* Seven colours of the rainbow. This is actually a [[AssPull contrivance]] of Sir IsaacNewton, a well-known scientist and not-well-known mystic. [[NewerThanTheyThink Observing the spectrum of sunlight produced by his prism]], he convinced himself that the area between blue and purple was a separate colour, indigo, because seven colours would fit his numerology better. The joke of this is, he missed a ''real'' seventh colour: cyan, between green and blue. In Russian language, [[http://blog.properrussian.com/2011/05/what-colors-are-there-in-your-rainbow.html cyan IS addressed as the true seventh color]].

* ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': Seven is an ArcNumber of the series. It's associated with the the Faith of the Seven, the dominant religion in the main setting, the Seven Kingdoms. There are seven aspects of god, septagon-shaped temples called septs, seven hells, seven members of the Kingsguard, etc. GeorgeRRMartin is currently planning on making the series seven books long; [[TrilogyCreep whether he'll actually be able to do that]] [[FourLinesAllWaiting is another matter.]]

In the natural world, one of the origins of this significance come from the seven celestial bodies that could be seen with the naked eye, (Sun, Moon, and the planets up to Saturn), that were worshiped as deities, and the days named after them were the days of the week.

* ''Videogame/FallenLondon'': [[ArcWords Seven is the Number]]. What does this mean? It's not entirely known. But there are more than a few ominous events where the number is relevant, and usually not good news. [[spoiler:Especially when it comes to Mr. Eaten's name; there are always a number of horrible acts you must commit on yourself, and that number is always seven. [[BodyHorror Seven are the scars]] [[WoundThatWillNotHeal that will not heal]]. [[GoMadFromTheIsolation Seven are the chains that weigh on Seeker's minds]]. [[DamagedSoul Seven are the stains that mark their soul]]. And at the end, there are seven [[ArtifactOfDoom candles]] they must collect]].
