* The theory that a quantum black hole was the cause of the event is near-proven in Creator/LarryNiven's ''Literature/KnownSpace'' after such were found by extrapolating possible orbits from the time and location of the event.

* The ComicBook/UltimateMarvel ''Ultimate Galactus'' miniseries revealed in the first mini (''Ultimate Nightmare'') that the Tunguska Incident was caused by the Vision crash-landing to Earth. He (she?) was quickly taken into Russian custody and dissected so its OrganicTechnology could be used to kickstart a SuperSoldier project, which means no one learned about Gah Lak Tus until about a year before he was supposed to eat Earth. In this universe the Tunguska explosion was said to have happened in 1904 instead of 1908, and WordOfGod is that the date was moved to make it a century before the release date of the comic in 2004. Creator/WarrenEllis, as a rule, does his research.

** The Truth segments in the sequel confirm that it was the destruction of [[spoiler:Piece of Eden 34, the Staff]] with Nikola Tesla's DeathRay that caused the event. 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 -- if it wasn't simply caught in the explosion because they didn't clear the lab in time]].

* In Julian May's ''Intervention'', the crash landing alien spaceship version is used. When real aliens visit the site on the centennial of the event, it is widely believed to be a hoax.
