* In ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'', during Barbossa and Jack's swordfight, Barbossa gloats over Jack having gotten in way over his head (by, y'know, engaging in single combat with an immortal), taunting him by saying "You're off the edge of the map, matey. Here there be monsters!"

* In ''Webcomic/{{Endtown}}'' maps of the post-apocalyptic surface world are a bit... [[http://www.gocomics.com/endtown/2009/04/23 inadequate]]. As in, they're literally nothing but a north arrow and "here be dragons".

* ''VideoGame/WarioLand: The Shake Dimension'' had [[http://www.mariowiki.com/images/0/02/Wlsi_shake_dimension_map.jpg one of these maps]]. Note the mermaid, sea serpent and octopus-like creature in various points on the map and the old-fashioned compass (itself something many of these maps also contain).

* The novelization for Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan has two scientists on the Genesis team, with rather warped senses of humor, create hypothetical maps of the proposed Genesis Planet with one region marked "Here There Be Dragons." By way of explanation, they ask what's the point in giving humanity a strange, new world to explore if there isn't some element of danger? No one's ever quite sure if they're joking or not (Genesis could be programed to create life forms, like plant life, but the main team hadn't coded in animals). While staying the Genesis cave later in the book, [[BrickJoke Saavik's internal monologue mentions her being fairly sure she saw some kind of large, flying reptile in the distance.]]

* ''VideoGame/BattlefleetGothicArmada'': The opening cinematic starts with a shot of a star map featuring illustrations of numerous space monsters between the various star systems and sectors, including a serpent, a kraken-like beast, and a monstrous leviathan. Considering what kind of universe 40k is, these are likely realistic depictions of very real dangers in those areas of space.
