[[AC:{{Tabletop Games}}]] * ''TabletopGame/LegendOfTheFiveRings'' includes a location in Crab Clan lands called the "Tidal Landbridge" which... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin is what you'd expect]]. Inevitably, it is best known for an incident in which a Crab Clan army and reinforcements from their Crane Clan rivals fought a group of Shadowlands invaders until the tide came back in [[KillEmAll with inevitable results]].

* ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' had a number of them, such as the monastary at the Trident delta and the castle that Bran hides in. * An island chain in the {{Belgariad}} was used twice. Played straight once in the main series, with the path between islands revealed at low tide. Subverted in the prequels, when it's first discovered, but the protagonists skirt it in favor of inconspicuously crossing the frozen northern sea.
