* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' has the Gods of Mokhadun, who all withdraw from the mortal realm after a mortal/divine love affair ends up killing several of them, destroying Mokhadun, and nearly ending the world. The survivors slowly forget the truth of the gods as they fade into myth; some, such as the deceased and exiled, are forgotten altogether, while Father Time's name is lost, Dunnuloa, said in myth to now dwell in the moon, becomes Lunoa and then becomes Basphomy, Patron of Halloween (and is then forgotten as she gets replaced by The Pumpkin King), Krig Gaul the God of Joy becomes Kringle, Patron of Kristmas, and female Rana, said in myth to now dwell in the sun, becomes the male Egyptian sun god Ra.

* ''WebAnimation:{{RWBY}}'': The Remnant fairytale, the Story of the Seasons, is based on truth as the Four Maidens really do exist, and they do indeed have the seasonal ElementalPowers that the fairytale claims. However, the story has taken on such mythic properties that the accuracy of the tale is hard to unravel. Pyrrha learns from Professor Ozpin that this is deliberate. People sought the incredible power of the Maidens for nefarious purposes, requiring the protectors of the Maidens, currently led by Ozpin, to hide them away and let them fade into legend and fairytale just to keep the Maidens safe. [[spoiler:Professor Ozpin only reveals this to Pyrrha because he believes she is a good candidate to receive the Fall Maiden's powers from the current one, who is comatose as a result of a partially successful assassination attempt. The assassin, Cinder Fall, managed to obtain half the Fall Maiden's powers, and Ozpin hopes Pyrrha can inherit the other half to prevent the villain from obtain unimaginable power.]]

* ''ComicBook/BeastWarsUprising:'' While not in full effect in the main story, a hidden part of the last story has a character - with a shaky grasp of history at best - from some ten thousand years into the future call ''Optimus Prime'' "mythical" (and even gets his name wrong, calling him "Optimus ''Convoy''").

* 2000 years after the events of his own games, [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Marth]] is remembered in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' as a fierce and unforgiving OneManArmy; [[spoiler:Lucina]] is shocked when [[spoiler:Tiki]] tells her that he was actually a kind and considerate idealist who cared deeply for his friends.

** The trope returns in ''Videogame/DarkSoulsII'', as it has been several more ages since II. The Shield of Want, in particular, references the venerated King of Drangleic as a man of "all consuming thirst" instead of the noble but misguided soul he was.

* Lampshaded in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword''. Gaepora is giving exposition via the legend that has been handed down through the ages in Skyloft, as instructions on what Link is supposed to do. Then Fi, who was actually around when the legend was written, comments that oral tradition is not a very efficient method of data preservation, and proceeds to recite the same legend, but far more detailed.
** This trope is also used to explain the apparent plot holes in the various games' backstories: most of the games take place hundreds or even thousands of years apart, and history has been muddled a bit since the actual events occured.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Homeworld}}'' the Kushan have three legends on how they got to Kharak: the first version from kiith (clan) Gaalsien says they once lived in heaven but were exiled for one great sin and the gods will wipe them out if they try and leave, the version from the kiith (clan) Siidim says that only they came from heaven and the other kiithid are from Kharak and thus inferior, and the second Gaalsien version is that they were all created to suffer on Kharak from begin with and will be wiped out if they try and leave. The coming of the Taiidan when a hyperspace jump is successfully executed proves that the first Gaalsien version is the most accurate, with ''Homeworld 2'' showing exactly what the sin was: using their possession of one of the Three Hyperspace Cores to bypass the Taiidan frontier forces and bomb their homeworld and then, when the galaxy decried their war crime, [[ISurrenderSuckers surrendering their fleet and Core to the Bentusi only to attack them by surprise when they came to claim them]] and [[BullyingTheDragon discovering they were no match for them]], at which point the remnants of the Taiidan fleets took the chance to pay them back and only let a few survivors establish themselves on Kharak when the entire galaxy begged them to stop, with a treaty giving them the right of finishing the job if they developed hyperspace technology again.

This is also why the Gaalsiens are the antagonists of the prequel game ''VideoGame/HomeworldDesertsOfKharak'', as they're determined to keep the gods from wiping out their race, while the Northern Coalition is determined to survive (Kharak is slowly becoming uninhabitable) by developing space travel technology and discovering what the Anomaly is all about.
