* In the Creator/RobertEHoward story "Three Bladed Doom", the hero, El Borak, encounters and kills a yeti. Weirdly it's both a kill-crazy monster ''and'' a vegetarian. Also Literature/ConanTheBarbarian has a couple of encounters with "grey apes" that are identical to the yeti in "Three Bladed Doom".

* ''The Bionic Man'', a reimagining of ''Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan'' from Dynamite Comics, reintroduced Bigfoot. This version is still bionic, but a member of a race as opposed to an alien. He can also communicate directly with Steve Austin, telepathically and becomes more of an ally to Steve than the TV version.
