* According to ''Franchise/TheMuppets Character Encyclopedia'', the reason the Gogolala Jubilee Jugband was replaced by Lubbock Lou and his Jughuggers between seasons one and two of ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' was due to a dispute over putting a hole in a washtub - a reference to a completely unrelated [[Film/EmmetOttersJugbandChristmas Henson production jugband]].

* Creator/PeterDavid loves to cross media with these. Trans-Sabal from Creator/MarvelComics shows up in his Arthurian trilogy. And then there's [[StarTrekNewFrontier Morgan]]...

* In K.A. Applegate's ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' Jake's decision to "ram the Blade Ship" in the series' ending mirrors Elfangor's decision to ram an enemy ship in ''The Andalite Chronicles''. While Elfangor won his battle involving that tactic, the result of Jake's decision is unclear.

* There's a sort of meta-MythologyGag in the ''Literature/PastDoctorAdventures'' novel ''The Indestructible Man'', which pastiches all Creator/GerryAnderson's work (except ''Series/SpacePrecinct''). In ''{{UFO}}'', SHADO's FrontOrganisation was a movie company, because it meant they could save money by filming backstage at Pinewood Studios. In the book, SILOET's FrontOrganisation is the British TV and Film Corporation, based in Shepherd's Bush, meaning that if it was a real episode of 60s ''Series/DoctorWho'', they'd use Creator/TheBBC Television Centre for the same purposes.

* In the ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' children's book ''Desert of Danger'', Mata Nui first tries to defeat a sand bat by knocking off it's mask, which was a very common theme back when the toy-line first started. Another character instantly points out that in this new world Mata Nui found himself in, animals don't wear masks. Even so, the book's artist did use an older bat-themed mask as a reference for drawing the sand bat's head.

* In Creator/KimNewman's horror novel ''Literature/BadDreams'', a composer is shown a vision of a potential future in which he lives a long and happy life but never creates any more great music. One of his hypothetical collateral descendents, an artist in a medium that hasn't been invented yet, has the same name and occupation as the protagonist of Newman's earlier science fiction novel ''The Night Mayor''.

* ''Literature/AutobiographyOfRed'' has a case that is more literally mythological than most. In the version of his autobiography that Geryon writes in elementary school, he says that he has six arms and six legs, keeps a herd of red cattle, and gets killed by Herakles. None of these things literally happen in the book's main continuity; they come from the original myth.
