* Most of ''Creator/{{HPLovecraft}}'' 's [[{{EldritchAbomination}} Old Ones]] from the Franchise/CthulhuMythos use this: they live (or used to) in cyclopean cities, sometimes filled with columns, the inhabitants they are incomprehensible and so are their designs. However, it's hinted their technology is so advanced, humans can barely understand it.

* Some of the Lizardmen/Slann items and even buildings in TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} Fantasy Battle are this. They look like primitive Aztec-style stone carvings or monuments but are actually the relics of a super-technological galaxy-spanning race "the Old Ones" who were forced to abandon their colony after a catastrophic failure of their warp-gates (that flooded the Warhammer world with Chaos).
* A lot of Eldar and Necron technology in TabletopGame/Warhammer40K is of this nature. Eldar technology tends to resemble exquisitely carved bone, rendered in flowing organic shapes and studded with gemstones. High-ranking Eldar seers carry decorative spears, wear ribbed bone breastplates and cast bone runes from leather pouches. The "bone" in question is actually a highly advanced psycho-plastic substance called Wraithbone, and is shaped by the Eldar's formidable mental powers. The Dark Eldar use a similarly organic aesthetic, but with even weirder and much nastier devices at their disposal. Many of their most exotic weapons look like objects out of a fairy-tale, such as mirrors that shatter the individual reflected in them when they break, or caskets of malicious flesh-eating sprites.

* Creator/MarvelComics: The country of Wakanda has advanced technology, some of which outpaces the rest of the world, but publicly wielded tools are intentionally designed to match the traditional African style of Wakandian ancestors.

* The fantastic world of ''Series/{{Spellbinder}}'' has plenty of Medieval-looking high-tech equipment, one of which doubles as an ''ad-hoc cross-dimensional portal''. Many of them are LostTechnology.
