* ''Manga/Gate'' is full of this. The basic premise is that a magical portal to another world suddenly opens up in modern Tokyo, and the city is attacked by an invading army of monsters and medieval soldiers from a fantasy world. Japan defeats the invading army with its modern weaponry and tactics, then sends its Japanese Ground-Self Defense Forces through the gate to secure it from the other side, defeat the ones behind the invasion, and establish diplomatic relationships wherever possible. This leads to some interesting conflicts, such as fire-breathing dragons versus fighter jets, or a halberd-wielding demogoddess fighting a team of special ops soldiers.

* ''VideoGame/{{Broforce}}'' was always this, having characters from various movies fighting such things like giant robots or colossal helicopters, but it went UpToEleven with ''Alien Infestation'' updates, which introduced a new fraction - [[LawyerFriendlyCameo tiny-veiled]] [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorphs]]. So, if you ever wondered how would heroes like [[Film/KillBill the Bride]], [[Film/Machete]], Franchise/{{Rambo}}, Film/{{Blade|Trilogy}} or Franchise/RoboCop fare against Aliens, you will be very happy to find out.
