* Musicals that aren't fantastical generally belong here. Some, like ''Film/{{Hairspray}}'' and ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'', are perfectly realistic except for the fact that people burst into song at random.

** ''[[VideoGame/SaintsRow1 Saints Row]]'' and ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2''



** ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' usually sticks closer to unrealistic, and is notable for averting several action series tropes (such as SteelEarDrums and BottomlessMagazines) but includes just enough sci-fi elements (such as robot imposters, clones, mind-control chips, and futuristic space stations) to sit here comfortably.

** ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is set in a mostly normal world, with the exception of the Gems. However, because the show focuses on a race of creatures that don't exist in real life, it qualifies as fantastic, though definitely leans closely towards unrealistic.

** ''Manga/YamadaKunAndTheSevenWitches'': The witch powers are an important part of the story, but they're a [[{{Masquerade}} hidden]] part of the daily life on an otherwise mundane high school, and the story generally relies on SliceOfLife humor and conflicts even though a lot of the characters use magic. Furthermore, magic only seems to exist on this specific high school - the rest of the world is completely normal.

Furthermore, magic only seems to exist on this specific high school - the rest of the world is completely normal. The college preparation arc as well as the epilogue are on the "unrealistic" end of the scale instead of "unusual" as they don't involve witch powers, but still has some over-the-top humor and a couple of cases of cartoon physics ([[CharlesAtlasSuperpower such as Yamada lifting a gigantic boulder effortlessly]])

** ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' is borderline surreal, but even the most bizarre episodes tend to have ''some'' sort of internal logic.

** ''Series/TheGoodPlace'' is in this category, unusually for a show set in the afterlife. There are rigid rules in place, and how the show expands and subverts them is central to the plot and humor.



The world has (almost) no rules or internal logic whatsoever. Anything can (and frequently does) happen, often with little or no explanation. Expect things to [[ItRunsOnNonsensoleum run on nonsensoleum]]. Anything set in the afterlife falls to this category.

A GagSeries will usually fall into this.

** ''OrionsArm'' borders unusual and fantastic. Everything in it is possible though, albeit just, within known physics.
