* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', there's the crew of the USS Constitution are robot sailors, complete with old-fashioned Anglo-American accents and ranks befitting the theme.

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

** Perhaps the penultimate example was Blizzard's response to a number of beta-testers complaining that a zone in ''Cataclysm'' was not "epic" enough. Blizzard promptly inserted Epicus Maximus, a flying shark with a [[AustinPowers laser on it's head]] being ridden by a T-rex being ridden by an undead shredding a guitar that was also an axe.

* The Revenant from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is a Vampire Werewolf Grim Reaper Death Knight [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers Detective]]. The explanation for this is that in-universe, ''all'' of those myths (maybe not that last one) are based on human mythology interpreting vague memories of Revenant powers.

* ''Videogame/NinjaGolf'' is an interesting case: It's either this or straight up GratuitousNinja, depending on how you look at it. The gameplay consists of a rather mediocre golf video game, broken up by a mediocre ninja-based sidescroller as you travel between golf strokes.

* ''VideoGame/ParaWorld'' probably takes the prize for this trope. Where to begin? Among others, the units available include ninjas, voodoo doctors who can restore you to life after you die, pirates who come from the same clan as the aforementioned ninjas, a guy who destroys buildings by ''headbutting'' them- buildings, now!-, a catapult that shoots raptor eggs that hatch on impact and attack the nearest living creature, a guy with a gatling gun- made of [[Bamboo Technology]] wood-, vikings, amazon warriors, a guy who kills himself with snakes as his main form of attack, and, oh, yes, jetpack vikings. The dinosaurs have upgrades ranging from adding blades onto their tusks to drugging them up so that they don't take damage until the high wears off. Attempts to describe any battles that occur in this game- which is, surprisingly, subpar even ''with'' all this- are entertaining, to say the least. "Then his submarine dinosaur sank my flamethrower ship!"
