** In ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'', we meet an avatar of the Akashic Record itself, in the form of [[spoiler:Shiki Ryougi's "third personality"]]. Because it is the embodiment of Akasha, it is both [[TheOmnipotent omnipotent]] and [[TheOmniscient omniscient]], but it is also absolutely neutral in all things, neither doing anything nor desiring anything. It only briefly revealed itself to one person, for unclear reasons, and even its "host" is unaware that it exists.

* Referenced frequently in ''Manga/OyasumiPunpun'' by Pegasus, and evidently the source of his supposed precognition.

* Referenced heavily in the Franchise/{{Nasuverse}} through various means, typically as 'Akasha' or 'The Origin'. Implied to be what most (if not all) magi work towards in their studies, either consciously or not. Those who succeed become Sorcerers, capable of magic that is otherwise utterly impossible, such as TimeTravel and [[AlternateUniverse accessing alternate realities]]. The Grail in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' can be used to open a gate to Akasha [[spoiler:[[PoweredByAForsakenChild by sacrificing all seven Servants]].]] Also, one of the main characters is [[spoiler:[[AnthropomorphicPersonification an avatar of sorts]] for the Record (Ryougi Shiki from ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai.'')]]

* Creator/JorgeLuisBorges' "Literature/TheLibraryOfBabel" takes this idea to its most literal extreme. The library contains every possible arrangement of letters, spaces, and punctuation that will fit in a 410-page book. Unfortunately, too much information is just as bad as no information at all - the inhabitants of the library have no way to index the books. In theory, a true index is hiding in one of the books, but so are millions of false indexes.

* In ''ArTonelico'', the Akashic Record is a rare item that is supposed to be like a CD for a 3D holographic projector, but since the technology for using it properly has been lost, it's only used now for crafting.
** And in its prequel series Surge Concerto, it's been explicitly stated once by the creators that accessing the Seven Dimensions (Space, Time, Possibilities, Qualia and World) that form its world setting is pretty much like perusing the Akashic Records of that universe.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' has a couple of spells interacting with the Akashic Record, described as "the extraplanar repository of all experiences that have ever occurred". The most amusing is the 9th-level psychic-only spell Akashic Form, which allows you to edit the Akashic Record to make a perfect record of your physical body at the time the spell is cast that lasts for 24 hours, allowing you to come back from the dead exactly as you were (with equipment if you decide to appear where you died, without if you decide to appear farther away).

* In ''Webcomic/AutumnBay'', sorcerers can access the Akashic Record. In fact, if they aren't careful, or are inexperienced, it is possible that they get lost inside their own personal "bubble" ([[http://autumnbaycomics.com/comics/51/ this happens to Ghoul]] as part of his TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening).
