The Eastern church gives a variety of different names for the kings. In the West, the kings are traditionally named Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar, but the New Testament never explicitly identifies any of the Magi by name.

* An ''Creator/{{SCTV}}'' Christmas show has an extended commercial with Edna Boil and her line of holiday fashion for dogs, modeled by little yappy dogs. Creepy enough, then she highlights the true meaning of Christmas with Magi costumes worn by "We Three Pups".

* A series of interludes in ''ComicBook/AmericanBornChinese'' tells an immigrant-fusion version of ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'' with Christian iconography replacing the Buddhist elements of the original, and it turning out in the end that rather than going west to find Buddhist scriptures, the Chinese pilgrims are the Wise Men From the East who visited the infant Jesus.
* "Epiphany" by Creator/ConnieWillis is about two men and a woman who might have been Chosen as the new Three Wise People, called to witness the SecondComing. (The story is ambiguous to the end, because faith in the absence of solid evidence is a big part of what it's about.) One of the men is an atheist who is convinced the other two are delusional but comes along to make sure they don't come to any harm, and only starts to consider the possibility near the end of the story that he's been Chosen too.

* ''Film/ThreeGodfathers'': When the three bandits wind up in charge of a newborn baby in the middle of the desert, one of them compaires the three of them to the Three Wise Men. That same one notes that there's a star above the town they're headed towards, which happens to be called New Jerusalem.

* In short film ''Film/StarOfTheNight'', which is a SettingUpdate of the Nativity story to the American southwest, they're three cowboys who bought Christmas gifts for no particular reason. They see a blinking star and follow it--turns out it's the sign atop a motel. Then a man and his heavily pregnant wife show up at the auto court...

* In MikeRoyko's humorous column "Mary and Joe: Chicago Style," the Nativity is set in 1960s [[TheWindyCity Chicago]], where the Magi are mistaken for hippies and detained for illegal possession of gold and suspicious herbs. Meanwhile, there's no room for a poor couple from out of town in any of the city's social services, but Mary gets treated for post-partum delusion when she mentions who the baby's father is...

Added DiffLines:

* CourtMage: Some historical interpretations of the word "Magi" see their role as closer to this rather than being kings themselves.
