balls used as videophones.
* ''Webcomic/BeachesAndBasilisks'' has giant robots powered by a combination of magic and technology. Also, several character carry spellphones, which are magically-enabled cellphones.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Kaspall}}'' mirrors are used like phones, with [[http://www.kaspall.com/comic/2006/08/05 operators]].
* ''Webcomic/UseSwordOnMonster''
** Agent Haung specialises in this. She has a tablet computer that can hack spells and duplicate their effects, with an InstantRunes app selection that Oz describes as "Like Apple had started making tarot cards".
** This also seems to be the standard operating procedure of the dwarven company Arcforge. Their most notable creations in the story so far are "thaumites", which are magical {{nanotech}}, leading inevitably to magical [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Borg]] and magical GreyGoo.
* Implied to be widespread in ''Webcomic/TheFarSideOfUtopia'' considering the programs named at [[WizardingSchool Levinworth Academy]] are "Magic Theory and Technology" and "Magical Use and Engineering". Additionally autocasters seems to be a cross between wands, guns, and computers.
* [[http://www.heroes-comic.com Heroes Inc.]] is a sprite comic whose plot ties in heavily to that of the TropeNamer ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', and as would be expected, the comic makes significant use of magitek borrowed from the game.
* ''Webcomic/TheStoryOfAnima'' has [[http://tapastic.com/episode/50809 Catalysts]], minerals that allow [[SoulPower Anima power]] to be harnessed into technology.
* ''Webcomic/BasketsOfGuts'': [[OurHomunculiAreDifferent Homunculi]]-based magic batteries are used in every piece of technology from quite complicated to [[MundaneUtility completely trivial]].
* ''Webcomic/AliceAndTheNightmare'': everything in Wonderland, from mini-fridges to carriages (without horses) is powered by dream energy of Earth humans.

* The Online RPG ''VideoGame/AdventureQuest'' features a lizard/human race called the Drakel. They use incredible knowledge of both Magic and Science to create armor and weaponry that is implausible even on our scale. They ignore this trope by calling the system "Magiscience". It is possible for the player to obtain several Drakel-made items (including PoweredArmor, an [[DeflectorShield energy shield]], and a rocket launcher [temporarily]), and one quest involves hunting and killing [[TwentyBearAsses 10 assassin DrakBots]] for their power crystals in order to create a sword.
* In ''ArcanaMagi'', Mana is a source of energy akin to electricity, with kinetic and potential types. Avalon Tech Enterprises invents machines and magical items that uses Mana as its energy source to operate.
* ''Literature/TalesOfMU'' goes out of its way to make a modern world built purely on a [[StandardFantasySetting D&D-styled-setting]].
* In Literature/DeucalionChronicles, worlds that are part of the Crossworld Union possess an astounding level of magic-based technology.
* EquestriaChronicles has [[GenderBender transgender pins,]] [[ClockworkCreature Tabitha the tinkercorn]], [[CoolCar and Tinkertop's autocart.]] All magic powered.
* In ''Literature/{{Phaeton}}'' the Phaetonians were masters of magic and science and of couse the combination of the two, few races have ever cracked the so called "Metatech Code".
* ''Podcast/MetamorCity'' is a world where technology developed alongside magic, it can be hard to tell whether a given device is magical or technological.
* The ''[[SCPFoundation GOC]]'' makes use of magitech frequently, including magical sensors and casting spells on tablets and with computers.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': The four main societies rely heavily on this in the form of a particular physical magic referred to as "bending", to the point where their technology parallels our own. In fact, non-magical complex devices are occasionally referred to as "fake bending" (example: explosives = fake firebending).
** The Earth Kingdom runs complicated metro transit and postal systems by using Earthbenders to "bend" the cargo across stone tracks, with the trains themselves made of stone as well. It also has advanced construction (with the largest and most elaborate cities in the world) and possibly agriculture (which could explain how Ba Sing Se is able to maintain vast tracts of farmland from within its city wall), eventually developing earthbending-powered tanks as well.
