* In the Literature/AnitaBlakeVampireHunter Series, author Laurell K. Hamilton blends the literary genres of paranormal, detective, psychological thriller and romance. The series protagonist, Anita Blake is described as an abstinent, five-foot-nothing, gunslinging, racially conflicted tomboy. By profession, she animates corpses. An obscene pattern of scars reminds the reader of her additionally exciting work, as a federally recognized vampire executioner. She carries a B.A. emphasising supernatural studies, and often notes its worthlessness. This learned individual maintains a side job, on retainer for the Regional Preternatural Investigation Team (RPIT) as their freelance investigator. As an expert in cryptozoology, she was deputized by said local authorities; she serves as analyst for crime scenes. Finally, she's a necromancer, one fearful of acknowledging relevant Vudun involvement.
** Throughout the novels, this charmingly sarcastic woman warrants the advances of (seemingly) every male character (reminiscent of the Twilight book series); her threats of violence make her all the more cheeky.
** Through a guise of a tough-as-nails persona, she is a highly empathic and vulnerable individual. These characteristics are unveiled in her many inner monologues, and attested to by her prized "comfort animal" collection.
** To appease a vampiric curse and status of leadership (over various "were" communities), she relents to gratuitous love affairs, and a generally polyamouric relationship status. Eventually, after enough bespelling and political obligation, she claims the title of "were" everything (wolf, leopard, tiger, lion, hyena, and pard queen); she also grants additional clans protection.
** Anita is trapped in a romantic triumvirate, between a werewolf and an obnoxious centuries-old vampire. With the others, she assumes the role of "succubus," due to mystical sexual consequence.
* In {{Narcissus in Chains}}, Laurell K. Hamilton's {{Anita Blake Vampire Hunter}} Series' tenth installment, details protagonist Anita's encounter with Orlando King, former lycanthrope hunter. After Anita contracts various strains of "were" (wolf, hyena, snake, lion, and leopard), Orlando lusts over her, wishing to consort, attracted to comparable chimeria-ism. As persistent shifting resulted in the development of unmanageable Dissociative Identity Disorder, Orlando turns torturous.
* In the 11th book of ''Literature/TheSookieStackhouseMysteries'', Sookie and Eric visit a [[VampiresOwnNightClubs vampire-owned]] night club that was bondage/Elvis/whore-house themed.
* In the Fourth Book of the Wizard of Oz series, ''Dorothy and The Wizard in Oz'', on the way to the surface of Oz, they encounter a village where everyone is invisible. Why are they invisible? To avoid being seen by the ''invisible bears''!
* ''Literature/{{Vampirates}}'', a book series about [[SelfExplanatory you-guessed-it]].
* ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'' has the Panserbjørne, the Guardians of the Svalbard archipelago, a race of armor-clad warrior polar bears (in fact, "panserbjørne" is Danish for "armored bears"). As a matter of fact, the author gleefully tells us that This Is The Coolest Thing Ever.
* ''Literature/TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea''. Pirates, a nuclear SteamPunk submarine, giant underwater monsters, and a mad scientist.
* OlderThanTelevision: ''Literature/PeterPan'' is an early version of this: flying immortal juvenile delinquents fight {{pirate}}s, Indians, and demonic crocodiles in a bizarre fantasy land inhabited by mermaids and fairies.
** The Disney animated adaptation has said juvenile delinquents wear full-body animal skins, which just pushes the awesomeness past the red line.
** In the 1991 Steven Spielberg spinoff ''Film/{{Hook}}'', those same delinquents are now multiracial punk skateboarders who fire catapults full of eggs.
* ''ThePrincess99'' has an alien punk rocker from the future fighting zombies, elves, and wizards in a mixed up ClockPunk fantasy setting that's based on 1920s New Orleans...but with wizards!
* Certain ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' stories.
