** The SpinOff MagicKaito which is canonically in the same world actually does have magic. Both real and fake meaning that while Conan doesn't cover it alone the world as a whole does.

* A vast majority if adult fiction with LGB leads is automatically labeled {{Queer Romance}} as its genre, no matter what other elements are in play. Whether romance gets a majority focus of the plot or not, if a queer lead has a same-sex love interest, that is now the genre. This leads to a lot of adult M/M and F/F fiction having a mix of genres under the same label and crossing territory multiple times.

* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' is a complex, metaphorical coming of age story seen through the lens of Buddhism, Gnosticism, and Jungian philosophy. It also uses deconstructionist theory to tackle issues such as gender roles, the incest taboo, and binary principle. It also a complex look at the dark side of tropes and imagery associated with European fairy tales, such as the prince, the princess, and the wicked witch. It also is a surrealist dramedy observing the complicated interpersonal relationships between the students. It also is about lesbians. But TV Tropes likes to say it's a {{Shojo}}, and back away slowly. Pretty impressive for a TV series that states "From the Director of ''Anime/SailorMoon!''" on its American DVD release.

*** In 1991, DarkSun did a dying DeathWorld drained of life by magic, forsaken by the gods, and made it such a CrapSackWorld, the halflings went cannibal and will eat you.

* Music/OingoBoingo: Most pop music historians classify them as "new wave" or "ska", but then there are other critics who claim that they invented pop-punk. But they were heavily influenced by traditional African and Indonesian music, jazz, and classical (and country to a lesser extent). ''But'' some of their songs are so solo-driven ("Dead Man's Party," anyone?) that they would fit comfortably on most classic rock stations. Frontman DannyElfman even said, when asked to sum up his band's ethos: "I wanted to piss everybody off!"

* ''Film/LocalHero'' is a constant mixture of comedy/satire and drama... with unexplained mildly fantastical elements.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', as a whole. It has magical epic fantasy, cyber-city sci-fi, plenty of action (both regarding the usage of special powers, or plain hand-to-hand combat), a CosmicHorrorStory or two, war tales, crime and mystery, western-ish DesertPunk, some mild philosophizing, tells moral fables, and showcases various kinds of humor (sarcastic and dry verbal jokes, or visual {{Slapstick}}). Comes in the form of plastic toys, comic books and novels, 2D and 3D animations and DirectToVideo movies, magazines (at least in Europe), free-to-read online stories, even audio podcasts, and its music ranges from rock and techno mixes of varying hardness to orchestral choirs, tribal drums and hums and almost rural-sounding chimes. The toys also blended traditional ''Franchise/{{LEGO}}'' bricks and standard ''Technic'' pieces with the unique ''Bionicle'' parts. The early Tarakava models, for instance, had a midsection built up purely by classic, studded bricks. Since the theme was still a member of the ''Technic'' umbrella-title then, [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness some of these early Rahi sets looked more like mechanical playthings than animals]]. Then, there were the playsets, "normal" LEGO building sets that came with their own Minifugures, but often had a regular ''Bionicle'' figure thrown into the mix for good measure. Blending the vastly different building techniques has, in fact, become a standard practice for LEGO since then, and not-too-overspecialized pieces tend to creep over from one theme of sets into another.

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' really likes to [[GenreShift hop from one genre to another]] with every arc, going from globe-trotting adventure story to detective story, to gangster story, to prison story, to racing story. Even the fight scenes involving Stands often get more cerebral than your typical action scenes, and feel more like mysteries than straight up fights.

* Music/{{Hacktivist}} is known for being very hard to pin down. They're possibly the only band that can fall under separate genres such as [[HipHop Grime]], RapMetal, {{Djent}}, and NuMetal all at once. They also avoid the [[BaseBreaker divisive]] or outright [[TheScrappy hated]] status that's often assigned to bands of the latter three genres, due to the instrumental prowess, the complex rap delivery that completely averts PissTakeRap and doesn't feel out of place at all (helped by the fact that they maintain their British accents), and the variety of mature lyrical themes relating to politics, conspiracy theories, corruption, and anarchy.
