** Despite their name, the Titans actually resemble SufficientlyAdvancedAliens or {{Precursors}} more than 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]]

* VideoGame/BrutalLegend: The Titans were the second generation of being. Huge, tremendous power (party technological), lived (collectively) long enough to have AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence before the story begins, substantially reshaped the world (specifically modifying the trees and spiders, among other things), human-looking with human morality [[spoiler: being humanity's ancestors]]...the only box they don't check is a rivalry with the gods, because the gods were dead before these Titans came around.

** Kronos is also notably inhuman, possessing "eyes like miniature suns" and skin resembling "polished pennies" that is usually [[WreathedInFlames perpetually covered with fire]]

* The Titans in VideoGame/OgreBattleMarchOfTheBlackQueen are upgraded Giants, who are large, club-wielders, and are Wind/Lightning-aligned, and PaletteSwap(s) of the other Giant upgrade classes like Frost/Fire Giants and vice versa.

* In ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'', barring those who look like Olympians like Helios, Prometheus and Rhea, all the other Titans are mountain-sized beings that look somewhat human-ish. Some also are ElementalEmbodiment(s) like Perses (Lava), Oceanus (Water/Lightning), Epimetheus (Rock), Gaea (Nature) and Typhon (Wind), who [[SadlyMythtaken wasn't even a Titan in the myths]]. [[note]]In fact, he was the father of all the famous Greek monsters like the Hydra, and was described as a mountain-sized beast with a horse's or dragon's head, writhing serpents for fingers, and wings that stretched across the sky while his arms could scrape the stars. Also, he was the only thing Zeus was afraid of.[[/note]]

* Comicbook/TheIncredibleHercules - The Titans and Chronos are imprisoned behind sealed doors, and they break free when the Comicbook/IncredibleHulk accidentally breaks the seal. The exception is Atlas, who is placed at The Axis of the world (center of the world that sometimes moves, changing the political situation of the world, and can also serve as a nexus to all the mystical foundations of the world).

In Myth/ClassicalMythology, the [[Characters/ClassicalMythologyTitans Titans]] (and their [[Characters/ClassicalMythologyProtogenoi 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.

* 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.

[[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]].
