When something or someone is ''literally'' made of magic, or at least an [[AppliedPhlebotinum equivalent]].

This shouldn't be confused with MadeOfPhlebotinum, where 'magic' makes the setting work at all (it does count if the setting ''itself'' is made of magic). You may occasionally find someone to be Made Of ''[[MadeOfEvil Evil]]'' Magic. A PlaceOfPower is usually MadeOfMagic, as well as [[PureMagicBeing many supernatural beings]].

Creatures that are made of magic may in fact be a PureMagicBeing, or an EnergyBeing, depending on whether the setting has more of a ScienceFiction or a {{Fantasy}} flavor. In a ScienceFantasy setting, the creature might be [[TakeAThirdOption both]].

They are most likely ''very'' dependent on {{mana}} to exist. If the setting is chock-full, no problem. If not....

Compare PureEnergy.

* The entire {{Shinigami}}-world of ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' is ''[[UpToEleven made]]'' from 'spirit particles', making those skills that rely on [[EnergyAbsorption absorbing]] said particles many times more powerful. There's some fairly nifty scenes where you can see nearby walls and buildings slowly dissolving as the particles are absorbed and redirected into an attack...
* The Living Programs (including Wolkenritter and Materials) in the ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' series are constructs made out of magical energy. Also, the Unison Devices are probably thus, too.
* The Magical World, and most residents in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', are MadeOfMagic. This makes them vulnerable to beings able to manipulate their substance. (And gives the heroes a resistance since they're made of "mundane" matter.)
* Certain beings (phenomenons, individuals) in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' are made of AIM-field. Most of the time they spontaneously come into existence. [[TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering You can't have so many Espers (and Mages) living so close together, all practicing so much crazy powers, and not expect some feedback.]]
* The Servants (Heroic Spirits) in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and ''LightNovel/FateZero'' are made of Mana, and will disappear when their Master can no longer channel Mana into them [[spoiler:such as when Lancelot kills Kariya by overdraining the latter's Mana]]. A lesser version of this are the Homunculus [[spoiler:such as Irisviel and her daughter Ilyasviel]] who are walking circuits of magic in the shape of human beings.
* In ''DragonBall'', this is said to be the origin of Majin Buu, who was conjured into existence by an extremely powerful wizard named Bibidi.


[[folder: Comics ]]

* ''GreenLantern'' Hal Jordan recreates his [[DoomedHometown destroyed hometown]] of Coast City using his [[GreenLanternRing power ring]].


[[folder: Literature ]]

* Everything in the magical world in ''Literature/DarkLordOfDerkholm'' contains magic to the point that people from another world were digging up dirt in that world and smuggling it into their magic-less world to do magic (and make a lot of cash).
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' isn't made of magic, but it is explicitly noted in the novel ''Discworld/TheLastHero'' that without magic the turtle would die, the seas run dry, the sun burn out and crash, and the elephants would cease to exist altogether. And that would happen within a few seconds of magic ceasing to exist.
** A more direct example is the tower Coin constructs in ''Discworld/{{Sourcery}}'' which is literally willed into being from magic made solid:
-->'''Coin: '''It is made of magic. Raw magic. Solidified. Curdled. Renewed from second to second. Could you imagine a better substance to build the new home of sourcery?
* ''Literature/ThePrincessSeries'' features [[spoiler: the Seven Dwarves]] as living representations of elements, the last of which is magic.
* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', the [[EldritchLocation Nevernever]] and all its [[OurSpiritsAreDifferent inhabitants]] are this.
* Spren in ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''. They are tiny pieces of power from one or more gods, given a kind of life by people's emotions and thoughts. Some are essentially animals in their own Realm while others are intelligent enough to have a society. Also, at least some of the intelligent ones can form bonds with humans that allow the spren to maintain their intelligence when manifesting in the Physical Realm, and give the human magical powers.
* In the ''Literature/YoungWizards'' series Nita's charm bracelet, which allows her to store pre-cast spells, is a complicated structure of magical energy made tangible by giving it "virtual mass". And one of those pre-cast spells, which produces [[FrickinLaserBeams a terawatt particle beam]], tangibly manifests as a laser rifle.


[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* In ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', The Amazing Mystico and Janet [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APoweyWW2vg put up blocks of flats]] using the power of hypnosis.
-->Of course they're safe. There's absolutely no doubt about that. They are as strong, solid and as safe as any other building method in this country. Provided of course people believe in them.
* In ''Series/{{Merlin 1998}}'', a wide variety of creatures including [[spoiler:Queen Mab]] are this. And, in that setting, magic is definitely ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve...
* In ''Series/{{Merlin 2008}}'', [[spoiler:Merlin himself]] qualifies. Of course, since this is not a setting where GodsNeedPrayerBadly, he'll be immortal until the second age of KingArthur.

