The Bermuda Triangle is a popular place for works of fiction to place mysterious events, especially the disappearances of ships and airplanes (sometimes in connection with other StockUnsolvedMysteries, such as the fate of the crew of the ''[[GhostShip Mary Celeste]]''). Often, it will turn out that something ''really'' weird is involved with the area, such as aliens, paranormal activity, {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, {{Atlantis}}, or something even weirder. If the events are of human origin, it's still something weird like an AncientConspiracy or dangerous {{Cult}}.

* Also in Marvel, the mysterious nameless island raised to the surface of the Atlantic by Magneto ca. ''Uncanny ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' #149 is definitely located in the Bermuda Triangle. It contains ruins of a lost civilization heavily implicated in aliens and eldritch abominations.

* ''[[Literature/TheLaundrySeries The Jennifer Morgue]]'' has the Triangle as one of several sites heavily colonized by the Deep Ones, a species of SufficientlyAdvancedAliens that live on the ocean floor. The disappearances of ships in the region involve the weaponization of gas deposits - when released, they can cause the water under a ship to rush out momentarily, causing the keel to sink into the void just as the water starts rushing back in. The Deep Ones do this whenever a ship gets too close to finding out about them.

* One episode of ''Series/AgentsOfShield'' had Coulson give a throwaway line about how SHIELD had figured out what was going on with the Triangle and stopped it back in the eighties. [[NoodleIncident No details were provided]].

* ''Series/TheHardyBoysNancyDrewMysteries'' episode ''The Mysterious Fate of Flight 608'' subverts this to pieces. The Hardys board a plane that will be flying over the infamous area; Joe finds out about the flight path from a scared passenger and freaks out, though Frank scoffs at the idea, saying science has debunked the whole thing. But the plane runs into trouble: a hurricane hits, the pilots collapse, Frank ends up crash-landing the plane into the ocean, and the passengers take refuge on a deserted island, with the scared passenger saying they're now in another dimension and lost for good. Psych! [[spoiler: Nothing mysterious about it -- the pilots were drugged by a diamond smuggler, and the island is within spitting-distance of Bermuda, with rescue crews heading their way.]]

Naturally, the Bermuda Triangle is a popular place for works of fiction to place mysterious events, especially the disappearances of ships and airplanes.

If the events are of human origin, it's still something weird like an AncientConspiracy or a dangerous {{Cult}}. It is also common for works involving the Bermuda Triangle to ascribe disappearances to it that were unrelated to it in real life, such as the ''Mary Celeste''--a ghost ship often associated with the legend of the Triangle but found outside of it as it is normally defined.

* ''The Bermuda Triangle'' by Charles Berlitz was an instant hit because it pretended to be a real mystery, rather then fiction. The book claims many ships and airplanes have disappeared mysteriously in the Triangle, but the facts in the book were quickly discovered to be falsified. Lots of the ships and airplanes listed never existed in the first place, and others had sunk in other parts of the world. Those that remained were not many enough to be unusual and had sunk under totally normal circumstances, such as extremely bad weather.
