** One of Ken's contributions to ''[=GURPS=] InfiniteWorlds'' is a table to randomly generate alternate technologies for one's randomly generated [[AlternateUniverse worldline]]; it has a note that certain results dictate adding zeppelins regardless of the rest of the universe's tech level. Apparently, alternate history just generates airships.

* More like Zeppelins On Another World in ''TabletopGame/RocketAge''. As rocket engines aren't safe in the atmosphere of Jupiter and the other gas giants, ships designed to explore there can be converted into zeppelins.

* A short story that helped set this trope in stone is Howard Waldrop's "Custer's Last Jump". Presented as a historical article from an alternate timeline, it deals with a Battle of the Little Big Horn fought between biplanes piloted by Sioux warriors and George Armstrong Custer's airship-borne paratroopers. The "Notes" mention a famous film made about the battle: ''They Died With Their Chutes On''.

* {{Thorgal}} has {{Mayincatec}} zeppelins. However, it's thanks to the fact that their PhysicalGod ([[spoiler: actually a descendant of the spaceborne humans who left Atlantis]]) is capable of creating the gas to float them.
