Robots and wizards, spaceships and dragons, lasers and fireballs. [[MixAndMatch Mix these ingredients]] in your cyber-witch's boiling pot of dark matter, and you've got yourself Science Fantasy.

ScienceFiction and {{Fantasy}} stories can be difficult to tell apart under normal circumstances, as all but the very [[MohsScaleOfSciFiHardness hardest]] sci-fi introduces some hypothetical technology that one has to take on faith, like FTLTravel or HumanoidAliens. And at the other end of the scale, even HighFantasy works have consistency requirements like MagicAIsMagicA, which can blur the line into SufficientlyAnalyzedMagic.

Science Fantasy works, on the other hand, take traditional Fantasy and Science Fiction tropes and throw them in a blender, purposely creating a setting that has the [[MixAndMatch feel of both]]. Expect to see a lot of classic Fantasy tropes (e.g. [[SwordFight warriors with swords]], [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]], [[HermeticMagic wizards]], [[BrightCastle castles]], and [[OurElvesAreDifferent elves]]) ''and'' a lot of standard Science Fiction tropes (e.g. [[CoolStarship spaceships]], [[AlienTropes aliens]], [[EnergyWeapon lasers]], [[TropesOnScienceAndUnscience scientists]], {{robot}}s, and TimeTravel).

In any event, it's bound to include SufficientlyAnalyzedMagic, {{Magitech}}, FunctionalMagic, and MagicFromTechnology. Sometimes, it may contain so much fantasy and science fiction as to be both FantasyKitchenSink and SciFiKitchenSink.

It should be noted that some works may slant towards one or the other, yet still contain elements of both. Science Fantasy lies near the middle of a continuum between ScienceFiction and {{Fantasy}}, so there will naturally be a wide range of works that lie somewhere between "Fantasy with a dash of SciFi" and "SciFi with a smidgen of Fantasy". For an explanation of why the genres are so linked, see the [[Analysis/SpeculativeFiction analysis page on Speculative Fiction]].

Subtrope of SpeculativeFiction, under which all {{Fantasy}} and ScienceFiction falls. Compare UrbanFantasy, GaslampFantasy, SpaceOpera, and PlanetaryRomance. Contrast HowUnscientific, where the mix of genres seems out of place.

Science fantasy may also arguably describe character oriented stories where the fantastic elements are very subtle and are common to both science fiction and fantasy. Examples could include ParanormalRomance which just happens to involve AppliedPhlebotinum, [[TimeTravelRomance TimeTravel]] or ArtificialIntelligence. Many such stories strive to keep the fantastic elements understated (often in the form of minimal SpecialEffects) in the interest of focusing on human drama.

!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''LightNovel/ScrappedPrincess'' blends fantasy and sci-fi elements, with a world seemingly in MedievalStasis where magic and TronLines abound. Then adds RuinsOfTheModernAge [[spoiler: and the Skid into the mix and the existences of Xeferis, and Natalie, who're [[EmpathicWeapon dragoons]] that link with their masters. And the Peacemakers, who are a powerful race of alien overlords who can enslave the minds of all who gaze upon them. And their true forms resemble HumongousMecha!]]
* ''Anime/AuraBattlerDunbine'' was a noteworthy HumongousMecha anime because it was a YoshiyukiTomino work and because it happened in a medieval setting full with unicorns, fairies... and giant robots. And that medieval world was a parallel dimension the main character arrived at through a dimensional gate.
* In ''Anime/PanzerWorldGalient'' the setting was a typical medieval fantasy world... with giant robots thrown in the mix.
** [[spoiler:Later events show the setting to be closer to a science fiction story set in a medieval society (with a plot inspired by heroic fantasy tropes) than it is a high fantasy story that features giant robots.]]
* ''Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld'' is another series that blends science fiction with fantasy, featuring a story centered around [[StableTimeLoop a time paradox]] set in a land rife with magic and supernatural wonder. Yet, there are remnants of ancient technology as well, such as the Stairway to the Sky, the Eye of God, and the demon dolls.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' seemed to be straight UrbanFantasy at first, what with the [[VancianMagic mages]] and {{golem}}s and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]]. Then [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Chachamaru]] came in. And the {{Mad Scientist}}s. And the [[{{Magitek}} Magic Internet]]. And the magical PlayfulHacker vs TheCracker face-off in cyberspace. And the UsefulNotes/{{Mar|s}}tian {{Time Travel}}ler from the future with HumongousMecha and MechaMooks. And most recently, it seems that [[spoiler: the magic world is actually on Mars.]] It ends up as sci-fi and fantasy in a blender.
* In ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'', the Space-Time Administration Bureau that the main characters work for is like ''Franchise/StarTrek'''s Federation, except where ''Star Trek'' would have a piece of TechnoBabble to power its futuristic devices, ''Nanoha'' just uses magic. Magical {{Energy Weapon}}s, magical FasterThanLightTravel, magical {{Cyborg}}s, magical artificial intelligence with Windows-esque error codes...
* ''Anime/OutlawStar'' has spaceships and aliens, but the SpacePirates use Chi Magic and the most popular [[PleasurePlanet resort world]] in the galaxy was originally a {{Mana}} mine. The main character's signature weapon is a fireball-flinging MagiTek pistol.
* ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' technically may be a sci-fi, but essentially all of the aliens are some form of {{Youkai}} from JapaneseMythology: Lum is from the Planet Oni, Yuki the yuki-onna is from Neptune, etc. In practice, anything from Science Fiction or Fantasy can happen from TimeTravel to {{Onmyodo}} exorcisms, [[RuleOfFunny so long as it's funny]].
* ''Manga/WolfsRain'': Technology meets mythology.
* ''Manga/DragonBall Z'' starts out as a new rendition of a fantastic Chinese folk tale, and the titular {{MacGuffin}}s are blatantly magical -- but then we get alien invaders, space travel, and androids and it all gets weirder from there.
** The very first chapter of ''Manga/DragonBall'' has a motorbike-in-a-bottle.
* The Korean manga (manwah) ''Webcomic/{{Noblesse}}'' features an 800-year old vampire awakening in modern-day Korea, his having to deal with an age-old betrayal and his fellow Noble Vampires, who wield immensely powerful Soul Weapons passed down from generation to generation, containing the spirits and powers of their previous owners. Oh, and the bad guys is an international military organization known as the Union, which runs SuperSoldier experiments with modified humans, werewolves, and vampires.
* ''Manga/{{ARIA}}'' is a subversion. Set in a replica of Venice on the planet Aqua (née UsefulNotes/{{Mars}}), there are elaborate technological control systems [[{{Terraform}} maintaining the environment]] -- floating islands for climate control, underground facilities for enhancing the planet's gravity -- the works. Then the cast is caught up in supernatural time travel and ghosts of the past appear. This sounds like the setting for a gripping tale of planetary exploration and the technological and social struggles of the colonists as they deal with a mysterious past. But really, it's just an excuse for SceneryPorn, as the female gondoliers float through a beautiful, peaceful city in their [[SliceOfLife happy-go-lucky lives]].
* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' the tag line is "when science and magic cross paths", and draws liberally from all sorts of speculative fiction and fantasy tropes for each story arcs.
* ''Manga/{{Zombiepowder}}'' flavors it with Western themes. At the same time as you have gunplay, [[ChainsawGood chainswords]], bounty hunting, and gangs of outlaws, you have strange arts bordering on magic, people who can teleport, and rings that eat life force and can use it to revive the dead and make the living immortal.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' is a MagicalGirl show. The science part comes in when Kyubey's motivation for recruiting magical girls is revealed. [[spoiler:He and his race are SufficientlyAdvancedAliens attempting to stop the heat death of the universe. Magical girls and witches ''really are'' magical and not bound by the laws of physics, so the energy they produce can be used to fight entropy.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Comic books, especially those set within the mainstream superhero universes published by ''[[Franchise/TheDCU DC]]'' and ''[[Franchise/MarvelUniverse Marvel]]'', don't so much straddle the line as obliterate it, in that ray-guns and magical spells coexist quite comfortably. While there are too many examples to list here, here are a few notable ones:
** The original Defenders featured both the ''ComicBook/SilverSurfer'', an alien adventurer who had been empowered by the embodiment of universal entropy and whose own series was a classic space opera, and ''ComicBook/DoctorStrange'', the Sorcerer Supreme, who fights demons.
** ''ComicBook/CaptainAtom'' also seemed to fall on both sides of sci-fi and fantasy, since his powers, which came from the alien tissue grafted to his skin by a nuclear explosion, also tied him to the life-energy of the universe, which allowed him to journey to the afterlife, fight death itself, and then return.
** ''Comicbook/SwampThing'', as Creator/AlanMoore re-envisioned him, was the latest in an ancient line of plant elementals with godlike powers, and was able to travel to the afterlife and other immaterial realms. At the same time, his origin received a pseudo-scientific explanation (transmission of memories from predator to prey), and he later discovered that his mind was an electromagnetic wave pattern capable of subtle manipulation that allowed him to travel to any planet with vegetation.
** ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'' is classically vulnerable to three things: the particular frequency of EM radiation emitted by the fragments of his homeworld, red sunlight, and magic. He's also vulnerable to psychic attack. Telepathy itself fits quite comfortably in either genre.
*** His alternate universe counterpart Superboy-Prime is invulnerable to magic though... [[{{Asspull}} for some reason]].
*** And speaking of Superman, on ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', not only does magic exist alongside high technology, but it often seems, at least to some viewers, that Jor-El was more wizard than scientist, and that the voice which inhabits the Fortress of Solitude is more ghost than artificial intelligence. Certainly, his actions often seem to follow a more supernatural than scientific logic, as when he tells Clark that the price of his resurrection will be the death of one of his loved ones in exchange, or when he arms Clark with a dagger with glowing runes on the blade capable of killing a Kryptonian.
** The ''ComicBook/NewGods'', especially in the original stories. On the one hand, they exist on two planets that are in an EnforcedColdWar, one side is doing a [[AlienInvasion covert invasion of Earth]], and they use [[ClarkesThirdLaw what looks like highly advanced technology]]. On the other hand we have things like the [[Literature/TheBible biblically inspired]] [[SentientCosmicForce Source]], [[TheGrimReaper a personification of Death]] (connected to said Source), and the BigBad is looking for something called the "Anti-Life Equation" which [[DependingOnTheWriter in the original stories]] existed in the minds of a couple of humans and gave them a CompellingVoice. Not to mention the New Gods were [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally thought of]] as characters in ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'' (which also had some of this trope, at least early on).
** Along with everything that has a comic book background: ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'', ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'', ...
* The ''ComicBook/{{Fables}}'' universe contains {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s of various literary concepts. Amongst the genres, Science Fiction and Fantasy are twins (and have a little brother, Superhero); at one point Fantasy remarks to her brother "We're so sympatico that sometimes it's hard to tell where I leave off and you begin."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fanfiction]]
* Many fanfics will fall into this category, usually crossovers between works on opposite ends of the {{speculative fiction}} scale.
* ''Fanfic/UndocumentedFeatures'', a MegaCrossover, fuses many {{Fantasy}} and ScienceFiction sources into a single narrative. For example, a [[NorseMythology Norse God]] used ''[[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons dimension door]]'' to get his party onto the [[Franchise/StarTrek Klingon]] SpacePirates' ship, whereupon their sorceress summoned a protective [[PetalPower wall of roses]] as they hacked the computer to gain control of the ship -- all while a SpaceBattle was going between the two ships outside.
* ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureau'', is set TwentyMinutesInTheFuture with A.I. handling most menial tasks, holograms everywhere, cybernetic upgrades readily available, and the early phases of space colonization. With the emergence of Equestria there are also spell casting unicorns, weather controlling pegasi, monsters from across many mythologies, and two PhysicalGods of the moon and sun.
* ''Fanfic/GloriousShotgunPrincess'' is a crossover between the (comparatively) hard SciFi of ''Franchise/MassEffect'', and the clearly fantasy (and [[EverybodyWasKungFuFighting Kung-Fu]]) world of {{Exalted}}.
* ''Blog/AlwaysHavingJuice'' is set on an alien planet in a fictional planetary system with at least two other life-sustaining planets in it, and EveryoneIsASuper (and because of their BizarreAlienBiology if one's not, it's curtains for them...) with {{Floating Continent}}s kept afloat by magical (and occasionally evil) artifacts from the ancient past. That's just the tip of the iceberg.
* ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'' completely blurs the lines between fantasy and science fiction. The planet C'hou has the quasi-Victorian land of Ketafa, with its guns, factories, and occasional motorized vehicle, and the exceptionally nonstandard fantasy continent of Baravada; the Fans influence events via magitech and watch things on their computer screen; and the four visit three wildly different worlds on their Vasyn quest, including a 1950s parallel New York-Xanth expy, a universe where science has overtaken magic (but it still has its adherents), and a more traditionally magical world of adventure that was partially put together with magitech.
* ''Fanfic/MassEffectHumanRevolution'' starts out as Space {{Noir}}, but fantasy elements start creeping in from the Caleston arc onwards due to the lingering effects of SufficientlyAdvancedAliens.
* The universe of ''Fanfic/SonicXDarkChaos'', beings essentially a twisted mixture of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' and ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'', runs entirely with this. It combines SpaceOpera science fiction mixed in with magical Chaos powers, Lovecraftian horrors, and SufficientlyAdvancedAliens.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* The genre of ''Franchise/StarWars'' was explicitly stated by [[WordOfGod Lucas]] to be space fantasy.
** It's the story of a farmboy who meets an old wizard, learns magic and swordfighting from him, and then fights an evil wizard and a dark knight. [[HerosJourney He travels]] throughout strange lands were he meets monsters, rescues princesses, and....flies a spaceship. Because all this takes place in another galaxy where space aliens fight with laser guns and manual labor is done by robots. The prequels participate in some DoingInTheWizard, but even they don't try to explain the ghosts and the prophecies. The massive ExpandedUniverse gives us dragons, magical artifacts...and also features [[DoingInTheWizard mass dewizardification]], {{depending on the writer}}.
* In ''Film/{{Thor}}'', Asgard seems to be half CrystalSpiresAndTogas utopia, half Middle Earth clone. On the one side, we've got the Bifrost, a wormhole opening device which seems to function as an Einstein-Rosenberg bridge. On the other, we've got Thor's hammer coming to his hand when he proves worthy in something that cannot possibly be explained by anything but magic. The film [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this by citing ClarkesThirdLaw: sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
** ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' takes this UpToEleven by having having Elves with spaceships and lasers (not SpaceElves mind you. Actual Elves), Asgardian AA guns, and a "soul forge" which Jane helpfully points out is in fact a quantum field generator. Once again, science IS magic.
* The ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' film series is, at its core, an epic fantasy story told in modern times with [[HumongousMecha giant transforming robots]]. It has the usual elements such as a mythical origin story, ancient artifacts of great, ambiguous power, discussions of fate, destiny, and the call to adventure, themes of absolute good versus absolute evil, and messiah and anti-Christ figures.
* ''Film/{{Tron}}'' starts out with what looks like a fairly standard [[AIIsACrapshoot evil AI]] plot, but then the main character is shot by a laser and "digitized" into a computer. He finds himself in a magical world where computer programs are people that worship godlike "users," and takes part in an epic quest to defeat an EvilOverlord (the Master Control Program) using a powerful artifact (an identity disc containing data that can destroy the MCP). The movie would probably be best described as a pure fantasy story, were it not for the fact that it was [[{{Setting}} set]] inside computers.
* ''Film/SuckerPunch'': The third battle scene is this at level 11. When Goblins are perfectly capable of being catapulted onto your World-war 2 gunship, and your assault rifle's bullets are just bouncing off that big dragon's hide, you realize that yeah, I'm in a Science Fantasy scene.
* ''Franchise/TheMatrix'': Neo is "TheChosenOne", prophecied by an ''oracle'', and he has special powers that allow him to fly, bend spoons, and dodge bullets. Oh, but it's only cause he's in a computer simulation run by intelligent machines.
* The ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' and ''Franchise/{{Gamera}}'' franchises have monsters of both magical and scientific origin fighting or teaming up with each other, sometimes within the same movie.
* ''Film/{{Immortal}}'' is set in the future and features things such as flying cars, human augmentation, and other sci-fi conventions, but there are also Egyptian gods running amok with supernatural powers.
* ''Franchise/TheChroniclesOfRiddick'' series shifted into this with ''Film/TheChroniclesOfRiddick'', the second film. ''Film/PitchBlack'' was fairly hard sci-fi, but ''Riddick 2'' introduces superhuman warriors on a holy crusade led by an EvilOverlord, elemental alien seers, and a prophecy saying that Riddick (now the last living member of an extinct {{Proud Warrior Race|Guy}} destroyed by the Overlord) will be the one to kill the Necromonger leader. It still comes off as a strange mix with LowFantasy, as the harder elements are still present in every scene that doesn't involve the Necros.
* ''Film/ElectricDreams'': A 1980s era home computer achieves sentience because it's owner accidentally spills sparkling wine on the keyboard. It also seizes control of all the household appliances, and starts writing love songs for it's owner's girlfriend (much like ''Theatre/CyranoDeBergerac''). Naturally, a LoveTriangle Ensues.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* The ''Literature/YoungWizards'' series by Creator/DianeDuane, especially from the third book onwards. What do you do with your MagicAIsMagicA FunctionalMagic that looks suspiciously like [[ProgrammingLanguage programming]]? Go to Mars. And then explore the rest of the galaxy and meet up with aliens.
