** 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".

* In the AlternateHistory story ''Literature/PlayerTwoStart'', one of the butterflies is that [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Polly_Klaas Polly Klaas]] is never murdered, and instead winds up becoming [[BeenThereShapedHistory a Forrest Gump-esque figure]] in the story. Her family moves to Littleton, Colorado in the late '90s, and she enrolls in Columbine High School and interacts with Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. Her presence in the school has a profound impact on the shooting; Klebold drifts away from Harris and refuses to assist in his plot, and ultimately, Harris attempts to do it alone. The massacre winds up a fizzle, with Harris only killing two people: Polly's best friend Caitlyn, and [[DrivenToSuicide himself]]. Afterwards, a video game called ''The Darkest Night''[[note]]A witchcraft-themed, high school-set RPG for the Ultra Nintendo (TTL's version of the UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 64}}) with similarities to ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''[[/note]] winds up having a ton of emotional resonance for Polly given the similarities between its plot twists and her own experience of losing her friend, leading her to become a researcher of video games in adulthood.

* ''Ride/MenInBlackAlienAttack'' at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal Studios Florida]] was originally going to feature the "Tiffany" cutout from the [[Film/MenInBlack first movie]] in the attraction's opening training scene for riders to shoot at; but after the Columbine events had occurred, it was decided that this would be in extremely poor taste.
