Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' has an interesting variation- they don't get a map showing the bizarre sea monsters seen on medieval maps, they ''actually see one'' after Griffith causes the real world and astral planes to merge.

Added DiffLines:

* The world map of ''VideoGame/NiNoKuniIIRevenantKingdom'' is illustrated in this style, with a picture of a sea-monster and a mermaid.

Added DiffLines:

** One sourcebook has a Skaven map which uses the Skaven vernacular, in which the Chaos Wastes, populated, if at all, by mutant monstrosities, is labeled [[BuffySpeak "Thing-Things"]].


* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series backstory, Topal the Pilot was an [[OurElvesAreBetter Aldmeri]] BoldExplorer and [[WarriorPoet poet]] who was the first to discover and explore Tamriel during the Merethic Era, encountering primitive versions of the [[CatFolk Khajiit]] and [[LizardFolk Argonians]], as well as a now extinct race of [[BirdPeople bird people]]. A skilled cartographer, Topal was on an in-universe CartographySidequest from the Aldmer to explore and document Tamriel's inland regions, which were very mysterious to them at the time. While he didn't encounter actual [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] (that we know of), he did encounter "cat demons", "human lizards", (believed to be primitive ancestors of the [[CatFolk Khajiit]] and [[LizardFolk Argonians]] respectively) "bat lizards" (believed to be related to Morrowind's Cliff Racers), and a race of now-extinct "BirdPeople".

Do not mistake this with HereThereWereDragons, which is about the existence of magic (and even dragons) sometime in the past of the setting of a fictional work. Also not to be confused with [[WhatTheFuckIsWrongWithYou the fantasy movie review show by Nash of TGWTG]].
