* In {{Pokemon}} Lapras is a plesiosaur, the sort of creature Nessie is often explained as being and its production name was Ness. Draw your own conclusions.
** Gyarados is based on legends about magic carp jumping over the Dragon gate and becoming dragons but its abode being in lakes in its appearances in Red and Blue seem to be inspired by lake monster myths.

* ''[[Series/ThatMitchellAndWebbLook That Mitchell and Webb Sound]]:'' As a result of a Kickstarter joke GoneHorriblyWrong, a group of scientists drain Loch Ness to find Nessia... and determine it did indeed exist. Of course, as a result of their actions, they killed the creature, rendering the entire endeavour pointless.

Added DiffLines:

* The now-extinct plesiosaurs comprised of a group of water-dwelling reptiles - large ones growing over 20 or 30 feet long - that looked very much like descriptions of Nessie. Picture a sauropod dinosaur with flippers instead of legs, and you get the idea.
** Nessie, however, would most probably not be one, as the plesiosaurs went extinct millions of years ago - and the lake Loch Ness is only 10,000 years old.

* ''Beyond Loch Ness'' is a movie about the titular creature... in Lake Superior. Yes, you read that right. The identity of the creature is revealed to be a "plesiosaur". Note the quotation marks, as it's entirely possible that this is the least realistic plesiosaur in fiction. Not only does it have the typical inaccuracies, like the swan like position of the neck and laying eggs, this one goes further. For one thing, it doesn't have flippers, it has amphibian like legs. In fact, it spends most of the movie on land. It apparently has no problem with this. Despite plesiosaurs being mainly fish eaters this one, of course, seems to have a taste for humans. To top it all off, it doesn't even look like a plesiosaur, not even the inaccurate ones!.

The identity of They go with the usual plesiosaur claim, but honestly the creature is revealed to be a "plesiosaur".