** ''Monstrous Regiment'' in which a SweetPollyOliver joins a military regiment along with a troll, a vampire, [[SchoolgirlLesbians two women who happen to be in love]] - one of them is a pyromaniac and the other is perpetually angry, a religious fanatic [[spoiler:who bears a strong resemblance to Joan of Arc]], a [[SergeantRock sergeant]] and [[TheIgor an Igor]] and they all fight in a war in the name of a god [[spoiler:who is dead, and a dead mortal who is in the process of ascending to godhood]]. And it turns out the entire regiment is an [[spoiler:AmazonBrigade]] and didn't know it.
** ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'' is a book about witches fighting vampires, with the help of ViolentGlaswegian [[TheSmurfs Smurfs]], a phoenix, and [[ChurchMilitant a fighting priest]]. Also, TheVirus [[spoiler: is inverted: "I ain't been vampired. You've been Weatherwaxed."]]
** ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}'' is a book where a CowboyCop, a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]], a man who's [[KingIncognito secretly a king]], a [[OurTrollsAreDifferent troll]] and a [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies zombie]] team up with Bedouin to stop a war in a plot borrowed from LawrenceOfArabia, but with more [[TheBeautifulGame football]]. Meanwhile, two TooDumbToFool other cops, a MagnificentBastard tyrant and an expy of LeonardoDaVinci are on a secret mission in a submarine. Oh, and there's [[Creator/HPLovecraft a city built by squid.]]
* In ''Literature/{{Dune}}'', there are a few different characters with special abilities. There are the Navigators, who can see in four dimensions. There are Mentats, essentially human computers. There are also the Bene Gesserits, magical witches that have the commanding Voice. And then there's Paul Atreides, the Kwisatz Haderach. This Troper's nickname for him is Paul "multiclasses-in-everything" Atreides, because he is essentially ALL OF THESE! The only person worse than him is his son, who even jumps species to get the extra skills he didn't already inherit from his father.
* T.C Rypel's Deathwind Trilogy has the main protagonist Gonji Sabatake who is a Samurai Viking, born when a shipwrecked Norse woman ends up in medieval Japan.
* Sean Cullen's ''Hamish X'' series is about a [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot robot]] [[ParentalAbandonment orphan]] with gold eyes who wants to BecomeARealBoy and [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters Turn Against His Masters]]. It contains a [[ZeppelinsFromAnotherWorld zeppelin]], [[InherentlyFunnyWords cheese]], cheese pirates, a LostWorld that is BeneathTheEarth in Switzerland and populated entirely by orphans, ninja orphans, a HiveMind of robot raccoons named George, [[BedouinRescueService Bedouins]], a mammoth, [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys giant snow monkeys]], and an evil [[TheVirus assimilating]] robot [[TheMenInBlack MIB]] from the UncannyValley with [[FluffyTheTerrible candy-related names]]. And yet, when a minor character is seen reading a comic called ''Vampire Cat Robot'', the narrator makes fun of him for it.
* In Thomas Pynchon's ''Mason & Dixon'', a French chef named Armand Allegre is pursued by an [[ImplacableMan Implacable]], {{Invisible}}, [[ClingyJealousGirl Clingy, Jealous]], [[KillerRabbit Killer]] [[PunkPunk ClockPunk]] robot [[MorallyAmbiguousDucktorate duck]][[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes with a speech impediment]] [[RoadApples and a fully functional digestive system]] [[DoAndroidsDream who wants him to find her]] [[OppositeSexClone Currently Genderless Beta-Copy]] or else she will take {{Revenge}} for all the ducks he has cooked.
** There's also the overarching story about a depressed widower astronomer and a womanizing, land-surveying Quaker studying the orbit of Venus while snarking all over Dutch people and then measuring borders [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries IN AMERICA]] while discussing dragons. And that bit is true. Less true are the [[FunnyAnimal talking dog]] who knows everything, the Chinese fung shui master who is afraid of turning into a Spaniard, the [[ChurchMilitant rabbi secret agents]] trying to track down rogue golems, golems built by Jesus, the Swedish conspiracy, the Spanish Inquisition's involvement, the ghost, and some witches. And it's all written in AntiquatedLinguistics.
