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, {{Magitek}}, FunctionalMagic, MagicFromTechnology, and probably ScientificallyUnderstandableSorcery. 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, DungeonPunk, and PlanetaryRomance. Contrast HowUnscientific, where the mix of genres seems out of place, MagicVersusScience, where the both aspects are in a rivalry, and TheMagicVersusTechnologyWar, where an in-universe warfare happens between wizards and scientists. Compare and Contrast DoingInTheWizard and DoingInTheScientist, which {{retcon}}s a fantasy element to a sci fi one and vice versa.

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.

Supertrope of WizardsFromOuterSpace.



[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/{{ARIA}}'' is 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]].
* ''Anime/AuraBattlerDunbine'' was a noteworthy HumongousMecha anime because it was a Creator/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.
* ''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.
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' is set in a digital world that in later seasons is accessed by a computer. The titular Mons have magical powers and many are based off mythical beasts.
* ''Manga/DragonBall'' starts out as a new rendition of a fantastic Chinese folk tale, with some science-fiction elements on the side (everything made by Capsule Corp). In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' we get alien invaders, space travel, and androids and it all gets weirder from there. The final arc involved WizardsFromOuterSpace and an unstoppable pink blob-monster from near the dawn of time. ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' also throws destructive gods and TheMultiverse into the mix.
* ''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/{{Hunter x Hunter}}'' is set in a world brimming with strange fantasy creatures and mythical locations juxtaposed with modern cities and cutting-edge technology, and characters can manipulate their auras to use Nen, which gives them access to fantastic abilities.
* 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...
* ''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.
* 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.
* ''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.
* In ''Anime/PanzerWorldGalient'' the setting was a typical medieval fantasy world... with giant robots thrown in the mix. Later events show [[spoiler: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/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' is primarily a MagicalGirl show, yet it takes place in a rather futuristic city. On top of that, the conflict in the series stems from the approaching heat death of the universe, and at one point Kyubey gives a ([[ArtisticLicensePhysics dumbed-down]]) explaination of entropy to Madoka. The science part ''really'' comes in when [[spoiler: Kyubey's [[DespairGambit full 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, who [[WasOnceAMan become]] witches, ''really are'' magical and not bound by the laws of physics, so the energy their despair produces [[KnightTemplar can be used to fight entropy.]]]] Indeeed, it’s considered a sci-fi series in many circles, and fans like to discuss the science in this series; even WebVideo/SFDebris reviewed it.
* ''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/SailorMoon'' is ''largely'' UrbanFantasy, but the ''S'' season shifts toward this, due to the first BigBad being a MadScientist using technologically-created Daimons in his quest for magical talismans. Also, throughout the series, the majority of monsters are extraplanetary aliens of some kind.
* LightNovel/SukaSuka seems like a pretty standard fantasy world at first, with floating islands and various fantastical races. However, it’s later revealed that the gods who created the world were actually [[spoiler: SufficientlyAdvancedAliens]]. It also turns out [[spoiler: they only terraformed the planet the story takes place on. The primary antagonists of the series are actually the planet’s original inhabitants who seek to reverse the Visitor’s terraforming and restore the world to the way it once was.]]
* ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' technically may be a sci-fi, but essentially all of the aliens are some form of {{Youkai}} from Myth/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 UsefulNotes/{{Onmyodo}} exorcisms, [[RuleOfFunny so long as it's funny]].
* ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'' has a girl from present day Earth being magically transported to Gaia, a sort of hidden moon from where she can see the Earth and the Moon. In this world, feudal states, Italian-like and Arabian-like cities, and a superior technological empire are at war, using Mechas that are powered by dragon hearts. Oh, and there are Fairies, but we won't call them that.
* ''Manga/WolfsRain'': Technology meets mythology. And how. [[spoiler: In an incredibly [[MindScrew twist]] at the end of the series, you'd think the entire story happened centuries in the future, when in reality it was 10,000 years in the past.]]
* ''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.
* The Leijiverse has this in spades. ''SpaceBattleshipYamato'' often includes divine intervention in the form of goddesses such as Trelaina, Shalbart, and Aquarius as well as [[spoiler: Queen Starsha after her death]]. ''CaptainHarlock'' encounters everything from AncientAstronauts, [[EldritchAbomination eldritch abominations]], and TheRingOfTheNibelung. Manga/GalaxyExpress999 features a spaceship implausibly designed after an old fashioned steam locomotive. And then there is ''Queen Millenia'' whose series and movie have the honor of being scored by NewAge Space Music composer Kitaro.

[[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."
* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': The Dreddverse is mostly a sci-fi dystopian urban sprawl with robots, mutants, hoverships, and colonization of deep space, but there are quite a lot of supernatural elements, including psychics, undead enemies, demonic possession, and various types of magic.
* ''ComicBook/WhatsNewWithPhilAndDixie'' on the differences between fantasy and science fiction: [[http://www.airshipentertainment.com/growfcomic.php?date=20070617 None.]]
* ''ComicBook/PathfinderWorldscape'' takes place in a plane of existence that draws warriors from three different settings such as titular campaign (which already features this trope, as seen in the "Tabletop Games" folder below), Earth in its various timelines including [[Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian Hyborian Age]] and [[Literature/JohnCarterOfMars Mars]]. As result, we have sorcerers prancing about in airships and radium guns being wielded alongside swords and magic.