** The Air Nomads traveled with the help of gliders supported by airbending.
** The Water Tribes, among other things, have [[HealingHands largely overwritten]] the need for traditional medicine. The canal lock system used for the capital city of the Northern Water Tribe also runs on waterbending (which was also likely used to construct the city itself, given that its largest and most elaborate buildings seem to be made completely of ice). They also eventually create waterbending-propelled ''submarines''.
** The Fire Nation's innate ability to control, well, fire has allowed it to undergo an all-out industrial revolution, with plenty of [[SteamPunk steam powered]] machines, such as tanks and drills. Unlike the other nations, however, much of its more advanced technology can be fully operated by non-benders as well.
** In general, the Avatar world implies that there are more ''peaceful'' uses for Bending than there are combat uses. This makes sense given that bending, while uncommon, is not so much seen as a superpower as a special talent in the Avatar-verse (like double jointed or photographic memory), so people would use it for a variety of purposes.
* This is played with in SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra.'' Seventy years later, and the ''Avatar'' world has much more advanced technology, most of which can run without bending, such as automobiles, radios, and biplanes; even the Earth Kingdom's transit system from the original show has replaced its Earthbenders with conventional engines. It's even a plot point in Season 1, where the most technologically advanced faction are the [[AntiMagicalFaction anti-bending]] Equalists. Nevertheless, there's still plenty of room for bending-based technology; power plants in Republic City are staffed by Firebenders using lightning to help power the electrical grid, and battleship cannons are primarily used to increase the power of bending attacks.
** The ultimate example of this for the entire franchise happens in Season 4, when Kuvira's Earth Empire unveils [[spoiler:a HumongousMecha powered by spirit vines, wielding a giant energy cannon that's also powered by spirit vines. Varrick already concluded that spirits and science do NOT mix]]. To top it all off, [[spoiler:it can roughly approximate a MotionCaptureMecha by having Kuvira metalbend trackballs to pilot it]].
* ''WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian'', especially the CrystalBall that functions like the internet.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse2002'' was full of this. Flying discs, [[SteamPunk steampunk]]y mecha-dragons, energy shields -- Practically every bit of technology was combined with magic. There were also technological devices using or enhancing magical artefacts, like a belt powered by rare magical water which punished the wearer with an electrical shock as soon as he tried to do evil.
* A lot of the magic in Disney's ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'' works by application of their {{Power Crystal}}s. Lamps are lit by touching the crystal to it something like a match and the stone fish-shaped vehicles have a mystical activation process of sticking the crystal in a hole, turning it halfway around, and then a quarter turn back, which is basically the motion of turning a key in a car's ignition. However, you've got to keep your hand on the inscription pad ''while doing it''. This is written on the vehicle, but when your people were stuck in flood-survival bunkers long enough to forget how to read their own writings...
* A lot of ghost-related gear in ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' comes off as magitek, both in terms of technology used by ghosts (such as Skulker's suit) and technology used by ghost-hunters, such as all the Fenton technology.
* The evil wizards in ''ThundarrTheBarbarian'' are just as likely to employ giant robots and war machines as magic spells.
* ''TheMagicSchoolBus'' has various abilities that are powered by devices such as the "shrinkerscope" and "mesmerglobber", which occasionally go on the fritz and require a trip to a mechanic at one point.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}''
** Coldstone, an [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot undead cyborg gargoyle]] created using Xanatos' technology and brought to life by Demona's magic.
** Demona's stone-by-night curse in "City of Stone" and plague in "Hunter's Moon" also used a combination of science and sorcery: The curse was broadcast throughout Manhattan using Xanatos' technology, while Xanatos' chemical disinfectant and Sevarius' carrier virus were integral scientific components to the plague. (The Fulfillment Spell and the Praying Gargoyle were the magical components.)
