* Even ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' and it's derivatives have this. Many settings (and many more[=DMs=] [[FantasyGunControl don't allow firearms]], but will gladly allow many weapons that, in real life, came about after, and sometimes as a direct consequence of, the invention and proliferation of guns in real life. Rapiers, a longtime standard of Bards and Rogues, are just one example.

* Let's begin at the beginning: ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''(and most other MedievalEuropeanFantasy settings for that matter) normally does not have firearms, yet you can usually get your hands on a rapier, a type of sword that wasn't developed until(and ''because of'') the proliferation of early guns.

** ''Pendragon'' is not above {{shout out}}s to later history either, including Merlin prophesying that the Pope would live in Avignon, and KingArthur quoting JohnFKennedy "ask not what your country can do for you..." before the Battle of Badon Hill.

** Note that this isn't even the most notable example. From the very start, where were magicians, knights, dragons, and the like along side stuff like tanks, military infantry, and [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot ridiculously human]] and {{Super Robot}}s.

* {{Warhammer}}

to:

* {{Warhammer}}''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}''



* {{Warhammer40000}} has this as well, with many troops (especially Orks) being armed with bladed melee weapons such as swords, [[AnAxeToGrind axes]], and warhammers, while others have machine guns, lasers, automatic bazookas, and space ships.
** Characterized even farther by the fact that the lore states there are planets that have slid back technologically to a MedievalStasis from being cut-off from other worlds, which may have been used at one point in early source books to try and incorporate the {{Warhammer}} Fantasy Battle universe into that of 40k.
