* In the ''{{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.

** The Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures novel ''Conundrum'' by Steve Lyons made the [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks 1960s]] ''Series/DoctorWho'' comics stories a product of the Land of Fiction. (One story in ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' would later feature those stories as another product of the Doctor's imagination.)

* The fourth volume of Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire mentions several statues of various gods of death in the House of Black and White, including that of Bakkalon, also known as the Pale Child.