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'' had an episode where Lex realized he could use his clingy girlfriend [[HotWitch Tala]] as a power supply for his device to bring Brainiac back to life.
* ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'': The plot of "Super Sonic" involves an ancient computerized spellbook that actually [[SealedEvilInACan traps concentrated evil inside it]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** LaurenFaust's HandWave for any appearance of technology [[SchizoTech more advanced]] than that of [[MedievalEuropeanFantasy medieval Europe]] (namely, ones that run on electricity) is that it's [[ClarkesLawForGirlsToys powered by]] [[AWizardDidIt unicorn magic]].
** At the end of "May the Best Pet Win", an example of this is shown when Rainbow Dash's new pet tortoise Tank flies by wearing a visibly-enchanted propeller on his shell.
** In "The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000," the eponymous cider-making machine is powered by the Flim Flam brothers' unicorn magic.
** "The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well" features what looks remarkably like a [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/mlp/images/0/0c/Hoofer_Dam_S2E08.png hydro-electric dam]], suggesting it may be possible for the ponies to "generate" magic power in that way as well.
** Subverted by the industrial-sized pet hair dryer in "Just for Sidekicks", which does not have any visible energy source, plus Sweetie Belle's magic probably isn't stable enough to control such a device.
* In ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness The Light]] seems to be fond of mixing magic, biology, and technologies to carry out their EvilPlan. Their ultimate goal for season one is using "techno-sorcery" to create [[spoiler:Starrotech, which uses magic to fuse bits of Starro's body with nanobots to create the ultimate mind-control weapon]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', the Iacon relics are the crowning achievements of the ancient Transformers. Ratchet describes them as fusions of magic and technology.

* A Pakistani scientist had proposed using the power of the djinn to solve the [[http://www.nytimes.com/2001/11/02/world/nation-challenged-nuclear-fears-pakistani-atomic-expert-arrested-last-week-had.html?sec=&spon=&pagewanted=all 1998 energy crisis.]]
* NORAD's SantaClaus tracking. It is a real thing. You read that right. [[http://www.noradsanta.org/ And they even got a website!!]]
* MIT's [=AI=] Lab once possessed a mainframe computer [[http://www.catb.org/jargon/html/magic-story.html that seems to have been a primitive form of Magitek]].
* Quantum entanglement is the property of particles in the same state to react predictably and instantly when another (entangled) particle is measured or acted upon. This is partially a result of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. Quantum computers (which have not as of yet been made to work) use this property to transfer information.
* Quantum Mechanics as a whole can be thought of as being almost magical, due to its bizarre, common-sense-defying rules. Particles can be in two places or states at the same time, teleport randomly, act as both particles and waves simultaneously, and act instantly on each other over effectively infinite distances.
* Some anthropologists have actually defined magic as a type of pseudotechnology as it works on a perception of the laws of the universe rather than on a supplication of supernatural beings. That is the comparison with concepts of the supernatural is only the incidental one that both claim to be at least capable of affecting the universe in unusual way, but magic comes from the magician's ingenuity and is thus in a way no different then an engineer's "magic" which also as it happens has "fantastical" results but was built upon repeated experiments.
* Some forms of technology can sound like magic.
** For instance, steel is basically carbonized iron which means that a molten sword must be smothered in biological products. Imagine then what comes next; "This sword was bathed in the blood of [[VirginSacrifice a virgin sacrificed]] to the WarGod."
*** Damascus Steel in particular has turned out to follow Clarke's Law surprisingly closely. We now know that the superior quality of Damascus Steel came from the mystical power of the 'carbon nanotube'.
** The Mongol shamans practice of boiling drinking water to drive away "evil spirits."
* Both sides of the UsefulNotes/IronCurtain tried to produce weapons powered by, and/or producing supernatural energy. Whether or not the scientists found anything interesting is something still researched today.
* Alchemy was basically this. Much of the lab technology eventually used by real chemists (beakers, retorts, crucibles etc) was actually developed by alchemists first.
