** 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...

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 [[OurGodsAreGreater 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.

* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'''s mix-and-match approach to mythology means that while the Gods are mostly [[ClassicalMythology Greco-Roman]] in nature, the Titan-like figures they overthrew are the [[NorseMythology Ice Giants]].

* NorseMythology is quite similar to the classical/Greek one. The Jotunn ([[OurGiantsAreBigger giants]]) are basically a mix of the Titans and Protogenoi.
* ClassicalMythology, of course, is the TropeNamer for Titans, and their Protogenoi/Primordial parents count as well.
* JapaneseMythology: Izanagi, Izanami, and the obscure deities who appeared before them. The obscure deities no longer appear in the universe. Izanami died giving birth to god of fire Kagutsuchi, and Izanagi is too grief-stricken to have anything to do with the world. The current pantheon consists of Izanami's daughter Amaterasu and the rest of the gods in Takamagahara.
