* At the end of ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny2'', when time is being reset, [[spoiler: Judas]] hypothesizes that he might become one, wandering throughout all of time without a time or place to call home [[spoiler: since he'd been revived by the BiggerBad who'd just been retconned out of time]]. No official word on whether this happened or whether he was erased from time completely, though the game implies he did somehow survive.

* The legend of the ''Flying Dutchman'' is mentioned in ''SwallowsAndAmazons'', in which it's noted that Peter Duck (a seaman who loves the sea so much he considers going in to port for supplies to be an unwelcome necessary evil) would be a perfect choice to captain it.

* Each part of Walter M. Miller, Jr.'s ''Literature/ACanticleForLeibowitz'' (which take place hundreds of years apart) features a very similar old Jewish man, and it's [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane hinted]] that ''he'' might have been the Beatus Leibowitz from TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture. He explicitly denies this, but there are other implications that there's more to him than meets the eye.

''His'' love waited the ten years, and [[SomeoneToRememberHimBy bore him a child, to boot]]. Despite this, it seems good ol' Will [[HappyEndingOverride has gone down the rogue path like his predecessor, as he has started to turn into a half-sea-creature as well.]]

* The man himself shows up in ''Manga/FrankenFran'', his body so far gone that ''[[BodyHorror masses of insects have replaced his organs]]''. Because he's an immortal bug-man, Fran & Co. think he might be a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Nosferatu]][[note]]You know how WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas's Oogie-Boogie is actually a mass of bugs and Literature/{{Dracula}} turns into a mass of bats? German vampires traditionally can do that to escape being burned[[/note]]. They figure out who he is after he explains that his condition happened after he "mistreated [[{{Jesus}} a certain man]]" and Fran kindly [[WeCanRebuildHim restores his body]] and is excited at the fact that she can experiment as much as she likes on an apparent immortal; Veronica is less then thrilled, especially after the Wandering Jew says that he's [[ICannotSelfTerminate "very tired and wants to rest"]]. [[spoiler: They both get their wish when, just as Fran gives him a clean bill of health, he sees a crucifix and a vision of Jesus and begs for forgiveness. Jesus says something along the lines of "There is always forgiveness." And he dies by 'liquefying''. Veronica notes that he was very glad to see Jesus (he was staying as far from humans as possible and probably never seen a crucifix before) and finally rest.]] This is one of the few cases of MaybeMagicMaybeMundane that appear in the series.
