* One of MarvelComics's early, pre-''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' monster comics revealed the Moai to be silicon-based aliens, buried up to their necks. When the Kronans (aka the "Stone Men From Saturn") were later introduced in ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'', they were given the same appearance, with the distinctive elongated heads, despite having no explicit connection to Easter Island. The Kronans still pop up occasionally in Marvel titles [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk (The Hulk]] befriended one during "Planet Hulk"), and their heads still look like Moai.

* The first design of the Toa's and Matoran's unmasked faces in ''{{Bionicle}}'' seems to be loosely based off the Moai, in keeping with the various references to Polynesian culture. There is also a Matoran named Hafu who is famous for his stone statues, and a similar large stone head can be seen overlooking the Kini-Nui temple in the story material.

* Santa Destroy from ''NoMoreHeroes'' contains quite a few of these. Their placement suggests that they're some sort of secret but, no, they're just decoration.
