* In Creator/RobertEHoward's ConanTheBarbarian novel ''Literature/TheHourOfTheDragon'', Valerius curses the fog until he realizes it would hide his advance.
* In ch. XI of CloudsOfWitness by Dorothy L. Sayers, Lord Peter Wimsey and his man Bunter interview a not very helpful witness who lives in a hut on the moors and then “like two Cockney innocents, Lord Peter and Bunter set forth at a brisk pace down the narrow moor-track toward Grider’s Hole, with never a glance behind them for the great white menace rolling silently down through the November dusk from the wide loneliness of Whemmeling Fell.” They wander around sightless for some hours, completely unaware that not far away, invisible in the fog, is a large and often fatal bog of quicksand.

* ''[[Literature/EarthseaTrilogy A Wizard of Earthsea]]''. Duny (who later becomes Sparrowhawk) uses a fog control/illusion spell to confuse invaders and save his village.
* Brandon Sanderson's ''Mistborn'' trilogy features metal-burning magic-users who [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin have a certain affinity with the concealing mists that form from nowhere at nightfall]], which commoners fear. [[spoiler: When the all-powerful, immortal Lord Ruler is assassinated, the mists begin to emerge during the day, last for weeks, form ghosts, and kill people. Though that was to "snap" the skaa peasants and awaken their magic powers so they could fight in the final battle.]]

* The [[SwampsAreEvil swamps of Karda Nui]] in ''{{Bionicle}}'' are shrouded in fog- it's so thick that it can't be seen through even with XRayVision. During the [[GiantSpider Visorak]] invasion, a thick green mist blocking out the sunlight is also mentioned.

* In ''Film/JurassicParkIII'', an entire sequence takes place in an area filled with this. Some of the fog around the upper level of the area clears well enough for Alan Grant to see that the area is a huge aviary...which can only mean that whatever is in there is 1) able to fly and 2) ''[[GiantFlyer huge]]''...and then one of [[PteroSoarer said flyers]] snatches up the kid they were trying to save.
