* ''WesternAnimation/MrHublot'': Everything is mechanical—Mr. Hublot, the dog, the flies that the dog tries to catch, Mr. Hublot's flowers. The robot people fly to work via propellers in their heads. Yet the cars and the architecture have a 1950s flavor.

* ''Series/{{Caprica}}'' (2010): The SyFy channel's ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' {{spinoff}} is a mix of dieselpunk and {{cyberpunk}}. The in-story virtual game "New Cap City", which plays an important role in the series is pure Diesel Punk of the Noir variety.

** ''[[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. Notable for probably the first application of Relativity Theory in science fiction, use of AncientAstronauts trope, and Atlantis myth.
*** [[spoiler:Romance turns out to be not so interspecies, after all, as the Martians are refugees from {{Atlantis}}]].

* The retro-cult Taerkastens from ''Videogames/UrbanAssault'', are a 26th century version of this. Since the Taerkastens eschew electronics and related tech, they use propeller powered war planes and giant zeppelins when the other factions are using more standard futuristic units. But what they lack in the electronics department, they more than make up for by being on the leading edge of engineering and material design. The Taerkastens have the most heavily armored units in the game.
