* In ''UltimateMarvel'', there are occasional references to "Camp X-Factor," which seems to be a mutant version of Guantanamo Bay (which itself, of course, is also known as Camp X-Ray); this is also a MythologyGag.

* In ''Pendennis'', William Makepeace Thackeray had the hero attend {{Oxbridge}} University, whose counterpart was called Camford. Also, in ''VanityFair'', several of the male characters attended the public school called Slaughter House -- this is a reference to Charterhouse, which Thackeray himself attended -- it alludes both to the real school being situated near a slaughter house and to the sadistic corporal punishment there.

* ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' was based on a boxing match between then-champion Muhammad Ali and nobody Chuck "Bayonne Bleeder" Wepner. Apollo Creed is a fictional counterpart to Ali, while Rocky himself is a parallel to Wepner. Mason Dixon, the champion at the time of ''Film/RockyBalboa'' is a loose analogue to Mike Tyson.
