[[AC:TabletopGames]] * ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' calls the extremely powerful, extremely ancient founders of the clans "Antediluvians" for exactly this reason - they predated the Great Flood, and were likely some of the only things to survive while the earth drowned.

* The Missoula Floods. About 15,000 years ago, Glacial Lake Missoula (located over surprise! Missoula, Montana), melted through a glacier arm that was damming it, and poured out over much of eastern Washington (whose torn-up landscape now has the distilled-awesome name of [[IDon'tLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace the Scablands]]), tore the Columbia Gorge a new one, and backflooded up the Willamette Valley eight hundred feet deep in places before draining into the Pacific. It created dry falls that briefly had ten times the water flow of all the present-day rivers of Earth combined. Better yet, this is known to have happened though not to the same scale as the first time at least thirty-five times. Many other glacial lakes notably Lake Agassiz in central North America and Lake Altai in central Asia are believed to have produced similar megafloods.

* In Creator/AAPessimal's ''GoodOmens'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5304252/3/I-shall-endure-to-the-end I Shall Endure...]]'', the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley are ordered by their respective Managements to assist and advise a boat-builder called Noah and his family, ensuring the Ark is built on schedule and that Noah's energy and enthusiasm do not flag. What Happens Next more-or-less follows, but embellishes, the biblical account.

It also establishes that this was the same flood experienced by Deucalion and Emperor Yao, and which destroyed Atlantis, Lemuria and Hy-Brasil.

* Myth/ChineseMythology, but instead of the flood wiping out humanity, Yu the Engineer directed the construction of great canals and redirected rivers to control the flood and provide better irrigation for farming. Yu learned his lesson after Emperor Yao executed his father, Gun, whose attempt to control the flood by damming the rivers and seas with gargantuan dykes only made the floods worse. Instead of being a story about the sin of man, the Chinese flood myth is a Taoist parable about cooperating with nature instead of futilely fighting against it.

* The prevalence of flood myths is beginning to be considered to be the result of most early human settlements being situated on or very close to a large river for fresh water, and large rivers tend to flood every ten to twenty years or so, occasionally catastrophically.

* On ''Series/{{Dominion}}'', [[BigBad Gabriel]] explains that the entire Flood story was metaphor for what really happened, since it was easier for humans to understand than the truth. Said truth being that [[spoiler: the "flood" was [[DarkAndTroubledPast Michael]], who believed that humanity had to be punished for daring to worship angels instead of God. The "ark" in turn was actually a bunker Noah built to try and save some people from the slaughter.]]

* [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Gaius Baltar]] mentions the story of the Flood as explained in the Book of Phytia to Roslin, comparing his role in the destruction of the Colonies to that of the Flood. While no actual Flood is seen, the story is clearly a reference to the biblical story and [[spoiler: may even have been its origin]].
