* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy Wiki'' theorises that the final battle of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' is a direct allegory to ''DivineComedy''. The first part of the battle has you fighting a huge demon half submerged in ground, like how Satan is depicted in ''Inferno'', thus making that part a symbolism for Hell. The second fight is against a multitude of suffering mortals, meaning the purgatory. The third fight has you face a [[PietaPlagiarism pieta figure]] with Kefka in place of Jesus, representing Heaven. In the final, fourth part, you ascend above the clouds and Kefka himself comes to you, dressed in a toga, telling that he will destroy everything. Divine Comedy ends with Dante ascending to meet God, who tells him the meaning of life.

**Of course, if it is a Mormon treatise, it's a really terrible one. Joseph Smith is reluctant to make Bella Mormon even when she desperately wants to convert?

* 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.

* 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.
