* On a whole, the ''Franchise/StargateVerse'' belongs here. The various installments generally try to be realistic in how known things work and things that are not real are generally handled in a consistent manner and indeed can show up again and again in different contexts or scenarios. While there is {{FTL}}, PsychicPowers and sometimes RubberForeheadAliens or more often HumanAliens, the franchise generally explores who normal humans with typically military background work along with the strange things they find all the time. The various installments are also unusual in that many things the characters find turn out to be useful in other contexts and many episodes indeed deal with new developments based on artifacts or technologies found and decoded in earlier episodes, even earlier seasons in several cases. The only exception, it seems, are the titular Star Gates themselves, but those ''are'' very old devices scattered all over the place and the one Star Gate that typically behaves the most odd is the one on earth since it lacks a proper control device, instead a human-made computer is used and the software behind that changes for test purposes every so often, so that part is explained too.

* ''{{Gundam}}'' falls somewhere between this and "One Big Lie" depending on which incarnation of the franchise you're talking about. Some, like the original ''MobileSuitGundam'' and ''Gundam00'', use vaguely plausible ideas with huge deviances, like Minovsky physics and Newtypes, having their own rules. Then there's ''GGundam''...

* The 2003 reboot ''[[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Battlestar Galactica]]'' series seems to fall in this category. Cylon resurrection is never really explained, but spacecraft movement seems to follow RealLife physics and the FTL jump drive's limitations are applied more-or-less consistently.

* ''Creator/EEDocSmith'''s ''Literature/{{Lensman}}'' and ''Literature/SkylarkSeries'' arguably fit here better than ''Mohs/WorldOfPhlebotinum''. In both, the one big lie is faster than light travel, in the former by neutralising inertia, in the latter by the discovery that relativity is simply wrong and it's possible to go as fast as you like. Both also rely heavily on atomic power which is far from realistic, but being written well before the subject was at all understood that's entirely forgiveable. The same also applies to weaponry and various talk of rays and vibrations, which can largely be understood to be lasers before such a thing existed. The Lensman series also includes psychic powers which pushes things towards the softer end of the scale, but virtually everything in Skylark stems from just those two points.

[[AC: {{Film}}]] * MarvelCinematicUniverse tends to shift between this and World of Phebotinum.

** ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' tends to keep its TNG-inspired use of phlebotinum internally consistent if nothing else.

* Michael Reisman's ''Literature/SimonBloom'' series manipulated the very fabric of reality via scientific formulas and [[RealityWritingBook Books]] (which the [[InteractiveNarrator Narrator]] says deserve capital Bs due to their importance), but it handles their use of this fairly consistently.
