* The TV-Movie series, ''Film/TheLibrarian'' completely runs on this, especially since it's the Librarian's job to find and store all the world's legendary and mystical items in a hidden underground room in the Metropolitan Public Library so that they're be safe and won't be used for evil purposes. The room literally has everything: Pandora's Box, The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg, H.G. Wells' time machine, Excalibur, etc.

* Ironically Middle Earth has shades of this as well. Tolkein primarily used Germanic, Celtic and Finnish mythology in LoTR and the Hobbit, but his other writings establish that Middle Earth is also home to vampires, werewolves, various fairies, mermaids and so on.
* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' features witches, wizards, warlocks, hags, ghosts, banshees, broomsticks, giant spiders, magic carpets, werewolves, vampires, various mythical creatures, giants and fairies.

* Literature/TheBible, along with its obvious belief in God, angels and demons, also makes reference to other mythical things. Unicorns, giants, sea monsters, behemoths, dragons, the grim reaper, and vague references to flying objects and mystical beings that can be construed as aliens and their space crafts. Although the unicorn, at least, was a mistranslation due to nobody remembering what an aurochs (''re'em'') was.

* ''Series/BigWolfOnCampus'' was a kid/teen show on the ABC Family Channel in the early 2000s that featured a high-schooler who was secretly a werewolf, who fought evil creatures along with his friends. They met everything you can think of: vampires (Including Corey Haim and Corey Feldman), aliens, werecats, witches, robots, Medusa, mummies, ghosts, Cerberus, ersatz versions of Frankenstein's monster and the Phantom of the Opera, demons, the Grim Reaper, and Santa Claus. This is because almost every other episode was inspired by an famous horror or sci-fi movie.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' in part plays this straight, and in part allows it to be through the AppliedPhlebotinum of the Devil Fruits. The Devil Fruits enable such things as Zombies, a Thunder God, living weapons, teleportation, Medusa, beastmen crosses with various species, living skeletons, and other mythical/fantastic concepts. Fantasy concepts in the series existing entirely independently of Devil Fruits include Fishmen, Merfolk, Sea Monsters, people from the moon (who have stunted wings), and Cyborgs. It's almost a NinjaPirateZombieRobot world, except for the Ninja.

* The ''Series/{{Arrowverse}}'' began with no fantasy or science fiction elements, just a guy who was unusually good at archery, only introducing a couple sci-fi gadgets (an earthquake machine and a cybernetic eye) near the end of the first season. But as the franchise continued and added more and more spin-offs, the fantasy/sci-fi elements began to build up. Demons, aliens, shrink rays, time machines, parallel universes, psychic powers, zombies, ghosts, angels, mystical totems, giant robots, talking gorillas . . . and sometimes (especially if it's a crossover) you might get most of those things all in one episode.

* ''VideoGame/{{Dominions}}'' draws on a wide range of mythologies for its different colorful nations, ranging from the well-known (Arcoscephale is Greece) to the obscure (Hinnom, Ashdod, and Gath are descended from the Nephilim of Jewish apochrypha). [[{{Heaven}} The Celestial Sphere]] (unseen but the source of many summons) ''alone'' contains a mixture of Hindu deities, Zoroastrian yazatas, and Judeo-Christian angels.

* There's the obscure {{Toku}} show ''Warrior of Love: Rainbowman'' from the 70's, which unlike the the more well-known examples detailed above, which were usually fairly focused in any given show, threw in pretty much everything the writers could think of. The hero gains a slew of elemental powers from a yogi, and uses them to fight an evil organization that employs commandos, assassins, wizards, magic-spawned monsters and cyborgs.
