* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}''[='=]s Golarion is set up to facilitate this. The elves are actually of alien descent, and their ancient portals to other planets still exist. Some creatures such as nightgaunts can fly through space. Spells which allow this kind of travel are listed. The entire Distant Worlds source book exists to flesh out the rest of the solar system as well, which generally consists of a mix of earlier ideas of the solar system mixed with eldritch horror. 'Mercury' is a sun-baked world inhabited by robots with scattered habitable ice caverns, 'Venus' is a jungle with dinosaur riding amazons and is the homeworld of the elves, 'Mars' is a dying world covered in ancient ruins and is home to Expies of [[Literature/JohnCarterOfMars Green Martians]] and a colony of [[Literature/AtTheMountainsOfMadness Elder Things]], and so on.

The outer planets are even stranger, such as TidallyLockedPlanet Verces, Triaxus and its generations-long seasons, and NightmareFuel incarnate Aucturn. The RPG ''TabletopGame/{{Starfinder}}'' promotes the setting to a full Sci-Fi one, taking place centuries later.

Stories, nominally ScienceFiction, set on a alien world described in lush detail. The world can be Earth in the far distant future, or an alien planet, but it is reached by science-fictional means, not magic.

genre. Much of the action takes place on Sakaar, a chaotic LandfillBeyondTheStars ruled by a mad EvilOverlord, populated by countless alien species and located at a [[PortalCrossroadWorld nexus of wormholes]], all constantly [[SuperSargassoSea dumping the lost junk of the universe onto its surface]]. Director Creator/TaikaWaititi cited the cult '80s movie Film/FlashGordon1980 as a major influence on ''Ragnarok''.

* Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin's [[ScienceFiction SF]] novels tend to steer this way: ''Literature/TheLeftHandOfDarkness'', ''Rocannon's World'', etc. At least in the sense of having the planets be a pseudo-feudal setting -- she generally avoids the more magical elements.
