* At Devil's Lake State Park near Baraboo, Wisconsin, there's a very long staircase on the East Bluff named the Devil's Staircase. This troper decided to count the number of stairs on said staircase. Give or take (there were some steps that might qualify as stairs, but might not), the number of stairs is 666.

* One ''Comicbook/GhostRider'' arc ("Vicious Cycle", if anyone's curious) had Johnny Blaze accidentally bring Lucifer with him when pulling a LikeABadassOutOfHell stunt, at which point Lucy fragmented and possessed a number of recently-dead people. If you can't guess how many from the page you're on, there is nothing we can do to help you.

* In ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', Creator/AleisterCrowley is eventually revealed to have used the CodeName Beast666.
* With the premise of ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'', this trope was inevitable. Called "Trihexa", it is considered to be the most powerful monster of the series that other mythologies, upon seeing it, claim that even they can't destroy it.

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', the atmosphere readings of "The Impossible Planet"/"The Satan Pit" are 66.6, the gravitational field is "6^6 every 6 seconds", and the name of the base, "[=SB6=]" is seen gradually melting into "666". The two-part episode was even aired over the week of 6th June 2006, or 6/6/06. Also, the Ood go to work to the sound of Ravel's Bolero, which Torvill And Dean famously skated to in the 1984 Winter Olympics -- and received perfect 6s for artistic impression.

** Another ''Series/DoctorWho'' example: the coordinates for The Void -- the Whoniverse equivalent to Hell -- are all sixes, as seen in "Doomsday".

* An episode of ''{{QI}}'' had Stephen Fry asking the teams what the number of the beast was (Johnny Vaughan fell for the 666 trap). After Fry had revealed that 616 was the actual number, one of the panel concluded that 666 must be his fax number!

Sometimes gets truncated to 66 or lengthened to 6666 if 666 is too high or too low a number, yet still evokes the NumerologicalMotif.
