* In ''WebComic/StansStillStaySilent'', the mage safe spaces are influenced by their mage's mood or will:
** Lalli makes a moving tree grow out of nowhere when he kicks Reynir out of his space.
** A storm starts in Onni's when he spots Reynir in his own space. It calms down when Reynir recognizes him from Tuuri's family photo.
** The sheep in Reynir's space are seen fleeing in panic when he is protecting himself from the ghosts.
** [[spoiler:While her nature is unclear, "Pastor A" has her church briefly change from its Old World beauty to the impromptu Rash hospital it had become near the end as she tries to remember its physical location]].

* Done in a [[TheDaVinciCode Da-Vinci code]] spoof episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Maggie, who was revealed to be a special child who would usher in true peace, is put on a chair that would fulfill her fate, people stop fighting, flowers bloom, all and all good stuff happens...unfortunately, Marge would rather have her daughter than world peace, and Homer leaves the nuns with Bart, who causes the [[strike:rapture]] ''tribulation'' when he sits on the throne.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' features the DarkWorld, originally known as the Sacred Realm before it fell under Ganon's rule and was warped into a [[MirrorWorld dark and twisted version of Hyrule]]. The Dark World has the ability to turn anyone who ventures into it without the Moon Pearl into an animal or monster supposedly reflecting their "true nature" - e.g., a bully becomes a fanged and horned demon, and an indecisive kid becomes a bouncy pink immobile ball. Link becomes a helpless pink bunny, and Ganon, himself, is a massive boar.

** In the Season 6 finale, the land around the Changeling hive is a barren wasteland due to an AntiMagic field generated by Queen Chrysalis's throne, which means no [[PaintingTheFrostOnWindows maintenance of the land or weather by pony magic]]. Presumably, with Thorax having ousted Chrysalis and become GoodKing of the Changelings, the land will regain its vitality in time.

* Although ''[[Film/PleasantVille Pleasantville]]'' slowly changes to color throughout the film, the town only fully changes over to become a fully realized world after both [[spoiler:George and The Mayor]] are changed in quick succession. Either character(or both) might be considered the Fisher King in this case as the former was [[spoiler:the last of the in-show "Protagonist Family" to change]] and sets off an entire crowd when he does change while the latter [[spoiler:is the highest authority in the town]] and is the only character to actually be shown changing on-screen.

* In ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'', the captain of the Flying Dutchman has this effect on the ship. A good captain (or at least a captain who [[TheGrimReaper does the job]]) has a nice ship, but a corrupt one who doesn't (e.g., Davy Jones) makes the ship [[IncrediblyLamePun a little fishy]]. Thus, when [[spoiler:Will Turner]] becomes the captain, the ship's appearance improves and the sailors are no longer human-fish hybrids. In fact, you can see the fishy bits falling off of his crew when he takes over. [[spoiler:Will's father]] even takes the starfish off his face on camera.

* In Creator/MercedesLackey's ''[[Literature/TalesOfTheFiveHundredKingdoms Five Hundred Kingdoms]]'' series, this is seen as a manifestation of "The Tradition", a universal force that basically compels the world to act out fairy tales. As Godmother Bella explains to Elena in the first book, her kingdom's prosperous nature comes from having a good kind and queen. And Andie's [[MeaningfulName Acadia]] in the second book always relatively pleasant thanks to all the songs and poetry about their fair weather. Except when it comes time for a sacrifice - gloomy grey days for the drugged ones or thunderous storms for the fighters. And in the third book, the worst one happens when an Evil Jinn takes up residence in a castle, forcing the entire area to turn into a fierce desert that grows as he gets stronger.