* This is a major part of the premise of ''Literature/ArtemisFowl''. It's squarely between the two as well. Book number five, one of the better examples, has Artemis calculating, mathematically, the exact time that demons would appear out of nowhere (ItMakesSenseInContext) due to magic, and the use of a high-yield bomb to power a spell.
** Not to mention the whole premise of the book is a boy trying to steal gold from a leprechaun- done up as a high-tech heist movie! The boy is an wealthy evil prodigy, the gold is a ransom, and the leprechaun is actually an agent of Lower Elements Police reconnaissance (LEPrecon).
* Heinlein's ''Literature/GloryRoad'' is a reconstruction of pulp adventure novels with an ordinary modern day man swashbuckling his way across several savage planets inhabited by "dragons" and other such beasties in search of a device that recorded the memories of all the Empresses of the Fifty Universes.
* PiersAnthony's ''Literature/ApprenticeAdept'' series fits perfectly. The setting is one world split across two realities. One of them is called Proton, which is high tech, while the other is known as Phaze, where magic prevails.
* "Sufficiently Advanced Technology" by Christopher Nuttall. The story is of a Post-Singularity, Spacefaring society with vast technology that discovers an anomalous planet where wizards rule over feudal cities.
* ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'' series by Stephen King, set in a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] world where oil refineries, nuclear-powered water pumps, and the music of Music/ZZTop co-exist with wizards, succubi, and gunslingers who fight for truth and justice in the [[KingArthur Arthurian]] tradition.
* DavidWeber's ''Literature/HellsGate'' series is about two human. civilizations coming into contact with each other through inter-universal portals. One civilization, The Union of Aracana, is a very {{Magitek}} civilization with wizards, dragons (that are genetically engineered) and the the main fighting weapons are swords and crossbows. The other one, The Empire of Sharona, has PsychicPowers and other little things like rifles, machine guns, cannons, steam engines, armored personnel carriers, trains, battleships, etc... Neither side reacts well to the existence of the other.
* Creator/AnneMcCaffrey:
** The ''Literature/DragonridersOfPern'' books feature intelligent, telepathic, teleporting, and occasionally time-traveling dragons. These are just genetically engineered upgrades of preexisting diminutive "dragons", which have similar powers, though this LostTechnology aspect isn't explored until the prequels. Later books also feature a supercomputer.\\
\\
[=McCaffrey=] has always maintained that the books are Science Fiction rather than fantasy, as everything is based on hard science, and she has spoken to many authorities in various sciences to work out the specifics of the world and the things that happen on it.
** In ''Literature/TheShipWho Won'', a RolePlayingGame-obsessed space ship crew discovers a planet where magic actually works. ([[spoiler:Until they discover the inhabitants are just abusing a [[MagicFromTechnology Sufficiently Advanced]] weather-control system]]). Definitely sold as Sci-Fi.
** ''[[Literature/AcornaSeries Acorna]]'' and sequels are about a foundling creature who looks like a "unicorn girl," complete with a horn on her forehead, unearthly beauty, and the power to purify water and air. Except she's not exactly magical: she's an alien, and the setting is basic science fiction with spaceships and interplanetary travel. Double subverted when it is revealed that her species is genetically-engineered by aliens who combined their own DNA with that of unicorns they rescued from Earth.
* Julian May's ''Pliocene Exile/Galactic Milieu'' books feature aliens and spaceships, but also planet-shaking psychic powers, elves and goblins. Generally sold as Sci-Fi.
** In all fairness, the elves and goblins are clearly referred to as alien races throughout the series.
* Terry Brooks's ''Literature/{{Shannara}}'' series takes place in our future, AfterTheEnd, and includes robots and mad computers, but also elves and magic. Generally sold as fantasy.
* The ''Literature/{{Dragaera}}'' books look at first to be typical DungeonPunk, with magic, elves (OK, "Dragaerans"), swordfights, et cetera. However, careful inspection indicates science-fictional underpinnings: humans ("Easterners") are from "small invisible lights" (meaning the stars, invisible in the Empire because of the enclouding), genetics and gene manipulation are well-understood, and some characters view abstract concepts like "the soul" as matters of engineering, not religion. Let's not even get ''started'' on the gods and the nature of magic...
* Randall Garrett's ''Literature/LordDarcy'' stories are a ''Literature/SherlockHolmes''-style mystery series set in an alternate history with very rule-based magic. While technology (and politics) has barely equaled the gaslight-era by the 1970s, magic has effectively reached a bit higher than modern day technology. And magic isn't just useful, it's carefully codified, requiring as much study, repeatability and dedication (and certification, licensing and taxes) as modern engineering or medicine. Though now commonly billed as fantasy, most of the stories originally saw the light of day in either ''Analog Science Fiction'' or ''Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine''.
** Randall Garrett once stated that Lord Darcy’s world and ours shared the same laws of physics. He defined the “magic” of Darcy’s world as a form of psionics, which he thought of as a real-world phenomenon.
* Creator/GeneWolfe's ''Literature/BookOfTheNewSun'' series is set AfterTheEnd in a SchizoTech world mixing feudalism (and a LowFantasy style of narration) with space travel, androids, laser weapons, etc. However, there is a device the protagonist gets a hold of called the Claw of the Conciliator which appears to be magical with no scientific explanation. Generally sold as science fiction.
** One reviewer comparing the tetraology with the fifth book, ''The Urth of the New Sun'' described the first four books as "science fiction pretending to be fantasy", and the fifth as "fantasy pretending to be science fiction".
* Creator/TerryPratchett's ''Literature/NomesTrilogy'' is a good example of genre blending. All three books are written as a ''[[Literature/TheBorrowers Borrowers]]''/''[[Literature/TheLittles Littles]]'' sort of "tiny people living undetectably amongst us" story, except that it is revealed that the Nomes are in fact aliens marooned on Earth who have devolved somewhat, who only realize what they are when "The Thing", a mysterious box that one of the characters carries, starts talking and turns out to be a sentient computer.
* Creator/NeilGaiman and Micheal Reaves' book ''Literature/{{Interworld}}'' features a multiverse organized as an arc, with the worlds on one side being ones where magic is in control, and worlds on the other where science is the dominant paradigm. Each end is ruled by a multiplanar empire, one representing Magic and one representing Science, which are both trying to take over the entire multiverse. There is a third organization, made up of different versions of the main character, who fight both sides and have the ability to travel freely between worlds, who move about the center of the arc.
* Creator/RogerZelazny liked to challenge the boundaries between Science Fiction and Fantasy, and was known for blending in elements from Mythology:
** ''Literature/LordOfLight'' featured apparent Hindu Gods--actually humans with mutant powers--on a far-future colony world.
** ''Literature/CreaturesOfLightAndDarkness'', often considered a companion novel to ''Lord of Light'', featured ''actual'' Egyptian Gods in a StandardSciFiSetting.
** ''Eye of Cat'' had Native American Gods in a far-future setting.
** ''Jack of Shadows'' takes place on a planet which is half-magic (dark side), and half technological (sunlit side). The titular antihero moves effortlessly between both.
* A lot of Jack Chalker's novels and series mixed up the two, often with SufficientlyAdvancedAlien (or sometimes human) tech providing a backdrop in which magical-like effects (sometimes called magic by the user who didn't understand it) were possible. The ''Literature/WellWorld'' series is an example of the alien version, while the ''Flux and Anchor'' series had the AppliedPhlebotinum created by humans.
** His ''Four Lords of the Diamond'' series features four planets seeded with a sort of alien parasite that provides people with strange powers, each unique to one of the four planets. The third book in particular involves a planet where people can effectively perform magic, and it's even called magic in the book.
* Mary Gentle's ''Literature/{{Grunts}}'' starts out as a stereotypical fantasy world told from the point of view of a tribe of Orcs. There's a Last Battle, a Dark Lord, a Nameless Necromancer, halfling thieves, [[{{Mordor}} The Dark Lands]], and all the things you'd normally expect to find in a HighFantasy world. Then the orcs get their hands on modern firearms (from our universe via a magic portal). Cue an elephant made to fly with anti-gravity and a cloaking stealth dragon. Then [[BugWar Aliens]] invade!
* ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'' should fit in this. There are plenty of things that should go well with science fiction (the fact that Dust is a particle, the numerous technologies that look as if they came from various degrees of civilization, from SteamPunk worlds to things akin to those you'd see on hard science fiction (especially in the last book), the alternate evolutionary paths of life on Earth seen in some worlds like that of the mulefa, etc.), but there are plenty of themes that should connect it to at least LowFantasy (the witches, the fact that Dust is conscious, the armoured polar bears, etc.)
* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'': A blue centaur gives a bunch of kids the ability to transform into animals so they can fight monsters. Could have been a fantasy book, but it just so happens the "centaur" is an alien, and the morphing powers have perfectly scientific explanations (alters your DNA etc.)