* Many fanfics will fall into this category, usually crossovers between works on opposite ends of the {{speculative fiction}} scale.
* ''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/ChildOfTheStorm'' features this, true to its comics roots, mixing up A.I. with GeniusLoci, magic and technology - though there tends to be a little more emphasis on magic than technology.
* ''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.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' fic ''[[Fanfic/CrucibleMassEffect Crucible]]'' started with the time travelled Ad Astra which continue the sci-fi theme from canon, then the existence of living stars was revealed which kinda ventured out of this, and then ghosts/souls started to popping here and there and finally ''[[{{Psychopomp}} Death]]'' himself appeared which firmly pushed the series into Fantasy theme. And don't even get into what [[spoiler: Shepard]] actually is and was or whom she's connected to.
* ''Fanfic/GloriousShotgunPrincess'' is a crossover between the (comparatively) hard SciFi of ''Franchise/MassEffect'', and the clearly fantasy (and [[EverybodyWasKungFuFighting Kung-Fu]]) world of ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}''.
* ''Fanfic/MassEffectHumanRevolution'' starts out as Space FilmNoir, but fantasy elements start creeping in from the Caleston arc onwards due to the lingering effects of SufficientlyAdvancedAliens.
* The universe of ''Fanfic/SonicXDarkChaos'', being 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.
* ''Fanfic/UndocumentedFeatures'', a MegaCrossover, fuses many {{Fantasy}} and ScienceFiction sources into a single narrative. For example, a [[Myth/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/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 {{Magitek}} 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 {{Magitek}}.
* In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', C'hou has become a massive Science FantasyKitchenSink, blending magic and tech much more thoroughly, with outworlders who embody everything from ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' caveman-type tech to [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons AD&D]] adventuring parties to ''Franchise/StarTrek'' [[{{Expy}} expys]], and where you can go from a monster-filled dungeon to a high-tech city just by walking through a jump gate. [[spoiler: Or, at least, so it seems; the entire thing is actually a giant telepathic {{MMORPG}}, and the real C'hou is more or less what it used to be (which is still science fantasy, albeit less so)]].
* While ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is already an example, ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}''/''Literature/TheHobbit''/''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''/''Machinema/RedVsBlue'' FusionFic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11852303/1/Rise-of-a-Star-Knight Rise of a Star Knight]]'', and its sequel ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12404778/1/Knights-of-Remnant-The-Ring-of-Darkness Knights of Remnant: The Ring of Darkness]]'', fit this even better, with the [[MagicKnight Star]] [[SuperpowerfulGenetics Knights]] and their personal armies, the [[BadassArmy Sky Knights]], being far more public than the Maidens, cavalry charges on [[MyHorseIsAMotorbike motorcycles]] by knights with [[SwissArmyWeapon gun-spears]], {{Mithril}}, Grimm orcs and Uruk Hai being lead by [[spoiler: a rogue cyborg SuperSoldier]], [[TheClan the Valkyrie family]] acting as the equivalent of the dwarves, goblins[[note]]Descendants of [[LittleBitBeastly Faunus]] who hid in the mountains and were separated from the rest of their kind for so long they evolved into something else[[/note]], [[ArtifactOfDoom the various Artifacts Of Doom]] from the Lord of the Rings, etc. Basically, it has more fantasy elements (taken from the [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings granddaddy]] of them all) than ''RWBY'', and as such mixes them more with sci-fi (The aforementioned Sky Knights are loyal to [[MagicKnight Magic Knights]], but fight using tanks and MiniMecha, or make cavalry charges on motorcycles and trucks, Moria had a tramway before it was overrun by orcs, etc.).

* ''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.
* 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/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 (until the sequels, where he has powers outside it as well, which Morpheus says come from [[{{God}} "the Source"]]).
* 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 where 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}}.
* ''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.
* ''Film/{{Thor}}'' series:
** ''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-Rosen 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/PrisonersOfTheLostUniverse'' has humans from a modern Earth enter a HeroicFantasy type world via a dimensional transporter.

