* Parodied in one of the short stories published on ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'': in the 23rd century they were shooting a western movie that featured such things as fire-breathing coguars, Indians with [[DisintegratorRay disintegrator tomahawks]] terrified by robotic birds and mutant desperados... Because the producer, usually known for [[ShownTheirWork extreme realism]], [[CriticalResearchFailure accidentally documented himself with 20th century tabloids]].

* Happens in both the two main Italian western comic book character ''{{Zagor}}'' often met books, ''ComicBook/TexWiller'' and ''Zagor'' (both published by Bonelli)
** ''Zagor'' regularly features
vampires, werewolves, aliens, mad scientists and a number of other unusual creepy crawlies.crawlies. Quite fittingly, it shares the same universe with other fantasy-based Bonelli series, such as ''Martin Mystere'' (better known internationally for [[WesternAnimation/MartinMystery its animated adaptation]]), ''ComicBook/DylanDog'', and others, even if set much earlier in time.
** ''Tex Willer'' is usually more down to earth and tends to feature mostly typical stories, but from time to time has shown magic users (including the warlock Mefisto, Tex' most famous enemy, and Tex' ally El Morisco. Plus, the medicine man of the Navajo village where Tex lives has genuine magical abilities, [[OvershadowedByAwesome just not in the same league as the above two]]), LizardFolk, [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs dinosaurs]], ''aliens''... [[ScoobyDooHoax And very convincing scammers]], leading to Tex usually doubting of apparent magic until he can verify it with his own eyes. Also, [[MugglesDoItBetter it's shown that guns kill much faster and better than magic]], with the only exception being the Tibetan monk Padma (who once asked the "Voice of My Land" for permission to deal with Mefisto by making him drop dead but was refused).

The West is, if you think about it, a logical choice for this treatment. The frontier as a whole was traditionally viewed (and still is viewed, to some extent) as [[LiminalTime the meeting place of civilization and the unknown]]. The lawless setting also meant plenty of violent deaths and unfinished business, [[GhostlyGoals fuel for ghostly tales]]. The MagicalNativeAmerican cliché also tends to show up here, for obvious reasons.
