*C'hou is loaded with this in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', as the G'heddi'onians use both magic and technology, and the outworlders have brought in a huge variety of stuff.
**The four immediately note the wide variety of styles and materials used in clothing stores, and how unlikely it would be for everything to be produced locally. When George asks a salesperson where all the stuff comes from, the woman handwaves it by saying that “The gods lined up various suppliers.”
**Ringo notes that the civilians of the Guardians-run Central City are essentially peasants who sell heavy ordnance from what look like fruit stands and ox carts.
**The G'heddi'onians are divided into the urbanized “Urb Geddies” and the Luddite “Nat Geddies,” who eschew both technology and most magic. However, the Urb Geddies use both happily, though at least one (Lotisa) was very startled by John's [[TouchTelepathy touch-telepathy]] because she “grew up with tech.”

* The AfterTheEnd setting of ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'' has this. For starters, the five nations of the Known World have lost their infrastructure to different extents. Mechanical vehicles are still around, but have become very expensive to use and maintain compared to horse-drawn carriages, thus making their use mostly military. Those that ''do'' exist are however more advanced than in present times. An Icelandic genetics program intended to boost the country's immunity rate hints that they at the very least have sperm and ovum preservation, as well as artificial insemination equipment up and running. By contrast, a Swedish character, whose country is just getting around having public radio again and has a few trains, wasn't even sure Finland had electricity at all (they do, "but not very much" according to an actual Finn).

This trope has frequently been TruthInTelevision depending on the circumstances, with historical works involving [[WorldWarI World War I]] and other major events that were technological 'kitchen sink' like affairs (with cavalry charges co-existing with airplane bombing runs) one hundred percent qualifying. Beware: Many sci-fi settings that aren't [[MohsScaleOfSciFiHardness harder than diamond]] can become this ''constantly'' if you think about it too hard.

** In a later strip, Redcloak mentions that magical, lightning-powered trains actually do exist in the OOTS-verse (and complains that he's the one who has to make sure they run on time).

* The ''{{Discworld}}'', in the city of Ankh-Morpork as seen by the visiting Californians in crossover fic with ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', ''Fanfic/TheManyWorldsInterpretation''. It has a supercomputer (HEX) way in advance of anything on Earth but no electricity, TV, petrol engines... meanwhile visiting Discworlders in Pasadena/Los Angeles find technological sophistication - but no awareness of magic. The visiting Assassin realises how reliance on machinery to do the work has rendered the people largely less muscular and physically able than on her own world.

* Tech level in ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'' is pretty hard to nail down. On one hand, Darksiders have flintlocks and dynamite, while Daysiders seem to be more on spears-and-swords level of technology - yet there's something akin to a radio or DVD player visible behind Kenton in one panel.
