* While not the focus of the timeline, the Columbine massacre is mentioned in the AlternateHistory ''Literature/AGiantSuckingSound'' and is slightly worse than the real life massacre (Harria and Klebold succeed in burning the school down), with more emphasis put on the killers' alleged Neo-Nazi ties due to being seen within the context of a series of far-right terrorist attacks. [[spoiler: [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming President Ann Richards chooses not to exploit the massacre for political gain and instead meets with victims of the massacre to listen to what they have to say.]]]]

* ''VideoGame/KingpinLifeOfCrime'' [[TooSoon had the unfortunate timing of being released in June 1999]], just two months after the massacre, because even though the development team of Xatrix Entertainment became aware of the massacre and implemented a "safe" version[[note]]a password protected game mode which meant that the game would play with low violence and bleeped out expletives[[/note] in response to the criticism in the National Institute on Media and the Family's 1999 report on violent video games (and its CEO, Drew Markham, stated that the game was never meant for children), MoralGuardians and {{Media Watchdog}}s ordered various retail stores (save Electronics Boutique) not to stock the game in shelves.

** Others have claimed that that the first game was mostly banned because the main character [[GayOption could be homosexual.]] Which would normally be okay, but unfortunately, [[DoubleStandard the main character is male.]]

* Several ''KingOfTheHill'' episodes which dealt with mental illness, suicide, and death were not rerun on Denver-area Fox affiliates or syndicated on other area channels for some time after the massacre. These included the "Propane Boom" two-part arc about the Mega-Lo-Mart explosion, Hank's ensuing fear of propane, and [[spoiler: Luanne's difficulty grieving for Buckley's death]], "Pretty, Pretty Dresses" about Bill's suicidal depression, and "Dog Dale Afternoon" which contains a scene where Dale is [[ItMakesSenseInContext mistaken for a sniper in a college bell tower and Hank is then shot by police but survives since he is wearing a bulletproof vest]].

* The film ''Dawn Anna'', starring Debra Winger in the title role, was about the mother of one of the victims of the shooting, detailing her struggles with brain cancer not long after meeting her future husband. After being cured of the disease, her daughter, Lauren Townsend (played by [[HeyItsThatGuy a young]] Creator/{{Tatiana|Maslany}} [[Series/OrphanBlack Maslany]]), is [[DiabolusExMachina killed in the Columbine massacre]]. Yes, it's a [[LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek Lifetime movie]] -- what, are you surprised?

** This is also probably the number one reason why the American remake is stuck in DevelopmentHell. Nobody wants the controversy that would accompany a film like this. In fact, when the remake was announced, one major ''Battle Royale'' fansite had the headline "HELL FREEZES OVER".
