* In ThomasPynchon's ''Against the Day'', the event is implied to be connected to Tesla's experiments and/or something invading from AnotherDimension and/or a monster unleashed from UnderTheEarth; it's all [[MindScrew a bit confusing]].

* In Kage Baker's TheCompanyNovels, a defective Immortal claims responsibility for the event, saying that he found that using time travel in a manner other than the series' standard StableTimeLoop method will punch holes in the fabric of reality. He also claims to have wiped out the dinosaurs. It isn't clear if this is the truth, though; he might've been lying, or just completely insane.

** Unless you're the Void Engineers, of course, in which case it's the result of the Engineers finding an alien ship somewhere in the Deep Universe and [[MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds accidentally setting off its main weapon]]. Cue mini-singularity landing in Russia.

* In the backstory to ''Film/{{Tomorrowland}}'', [[AllThereInTheManual presented in the book]] ''Before Tomorrowland'', the Tunguska Event was an early test conducted by Nikola Tesla and the Plus Ultra organization to open a rift into an alternate dimension via the atomic bomb. The devastating power of the Tunguska bomb lead to the organization looking to alternate technologies . The Manhattan Project as it turns out was an effort to tone down Plus Ultra's original designs into weapons that wouldn't blow big holes in the fabric of reality.

The gem structure at the center of the ocean is right about where the Tunguska Event occured.

On February 15, 2013, a 50 foot, 7000 ton meteor airburst over the Chelyabinsk Oblast, releasing the equivalent of 300 kilotons of TNT and [[http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/16/world/europe/meteorite-fragments-are-said-to-rain-down-on-siberia.html injuring 1,200 people]]. Thanks to most Russian motorists armed with videocameras in their dashboard (to settle traffic and speeding disputes), the Chelyabinsk Superbolide was no mystery, and coincidentally was the largest explosion from an extraterrestrial source since... the Tunguska Event.
