** ''Film/TheLincolnLawyer'' was a film about a notable case the title character, ''Literature/MickeyHaller'''s, was involved in, making it BasedOnATrueStory InUniverse. The book spawned dozens of imitators and the courthouse he frequents becomes littered with Lincoln Town cars.

* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' reveals that the beings of the Literature/CthulhuMythos were simply members of alien races, and in particular one Nyarlathotepian told Creator/HPLovecraft stories from space that he turned into the Mythos. However, it's unclear just how accurate the stories are; the series remains vague as to whether or not title character is '''the''' Nyarlathotep or simply a member of the same race with the same name and a vastly different personality.

* In a bit of a TakeThat, the ''TabletopGame/HeavyGear'' RPG showcases that the ''WesternAnimation/HeavyGear'' cartoon exists InUniverse and the many, ''many'' things that it got wrong from the RPG universe were the result of some misguided attempt at using it as a propaganda piece.

* Played with in ''Literature/TheLaundrySeries'': despite the fact Bob Howard lives in a world where {{Eldritch Abomination}}s are expected to destroy the world any day now, and the government has a peace treaty with the Deep Ones, he's clear that the works of Creator/HPLovecraft should ''not'' be considered factual. They're closer to reality than most people realise, but HPL was writing fiction, not history. Mostly.

** This come back in the ''second' movie, which has a fairly large rewriting of the story [[spoiler:because a good chunk of the plot in the series was driven by a high-ranking DAB officer gone WellIntentionedExtremist.]] One shudders to think of what this means for [=StrikerS=]...

* The manga version of ''ChronoCrusade'' hints at this--a few chapters at the end "quote" from [[MysteriousWaif Azmaria's]] memoirs, hinting that the manga may be a fictionalized version of her book.
