* In ''VideoGame/FaeryLegendsOfAvalon'', one of the realms that players are sent to is the ship on which the human legends of the Flying Dutchman are based. The ship is currently immobile for reasons that players have to sort out. (They involve a mutiny, a sea monster, and mermaids).

* 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.

* ''Film/TheManFromEarth'' is about a man, John Oldman, who claims to be 14,000 years old. His WalkingTheEarth began when his home tribe of cavemen noticed that he didn't age, and believed that he was stealing their life force. The Wandering Jew epithet is particularly ironic, considering that he [[spoiler:accidentally became Jesus while trying to spread the teachings of Buddha in Palestine.]]

* [[MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain Big Boss]] learned the horrible truth about his country, and never recovered from it (or the execution he carried out on his mentor for said country, which wasn't for peace or even World Domination, but the victorious enslavement of the masses for the benefit of a few). As a result, he spent five years wallowing in regret, found hope in his charisma as a military leader, then spent another five years training an army of professional mercenaries, and even built a nation-state made out of oil rigs and loose parts. Only to lose these a few months later. He rebuilds yet again only to flee to Zanzibar when his successor blows it all to hell. In the end, Outer Haven is just a really good base, but Big Boss is a soldier through and through: Go somewhere, do a job, leave. Nothing else matters, home is the battlefield itself.

*** A variation of this can be found in TheyMightBeGiants' ''Shoehorn with Teeth'': "He toured the world, with a heavy metal band/But they run out of gas/The plane can never land" which also owes a lot to Chico's speech as an Italian aviator, ending with ''and that's how we flew to America'' in ''Film/ANightAtTheOpera''.
* Invoked in the JethroTull song of the same name, which compares Vietnamese refugees and the homeless to the Dutchman.
