* Franchise/SuperMarioBros. features a short, slightly pudgy, Italian plumber with a noted ability for high-jumping and his equally skillful brother venturing through vast, often absurd, lands populated by phallic vermin, talking bipedal turtles, sentient fire-breathing flytraps, shy ghosts, mushroom capped midgets, tiny-rhinos, literally flying fish, velociraptors that are born with a saddle and almost everything in between while trying to rescue a cutesy, pink-clad princess from a giant turtle-oni-dinosaur-monster king and his equally weird eight children; while consuming mushrooms, flowers, leaves, herbs, plumes, stars and more recently acorns that somehow grant them super powers. It just doesn't get any weirder than that... Until you turn to the RPG series.
* The game Parasite Eve 2 has the GOLEM, which are human enhanced with cybernetics and advanced weaponry (from laser swords, toxin injectors to grenade launchers), kept in stasis and only awakened when needed. They shamble around slowly like zombies when not in attack mode. The Knight and Bishop variants have camouflage which means they can turn invisible to sneak up on you. So ... ninja, zombie and robot, 3 out of 4. Not bad, eh?

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' is heavy in this trope (more so in the books) due to the Jackals, or Kig-Yar: a series of dinosaur-like aliens that travel around raiding vessels for goods to sell, like pirates(!). They're also employed by the overtly religious Covenant as special-forces soldiers and (in one case) as specialised assassins, making them a troperiffic race of Ninja Priest Commando Dinosaur Space Pirates. Wow.

* VideoGame/CommandAndConquer: Kane's Wrath has the Marked of Kane, whose basic infantry squad is composed by [[NightOfTheLivingMooks undead]] [[AppliedPhlebotinum tiberium]]-mutated cyborgs of [[KnightTemplar religious fanatics]] armed with, intead of arms, [[ArmCannon heavy machine guns]] and {{EMP}} cannons.

** His later review of ''Painkiller'', specifically the particular projectiles launched by a certain weapon. "Shurikens and lightning!"
* ''{{Gungrave}}'' is built around this. If ''Gungrave: Overdose'' didn't feature Rocketbilly Redcadillac - a rockabilly ghost possessing an electricity-shooting guitar - I wouldn't have bought it. Did I mention it's all designed by the creator of ''Manga/{{Trigun}}''?

** Another mod for Half-Life, ''AfraidOfMonsters'', has this too. Not as blatant as the above mod, but one enemy in it is a ''giant flickering ghost alien NightmareFace that shoot homing bees with a childish laughter''. But it's all okay, because it is only one of many hallucinations in the mod.

* Captain Falcon of VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} fame is part racecar driver, part bounty hunter. It doesn't hurt that he actually IS {{badass}}.

** The second ''MegaManStarForce'' game stretches this to its limits; depending on what game you choose, you can become a sentient waveform ninja, knight, or ''dinosaur''. And you can also temporarily turn into a combination of two of the three - or, depending on your waveband Brothers, a combination of ''all three''. There were also plans to include a pirate tribe, but unfortunately, uh, they didn't make it.

*** Speaking of aliens in the Mega Man series, the Robot Masters of Mega Man V for the Gameboy are all confirmed alien in origin, this gives us such combinations as Venus the Alien Anthropomorphic Crab Robot, and Pluto the Alien WereCat Robot.

* ''SakuraTaisen'' features [[{{Takarazuka}} Takarazuka actresses]] with [[MagicalGirl magical powers]] piloting [[{{Steampunk}} steam-powered]] [[HumongousMecha mechas]] to fight [[DemonicInvaders demons]]. And it's also DatingSim.
** The fifth (and to date, final) game takes it to another level, with one of the girls also being a half-Japanese/half-American Samurai Cowgirl [[{{Meido}} Maid]]. With a SplitPersonality.

* Gruntilda Winkybunion of the {{Banjo-Kazooie}} series seems to fall deeper into this trope with each subsequent game. In ''Banjo-Tooie'' she turns into a Zombie Witch, in ''Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge'' she appears as a Robot Ghost Witch, and in ''Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts'', not only is Gruntilda now a zombie head in a robot body, but during the final battle attacks the heroes on a pirate ship, thus making her a Pirate Zombie Robot Witch.
** Grunty has a number of more mundane titles she can add to her name as well, including Captain (Rusty Bucket Bay), CEO (Grunty Industries), Aviator (Banjo Pilot), and Mechanic (Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts).

* One of the bonus characters in ''VideoGame/OrcAttackFlatulentRebellion'' is a skeletal orc pirate. Another one is half-orc, half-''minotaur''.



* ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}:'' The Beastly Scourge manages to combine ''four'' different monsters into one lifecycle. The Scourge is triggered by consumption of the Old Blood (vampire) - which originates from [[spoiler:otherworldly Great Ones (EldritchAbomination)]] - and first turns the afflicted into mindless, deformed husks (zombie), before finally transforming them into lycanthropes (werewolf). So basically throughout the game you're fighting Vampiric Zombified [[spoiler:Cosmic]] Werewolves.

* One of the late-game random enemy encounters in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' is the Dinozombie. An undead, [[DemBones skeletal]] dinosaur. Complete with will o' wisps. Oh, and Dinozombies can ''[[DinosaursAreDragons breathe fire]]''.

* For the combination of mundane and awesome, you can't beat ''KingdomHearts''. Disney and SquareEnix sounds like an unlikely combination, until you sit down and play it. Which of the 2 companies is mundane and which is awesome is up to you.
