* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' includes--in addition things that come straight from the imagination of the artist or only exist in the fantasy genre--many types of weaponry, armor, architecture, costumes, ships, etc. that did exist in real life, but in widely separate time periods. That's what gives us things like 14th century helmets, 16th century palaces, 17th century frigates, and 18th century ballgowns all mixed up together. It is a fantasy work incorporating historical elements rather than a historical work incorporating fantasy elements, so it's best to just appreciate the level of detail. The author is on record as saying he's perfectly aware that he depicts forms of armor, for example, that weren't all used at the same time, but decided to throw in [[RuleOfCool whatever he thought would be cool]] instead of limiting himself.

* OsamuTezuka loved to throw in gross anachronisms into his historical works. The first volume of ''Manga/{{Phoenix}}'', for instance, has an ancient Japanese general leave to read a ''Literature/JamesBond'' novel (which may be a {{Woolseyism}} on the part of the translator), and things like televisions and refrigerators are worked into other volumes of the series via BambooTechnology.

* ''LightNovel/TheCircumstancesLeadingToWaltrautesMarriage'' is set in NorseMythology, but features things like the metric system and modern day-style swimsuits. The main characters do question where these things come from.

* ''Manga/SoredemoSekaiWaUtsukushii'' averts it for most of the series, which leans toward a vaguely 18th-Century sensibility, particularly with regards to architecture and fashions. However, once the story returns to Nike's home country we're treated to, of all things, a full-blown idol concert, complete with speakers, spotlights, and wireless microphones. And later on, during [[spoiler:Nike and Livi's formal engagement ceremony]], they bring out what looks like a ''film projector''. An exasperated Neil even comments on how he has no idea what these things are supposed to be.
