For a literary example, see anything ever written by Robert Rankin. In the Armageddon Trilogy, Elvis Presley is teamed up with the twin sister of Jesus Christ and a time-traveling Brussels sprout with random unlimited superpowers called Barry. In other books, two regular characters meet, amongst many others, space aliens, Sherlock Holmes, time-traveling demons, at least 3 different versions of the Antichrist, the Spice Girls, and Cthulhu. Apparently Robert writes very quickly, and he doesn't believe in editing or correcting anything at all, so continuity tends to go out of the window, as does any kind of logic whatsoever. I don't think you'll find much more of a Fantasy Kitchen Sink than this! Except in Japan, obviously.

I can't believe that Gintama isn't a part of this trope. Samurai, aliens, demons, yakuza, pop idols, hosts, cabaret girls, ninjas, terrorists, cops, shamans, onmyouji, and even Santa Claus. There's probably more too but I think you get the picture.

I nominate Pirates of the Caribbean (3 to be precise)

Despite being in the CARIBBEAN they turn up in the far East... floating in the Pacific Ocean. All so we could have some wise old Buddhist types and some pirates vs ninjas. In fact, pirates vs ninjas should get a reference here somewhere too.