* Another Pynchon novel, ''Vineland'', involves hippies, TheMafia, TheMenInBlack, ninjas, and a possible ''{{kaiju}}'' attack.
* Peter F. Hamilton's Night's Dawn trilogy is the story of humans fighting back againstan invasion by dead souls possessing the living to escape a horrible living death afterlife and gaining superpowers in the process unleashed when an alien made of pure energy interrupts a satanic ritual and nearly winning until Al Capone comes back and takes over whole star systems then the dead take some planets to over universes except one is a horrific nightmare realm with an enemy made up of a squillion different species liquefied and mashed together into a blob of pure scary and then the guy who started it all summons the scary blob to our universe and everybody nearly dies but someone else saves the day by piloting a living starship to where a god hangs out and talks it into helping. The impressive part is this is actually done in such a way that every premise is plausible and the impacts they have on the world are realistic.
** Hamilton does this. ''Fallen Dragon'' is about mercenaries in [[OrganicTechnology organic]] PowerArmor sent to colonies by [[CorruptCorporateExecutive the corporations]] that set them up. One planet refuses to bow and using unknown artifacts called [[LostTechnology Dragon Pearls]] are able to mount LaResistance. They fine that the Dragon is the remains of an engineered race of living starships/recorders built by SufficientlyAdvancedAlien NeglectfulPrecursors that are able to rejuvenate the hero and send him [[TimeTravel back through time]] so he can get his girlfriend back.
** ''Pandora's Star'' is about an empire of far-flung planets connected by ''[[CoolTrain trains]]'' that has been infiltrated by [[HiveMind aliens]] that escaped from a DysonSphere before its completion by SufficientlyAdvancedAliens that moved on to bigger things. One hero's quest is guided by [[OurElvesAreBetter elves]] who trigggered the Earth tales of TheFairFolk, who seem to be [[ScrewYouElves unconcerned with the fate of man]] and who travel between planets by ''walking''. There's also a lot of [[SmokingHotSex sex.]]
* Elizabeth Bear's ''Edda of Burdens'' series: as of ''Book One: All The Windwracked Stars'', we have a post-apocalyptic steampunk valkyrie historian, a two-headed immortal flying cyborg warhorse, magico-genetically spliced catgirl police officers with the souls of dead angels, reincarnated rentboys with superstrength, and a few completely casual mentions of '''battle [[Creator/HPLovecraft shoggoths]]'''.
* SurfingSamuraiRobots is about an Alien that has a [[CyranoDeBergerac big nose]] and has come to [[EarthIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse Earth]] in order to be a [[PrivateDetective detective]]. Also, there are some [[SurferDude Surfing]] {{Samurai}} WesternAnimation/{{Robots}}, and [[spoiler:it turns out that the whole thing was set up by the FemmeFatale's dad, who is a lizard.]] Once again...
* ''CompleteWorldKnowledge''. Hoboes, presidents, mole-men, cane swords, ferrets, giant iguanas, druids, masturbation out a window, JonathanCoulton, zeppelins, Time Lords, a sequel to ''Literature/TheCatcherInTheRye'', samurai, thunderbirds... apparently the only thing that doesn't exist in John Hodgman's mind is [[spoiler: Chicago.]]
* ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudiceAndZombies,'' the classic Jane Austen romance retold with the addition of, well, not to put too fine a point on it, [[ZombieApocalypse ultra-violent zombie mayhem]]. And ninjas.
** Followed by ''Literature/SenseAndSensibilityAndSeaMonsters'', which features mutant lobsters, rampaging octopi, and pirates. And apparently [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Davy Jones]].
** Followed by ''Literature/MansfieldPark and Mummies'', which features spirits of ancient Egyptian pharoahs, vampires, collections of ancient Egyptian artifacts, and mummies.
