** Expanded in the sequel, which The Truth segments confirm that it was really caused by Tesla's DeathRay that he used to blow up [[spoiler:Piece of Eden 34, the Staff]]. Expanded on even further in the comic book spinoff, ''ComicBook/AssassinsCreedTheFall'', where it turns out [[spoiler:the protagonist's ancestor was an Assassin sent to ''retrieve'' the Staff from a Templar lab. It's not clear who, if anyone, actually wanted it destroyed, and if it was merely caught up in the explosion because they didn't clear the lab in time]].

* In ''{{Zoofights}} 4'', the Tunguska Event was actually a Cthulhu-esque alien crashing to Earth. In Zoofights tradition, they welded a bunch of armor plates to it and gave it two assault cannons and a rocket launcher. Oh, and it's also obsessed with the Soviet National Anthem and goes berserk if the boombox that plays it 24-7 is ever stopped.

* 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.
