* In the Paarfi novels set in ''Literature/{{Dragaera}}'''s historical past, Zerika's journey through the Paths of the Dead is depicted in this way, with every obstacle or environment she encounters reflecting the fundamental nature of one of the 17 Houses.

* ''ThePath'' runs wild with this trope, as it's a metaphorical horror take on the Red Riding Hood story. Why are six girls named after different shades of red each visiting their creepy grandmother one by one, walking through the woods alone and confronting [[spoiler:a shapeshifting being that leads them to a nightmarishly transformed version of grandma's house]]? Well, it's because the wolf represents temptation, grandma's house symbolizes death (or adulthood), the path is a metaphor for obedience, the girls embody different stages of adolescence...

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/YumeNikki'' is ''[[UpToEleven all about this trope]]''. [[NoPlotNoProblem There's no real plot or dialogue,]] just the journey of a little girl in her MentalWorld. [[spoiler: Though it ''does'' have an ending, in which she [[DrivenToSuicide commits suicide]]]].

* Played straight by Creator/StewartLee in his ''Comedy Vehicle'' series. when asked by Creator/ChrisMorris what he meant by a line in his standup routine, that the £200 million London skyscraper which melted a £50,000 Jaguar was a 'superb' piece of 'heavy-handed satire'. Lee admitted that he didn't know what he meant by it and he only said it because it sounded clever, then going on to say that those who laughed at the line done so 'in an attempt to pass themselves off as "clever"'.

** Bunyan also wrote a less well-known allegorical novel called ''The Holy War,'' in which [[{{God}} King Shaddai]] and his son [[{{Jesus}} Emmanuel]] fight against [[{{Satan}} Diabolus]] for rulership of the town of [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory Mansoul]]. This one dispenses with the AllJustADream disclaimer, and is considered much less successful.

* ''Film/JohnWick'' and its sequel ''Film/JohnWickChapter2'' are chock-full of mythological and historical references, usually to Greek myths, fairy tales and Christianity. For example, the concierge of the Continental hotel is called Charon, ferryman of the dead in Greek mythology, signaling the parallel between the "world of the dead" of Greek mythos and the world of crime in the movie. Second movie even has two of its primary antagonists be called [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ares Ares]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Cassian Cassian]] to drive the theological motifs home. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3P1ejh9pGs&t=467s One video attempts to collect all the parallels made in the first film]] and it ''still leaves quite a few out''.

* ''VideoGame/RuleOfRose'' is arguably [[spoiler:AllJustADream]], but it's still got symbolism coming out its ears, and it's never made clear what most of it means and what actually happened to Jennifer.
