Magic is a feature in VRMMOs  that can create a multitude of effects which can be used to diferent ends, depending on the reason to use certain spell.

This page is a list of those games that include magic and specifies the usage name and other factors of the magic on each one of them.

In Sword Art Online

According to Kirito, there is no magic in Sword Art Online, however the activation and effects of Sword Skills and the Crystals are considered to be the closest things to magic.

On fanon, Runes also exist, that allow the user to imbune his weapon or certain part of his/her body with certain element. By far, the only user of this ability is Asuka.

In ALfheim Online

The incantation for each spell in ALfheim Online consists of several «Words of Power» (力の言葉 Chikara no Kotoba), words in a language that is similar to old Norse, but is likely just derived from it. Each of these words has a specific meaning, thus similar spells share certain Words of Power. To use Magic, is also nesesary to have Magic Points (MP), which have a bar just bellow the one of Heal Points.

A spell is activated by extending or raising one's hand (with or without a weapon) and beginning the chant of a specific incantation. Once a hand is raised or extended, a sphere of «Words of Power» surrounds the caster and, as each word in the incantation is chanted, a line of the words becomes highlighted and the word that is chanted is brought to the front of the caster with the rest of the words in the line disappearing. If a spell is more difficult, it may be split into several parts by commas, with the sphere of words reforming every time a comma is reached while the words chanted after a comma are brought to a separate column in front of the caster. Once an incantation is completed, the chant is converted into two half rings that contain all of the words in a sentence. The two half rings move from behind the caster and gather at the caster's front, forming a symbol of the fairy race.

Spells in ALfheim Online usually have an elemental attribute, with each race being the most efficient with a certain element and its accompanying magic. However, each race can utilize spells of other elements as well, but the race will be most proficient in the element that they have an affinity for and might not be able to cast high-level magic in an element that they do not have an affinity for.

The affinity for elements of each race:
