The Bermuda Triangle is a popular place for works of fiction to place mysterious events, especially the disappearances of ships and airplanes (sometimes in connection with other StockUnsolvedMysteries, such as the fate of the crew of the ''[[GhostShip Mary Celeste]]''). Often, it will turn out that something ''really'' weird is involved with the area, such as aliens, paranormal activity, {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, {{Atlantis}}, or something even weirder. If the events are of human origin, it's still something weird like an AncientConspiracy or the work of a dangerous {{Cult}}.

Part of the HollywoodAtlas. The Bermuda Triangle is a region in the Atlantic Ocean, much of which is south-west of the coast of Bermuda. Before it became popular in pure SpeculativeFiction, the triangle started out as an [[UrbanLegends Urban Legend]]. Although that legend has since been [[DiscreditedTrope discredited]][[note]]Statistically speaking, the number of disappearances in this particular region are no higher or lower than any other part of the ocean of similar size and weather[[/note]], it continues to live on through its popularity in fiction.

* The adaptation of ''[[Film/GulliversTravels2010 Gulliver's Travels]]'' that stars Creator/JackBlack depicts the title character's adventure beginning after his ship wrecks in the Bermuda Triangle.
* There's a brief shot in the Special Edition of ''Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind'' where [[SaharanShipwreck a ship is in the middle of the Gobi desert]]. It's supposed to be one of the Bermuda Triangle disappearances. The film opens with the discovery of Flight 19, a Navy aviation training exercise that disappeared out of Ft. Lauderdale (the airbase is now Nova Southeastern).

* ''The Bermuda Triangle'' by Charles Berlitz was an instant hit because it pretended to be a real mystery, rather than fiction. The book claims many ships and airplanes have disappeared mysteriously in the Triangle, but the facts in the book were quickly discovered to be falsified. Lots of the ships and airplanes listed never existed in the first place, and others had sunk in other parts of the world. Those that remained were not many enough to be unusual and had sunk under totally normal circumstances, such as extremely bad weather.
** Larry Kusche wrote a book of his own as a rebuttal to Berlitz, ''The Bermuda Triangle Mystery Solved'', where he points out the above errors. Kusche is quite willing to admit that mysterious incidents do happen in the Bermuda Triangle (the fates of the airplanes ''Star Tiger'' and ''Star Ariel'' probably the most baffling ACTUAL mysteries); the problem, he says, is that these incidents happen at roughly the same rates around the entire world and that you can't pin special blame on the Bermuda Triangle.
* ''Literature/TheJenniferMorgue'' has the Triangle as one of several sites heavily colonized by the Deep Ones, a species of SufficientlyAdvancedAliens that live on the ocean floor. The disappearances of ships in the region involve the weaponization of gas deposits - when released, they can cause the water under a ship to rush out momentarily, causing the keel to sink into the void just as the water starts rushing back in. The Deep Ones do this whenever a ship gets too close to finding out about them.
* TheBermudaTriangle shows up in Literature/TimeScout, as possibly explained by an "unstable nexus gate". Basically, one semi-permanent TimePortal that leads to a number of other semi-stable, semi-permanent gates constantly opening and closing. Oh, and it's in warm water.
* In ''Emperor Mollusk vs. The Sinister Brain'', the Bermuda Triangle is the site of a spatial anomaly that would have eventually destroyed the Earth, but Mollusk stabilizes it and uses the focal point (on an island) to hide his MadScientistLaboratory in the (mistaken) belief that no-one can get access to it.
* In ''Literature/{{Curveball}}'', there used to be an island in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle. [[RetGone It's been mostly erased from history, now]]. There's still a remnant, however, that will occasionally appear in the location where the island would have been, to trap unwary ships and planes.
* ''Literature/WeCantRewind'' uses this as a MagneticPlotDevice which takes the characters to a BizarroUniverse where time flows backward. The narrator mentions near the end that only a very few of the disappearances in the Triangle are actually rightly attributed to this phenomenon, while the rest were (probably) from more mundane causes.

The Hardys board a plane that will be flying over the infamous area; Joe finds out about the flight path from a scared passenger and freaks out, though Frank scoffs at the idea, saying science has debunked the whole thing. But the plane runs into trouble: a hurricane hits, the pilots collapse, Frank ends up crash-landing the plane into the ocean, and the passengers take refuge on a deserted island, with the scared passenger saying they're now in another dimension and lost for good.