* OlderThanPrint; 1321's ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' imagines an afterlife in the physical universe as Medieval astronomers and scientists knew it. For example, as Dante enters Heaven with the soul of his deceased lover, Dante realizes he is on the Moon and theorizes why the Moon has black spots (that we now know to be craters) on it. His saintly lover criticizes his concepts on "rarity and density" of matter and proves his theory to be invalid. It should be noted Dante isn't ultimately concerned with physical science, as even this exchange on the Moon ends with a theological point. More specifically, the lover uses the dispute to reveal to Dante how the Moon, the stars, and anything made of matter relies on the will and love of [[{{God}} the Deep Mind]] to exist at all.
* ''Literature/TheActsOfCaine'' mixes a Cyberpunk future Dystopy with a HighFantasy world ''far'' DarkerAndEdgier and BloodierAndGorier than your usual one.
* ''Literature/AlmostNight'' has vampires, werewolves, a troll, an elf, the main character drinks a magic potion, and the plot is centered around the spell book of an evil wizard. However, there are flying cars, space travel, a space empire, aliens, and laser guns.
* ''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/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. [[WordOfGod 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/TheShipWhoWon'', 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.
* Creator/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.
* 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 first 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=]).
** Someone once described the first book as "Film/DieHard [[RecycledInSpace WITH FAIRIES]]". Apt.
* Literature/BelisariusSeries has sword-bearing warriors, robots, scizo-tech, time-travel, visions of the future, and all, all mixed up.
* J.S. Morin's "Black Ocean" series takes place in an alternate future version of our own reality, where sleek computer equipment can be fried by a wizard having a tantrum, spaceships travel through the Astral Plane instead of hyperspace, and the main characters have magic earrings instead of the usual TranslatorMicrobes.
* 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/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 tetralogy 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".
* The ''Literature/DanteValentine'' series is set a few hundred years in the future on an Earth where demons, {{necromancy}}, {{golem}}s, HealingHands, and [[{{Satan}} the Devil himself]] exist side-by-side with computers, firearms, {{Hover Board}}s, and FrickinLaserBeams. The series uses elements of SufficientlyAnalyzedMagic (e.g. the setting's version of [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]], the Nichtvren, reproduce partially through a retroviral infection), but [[ScienceCannotComprehendPhlebotinum not everything can apparently be analyzed]] (there's apparently an "etheric transfer" involved in Nichtvren as well).
* ''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.
* Creator/DavidWeber is [[Literature/HonorHarrington best known]] for his SpaceOpera and MilitaryScienceFiction, but he occasionally plays with this trope:
** The ''Literature/HellsGate'' series is about two human civilizations that come into contact with each other through inter-universal portals. One civilization, The Union of Aracana, is a very {{Magitek}} civilization with wizards and genetically engineered dragons, where the main weapons for fighting are swords and crossbows. The second civilization, The Empire of Sharona, has PsychicPowers along with some [[BlatantLies minor advantages]] like rifles, machine guns, cannons, steam engines, trains, armored personnel carriers and battleships. Neither side reacts well to the existence of the other.
** ''Literature/InFuryBorn'' features a SpaceMarine protagonist who is possessed by a literal Greek goddess (one of the Furies, the goddesses of vengeance who torment evildoers). This makes for a somewhat jarring GenreShift in the omnibus edition after Weber added two prequel novels of straight-up MilitaryScienceFiction.
* 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...
* 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/EckoRising'' by Daanie Ware combines a high tech cyberpunk world with that of fantasy.
* ''Literature/TheFirstDwarfKing'' uses this beautifully. Much of the first act takes place in a world populated by humans, elves, dwarves, orcs, and demons. Sounds like a StandardFantasySetting, right? Well, the races have gotten to the point where they use guns in the place of bows and arrows, which they wield [[SwordAndGun tandem with swords, axes, and warhammers]]. In addition, the second act reveals [[spoiler: a race of [[TheGreys aliens]] living on an island off the coast, whose society utilizes the equivalent of 21st century technology. Just to make things even more complicated, the aliens' closest allies are a race of LizardFolk who live in MedievalStasis ''by choice'', yet have also developed a fleet of airships. The lizards also have a ChurchMilitant whose members can call upon their god to summon katanas out of thin air.]] And that's just ''scratching the surface''.
** The story also uses this trope in its setting and backstory. The universe was created by [[{{God}} an omnipotent entity]] who used evolution to set the races on their course to sentience. Humans, elves, dwarves, orcs, and Redariam evolved from apes, while the Tarsi evolved from ancient reptiles. You may wipe your brains off the monitor now.
* ''Literature/{{Freakling}}'' by Lana Krumwiede is set in an after the end {{crapsaccharine world}} with some advanced technology and where people have psychic powers.
* 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.
* Everything that happens in ''Literature/TheGiver'' is mostly within the realm of reality, except for the psychic way memories are passed from The Giver to The Receiver. No science is involved, just physical contact and concentration, implying use of some form of magic or supernatural ability.
* 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.
* 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.)
* 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.
* A lot of Creator/JackChalker'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.
** The ''Literature/SoulRider'' series had the AppliedPhlebotinum created by humans, whose descendants then forgot its origins.
** 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.
* ''Literature/{{Illium}}'', by Dan Simmons, in breathtaking style. There are space robots [[CallARabbitASmeerp called Moravecs]], exotic rocket propulsion, planetary rings, teleportation, a space plane that is the essense of a [[RetroRocket UFO]], and the ''entire Greek Pantheon''. Throughout the book and its sequel, ''Olympos'', the Moravecs are skeptical that these gods are genuinely gods and not some high-tech trickery.
* 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/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/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 Creator/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/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/OrsonScottCard, in the afterword to an audio recording of ''Literature/EndersGame'', talks about trying to sell a short story based in the world of ''Literature/TheWorthingSaga''. 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."
** His ''Literature/HomecomingSaga'' series is a Science Fantasy reworking of ''Literature/TheBookOfMormon.''
* According to its author, the universe of ''Literature/PlayPlaces'' is science fantasy and ''not'' scifi, although this has yet to be seen from the ending.
* Creator/RogerZelazny liked to challenge the boundaries between Science Fiction and Fantasy, and was known for blending in elements from Mythology:
** ''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.
** ''Literature/LordOfLight'' featured apparent Hindu Gods--actually humans with mutant powers--on a far-future colony world.
** ''Literature/{{Roadmarks}}'' mixes science fiction tropes like robots and cyborgs with fantasy tropes like dragons and mystical powers in a setting where characters casually travel the length and breadth of human history. (Reader's choice which side the time travel falls on.)
* 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.
* J. Eifie Nichols' Literature/TheRadiantDawn mixes science fiction (the alien Wutner race), urban fantasy (the guns used by the defenders to protect the fortress), and fantasy (the magic used to raise the undead/Dawn's shield).
* 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.
* Creator/SimonRGreen's novels are set in a Verse that's about half supernatural horror/fantasy and half gonzo MadScience.
* The Literature/StarshipsMage series by Creator/GlynnStewart uses magic as the key to faster-than-light travel, allowing humanity to colonize the stars after the war that created mage-kind.
* "Sufficiently Advanced Technology" by Creator/ChristopherNuttall. The story is of a Post-Singularity, Spacefaring society with vast technology that discovers an anomalous planet where wizards rule over feudal cities.
* 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.
* ''Literature/ASymphonyOfEternity'' is a {{SpaceOpera}} set in a universe [[{{Magitek}} where magic is used instead of technology]], the aliens are varried and diverse with no two characters alike and the story is set around the backdrop of an Epic Galactic War with roman legion like units and Greek Phalanxes fighting by the side of magically powered tanks and space fighters that share the sky and outer space with power armours and pegasus riders.
* 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.
* 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.
* ''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."
* 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 [[UsefulNotes/ProgrammingLanguage programming]]? Go to Mars. And then explore the rest of the galaxy and meet up with aliens.
* In the novella ''Literature/ATasteOfHoney'', fantasy versions of AncientRome and AncientAfrica are combined with interstellar travel, so-called gods using sci-fi gadgets and StockSuperpowers that seem like magic but are actually science. The people fight with spears and swords and the gods use tablets.
* ''Literature/TheYoungAncients'' begins as a stock fantasy setting, before learning it's Earth thousands of years AfterTheEnd. The [[PowersAsPrograms magic]] also functions on a TechnoBabble explanation. By book nine of the Magitek industrial revolution, there's Magitek spaceships and a moon colony.
* A DownplayedTrope example occurs in SpaceOpera series ''Literature/LucifersStar'' by Creator/CTPhipps where people duel with swords, fight with shields, and have nobles. They also possess dragons and unicorns for pets. This is all due to SufficientlyAdvanced science, though with fantasy worlds being a popular archetype to terraform your colony around.
* ''Literature/TheMachineriesOfEmpire'' mixes spaceships, sentient AI and FTL travel with living shadows, possession and calendar-based RealityWarping.
* ''Literature/TerraIgnota'' seems like a pure Science Fiction series on the face of it, but the fact that Bridger can work miracles such as bringing toys to life and possibly even resurrecting the dead, which nobody can explain with science, edges it just that tiny bit into Fantasy territory. Due to sufficiently advanced science, there are also pet unicorns and all kinds of other fantastic beasts.
* ''Literature/{{Feral}}'' runs on this. While magic does exist, 'wizard' may well be the same as 'scientist', with use of scientific thought and processes throughout the story. The story takes place after it's worlds creation of the printing press, and it's stated multiple times that its creation is more important than anything other device. Char, the main character, uses science and magic to create armor and weapons, including a blunderbuss whose gunpowder is lit by a fire rune.
* ''The Psalms of Isaak'' has a sci-fi backstory, being set on [[spoiler: a LostColony of]] Earth AfterTheEnd, with the present, roughly-renaissance-esque society existing in the ruins of the much more high-tech society that preceded it. Relics from said society include things like robots... and BloodMagic, with people in-universe often having a hard time determining where science ends and sorcery begins [[spoiler: with the abilities of the distant precursor Younger Gods being explicitly described as technological, but so far advanced they might as well be magic even to a modern reader, much less the characters in-story]]. Despite its sci-fi trappings, the series largely plays out as HighFantasy; later books [[DoingInTheWizard do in several wizards]] but also [[GoingCosmic double down on the mystical and philosophical thematic elements]].

