* ''ComicBook/{{Rahan}}'' is set in paleolithic times; although full of ArtisticLicensePaleontology with dinosaurs showing up regularly (up to a [[SerialNumbersFiledOff serial-numbers-filed-off]] Franchise/{{Godzilla}} once), it is devoid of any obvious fantasy elements -- in fact the title hero very often debunks any claim of magic in the setting. And then, an issue feature Rahan lost in a bizarre world that he thinks at first is the afterlife, with completely fantastic monsters and inexplicable forces. [[spoiler:Turns out this is all [[MushroomSamba a dream caused by hallucinogetic mushrooms]].]]

* ''NoMoreHeroes2'' flirts with this in the fight with Matt Helms, who's basically one giant slasher villain homage, and who's backstory is one of the few times the game and its predecessor deals with supernatural elements (his stage is even reached through an Akashic Point, another one of the rare supernatural elements.)

* Halfway through ''VisualNovel/MayoiNekoOverrun'', the viewer gets an entire episode about {{mecha}} and later about a simple game that was made so [[SeriousBusiness dramatic]] it goes on par with [[Manga/{{Saki}} a certain mahjong anime]].

* ''ComicStrip/MotherGooseAndGrimm'' can't make up its mind whether it's going to have continuity with its title characters, or be an absurd gag-per-day strip without recurring cast members la ''TheFarSide''. * Jim Davis intentionally did this around Halloween for a few ''{{Garfield}}'' strips in which Garfield seemingly wakes up alone in his home, but the house looks like it's been abandoned for years. Suddenly the strip is entirely creepy and not at all funny. The storyline ends with a bit of MindScrew, so it's left to the reader to decide whether this was AllJustADream, or if perhaps the rest of the comic is just the hallucination of an abandoned pet slowly starving to death in a condemned house.
