* The {{Touhou}} game ''Urban Legend in Limbo'' has Nessie as Nitori's urban legend theme. She and the rest of the kappa have built a Nessie-shaped robot based on the legend, so they can easily make "evidence" of the monster, and profit off of it. Due to the [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve nature of Gensokyo]], however, [[spoiler:Nitori is eventually stalked by a ''real'' Loch Ness monster]].

* The ''{{Redwall}}'' novel ''High Rhulain'' features the reptilian Slothunog. It's only on one page, but it makes up for it by [[MomentOfAwesome being the most awesome page in the book.]] There's also the Deepcoiler in ''Salamandastron'', a giant carnivorous eel that lives in a great inland lake. The shrews thought it was a myth. They were wrong.

* 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.
