- All in-universe myths are true. There are two subtypes that might have their own tropes already: a) all real-world religions are true, and b) all prophecies are true.
- All stories, at least in some particular category, are true, either because a) The Multiverse makes it so or b) it's a Massive Multiplayer Crossover setting.
- The most interesting potential trope: all myths or fantasy creatures are explained by something within the story. This is the Grand Unifying Myth mentioned above. A form of Doing In the Wizard, except not.
- One particular myth is true. I don't think this should count, or is really a trope, but some of these might fall into one of the others given more context.
- Shaman King: 3
- Devilman: 3
- Guyver: 3
- Spice and Wolf: Zero-Context Example
- Yu Yu Hakusho: 4
- Arago: 3
- Wisdom: 1a, I guess, could be considered 4
- The Eternals: 3
- The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 2b
- Crisis on Infinite Earths: 2a
- Cosmic Warriors: 4
- The Number of the Beast: 2a
- Harry Potter: ZCE, from what I know probably belongs in Fantasy Kitchen Sink, might be 1
- One for the Morning Glory: ZCE, possibly 1 or 2b
- Harold Shea: 2a
- John C. Wright: 1a
- The Dalemark Quartet: 1
- Neil Gaiman: ZCE (it literally says X Just X)
- Principia Discordia: Possibly 1, possibly 2, it's that kind of story
- Out of Their Minds: ZCE
- Discworld: ZCE
- Dune: 1b
- The Well of Ascension: 1b
- Magic: The Gathering/Lord of the Wastes: Sorta 1
- His Dark Materials: See above, seems to be 3
- Young Wizards: 3
- Quartermass: 3
- Mage: the Awakening: 1 is probably the trope being subverted
- Dungeons and Dragons/Eberron: 1
- The Elder Scrolls Oblivion: Maybe 1b if you really squint
- Chrono Cross: ZCE, possibly an aversion to 1
- Thunderstruck: Subversion of 1a
- Abe Kroenen: Subversion of 4, which therefore might be considered a subversion of one of the others
- Wayward Sons: 1a, sort of
- Tasakeru: 1 or 3
- Roswell Conspiracies: 3
- Sleeping Beauty: This is the opposite of the title, so I don't think it should count. See below.
- Stranger in a Strange Land: This is basically one agnostic character. Probably shouldn't count.
- Myths of Magic: Explicitly false.
- The Elder Scrolls Morrowind: This is an "exception" where everyone has a different myth they tell and only one of them is true; Sleeping Beauty should be considered an exception of this type. Not sure what trope it's an exception to, though.
- Fire Emblem: One particular myth turns out not to be true and a cover for a different myth. So, sorta 4?
- The "Other" Example: Aversion of The Legend of Chekhov and inversion of one of the above, in that everything they encounter turns out to have an associated myth, followed by numerous myths turning out not quite to be true as is
