* Not featured directly in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity'', but in-game adverts for [[http://gta.wikia.com/Degenatron "The Degenatron"]] talk about "save the green dots with your fantastic flying red square!" and so on, as a parody of the limitations of early 80's videogames.

Added DiffLines:

* The eventual BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is a maniacal, one-eyed triangle named Bill Cipher. Supplementary in-character interviews suggest his home dimension is much like what's described in Flatland, [[WhereIWasBornAndRazed and he burned the whole place down for his own goals]]. When he's given a physical form he becomes a PhysicalGod, able to warp reality at whim and [[OneWingedAngel assume a monstrous form]] as a three-dimensional, multi-armed pyramid.

* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'': Pinwheeling four-sided sentient triangles also crop up in ''Discworld/TheLightFantastic'', but these are explicable as part of a trainee Shaman's [[MushroomSamba communion with the Sacred Mushrooms]].

As [[SinisterGeometry perfect geometric shapes can be unnerving]], such a being often feels truly alien. Their perfect shape often implies that they're cold, mechanical and emotionless. That said, sometimes their appearance is simply a result of the [[LazyArtist artists being lazy]].

* In ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' the Angel Ramiel takes the form of an [[https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/270px-Ramiel_RoE.jpg octahedron several hundred meters in diameter]]. Thanks to large advances in computer technology, the creators were able to exploit and show off Ramiel's design much better in ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion''. For a being that almost has a non-Euclidean design, it still has hundreds of gallons of liquid blood packed inside its core.
