* The Icemen of the ''Literature/CodexAlera'' are not Yetis, but are largely analogous to them, being furry, bulky, apelike humanoids who live in the far north and all. They're not normally aggressive, but they ''are'' powerfully empathic- picking up on humans' initial wariness of them and transmitting it back magnified ended up resulting in centuries of literally meaningless war between the two races [[spoiler: until Isana, herself TheEmpath, managed to get things ironed out]].

** A couple of yetis have also appeared in the plane of Tarkir, specifically in the Tibet-inspired Temur Frontier, where they've been shown as bearing horns and being hunted by dragons.

** Another yeti-like Pok&cute;mon, Crabominable, debuts in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon''. It's a yeti/crab hybrid, being a literal take on "yeti crab". It evolves when the normally just crab-like Crabrawler is leveled up while on Alola's highest mountain.

* In the Literature/{{Discworld}} novel ''Discworld/ThiefOfTime'', our heroes encounter a yeti. It's a kind of [[AllTrollsAreDifferent troll]], with thick fur. Since trolls are made of rock, this is hinted to be the insulating material stone-wool. Yetis are hunted for their huge feet and hands, and as a result, they evolved the ability to save their progress to load it should they die, which the met yeti demonstrates by being beheaded. [[spoiler:Lu-Tze successfully uses the ability later in the book.]] To date, they went extinct thrice.

** There's a Discworld footnote about incompetent aliens ''trying'' to abduct humans, only to accidentally keep abducting other aliens with similar intentions. In the end, they get together to compare notes ... and discover that the only ''real'' Earthling they've managed to acquire is Bigfoot.
* Literature/TheDresdenFiles: Harry Dresden encounters Yeti-like creatures in ''Literature/ProvenGuilty'' after storming Arctis Tor. In ''Literature/{{Skin Game}}'', the muscle for the heist is provided by the Genoskwa, described by Harry as Bigfoot's serial killer cousin. And more directly, one sasquatch named [[NameThatUnfoldsLikeLotusBlossom Strength of a River in His Shoulders]] (River Shoulders for short) hires Harry to help his half-human son in the trilogy of short stories, "B is for Bigfoot," "I was a Teenage Bigfoot," and "Bigfoot on Campus." The Bigfoot species, more properly known as the Forest People, are highly intelligent, powerfully magical, and skilled at keeping to themselves, which is why {{muggles}} only know them as rumors. It's not clear what race or species the Genoskwa belongs to, but he does ''not'' like being compared to "flower-chewing groundhog-lovers'' like the Forest People.

* Number 1000 of the Wiki/SCPFoundation is Bigfoot, though the species is presented a bit differently from how it normally is. [[spoiler:They were once the dominant species on the planet and much more technologically advanced than we are even now, until we massacred most of them and destroyed their technology, but not before using one of their devices against them to lower their intelligence to that of beasts. But they are starting to get it back, and they're pissed.]]
