* PerryRhodan is running for over 50 years now and did start with TheSpaceRace and then features things like AncientAstronauts, SufficientlyAdvancedAlien, AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence, TheBattlestar, CosmicChessGame, LensmanArmsRace, OrderVersusChaos, and and ... and we have not nearly covered everything in the first one hundred books.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' could be called either an post-apocalypse kitchen sink or a sink that focuses on sci-fi elements popular in the fifties. You've got radiation-warped mutants, immortal zombies that gradually turn feral as their mind breaks down, robots ranging from Robby of ''ForbiddenPlanet'' to ''Terminator''-esque synths, one or two LittleGreenMen, drugs that bestow psychic powers, disembodied living brains, and even a few people who bring justice to the wasteland by dressing up as ancient superheroes.

* ''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, the Imperium fields big TableTop/BattleTech-style mechs, the Imperial Guard are essentially Franchise/StarWars' stormtroopers (which are even referenced by name!) with several different flavors, ranging from WW1 trench warfare (the Death Korps of Krieg) to Vietnam-style survivalists (Catachans), Tyranids are books are about BugWar, Tau are {{animesque}} mecha and firepower and TheFederation, Eldar are ClarksThirdLaw SufficientlyAdvancedAliens that lean heavily towards {{ninja}}-style weapons (everything they fire are shurikens), rely on psychic powers, and take the traditional Japanese leaning, spaceship battles feel like they come out of the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' universe, Necrons are Franchise/{{Terminator}} and so on. If anybody want to write about or parody a certain type of science fiction, then they can.

A Sci-Fi Kitchen Sink is for all intents and purposes the playground of Science Fiction Tropes and everything associated with them. Have an ArtificialIntelligence construct able to run the CoolStarshiFTLp? It makes you coffee in the morning. HumongousMecha? You walked by several on the way to work. FasterThanLightTravel? [[CasualInterstellarTravel Totally mastered to the point where even Joe Penniless can get a ride to the stars.]] [[BeamSpam Laser and particle beams as weapons?]] Everybody and their dog has one. The list of possible areas seems to be endless.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' is a kitchen sink of MilitaryScienceFiction, SpaceOpera and HighFantasy tropes. Thousands of different races, ranging from [[OurVampiresAreDifferent several vampires]], {{psychic vampire}}s, [[RaptorAttack space velociraptors]], insect {{hive mind}}s, {{Energy Being}}s that might as well be ghosts, and three different [[ZombieApocalypse zombie types]]. Everything from massive ship-to-ship battles, to space fighters, to {{Humongous Mecha}}. Hacking (called slicing) is on, AI and robots galore, there's time travel (albeit by accident), FTL, and so on.

* ''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.
