* ''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. Fans of [[Creator/GeorgeRRMartin the author's]] other works might recognize this as the name of a deity in his "The Thousand Worlds" setting, in particular the 1975 novelette "...and Seven Times Never Kill Man!"
