* Parodied in the Flash-animated series ''Stone Trek,'' which is an odd fusion of ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' and ''Franchise/StarTrek''. Their stoneship is made of rock and wood, and their reactor core is a portable volcano.

* In Creator/MikhailAkhmanov's ''Literature/ArrivalsFromTheDark'' books, the [[SpaceElves Lo'ona Aeo]] are masters of miniaturization, capable of building complex and highly advanced devices and shaping them as an ordinary trinket, such as a glass figurine or a necklace. They also build fail-safes into all their tech to prevent it from being reverse-engineered and/or misused.

* Earthworks, or land art is essentially a form of this concept in an art movement, using modern machinery and other technology to sculpt giant sculptures into the land that not only look primitive but are meant to be temporary and naturally erode away.
* There's almost too many architecture movements to list, art deco for example is defined by it's homage to ancient styles yet fully embraces the use of machine-age technology to achieve this, resulting in the Empire State Building resembling a ziggurat, and the Chrysler Building having gargoyles.

** "The Q and the Grey" The weapons used by the Q look like civil war era firearms but are in fact so powerful that the kickback alone can destroy entire star systems in neighboring dimensions
*** The weapons only appear like Civil War Era firearms because the Q Continuum can only be perceived by humanoids in an allegorical or metaphorical sense; it cannot be perceived directly. The weapons look like civil war weapons because Q has chosen to present the situation of the dissolution of the Continuum as 'like the civil war'. He could have chosen a different analogy.

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'': Downplayed example with the Nopon technology. They appear on the outset to be comparatively primitive, living in thatched huts made of sticks and leaves, and relying on beasts of burden rather than any kind of engine. On the other hand, they carry around strange lollipop-looking gadgets which are apparently multipurpose communicators that can even interface with the humans' without issue, the weaponry they design is at least on par with human and other alien weaponry, and they never show any surprise or confusion towards advanced technology, seeming to understand it just fine. Contrast the Prone, who actually are primitive hunter-gatherers, and their utter incomprehension of the technology around them.

* One of the example {{NPC}}s in ''TabletopGameGeniusTheTransgression'' is a [[MadScientist genius]] from an alternative timeline where metallurgy never appeared. As a result, all her [[MagicPoweredPseudoscience wonders]] have a stone age aesthetic. Players can also create characters like this, since the rules pretty much state that they can use any style they want.
