** In ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', Yubel uses a spell called [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Akashic_Record Akashic Record]]. It allows the user to draw two new cards, which is always a worthwhile gain.

** The Numeron Code in ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL''. Recording all of reality and being able to change it, along with being the card all things originate from. Both Astral World and the Seven Barian Emperors seek the card. Surprisingly enough Don Thousand does not seek the Numeron Code and reveals this to Vector after they kickstart the Assimilation Plot. As long as Astral World is destroyed Don Thousand does not care for obtaining it.

* ''ComicBook/ArcherAndArmstrong'': Several of the conspiracies and Archer have the ability to tap into the Akashic Record, thus instantly gaining whatever ability is required at the moment. At the start of the series, Archer was "only" able to use it to become immediately proficient in whatever martial art or trained ability was needed at the time, but after an encounter with the HARD Corps, has begun making use of their psionic abilities.
* The Book of Oa and the GL Archives from the ''Franchise/GreenLantern'' comics store all the universal knowledge. In [[ComicBook/SupergirlRebirth "The Killers of Krypton"]], ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} is outright told that "If it is not in the archive, it likely didn't happen."
* In ''ComicBook/{{Lucifer}}'', the artificer Scoria's pool where the thoughts of God flow and can be seen counts. Also the Aleph.

* Referenced heavily in the Franchise/{{Nasuverse}} through various means, typically as 'Akasha' or 'The Origin'. Implied to be what most (if not all) magi work towards in their studies, either consciously or not. Those who succeed become Sorcerers, capable of magic that is otherwise utterly impossible, such as TimeTravel and [[AlternateUniverse accessing alternate realities]] (only five mages in all of history have accomplished this). The Grail in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' can be used to open a gate to Akasha [[spoiler:[[PoweredByAForsakenChild by sacrificing all seven Servants]].]] Also, one of the main characters is [[spoiler:[[AnthropomorphicPersonification an avatar of sorts]] for the Record (Ryougi Shiki from ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai.'')]]

Later entries eventually reveal there ''are'' beings who aren't connected to Akasha from "another reality", [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow but they're not the sort of things a normal person would want to be getting knowledge from]].


Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' reveals that while the Akashic Records are the source of the existence of everything within the "Nasuverse", there do exist beings that are not affected by the Origin since they were not "born" from it. These beings are known as "Outer Gods", and they're the InUniverse inspiration for the ''Franchise/CthulhuMythos''.


* In Literature/HorusHeresy novel ''Mechanicum'', a major subplot features [[TheProfessor Forge Master Zeth]] attempting to construct a machine to read [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace the Warp]]. In an inversion of what Warp reading is usually done for (predicting the future), she was trying to create an "Akashic Reader", [[WillingChanneler channeled by hundreds of psykers]], to gain back all scientific knowledge humanity lost over a galactic Dark Age. Unfortunately, it never got off the ground, and in fact was seriously set back when [[PoorCommunicationKills she didn't reveal the full system plans]] of how it would work to her chief assistant.[[note]]The assistant crew was brought in to help with the last and most sophisticated component, but the "power supply" was much stronger than they knew what to calculate for. The backlash killed all of the psykers and nearly destroyed the entire machine.[[/note]] Before Zeth could resume her project, the Horus Heresy came to Mars, which was swiftly embroiled in it's own civil war, in which Zeth, and the plans for the system, was killed, and the Akashic Reader was destroyed utterly. [[CrapsackWorld Can't have nice things happening in the 40K universe, after all...]]

* Right in the title of LightNovel/AkashicRecordsOfBastardMagicInstructor. The Akashic Records are the main goal of multiple groups, who are prepared to do anything to acquire them.


* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', there is a physical skill called "Akasha Arts" that can be used in combat. It doesn't really have anything to do with the Akashic Records, it just hits things.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'', we meet an avatar of the Akashic Record itself, in the form of [[spoiler:Shiki Ryougi's "third personality"]]. Because it is the embodiment of Akasha, it is both [[TheOmnipotent omnipotent]] and [[TheOmniscient omniscient]], but it is also absolutely neutral in all things, neither doing anything nor desiring anything. It only briefly revealed itself to one person, for unclear reasons, and even its "host" is unaware that it exists.