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' dives head first into this in its fourth season, which introduces the explicitly supernatural ComicBook/GhostRider into the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse and has a plot line which revolves around S.H.I.E.L.D. competing with a literal ''ghost'' to recover a TomeOfEldritchLore called the Darkhold, all existing contemporaneously with the usual sci-fi schtick of the Marvel universe. The same season even contains a subplot about a [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot Life Model Decoy]] named Aida and [[DoAndroidsDream her awakening as an artificial intelligence.]]
** Prior to the fourth season, the show already contained some trace elements of ScienceFantasy, such as the various Asgardian characters who occasionally showed up help S.H.I.E.L.D. (including two guest appearances by Lady Sif from ''Film/{{Thor}}'').
* ''Series/BabylonFive'' started out looking like pure sci-fi and eventually ended up here. The transmigration of souls, technomages, and the first sapient being in the galaxy (now an immortal) coexisted with psychic powers, hyperdrives, and battleships. Though notably, [[DoingInTheWizard everything was explicitly given an empirical, scientific gloss]][[note]]The "souls" are a copy of a person's mindstate at death, the mages and immortal are using SufficientlyAdvancedTechnology. Various characters' religious faith in the "fantasy" aspects are often revealed to be accurate on some level. At least, until the literal ''demon'' that appeared in one of the post-series DTV films[[/note]] - [[Creator/JMichaelStraczynski the creator]] explicitly wanted to write in the style of a High Fantasy epic. The main characters of the [[Series/{{Crusade}} sequel series]] were even partially modelled on [[AnAdventurerIsYou the classic adventuring party makeup.]]
* Both the [[Series/BattlestarGalactica1978 original]] and [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 reimagined]] ''Franchise/BattlestarGalactica'' included 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.
* 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.
* 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.
* ''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'' all have elements of this. Some lean more towards science or magic, others [[{{Magitek}} happily mix the two]], but it's inevitable when you have superheroes and physics-defying giant robots fighting monsters.
* ''{{Series/Shadowhunters}}'' is this in contrast to [[Literature/TheMortalInstruments the books it was based on]]. In the books, the Shadowhunters used ancient magic and tools to track demons. In the show, the Institute is shown having lots of high-tech machinery and security systems to do the tracking.
* ''Series/SirArthurConanDoylesTheLostWorld'' had the 1920s Challenger Expedition that were stranded on a Prehistoric Plateau not only dealing with Dinosaurs and Apemen but a huge assortment of other Fantasy/Scifi themes. Everything from witches and disembodied spirits to space aliens and time travel. The supernatural plots usually had Challenger scoffing at the idea of such rubbish and that everything they encountered had an answer based in science.
* ''Series/TinMan'' is a retelling of the Wizard of Oz in a sci-fi setting. Essentially it's meant to be the original Oz that Dorothy landed in - with a few hundred years' worth of industrial advancement. There are some CyberPunk elements, but the villain is still a WickedWitch who's planning to bring about TheNightThatNeverEnds.
* ''Franchise/TheTwilightZone'' which was the earliest tv series in America to show that the line between Fantasy and Science Fiction, blurred, from [[spoiler:ghostly flying saucers]] to tales of a man who could create anything with a tape recorder.
* ''Series/WizardsVsAliens'' has a perfect balance of both science fiction and high fantasy elements. The creators ''Creator/RussellTDavies'' and ''Creator/PhilFord'' had originally worked on ''Series/DoctorWho'' in which there were often fantasy creatures, but they were always rationalised into alien beings. The idea for Wizards vs. Aliens came when it occured to them they didn't have to merge one genre into the other, they could have both existing in the same universe!

* 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.

* Gloryhammer's second album is called 'Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards.' Lyrical content contains references to Spaceknights, a wizard resurrecting the spirit of a dead hero in a hologram, and the king of the galaxy smashing goblins with his Astral Hammer. If that wasn't enough, it's a direct sequel to the band's first offering 'Tales From the Kingdom of Fire," which opened with a undead unicorns and magical artillary.

