* The world of ''VideoGame/Dota2'' was forged by vaguely bull-like {{Precursors}} called Titans. Elder Titan, a playable character, is one of these. It should be noted that they aren't gods themselves, simply the first creatures in the universe.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' Titans are a race of {{Magitek}}-using demi-gods who have the self-imposed duty of bringing order to the cosmos. They travel from world to world, terraforming them and populating them with seed races, usually golems or mechanical in nature though they were corrupted by the Old Gods to be made of flesh. After their work is done they depart for new worlds, leaving behind Watchers to maintain any facilities.
** Despite their name, the Titans actually resemble SufficientlyAdvancedAliens or {{Precursors}} more then any kind of God or Titan. Therefore, they'll be more at home in a Sci-Fi Space Opera then in High Fantasy. [[WildMassGuessing Consider]] that ''Warcraft'' and ''{{Starcraft}}'' share the same core writer...[[note]] Also consider how both the Titans and the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Races_of_StarCraft#Xel.27Naga Xel'naga]] from Starcraft have the same function within their universes...[[/note]]

[[spoiler:At least, that was how it was until their strongest champion [[TheParagon Sargeras]] [[GoMadFromTheRevelation went crazy after he had to kill an unborn Titan to prevent a greater threat and the others shunned him for it]], then started a universe-destroying crusade to destroy everything his kind built [[WellIntentionedExtremist to (in his mind) save the universe from said greater threat]]...and ended up killing all of them when they tried to stop him]].

In Myth/ClassicalMythology, the Titans (and their Primordial parents before them) were ancient godly beings that had ruled reality, until they were overthrown by the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Olympians]] in the [[DeathOfTheOldGods Titanomachy]][[note]]The Titans were originally considered true gods. Later Classical writers started confusing them with Giants, but this was not the usual representation. Also, the name Titan sometimes only refers to the first generation, though usually the non-nymph, non-Olympian children of Titans are also called Titans[[/note]]. Titans and primordials have since been featured in many works of fiction, and have several common traits among their varying depictions.

* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', Titans are, instead of primordial deities, mortals who have obtained the might and power of a God, but have not become true deities and lack the cosmic responsibility that comes with this. Lord Tirek, King Lavan, and Lilith the Witch Queen are all examples of Titans, being mortals who mutated into world threatening sapient cataclysms.

* In ''TabletopGame/ArsMagica'', the Greek titans and Norse jotnar are powerful beings of the Magic Realm. More generally, the Kosmokrators and Protogonoi are immensely powerful magical beings governing cosmic principles such as time, love, or night. Very few magi are powerful enough to get involved with them.

* As a consequence of the above two traits, the titans often have a rivalry/animosity/connection with the [[OurGodsAreGreater gods]] of the setting. [[DeathOfTheOldGods This may have led to their doom]].
