* 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.

** 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.

* ''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.