* Creator/OrsonScottCard, in the afterword to an audio recording of ''Literature/EndersGame'', talks about trying to sell a short story based in the world of ''The Worthing Saga''. He mentions that one of his rejections said that it was a good story, but it wasn't right for the magazine, as it was Fantasy rather than Science Fiction. He said that the reason it was considered Fantasy was because none of the scientific backdrop was present in the story. In the end, he concluded that the only difference between Fantasy and Science Fiction is that "Fantasy has trees, SciFi has rivets."
* Literature/BelisariusSeries has sword-bearing warriors, robots, scizo-tech, time-travel, visions of the future, and all, all mixed up.
* What's New on the differences between fantasy as science fiction: [[http://www.airshipentertainment.com/growfcomic.php?date=20070617 None]]
* The 1997 novel Literature/TaleOfTheComet by RolandGreen has an alien ship crashland on a StandardFantasySetting. The survivors and the natives band together to fight a [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Borg]] {{Expy}}, and some of the aliens learn magic by watching a native Wizard.
* ''Literature/{{Freakling}}'' by Lana Krumwiede is set in an after the end {{crapsaccharine world}} with some advanced technology and where people have psychic powers.
* Keith Hartman's ''Drew Parke'' books are set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture and mix holography and cloning tech with elements of MagicalRealism such as visions and RitualMagic done by a Wiccan circle.
* ''Literature/TheNightLand'' by Creator/WilliamHopeHodgson takes elements such as evil spirits, haunted houses, and your classic KnightInShiningArmor and throws them in with things like air-ships, chainsaw-like weapons, and energy-based superweapons.
* Much of NnediOkorafor's work falls into this category. ''Literature/TheShadowSpeaker'' and ''Literature/ZahrahTheWindseeker'' both are mixtures of sci-fi and fantasy, though ''Zahrah the Windseeker'' is more explicitly fantasy. Both take place in futuristic worlds that are very high tech (the former takes place in a future Earth and the latter takes place on another planet that is similar to Earth) that also have various people with magical powers.
* Creator/SergeyLukyanenko's ''Literature/ALordFromPlanetEarth'' trilogy is, while set in a sci-fi universe, definitely quite a lot of fantasy elements. Similar to ''Franchise/StarWars'', the author has create the setting in such a way as to force people to fight using swords instead of much more advanced weaponry using AppliedPhlebotinum that he doesn't even bother trying to explain (a commonly-used field that prevents any destructive reaction in its radius, including nuclear and [[AntiMatter annihilation]]). The twist is, the protagonist is a former army sergeant from Earth whose experiences in 20th-century hot spots have resulted in a CombatPragmatist, who immediately tries to come up with ways to get around the fact that he has never held a sword in his life prior to the events of the book. Most characters think that his methods are dishonorable and atrocious. Also, like any fantasy story, it has a princess that requires saving.
* ''Literature/TheWitchesOfKarres'' by James Schmidt is about a spaceship captain who rescues three little girls who turn out to be the titular witches. Yes, you could call it "psychic powers," but actually everyone in the book calls it "klatha magic."
* ''Literature/EckoRising'' by Daanie Ware combines a high tech cyberpunk world with that of fantasy.
* ''Literature/TheActsOfCaine'' mixes a Cyberpunk future Dystopy with a HighFantasy world ''far'' DarkerAndEdgier and BloodierAndGorier than your usual one.
* Samantha Shannon's ''Literature/TheBoneSeason'' is set in an Alternate History CyberPunk England and adds in people with Psychic Powers and Rephaim, a race that combines characteristics of TheFairFolk and vampires.
* Creator/SimonRGreen's novels are set in a Verse that's about half supernatural horror/fantasy and half gonzo MadScience.
* Eoin Colfer's ''The Supernaturalist'' combines a CyberPunk future with invisble (to all but a very few), soul eating [[spoiler: (or so it appears)]] cryptozoological creatures called Parasites.
* Christopher Stasheff's ''Literature/WarlockOfGramarye'' series dances mockingly on the edge of SF. Most of it takes place in a cod-Elizabethan land of swords and sorcery, knights and lords, witches and fairies, but all the magic is more or less explained away by a mixture of psi powers, alien life forms and SufficientlyAdvancedTechnology.
* Aldrea Alien's Literature/TheRogueKing series starts with spaceships crashing on an alien world, which is largely controlled by gods and the larger population have some form of magic.
* Literature/WyvernDiary has dragons (that lift their multi-ton bodies with telekinesis), flat out magic, scientifically-(sort of) explained elemental manipulation, plasma and magnetic weaponry, mecha designed to fight dragons, regeneration both biological and magical, mutagens, undead made from technology and various beasts that may or may not be biological weapons.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': A very clear-cut television example of this. Oh, where to begin... The original series was supposed to be firmly grounded in observable reality -- the Doctor himself identified as a scientist on a number of different occasions, because the series was originally intended to be an EdutainmentShow -- but then the more zany science fiction elements took over. By now, it uses elements from all over SpeculativeFiction, from {{eldritch horror}}s to Venetian [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]] to [[{{Cyborg}} Cybermen]]. (Though this gets subverted, as many of the apparent monsters [[DoingInTheWizard commonly turn out to be just unusual aliens instead]].) And it's all brought together by a {{Time Travel}}ing TARDIS [[RuleOfFunny which looks like an antique police box on the outside]] and apparently goes where and when it is needed. The Eleventh Doctor's era was even explicitly stylised as "a dark fairytale", mixing {{space opera}} worthy elements with a childhood-like imagination and fantasy ethos.
* ''Series/{{Lost}}'' has ghosts, immortal people, and sentient Islands that can move...and also well thought out time travel, exotic matter, and electromagnetism as a key plot elements. Though, really, ''[[MindScrew no one knows]] [[GenreBusting what genre it is]].''
* ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', ''Franchise/SuperSentai'', and ''Franchise/KamenRider''.
* The trope is one of the major themes of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' season 4. The penultimate episode is an epic battle between the forces of science and the supernatural, orchestrated by a BigBad who has a foot in both camps.
* The second season of ''Series/BuckRogersInTheTwentyFifthCentury'' has a lot of fantasy involved. In "Journey to Oasis", it has orc-like monsters, a cave filled with deathtraps, and a living sword with an invisible wielder.
* Both the original and reimagined ''BattlestarGalactica'' inculded a large amount of cosmology and theology. Much of it appeared to be in the form of SufficientlyAdvancedAliens, particularly in the form of the mythical Lords of Kobol and the angelic seraphs from ''War of the Gods''. The original series had a liberal dose of thinly disguised references to the Book of Mormon, the Christian Bible, Judaism, and Islam. The reimagined series settled for Greco-Roman mythology.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Manhua]]
* The VampireFiction series ''Manhua/{{Bloodline}}'' has this kind of setting. While Lilo and her allies stick with magic, the antagonistic Shengdi a variety of weapons. Examples: [[CoolAirship Flying mobile bases]], modern day battle suits, scythes, [[TankGoodness tanks]]. And, of course, silver bullets and their own kind of magic.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Roleplay]]
* ''Roleplay/DestroyTheGodmodder'': Everything from gods to giant spaceships to wizards to everything in between.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Usually, ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' is average fantasy, but whenever [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul Phy]][[AlwaysChaoticEvil re]][[BodyHorror xia]] is involved, it becomes this. Especially now that they have access to Blue mana.
** Blue mana in general tends to lean in this direction, especially with the Frankenstein-esque {{Mad Scientist}}s on Innistrad, and the Izzet League on Ravnica, who were practically built around this trope.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' is the quintessential CyberPunk UrbanFantasy.
* ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} Technomancer''. The first above-ground atomic explosion in the U.S. releases magic into the world. As a result, people can cast spells and weird hybrid creatures are born, but only in the area covered by magical fallout.
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. Several supplements and campaign settings over the years have been based on this premise:
** Module S3 ''Expedition to the Barrier Peaks'', set in a spaceship that crashed in the ''TabletopGame/{{Greyhawk}}'' setting.
** The ''Odyssey - Tale of the Comet'' boxed set, which also involved a crashed spaceship.
** Modules [=DA2=] ''Temple of the Frog'' and [=DA3=] ''City of the Gods'', both of which occurred in the ''TabletopGame/{{Blackmoor}}'' setting.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Spelljammer}}'' is essentially D&D as a SpaceOpera with magic-powered [[SpaceIsAnOcean wooden ships]] sailing the phlogiston currents between stars.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Eberron}}'' is one of the codifiers of the DungeonPunk sub-sub-genre. Elemental binding magic allows for airships, mag-lev trains, and sapient constructs, among other things.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' looooves itself this trope. Not only does it have an entire country based on the aforementioned Barrier Peaks and an entire book exploring the various alien worlds in Golarion's solar system, but two of the newest races are literally aliens and robots (The Androids and the Lashunta if you're wondering)!
