* In the [[AlternateHistoryDotCom AlternateHistory.com]] timeline ''Literature/MaleRising'', the Kingdom of the Arabs uses its oil wealth to preserve traditional culture and heavily subsidize the traditional nomadic lifestyles, leading to Berber clans driving around in luxurious all-terrain vehicles that open into grand, portable pavilions.

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

* 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.
