* Similar to the ''Silent Hill'' example above, ''EternalDarkness'' seems to really like 3:33. Alex is woken up at 3:33. The clock in the main hall of the mansion? Stopped at 3:33. And it should come as no surprise that when you find a puzzle involving a clock, it has to be set to... yep, 3:33.

* ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'' has, for [[FreudWasRight obvious reasons]], the number 69. Duke's penthouse is on the 69th floor of the casino, the Devastator holds 69 rockets, and as of the ending, [[spoiler:Duke is running for 69th President.]]

* Barely an episode of the third season of ''AshesToAshes'' goes by without 6-6-2-0 showing up. [[spoiler: It turns out to be the collar number Gene was wearing when he was killed.]]

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Used in-universe in the Seven Kingdoms with the Faith of the Seven, worshiped primarily in the south. There are seven gods, seven Kingsguards, seven hells, etc. Perhaps by coincidence, the soundtrack to the second season trailer is "Seven Devils" by Florence and the Machine.

*** Then they took it to an even greater extreme with the UpdatedRerelease of the games on [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 PS3]]/[[UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 PS4]] and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsIII''. Adding up every "numbered" Kingdom Hearts game (1, 2, 1.5, 2.5, 2.8, 0.2, and 3) comes out to, you guessed it, 13.

To the ancient Hebrews, 3 represented consistency. Thus the prophet Isaiah's [[HeroicBSOD freakout]] when [[http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah%206:%201-7&version=NKJV he found himself in the throne room of God with angels saying]]: [[RuleOfThree Holy, holy, holy]] is the [[{{God}} LORD]] of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory! because it meant that God was consistently holy while Isaiah . . . [[HumansAreFlawed wasn't]].[[note]] That line is considered so important to Judaism that it is chanted twice or more per day during the Kedusha prayer.[[/note]] Keeping this in mind, we also know that 7 represented the "perfect number" to many cultures at the time, including the Jews. The number ''6'', therefore, was short of perfection; so the number [[{{Satan}} 666]] represented consistent ''im''perfection. [[note]]Which is a coincidence, because mathematicians consider 6 a ''perfect'' number - the smallest such number, being an integer which is the sum of its own factors (other than itself) - 1 + 2 + 3 = 6.[[/note]]

** Apocalyptic prophecies, such as ''[[Literature/BookOfDaniel Daniel]]'' and ''[[Literature/BookOfRevelation Revelation]]'', have a lot of references to a specific period of time variously rendered three and a half years, 42 months, 1260 days, and "time, times, and half a time," which is usually interpreted to be the length of the reign of [[TheAntichrist a terrible end-of-the-world dictator]].

* 618 appears quite a bit in ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' (for example, the street address of the Mystery Shack is 618 Gopher Road). This is because June 18th is creator Alex Hirsch's birthday. A more story-related one is the number 3. The story takes place over the three months of summer, there are three intended seasons to the show, something important happened 30 years ago (three rounds of ten), three [[ApocalypticLog journals]], the ArcSymbol is a triangle...

** When co-creator GregWeisman was asked on [[LineToGod Ask Greg]] about the significance of the number 16 on the show, he replied with "<chuckles evily>". He answered that question on the sixteenth of the month.

** Issues 2500 and 3000 of the Italian ''Mickey Mouse'' comic magazine hve all the stories inside circulating around the respective number. The former features plots such as Scrooge [=McDuck=] celebrating his 2500th billion of dollars and sending Donald 2500 leagues under the sea to get a coin he once lost, or Casey trying to get what's wrong in a fake bill but noticing only at the end that there is no such thing as a 2500 dollars bill, while the latter features Goofy finding 3000 copies of an apparently rare issue 1 of an old comic, the Beagle Boys making a big reunion of all 3000 members around the world and a young Donald Duck trying to contact someone from the year 3000 by modifying an old radio.