** Followed by ''Literature/{{Emma}} and the Werewolves''. Stand by for the next two -- no doubt it will be a short wait...
* ''Literature/AbrahamLincolnVampireHunter''. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin That's all you need to know]]
* ''Literature/TheGoneAwayWorld'' by Nick Harkaway. How to describe it? An AftertheEnd ''Catch-22'' cowritten by Thomas Pynchon and Douglas Adams by way of ''Literature/FightClub'' with heroic Hazmat troubleshooters vs the evil megacorp. And oh yeah, [[spoiler: ninjas vs kung fu mimes]]
* Among the other contents of ''UnLunDun'''s HurricaneOfPuns are trash bin ninjas called "Binja."
* Tobias Buckell started writing ''Crystal Rain'' by listing all the cool things he could think of. Mongoose men fight Aztecs with zeppelins, while the pirate hero (at least he has a hook and likes to sail) battles amnesia on a steampunk quest to the frozen north to recover the secrets of their offworld ancestors. And ''Sly Mongoose'' has sky cities and space zombies.
* The CrazyAwesome nature of ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' cannot be overemphasized. A polka-powered zombie tyrannosaurus! A cult of porn-star sorceresses! Ninja ghouls! Paladins with Kalashnikovs! Secret agent demon werewolves! A wizard with a vampire hairstylist brother! And so on and so forth.
** And because this warrants reiteration: A BadassLongcoat-wearing, [[FirstPersonSmartass joke-cracking]] PrivateEye wizard '''riding a [[RaisingTheSteaks zombie]] ''[[TyrannosaurusRex Tyrannosaurus]] [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs rex]]'' [[ThePowerOfRock powered by polka]] into battle''' [[CoolVersusAwesome against]] a legion of ghosts and super-[[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies zombies]] controlled by {{Necromancer}} {{Evil Sorcerer}}s. [[SoCoolItsAwesome Thank you and good night]].
** In-universe, Harry describes [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent goblins]] as being "mutant Terminator serial killer psycho ninjas."
** In SkinGame, Waldo Butters [[spoiler: becomes a Batman Jedi Knight of the Cross.]]
* The ''Literature/CodexAlera'' series by the same author is full of this too. From the page description: "Magical Roman Legionnaires straight out of ''Avatar The Last Airbender'' versus the Zerg. And wolfmen with Blood Magic. And telepathic yetis. And white-haired neanderthal-elves. Riding ground sloths and terror birds..." And, later: "The political dealings of Dune meets a Greco-Roman Society powered by Pokémon." That leaves out the parts where some of the wolfmen get possessed by body-snatching aliens, the Zerg learn magic, and a ChromeChampion swordfights.
** The aforementioned wolfmen have morals and values at least partially influenced by fuedal Japan - which means that not only do we get wolfman samurai-analogues, but we also get ''wolfman ninjas.''
* Jasper Fforde's Literature/ThursdayNext series (and the related Nursery Crimes series) focus on the titular protagonist's adventures in BookWorld, where all characters in fiction are the roles played by BookWorld actors. Gully Foyle of ''Literature/TheStarsMyDestination'' polices Science Fiction. The Racy Novels genre is in a border dispute with Feminist. Her uncle Mycroft, a mad inventor, is sought by a multinational corporation for his latest invention, the Book Portal (which started the whole mess), so he hides in the backstory of the ''Sherlock Holmes'' series - as Sherlock's elder brother. If a reference sounds vaguely literary, it is. In the "real world", things are even stranger - cloned Neanderthals, dodos, and thylacines exist, as do time travel, werewolves, and the radical Bacon Society, which claims Francis Bacon wrote Shakespeare's plays, and is willing to start riots in the streets to prove their point. If you plan to visit, bring a clear jar filled with lentils and rice, and shake it every once in a while. If the mix starts clumping as if something was sorting it, watch out, entropy's going backward.
