* An episode of ''Anime/HaibaneRenmei'' involves restoring an ancient book that told of a Creation Myth. They end up writing of how God created the world and then created {{Winged Humanoid}}s similar to Him. They were, however, too similar for His liking so He decided to erase them. God created humans afterwards. God fell asleep after creating everything, which caused the winged beings to escape from his dreams. After waking up, God decided keep the beings (who he named "Haibane") and gave them their own land in the sky to live on.

* Cats in ''Literature/TailchasersSong'' have their own mythology. It is believed that everything was created by a Goddess called "Meerclar Allmother". The world was originally populated with cats, children of the original Two: Harar Goldeneye and Fela Skydancer. One of the Two's children, Grizraz Hearteater, was driven by jealousy to create a HellHound to [[SiblingMurder kill his siblings]]. His brother, Viror Whitewind, stopped it but died in the process. Their other brother, Tangaloor Firefoot, trapped Grizraz underneath a tree. After resurfacing later, Grizaz was blinded by the sun and dug a hole into the Earth, where it is said he still remains.

* The ''Zelda'' series has one that's told in detail in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', assigning the three Goddesses of the Triforce their own important attribute, which they use to create the land and creatures as well as the mythical Triforce itself.
** Interestingly, this creation myth only partially agrees with the creation myth presented in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast''. However, WordOfGod states that ''Ocarina'' came first chronologically (at least until ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap Minish Cap]]'' and then ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'' came along), suggesting that the ''Link to the Past'' story may be the same one but details became distorted over time.
* ''FireEmblem: Radiant Dawn'' has one of these involving a Goddess of Order and a Goddess of Chaos. However, the majority of the story was mixed up to the point where everyone believed the opposite of what was actually true.

* In ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'', the God of Creation created the Sky World which had the various races slowly grow on the many islands that were created. Eventually his creations rebelled against the god, splitting him into two beings, one with the power of creation and the other wielding the power of destruction and regeneration. The former left, creating a stagnant world, being unable to destroy anything. The latter stayed in the Sky World, making it undergo a cycle of destruction and regeneration all the way up to the present day. It's only brought up in the game when the player character, Lyria, and Vyrn reach the depths of Pandemonium, TheAlcatraz for Primal Beasts and wonder whether Pandemonium reaches down to the world of the god of creation. It's later hinted several times that the denizens of the Crimson Horizon, the world created by that god, have been trying to use Pandemonium as a bridge into the Sky World.

* Successful completion of the Sand People sidequest and Krayt hunt in KnightsOfTheOldRepublic concludes with the Sand People telling you their creation myth. [[spoiler: They were once a technologically advanced race who were enslaved by the Rakata. When the Infinite Empire was hit with a plague, the slaves revolted, and hid underground when the Rakata bombed the planet's surface to glass. The story also implies that the Sand People may be the ancestors of, or at least related to, the Star Wars universe humans.]] Be careful, though, as questioning too many aspects of the myth will cause all the tribe to turn hostile.

* ''Literature/WatershipDown'' features a ''rabbit'' creation myth. The sun-god, Frith, originally created all animals as equals, but when the children of El-hrairah, the First Rabbit and a popular FolkHero, began eating everything, Frith transformed many of the other species into rabbit-eating predators. Then, to ensure that his people wouldn't be wiped out entirely, the sun-god blessed El-hrairah's bottom with quick feet and a cotton tail to warn for danger.

** An early, Pagan Lurline Creation Myth that predates the ''Oziad'' is noted in the first book by Elphaba and Doctor Dillamond. The Fairy Queen Lurline was flying a long voyage when she beckoned water from a desert to quench her thirst, causing Oz to spring up. Lurline rested on Mount Runcible and when she urinated she caused the Gillikin River to form. Animals were formed from clots of Earth lodged by all the plant growth. The animals mistook Lurline's urine for a [[TheGreatFlood disastrous flood]] and attempted to swim through it. The animals that turned back, or kept were they were, stayed animals while the ones that swam on to the far shore became [[TalkingAnimal sentient]] Animals.