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

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''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 ''TabletopGame/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/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/{{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.
* ''Franchise/DuelMasters'' as a whole. Magic is pretty much an in-built feature, being what seperates the five civilisations, and thematically is does play up the fantasy angle. However, both the light and water civilisations have very advanced technology, to the point that the former are actually mostly living machines/cyborgs whose [[LightEmUp light manipulation]] can easily just be interpreted as standard sci-fi laser/optics use.
* ''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/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.
* ''TabletopGame/FengShui'' takes place in a universe where robot monkeys coexist with sorcerers and demonic creatures.
* ''TabletopGame/GURPSTechnomancer''. 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.
* The Japanese-only RPG ''Kamigakari'' is an [[FantasyKitchenSink Anime Kitchen Sink]] set in modern Japan. [[{{Cyborg}} Cyborgs]] fight [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons dragons]] while traditional Shinto [[UsefulNotes/{{Onmyodo}} onmyoji]] compare techniques with cutting-edge [[{{Magitek}} Digital Sorcerers]]. The second supplement, ''Machine God of Damocles'', is largely focused on the technological side of things.
* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' features groups that use science and groups that use magic.
* 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.
* Monte Cook's ''TabletopGame/{{Numenera}}'' is inspired by works like Gene Wolfe's ''Book of the New Sun'', and is set a 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. Monte has cited ClarkesThirdLaw 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/{{Pathfinder}}'' looooves itself this trope. An entire book is devoted to the various planets in Golarion's solar system. There is also a nation in the setting called Numeria, where a starship crashed smack in the middle of a savage, barbaric land thousands of years ago. To top it all off, an entire Adventure Path, "Iron Gods", was based in that nation which asks the question, "what happens when an artificial intelligence [[DeusEstMachina gains the ability to grant spells to its followers]]?". This Adventure Path was further supplemented with both an entire book on sci-fi technology and technological magic, and another book that details the various alien races you can play as, including [[ArtificialHuman androids]].
** ''TabletopGame/{{Starfinder}}'' is a {{spinoff}} dedicated to science fantasy. Taking thousands of years after ''Pathfinder'', the native races of Golarion now live on the Absalom space station after their home planet mysteriously disappeared. Knowledge of when, why, and how Golarion vanished was lost to The Gap, a millenia-long period of which there are no memories or historical records anywhere in the multiverse. Advanced technology like energy weapons and starships have become common place, along with a new form of magic called Technomancy, using the correlations between magic and technology to create something more powerful than either on their own.
* 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, chemically-enhanced supersoldiers 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 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.
** 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). The local {{Evil Empire}}s (The Transgalactic Empire and the Splugorth Dominions) are ruled secretly or openly by {{Eldritch Abomination}}s. Technology, magic, psionics and super powers all co-exist in a StandardSciFiSetting.... which is currently undergoing a Demonic Invasion.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' is the quintessential CyberPunk UrbanFantasy. It's set in a world after TheMagicComesBack, with elves, dwarves, trolls, orcs, and dragons, but it's also set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, so instead of forging axes underneath mountains, said dwarves are more likely to use cybernetic interfaces to pilot unmanned combat drones.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' is perhaps one of the genre's most glorious (and darkest) examples. 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]]. However, said spaceships must travel through [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace hell]] to move between stars, the lasers are [[HolyHandGrenade blessed in the name]] of The GodEmperor by the all-pervasive ChurchMilitant, the extraterrestrials are based on classic fantasy races [[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE]], PsychicPowers are drawn from the same hellscape your spaceship has to dive through and are as likely to get you purged as a heretic witch as get you [[DemonicPossession possessed]], the HumongousMecha are LostTechnology worshiped by the resident CargoCult and the Space Marines are fanatical UsefulNotes/KnightsTemplar. The medieval Gothic aesthetic to the entire place is there to drive home just how regressive and oppressed everything is.
** John Blanche, the artistic madman who defined the dark gothic aesthetic of both Warhammer games, describes the setting in the Spetember White Dwarf magazine (the game's 30'th anniversary special) thus:
--> "Warhammer 40,000 is, to me, a pure [English] view of medievalism in space. It's full of fear, superstition, conflict and servitude and that's what we aim to show in the artwork."

