* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': [[http://fav.me/d5atqq7 Hasbro released an official map of Equestria in early August 2012]]. A remark in the lower right corner tells the reader of the dragons' whereabouts, to the southeast, with the words, "Dragons be here." The same map also points out that Griffins live to the east in the same manner. [[DontExplainTheJoke The subversion, of course]], comes from the fact that both are well-known and contacted sapient species in-universe, and so the labels make perfect sense, but are used for entirely different reasons than usual. Played straighter with the [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW IDW comic]]'s [[http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/File:Map-south_of_Equestria-scan-IDW_main_series_MLPFiM_comic_2.jpg South of Equestria]] map, which warns "Here there be monkeys, guard your valuables", "Beware the dangers of the Forest, they be too many a number to document", and "Elephant sightings reported".

Africa and South America are shown as misshapen purple blobs, labeled "Here Be Dragons" and "no civilization, people eat each other here". Australia is in a similar state, but is just marked "Here Be... Something Else." To the north, there's a white hemisphere stating that "Santa Claus lives here".

* The ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpiresII'' expansion included a Viking mission where you had to get to the New World. To avoid the simple idea of sailing around Greenland, there was some odd water to the South that destroyed your ships. After conquering some of Greenland, the area was revealed by the computer, showing the shape of a dragon on the minimap.
