* Doug [=TenNapel's=] ''ComicBook/CreatureTech'' is about a scientist who gets an [[TwoBeingsOneBody alien symbiote permanently attached to his chest]], then he has to team up with a giant CIA-trained praying mantis and a troupe of rednecks in order to stop an undead MadScientist from turning cats into demons and using the [[PublicDomainArtifact Shroud of Turin]] to resurrect a [[SpaceWhale Giant Space Eel]] in order to [[ApocalypseHow destroy California]]. The good guys win because of a timely vision of ''[[IfJesusThenAliens Alien Jesus]]''.

* Comicbook/GhostRider has the various former Spirits of Vengeance punishing the wicked throughout the ages, from WWI ace pilot Ghost Flyer to a WWII tank crew to Ghost Rider Creator/ChuckNorris (well, a parody of ''Film/LoneWolfMcQuade'', who was played by Norris.) Also Penance Fist, the hard-drinking country music aficionado redneck Ghost Rider. And the Undead G-Man and Knuckles O'Shaugnessy, the Prohibition-era Riders who combine the Untouchables with the Goon. And Hell Driver and Devil Rig, the muscle car and semi truck driving pair chasing down corrupt vampire sherriffs in the 70s. [[CrazyAwesome Without exaggeration, the extended sequence that introduced them all is one of the coolest things you will ever see]]. Really, the typical BadassBiker [[LikeABadassOutOfHell from Hell]] we're so accustomed to seems like the least CrazyAwesome of the bunch.

* The American quasi-graphic-novel series ''Literature/TheAdventuresOfSamuraiCat'' (not to be confused with the ''SamuraiPizzaCats'' {{Anime}} series) not only parodied everything under the sun, it mixed and matched them: as a result, Tomokato ends up facing gangster Trolls [[GatlingGood armed with rotary cannons]], Darth Shatner, a division of S.S. Tyrannosaurs, Mongols armed with nuclear weapons, and the Stalinwolf. And that was ''Before'' going to Hell.

* The ''Comicbook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' were born from this; the concept was, take the 4 hottest things in comics at the time (Teen heroes, mutants, ninja, and funny animals) and mash them all together with an AffectionateParody of ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'' (the Foot Ninja are a parody of Daredevil's frequent foes, the Hand). And yes, ninja were hot back in the '80s. Ninja are ''always'' hot.
** The cartoons had robot ninjas that doubled as MechaMooks.
*** And Turtles in Time gave us these Robot Ninjas riding ''dinosaurs''.

* ''ScudTheDisposableAssassin'' is about a killer robot bought from a vending machine, that fights all kinds of completely bizarre enemies such as an army of Zombies that [[TheVirus can turn other people into zombies by biting them]], and Dinosaurs that can... turn other people into Dinosaurs by biting them. Said army being commanded by lightning-wielding voodoo-using Ben Franklin. And he is helped by cyborg Italian Mobsters. And that's in 1 issue...
