* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' seires and the number 9, most often expressed as a form of "8+1". There are [[OurGodsAreDifferent 9 Divines]] in the [[SaintlyChurch Imperial religion]], comprising 8 conventional gods and 1 [[DeityOfHumanOrigin human who became a god]]. There are traditionally 9 provinces in the Cyrodiilic Empire (Cyrodiil itself and 8 others), and 9 districts and principal cities in the provinces of Skyrim and Cyrodiil (both the capital plus 8 others). The [[OnlyTheChosenMayWield Amulet of Kings]] has 8 small jewels and 1 large jewel. Eight '[[TheTower Towers]]' sustaining the barriers between the realms, and one 'zeroth stone' that is the origin of their power. Even the universe itself is said to be shaped like a wheel with 8 spokes, the '+1' being the solid line made when viewed on it's side.

* "4423" from ''Anime/DennouCoil''. What could it be? A time? A date? [[spoiler:A telephone number? A hospital room number/patient number? [[JapaneseSiblingTerminology A really weird pun?]]]]

* The author of ''{{Fanfic/Warverse}}'' seems to really love 612. Lampshaded at one point, when Christopher McGraw tells [[Franchise/MassEffect Benezia]] "Remind me to talk to you about the cult of six-one-two, fun story, that".

* ''FanFic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'': Six, or multiples thereof, appears a great deal. WordOfGod is that ponies have come to view it as a sacred number.

* Ever since it became the title of their breakthrough album, {{Music/Rush}} has loved the number 2112. It's been the key to unlocking a DVD EasterEgg, the source of many video jokes on their Time Machine Tour, and represents one possible time on the ClockworkAngels clockface (2112 = 9:12 PM in military time).
** There was also 30 during the [=R30=] tour, [[MilestoneCelebration which was in honor of their debut album turning 30 in 2004]]. While it's been more or less [[WordOfGod confirmed by the band]] that there won't be an [=R40=] tour in 2014 since the band is taking a year or two off after wrapping up the 2012-2013 tour in support of ClockworkAngels, some fans have latched onto the idea of an [=R42=] tour (though there have been rumors that the band will be returning to the stage as early as January 2015), and thus have made "42" a significant number in the fandom. [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Remind you of anything?]]

* In shipyards, it's important to keep up with which parts belong to which ship either being built or serviced. Therefore, all ships are assigned a yard number (though letters can also be used, especially in yards that have been around a while), which are stamped onto the parts that belong to that ship. ''401'' can still be made out on one of UsefulNotes/RMSTitanic's propeller blades.

** It has been suggested that Creator/TerryPratchett gave the number fifty-seven a special significance. It certainly crops up a lot when otherwise randomly selected accretions of things need to have a numerical value assigned to them.

* A lot of things in ''The39Clues'' come in groups of 7, and ironically the number 39 is completely meaningless.

* In ''TheHungerGames'', 12. 12 districts, 24 tributes (who become eligible at age 12), training scores of up to 12, 12 arrows in the quiver in the arena, 12 houses in the Victor's Village, 24 [[spoiler: wedding]] dresses designed for Katniss, then voted down to 6, and lightning strikes at midnight and noon in a certain section of the [[spoiler: Quarter Quell arena]], which later becomes important to the plot. Also, in the first book, Prim and Rue were 12 years old, and Rue was one of 6 siblings. And of course, the main characters are from District 12.

* The number '451' (often rendered as '0451') pops up in a ''lot'' of {{Immersive Sim}}s: both ''VideoGame/DeusEx'' and ''VideoGame/SystemShock'' (both of which were Warren Spector's brainchildren), their sequels, as well as ''VideoGame/BioShock1'' (the SpiritualSuccessor to ''System Shock''), its direct sequel ''BioShock 2'' and the follow-up ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'' (where it is literally the only keycode in the game). It also pops up in ''Dishonored'' and ''VideoGame/Dishonored2'' (which are spiritual successors to both ''Thief'' and ''Deus Ex'', made by one of the original developers of ''Deus Ex''). This a reference to the office door code for Looking Glass Software (developer of the original System Shock and Thief games), which is in turn a reference to [[Literature/Fahrenheit451 a certain other dystopian society written about by Ray Bradbury]].

* The number 7 in ''Literature/SeptimusHeap'', "Septimus" means 7 in Latin. The books are about a seventh son of a seventh son, who will have amazing '''Magykal''' powers. Let's just say that if it has to do with magic and/or wizards, and it isn't somehow related to the number 7, it's because it's related to the number 49 (7x7)
