* In ''Comicbook/WonderWoman,'' Paradise Island is an interesting case. In [[CrisisOnInfiniteEarths Pre-Crisis days,]] despite a [[SufficientlyAdvancedBambooTechnology love of ancient Greek aesthetics,]] the Amazons had both magic ''and'' advanced technology -- for instance, they built the [[CoolPlane Invisible Jet.]] Since they had a magic scrying device that let them observe developments on the outside world at will, and they were a scholarly culture with nothing but time on their hands to invent things, [[JustifiedTrope this actually makes perfect sense.]] However, Post-Crisis, this was [[ViewersAreMorons deemed confusing,]] and the Amazons were cast solidly back into the Bronze Age.

* ''Franchise/{{Neopets}}'': The world of Neopia is based in a [[http://www.neopets.com/ntimes/index.phtml?section=editorial&issue=527 "pre-industrial period"]], where this trope is dependent on region. There's sticks and stones in [[OneMillionBC Tyrannia]], the various {{Fantasy Counterpart Culture}}s have the tech level you'd expect, Moltara is SteamPunk, while Neopia Central is closest to real life but has nothing like computers, cars, or any sort of electronic technology. And orbiting the planet, there's the Virtupets Space Station and moon colony on Kreludor, although they were created by an scientist from outer space.

* MarvelComics is guilty of this as well. [[IronMan Stark Industries]] have technology that really should have revolutionized the world by now, SHIELD have jetpacks and spaceships (technically, SWORD has the spaceships, but whatever), [[Comicbook/XMen Charles Xavier]] has a global surveillance system (mutant only), Henry Pym has his shrinking particles, and of course, ReedRichardsIsUseless.

* In ''WebOriginal/TheSalvationWar'', the scale of the conflict is so high at first that [[BreakOutTheMuseumPiece museum aircraft as well as even tanks]] are brought back to service, meaning that modern planes as F-22 fight alongside [[TheEighties 80s]] F-16 or F-18, [[TheSixties 60s]] F-4 Phantoms, as well as [[WorldWarII WWII]]-vintage ones as B-25s.

** Oracle (the former Batgirl crippled by the Joker and current organizer of the ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey) plays with this. In theory, she could have the use of her legs back instantly with the tech that the JLA and Batman have available. She refuses to use it, however, until it is available to everyone.
