Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/BlazBlue'' is largely about Myth/JapaneseMythology. In particular, it's established that Amaterasu (aka the Master Unit) is the effective "God" of the verse.

* Lampshaded in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''.
** Although [[NotAnExample not quite true]] for the [[Anime/YuGiOh source material]] itself. Aside from their version of Egyption mythology basically just being the ThemeParkVersion, a filler arc introduces {{Atlantis}}, and later series have, among other things, the Aesir, who are basically the Norse God Cards.
*** Actually Atlantis, while originally recorded by Plato, was attributed to the Egyptians, making that cross-over valid. The Aesir, less so.

->'''Yugi:''' So let me get this straight: According to [[NoFourthWall this show]], the [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Egyptian Gods]] are ''real''.
->'''Shadi:''' Yes.
->'''Yugi:''' But, doesn't that mean that all other religions are wrong? And the hokey Ancient Egypt religion is the only real one?
->'''Shadi:''' Yes.
->'''Yugi:''' Huh. [[DidntSeeThatComing Didn't see THAT one coming.]]
->'''Shadi:''' ''I'' did!

* The first seven ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'' games are in a setting based on Myth/ClassicalMythology. WordOfGod said fairly early on that the world in total has a CrossoverCosmology, it just wasn't until the eighth game introduced a Myth/NorseMythology that we actually saw such.

** ''Literature/HeroesOfOlympus'', the SequelSeries, blends in Roman mythology, introducing the Roman alter egos of the Greek Gods and Camp Jupiter, a Roman parallel to Camp Half-Blood.

** ''Literature/BringMeTheHeadOfPrinceCharming'' (co-authored by RobertSheckley), to Christianity -- or its ThemeParkVersion. Mostly PlayedForLaughs.

* Creator/JRRTolkien's early drafts of ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', published in ''Lost Tales I&II'', are a clever inversion of this: Through a series of events and battles that are echoed mainly in Norse and Finnish mythology [[spoiler: Middle-Earth becomes our world. Tol Eressëa becomes England, Kortirion especially is identified as Warwick, and Elves still exist. The tales that Ælfwine/Eriol is told are the true pre-history of the world and later fictionalized among humans.]] This was toned down significantly to the point of near-abandonment in later drafts, though the fading of the Elves and the gradual dominion of humans remains a prevalent theme. Also impossible to get rid of completely: Some cunning linguists pointed out that a huge number of Tolkien's Eldarin word roots are built to act as predecessors of reconstructed Indo-European, theoretically transporting the idea of early humans using language they were taught by the Elves into the real world. See Faramir's quote on all speech of the world being Elvish in origin.
