* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and ''LightNovel/FateZero''. It has [[BackStab Assassin]] vs [[MasterSwordsman Saber]] vs [[UniversalDriversLicense Rider]] vs Archer vs [[TheBerserker Berserker]] vs [[TheArchmage Caster]] vs [[BladeOnAStick Lancer]] [[spoiler:vs [[AntiHero Avenger]] (in one of the previous wars)]]. And all classes are represented by historical, mythological or legendary character (or sometimes original fictional one). It could be described [[{{Pun}} as]] [[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Epic]] vs [[MemeticMutation Gar]]. Even then nothing comes close to the awesome absurdity of Gilgamesh in an Ancient Sumerian/Indian spaceship vs Berserker ([[spoiler:Sir Lancelot]]) in an F-15 fighter jet. And at the same time, KingArthur and UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat fighting Franchise/{{Cthulhu|Mythos}}.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'': Brook vs. Ryuuma. An [[DemBones animated skeleton]] [[MasterSwordsman swordfighting]] [[{{Samurai}} a samurai]] [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies zombie]]. Hell, much of the Thriller Bark arc is literally {{Pirates}} vs. Zombies. The zombies were technically pirates as well, and they included the aforementioned samurai, zombie furniture, and a [[OurGiantsAreDifferent zombified demonic giant]], which can be piloted like a [[HumongousMecha giant robot]].

* DragonballZ every single fight is this trope, very early in the series it was humans vs monsters with a few robots thrown in and then it's Martial artists vs Demons. In the next series we got aliens get involved [[spoiler: and it turns out main hero Goku was alien all along]] and then we got androids and a big green bug man made of the cells of our heroes the "Z-fighters". finally in the last sagas wizards, Demon Kings, bubble gum-monsters and Gods show up but by now the Z-fighters have learned to take this stuff as normal.
