* The genre of ProgressiveRock is known for songs which are loaded with allegory, metaphor, obscure symbolism, and the ConceptAlbum, in which all the songs on an album are all based on a specific theme, or which are all part of a larger story. For instance, the song "SuppersReady" by Music/{{Genesis}} was based on the Literature/BookOfRevelation. Or their ConceptAlbum ''TheLambLiesDownOnBroadway,''; which is about... [[MindScrew take your pick]].

* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'': Anybody who was part of the (in)famous [=TenchiFF=] mailing list at the proper time will remember one Mr. Grey, who argued that ''TenchiMuyo'' was all an allegory for an obscure form of Zen Taoism. According to Grey, Ryoko and Ayeka were each half a universe, Ryoko represented the Altruist, and Tenchi represented the [[NoodleImplements goat]].

* {{XTC}}'s "The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead" has often been interpreted as an allegory about Jesus, John Lennon, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., etc. The music video particularly plays up Jesus and JFK comparisons.

Added DiffLines:

* In Rebecca Levene's deconstructive fantasy novel ''Literature/SmilersFair'', one of the characters is a MosesInTheBullrushes type goatherd named Krish who is either a MessianicArchetype or TheAntiChrist. In an interview on the Midnight in Karachi Podcast, she was asked whether the name was inspired by Krishna, and answered that she had initially spelled his name Chrish- and while that spelling sounded more like Christ, that symbolism as well as the Krishna one were completely unintended.
* The first book of ''Literature/TheCompanyNovels'' is called ''In the Garden of Iden'', and while the book does involve a garden which is the setting of doomed romance and theological discussions, the obvious Eden symbolism is unintended as the title was suggested by Baker's editor as a pun on the Iden family estate on which the novel is set. In fact, although the Iden characters are fictional, the surname is a real one. Sir Walter Iden tells a story about an ancestor capturing the rebel Jack Cade, and although Sir Walter never existed, Cade was indeed captured by a guy named Alexander Iden.

* Of all the shows likely to avoid such theories, you might expect ''{{Seinfeld}}'' to be one of them. You'd be wrong. Interpretations of the final episode have claimed that the airplane on which the four leads were flying crashed, killing them all. Their trial was actually a stand-in for their judgment in the afterlife, and their prison sentence represents a ''very'' lengthy stay in Purgatory.

* In the backstory to ''VideoGame/TheBeginnersGuide'', Davey drove away Coda by trying to see the symbolism in Coda's games, even though there was no symbolism involved in his games.

** A theory that the cast represent the seven deadly sins: Mary Ann is envy, the Professor is pride, Ginger is lust, Mr. Howell is greed, Mrs. Howell is sloth, the Skipper is both gluttony and wrath (or Mrs. Howell is both sloth and glottuny-over indulging herself with her hundreds of outfits), and Gilligan himself is Satan. An alternate form of the theory assigns Gilligan gluttony (either because he [[BigEater constantly eats but never gets fat]], or because [[TheMillstone all he does is take up space]]) and leaves the Skipper with just wrath.
