* The crossover fanfic ''FanFic/EventHorizonStormOfMagic'' has [[VillainProtagonist The Company™]] and the UN on the "tech side", and the hostile native factions like [[LordOfTheRings Mordor]] and [[WarhammerFantasy Chaos]] on the "magic side".

* Averted in {{Warhammer}}, where every technologically advanced faction (dwarves, Empire, Skaven) uses magic to a degree, since even the SteamPunk dwarves use rune magic (less powerful but more reliable than the Winds of Magic). The Empire is less advanced (though they do have gunpowder weapons including cannon) but use magic just the same. Only the MedievalStasis kingdom of Bretonnia plays it straight since their tech is limited to cavalry equipment and longbows to go with its magic, but that's due to their ruling class being staunchly against it (also they're secretly manipulated by Wood Elves, not exactly the most welcoming of technology).

* Phil Jimenez was working on a book called ''Otherworld'' for VertigoComics, where a group of friends are whisked away into a war between two worlds -- a traditional fantasy world and a post-singularity culture. It ended when he was slated to do illustrations for ''Infinite Crisis'', though.

* Used part of the time in the RPG world of ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}''; sometimes the Shamans and Hackers work together, sometimes they don't.

to:

* Used part of The NAN War in ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'', sparked by the time US government ruling that corporations could seize reservation land under eminent domain and interning protesters in "re-education camps" in the RPG world of ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}''; sometimes [[AlternateHistory 2000s]], and facilitated by [[TheMagicComesBack magic returning]] in 2011. Though in their case the Shamans dichotomy was more a matter of infrastructure than ideology, the fledgling Native American Nations didn't have many factories or supply lines, while the US Army didn't know what to do with magic yet. By the game setting (2050s-2070s) almost every faction uses a mix of magic and Hackers work together, sometimes they don't.technology.

* In ''[[Machinima/YogscastMinecraftSeries The Blackrock Chronicle]]'', LetsPlay/{{Rythian}} has took it upon himself to seek vengeance for LetsPlay/{{Sjin}} and LetsPlay/DuncanJones' destruction of the the old Tekkit world. Unfortunately, through his actions, he caused Duncan to place a nuke under Blackrock Stronghold in his ''LetsPlay/DuncansLab'' series. After [[spoiler: LetsPlay/ZoeyProasheck almost dies when Duncan's nuke explodes]], they have formed an uneasy truce, which thus far appears to be working out.

** Not to mention that when GREMLIN enters the picture after WWIII, we have one large anti-science faction, one large science faction, and one large pro-science magic faction, and other shenanigans at the same time.
* There is a scene in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' where a robot army is attacking the school, and the students are armed with magic wands and staves to defend against them. Cue two-page spread of wizards fighting robots. However, the creator of said robots is a wizard herself along with being a scientific genius, and some of the weapons the robots use might be {{Magitek}} in nature.