[[folder: Tabletop Games ]]

* The world of ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' is the great grand master pimp-daddy of this trope, and takes it for all it's worth. ''Everything'', from the lowliest [[PunyEarthlings mortal]], to the [[BigGood Unconquered Sun]], from the most solid center of [[FlatWorld Creation]], to the pure chaos of the [[ChaosWorld Wyld]], is made of [[{{Mana}} Essence]].
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''
** Outsiders are beings from [[AlternateDimension Alternate Dimensions]] called the Outer Planes and are made from their respective magical birthplaces. Pre-4th edition, they were:
*** [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Fiends]] as a whole are made from the lower planes, with [[ChaoticEvil Demons]], [[NeutralEvil Yugoloths]], and [[LawfulEvil Devils]] coming from the Abyss, Gray Waste, and Baator respectively.
*** [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Angels]] and other celestial beings come from the upper planes, with [[LawfulGood Archons]], [[NeutralGood Guardinals]] and [[ChaoticGood Eladrin]] coming from Mount Celestia, Elysium, and Arborea respectively. Angels uniquely can come from any of the celestial planes, and have no infernal counterpart.
** Outside even the Outer Planes lies the [[EldritchLocation Far Realm]], which can be considered the home of [[StarFishAlien Pure Alien]] magic.
** Living Spells, as the name suggests, are spells that have taken on a life of their own.
** Grisgols are made of magical items assembled as a humanoid body.
* ''Everything'' (save for Planeswalkers) in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering''. According to Wizards' MagiBabble, every card you play are Mana-based magical copies of beings existing on the other side of Blind Eternity. (Prior to this {{Retcon}} they were the real thing, summoned and enslaved by your might. [[YouBastard Guess that made some players feel bad.]])
** As more inclusive examples, angels and demons are manifestations of white and black mana respectively, and so are possibly other beings like archons.
** The [[EldritchAbomination Eldrazi]] are made of colorless mana, since the spirit dragon Ugin fed them his colorless Ghostfire to trap them in physical forms that could be sealed away. Prior to this, the Eldrazi were bodiless malevolent entities that wandered the Blind Eternities.
** The Aetherborn of [[SteamPunk Kaladesh]] are the ones who [[WeAreAsMayflies are as mayflies]] in that particular setting, because they're made of the inherent magical energy that permeates the plane and quickly leak it, thus losing their life force in short order.
* Daemons in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' are composed of pure magic - the raw substance of Chaos itself.
* Will Workers can learn to make artifacts and creatures out of the raw stuff of magic when they've learned the upper levels of the Prime sphere in ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension''.


[[folder: Video Games ]]

* Ledgermayne, the Seventh Lord of Chaos from ''VideoGame/AdventureQuestWorlds'', is a being of chaorrupted mana incarnate.
* Espers in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', which is a very bad thing since the BigBad [[AGodAmI makes himself into the god of magic]]. Also several enemies, most notably the Ultima / Atma weapon and everything in the Cult of Kefka tower, meaning [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration they die if their MP are depleted]].
* Every entity that exists in the UG in ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' is made of matter called Soul.
* In ''VideoGame/ValkyrieProfile'' games, the Valkyrie employ souls of dead warrior re-materialized in the world with [[CallAHitPointASmeerp Divine Materialization Energy]]. So while in the world, they are made of Divine magic. [[spoiler:That this includes the Valkyrie is an important point in the game, beyond being able to heal her with things that heal materialized Einherjars.]]
* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic III: Armageddon's Blade'' featured Magic Elementals, who were {{Elemental Embodiment}}s of [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin magic]].
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has Anveena who is the human form of the Sunwell. The Sunwell is literally nothing BUT a mass of huge magical energy. It also serves as the key to allow Kil'jaeden and other Burning Legion nasties into the world, but Anveena was having none of this and killed herself to stop it all (the portal was already open at the time, her death would close it). After, an alien prophet used the spark of a dead EnergyBeing angel to 'revive' the Sunwell, but Anveena stayed 'dead'.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', all monsters are composed of magic, in contrast to humans being made mostly of physical matter. [[spoiler:Because monsters are magical beings, they instantly turn to dust when they die and their souls are weak compared to a human's soul.]]


[[folder: Web Comics ]]

* Jareth's {{Crystal Ball}}s and the Erlkönig's {{Power Crystal}}s in ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' (and probably also in its SpinOff ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'') well aren't props but literal magic spells.
* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Susan's summoned objects are actually temporary magical copies of the items in her chest (and not the transported items themselves) which make them this.


[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* Aku, the BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', is made of a piece of the elemental chaos of the universe. Also, Jack's sword is made of the goodness of his father.
* In the ''{{Franchise/Ben10}}'' franchise, {{Mana}} is both LifeEnergy and the fuel for magic. There's a race of EnergyBeing called Anodites who are literally made of the stuff. So is the dimension known as Ledgerdomain, the MagicalLand and EldritchLocation from which all magic in the {{Multiverse}} flows. It's the home of the WitchSpecies which spawned recurring villains Hex and Charmcaster. It's also home to the Alpha Rune, which is inscribed with [[IKnowYourTrueName the true name]] of magic itself, making its wielder nigh omnipotent, in or out of Ledgerdomain.
