* ''WesternAnimation/TheSeceretSaturdays'' never featured Nessie herself, but plenty of lesser-known lake monsters made appearances like the one-horned Alkali Lake Monster of Nebraska and Turkey's Lake Van Monster.

* Canada has several, including Ogopogo (which is actually protected under provincial legislation, just in case) in the Okanagon Valley lakes and its cousin Manipogo (who lives in Manitoba), and Memphré (in Quebec/Vermont, the first recorded North American monster). All of them were recorded in local legend long before the 1930s; as far back as the 1810s for Memphré.

** Central Africa's lake monsters tend to lap over with LivingDinosaurs, such as the Mokele-Mbembe, which is purported by some to be a surviving sauropod, although local descriptions indicate it may actually be an undiscovered species of semi-aquatic, long-necked rhinoceros.
** The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iliamna_Lake_Monster Iliamna Lake Monster]], supposedly said to occupy Lake Iliamna in Alaska, although eyewitness accounts and Native American legends related to them suggest they're some sort of gargantuan sturgeon-like fish, not plesiosaur-like creatures.

To his astonishment, the duo manages to bring Nessie back using [[EverythingsLouderWithBagpipes bagpipes]]. However, Nessie turns out to be enraged by bagpipe music, and eats Squidward when he inadvertently plays the bagpipes the two used to lure the monster.

* 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.

* There's also Sally, the Lake Salamanca monster in ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes''. Sally is peaceful, though, and dives below the water if you attack her.
** And [[VideogameCrueltyPotential attacking her]] was the only way to get the ''Believer'' badge.
* ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce 2'' involves the legend of Messie, a sea monster supposedly found in (say it with me) Loch Mess. People have been seeing it recently, but it turns out to be a fake. There ''is'' a real Messie, though -- and its elusiveness is explained by the fact that it's an EM being, invisible to most people. It ends up fusing with the guy who created the fake Messie to become a rather nasty boss, Plesio Surf.
** Incidentally, something funny went on in translation here. The character's English name refers to the longstanding theory that the "real" Loch Ness Monster is a plesiosaur. But the original Japanese name is Brachio Wave -- referring to the Brachiosaurus, which did sorta look like a plesiosaur from the neck up, but didn't live underwater. Between this and its incredible size (40 feet tall and twice as long, making it one of the most colossal creatures ever to walk the Earth), a Brachiosaurus couldn't hide in Loch Ness if it wanted to.