* In ''Literature/GoodOmens'' Adam describes [[ShowWithinAShow a story he once wrote]]:
-->'It was about this pirate who was a famous detective (...) 'Specially the bit in the spaceship where the dinosaur comes out and fights with the cowboys'

* ''{{Dinotopia}}'' gives us robot dinosaurs, a half-human half-ceratopsian god, and in one of its most popular spinoff novels, samurai ''Troödon''.

* Neal Stephenson's novel ''Snow Crash'' features as it's main character Hiro Protagonist, a ninja computer-hacker pizza delivery boy, who invented the Matrix.
* Clive Barker's "Son of Celluloid" stacks real-life BodyHorror on fantasy horror, in that [[spoiler: the villain of the story is a sentient, mind-manipulating, reality-warping undead ''cancer tumor''.]]
* The first battle in the first ''KingdomKeepers'' book is against Audio-Animatronic PiratesOfTheCaribbean riding space cars that shoot FrickinLaserBeams.
* The prose of writer [[Literature/WeetzieBat Francesca Lia Block]] often comes off like a "girly" version of this trope. For example:
--> "A kiss about apple pie a la mode with the vanilla creaminess melting in the pie heat. A kiss about chocolate when you haven’t eaten chocolate in a year. A kiss about palm trees speeding by, trailing pink clouds when you drive down the strip sizzling with champagne. A kiss about spotlights fanning the sky and the swollen sea spilling like tears all over your legs."
-->-Weetzie Bat
* Andrey Valentinov's adventure series ''The Eye of Power'' (''Око Силы'') has scary recurring villain Vseslav Volkov, who looks like a tall handsome man with an [[RedRightHand unnaturally reddish skin]]. Really he is [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld seven hundred years old]] Russian [[AristocratsAreEvil prince]]. And a necromancer. And a vampire. ''And'' a werewolf. ''And'' a member of an AncientConspiracy. ''And'' a [[DirtyCommunists Communist]]. ''And'' a [[BadassArmy Spetznaz]] officer. With a [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Name to Run Away from Really Fast]]. And yes, Volkov is awesome.
* QuantumGravity
** Zal is [[spoiler:both types of]] [[OurElvesAreBetter elvish]], [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demonic (not entirely by birth)]], and [[ElvishPresley a rock star]]. Also, that spoiler at the beginning means he's [[spoiler:got some failed experiment with the void going on in his background]].
** Lila is a {{Cyborg}}, who is also a spy and a bodyguard [[spoiler:and has a dead elf necromancer in her chest for a while]]. Ah, the power of being around someone with harmonizing powers...
** Tath is an elvish necromancer, which is already weird, though he is not the only one. Then the story progresses, and he also becomes [[spoiler:part fey, and dies and is reborn. Twice]].
** Theoretical here: It appears to be possible to be a demonic, elven, fey necromancer who is/was part machine and then become a ghost while technically keeping all of the former (rock star or other training also applicable), just so long as one doesn't start out human. [[HumansAreFlawed Because humans are passive with magic.]]
* Gemma Files's ''Literature/TheHexslingerSeries'': An AlternateHistory, WeirdWest adventure with a gang of outlaws and robbers led by a Hard Gay couple, one of whom is a former corrupt preacher turned dark sorcerer, the other of whom is an expert sharpshooter [[spoiler: and potential sorcerer who becomes the vessel of an an Aztec god]], who aid in the resurrection of a power-hungry Mayan goddess. The series also features a Navajo medicine woman, real-life historical figure Allan Pinkerton leading a secret group that scientifically studies the workings of magic and sends spies to monitor the sorcerous outlaws, and an evil Chinese albino sorceress who is also a child prostitute. And [[spoiler: the genuinely pious minister who is implied to have been resurrected by an angel in order to fight the evil sorcerers]]. All of this is just from the first book.
