* The ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' franchise in general has heavy sci-fi themes. The series has always been a big fan of robots, and machinery and has also dabbled in time travel, alternate dimensions, aliens, and artificial life-form creation but it also contains many supernatural elements like the Chaos Emeralds and ancient gods.

In fact, while Sonic usually starts out in GreenHillZone, the most common level types are [[MetropolisZone cities]] and [[TempleOfDoom ancient ruins]].

Subtrope of SpeculativeFiction, under which all {{Fantasy}} and ScienceFiction falls. Compare UrbanFantasy, GaslampFantasy, SpaceOpera, DungeonPunk, and PlanetaryRomance. Contrast HowUnscientific, where the mix of genres seems out of place. Compare and Contrast DoingInTheWizard and DoingInTheScientist, which retcons a fantasy element to a sci fi one and vice versa.

** A relatively obscure, but critically well-regarded, third-party book called the Second World Sourcebook was explicitly written to enable the standard "d20 System" (i.e. 3rd Edition ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'') and ''D20Modern'' to be used together, mixing and matching characters created under both sets of rules. It posits, among other things, an extensive network of portals between a D&D style StandardFantasySetting and our own world. Though that probably sounds more like UrbanFantasy, the results would more closely resemble this trope in practise.

* ''Manga/InitiaD'' throws in vehicle science such as technical informations and driving physics, as well as some fantasy ingredients such as BattleAura systems for the street racers.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''VideoGame/RidgeRacer'' games mix realistic vehicle physics and driving physics as well as fantasy symbolism. The later games in the series even have ''exaggerated driving physics which is no means a possible science'' as well as NitroBoost.

* ''Franchise/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' uses an interesting take on this trope. The [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender first series]] was very much set in a {{Fantasy}} world, with only a few SteamPunk aspects introduced towards the end. However, by the time of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' (70 years after ''Last Airbender'') technology has advanced considerably, with things like cars, airships, airplanes and even [[spoiler:HumongousMecha]] becoming more and more commonplace (especially by the time of Book 4). Essentially, ''Avatar'' shows what happens when a {{Fantasy}} setting breaks its MedievalStasis.

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', the setting is vaguely Polynesian at face value, everyone is a [[AmbiguousRobot mostly machine cyborg]], they all live inside a [[spoiler:giant robot]] made of AppliedPhlebotinum. They sport some pretty sweet tech, but the most common way for the [[{{Hobbits}} powerless Matoran]] to defend themselves are with [[MundaneMadeAwesome frisbees that can freeze, shrink, or teleport whatever they touch]], and the main heroes, Toa, [[ElementalPowers control the elements]] with no explanation other than "elemental energy"[[note]]although the web serials imply that they are accessing Mata Nui's interior controls[[/note]] and wear [[CoolMask magic masks]] that have an ever growing list of options.

* Much of NnediOkorafor's work falls into this category. ''Literature/TheShadowSpeaker'' and ''Literature/ZahrahTheWindseeker'' both are mixtures of sci-fi and fantasy, though ''Zahrah the Windseeker'' is more explicitly fantasy. Both take place in futuristic worlds that are very high tech (the former takes place in a future Earth and the latter takes place on another planet that is similar to Earth) that also have various people with magical powers.
