* A lot of people believed the first season of ''Series/TrueDetective'' was a Franchise/CthulhuMythos-esque CosmicHorrorStory thanks to a ShoutOut to ''Literature/TheKingInYellow'', the unusual way the murder victims were posed, incongruities between what the detective being interviewed said happened and what actually happened, and hallucinations the detective experienced. Fans would take any inconsistency and unexplained instance as evidence that something supernatural was going on instead of what was really going on: a self-serving UnreliableNarrator detective with a substance abuse problem was recounting a case poorly, right up until the last episode when nothing overtly otherworldly happened. It's why the second season, which did not have anything weird in it, was far less popular.

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'': Furude Hanyu? Jesus in Purgatory. Or, rather, Jesus in ''samsara''. What happens if God needs forgiveness too? Is a partly-human, self-sacrificial deity really that much better than the blood-thirsty gods of old, or does that just create new problems? What if no one even realizes there's been a change?

* Somebody came up with the idea that the ComicBook/FantasticFour represent the four elements (Thing is Earth, Invisible Woman is Air, Human Torch is Fire (duh), and Mr. Fantastic is Water). This sounds like something that was developed retroactively. Creator/StanLee has no problem with being labeled a genius, so he hasn't discouraged this. It's lampshaded in the "Ultimate" version. The specific reasons why are in their entry in FourElementEnsemble. When Creator/JohnByrne took over the title in the 80s, one of his first issues features the Four fighting four elementals, who were ordered not to face their counterparts, thus making the mapping explicit. Creator/NeilGaiman later took advantage of the scheme for his ''ComicBook/{{Marvel 1602}}''
version of the Fantastic Four.

** Shadow as the First Coming of Christ - a virgin birth long ago, immortal, brought down from an untainted place to live among men, persecuted throughout his life while giving out wisdom beyond his years, and finally wrongly accused and made a scapegoat of for humans fouling up; he is betrayed by all he cares for and put into stasis for what might be forever, despite all he's done for us. He's held in stasis in the Crucifix position. He's even got a whore for a girlfriend!

* Played for deconstruction and perhaps TakeThatAudience in ''Anime/ReCreators'', where Alicetheria first hears from the protagonist a motivational speech about the high meaning of pop culture works, and then from a conversation with the creator of this manga (and accordingly, by her own creator), understands, that he did not put any aesop into his work and this is pure speculation of the readers.

* ''Literature/ThePowerOfFive'': Matt's story is ''suspiciously'' similar to the life of JesusChrist. Born with special powers according to some higher plan, destined to save the world from TheLegionsOfHell and their very {{Satan}}-like leader, leads a small group of followers of whom the closest to him is named Pedro ('Peter' in Spanish), accepts his destiny despite wishing there was another way, betrayed by one of his companions, flogged and beaten and hung up to be jeered at, [[spoiler: died, came back and ascended to Heaven right in front of his friends]].

* Fans of the movie version of ''Film/SinCity'' often wondered if the three protagonists were one and the same. Marv was the real character with John Hartigan as his AuthorAvatar made up by his own delusions while in a near-death experience. Dwight is Marv "with a new face" after faking his death. A lot of this came about because much of Dwight's backstory was alluded to but not explained (his story was essentially a sequel to his OriginStory from the comics). Comic fans explained that these were, indeed three separate characters that were featured in different stories published years apart and in a different order.
