* A commercial promo for [[Creator/SciFiChannel Syfy]] has a lot of weird stuff going on inside a house, with one of them being a football pass among three people in a setting based on that painting.

* ''VideoGame/SagaFrontier'': Appropriately for the master of Space magic, Kylin's domain is full of AlienGeometries, [[http://lparchive.org/SaGa-Frontier/Update%2020/Apr%2013%202007%2009-54-24PM.jpg one room in particular]] that is extremely evocative of Escher's art style.

* ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'': The [[DavidBowie Goblin King's]] final chamber was clearly based on this, and Sarah has a print of Relativity in her room.

* ''Webcomic/QuantumVibe'' has [[Creator/AEVanVogt The Weapon Shop]] of [[{{Pun}} Escher]]. [[http://www.quantumvibe.com/strip?page=573 See it here]]. Justified in that it's on a low-gravity asteroid so the local gravity can be manipulated easily.

* An episode of ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' concludes with a fake show-within-a-show involving the character Kaere as a HotTeacher. Since she's teaching geometry, she's shown strolling through several famous Escher works.
* The first time we meet the Godhand in ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', they're in a ''Relativity''-esque dimension filled with multidirectional staircases and a shot that resembles ''Another World''.

* ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}'' has the "Escher Vault," which is a room constructed like ''Relativity'', which is constantly changing at high speed. You need special equipment of [[SuperSpeed one kind]] or [[GogglesDoSomethingUnusual another]] to get through it. According to Mrs. Frederic, at least one Warehouse Agent has gotten lost in the room because they forgot to wear safety goggles when venturing inside and hasn't been seen since.
** It's called the Escher Vault because the man himself was an architect on that iteration of the Warehouse. His initial design involved it folding up like a tesseract and the model of it is artifact.

* ''VideoGame/{{Echochrome}}'' is a puzzle game based on the works of M. C. Escher. The [[AlienGeometries geometries]] are as weird as you might expect.
** To elaborate, in the game, you are allowed to "cheat" the laws of perspective because only the camera angle's perspective counts as "real". If there is a beam covering up a hole, the hole [[LogicBomb then ceases to exist.]] This is a necessary skill to guide the main character[[note]]You control the camera, not the player character[[/note]] to safety.

* In ''Webcomic/TalesOfTheQuestor'', one part of the Castle of Tir Na Nog in the [[TheFairFolk Fae]] realm resembled Escher's [[{{Bizarrchitecture}} famous stairway room]]. It becomes hilarious when a human boy [[http://www.rhjunior.com/tales-of-the-questor-0514/ subjected to it]] promptly loses his lunch.
