* In ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', the eponymous villain and the Four Horsemen are debated by Agent Moira [=MacTaggert=] and Alex Summers. Did he take the idea from the Bible... or did the Bible take the idea from him?

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' has a few examples. In order of appearance, we have:
** The ''[[HordeOfAlienLocusts Evronians]]'', of all aliens, having first visited Earth about ten thousands years in the past and visiting multiple times until we became suitable for conquest.
** In Urk's parallel universe an unspecified alien race, strongly hinted to be the Evronians of that universe, visited Earth at some point in the distant past, [[BenevolentPrecursors giving advanced and eco-friendly technologies to the populations of the American continent and teaching them how to live in peace]] while still being able to defend themselves by invasion of the Vikings (who, by the time they discover America, have advanced to technological levels slightly superior to those of late 20th century Earth by themselves).
** Back when the dinosaurs roamed the planet, Earth became the battlefield of two advanced alien races, now apparently extinct. One of them, forced to leave in the face of an invasion with overwhelming strength, left around a MindControl device that brainwashed the dinosaurs into attacking their enemies [[spoiler: and, [[RagnarokProofing after surviving under Duckburg for over 65 million years]] brainwashed Rupert into attacking Paperinik, as his costume happens to resemble the uniforms of the aliens]].
** It's hinted that both the Xerbians and the Coronans have visited Earth at multiple points in the past, as shown when the Xerbian refugee starship ''Antra'' set course specifically to Earth to warn them about the Evronian threat ([[ShaggyDogStory not knowing there was already an Evronian invasion force there]] ''[[ShaggyDogStory and]]'' [[ShaggyDogStory they had an Evronian infiltrator on board]]) and [[spoiler:Everett Ducklair choosing Earth as his refuge]].

* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' reveals [[spoiler:that the Biblical creation story is apparently more true than anyone would have guessed. Some manner of SufficientlyAdvancedAlien species manipulated evolution to create the human race "in [their] image" to serve as slave labor, and used the so-called [[AppliedPhlebotinum "Pieces of Eden"]] to control them. Two humans (funnily enough named Adam and Eve) stole one of the Pieces (referred to as the "Apple of Eden" or "the Apple") and fled the city with it. This led to a war between the humans and the godlike aliens that waged until a global extinction event wiped out most life on Earth. The surviving humans rebuilt and "truth became myth" (i.e. the memories of the First Civilization became the various religious mythologies of the world). It's also implied that the Assassins are descendants of a union between a human and a member of the First Civilization, which would explain their nigh-supernatural abilities and immunity to the Pieces of Eden. The Templars are revealed to have been forging skeletons of evolutionary links between humans and other simians, including the famous "Lucy"]]

* This is also the {{backstory}} of the Pretenders in ''TransformersSuperGodMasterforce''. Things like the pyramids and Nazca lines were originally made to seal away the Decepticon Pretenders.

* A borderline example: in the MarvelUniverse, the Sphinx was a time machine created by Rama-Tut, a human time traveler from an alternate timeline's future.

** Virtually every culture's gods or mythic figures (right up to Myth/KingArthur) have, in the course of the show, been revealed to be inspired or co-opted by aliens of one form or another. Mostly, they were the Goa'uld, which began as the Egyptian gods and spread from there, though the benevolent Asgard were the [[Myth/NorseMythology Norse gods]], and [[Myth/KingArthur Merlin]] was a SufficientlyAdvancedAlien. The Goa'uld were evicted from Earth several thousand years before the beginning of Christianity, although at least one group of early Christians were transplanted to another world by an unknown party, eventually evolving into a medieval society under the domain of Sokar, who co-opted the image of the Devil for his own purposes.

* The Morrigi from the ''VideoGame/SwordOfTheStars'' expansion ''A Murder of Crows'' apparently inspired the legends of dragons, feathered serpents and angels in humanity due to visiting our world thousands of years ago. When viewed from space, the lights of their cities form giant glyphs, resembling the Nazca Lines and Crop Circles, implying that these were inspired by the Morrigi as well.

* The Morrigi from the ''SwordOfTheStars'' expansion, ''A Murder of Crows'' are several meter long "feathered serpents," the males of which have a "glamor" effect that makes them look like winged males of whatever species is seeing them.
