* ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', while set in world that looks like Medieval-esque Europe (albeit less prudish and more agnostic one) wih dinosaurs, strongly implies that it's in fact the future, with "magic" being ClarkesThirdLaw-abiding tech and Paradise being a colony that regressed technologically. There are even nations such as Spaña, Irysh, Anglysh, Slavia etc.

***Not quite; is very clearly established in the show that the Alliance did colonize all the worlds in the known Verse and that the war started because those worlds wanted to be independent from the central (or federal) government. Fans may not want the association of their beloved characters to the Confederates, but this association is blatant and deliberate.

* * An episode of '''''Star Trek: Enterprise''''' involved the crew stumbling across an Old West town on another planet. Although it turned out that the inhabitants were the descendants of humans abducted as slave labour by aliens sometime in the 19th century. Though that didn't explain why they hadn't made any cultural, sartorial or scientific advances in the intervening 300 years, despite having alien technology to work with.

* Much of the third book of John Birminhaam's ''Dissapearance'' trilogy takes place in the western half of the United States whicg has once again become the Wild West only with trucker convoys instead of wagon trains and the cavalry riding Humvees and helicopters. Also no Native Americans since they died along with everyone else. Plenty of Indians from India though as imported workers.

* ''OutlawStar'' may fall more on the sci-fi side of things (with some Daoism and [[ClarksThirdLaw sufficiently advanced]] shenanigans thrown in) than the above examples, but the gun-slinging is plentiful, and there're enough bounty hunters and duels at [[RecycledInSpace binary sunset]] to give its narrative the Western vibe its title does.

* The setting of the ''IronGrip'' games is a [[PlayingWithATrope mostly]] [[MedievalEuropeanFantasy feudal]] SteamPunk LowFantasy world, but it's generally hard to pigeon-hole one or even two single historical eras it resembles the most. In broad terms, it has a blend of culture, architecture, tech and overall atmosphere that wouldn't look out of place in eras as varied as TheMiddleAges, TheRenaissance, the UsefulNotes/ThirtyYearsWar, the NapoleonicWars, VictorianBritain, TsaristRussia, UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne, UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo, [[GenteelInterbellumSetting the decades between them...]] Not only CultureChopSuey, but full-blown [[AnachronismStew Era Chop Suey]] [[RuleOfCool as well]]...

* Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy, which creates what is, overall, a very mid 70s to very early 80s atmosphere through it's choice of music tracks and it's aesthetic cues for sci-fi.

* ''CodeGeass'' has this, complete with knights in giant robots, an Emperor, princes, and castles. It also has a Feudal Future for the Chinese Federation, which takes up most of Asia.
** ''CodeGeass'' is AlternateHistory - society ''never'' advanced beyond a Feudal stage in this timeline, except in parts of Europe and elsewhere, and even then these were constantly outdone by the Brittanians. To be this trope they would have to have abandoned feudalism and imperialism at some point, but most of the world never did.
* ''{{Voltron}} / Anime/GoLion'' is a medieval fairy tale world InSpace.
* The ''{{Gundam}}'' works set later on in the Universal Century shows an Earth Sphere that's increasingly reminiscent of Japan's Sengoku period as European-style aristocracy makes a comeback. By ''Victory Gundam,'' the situation's reached the point where the Sides are independent nations in all but name, with the Earth Federation [[spoiler:seemingly]] inept to do anything about it.
