* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': Everything that exists in the Sci Fi Writer's Handbook exists here plus a heaping helping of RuleOfFunny and ItRunsOnNonsensoleum. If it hasn't found some way of being incorporated well it likely will be.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': Everything that exists in the Sci Fi Writer's Handbook exists here plus a heaping helping of RuleOfFunny and ItRunsOnNonsensoleum. If WordOfGod says in the DVDCommentary that they realized just how far down this rabbit hole they'd gone when they agonized over whether it hasn't found some way of being incorporated well it likely will be.was okay to feature [[FantasyKitchenSink a wizard]] alongside everything else, they did, and nobody in the audience blinked.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' - sometimes it is like each army is there to be a representative of a different sort of science fiction. Your SpaceMarines are your, unsurprisingly, post-[[Creator/RobertAHeinlein Heinleinian]] SpaceMarines, Tyranids are books are about BugWar, Tau are {{aminesque}} mecha and firepower and TheFederation, Eldar are ClarksThirdLaw SufficientlyAdvancedAliens, spaceship battles feel like they come out of the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' universe, Necrons are TheTerminator and so on. If anybody want to write about or parody a certain type of science fiction, then they can.

* The ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series including its ExpandedUniverse. It has HumongousMecha, FasterThanLightTravel, ArtificialIntelligence, SpaceMarines, {{Precursors}}, etc. While the weirder aspects of SciFi like PsychicPowers or various {{Negative Space Wedgie}}s haven't show up in the games (although the [[TheVirus Flood]] HiveMind, Slipspace anomalies, and the [[spoiler:Ur-Didact's]] [[MagicFromTechnology gravity control powers]] come close), ''Literature/TheForerunnerSaga'' dips into that territory [[spoiler:by going the CosmicHorrorStory route, complete with EldritchStarships, GeniusLoci, and a SentientCosmicForce which allows technology to be made of ''thought'']].

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': there are three sorts of episodes. One type is the Doctor going back in time to some famous historical situation and finding aliens mucking about, another is the Doctor arriving in the present day and finding aliens mucking about, and the third, the type that makes the show a Sci-Fi Kitchen Sink, is the sort where the Doctor takes his companion to the future to basically show off a particular sort of sci fi idea. After 30+ years on the air, that's a lot of sci fi ideas.
