* ''Creator/ChoiceOfGames'' has ''Choice of the Zombies,'' which is [[CaptainObvious obviously]] about a ZombieApocalypse. One of the places your group of survivors can hole up is, perhaps inevitably, in a shopping mall.

The natural habitat of the ValleyGirl, [[ZombieApocalypse Zombies]] and, come Christmas time, the MallSanta, and the destination of choice for a ShoppingMontage. This setting is best portrayed in TheEighties, when malls were at their zenith, since many malls have since gotten rid of the neon and fountains that were featured in that decade. Although there are still plenty of successful malls that have undergone multi-million dollar renovations to stay on top of the heap, very many are in decline (so-called "dead malls") with competition from "big box" stores and online shopping -- to say nothing of a bad economy and a new generation moving back to the cities in droves. Regardless of their current state, the mall is increasingly looked upon with a sense of nostalgia, and as such, films that either focus on a mall setting, or feature a mall prominently, are beginning to be seen as [[TwoDecadesBehind period pieces]].

* The second level in ''VideoGame/EmoGame 2'' takes place at the Mall of America, and involves [[MonumentalDamage blowing up its central core]] in order to [[KeystoneArmy destroy every mall in the country]] and liberate America from yuppie consumerism. The entrance to the mall [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything overtly resembles a cathedral]], with stained-glass windows and messages that treat shopping as a holy sacrament, while the stores inside include an AsianStoreOwner's cell phone kiosk, clothing stores where teenagers go to become slaves to fashion, a music retailer run by [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Soundwave]] that sells nothing but Music/BritneySpears and Music/JustinTimberlake [=CDs=], and a NewAgeRetroHippie shop inhabited by the ghost of [[Music/TheGratefulDead Jerry Garcia]] and a bunch of people nostalgic for [[TheSixties a decade]] they never lived through. You also run into Becky and Enid from ''ComicBook/GhostWorld'', wondering what happened to the soul of middle America; later on, you find that the mall was literally built atop an old middle American Main Street, whose abandoned, boarded-up shops are now [[LiteralMetaphor the home of "underground" music]].

* The [[http://lonelymachines.org/mall-ninjas/ "mall ninja" thread]] (which [[PoesLaw may or may not be]] a StealthParody or a {{troll}}) is the stereotypical "tough guy" mall rent-a-cop turned UpToEleven. It has spawned a MemeticMutation among gun enthusiasts, with the term "mall ninja" being used to describe people who buy guns, blades, and "tactical" gear (especially of the AwesomeButImpractical variety), and/or [[MilesGloriosus claim combat expertise far beyond what they actually have]], simply to look {{badass}} and convince others of their badassery.
