** At the beginning of ''Film/TheMummy1999'', you had '''[[SomewhereThisIndexIsCrying Thebes
with Yetis. Then the Great Wall becomes pyramids]]''', which seemed kinda mystical. [[HollywoodAtlas Apparently]], [[RealPlaceBackground Giza and Thebes]] [[MixAndMatchCritters were united]] to create a bonus nice Landmark of Lore.

* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' features its own take on historic landmarks, including the wind-themed dungeon of Air's Rock [[LandDownUnder in the continent of Osenia]], ancient ruins in a South American analogue hiding ThePowerOfTheSun, the ruined and overgrown city of Ankhol Wat, the Apojee Islands and their water-spewing moai (although differently-elemental-themed moai appear in other locations), the Endless Wall (not as an ancient structure, it gets built sometime in the thirty years separating the second and third games)... While stone circles appear and almost always have something useful in the middle that's InvisibleToNormals, they're nowhere near the size of Stonehenge.

Sometimes these locations will be turned into a WeaponizedLandmark. Compare RuinsForRuinsSake and TempleOfDoom, which may overlap. Probably the result of SmallReferencePools and as such is the Sister Trope to PublicDomainArtifact. A Landmark of Lore is often the subject of AlternateLandmarkHistory.

* ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' has an in-universe example: Anything that qualified as a Landmark of Lore in its mortal world immediately became a mystical PlaceOfPower as soon as the apocalypse started, thus making this trope apply on the setting retroactively.

* In one episode of ''KeroroGunsou'', Keroro and Fuyuki learn that the Great Pyramid of Giza, Stonehenge, Machu Picchu and Easter Island were all built by aliens...but as tourist traps. The Pyramid was a haunted house, Stonehenge was a giant solar-powered camp stove, Machu Picchu was the site of a roller coaster, and Easter Island is a giant whack-a-mole game.

* ''TheGoodies'' however are less than impressed by this great British achievement.
-->'''Bill:''' Stonehenge, what a great waste of money that was. TWO THOUSAND YEARS IT'S BEEN THERE! Still doesn't fly.
** In another episode, after expressing skepticism that there's anything unusual about Stonehenge, Graeme fails to notice there's a UFO behind him that's using it as a fuel station.
