* Spoofed in ''Series/{{Quark}}''
-->'''Quark:''' What do you make of that?
-->'''[[TheSpock Ficus]]:''' A most fascinating phenomenon, but one which leaves the mind facing a myriad of possibilities, alternatives and conclusions that are at best strictly hypothetical with no sound basis in fact.
-->'''Quark:''' In other words, you don't know.
-->'''Ficus:''' That's what I said.

* Anomalies in ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}''; oddities, mostly planetary, for your science ship to investigate for extra yields, new tech, empire effects, or occasionally things going horribly wrong. Most of them are the result of the galaxy's ''myriad'' [[{{Precursor}} predecessor races]], and never fully explained; [[{{Tagline}} the galaxy is old and full of wonders]].

* In the book and film ''{{Sphere}}'', a long-buried spaceship is revealed to have originated in the distant future and fallen into a black hole, recording this in the last entry of its log as "UNKNOWN (ENTRY) EVENT". Harry takes this to mean that the crew of the Habitat are fated to die, because if they lived to report this phenomonen, it wouldn't be "unknown".

Unknown Phenomena are usually an example of AppliedPhlebotinum, as any "energy ribbon", "subspace inversion" or "temporal anomaly" allows the writers of a given show to [[NegativeSpaceWedgie hinder, confuse or otherwise generally mess with the characters' heads]] for an episode.

* In the ''GalacticCivilizations'' games, these are the space equivalents of [[InexplicableTreasureChests Goody Huts]]. Investigating one can give you extra money or a new bonus, advance your research, or [[ChestMonster cause the investigating ship to vanish]].

-->'''Kim:''' I've never seen anything like it!
-->'''Tuvok:''' Mister Kim, that is a comment we'd prefer not to hear from a senior officer on the Bridge. It makes the junior officers nervous.
