** Soolin, TheGunslinger who joins the cast in Season D, has a BackStory involving a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against the HiredGuns of a mining company who murdered her parents in a ruthless land grab. In the final episode she returns to her planet which has become a haven of {{Bounty Hunter}}s who are being used to restore order now the Federation has what it wants. The episode features SlowMotion deaths like in ''Film/TheWildBunch'' and a BolivianArmyEnding as per ''Film/ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid''.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. Creator/ChrisBoucher was a fan of TheWestern, so he'd put {{Shout Outs}} and Western themes in his scripts.

** In "Death Watch" there's a QuickDraw duel with anachronistic revolvers between the cocky YoungGun and TheGunslinger, in an EvilPlan by Servalan to [[RobberBaron add more territory to her empire.]]

* ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' lifts a fare bit of the western genre, including character archetype and setting (and a soundtrack with a decent use of harmonica), but is clearly futuristic in setting. Also, it includes the cowboy fashioned "Rider" trainer class.

* ''Film/StarWars'' dabbles in this. Han Solo, for example, is a sort of Old West gunslinger, and the cantina in Mos Eisley is a western bar, complete with random brawling. Boba Fett walks with a sound resembling the jingling of cowboy spurs, too. Tatooine is pretty much the Wild West of Star Wars. Mos Espa spaceport is like a typical old western town with little law enforcement, [[TheSavageIndian savage]] [[SpaceJews natives]] wanting their land, farms, shady saloons, smugglers, all set on an endlessly sprawling desert. The spinoff film starring Han Solo is even being billed as a space western by WordOfGod.

** ''[[Film/{{Solo}} Solo: A Star Wars Story]]'' has been pitched as such. Sure enough, there's a shot of Han Solo ready to unsheathe his blaster gun againt several adversaries that looks like it was taken right out of a western and reinforces the gunslinger image Han had from the Original Trilogy. The movie's overall theme of him becoming a space outlaw also nicely fits in the trope.

* ''Podcast/TheThrillingAdventureHour'' gives us "Sparks Nevada: Marshal on Mars," an {{Expy}} of ''Franchise/TheLoneRanger'' complete with an alien Tonto in the form of Croach the Tracker and a rocket horse [[StealthPun named Mercury]]. Its spinoff, "Cactoid Jim, King of the Martian Frontier," plays off UsefulNotes/DavyCrockett.
