* In ''Film/GriffTheInvisible, most of the fantastical things that occur seem to be the product of Griff and Melody's wild imaginations, but several things seem ambiguous, like Melody actually being invisible to Griff at one point, or Melody phasing through a solid door with Griff witnessing.

** ''[[PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice Spirit of Justice]]'' introduces the Kingdom of Khura'in, an entire country based around spirit channeling to the point where court trails were mainly determined by divination seances and the royal family is expected to have these powers.

* UserFriendly starts out in a pretty normal world and focuses on the techs at an Internet Service Provider. Mostly the humor is geek-based and requires a healthy understanding of the computer world. Also there are creatures created from the dust molecules inside a computer, another creature created from spilled coffee and rotting food, the ability to make a coffee out of "distilled usenet bitterness", and the Great Old Ones from Lovecraft (usually just Cthulhu and Hastur) actually exist.

* ''Literature/DanceoftheButterfly'' plays with this trope, spending the majority of its telling coming off more as a crime thriller or contemporary fiction with ''something else going on'', but it eventually shows its more magical colors. Despite this, the world at large is still hidden on the other side of TheMasquerade.
