[[folder: Podcasts]] * The town of ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale''. Hooded figures who lurk in the dog park, spontaneous chronal wormholes, angels no one is allowed to acknowledge, a mind controlling cloud that glows and drops dead animals, bloodstone circles, the Brownstone Spire, a shape no one speaks about or acknowledges, deadly wheat and wheat byproducts, floating cats, Vague Yet Menacing Government Agents, [[EldritchAbomination librarians]], and more all can be found within its borders. Of course, finding them can be difficult given that many of these anomalies are either covered up, denied, or viewed as normal. [[/folder]]

* ''ScottPilgrim'' is a perfect example of this trope at its finest. With little more than a HandWave describing the series as a [[WidgetSeries Wicket]], the series casually includes epic battle scenes, mystical powers, save points, and ninjas. A good example of how the series treats fantastical elements is that finding out someone is psychic is generally no more surprising than finding out that they're vegan[[note]]In the series, there's actually some overlap, as a vegan diet gives you psychic powers.[[/note]]; it's unusual, but in no way fantastic.

* ''TheSimpsons'' initially confined most paranormal weirdness to the Halloween episodes, but they eventually bled over into the regular episodes as well, resulting in a Springfield that's seen alien visitations, multiple acts of divine intervention (including a premature Rapture), Vishnu living in the center of the Earth, Colonel Sanders and Spongebob Squarepants as divine entities, Bart having psychic powers, [=TVs=] that display plot-convienient commercials even though they're not plugged in, leprechauns, expies of the Thing and the Incredible Hulk, Chinese dragons, an island modeled after ''ThePrisoner'', the Dalai Lama having the power to fly, supernatural vision quests induced by eating too-spicy chili, and [[GreatGazoo a little green man named Ozmodiar who only Homer can see or hear]]. ** And StanLee, who may or may not have once transformed himself into TheIncredibleHulk.
