* Though not created as "intentional" fiction, the Lost Continents of Mu and Lemuria were created out of whole cloth a century and a half ago, one to explain a [[ScienceMarchesOn now-discredited]] anthropological theory, the other to explain a [[ScienceMarchesOn now-discredited]] theory of continental formation, and both kept afloat by Spiritualists and Theosophists who wanted mysterious but unresearchable lands to say that their dead friends came from. {{Atlantis}}, also, was created by Creator/{{Plato}} as a moral metaphor, not a literal location.

* Franchise/{{The Slender Man|Mythos}} sounds like an old folktale or urban legend but was actually created whole cloth by a member of the Website/SomethingAwful forums. Some writers have even tried to expand the mythos by linking it to other web-based horror entities such as WebOriginal/{{Zalgo}} and WebOriginal/TheRake.
* Franchise/TheFearMythos, which established Slender Man and Rake as a part of their fear-based pantheon.



* {{Inglip}} has accumulated a vast mythologic background (which is even canonized by the rule that only Reddit posts with 100+ upvotes are declared canon - if one would add the non-canon stuff, it would become a Doorstopper).
* [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos The Slender Man]] makes many "appearances" in mythology. Which mythology? ''[[AllOfThem Every mythology.]]'' [[FridgeHorror More disturbingly,]] [[RealAfterAll some of these myths are from actual mythology.]]

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.

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.
