* In the BBC's production of ''[[SherlockHolmes The Hound of the Baskervilles]]'', Holmes, Watson and Lestrade are waiting for the titular hound to be released when a fog rises, obscuring their vision of the area. The mist is natural (the story does take place in England), but since the creature they're waiting for has a long and mysterious past associated with it, the mist not only presents a practical problem, it also adds to the tension of the moment. This is also the first time the creature will be clearly seen (an earlier appearance engineered by the villain was very brief and intended to instill fear in the viewers), so the impending revelation adds to the emotional weight of the moment.

* Ruidean in the ''Literature/WheelOfTime'' is an ancient city shrouded by fog in the middle of a desert. Aiel who wish to become clan chiefs or Wise Ones must enter the city to learn the confronting truth of their race�s past; [[GoMadFromTheRevelation not all survive]]. The mist is dispersed [[spoiler: during Rand�s battle with Asmodean]] just after Rand reveals the truth to almost the entire Aiel population. The mist vanishing symbolises the loss of secrecy.

* Myth/IrishMythology knows of the ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C3%A9th_f%C3%ADada féth fíada]]'', the fairy mist (also known as ''ceo druidechta'', druid mist). Supposedly, the ''féth fíada'' was used by the Tuatha Dé Danann to conceal themselves from observers; they also could travel in this mist -- even over the sea. In stories set in later times, druids and even Christian saints are reported to make themselves invisible with magic mist.

** The move Misty Terrain, introduced in [[PokemonXandY X and Y]] is a Fairy-type move invoking this trope. It prevents status conditions, such as sleep, poision, etc., on all grounded Pokemon and halves the power of Dragon-type moves from grounded Pokemon.

** The mist originates as a practical solution to a hardware problem in the first game; the original PlayStation didn't have the power to adequately render a whole town, so the developers filled it with mist to facilitate this. The effect proved so chilling that it was maintained even when more powerful systems became available.
