* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' of Creator/AAPessimal, magic carpets originated when a Klatchian wizard was experimenting with flying spells, whilst taking long tokes from a hookah filled with the finest hashish. In an increasinlgy blissed-out state in a smoky enclosed room, the smoke and fumes - and the magic - impregnated the carpet he was standing on and the carpet had a freaky trip where it thought it could fly. The rest is history.

* In Creator/TerryPratchett's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' the FlyingCarpet is a moderately common object in Klatch. One managed to traumatize Rincewind so that he developed phobia of falling even before falling off one.

** In ''Discworld/{{Sourcery}}'', the Seriph has one, which apparently doesn't work, until
Rincewind so that commands it to go down. Nijel thinks he's used his wizarding knowledge to deduce the carpet is geased to do the opposite of what it's intended, but actually he developed phobia just noticed it was upside-down. (Rincewind is, of falling even before falling off one.course, not ''happy'' about flying a carpet, due to his long-established fear of [[NotTheFallThatKillsYou grounds]].)



** The ''Complete Discworld Atlas'' says the origins of flying carpets are lost in the mists of time, but points to a phenomena seen in a remote region of Klatch where evolution has created mountain sheep and goats which got around all that tricky falling-off-cliffs thing by learning how to avert a messy splat. Accelerated breeding by canny shepherds has created a lucrative market in a rare and ''very special'' wool used to weave carpets. Apparently the sheepdogs are also very specialised, and watching the sheep trials in that part of the world is most spectacular. [[Series/MontyPython Sheep that learnt how to fly. Hmm]].

* ''UltimaV'' introduced a magic carpet, hidden in the King's chambers. It returned in ''UltimaVII'', this time having had chairs installed to sit on!

** In ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}, Vetinari steals one, via a BavarianFireDrill (and [[ItMakesSenseInContext getting a donkey down from a minaret]]. It's not a very good flying carpet, all the good ones having been locked up for the war effort. Colon is almost as frightened as Rincewind about riding it.
