* ''Manga/YowamushiPedal'' is filled with them. Naruko looks like he came from a standard battle shounen manga, while people like Midosuji look like the villains in a more physically involved story. They're in a cycling-themed Sports manga.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'':
** "The Sweaters" has Darwin and Gumball meet [[OpposingSportsTeam the bully antagonists from a typical sports movie]], who [[SelectiveObliviousness refuse to accept]] that the brothers are not trying to compete with them in any way (and also [[NonStandardCharacterDesign look terribly out of place]] with [[OutdatedOutfit stereotypical 80s clothing]] and ''Speed Racer''-esque character designs). However, ''nearly everyone else'' suddenly starts acting like they're in a sports movie as well, so [[OnlySaneMan Gumball and Darwin]] [[StrangerInAFamiliarLand are the ones who end up feeling like strangers]].
** "[[Recap/TheAmazingWorldOfGumballS4E4TheOthers The Others]]" is about a student at Elmore Junior High named Clare trying to live her life as if its an angsty teen drama. [[FailedAttemptAtDrama Her attempts at drama are always foiled]], if not by [[HostileShowTakeover Darwin and Gumball trying to make themselves the center of attention]], then by the omnipresent weirdness and silliness that she is oblivious to. She even insists that she does not "live in some amazing magic wonderland" which is exactly what [[WorldOfWeirdness Elmore]] ''is''.

* ''Manga/YandereKanojo'' has a few characters who would not be out of place in the ShoujoGenre. Shiratori, [[UnknownRival who tries so hard to be Manabu's rival]], is explicitly [[CaptainErsatz based on]] the rival character in ''Franchise/TokimekiMemorial 3'' and retains some of his genre tropes. Given that the general tone of the series is AffectionateParody of shounen romance stories, these contrasting genre elements are [[HilarityEnsues milked for all their comedic worth]].

* The Jovian Republic in ''TabletopGame/EclipsePhase'' are a traditional military sci-fi faction in an anarcho-transhumanist PostCyberpunk setting. They take this about as well as can be expected, to the point where they refuse to associate with the rest of the setting if at all possible because they believe everyone else is a soulless thing using the memories of a dead person.

* This is done in ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' episode "Execution", which mixed two of the series' most frequently-used genres: in it, an outlaw from a [[TheWestern Western]]-themed ''Twilight Zone'' episode is [[FishOutOfTemporalWater pulled into]] a ScienceFiction-themed ''Twilight Zone'' episode by a scientist with a time machine.

* Oogie-Boogie from ''Film/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas''. The other spooks are frightening and with a bit of a skewed morality code, but are ultimately good natured creatures that scare folks for fun. Enter Oogie-Boogie, the one spook who is genuinely malicious and evil-natured, who even the other spooks seem to dislike. According to a supplmentary material he's also this in a completely literal sense, being a refugee from a different bug-themed holiday that's no longer celebrated.