* ''TabletopGame/D20Modern''. The standard setting is UrbanFantasy, but there's plenty of options for adding sf into the mix. The bodak, for example, is a [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombie]] [[TheGreys Grey]].
** Technically, the game is "whatever the GM wants". The only explicitly Science Fantasy campaign setting is ''From the Dark Heart Of Space'' from ''d20 Future''. Though ''Dark Matter'' comes close.
** The supplement ''d20 Cyberscape'' has a sample {{cyberpunk}} setting and devotes two paragraphs and an illustration to a variant with magic and fantasy races.
** A relatively obscure, but critically well-regarded, third-party book called the Second World Sourcebook was explicitly written to enable the standard "d20 System" (i.e. 3rd Edition ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'') and ''D20Modern'' to be used together, mixing and matching characters created under both sets of rules. It posits, among other things, an extensive network of portals between a D&D style StandardFantasySetting and our own world. Though that probably sounds more like UrbanFantasy, the results would more closely resemble this trope in practise.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Dragonstar}}'' is a D20 RolePlayingGame that combines ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' fantasy roleplay roles with a ScienceFiction setting with interstellar travel, robots, and other features of futuristic technology. Thus you get wizards with laser pistols and an interstellar empire ruled by dragons.
* ''TabletopGame/FengShui'' takes place in a universe where robot monkeys coexist with sorcerers and demonic creatures.
* The universe of the tabletop roleplaying game ''[[DarthWiki/TheChroniclesOfFate Chaos]]''. You know you're in for a case of Science Fantasy when your [[TheVerse verse]] is a CrossoverCosmology {{multiverse}} containing [[TheMultiverse every possible type of universe]], but that's just the beginning. Described as “cosmic fantasy”, ''[[DarthWiki/TheChroniclesOfFate Chaos]]'' is intended to have all the feeling of a fantasy setting, the only thing that makes it ''not'' explicitly fantasy is that it just so happens to have sci-fi “props” and window dressing. To quote directly from the book, “''Chaos'' is an over-the-top, epic cosmic fantasy. It's got dragons and spaceships, cyborgs and wizards, knights, aliens, superheroes, gods, demons, time travel, energy weapons, parallel universes, romance, quests, wars, duels, ancient conspiracies, buried treasures and lost artifacts, distant planets, weird creatures, corrupt politicians…and a guy named [[ArchangelMichael Mike]].”
* Similarly, the tabletop RPG ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' is set a few centuries after the high tech world of tomorrow is utterly trashed by the return of magic. Human supremacist armies of cyborgs and HumongousMecha traipse across the landscape. Atlantis has risen. Sorcerers summon demons and raise the dead. Rifts in spacetime spew out critters from other dimensions more or less at random. Elves and dragons and goblins (oh my) roam the wilderness. Killer cyborgs from another dimension want to kill all humanoid life on Earth. Gods battle Alien invaders. Vampires openly run entire cities. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
** No really. Think ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' plus ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' condensed to a single planet. That's the level of over-the-top we're talking about, here.
** The ''Phase World and the Three Galaxies'' sub-setting of the game takes this trope all the way. You have science-based interstellar civilizations (the Consortium of Civilized Worlds) alongside magic-based ones (the United Worlds of Warlock). Technology, magic, psionics and super powers all co-exist in a StandardSciFiSetting.... which is currently undergoing a Demonic Invasion.
* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' features groups that use science and groups that use magic.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. It takes place in a (far) future SpaceOpera setting, has [[CoolStarships spaceships]], [[EnergyWeapon lasers]], extraterrestrials, PsychicPowers, HumongousMecha and an army of genetically-engineered SuperSoldier [[SpaceMarine Space Marines]]. Did we mention that the said spaceships travel through [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace hell]], said lasers are [[HolyHandGrenade blessed by the Emperor]], the extraterrestrials are basically your standard fantasy races [[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE]], the individuals who use PsychicPowers are referred to as witches and sorcerers, the HumongousMecha are LostTechnology worshiped by the resident CargoCult and the Space Marines are fanatical knights? Add to that the fact that a huge chunk of technology in the setting has a medieval Gothic aesthetic to it.
* Monte Cook's upcoming ''TabletopGame/{{Numenera}}'' is inspired by works like Gene Wolfe's ''Book of the New Sun'', and is set in a post-apocalyptic Earth one billion years into our future. The setting, called by its inhabitants the Ninth World, mixes a society with medieval technology with technological artifacts left behind by the previous civilizations that have risen and fallen over the previous billion years. While Monte has said that he is grounding the game firmly in science (or at least science fiction), he has cited [[ClarkesThirdLaw Clarke's Third Law]] to explain the presence of things that would otherwise be at home in a fantasy setting such as "wizards" (Nanos, whose powers are derived from cybernetic implants, extradimensional aliens, or other non-supernatural sources), "gods" (alien entities or ancient AIs), and floating cities (kept aloft by some sort of anti-gravity or repulsor tech).
* ''TabletopGame/DragonMech''. The setting was simple StandardFantasySetting. Now, there are also [[AlienInvasion alien invaders from the moon]] and SteamPunk HumongousMecha that developed to fight them.
* ''TabletopGame/FadingSuns'' throws out any distinction between science fiction and fantasy, though the closer the narration veers toward omniscient, the more likely something is to sound like sci-fi. In general, it's a FeudalFuture where sci-fi stuff has taken on mystical and fantasy elements. Psis aren't just trained minds, they're sorcerers (and bear occult markings...which may just be genetic mutation); the family's ancestral sword is a wireblade; cyborgs have replaced part of their body with occult magic, and the sacred jumpgates represent the light of the Pancreator. And then you get into stuff such as theurgy and Antinomy, which calls upon what appears to be the divine or demonic forces respectively...but it [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane might also be]] SufficientlyAdvancedAliens, or just another expression of humanity's potential.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Nearly every ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' has had this. Besides the series standard magic and SummonMagic:
** [[OlderThanTheyThink Going all the way back to the beginning]], ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' was mostly fantasy, with added bits of LostTechnology showing up later in the game, largely thanks to the Lufenians.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' had a spacecraft capable of going to the moon and a HumongousMecha, although it's otherwise fantasy in all respects.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' had steampunk-esque technology and Edgar's tools, which included a chainsaw and drill. The [[SandIsWater sand-diving]] Castle Figaro was treated as using science rather than magic, although it's really not physically possible.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' had near-modern cities complete with television, guns, genetic engineering (sort of), electricity, and power plants. However, those power plants ran on the literal lifeblood of the planet, which also produced magic crystals that could teach you magic.
*** The spinoff game ''VideoGame/DirgeOfCerberus'' and the ''[[Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren Advent Children]]'' film feature cell phones more prominently, though they do exist in the game, referred to as a "PHS."
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' has SummonMagic, magical TimeTravel, schools that convert into ancient moving fortresses, and a ship that got lost in space while launching an evil sorceress into a space prison. It also has Esthar, a CrystalSpiresAndTogas-like futuristic country.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' is mostly fantasy, but includes quite a lot of {{Steampunk}} technology and [[spoiler: a [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Sufficiently Advanced]] {{Magitek}} alien race to which both the protagonist and the BigBad belong]].
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' has machina, a slightly steampunk-esque technology that can make guns, grenades, mecha, and blitzball stadiums. On the other hand, there's an EldritchAbomination running around killing everyone and the [[OurSoulsAreDifferent pyreflies]] that make up a person can reform into monsters after their death.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' has guns and more science fiction like airships than previous titles, but the airships are powered by magical [[AppliedPhlebotinum phlebotinum]]. And all the other magical elements.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' appears to be ScienceFiction at first, with guns, more "realistic" airships, mecha, and genetic engineering. But most, if not all, of the tech is powered by fal'cie, magical beings. Who can also grant magical powers to chosen humans, [[BlessedWithSuck although it sucks to be chosen this way for the human]].
* Averted with the first two ''Franchise/{{Fable}}'' games which were were straight fantasy. ''VideoGame/FableIII'' however was in the industrial revolution, while the magic and swords were kept, the two [=DLCs=] Understone and Traitor's Keep featured steampunk robots with latter even including a potion to turn your dog into a robot.
* ''VideoGame/{{Journey}}''. Besides the beautiful sand that submerged the world, glyphs, magical cloth, and the impaired buildings, technology is uncommon at most. You fly using the energy bundled in your scarf, and although there exists an ancient language you can't seem to talk at all, even the game hardly shows any text beside from the logo and closing credits. Singing near large pieces of cloth can release "cloth creatures" from the machines' remnants. Glyphs and confluences teach you the history of a civilization started by your ancestors. The reason why the game [[spoiler: takes place AfterTheEnd is the machines powered by energy from red banners destroyed the world in a war against the White Robes]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}}'' routinely weaves in and out of this, especially in terms of some of the game's bosses, as some are prophecized ancient terrors, while others are elemental beings, like dragons ''made of'' fire, or lions made of sand. Supernatural elements routinely come into play as well, especially in the MSX games.
