**''TabletopGame/{{Starfinder}}'' is a {{spinoff}} dedicated to science fantasy. Taking thousands of years after ''Pathfinder'', the native races of Golarion now live on the Absalom space station after their home planet mysteriously disappeared over three hundred years ago (with blanks in the memory of those who once lived on Golarion about how it disappeared). Advanced technology like energy weapons and spaceships have become common place. Wizardry has been replaced by the discipline of Technocracy, using the correlations between magic and technology to create something more powerful than either on their own.

* The Leijiverse has this in spades. ''SpaceBattleshipYamato'' often includes divine intervention in the form of goddesses such as Trelaina, Shalbart, and Aquarius as well as [[spoiler: Queen Starsha after her death]]. ''CaptainHarlock'' encounters everything from AncientAstronauts, [[EldritchAbomination eldritch abominations]], and TheRingOfTheNibelung. GalaxyExpress999 features a spaceship implausibly designed after an old fashioned steam locomotive. And then there is ''Queen Millenia'' whose series and movie have the honor of being scored by NewAge Space Music composer Kitaro.

*''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' is more focused on the sci-fi elements like aliens and interdimensional travel, but is also set in a world where the Devil, vampires and serial killers residing in dreams exist. Some other dimensions, like the one depicted in "Meseeks and Destroy," are fantasy worlds within a generally science-fiction influence multiverse.

* ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'' takes place in Crosswind Hold, where champions fight with either magic, technology, or {{Magitek}} and have the appearances to match. However, as the game goes through open beta, it has been downplaying the sci-fi aspect and emphasizing the fantasy, with more fantasy champions introduced and some of the older champions being redesigned with a less sci-fi look.

While there was a more even mix in closed beta, the game goes through sci-fi aspects have been downplayed in open beta, it has been downplaying the sci-fi aspect and emphasizing the fantasy, with more fantasy champions introduced being added and redesigning some of the older champions being redesigned with a to look less sci-fi, such as Ruckus' mech going from a cartoonish, Mechwarrior-esque steel fighter to a wood-and-metal steam-powered lifter. This aversion to sci-fi look.seems to have been done to make ''Paladins'' stand out from other [[HeroShooter Hero Shooters]], such as the sci-fi heavy ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' and SpaceOpera ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}''.

* While ''Podcast/TheAdventureZone'' starts out as full D&D HighFantasy, later arcs shift more towards this. It's a story about magic, [[ArtifactOfDoom Artifacts of Doom]], wizards, castles, and dwarves wielding giant hammers - while at the same time containing elevators, colonies on the moon, robots, aliens, interdimensional space travel, and [[AnachronismStew Costco]].

* The final act of ''[[VideoGame/{{Oddworld}} Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee]]'' involves raiding an EternalEngine death factory run by [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Corrupt Corporate Executives]] full of machine-gun toting guards, electric defense systems, and floating magnetic mines...while wielding the power of Shrykull the lightning god. The good ending's cutscene even involves [[spoiler: shamans using their combined spiritual power to bring divine wrath on the head of the Big Bad.]]

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' has shades of this in that a few games use technology beyond what one could expect from a fantasy setting, from the trains of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks Spirit Tracks]]'' to the Ancient Robots of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]''. In addition, TimeTravel and related tropes are a recurring element within the franchise.
