* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': Given that the show is about boys building impossibly advanced technology, this is a given. It has had evil scientists, spy organizations, aliens, TimeTravel, RidiculouslyHumanRobots, advanced nanotechnology, superheroes and villains (including from the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, which is a SFKS all its own), teleportation, holograms, supercomputers, AnotherDimension, and sentient AIs (good and bad), to name a few.

* ''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/{{Infinity}}'' is much the same - Cyberpunk tropes happily contained in [=PanOceania=]'s warring hypercorps and corporate troops alongside Space Knights, European troopers in armor heavily inspired by ''Manga/{{Appleseed}}'''s E-SWAT, and soldiers that are heavily based on the film version of Film/StarshipTroopers (down to the "Would you like to know more?), space Samurai, ninja, and sprawling animeque and East Asian sci-fi in Yu Jing, a {{Used Future}} in the Ariadnans (who are mostly military-fiction, unchanged 20th[=/=]21st century units wielding rifles that wouldn't be out of place in a modern setting) and the Nomads (who experiment with bioengineering, giving us Space {{Catgirl}}s and put the punk in cyberpunk with anarchist sci-fi tropes and punk-inspired designs, with futuristic Roller Derby gals as a unit), Literature/{{Dune}}-esque Haqqislam units who literally control the Spice flow, Franchise/{{Halo}}-esque Morats hired by an insane conglomerate of [=AI=]s, bio-tech, organic Tohaa - all watched by a TronLines-and-[[EverythingWillBeAnIpodInTheFuture Apple-esque]] faction, ALEPH, who attempt to bring order to the human factions. A nanoswarm devastated America, leaving the rest of it a Franchise/MadMax-esque apocalypse wasteland, while bozusoku fight cops on the neon-drenched streets of Yu Jing.

* 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 {{Eldritch Starship}}s, GeniusLoci, and a SentientCosmicForce which allows technology to be made of ''thought'']].

* ''TabletopGame/{{Trinity}}'' was launched as one of these as well. You want cyberpunk? America's corporate-owned and full of technopaths. You want wasteland? Paris and a huge chunk of the surrounding land got nuked. You want SpaceOpera? Mankind's made first contact and is currently involved in political dealings with at least three different species. You want PsychicPowers? What flavor do you want them in?

* ''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 infused with knights and religious fervor, 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 UsefulNotes/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.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'', by virtue of it having run from 1963 to 1989 and subsequently from 2005 onwards and ranges through the entirety of time and space. After 30+ years on-air, that's a lot of sci-fi ideas - you've got military fiction battling witches and ancient astral demons, mixed in with genocidal robots and sentient nanoswarms.