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' tends to mix the two so thoroughly that it can make one dizzy. The prologue starts with two warring [[OurTitansAreDifferent titans]] whose dead bodies make up the entire world, and then it transitions to advanced HumanAliens (Homs) fighting a war against relentless killer robots. The robots can only be stopped by a [[CoolSword legendary ancient sword called the Monado]], which turns out to be equipped with a LaserBlade. Then the Monado starts granting the protagonist visions of the future, but that turns out to have a reasonable scientific explanation. Later on the team finds the High Entia, who are a race capable of manipulating [[MagicByAnyOtherName ether]], yet that didn't stop them from advancing their technology to great levels. It all continues to scalate from there.
* ''VideoGame/{{Albion}}'', a game where a spaceship in the future lands on a world with magic instead of technology. A lot of the time is spent in primarily fantastic or scifistic settings, but they eventually mix, and both elements are present at least a little most of the time.
* ''VideoGame/{{Crystalis}}'', a ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]]''-esque top-down action-adventure game for the NES, takes place in a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic future]] where human civilization has regressed to medieval times and embraced magic over technology. The game's BigBad has taken control of a floating tower and is threatening the world with powerful magic and LostTechnology.
* ''[[VideoGame/{{Sacred}} Sacred 2]]'' is a good example, although the barrier between {{Magitek}} and actual technology is difficult to define. You have artificial beings (both cibernetic and organic), lasers, lightsabers, force fields, strange energies and ''Franchise/ResidentEvil''-esque mutant zombies in a HighFantasy premise.
* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'': An apocalyptic future with destroyed [[DomedHometown domed cities]] caused by a CosmicHorror, combined with a medieval SwordAndSorcery setting in the past. And it's all connected by TimeTravel.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'': While the series is fundamentally fantastic, there's still a fair bit of science going on in the sidelines. Most of it caused by the kappa, who are an entire race of {{mad scientist}}s, but neither of the attempts at nuclear fusion involved them at all.
* The ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series has magic, souls ("hearts"), fantastic creatures, and a prophecy involving a hero of destiny... alongside spaceships armed with lasers, {{Mad Scientist}}s, advanced robots, and {{Magical Computer}}s including an InsideAComputerSystem level. The spaceships with lasers are firmly on the magic side of it. They are made from size-changing [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin gummi blocks]] that broke off of the sky. On your second visit to the InsideAComputerSystem world you have to bring a computer program modified by [[Disney/TheSwordInTheStone Merlin's magic]] to ''Film/{{TRON}}'' so that he can do battle with the MCP.
* The ''VideoGame/MightAndMagic'' series (which includes the first four ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic'' games) takes place in fantasy worlds but with SF-elements (mostly involving LostTechnology.) Not many people who haven't played ''[=M&M6=]'' knows that the Kreegan/Inferno town of ''Heroes 3'' is in fact populated not by demons but by hive-minded aliens (except for when the Inferno town is used to represent the ''non''-Kreegan demons that are also around in the setting). For those that only know the ''[=HoM&M=]'' series: one of the third game's expansion packs was supposed to add a cybernetic army but they changed their mind after receiving [[FanDumb threats of boycotting the series and death threats from 'fans' angry at the intrusion of science fiction into their fantasy setting]].
** The greatest example of just how science fantasy the series was may be that for the first five games, the BigBad and the BigGood were magic-using robots travelling around in spaceships and infiltrating societies with castles, wizards and elves living on worlds created by [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens really advanced]] {{Magitek}}.
* Similarly, the primarily high fantasy ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' and ''{{Heretic}}''[=/=]''VideoGame/{{Hexen}}'' series briefly skirted with SF on a number of occasions, resulting in the occasional raygun, spaceship, time machine, or [[spoiler:demonic]] supercomputer.
* The ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' series of games, set in a future where a new, unlimited source of power has been discovered... called "Magic." Humanoid robots and artificially created killing machines coexist with people who can summon the power of the elements and fight with melee weapons (admittedly, melee weapons which can spit fire and lightning).
* The Amiga classic ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheBeast'' is set in a Roger Dean-inspired fantasy world called Karamoon, which features sword-wielding orcs, medieval architecture, goblins, morningstars, mechanical claws, jetpacks, and (in the third game) robots.
* For a game-series with a fundamentally magic premise (books that act as portals, scribed in an ancient arcane language), the ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'' games incorporate an awful lot of sci-fi trappings: transport pods, electronic viewers, spaceships, submarines, giant mechanical engines, alien ecologies, orbital observatories, etc.
* Alongside it's many [[StandardFantasySetting standard fantasy elements]] ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' also feature spaceships used by gods; time traveling, terminatorish robots with laser weapons; and astronauts (the mananauts and Sunbirds of Alinor), and in extension: more spaceships. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
** Also, the realms of Aeterius and Oblivion were originally presented as simply this world's equivalent of Heaven and Hell. Then ''The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard'' featured an observatory where the realms of Oblivion appeared as planets orbiting Nirn (the mortal world) and the gods as even more distant planets at the edge of a solar system. So, the Oblivion Gates? Those may or may not be [[StarGate stargates]] in disguise.
** Becomes a bit more complicated when you learn that the planets (and moons) are actually the bodies of dead gods, the sun and probably stars are holes in reality caused by fleeing gods, and that the Dwemer/dwarves were a race of militant atheists who accidentally unexisted themselves trying ''to gain godhood''. Science is literally magic.
*** Or not. The one factor that really distinguishes TES lore from in-universe texts in other RPG settings is that it is specifically stated (and shown a few times) to be unreliable - things can be either misinterpreted, exaggerated or just plain wrong, and racial/social biases are also part of the lore design (e.g. a Khajit creation myth might be true or just a myth in itself, but when it's retold in a book by an Imperial historian, it's a given that there's misrepresentation/wrong translation and so on present). This basically reflects our real world's inherent uncertainty mythologies and religious beliefs. Hence, planets in TES ''might'' really be the bodies of dead gods, but they might also be just that - planets. Same with everything else.
* ''The Unholy War'' was a strategy game that took this to an extreme, with an army of fantasy creatures fighting an army of science fiction characters.
* In the ''VideoGame/TheLongestJourney'' series, magic and technology once coexisted. Past misues of the two brought the PowersThatBe to separate the two into Stark (technology, "our" world) and Arcadia (magic/medieval world). Attempts to alter this balance are what drives the plot.
* The ''Franchise/StarOcean'' series typically takes characters from a science fiction setting, and then plunges them deep into fantasy, while ever hinting at science fiction overtones throughout the stories.
** Special mention goes to ''VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime'', by having Fayt and Cliff, who're members of the Pangalactic Federation, crash land on Elicoor II, a planet who's inhabitants are a [[MedievalStasis type-3 civilization.]] Fayt and Cliff go to great lengths to conceal the true nature of their identities to avoid unnecessary trouble, leading to predictable results. [[spoiler: Except for the part where they learn that their universe, and everything in it, is one big virtual game!]]
* Starting around the sixth game in the series, the ''VideoGame/{{Wizardry}}'' games dove head-first into combining fantasy and sci-fi, where spells, magical creatures, and arcane artifacts are found hand-in-hand with spacefaring aliens, starships, and advanced energy weapons.
** ''Wizardry VII'' was the first of the series to embrace this trope-while the party is firmly grounded in fantasy, and the world seems to be with the full range of usual fantasy creatures and items, there's also the fact that the party arrived on the world by a starship, the BigBad has a robotic army, two more alien races are engaged in a power struggle over the planet from their landing zones, and one of the native races travels around in rocket-powered aircraft.
** ''Wizardry 8'' takes this to an even more extreme bent, where powerful magic and advanced technology happily coexist-you'll see sophisticated artificial intelligences talking happily with wizards, flamethrowers and rocket launchers wielded by elves, and an alien airbase guarded by potent technological and magical defenses.
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' takes place in a ConstructedWorld full of magical creatures, [[PatchworkMap impossible geography]], and polytheistic gods… and computers and electric power plants and psychic powers and spaceships.
* ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' 'verse's technology is roughly at pre-industrial level, where guns are getting common, but swords and bows are still viable. However, the range of technology available is quite large. [[RockBeatsLaser Rock axes]] can down [[{{Magitek}} demonic]] HumongousMecha, and {{Death Ray}}s can be used against ancient evil gods. And the dimension-hopping giants that ride around in spaceships.
* ''VideoGame/SepterraCore'' wandered back and forth between the two, blending such elements as SteamPunk technology, magic fueled by the planet itself, genetic engineering and a pantheon of gods.
