* Interestingly, quite a bit on the {{Mario}} games, such as certain fortresses in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3''. Given the ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' roots, little wonder.

* The black and white checkerboard floor found in all Masonic lodges.

* The black and white checkerboard floor found floors in all Masonic lodges.lodges: actually an [[InvertedTrope inversion]], since it symbolizes the material, mundane world, in which light and darkness, good and evil, matter and spirit, are jumbled together.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': there's a notable creepy checkerboard ground in the scenes where the mane cast confront the villain Discord on his throne during part two of the season 2 premiere. Because of [[RealityWarper Discord]], all of Ponyville had effectively been turned into an EldritchLocation.
** In the comics, a map included in one issue has a similar design for the site of where a battle with Discord was once held long ago.
