* ''Douglas Adams' StarshipTitanic'' is thoroughly suffused with Art Deco, from the design of the starliner itself to its robot staff. Better still, it actually uses Dieselpunk motifs such as pneumatic tubes.

** Taken up to eleven in the seventh entry, where the villains are a time-traveling army from the future . . . still driving the same WWII-inspired tanks, except now they're painted blue and shoot laser beams.

* Parodied in the ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' series, which (although ostensibly taking place TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture) are set in a bizarre version of WWII, where propeller-powered planes and zeppelins coexist with [[MilitaryMashupMachine Land Battleships]] (literally a Yamato-class battleship with tank treads bolted on), {{Zeerust}} aliens, and [[WaveMotionGun Wave Motion Guns]].

* Music/{{Therion}}'s music video for "Initials BB" features dirigible battleships over what appears to be London, with ranks of scantily [[PuttingOnTheReich Germanic-uniformed]] women marching (and inexplicably [[FanService flashing their breasts]]).

** ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aelita_%28novel%29 Aelita]]'', by the same author, about heroic MadScientist and Russian Civil War veteran flying to Mars, sparking a proletarian revolution there, and engaging in InterSpeciesRomance ([[spoiler:though it turns out to be not so interspecies, after all, as the Martians are refugees from Atlantis]]). Notable for probably the first application of Relativity Theory in science fiction, use of AncientAstronauts trope, and Atlantis myth.

* ''Animation/WarOfTheWorldsGoliath'' takes place in an alternate 1914 on the cusp of World War I, with walking tanks and giant heavily armed airships thanks to retroengineered alien technology.

UsefulNotes/WorldWarII is being waged (or UsefulNotes/WorldWarI in some instances), but one or both sides are introducing [[StupidJetpackHitler superweapons]], [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum alien technology]] and/or [[{{Ghostapo}} occult forces]] into the mix, often with one or more [[MadScientist Mad Scientists]] behind it all. For a less extreme variant, something like the real-life exploits of the nascent Special Air Service in collaboration with the Long Range Desert Group (briefly, LawrenceOfArabia upgraded with blast-incendiary explosives and "gunship jeeps"). (See WeirdHistoricalWar.)
