** Most of Creator/{{Nintendo}}'s franchises, and certainly their most successful ones, reside on the border of Fantastic and Surreal. The [[CivilizedAnimal clothes-wearing]] [[PettingZooPeople animals]] of ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'' and ''VideoGame/StarFox'', the [[StandardFantasySetting fantasy kingdoms]] of ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' and ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', the far-futures and alien worlds of ''Franchise/{{Metroid}} and ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}}'', and the odd characters of ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' make up the list of notables. Oh, and ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''.

** ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' and ''VideoGame/WarioLand'' have internal rules, else they wouldn't be playable, but these rules make no logical sense and the background is pretty surreal so they're borderline. The earliest games can also be considered surreal, but later games start to establish moderately consistent rules.

** ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' is borderline fantastic and surreal. There is no explanation why the apes and crocodiles can walk and talk or why they wear clothes.



** ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' has game rules and [[StandardFantasySetting a pretty typical fantasy background.]]

** ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', which blends realistic elements with magic ([[AppliedPhlebotinum and technology that might as well be]]).

* Many [[FantasticComedy Fantastic Comedies]] feature only one fantastic element, with the rest of the setting being fairly realistic.

* Most episodes of ''Series/TheXFiles'' land here, but some are simply Unusual and lots of others look Unusual, which is why AgentScully doesn't look completely foolish in the early seasons.

* 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.
