* ''BrutalLegend'', in keeping with it's general theme, gives us the most metal creation myth ever. In the beginning, the world was dark, and populated by a race of incredibly ugly demons known only as the First Ones. Then one day Ormagöden, The Great Firebeast arose, and began careening across the sky. The First Ones hated Ormagöden, because his fire lit up the world and exposed their ugliness, so they tried to drown The Great Firebeast and quench his flames with mud. Rather than die that way, Ormagöden let out a massive roar and tore his body to shreds to keep it from the First Ones, granting the world the elements of Metal, Blood, Fire and Noise. His metal flesh sank into the earth, seeding it with veins of ore. His blood poured out and filled the seas. His burning heart was flung into the sky, and became the sun. Finally, whenever truly badass music is played or a huge engine revved, you are hearing the echo of the death-roar of Ormagöden, and reminded of how he sacrificed himself to create the world as we know it.

* Volume 4 of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' tells one of Remnant's creation myths: the Tale of the Two Brothers. [[spoiler:Two brother gods, one of Light and one of Dark, created the world but were opposed to each other. Whatever Light made, Dark tried to destroy. Dark is also credited with being the creator of the Grimm. Eventually, however, they put aside their differences and together created something that had the potential to be either Light or Dark based on its own choice: humanity. They then left four powerful "Relics" representing the metaphysical gifts they'd left humanity, and departed for realms unknown. Whether the story is entirely true or not, the Relics themselves seem to be real, and are the things the BigBad is after.]]

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' had the legend of Mata Nui, describing the backstory of the brand's early years. It was recounted in the comics, on promo [=CDs=], online content, the novels and in the first DirectToVideo movie. After the first major arc, the legend (at least apart from its beginning lines) was revealed to be a lie crafted by the village elders to hide their people's forgotten past, until it was time to reveal it to them. Way after that, the rest turned out to have been bogus as well, when they uncovered Mata Nui's true nature.

* The Land from the ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfThomasCovenant''.

to:

* The Land from the ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfThomasCovenant''.''Literature/TheChroniclesOfThomasCovenant'' has several, mutually contradictory creation stories. WordOfGod indicates that there are elements of truth to all of them, and events in the final arc bear this out[[note]]The ''elohim'' are confirmed as the Creator's children and Lord Foul as the "demon spirit" from Foamfollowers' story, Foul's real name is a'Jeroth and he seduced the LoveGoddess before betraying her, as per the Clave's story, and the Worm of World's End lives at the planet's core and will destroy the world if roused, as per the ''Elohim'' story[[/note]] but a complete, unbiased account is never given.
