** Odd example, ConanTheBarbarian encounters a lost civilization in "Shadows of Xuthal" which has radium lighting and an elixir that both prologed life and healing just about any wound or injury that wasn't immediately fatal.

* ''RatchetAndClank'' tends to run up against some pretty weird science and occasionally throws "science" to the wind because it's ''fun'' to have a tiny, furry alien with a tinier RobotBuddy wielding {{BFG}}s against an army of {{Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot}}s.

* The "Captain Proton" adventures on ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' were an unabashed celebration of this trope (somehow fitting for the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' that tended to veer away the most from scientific plausibility).

* ''The Chinatown Death Cloud'' and its sequel ''The Astounding, the Amazing, and the Unknown'' by Paul Malmont pay homage to this era with a couple of yarns in which [[DocSavage Lester Dent]], [[Radio/TheShadow Walter Gibson]], Creator/RobertAHeinlein, Creator/IsaacAsimov, Creator/LRonHubbard and other pulp writers investigate (and sometimes create) StockUnsolvedMysteries -- despite their very real flaws in comparison to the perfect straight-jawed heroes they churn out for a living.
