* ''LightNovel/ScrappedPrincess'' does this to the viewer, with a small hint that something might not be as it seems being at the beginning of the very first episode, and nothing more said about it until partway through the series. Everyone in the show is seen to be living in a catchall generic Middle Ages fantasy setting, and to the viewer, it looks like just another {{Slayers}}esque/RecordOfLodossWar type anime based in some nondescript magic world that is kind of like our world, but not. [[spoiler: However, the truth is that they're in the far future in "our" world, and their conquerors have regressed everyone back to the Middle Ages in order to prevent them from even wanting to mount a resistance. The "magic" seen in the series is actually MagicFromTechnology, based on the tech maintaining their "prison", which is actually a tiny piece of the world suspended in the sky.]] Then again, the very beginning of the show has a bit of AstronomicZoom that reveals the setting to be [[spoiler: Korea]].

* {{Parodied}} in ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}''. Spaceball One/Megamaid is blown up, and the head and arms fall on the Planet of the Apes, resembling the Statue of Liberty.

* {{Parodied}} in ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}''. Spaceball One/Megamaid is blown up, and the head and arms fall on the Planet of the Apes, resembling the Statue of Liberty. The implication, of course, is that maybe it wasn't really Earth all along after all.

* The Shattered Sea Trilogy (by Joe Abercrombie of [[Literature/TheFirstLaw The First Law fame) takes place in a Viking like society which is actually in the far future Baltic Sea after a nuclear war, where Finland appears to have sunk. The fist clues are the geography matching too well, the names of elf ruins being corrupted versions of present day cities, and a tribeswoman wearing a circuit board as an amulet.
