* ''Comicbook/TheFlash'' had a storyline called ''Wonderland'', in which Wally West was trapped in AnotherDimension where Keystone City was a dystopia. Each issue opens with a quote from the ''Alice'' books. He discovers he was trapped there by Mirror Master (they've gone "through the looking glass") at the behest of [[TheManBehindTheMan another vilain]], who turns out to be fairy-tale monarch Brother Grimm. The second half of the story is set in a Grimmified Keystone where things are even more Alice-y, including the Rogues as the Card Soldiers and Linda as the Queen of Hearts.

* Music/JohnLennon was a huge fan of Creator/LewisCarroll. He said that "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" from ''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'' was inspired by the novel. Incidentally, Carroll also appears on the album cover.
* Music/JohnLennon [[WordOfGod mentioned in interviews]] that "I Am The Walrus" from ''Music/MagicalMysteryTour'' is a reference to "The Walrus And The Carpenter", but in retrospect, was embarrassed to learn that the hero of the poem was supposed to be the carpenter.

Added DiffLines:

* Issue #9 of ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'' is absolutely ''saturated'' with Alice In Wonderland references - appropriate, given that Tokyo after the Filth Bomb is meant to beyond the norm even by Secret World standards: the issue's lore begins with quotes from the Jefferson Airplane song; the mission to Kaidan begins with players being transported into the Tokyo subways, the rabbit hole of Ground Zero; the first character they meet is [[spoiler: the half-crazed Sarah]], who is also wearing a white-and-blue jacket for good measure; [[LadyOfWar Gozen]] of the [[{{Samurai}} Jingu Clan]] is a stand-in for the Duchess, and even has a violently aggressive cook on the payroll; lore entries actually call the enigmatic, perpetually-grinning [[MagnificentBastard Daimon Kiyota]] as "a Cheshire Cat in sharp lapels"; [[CloudCuckooLander Yuichi]] is instantly recognized by his distinctive "space hat," and spends his days in an objectiveless haze of paranoia and online gaming with his hyperactive sister Harumi - making them obvious stand-ins for the Mad Hatter and the March Hare. And of course, half the issue is spent following the trail of a mysterious assassin dressed in an oversized rabbit mask - often referred to as "The White Rabbit"!

Added DiffLines:

* The second game of ''VideoGame/AzureStrikerGunvolt'' features villains in FairytaleMotif, and one villain [[spoiler:(The main villain, even)]] sports AliceAllusion, starting from her blond hair topped with HairDecoration that looks like rabbit ears and goes on from there.

* The ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' modules ''EX1 Dungeonland'' and ''EX2 The Land Beyond the Magic Mirror'', are "D&D-ified" versions of the ''Alice'' books. (The Mock Turtle becomes a dragon turtle, the "monstrous crow" is a roc, etc.)

** The 5th edition module ''Out of the Abyss'' draws inspiration from Wonderland for its presentation of the Underdark. Although no direct references are made, the Foreward for the module credits it as one its the primary inspirations.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/TheStrongestSuit'', whose main characters are anthropomorphized playing cards, purposefully avoids this for the most part (for instance, the Queen of Hearts is a withdrawn, not-at-all-homicidal background character), but the appearance of the Cards ''does'' somewhat resemble that which the ''Alice'' Cards took in the [[Disney/AliceInWonderland 1951 adaptation]], as can the idea of Spades as lowly workers oppressed by the noble warrior Hearts.

** Alice is a [[TheOjou spoiled]] little girl under the care of the [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Baron in Black and the Count in Red]]. She's actually a powerful DarkMagicalGirl who CameBackWrong and the two nobles are [[ArsGoetia Belial and Nebiros]], powerful demons who turn innocent people into undead to make sure they won't leave Alice. She returns frequently in many sequels and spin-offs, start since ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiII'' as a BonusBoss.

* "Storytime" by Music/{{Nightwish}}:
-->''I am the journey\\
I am the destination\\
I am the home, the tale that reads you\\
A way to taste the night\\
The elusive high\\
Follow the madness Alice you know once did''

* Arisu Tachibana in ''VideoGame/TheIdolmasterCinderellaGirls'' is implied to be named after Alice, though she thinks it's childish and would usually prefer people call her on a LastNameBasis. The radio drama track of her CD single is indeed called "Arisu in Wonderland", where she is persuaded into saying dialogue like a fairy tale for a concert with [[MoonRabbit Nana]].
