Added DiffLines:

* 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]].
** 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.

* 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.

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.)
