* ''Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh'': the earliest recorded example. At one poiny, Gilgamesh comes across Utnapishtim, who had been made immortal by the gods in reward for building a giant reed boat to save his family, his village's craftsmen, and a number of baby animals from a world-destroying flood. After running aground, he even sent out a dove and raven to check if the water had receded, although the order's reversed from the biblical account--the dove found nothing, the raven found land and did not come back, so Utnapishtim and his crew disembarked.

* 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 [[IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace 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.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': In the Alpha timeline, when the Condescence openly takes over Earth, she floods the whole planet to make it more hospitable to an aquatic alien like herself.

* ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets'' frequently alludes to the concept, though such a thing never happens onscreen. Water is treated as sinister, and [[VaguenessIsComing ToTheArk]] (note name) named one of his videos Deluge. The series MythArc never really makes clear what the frequent Ark/Flood references are meant to imply, but...
* The great flood seems destined to happen in ''WebVideo/EverymanHYBRID''. Constant reference is made to floods, HazardousWater, and an [[AmbiguousSituation ambiguously defined]] "Ark". [[SpiritualSuccessor Yes, this was made after]] ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets''. Within the series MythArc, it seems implied that the Flood is in some way tied to the EternalRecurrence the characters find themselves trapped in.



* ''{{WesternAnimation/Rugrats}}'': in the episode ''Two by two'', Grandpa Boris tells the babies the story of Noah's Ark. They naturally re-enact their own ship and collect small critters in their backyard before it starts to rain (which they're believed to be a flood like in Noah's Ark). They question why Noah originally collected two of each animal, but quickly deduced it's for having a friend along for the ride. Not that babies in a G-rated show would get the ''real'' reason though.