* The ''[[VideoGame/ArTonelicoMelodyOfElemia Ar tonelico]]'' series features girls who [[MagicMusic control magical powers with their songs]] and goddesses who control the giant towers that humanity has been forced to live in after a disaster destroyed the world's land. The [[AllThereInTheManual backstory of the series]] reveals that this disaster was caused by the technology of a highly advanced civilization. The towers themselves were built by these civilizations. The villain in the first game invades the tower's systems with viruses that can take physical form and possess many of the tower's robot guardians. The magic wielding girls themselves are actually an [[ArtificialHuman artificial race]] designed to use magical powers based on the intricate principles of "wave science."
* ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' features an invasion by demons from hell ... thwarted by a ''space marine'' on ''UsefulNotes/{{Mars}}'' with a ''plasma rifle.''
** Demons with cybernetic implants. One of them is called Cyberdemon.
* The ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' universe also combines elements of both science-fiction (cyborgs, advanced weaponry, parallel dimensions, spaceships) and fantasy (magic, dragons, gods, demons).
* ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'' is a mixture of more specific genres: HighFantasy and SteamPunk. The overarching story is fantasy epic, set in a more dystopian land that includes race and class conflict and the growing pains of an industrializing society as themes. Magic vs. technology is less a war than an ideological clash that can at least find common ground in its goals if not its practical methods.
* ''VideoGame/{{Metro 2033}}'' takes place in a fairly standard GrimDark version of AfterTheEnd, with hostile mutants, scattered human survivors, and a climax that involves using pre-cataclysmic weapons. There are also enough murderous ghosts for one of the characters to have a theory on them (Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory were ''also'' atomized), including a bona fide AfterlifeExpress.
** The [[VideoGame/MetroLastLight sequel]] takes this even further at one point, actually throwing a player into a hellish supernatural dimension [[spoiler: where one of the game's big moral choices takes place]]. Also features a legitimately haunted airplane wreck.
* ''VideoGame/CaveStory'' takes place on a FloatingContinent, which is inhabited by fantastic creatures such as [[FunnyAnimal bunny-shaped Mimigas]], ([[NonHumanUndead undead]]) [[SandIsWater sand-dwelling crocodiles]] or humanoid cockroaches, ruled over by an old witch who's responsible for an abomination that keeps the island afloat from inside a chamber protected with terminals and water control. There's also an incubator corridor that keeps dragon eggs and RidiculouslyHumanRobots.
* The ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' meta-series is made of Science Fantasy. The original novels that started it all presented summoning spells written in computer code so that computers could conjure demons - and those demons able to inhabit the computers into which they were summoned. Some games are more or less so than others - ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI'', ''[[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiII II]]'', and ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'' are steeped in this genre, as are the ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'' games and the first two ''VideoGame/DevilSummoner'' games (and parts of the ''Raidou Kuzunoha'' ones flirt with it). ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' are much more so than ''2'' or ''4''. Meanwhile, ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' is, well... just look at the name.
* ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'' IS this trope with a [[HinduMythology Hindu]] and [[UsefulNotes/{{Buddhism}} Buddhist]] twist.
* ''VideoGame/PhantasyStar'', though as the series progressed, it more thoroughly embraced the sci-fi side of things.
* ''VideoGame/CosmicFantasy''.
* The ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' franchise in general. The series is a big fan of robots, machinery, and at one point artificial life-form creation, but it also contains many supernatural elements like the Chaos Emeralds and gods.
* The ''[[Franchise/{{Kirby}} Kirby]]'' series is about a [[WaddlingHead round pink space alien]] living on a [[WorldShapes Star]] shaped [[PlanetaryRomance planet]]. The setting features castles, knights, [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] and spaceships [[LovecraftLite prominently]] and ''Kirby Super Star'', ''Kirby 64'' and ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'' feature space travel as a major plot point. ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'' is even about repairing a [[WizardsFromOuterSpace Space Wizard's]] ship so you can go to his homeworld and fight a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent four headed dragon]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Geneforge}}'' is another examples of this. The Shapers are a sect of wizards who can literally create life, but the methodology is strongly implied to be at its heart pure sci-fi. Most of its machinery is explained as being carefully designed semi-living creatures that, for example, shift to open a door when someone approaches, or release a cloud of spores that signals other creations to, say, not explode. You've even got General Alwan, who's kept alive by what is basically intravenous magic.
* ''VideoGame/SaGa2'' is a fantasy game with sci-fi elements. It's centered around gods and the ancient stones called MAGI that give them power, but heroes and enemies include robots as well as magical creatures and humans. Weapon stores sell heavy assault guns alongside swords and spellbooks.
** In ''VideoGame/SaGa3'', the heroes fight against evil gods to recover the missing parts of their time machine.
* The ''VideoGame/GuildWars'' series flirts with this. It's hinted that the Mists are actually something akin to {{Hyperspace}} and the humans and Forgotten are confirmed to have been brought to Tyria from another planet by the gods (who may or may not be SufficientlyAdvancedAliens). The charr and asura races, on the other hand, are racing headlong into this trope from the other direction - the asura have {{magitek}} with a definite sci-fi feel, while the charr are in the midst of an industrial revolution and continuing to advance at a breakneck pace.
* inXile's upcoming ''VideoGame/TormentTidesOfNumenera'' is a spiritual sequal to ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'', and is based on Monte Cook's ''Numenera'' tabletop game (mentioned above). The far-future post-apocolyptic setting uses sufficiently advanced science and technological artifacts left by the previous civilizations that have risen and fallen on the Earth over a billion years to explain traditional fantasy tropes.
* ''VideoGame/{{Perimeter}}'' has {{Physical God}}s with Sufficiently Advanced Technology that reside in floating cities. You lead super-advanced, ShapeShifting robotic soldiers fighting demons on alien worlds. FasterThanLightTravel is achieved by sending things through the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noosphere noosphere]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}'' definitely belongs in this genre, with wizards, magic, souls ripping from the bodies of deceased enemies, and necromancers existing in a universe teeming with time-travelling robots, aliens, and spaceships. [[WordofGod Bungie]] has even described the game as being "mythic science fiction".
* ''VideoGame/{{World of Warcraft}}'' Where you can have a mage that can teleport, cast spells, ride a variety of mounts on the ground, from a normal horse, to a demonic unicorn, to a motorcycle on the ground and anything from dragons, to flying carpets, to a rocket in the air. Druids who can turn themselves into a bird. Heck, engineering is a profession, where you can make your clothing produce rockets and bombs if you want to.
* ''VideoGame/WildStar'' is this and a SpaceWestern. Instead of wands, the wizards use dual mag pistols and are called Spellslingers. They also have nuclear-powered greatswords, among other things.
* ''VideoGame/LostOdyssey'' is set during an era called the "Magic-Industrial Revolution". It has swords and sorcery alongside muskets and tanks, idyllic villages with [[HauntedHouse haunted houses]] near dirty steel and concrete cities and mortals and immortals [[spoiler: the latter from another world]] fighting alongside, and against one another. The opening sequence alone features a battle between armored knights and barbarian warriors utilizing very [[DungeonPunk steam-punkish]] weapons (one of the most interesting being a machine that resurrects dead soldiers, powered by [[MagicalIncantation magical chanting]]). Then there's Grandstaff, which is described as a "MagicStaff". It's actually an enormous mechanical TOWER that channels magic. The entire game is one massive [[FantasyKitchenSink kitchen]] [[SciFiKitchenSink sink]].

[[/folder]]

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' is {{steampunk}} combined with fantasy. Most of the weird stuff can be explained by technology, but not everything. The magic includes stuff like the river Dyne (which is an apparently natural spring the waters of which make the drinker a mad genius, though in most cases it's instantly lethal), Geisterdamen (ghost-like beings), Frankenstein-esque reanimated corpses, Jaegermonsters (non-human beings with superhuman strength and [[LongLived lifespans]] who are former humans who drank the [[SuperSerum "Jaegerdraught"]]), multiple cases of BrainUploading, the [[GeniusLoci castle Heterodyne's]] seemingly telekinetic ability to move chunks of itself...
* ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'': There are robots and other advanced tech in the Court, while the Gillitie Wood is full of magic-users (including PhysicalGod Coyote). Transformation to/from forest creatures is an accepted part of the universe, and the Court has students and teachers skilled in "etheric sciences".
* ''QuentynQuinnSpaceRanger'' is a sequel to ''TalesOfTheQuestor'' that takes place 700 years later in the interstellar age. At that point most Racconnans rely on [[{{Magitek}} technology]] for most of their Lux use.
* ''TheDragonDoctors'' make heavy use of magic, but always use it rationally and scientifically (their leader even calls herself a "Magical Scientist"). LegoGenetics are referenced at one point as being only possible with the use of magic to treat traits as conceptual objects.
* ''WebComic/MegaTokyo'' has both light fantasy elements (mostly {{MagicalGirl}}s) and soft sci-fi (stuff related to the TPCD mostly). A DarkMagicalGirl is best friends with a RobotGirl and said DMG used to control people's emotions through an MMORPG.
