* One episode of ''Series/StargateSG1'' ("Seth") was set north of Seattle. Also, the episode "Nightwalkers" was set in a small, coastal Oregon town. Most of the series was filmed in the Vancouver area, leading to more than one joke about how all these alien planets sure look a lot like the Rocky Mountains.

* [[WordOfGod Matt Groening]] [[http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/matt-groening-reveals-the-location-of-the-real-springfield-60583379/?no-ist= once said that]] [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Springfield]] was [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield actually]] set in Oregon, [[CreatorProvincialism his home state]]. Then again, [[TeasingCreator Matt]] [[TrollingCreator Groening]] said this, and there have been many deliberate contradictions throughout ''The Simpsons'', including an episode where Bart and Homer had to plan a long road trip to get to Oregon ([[SelfDeprecation where they accidentally destroyed Groening's birth home]]).

The Pacific Northwest of the United States and Canada. When people talk about ''the'' Rainforest, they invariably mean [[TheAmazon the tropical one]] in Brazil, but the Pacific temperate rainforest is the largest in the world by area, and stretches from northern California upwards to Alaska. There are also American tropical rainforests in Hawaii and Puerto Rico.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Coraline}}'' is set in Ashland, Oregon, due to Laika, the animation company that made it being based near Portland, and them wanting to have it set in Oregon while still making Miss Spink and Miss Forcible's backstory of being former actresses semi-plausible (Ashland is the host for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival).

* ''AlanWake''. The developers wanted to create a convincing Washington landscape, so [[ShownTheirWork they took literally THOUSANDS of photographs of the land]], not to mention architecture styles. As a result, the game had very little concept art.

* ''WorldInConflict'' Much of the story and game play, while sometimes set in Europe with the EU, and in New York, is set in Washington. [[spoiler:In 1989, The Soviet Union invades Seattle using a lot of cargo vessels as a front. Their invasion is halted around the fictional city of Pine Valley (in place of Ilwaco, Washington), and finally turned around at the fictional town of Cascade Falls (in the Cascades in northern Washington). A final counterattack on Seattle (with an appearance by the Space Needle) forces the Soviets and Chinese reinforcements to retreat from the US mainland.]]
