* ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'' provides a ScienceFantasy version of the typical genie in the form of Aurox the larger counterpart of the Shayne and Aurox duo. Referred to as a djinn, Aurox is an [[EldritchAbomination omnidimensional horror]] that resembles a genie if it were a horned demon-like creature made up of floating body parts. The creature is somehow bonded with the 16 year old Shayne at the hip and both have a [[SymbioticPossession friendly relationship with one another]]. [[GuardianEntity Floating above her]] like a Stand from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', Aurox fights enemies alongside her and even [[HeroicHost grants her abilities]] such as stealth.

* Creator/JackChalker 's ''Dancing Gods'' series featured the Lamp of Lakash, whose genie was the last person to make the mistake of making more than one wish. The wish would be granted, but the wisher would become an all-powerful genie bound to the Lamp, and the previous genie would revert to his original state. (Presumably the original genie was from the home dimension of the Djinn, to which the Lamp had a link.)

* ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'' was a series of yesteryear about an astronaut who found a female genie and was given unlimited wishes. She [[HappinessInSlavery didn't want to be freed]], because she had fallen in love with her master. Major Nelson rarely wanted Jeannie to ever use her powers. Mainly this was because she tended to [[StopHelpingMe complicate his everyday life]]. The show's continuity first said that Jeannie was cursed to be a genie but this was later given a RetCon to say she was from a family of genies.

* ''Literature/{{Declare}}''. Djinn are EldritchAbomination that can be bargained with or killed, but not controlled. For a djinn, shapes can be thoughts and thoughts can be actions, and an ellipsoid marked with perpendicular grooves means death.
