* [[MadArtist Mad architect]] Jean-Claude D'Aubainne built the [[TabletopGame/OverTheEdge Al-Amarja]] airport building in the shape of a cone ... ''balanced on its point''. It's the first sight immigrants see, so it ''has'' to be one of the most intimidating buildings on the island. [[spoiler: It's also a total con. The elevators operate in reverse, and the actual building is underground. The pyramid is an empty shell.]]

* Feature prominently in the Colus/Hagooda War arc in ''TheFiveStarStories'' as both factions have palaces resembling them, Hagooda's being Egyptian-styled while Colus' is a slightly more abstract combination of a Mayan one, a Japanese pagoda and futuristic arcology concept design.

* ComicBook/{{Apocalypse}} of ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' is fond of pyramid motifs, which makes sense as he was born in Egypt a few thousand years ago.

* In ''[[VideoGame/UnrealTournament2004 Unreal Tournament 2003]]'', the Anubans (or Nakhti, as they are called [[VideoGame/UnrealChampionship2TheLiandriConflict later]]), who are basically space Egyptians, are fond of these. One of the most prominent Futuristic Pyramids can be found in the map CTF-Face3.

* In LoisMcMasterBujold's Literature/VorkosiganSaga novel, ''Cryoburn'', one of the largest cryogenic companies on the planet Kibou-daini is [=NewEgypt=]. Their cryo-storage facilities (where they keep the frozen bodies of people who were hoping to be revived, when there's a cure for whatever was killing them) are all in pyramid shaped buildings, and all their corporate branding follows an Egyptian theme. (They've trademarked the entire historical era, to block imitators.)
* The Tyrell Corp. HQ is one of the default building options in OASIS, in ReadyPlayerOne. Because of that, copies o it are all over the place. [[spoiler: And they all can house the Second Gate.]]
