* ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' spends a lot of time having characters tell you about Allice, an Egyptian mummy that was being transported in the Titanic. June believes that the ship sank because of Allice's curse, and Seven and Ace add to the legend with their own bits of info. Near the end of the game, you find the coffin where Allice was being carried, you open it... [[spoiler:and you find nothing but a key and an emblem, both used to solve a puzzle. Allice is just a way to talk about ICE-9, which is tied to the morphogenetic field, which is a powerful theme in the game]].

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': It becomes pretty obvious what Bran's dreams really are when Maester Luwin tells Bran that sure, there are ''stories'' about people who can form a spiritual link with animals, but they aren't true and would be long gone even if they were.

* In ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'', Pazu believes the city of Laputa exists from the start when other say it's just a myth. He's not wrong, otherwise the movie would be a lot less interesting.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsLegendOfEverfree'': The eponymous legend of Gaea Everfree starts out as a campfire tale by Timber Spruce. Not surprisingly, it is bound to become important later, although it's a subversion: the legend doesn't happen so much to be true than to be a cover story for the supernatural shenanigans already happening, [[spoiler:as a result of Gloriosa Daisy meddling with a magic she doesn't understand]].

* ''Franchise/IndianaJones''. The Jewish story of the TheArkOfTheCovenant and the medieval Christian tale HolyGrail are both proven to be unambiguously true. But so are some elements of Hinduism and the legend of the {{Crystal Skull}}s.
** Not to mention (much as some people would like to pretend it didn't happen) stories of extraterrestrial visitation, and theories about AncientAstronauts.

-->'''Conspiracy Brother''': What do you think? Things don't just happen by accident! Sometimes people -- mostly ''white'' people -- make things happen!
-->'''Undercover Brother''': So the conspiracies we've believed for all these years are true? The NBA really did institute the three point shot to give white boys a chance?
-->'''Conspiracy Brother''': Of course!
-->'''Undercover Brother''': Then the entertainment industry really * is* out to get Spike Lee?
-->'''Conspiracy Brother''': Come on man! Even Cher's won an Oscar! Cher!
-->'''Undercover Brother''': Then O.J. really didn't do it?
-->''everyone looks away and mumbles''
* ''Film/{{The Mummy|1999}}'': "Hamunaptra's a myth." ...No it isn't. And no, the cursed mummy isn't a myth either.
** Although the curator who said that knew very well that Hamunaptra wasn't a myth. He was a [[AncientTradition Medjai]] who was ''trying'' to discourage Evy and Jonathan from looking for Hamunaptra.

* ''Film/{{Hook}}'' is based on this as well.
-->'''Wendy''': The stories are true! I swear to you! I swear on everything I adore. And now he's come back to seek his revenge. The fight isn't over for Captain James Hook. He wants you back. He knows that you'll follow Jack and Maggie to the ends of the earth and beyond. And by heaven, you must find a way. Only you can save your children. Somehow, you must go back. You must make yourself remember.
** That's far less "all myths are true" as it is "those books that were written are true; I know because I'm the one that experienced it, and [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis told the stories to the writer]]."

* The GameBoy game ''Final Fantasy Legend II'' (''VideoGame/{{SaGa 2}}'' in Japan) avoids this. One world your characters explore has a myth that turns out to be true and another myth that turns out to be false. [[spoiler:Also, there are actually 78 "MAGI", not just 77 as mentioned at the beginning of the game.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' devoted an episode to the Navajo legend of [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent the Yenaldooshi]], as told by one of Max's former teammates. The monster in question is indeed real, although it turns out the legend got a lot of things wrong and it was actually an alien.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': the in-universe legends of mutants living under the city and El Chupinebra turn out to be completely true - as does the more common myth of crocodiles in the sewers.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}}'', the {{Catfolk}}-populated magical kingdom of Thundera, stuck in MedievalStasis, considers [[LostTechnology technology]] to be mythical. Stories of "ships that could fly" are [[OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions fairy tales told to cubs]]. The populace has become similarly skeptical of the existence of the Book of Omens and Mumm-Ra. In the space of one night, protagonist Lion-O and the Thunderians see their kingdom ruined when old enemies the [[LizardFolk Lizards]] invade, bringing with them ''futuristic'' technological [[SuperweaponSurprise superweapons]], given them by SorcerousOverlord Mumm-Ra. Lion-O and his Thundercats are then sent on a race to find the very real Book of Omens before Mumm-Ra can get his hands on it.

* In OrsonScottCard's ''Literature/TheLostGate'' the Westillian Families are the basis of all Indo-European pantheons. It is inferred that other cultures deities, including the Abrahamic one have similar origins.

Added DiffLines:

* The myths and stories of TheCosmere usually correspond to some facet of the magical or historical landscape, so to speak. The local [[PhysicalGod Shards]], for instance, are usually major players in the local mythology, and their stated aims and behavior are recognizably in-character. This is clearest when comparing the religious doctrine on Nalthis (of both major factions, no less, as disparate as they are in almost every other respect) to a character's memories of being returned from the dead, but the examples are too numerous to list here.

* In ''Literature/TheKingkillerChronicle'', every single story told in Kvothe's narration turns out to be relevant and mostly true sooner or later; for example, Hespe's story about the boy who loved the moon [[spoiler: is a more or less accurate representation of how the mortal world and the fae world ended up going to war.]]