* In ''Toys/{{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"[[note]]although the web serials imply that they are accessing Mata Nui's interior controls[[/note]] 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''. 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.
* Franchise/{{LEGO}}'s Toys/NexoKnights line is set in a medieval kingdom where magic meets space-age technology.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''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.
* 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."
** The prequel series, ''[[VideoGame/ArNosurge Surge Concerto]]'' takes this even further, as Ra Ciela's civilization is even more advanced than Ar Ciel's, and one of the series' games even takes place almost entirely on a spaceship. However, there's still the same magic music and gods as is usual for this universe.
* ''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/AsurasWrath'' IS this trope with a [[Myth/HinduMythology Hindu]] and [[UsefulNotes/{{Buddhism}} Buddhist]] twist.
* Although ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'' is a deeply sci-fi based game in the vein of ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'', it has a number of things that are more fantasy in basis. These include among things, [[MagicFromScience magical abilities derived from science grounded concepts]] and {{Magitek}}-like technology. The most notable of all of these however are the Eldrid, an entire faction consisting of fantasy inspired individuals whose number includes a [[MushroomMan sentient Fungus]], a SpaceElf, [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame a space dwarf]], and [[{{Snowlem}} a skeletal ice golem]].
* ''VideoGame/CastleCrashers'' starts out in what is, ostensibly, a quirky LowFantasy setting, with a war against a barbarian tribe, evil wizards, and the classic chestnut of the princesses getting kidnapped. Upon crossing the ocean, you immediately thwart an AlienInvasion by the VideoGame/{{Alien Hominid}}s.
* ''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.
* ''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/CosmicFantasy''.
* ''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/{{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/{{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 mix of influences is even stronger in ''VideoGame/Doom2016''. You play a warrior whose wrath is legendary among the forces of hell, clad in mystical PoweredArmor and using all manner of ballistic and energy weaponry, awakening in a Martian facility owned by a humanity that has [[MundaneUtility started mining Hell]] and using its energies to advance to a Golden Age, whilst experimenting on demons and engaging in dark arts rituals. Your allies are an A.I and the Cyborg C.E.O of the company that runs the place, fighting against the demonic forces of hell whose Earthly agent is a scientist using an exoskeleton to counter a crippling disease.
* ''VideoGame/EndlessLegend'' mixes the sciencey bits of [[VideoGame/EndlessSpace its predecessor]] with fantasy, as the game takes place on a former [[{{Precursors}} Concrete Endless]] world which has been populated by the [[LostColony survivors a wrecked spaceship]]. Suits of AnimatedArmor [[PracticalCurrency powered by money]] argue with [[OurDragonsAreDifferent sentient dragons]] in the courts, on the battlefield PowerArmor-wearing hatchetmen follow their HumongousMecha into battle against witches and wizards who get their [[BloodMagic power from pain]], while an empire of malfunctioning robots converts bands of orcs and trolls to join their cause in destroying the ruins of the Endless.
* ''VideoGame/{{ELEX}}'' can be best described as ''VideoGame/{{Gothic}}'' meets ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}''. It takes place on a world similar to modern day Earth that was devastated by a meteor strike. Said meteor brought with a new element, Elex, that can grant people magical powers.
* ''Franchise/{{Fallout}}'' itself occasionally dabbles in more fantastical elements. While usually a SciFiKitchenSink, ''Fallout'' games have featured [[Videogame/Fallout2 an actual ghost and an InnBetweenTheWorlds]], [[Videogame/Fallout3 a haunted office building]] with a TomeOfEldritchLore and [[Videogame/Fallout4 ancient cults that worship abominations.]]
* Averted with the first two ''VideoGame/{{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.
* 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/FinalFantasyIII'' featured post-apocalyptic Ancient technology.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' had a spacecraft capable of going to the moon and a HumongousMecha, although it's otherwise fantasy in all respects.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' has people from other worlds landing on the planet via a meteorite, dimension travel and lost high technology, as well as castles, kings, pirates and dragons.
** ''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 original game had a cell phone-like device, referred to as a 'PHS.' The spinoff game ''VideoGame/DirgeOfCerberus'' and the film ''[[Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren Advent Children]]'' feature these cell phones much more prominently.
** ''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]].
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' has the science fiction aspect mainly as the trait of the antagonistic Garlean Empire, who are incapable of using magic, but Cid Garlond has been making use of both since he defected from said empire. Other science-fantasy concepts induce a fallen CrystalSpiresAndTogas empire (Allag, with [[LiteralMinded some emphasis]] on crystal spires) and aliens (specifically, the dragons or at least Midgarsomnr and his brood).
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' is about a modern-era king on a journey to steal back the world's ''last'' gigantic mana crystal from a medieval-era nation that has been armed to the teeth with advanced robotics technology. Half of the battles involve fighting robot legions equipped with lances and plate armor or exosuits, and the other battles involve hunting down fantastic beasts that make up most of the planet's ecosystem. Noctis uses magical teleporting swords, but he and his allies can also use artillery installations and handguns.
* ''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/{{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.
* 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.
* 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).
* ''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]].
* 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 ''[[Franchise/{{Kirby}} Kirby]]'' series is set on a fantastic alien planet and features fantasy tropes such as castles, knights, dragons, and magical artifacts alongside [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch]] [[LovecraftLite Abominations]], high tech spaceships, and interplanetary travel.
** The plot of ''Kirby: Planet Robobot'' kicks off after [[AlienInvasion alien invaders]] mechanize Kirby's home world for their own profit and the main gameplay feature is Kirby piloting a MiniMecha.
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' has shades of this in that a few games use technology beyond what one could expect from a fantasy setting, from the trains of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks Spirit Tracks]]'' to the Ancient Robots of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'' to the tablet-like Sheikah Slate and robotic Guardians in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]''. In addition, TimeTravel and related tropes are a recurring element within the franchise.
* 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.
* ''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]].
* ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' has [[TankGoodness tanks]] armed with [[PainfullySlowProjectile painfully slow]] rolling mortar shells and [[ThisIsADrill mining drills]], anti-personell [[MacrossMissileMassacre homing missiles]], [[HumongousMecha antrophomorphic weapons]], [[WeaponizedAnimal animals with mounted machine guns]],[[ManEatingPlant man-eating plants]], [[TheVirus a pathogen]] that turns the players [[ZombieApocalypse undead]], shiny flashing bullets and grenades and access to [[AppliedPhlebotinum alien technology]]. Okay. Some of these are scientific, while others are magical.
* ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' is mostly science fiction, what with an intergalactic bounty hunter armed with advanced PoweredArmor pursuing evil InsectoidAliens across different alien planets. But the games also feature fantastical elements, especially from ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' onward. The [[BenevolentPrecursors Chozo]] are an advanced race whose high-tech machines are essentially {{Magitek}}, and on at least one planet they were able to become {{Seers}} and AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence after they ''abandoned'' their technology. One of their major creations, the [[MascotMook Metroids]], are strange energy-based parasites who can suck some sort of LifeEnergy from their victims; the various other factions that research the Metroids really don't know what exactly this energy is, only that creatures can't live without it. The [[TheReptilians Reptilicus]] of ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption'' have a somewhat similar culture to the Chozo and are explicitly stated to use magic, most frequently used for their various {{Golem}}s. And Samus Aran's ArchEnemy, Ridley, is a dragon, a creature usually found in fantasy.
* ''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.
* 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}}.
* The ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' universe also combines elements of both science-fiction (cyborgs, advanced weaponry, parallel dimensions, spaceships) and fantasy (magic, dragons, gods, demons). [[BloodierAndGorier However, the blood physics the series was well known for have gone more realistic and scientific over time.]]
* 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.
* ''VideoGame/{{NieR}}'' and it's [[VideoGame/NierAutomata sequel]] feature both magic and technology in the same setting, although a lot of the seemingly magical things [[spoiler: such as the Gestalts and Grimoires]] are actually just [[ClarkesThirdLaw very advanced technology]] or {{Magitek}}.
* The final act of ''[[VideoGame/{{Oddworld}} Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee]]'' involves raiding an EternalEngine death factory run by [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Corrupt Corporate Executives]] full of machine-gun toting guards, electric defense systems, and floating magnetic mines...while wielding the power of Shrykull the lightning god. The good ending's cutscene even involves [[spoiler: shamans using their combined spiritual power to bring divine wrath on the head of the Big Bad.]]
* ''VideoGame/OmikronTheNomadSoul'' features [[MechaMook Mechaguards]], [[AIIsACrapshoot Supercomputers]] and {{Cyberpunk}} Dystopias mixed with [[OurSoulsAreDifferent Soul Magic]] and [[TheLegionsOfHell Demonic Invaders.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'' takes place in Crosswind Hold, where champions fight with either magic, technology, or {{Magitek}} and have the appearances to match, such as Viktor's very modern frag grenades and assault rifle and Kinessa's futuristic sniper rifle up against Torvald's stone-tech powerfist and Seris' soul-powered lantern. While there was a more even mix in closed beta, the sci-fi aspects have been downplayed in open beta, with more fantasy champions being added and redesigning some of the older champions to look less sci-fi, such as Ruckus' mech going from a cartoonish, Mechwarrior-esque steel fighter to a wood-and-metal steam-powered lifter. This aversion to sci-fi seems to have been done to make ''Paladins'' stand out from other [[HeroShooter Hero Shooters]], such as the sci-fi heavy ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' and SpaceOpera ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}''.
* ''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/PhantasyStar'', though as the series progressed, it more thoroughly embraced the sci-fi side of things.
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' takes place in a ConstructedWorld full of magical creatures called [[TitleDrop Pokemon]], [[PatchworkMap impossible geography]], aliens, robots, psychic powers and spaceships. One sort of pokémon is theorized to be aliens from the moon, [[IfJesusThenAliens and they rub shoulders with]] [[OurGhostsAreDifferent several kinds of vengeful ghosts,]] [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons,]] and something that can only be described as "[[OlympusMons God's dog.]]"
* The ''VideoGame/RidgeRacer'' games mix realistic vehicle physics and driving physics as well as fantasy symbolism. The later games in the series even have ''exaggerated driving physics which is no means a possible science'' as well as NitroBoost.
* ''VideoGame/RiseOfLegends'' features {{Steampunk}} robots and soldiers fighting Genies and and magicians. [[spoiler: That is, until the Alien Gods show up.]]
* ''[[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/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.
* ''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 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.
* 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.
* The ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' franchise. The series has always been a big fan of robots, and machinery and has also dabbled in time travel, alternate dimensions, aliens, and artificial life-form creation but it also contains many supernatural elements like the Chaos Emeralds and ancient gods. In fact, while Sonic usually starts out in GreenHillZone, the most common level types are [[MetropolisZone cities]] and [[TempleOfDoom ancient ruins]].
* ''VideoGame/SpaceStation13'' fits into this category pretty squarely. On one hand, it takes place upon a highly technologically advanced space station some 500 years into the future, with spaceships, lasers, cyborgs, aliens and generally the standard run-of-the-mill science fiction elements common to most space settings. On the other hand, some of the factions out to destroy the station or otherwise cause general mayhem to its crew members include murderous demon cults and the Space Wizard Federation, who both employ different kinds of magic to achieve their goals. While not all rounds feature said roles, the ones that do tend to become very weird indeed.
* The ''VideoGame/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!]]
* The ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros Super Mario]]'' games are set in a [[Main/MagicalLand magical land]] where [[FunnyAnimals funny animals]], castles, a monarchy, and cute monsters collide with modern technology, aliens, robots, time machines, and space travel.
* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' starts with you fending off zombies, skeletons, and floating eyes with swords and bows. Then you start finding guns lying around. And then meteors start falling from the sky, from which you can craft PoweredArmor, [[LaserBlade phase swords]], and [[RayGun ray guns]]. Said power armor also boosts your magic damage, so you can run around as a space wizard (or fly around with rocket boots) pretty quickly.
* ''VideoGame/TormentTidesOfNumenera'' is the spiritual sequel to ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'', and is based on Monte Cook's ''Numenera'' tabletop game (mentioned above). The far-future post-apocalyptic 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/{{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.
* Similarly, the primarily high fantasy ''VideoGame/{{Ultima}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{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 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.
* ''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.
** In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' 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 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.
* Much like its [[Literature/TheWitcher source material]], ''VideoGame/TheWitcher'' series, while thematically planted quite firmly in a fantasy setting, nevertheless uses some subtle {{Magitek}} and some [[AnachronismStew very anachronistic scientific concepts and ideas]], considering the otherwise [[MedievalStasis Middle-Ages level of the setting]]. For instance, genetics are not only understood but can be manipulated by both alchemy and magic. Microbiology for similar reasons is also well-studied by wizards and other learned folk, and pathology is a common medical discipline. Magical constructs, such as golems, operate on the magical equivalent of computer programming, and magicians, wizards and sorceresses make use of devices that aren't all that dissimilar from telephones and webcams to communicate with each other.
* 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.
* ''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 concludes with [[spoiler: a flashback to when their world was created by two scientists from our world trying to create a new one, destroying their own in the process and turning them into the two titans and their computer system into the Monado]].

