* ''Manga/GugureKokkuriSan'' is about a human girl who lives with a fox, a dog, and a tanuki spirit and goes to a normal school with an alien who insists that he is human. The girl also happens to be a self-proclaimed doll and cup noodle addict whose house is filled with weird supernatural objects and has more common ground with supernatural spirits than other humans.

* Anonymous cartoonist [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_(Simpsons_artist) Chris (Simpsons artist)]] has built an entire career on drawing the most unabashedly nonsensical cartoons that the human mind can produce, all while commenting on them with [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} bizarre stream-of-consciousness asides to his audience]]. Everything about his work, from his [[StylisticSuck inept attempts at drawing human figures]] to his [[SpoofAesop clueless self-help advice]], contributes to its general surrealism. Case in point: he still insists on being credited as "Chris ([[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Simpsons]] artist)", and his [[https://www.facebook.com/TheSimpsonsArt/ official Facebook page]] is still called "Simpsons pictures that I gone and done"...even though he stopped drawing characters from ''The Simpsons'' around 2011.
* Surrealist painter Creator/ReneMagritte (he of "this is not a pipe" fame) is often considered the TropeMaker.

* ''Manga/BoboboboBobobo'' is the very essence of this trope: A man who can communicate with all body hair sets out on a quest to stop the bald overlord from "bald-ifying" everyone on the planet. Bo-bobo fights many bizarre enemies along the way, mostly by confusing the ever-loving hell out of them (and, in the process, the audience.)

The cast actually goes out of their way to make the guests (who are often [[EnforcedMethodActing under the impression that its just another talk show]]) as uncomfortable as possible, such as placing heaters under the seat (and positioning it strategically under a leaking pipe), not running the A/C in the building, going off on random, bizarre tangents with little to no provocation, and sometimes even pulling things on Eric and Hannibal that even ''they'' were not expecting.

* ''WesternAnimation/NeoYokio'': The show will frequently make off-beat jokes with weird comedic timing and the show treats the incredibly strange premise as realistically as possible. It's easy to compare it to more comedic versions of MagicalRealism.