* Thanks to its WorldOfWeirdness and FantasyKitchenSink setting, ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' is filled with this trope. Santa Claus is infected with alien DNA. Witches and [[TalkingAnimal Talking Animals]] lead teams of SpacePirates. A ray gun is used to blast a demon back in time. A centuries old sorcerer is President of the United States ''[[foldercontrol]]

* ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' has both magic and futuristic technology, and combinations of the two.
* The ''Crushed'' subseries of ''{{Supermegatopia}}'' is technically [[spoiler: the result of a space explorer using SufficientlyAdvancedTechnology to make]] a medieval fantasy world. This later gets ruined by [[spoiler: the Ragnaracoon]], and mixed into an unapologetic mishmash of high technology and high fantasy called Meshworld.
* ''Webcomic/BrokenSpace'' ([[http://brokenspacecomic.com site]]) features aliens, demons, clockwork, [[SteamPunk steam-power]], magicians, guns, swords, strange Magitek weapons, and divinely powered starships.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' has genetically altered super-mutant assassins, aliens, mad scientists and many magic users, several of whom are main characters. Oh yeah, and one of the magic users can create a fairy version of herself, and Tedd's been hacking a {{Magitek}} [[GenderBender transformation ray gun]] since 2002.
* ''Webcomic/LastRes0rt'' is set several thousand years into the future, contains nanotechnology, flying robots, and a galactic society... and also contains lots of creatures that run off of soul-based magic, including vampires, djinn, and zombies. [[FurryComic Also, furries.]] It's labeled {{Cyberpunk}} -- but it's about as Cyberpunk as, say, TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' revolves around a very advanced game that [[TheGamePlaysYou Plays You]], is set in a world in which everyone has their own videogame-esque abstract inventory systems, and features a ''lot'' of robots and cyborgs, but it also plays around heavily with fantasy tropes and themes such as princes and princesses, knights, dragons, quests, and magic.
* ''Webcomic/TheMansionOfE'' features robots along with magic.
* ''Webcomic/{{Zap}}'' is mostly [[{{Mohs Scale of Science Fiction Hardness}} soft science fiction]], with [[PsychicPowers psychics]], robots, {{cat girl}}s, [[FasterThanLightTravel FTL]], and other scifi sundries. However, the aliens with ElementalPowers cement it in this category.
* ''Webcomic/{{Iothera}}'' is a science fantasy with a lot of {{Magitek}}.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/MattNDusty'' is this mixed with Main/WorldOfWeirdness and Main/LawOfConservationOfNormality, and is a complete straight-up comedy. Robots are voiced by the text-to-speech function in VideoGame/MoonbaseAlpha, there's a giant pink dragon that bakes cookies, the two titular characters survive the apocalypse and prevent it with a Stargate, Playstations and Xboxes have apparantly been in a Main/RobotWar for centuries, and to top everything else off, Interdimensional Jack Benny as Father Time.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''Blog/LimyaaelsFantasyRants'' has tips for writing [[http://limyaael.livejournal.com/577404.html science fiction/fantasy hybrids]].
* Animated UrbanFantasy web series ''WebAnimation/BrokenSaints'' uses a lot of the technology from (probably) TwentyMinutesInTheFuture, and just labeled "state-of-the-art" in-story. However, it also includes [[TheEmpath Shandala's]] powers of healing and... [[BewareTheNiceOnes not-so-healing...]], and Kamimura's ability to SoulJar his pupil, holding a [[SoulFragment fragment]] of said pupil's consciousness within his own mind. While the first ability [[spoiler: is revealed to be part of her genetic design]] (very sci-fi), they are both firmly in the fantasy realm.
* While most of ''Literature/ChaosFighters'' novels are fantasy with minor science fiction elements inserted in the fighting scenes, ''Chaos Fighters II'' and ''Chaos Fighters: Chemical Warriors'' are science fiction with significant fantasy style battles.
* ''TechInfantry'' is like a mish-mash between the ''TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness'' and ''Franchise/StarshipTroopers''. The titular "Tech Infantry" are an army of Mages and Werewolves in PoweredArmor.
* ''Podcast/MetamorCity'' is a LayeredMetropolis inhabited by humans [[PettingZooPeople transformed]] [[AgeRegression by a]] [[SexShifter regional]] [[MetamorKeep curse]], elves, [[OurOrcsAreDifferent lutins]], demons, celestials, vampires, mages both licensed and unlicensed, and psionics. They've also got FlyingCars and several varieties of {{Cyberpunk}} technology.
* ''Podcast/TheMinisterOfChance'' is a borderline ''Series/DoctorWho'' spinoff but with more of a fantasy slant.
* The best explanation for the genre of [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Literature/Prolecto Prolecto]]. It has angels and demons who make Chain Katars, versus guys in powered armor, and the main enemy is a demonic nanomachine entity.
* While ''Literature/ChronoHustle'' starts out as a sci-fi series, it starts including fantasy elements as early as the 4th story, in which a powerful magic user is introduced, although it is mentioned by some characters that she is just a powerful psychic. In the following story though, it is confirmed by characters with more information that she is an actual magic user. And then the 7th story introduces Greek Gods.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse'' in its various incarnations always includes high technology and powerful magic.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats'' has space travel, futuristic vehicles and the like, but also features a magic sword used by the hero and an undead SorcerousOverlord as the main villain.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' has laser weapons, robots, biotechnology along with pseudo-gods, fairies and ghosts (Oberon's children) as well as various other mythological creatures.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' had a MagicVersusScience contest between Dr. Venture and Dr. Orpheus (a parody of Dr. Strange), reaching its climax as Orpheus produces fire from his hands. Dr. Venture's scientific one-up? A lighter.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has goblins, futuristic robots, princesses, wizards, hologram projectors, magic, and mini-anti-gravity chambers. All in a post-apocalyptic Earth.
* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' focuses mostly on magic since the main characters are fairies with all sorts of magic powers such as [[PlayingWithFire fire]], [[GreenThumb natue]], or [[LightEmUp light]]. Fairies, witches, and wizards dominate the series. The Magic Dimension is also shown to have advanced technology such as laser guns, inter-planetary spaceships, advanced holograms, inter-dimensional phones, and the like that don't seem to rely on magic at all. Tecna is the fairy of technology, showing that magic and technology can be used together.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003'' you got 4 mutant humanoid turtles who do ninjitsu, and battle ninjas, robots, aliens, and inter-dimensional creatures to boot.
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' franchise has aliens, advanced tech, lovecraftesque {{Eldritch Abomination}}s and magicians from an alternate dimension, as well as a species of ''aliens made of magical energy''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wizards}}'' features a SchizoTech Post-Apocalyptic world that resembles a StandardFantasySetting, in which magic-using elves and fairies wage a war against gun wielding robots, mutants, and Nazis.
* ''Franchise/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' uses an interesting take on this trope. The [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender the first series]] was very much set in a {{Fantasy}} world, with only a few SteamPunk aspects introduced towards the end. However, by the time of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' (70 years after ''Last Airbender'') technology has advanced considerably, with things like cars, airships, airplanes and even [[spoiler:HumongousMecha]] becoming more and more commonplace (especially by the time of Book 4). Essentially, ''Avatar'' shows what happens when a {{Fantasy}} setting breaks its MedivalStasis.

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', the setting is vaguely Polynesian at face value, everyone is a [[AmbiguousRobot mostly machine cyborg]], they all live inside a [[spoiler:giant robot]] made of AppliedPhlebotinum. They sport some pretty sweet tech, but the most common way for the [[{{Hobbits}} powerless Matoran]] to defend themselves are with [[MundaneMadeAwesome frisbees that can freeze, shrink, or teleport whatever they touch]], and the main heroes, Toa, [[ElementalPowers control the elements]] with no explanation other than "elemental energy" and wear [[CoolMask magic masks]] that have an ever growing list of options.
** Energized Protodermis, the universe's most powerful substance that can either transform or destroy whatever it touches. What you get is based on [[BecauseDestinySaysSo destiny.]] Oh, and it's sentient.
** The [[BigBad Makuta]], a race designed to be genetic engineers, do so by ''mixing potions in a cauldron''.
*** The origin of the Makuta. They come from a pool of slime containing their unborn, bodiless spirits -- sounds fantasy enough, right? But those "spirits" are really preprogrammed artificial intelligence, and the liquid is just a strange data storage device.
* Disneyland
* The fictonal {{MMORPG}} in which ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' happens has TheMagicVersusTechnologyWar as a setting. The magic side is your classic MedievalEuropeanFantasy setting with some informed SteamPunk elements while the technology side's strongholds could get the setting mistaken for ScienceFiction. The fact is best shown in the novels and the ''Literature/{{Neogicia}}'' SpinOff, while the technology elements are somewhat DemotedToExtra in the webseries and almost absent in the comic.
