* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'': ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
**
The realms of the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]] in Oblivion are part GeniusLoci and part EldritchLocation. The Princes rule their own realms as {{Dimension Lord}}s, inside of which they possess almost absolute power to create, change, and alter at will. Anything that causes one of the Princes to change, however, be it a HijackingCthulhu situation or through their own actions, also affects their realm. For example, in the 4th Era when [[DealWithTheDevil Clavicus Vile]] was [[Literature/TheElderScrolls separated from]] his [[MoralityPet external conscience]], Barbas, his realm of is said to have literally shrunk.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'''s
''Shivering Isles'' expansion. The Isles reflect expansion, you visit the mind titular realm of Sheogorath, Daedric Prince of [[MadGod Madness]]. It is appropriately insane. However, as part of an EternalRecurrence known as the Greymarch, [[spoiler:Sheogorath reverts to his true form, that of the MadGod, Sheogorath. This goes for Daedric Prince of [[ControlFreak Order]] Jyggalag]]. Life in the rest Isles begins to die off and crystal spires grow out of the daedric princes, too. They are their spheres ground, signalling the beginning of the Greymarch. Naturally, it is up to the PlayerCharacter to put an end to this recurrence and their spheres are them.save the Isles.

When she meets and falls in love with Hoji, it starts a slow decline into their world's destruction, causing Enma to forbid them from seeing each other. [[spoiler: Hoji, scorned by this, poisons her sending her in a fit of grief and envy, damning the world of demons to destruction unless the Nobitsura Kage is reforged and an immortal is sacrificed to revive her.]]

* As RobertJordan's ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' goes on, the world becomes a worse place to live, the weather system is screwy as hell, and chaos reigns in most of the countries due to years of near constant warfare, from civil strife to human to inhuman invasion. Bubbles of Evil cover the earth killing people, and ghosts are even appearing as the Pattern itself becomes unstable. This is reflected by Rand's mental health, as he slowly goes mad. By the end of ''Knife of Dreams'' Rand is schizophrenic, [[spoiler:is missing a hand, and his eyes are damaged]]. He also has the traditional unhealing wound in his side. Moridin even refers to Rand as the Fisher King, after a crucial piece in a complicated, nearly forgotten board game. Even in book 1 (when the weather was only mildly odd and Rand not yet mad or injured) we get the phrase, 'The Dragon is one with the land, and the land is one with the Dragon'.

* In ''{{Holes}}'', Stanley Yelnats is sent to a juvenile detention facility called Camp Green Lake.

* In ''Theatre/AntonyAndCleopatra'', Octavian references the myth by mocking Antony for spending all his time fishing while he is the nominal ruler of Egypt. This is an inversion, as the point was to demonstrate that Antony's job was so cushy and undemanding that Egypt continues to run perfectly well regardless of how he spends his time.
