* SpeculativeFictionLGBT: What, you thought science fiction and queer media were new things? Lucian's ''Literature/TrueHistory'' is a satire on his predecessors' works (like Literature/TheOdyssey) being treated as factual when they really weren't, by having a soldier get transported to the moon where he meets aliens, fights the Sun, and marries a prince.

* ArcherArchetype:
** Myth/ClassicalMythology:
*** Artemis and her Roman counterpart Diana. She is the goddess of the moon and hunting, often depicted as standing on top of a mountain and shooting arrows at whoever she felt like.
*** Also, Orion, a fellow hunter and possibly the only man she respected. [[MultipleChoicePast According to the most popular version]], he either hunted with her and came close to winning her heart, but earned the enmity of Gaea when he threatened to hunt every beast on Earth, and was killed by a giant scorpion sent by the Earth Goddess. Upon Artemis' request, Zeus placed Orion in the heavens as a constellation, who also bestowed the same honor upon the scorpion (as a memorial to the hero's death), where it was known as Scorpio from then on. The constellation Orion immediately dims when Scorpio shows itself - [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere he's fleeing from the creature]].
*** Teucer, also from Greek mythology. He was reputed to be the finest Achaean archer in the army besieging Troy. He loosed shaft after shaft whilst hiding behind his brother Ajax's shield. The gods themselves had to intervene in order to nerf Teucer's effectiveness, with Apollo sending some of his arrows off course and Zeus breaking his bow.
** Houyi from Myth/ChineseMythology. This dude was essentially a combo of Hercules and Robin Hood on steroids. He was able to take out ''nine Suns'' with arrows. And would have taken out the tenth and final Sun if it weren't for the Emperor reminding him that we still need at least one sun to survive.