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/MattNDusty'' is this mixed with Main/WorldOfWeirdness and 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 RobotWar for centuries, and to top everything else off, Interdimensional Jack Benny as Father Time.
* Creator/{{RoosterTeeth}}'s ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is this but without space travel, featuring (among other things) characters with magical abilities, robots, airships, and smartphones called "Scrolls".

* ''Webcomic/{{Archipelago}}'' contains a society with witch doctors, bird spirits, undead pirates, sharkmen, living books, ancient demigods, dragons, and ancient magical legacies, all built on the back of a fallen dragon ... by which they mean [[ColonyDrop an ancient spaceship]]. The bird spirits are corrupted AIs; the undead pirate is kept alive through the use of [[{{Cyborg}} cybernetics]]; the sharkmen are genetically-engineered super soldiers; and the magic is implied to be [[SufficientlyAdvancedTechnology all-pervading nanotechnology]].
* ''Webcomic/BrokenSpace'' ([[http://brokenspacecomic.com site]]) features aliens, demons, clockwork, [[SteamPunk steam-power]], magicians, guns, swords, strange Magitek weapons, and divinely powered starships.
* The ''Crushed'' subseries of ''Webcomic/{{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/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' has both magic and futuristic technology, and combinations of the two.
* Webcomic/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/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/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. [[ILoveNuclearPower It also mutates creatures into monsters and can be used as a power source]]), 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".
* ''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/{{Iothera}}'' is a science fantasy with a lot of {{Magitek}}.
* ''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/TheMansionOfE'' features robots along with magic.
* ''Webcomic/MegaTokyo'' has both light fantasy elements (mostly {{Magical Girl}}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.
* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'' is set in a post-apocalyptic world with various remnants of modern technology in which TheMagicCameBack and the PlagueZombie creatures are closer to fantasy monsters than to standard undead.
* ''Webcomic/QuentynQuinnSpaceRanger'' is a sequel to ''Webcomic/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.
* 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 ''[[AC:[[RecycledINSPACE IN SPACE!!!]]]]''
* ''Webcomic/TheWaterPhoenixKing'' takes place in a dying universe with fantastic races and features from scifi, such as each species having it's own "technology" which could be nearly anything including forms of "magic"; in the instance of humanity, a poorly made martial-arts style and propaganda tool tied to an overbearing god. Who eventually dies, leaving humans at a huge disadvantage while other species still have access to more useful tech like steam-power or sorcery.
* ''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.
* ''Knuckle Up'', a spinoff of ''WebComic/{{Rascals}}'', is about an interstellar BountyHunter who gets hit with a GenderBender spell by the local IneptMage. One of his crewmembers is a purple, shapeshifting dragon.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* 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.
* 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.
* ''Blog/LimyaaelsFantasyRants'' has tips for writing [[http://limyaael.livejournal.com/577404.html science fiction/fantasy hybrids.]]
* ''Podcast/MetamorCity'' is a LayeredMetropolis inhabited by humans [[PettingZooPeople transformed]] [[AgeRegression by a]] [[SexShifter regional]] [[Literature/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 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.
* 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.
* ''TabletopGame/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.
* ''WebVideo/TitansgraveAshesOfValkana'' takes place in a world where science and magic explicitly intermingle. There was even a holy war fought over the issue. The characters include a street performer with a robot companion, a wizard/priest and a cyborg warrior
* ''Franchise/TailsFromTheFederation''
** ''Literature/BloodyCutlass'' is a SpinOff of ''Literature/SpacePirateCaptainMacTaggart'' that places emphasis on the science fantasy elements more than its parent series did.
* While ''Podcast/TheAdventureZone'' starts out as full D&D HighFantasy, later arcs shift more towards this. It's a story about magic, [[ArtifactOfDoom Artifacts of Doom]], wizards, castles, and dwarves wielding giant hammers - while at the same time containing elevators, colonies on the moon, robots, aliens, interdimensional space travel, and [[AnachronismStew Costco]].

