* While the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series is normally based in a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] version of a 1950s {{Zeerust}} RetroUniverse, ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' combines that style with old Westerns. Six-shooters and lever-action repeating rifles are far more prolific than in other games, one will find Sunset Sarsaparilla soft drinks in addition to the ubiquitous Nuka-Cola, the various towns and characters in the Mojave Wasteland bear plenty of Western tropes, the "Honest Hearts" expansion is set in the popular Western shooting location of Zion National Park, the "Dead Money" expansion is inspired by the film ''Film/TheTreasureOfTheSierraMadre'', and the eastward expansion of the New California Republic is heavily inspired by America's own westward expansion.

* ''Series/RedDwarf'': The episode "Gunmen of the Apocalypse" involves the characters entering a virtual Western town that serves as a metaphor for Kryten's struggles with computer virus. The episode even ends with Starbug [[RidingIntoTheSunset flying off into the sunset]].[[note]]Creator/PatrickStewart said that when he saw this episode on TV in England, it was so similar to "A Fistful of Datas" (see below), which he himself directed, that he almost called his lawyer to sue for plagiarism until he realized how funny it was. It's clear he meant it as a joke.[[/note]]
