** Although [[NotAnExample not quite true]] for the [[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.

* Creator/NeilGaiman's works:
** ''Literature/GoodOmens'' to Christianity (mostly of a heavily Milton-influenced variety). Its SwitchingPOV protagonists include an angel, a demon, and the Antichrist.
** Literature/AnansiBoys focuses on the concept that West African mythology (and all named spiders and panthers that go along with it) do exist in the modern day. (Unless they're dead.) The protagonist is the son of the trickster spider god Anansi.

* In Creator/RowenAtkinson's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFGrQMD6Uqc "Welcome to Hell"]] he plays the Devil organizing new arrivals. As he splits them off to different groups, he announces "Christians. Ah yes, I'm sorry, I'm afraid the Jews were right."

** ''Literature/Heroes of Olympus'', 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.

* ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'' actually discuss this in their splatbook about demons. It's up to the Storyteller ''which'' religion is true in regard to the myth of demons, as long as the players are cool with it. This is a considerable improvement compared to ''DemonTheFallen'', which says that "demons are based on Christian lore, but the Christian lore of OWOD is not the Christian lore of RealLife".

* ''TabletopGame/{{Scion}}'' normally assumes AllMythsAreTrue; however, the campaign in ''Scion: Ragnarok'' assumes a setting in which only Myth/NorseMythology is real.

** ''Literature/TheKaneChronicles'' to EgyptianMythology. Carter and Sadie Kane run into just about every major Egyptian god in the pantheon. It's a SharedUniverse with ''Percy Jackson'', so while AMythologyIsTrue in the context of each individual work, it becomes a CrossoverCosmology at the meta-level.

***Actually Atlantis, while originally recorded by Plato, was attributed to the Egyptians, making that cross-over valid. The Aesir, less so.