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has goblins, futuristic robots, princesses, wizards, hologram projectors, magic, and mini-anti-gravity chambers. All in a post-apocalyptic Earth.
* ''Franchise/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' uses an interesting take on this trope. The [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender first series]] was very much set in a {{Fantasy}} world, with only one faction having any substantial industrial/SteamPunk elements. 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 with coming something like [[DieselPunk Diesel[punk] ]] (especially by the time of Book 4). Essentially, ''Avatar'' shows what happens when a {{Fantasy}} setting breaks its MedievalStasis.
* In ''WesternAnimation/BarbieStarLightAdventure'', while the setting is the futuristic planet of Para-Den, the story beats are that of a fantasy quest.
* The ''Frnachise/{{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/{{Centurions}}'' was a ScienceFiction series, filled with TechnologyPorn and set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture. On top of that, the writers introduced {{Dracula}}, [[KingArthur Merlin]], a HotWitch and her EvilTwin [[TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry sister]], an army of [[{{Mummy}} mummies]], {{Atlantis}}, PsychicPowers and accidental TimeTravel into various episodes.
* ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' is a surreal comedy-horror cartoon about a talking dog who regularly encounters all kinds of weird sci-fi/fantasy villains, monsters, and other weird characters; including other talking animals, aliens, demons, robots, ghosts, zombies, wizards, mad scientists, etc.
* ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' is another example of a series which often combines elements of fantasy and science fiction. The extent to which this happens varies from episode to episode. Some are very much rooted in science fiction, though most of these still contain some fantasy elements. With others, such as "The Carnival of Doctor Kalihari" or "Dracula's Potion", the fantasy element dominates.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' takes place in a modern setting and features fairies, genies, Greek gods, elves, monsters, and leprechauns as well as aliens, a kid genius, robots, and time travel.
* ''{{WesternAnimation/Gargoyles}}'' has laser weapons, robots, cyborgs, mutants, gods, fairies, ghosts, as well as various other mythological creatures (which obviously includes the titular gargoyles, of course). One episode even featured an alien soldier from outer space, who is never seen again.
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is about a titular town filled with paranormal activity of both fantasy and sci-fi origin.
* Downplayed in ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'', an UrbanFantasy show that was heavy on magic, and thus is mostly fantasy. Though given the modern setting, some science fiction elements sneaked in.
** For example, the government agency Section 13 possessed some advanced and futuristic technology, such as laser weaponry and a time machine.
** One episode revealed that Stonehenge [[spoiler:is a landing pad for flying saucers, of implied extraterrestrial origin]].
* Similar to its ''Franchise/DuelMasters'' inspiration, ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaijudo}}'' is pretty much a mix of sci-fi and fantasy aesthetics and tropes. It is overall a UrbanFantasy tale, involving a mystical parallel universe, spells and fantastical creatures... that can be manipulated through power gloves, are strongly technologically advanced, with the [[LightEmUp light]] ones being living, sapient robots, and the villain is pretty much a MadScientist.
* Being the girl who can do anything, WesternAnimation/KimPossible has dealt with enemies of every genre: spy, mutant, robot, magic, alien, superhero, even pirate.
* ''Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse'' in its various incarnations always includes high technology and powerful magic.
* The ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode "Nerds of a Feather" featured a war between fans of the science fiction genre (led by Baljeet) and fans of the fantasy genre (led by Buford), with Phineas and Ferb caught in the middle. They managed to end the feud by having both sides team up against a hologram of a mystical creature armed with weapons.
* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' is more focused on the sci-fi elements like aliens, robots, cybernetics and interdimensional travel, but is also set in a world where the Devil, vampires, serial killers residing in dreams and even one of heroes from Vindicators what summons Ghost trains to exist. Some other dimensions, like the one, depicted in "Meseeks and Destroy," are fantasy worlds within a generally science-fiction influence multiverse.
* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' involves a titular samurai warrior wielding a magic sword, who gets thrown through a time portal into the far future. During his ongoing quest to destroy a powerful shapeshifting demon who rules this world with an iron fist, he repeatedly encounters other warriors, sorcerers, demons, monsters, aliens, robots, etc. in an anachronistic world where the past meets the future.
* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' the Crystal Gems are currently three [[spoiler: later five]] [[TheAgeless ageless]] magical beings that defend humanity, but they're also aliens which that also reveal later are technically AI for their personality traits and their existence from thousands of years ago with advanced technology to boot.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003'' you got 4 mutant humanoid turtles who do ninjitsu, and battle ninjas, robots, aliens, and inter-dimensional creatures to boot.
* ''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/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 match.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' takes place in a universe full of a variety of different from animal people, elves, plant people, and a race of greedy old people, it also has the titular base of magic that's also the life force of all living things, gods and demons, and even reincarnation. On the Science Fiction side, it has aliens, laser weaponry, time travel, and robots.
* ''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/{{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.
* ''WesternAnimation/ObanStarRacers'' is a SpaceOpera with some fantasy elements, like Aika's magic (which is explicitly referred as such) and the God-like Avatar.

* [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disneyland]], wherein fairy tale castles and {{Funny Animal}}s exist side by side with futuretech exhibits.
* The Franchise/EvilliousChronicles, a dark multi-media series heavy on magic and science fiction technology. This is epitomized by the kingdom of Levianta, where they carried out a project to impregnate a woman with the souls of a god and then raise them in scientific test tubes. After the kingdom's fall, much of the chronological series is almost strictly magic, even featuring sorcerers in medieval civilizations--until the rest of the world starts developing technology again and the lines once again become muddled. That's not even mentioning the odd machines used in the series' versions of heaven and hell.