* ''[[CaptainUnderpants The Adventures of Ook and Gluk, Kung-Fu Cavemen From The Future]]''. ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
* ''Clash of the Geeks'' is a short-story collection (and fundraiser for the Lupus Foundation of America) themed around a picture of Creator/WilWheaton wielding a lance, riding a unicorn pegasus kitten, and wearing a clown sweater, while attacking an orcish version of JohnScalzi.
* Fairly easy way to explain the [[Literature/{{Dune}} Bene Gesserit]]: Eugenicist Psychic Ninja Slut Nuns
* In Creator/TimPowers' ''Literature/OnStrangerTides]]'', historical pirate Blackbeard is a voodoo sorcerer with zombie minions, and a rival sorcerer raises a shipfull of pirates [[spoiler: and another ship from the Spanish navy, although that was by accident]] as animated skeletons.
* ''Jasper Jones.''
** Jeffrey Lu, upon learning that his friend Charlie had a nightmare about the Wizard of Oz: "Really? But there are so many cooler things to have nightmares about. Like sharks. Communist sharks, with razor-sharp fins that can walk on land."
** An obviously best-selling novel that Jeffrey and Charlie wrote together was about an ex-cop turned archaeologist called [[AwesomeMcCoolname Truth McJustice]] who, among too many other awesome exploits to mention, discovers the Holy Grail and does martial-arts battle with an imposter Pope.
* The main character of ''[[Literature/UndaVosari Unda Vosari: Legends]]'', Captain Vincent Lorimar, had training by ninjas in his younger years, took to the seas and became a pirate to fight his arch-enemy, Baron Calavera.
* The T'lan Imass of the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' are zombie-shapeshifting-cavemen and their spiritual leaders are zombie-shapeshifting-werecreature-cavemen.
* Literature/MiyaBlackPiratePrincess is both pirate ''and'' princess.
* [[Literature/FairytaleNovels The Midnight Dancers]] has Paul Fester, a juggling, flute-playing ninja clown.'
* TheSecretsOfTheImmortalNicholasFlamel. It's not a FantasyKitchenSink so much as a Fantasy Home Depot Plumbing Department. With an ActionGirl FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire, {{HistoricalDomainCharacter}}s aplenty (the villains include Elizabethan CourtMage John Dee, Billy the Kid, and Creator/NiccoloMachiavelli, while the heroes include JoanOfArc and Creator/WilliamShakespeare) and AllMythsAreTrue.
* By the end of the trilogy of ''TabletopGame/BloodBowl'' novels, one of the antagonists is a Black Orc reanimated as a vampire and then possessed by Khorne.
* The Ironborn in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' are essentially [[EldritchAbomination Cthulhu]]-[[ReligionOfEvil worshipping]] Vikings.
* [[MortalEngines Zombie cyborg soldiers]] with blades hidden in their fingers would qualify for this trope alone, but later books introduce Stalkers that are based on animals, making such lovely things as zombie cyborg soldier giant spiders and zombie cyborg soldier crows.
* Richard from ''TheSwordOfTruth'' is a war wizard. That is, he has talents of every other type of wizard (including prophecy and crafting). Plus ImplausibleFencingPowers and ImprobableAimingSkills.
* In the german e-novel "Magicalogen" the main characters are wizards, scientists and [[UpliftedAnimal Uplifted Animals]]. (The last one is except for the one who is a dragon.) [[spoiler: Except that he isn't actually a dragon but some kind of lizard man in disguise. And a spy.]] Over the course of the novel they invent a time machine, a space ship and a magical computer.
** There's also Kräik. He's a gardener and a hitman but likes to appear as a pirate. He's also a [[ImAHumanitarian cannibal]].
** In his next book "Wettstreit der Schwarzen Schreiber" the same author gives us a wizardry student who happens to be a vampire, a wannabe-goth and a unicorn. Or, fort short, [[FanFic/MyImmortal Ebony]] as a unicorn.
