* Gloom mixes elements of death metal, sludge metal, black metal, groove metal, and technical death metal to create something that is very easy to pick up but defies all categorization. The band chalks it up to the fact that all of the members have played in a band that fell into at least one of those genres over the years, and the result was that they all brought a bunch of individual musical preferences to the table that they just played around with and allowed to gel together without letting any one of them take prominence.

* ''Literature/{{Hexwood}}'' starts out with separate plot strands seemingly located in: 1. an intergalactic sc-fi story, 2. a high fantasy novel, and 3. the sort of Cozy Suburban Mystery where a young girl sleuths around and has adventures. The plot strands rapidly collide, no one is who you (or even they) think they are, and some seriously brilliant MindWarp ensues as the plot barrels forward and things turn out simultaneously simpler and more complex than anyone guessed. Diana Wynne Jones is famous for bending and colliding genres in her novels, but this book in particular stands out.

* The now-famous Warcraft map/mod DefenseOfTheAncients was this, though it was actually [[OlderThanTheyThink preceded by]] ''Aeon of Strife'', a map for StarCraft. Its popularity [[TropeCodifier spawned a genre]] variously known as MultiplayerOnlineBattleArena games ([=MOBAs=]) or Action Real-Time Strategy games (ARTS). Many of these games are called DOTA-clones due to their similarity to the original ''Defense of the Ancients'' game, right down to copying the map out of it (and frequently, including many heroes which are extremely similar to the heroes present in the original game), but the genre has since expanded to include games such as Awesomenauts, which are certainly in the same genre and yet decidedly not clones.
