* In Creator/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.)

* [[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.]]

* 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.
