** LEGO as a whole can be this if approached with sufficient enthusiasm and/or a lack of focus. You've just built a stagecoach, a UFO, an [[{{Franchise/StarWars}} X-wing]], a medieval castle, [[Film/HarryPotter Hagrid's hut]] and a police car? Time to get imaginative.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal'', full stop. It's a mashup of science-fiction, fantasy, and horror elements (which also makes it one of the very few animated horror movies), with heavy MindScrew elements to boot.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/ThePostmodernAdventuresOfKillTeamOne'' is difficult to classify. The books are mostly action adventure, but sometimes dip into SciFi/horror territory with strong elements of {{Satire}} and BlackComedy. Some characters have superpowers, and a werewolf features prominently in the series continuity (but there are no such things as vampires).

* ''Literature/ASymphonyOfEternity'' is a {{Space Opera}}/{{High Fantasy}}/{{Black Comedy}} meta-fictional delight. The books follow galactic war fought in a universe where magic instead of technology is used, it contains elements of military sf, {{Literature/Discworld}} like humour, {{Literature/Flashman}}esque protagonits with bits of [[ComicBook/TheSandman Sandman]]-like meta-fiction, [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecratian Horror]], historical fiction and use of many examples of FictionalDocument[=s=] for WorldBuilding and [[Creator/LeoTolstoy Tolstoy]] quality level of suffering and existentialism and nihilism, with a dash of optimism and hope for the future, all the while being a brutal {{Deconstruction}} and {{Reconstruction}} of itself all at the same time. And it is [[TropesAreNotBad GLORIOUS!]]

* ''Gun, with Occasional Music'' by Creator/JonathanLethem is a sci-fi police procedural that eschews most of the stereotypical elements of sci-fi, like aliens and computers. In fact, it probably is far closer to a pastiche of thirties noir with the silly elements (talking animals, super-intelligent alcoholic infants, free drugs for everyone, etc) justified after the fact. It could be telling that the author is also the editor for the Philip K. Dick and Raymond Chandler anthologies.

* Music/TheBeatles: at first their songs were typical love songs, but overtime, they did power ballads, hard rock, blues, psychedelic rock (and oh how much!), folk rock, and, uh, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWmvbxGpra4 whatever the hell this is.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Overall, ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' is a {{Shonen}} series with an AfterTheEnd ZombieApocalypse and [[MilitaryAndWarfareTropes Military-Warfare]] backdrop that's dark enough to nearly co-qualify as a {{Seinen}}, and as mentioned below, it quickly turns into a HumongousMecha story ''and'' a ConspiracyThriller manga with an additional heavy emphasis on the ongoing OntologicalMystery.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Space}}. They're generally classified as an indie / {{Britpop}} band, but have dabbled in HipHop (especially on ''Spiders''), PunkRock, EasyListening (especially on ''Tin Planet'' and ''Love You More Than Football''), {{Ska}}, {{Disco}}, SpaghettiWestern soundtrack-type music, DarkWave, SynthPop (especially on ''Give Me Your Future''), {{Techno}} and IndieRock. Their first three albums also included an instrumental dance track at the end, by keyboardist Franny Griffiths, that sounded nothing like anything else on the album.
