** They were the basis for the "Millennium Giants" story arc in the ''Comicbook/{{Superman}}'' comics in the 1990s. Giants (suspiciously similar to Marvel's Celestials) woke up and started walking around Earth causing chaos, until Superman restored the natural balance of the Lines by sacrificing the electric powers that he had gained previously. (The whole thing might have been just an excuse to get him back to normal.)

* PonyPOVSeries: According to 7 Dreams/Nightmares: Bright Eyes story, It turns out in the POV-verse, this world has nine lay lines, with three places where the lines converge: Everfree Forest (with the Castle of the Two Sisters as being the true convergent point), a location in the Griffon lands, and a third in the Deer homeland.

* To a cursory glance at the map, the A47 road, a significant highway crossing [[UsefulNotes/EastAnglia the flattest part of England]] and connecting Norwich to Yarmouth, is straight as an arrow. If you wanted an example of a possible ley line on the map of England, you might begin here. But the problem is - it isn't. Generations of boy racers, in big powerful cars and motorbikes, hae come to grief at a place called Acle. Here, people wanting to see what a motorbike can do at over a hundred on a long straight road have had the [[OhCrap moment of realisation]] that at Acle, there is a very slight but significant curve. [[note]]See above about how the curvature of the world affects otherwise long straight roads[[/note]]People travelling too fast have run out of road, and buried themsevles in the field beyond.
