* ''[[Literature/TheStormlightArchive The Way of Kings]]'': The book is something between a holy book, philosophy, and a code of chivalry.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series gets its name from the Elder Scrolls, a form of TomeOfEldritchLore referred to as "fragments of creation."

Reading them also usually comes with a heavy dose of blindness and madness. They're also known to have some [[RealityWarper Reality Warping]] powers. In the fifth game, one character describes them by saying, "[[MindScrew They do not exist, but they have always existed.]]"
