* ''Literature/TheAlloyOfLaw'', by BrandonSanderson, is set 300-odd years after the {{Mistborn}} trilogy. The events of the trilogy have taken on mythological and religious significance to the later generations. The most humorous of these changes is the ancient [[SacredLanguage High Speech]]; when an example of it is given, it's quickly recognizable to readers as the [[JiveTurkey silly-sounding thieves' cant]] used by Spook in the original trilogy, which nobody but he could really understand all that well. It hasn't gotten any more coherent.

A thousand years ago, the Glorious Hero led a rebellion against the oppression of the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Evil Emperor McDoom]], rallying an army of downtrodden peasants, StormingTheCastle of the dark empire, and defeating the emperor in hand-to-hand combat. His wise leadership ushered in a GoldenAge of peace and prosperity that lasted for four generations, and he is remembered fondly to this day as the great founder and establisher of freedom in the land.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' the events of ''Oblivion'' took place several centuries ago. Due to political upheavals and the Altmer falsely claiming credit for ending the Oblivion Crisis, the exact details of the Champion of Cyrodiil's actions have become confused.

The true story is remembered and can be found in a book, but it's one account among many.

* 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, [[ISurrenderSucker 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.

* ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'' sees this happening to Archaon the Everchosen, Lord of the End Times. In the original ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy'' campaign, he was a [[FallenHero devout Sigmarite templar until he fell to Chaos]] and eventually succeeded in destroying the Old World during [[TabletopGame/WarhammerTheEndTimes the End Times]]. In the distant future where ''Age of Sigmar'' takes place, much of the knowledge from the previous world was lost and Archaon has been shrouded in mystery with his real backstory being just one of [[MultipleChoicePast many]], with other believing he was born in the exact moment as [[BigGood Sigmar]] himself, being a [[EvilCounterpart dark reflection]] created in the Realm of Chaos. There are even tales that Archaon is an immortal emperor who once ruled all of the realms before the arrival of Sigmar, who usurped what is rightfully his.

* CardfightVanguard G pulls this off within only three years. Chrono takes Morikawa on his word that he's the strongest fighter, who taught Kamui everything he knows, and is intimidated by him. He doesn't know that Morikawa is a boisterous idiot that can't balance a deck to save his life.

** One of Creator/JohnByrne's idea for [[Comicbook/TheManOfSteel Superman's revamp]] is that the Legion was formed based on legends of [[ComicBook/{{Superboy}} Superman's adventures as a boy]]. The Legion would eventually be surprised to discover that these adventures never happened.
