* 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?''

** Two of Green's other series (''Literature/{{Nightside}}'' and ''Literature/SecretHistories'') also use this trope, and blend all of the above sci-fi elements together with an even ''greater'' diversity of fantasy elements. Too put it into perspective: gods, aliens, vampires, angels, werewolves, demons, ghosts, witches, gargoyles, eldritch abominations (Including references to the actual Great Old Ones), Dracula, Frankenstein, Jekyll and Hyde, ghouls, and Doctor Who references are just the tip of the iceberg.

* ''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, aliens, ghosts, mummies, the devil, the grim reaper, and Santa Claus. This is because every episode was based on an old classic monster movie.
