* WebVideo/ShinyObjectsVideos, according to WordOfGod, is "everyday scenes from a world utterly unbound by the rules of reality as we know them."
* ''DSBTInsaniT''. Ghosts who can turn you invisible, deities manifested as waterfalls using the form of a woman as a hollow shell, and MegaMicrobes made of water are just normal things to the cast.

* ''TabletopGame/OverTheEdge'' runs on this trope - the fictional island of Al Amarja is overrun with psychics, spies, alien infiltrators, cultists, artists, and other weirdness. (The game helpfully points out that if the players leave Al Amarja, you need to decide if the island is a nexus for weirdness, or if the whole world is this strange, and they just ''never noticed before''.)

* ''Webcomic/VoodooWalrus'' has a long history of [[http://voodoo-walrus.com/?p=43 baby powered dommcano based publishing houses]], [[http://voodoo-walrus.com/?p=699 sentient cacti instigating catsplosions]], and [[http://voodoo-walrus.com/?p=1729 daytrips to future dystopias]].

* Half of the time, ''Webcomic/UGMadness'' will have Ty and Dom playing ''Tabletopgame/MagicTheGathering'' and commenting on the game. The other half has head designer of the game Mark Rosewater portrayed as an imp who occasionaly takes orders from Satan and holds conversations with a red hairball named Thomas who only exist in his subconscious. Also, Kamahl, a [[Literature/OdysseyCycle fictional]] [[Literature/OnslaughtCycle character]] from the game, barges into their appartment from time to time. All this leaves the main characters totally unfazed.

* ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'': '''All''' the non-gray zones.



* In the [[Roleplay/WALLEForumRoleplay WALL-E Forum Roleplay]], the Chicago Colony is inhabited by humans, [[HumanPopsicle human popsicles]], sapient animals, robots, robots that should have been part of a mass scrap years ago, an ousted robot spy, a robot based off an extremely destructive enemy automaton, a [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} Turret]] rescued and given a robot body, a human robot sympathizer extremist, a human robot nonsympathizer, refugees from a nearly extinct race whose planet was blown up, refugees from a race of [[WesternAnimation/TitanAE alien kangeroos]] whose planet was consumed by a HordeOfAlienLocusts, refugees from a starship infested with {{Eldritch Abomination}}s and generally considered to be a BedlamHouse, a couple of immortal entities, and probably a few folks I haven't thought of. There's another faction located underground, they were until recently regularly attacked by a RealityWarper (who they finally killed), and some [[AncientConspiracy very old secrets]] have been discovered although there's probably some more. This is all considered to be completely normal.

* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' stars a six foot tall bluejay and a two foot tall raccoon, who work with an anthropomorphic lollipop, a yeti and...whatever Muscle Man is, for a walking, talking gumball machine in a world mostly populated by ordinary human beings, who don't consider this unusual. On their first day of work they tie at rock-paper-scissors a hundred times in a row, summoning an EldritchAbomination from a black hole, and then turn everything back to normal by breaking the tie. This is then shown to be par for the course.

* One of the earliest examples, and arguably an inspiration for this trope's original name: Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson's ''Literature/{{Illuminatus}}'' trilogy was deliberately written to be the World of Weirdness of conspiracy theories.

* The ''Webcomics/CarawayCrew'' are always encountering strange things in their little town, whether it's just odd people or otherwise.

* ''Fanfic/KasumisEpicQuest Kasumi's Epic Quest!!!]]''. The first chapter alone gives us a bag that literally holds everything, an evil clan of sentient books who kill people by shoving pictures of basilisks in their faces, [[VideoGame/MineCraft Creepers]], [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail the Killer Rabbit and the Holy Handgrenade]], and [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic carpenter ponies]]. The world isn't ''quite'' bizarre enough to be considered a WorldOfChaos, but it is still a very, very silly place.

* Only in a series like ''VideoGame/WarioWare'' can you find mad scientists, anthropomorphic animals, kung fu masters, ninjas, witches, aliens, improbably young retro gamers, high schoolers with a load of jobs, a family of disco dancers and Wario in a single place.

* ''GaiaOnline'' features this, to an extreme, mostly due to its origins as a roleplaying community. They add a new canon race every year (or in the case of 2008 ''five''), not including various item based and user created races. Santa Claus has been killed, revived, then ''turned into a cow''. There have been two [[ZombieApocalypse zombie invasions]] and an alien invasion. The first shopkeeper you meet is a former vampire with a talking cat. There are at least three Mega Corps, one owned by Mrs. Claus, and the other two owned by resident Megalomaniac Johnny K. Gambino [[spoiler:and his clone]]. The Dark Elves run TheMafia. There is a city filled with Robots. Someone literally just ''found'' orcs in a cave. Centaurs are bureaucratic environmentalists. There are Pirates, Ninjas, [[NoCommunitiesWereHarmed "Otami" Spirits]], and TheMenInBlack. Oh, and [[EverythingTryingToKillYou random objects have been coming alive and attacking people]]. Strangely, {{NPC}}s only consider the last one weird.
