* ''{{Literature/Vampirocracy}}'' not only has vampires who've taken over the world and werewolves as high-ranking police officers, but Wiccan healers, mentions of demons, and the debunked possibility of the main character being a rakshasa.

* The sheer number of {{Shout Out}}s, crossovers, {{Inter Continuity Crossover}}s, and esoteric references in ''Roleplay/ScaryNewsOutOfTokyo3'' qualifies it for this.

** The series lends itself to a number of {{crossover}}s. The ''Infestation'' arc starts with a new type of zombie with a HiveMind, capable of infecting any living or mechanical being, which infects one of the CVO vampires and uses her to open portals to four other realities. Conveniently, these realities turn out to be those with which we are familiar: ''Franchise/StarTrek'', ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', and ''Franchise/GIJoe''. In each reality, our favorite characters have to fight off zombie infections, which take different forms in each world. So if you've ever asked yourself, WhatIf Kirk found himself on a planet full of zombies, or what if you had a zombie infection spread to giant robots requiring Optimus Prime to ally with Megatron, then this series is for you.

* ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina'' isn't a straight example, being a NewOldWest [[XMeetsY slash]] {{Wuxia}} fantasy flick, but it points out the reason that few martial arts films have consistent cosmologies;
-->'''Egg Shen''': Of course the Chinese mix everything up. Look at what we have to work with. There's Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoist alchemy and sorcery. We take what we want and leave the rest. Just like your salad bar.

** Really, after about 50 {{Sourcebook}}s, it's probably easier to list what ''isn't'' featured in ''Rifts''.

* The monsters of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' all fit an urban myth feeling, until they started incorporating all kinds of mythology, no matter how much of a square-peg-in-a-round-hole it was. There are ghosts, demons, angels, gods, zombies, fairies, vampires, werewolves, witches, wendigo, banshees, genies, extra-dimensional monsters, possessed trucks, a Frankenstein-style Mad Scientist who is effectively immortal through the theft of new organs, the actual Frankenstein family, Hansel and Gretal, the Land of Oz, and many more. In "Hammer of the Gods", various pantheons from around the world sent representatives in a meeting to discuss ways to stop the Judeo-Christian apocalypse. Attendees included Odin, Mercury, Kali, Baldur, and Ganesh, to name a few. So far no aliens, though. This was {{lampshade|Hanging}}d a bit when one of the brothers said that everyone knew there was no such thing as Bigfoot. Bobby Singer can usually find info on new monsters, after the writers let up on the use of John Winchester's diary. At some point, Team Winchester realized they were dealing with monsters that were entirely unprecedented.

* The universe of ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' includes all manner of beings from the undead, corporeal souls to Chinese gods of wind and thunder. Expect a few humans to drop by as well to keep things interesting...

->''This was thousands of years ago, remember. Humankind and animalkind were closer then--our years in the Garden together were not so long ago. And our kind, the lycanthropes, were the bridge between the two...It saddens me that the tribes in this country do not tell the old tales to one another. If we gathered to tell stories and drink more, there would not be so much fighting, yes?''
