Implied: naturalistic (not enforceable) or rare magic (not enforceable)
Low fantasy downplays the fantasy elements, even almost completely subduing magic, epic aspects, and even putting them in a real-world setting or something closely related to it. These are likely considered more realistic and grittier representations of fantasy genre overall, even in comparison to dark fantasy in terms of the latter.
