* ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'[='s=] CrossoverCosmology means that all of its games have this to some extent, with Thor, Lucifer, YHVH, Shiva, Cerberus, etc. all existing in the same time. However, the ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'' sub-series might fit this trope the most because it's the most mundane and closest to current Earth in term of setting and mythology. People are aware of the legends and often discuss it if the topic is brought up, but only a select few are aware that those gods are exist and can be summoned. Since this particular verse, especially in ''VideoGame/Persona2'', operates on ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve, if a rumor circulates and people en masse come to believe it, it will without fail become reality. And since mythology exists in the first place as a belief, you do the math. The exact mechanics of it vary depending on the particular work, but the basics are the same.

** ''Persona 2'': It's even a [[SlidingScaleOfGameplayAndStoryIntegration Gameplay and Story Integration]]! Rumor will comes true because of AnthropomorphicPersonification of both good and bad side of humanity decided to make a bet over humanity's survival. A ramen shop turns out to be a secret weapon cache? AncientAstronauts? Hitler's still alive and amassing army? All can happen and it does happen, depending on how you spread the rumor.
** ''Persona 3'': A local [[TheEndIsNigh apocalypse cult]] that worship a Goddess of Death gains power and influence among public, which then empowers said Goddess of Death into granting them said apocalypse. Also, your school nurse's rambling about Tarot Arcana is true through Social Link.
** ''Persona 4'': The Midnight Channel, a television channel that only appears in a rainy midnight hour will foresight your future soulmate. The second part isn't exactly true; the channel only shows a person the audience wants to see. Within the channel, a Shadow of that person will take form of what the audience wants to see combined with what said person actually is. If that person is rumored to be a man when she's actually insecure and hiding her gender, the Shadow has its appearance twisted and takes form of a genderbender.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': Jack's sword was forged by the gods Odin, Ra, and Vishnu, from Norse, Egyptian, and Hindu mythology, respectively, and another episode, "Jack and the Swamp Monster," mentions the existence of Cronus and Zeus, both of Greek mythology.
** It seems like only things that are myth or legend only in-universe may be untrue, like that a giant talking worm will grant wishes.

* Invoked in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''. There are four pantheons worshiped in different parts of the world, mirroring the real-life pantheons. The Northern Gods include Thor, Loki, Odin, Hel, and so on from Norse mythology, the Southern Gods are the 12 animals of the zodiac from Chinese mythology, and the Western Gods are the traditional D&D gods: Marduk, Tiamat, etc. There is no mention made of Greek Gods (despite having been used in D&D material in 3.5e) until [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0273.html Shojo reveals that they were the lost Eastern pantheon]], having been killed off by [[Main/BigBad the Snarl]]. Despite the existence of these four, seemingly contradictory pantheons, the afterlife used is a slightly modified version of the standard D&D afterlife, as is the existence of other planes (including the elemental planes of air, water, etc, and the baffling semi-elemental plane of ranch dressing). Furthermore, the creation story (explained in the linked comic and four strips afterwards) is entirely new, using none of the pantheon's creation stories and instead being entirely new.
** Furthermore, the comic uses the standard D&D practice of borrowing from a ''wide'' variety of stories. Traditional D&D monsters like Owlbears, mind flayers, and Beholders all appear (however briefly), as well as the standard fantasy races like orcs, goblins, lizardfolk, elves, halflings, gnomes, dwarves, and so on, as well as monsters such as vampires, zombies, wights, skeletons, liches, and golems. Bizarrely, [[Main/EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs dinosaurs also appear]], not as a relative to dragons, but as actual, real-life dinosaurs. Nobody questions this. The only fantasy creature that hasn't shown up yet are leprechauns: they have been mentioned several times (once by Belkar, who at the time was wildly sick), but never shown, and Thog's ridiculous leprechaun costume seems to indicate that they may be a myth in-universe.

* In Matthew Laurence's ''{{Literature/Freya}}'' series, this is completely true for gods, and ''only'' gods. The only magical creatures and items in the world are those associated with or created by these deities, so unless a god decides to make a vampire, there won't be any.

** Dream is seen interacting with Greek deities, Satan himself, the cast of ''Theater/AMidsummerNightsDream'' among many others. In one comic, Daniel Hall wanders into the Dreaming and encounters Eve, Cain and Abel. They each tell him a story, Eve tells a slightly altered version of the Book of Genesis, and Abel tells the biblical story of Cain and Abel. When Matthew the raven asks if they are the actual biblical figures, and how their life stories are supposed to fit in with the Big Bang and evolution, Abel says "Well... this wasn't exactly Earth..." before Cain cuts him off.
