* ''Finding Bigfoot'' (not to be confused with the ''Creator/AnimalPlanet'' tv show of the same name) is an early-access ''UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}'' game has a team of hunters looking for and capturing Bigfoot in a national TheOtherRainforest rain forest park after several tourists go missing. Your team finds the tourists, or rather their corpses, and unlike the show you and your team does find Bigfoot...and it's ''pissed''. A humongous beast half as wide as it's tall with glowing green eyes and [[AlienBlood blood]] and will attack any player on sight and worse it likes to use hit and run tactics to keep its hefty mass of hit points up. You aren't safe in the command van because Bigfoot can and will try to kill you through the windows you left open.

Tall hairy humanoids who maintain a furtive existence in various remote corners of the world. "Bigfoot" and "Sasquatch" are different names for essentially the same entity, whose (ahem) stomping grounds are mostly in the [[TheOtherRainforest northwestern corner]] of the United States and the southwestern corner of Canada. The "Yeti" or "Abominable Snowman" is a variety found high in the [[TheShangriLa Himalayan Mountains]], commonly depicted (whether due to associations with familiar Arctic animals like the polar bear, or just the "snowman" association) with white fur in fiction, although the local legends described it with red to brown hair.[[note]]Ironically, Bigfeet have been reported to have white fur, particularly in one sighting in Pennsylvania.[[/note]] Other lesser known varieties turn up in world-wide folklore and history under an assortment of names, such as the "Skunk Ape" of the swamps of the ''[[DeepSouth southeastern]]'' United States.

Common characteristics are said to include an extreme [[GentleGiant shyness towards humans]] ([[NightmareFuel though reports and accounts of extraordinarily hostile encounters do exist]]), emitting horrible odors and unearthly noises, and of course scattering large footprints about as they [[{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}} frolic in out-of-focus areas]]. Most scientific authorities regard these creatures as either [[UrbanLegends entirely imaginary]] or the fabrications of human pranksters, but like [[StockNessMonster lake monsters]] and the {{Chupacabra}} and ''unlike'' "out-and-out" fictional species such as the {{Wendigo}} or TheJerseyDevil, BS&Y have devout believers in their existence. Often speculated to be akin to large, herbivorous hominids such as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bigfoot#Gigantopithecus Gigantopithecus]], or hominins even more closely related to ''us'', such as Neanderthals and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paranthropus ''Paranthropus'']]. More information on Bigfoot can be found at the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bigfoot Other Wiki]].

* One of the stories in ''Literature/{{Haunted 2005}}'', by Creator/ChuckPalahniuk, is titled "Missing Link" and postulates that these creatures are actually humans with an odd genetic quirk causing were-creature-style transformation. The teller of this story belongs to a fictitious Native American tribe in which this trait is allegedly quite common, including a supposed case in the teller's own family.

* Analysis of supposed Yeti hair samples has revealed they actually do come from a mysterious animal unknown to science. However, rather than a primate, the Yeti is apparently a bear. Which raises the question: Do you really need to exaggerate bears into some sort of mythical bogeymen when they're already, you know, ''{{bears|AreBadNews}}?''

* ''Series/TheGoodies'' did an episode spoofing ArthurCClarke's ''Mysterious World''. Tim Brooke-Taylor & Co go into the Canadian Rockies in search of mysterious creatures, only to find that Graham Garden is faking their existence (including the inevitable spoof on the Patterson-Gimlin Film, which is given away by the zipper that Graham has to undo to take a piss). Eventually one of Tim's feet swells up to enormous size due to him constantly walking around steep slopes, and he has to flee into the wild (wearing a furry coat to keep himself warm) to prevent everyone who sees him [[DieLaughing laughing themselves to death]] over the sight of his Big Foot.
