Mythopoeia can be created entirely by an individual, like the [[Literature/TheSilmarillion world of Middle-earth]], or can be formed as a result of an amalgam of writings, like the CthulhuMythos. An ExpandedUniverse can result in the creation of one of these, particularly for LongRunners.

* ''BrutalLegend'' has a mythology spanning from the creation of the HeavyMetal world, through the rise and fall of [[EldritchAbomination Ormagöden]], rise and [[AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence ascension]] of the [[PhysicalGod Titans]], enslavement of humanity by the [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]], the [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters Black Tear Rebellion]], to the events ''taking place in the game itself''.

Added DiffLines:

* The goal of ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' is to have all worlds be randomly generated mythopoeias, each update making the worlds you generate even more complex than before. The game even has a specific "legends" mode just for looking at the generated histories of the worlds.

%%%* ''{{Exiern}}''.
* While ''RumorsOfWar'' borrows a great deal from Myth/ClassicalMythology, it combines magic, idealism, MoodWhiplash, and [[SeinfeldianConversation Loads And Loads of Arguing About Nothing in Particular]] into what is probably a CrossoverCosmology. Or something new entirely.

* ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', though it borrowed elements from the "parent" DCUniverse (as well as many mythologies). And Creator/NeilGaiman seems not to have planned it all in advance.

* The ''{{Franchise/Bionicle}}'' universe. The first few years had some influence from Maori culture, but the franchise [[ScrewedByTheLawyers has deliberately moved away from that]] and now has a complex mythology of its own. The best part is that it tends to subvert AllMythsAreTrue by explaining that the characters tend to come up with their own explanations as to why things happen that may not be entirely accurate, making it a case of ''in-universe'' Mythopoeia.
