The Bermuda Triangle

Go To
Three cities, three lines and a thousand mysteries.

It might be hole down in the ocean,
Yeah, or a fog that won't let go.
It might be some crazy people talking,
Or somebody that we ought to know.
Down in Bermuda, the pale blue sea,
Way down in the triangle, it's easy to believe.
Fleetwood Mac, "Bermuda Triangle"

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 Stock Unsolved Mysteries, such as the fate of the crew of the Mary Celeste). Often, it will turn out that something really weird is involved with the area, such as aliens, paranormal activity, Eldritch Abominations, Atlantis, or something even weirder. If the events are of human origin, it's still something weird like an Ancient Conspiracy or the work of a dangerous Cult.

Part of the Hollywood Atlas. The Bermuda Triangle is a region of the Sargasso Sea found in the Atlantic Ocean, much of which is south-west of the coast of Bermuda. Before it became popular in pure Speculative Fiction, the triangle started out as an Urban Legend. Although that legend has since been discredited,note  it continues to live on through its popularity in fiction.

Part of the reason it exists in fiction is that latitude was always much easier to find at sea than longitude (which required an accurate clock), so ships tended to aim for the right latitude then sail east or west as needed. Even this was easier said than done when it came to finding oceanic islands like Bermuda. In other words, it was easy to get lost on your way to Bermuda. The other problem is the geography around the island itself. The southern side of the island is relatively safe, but the northern side is rife with reefs, shoals shoulder to shoulder. The number of wrecks north of the island is an order of magnitude greater than those on the south side, giving it an unsavory reputation.

Several years before this, anime Filler had independently placed a time-warping Eldritch Location called "Apes' Concert" (aka the Rainbow Mist) on the Grand Line.

  • 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.

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.

  • The Jennifer Morgue has the Triangle as one of several sites heavily colonized by the Deep Ones, a species of Sufficiently Advanced Aliens 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.

  • The Last Day Of Creation by Wolfgang Jeschke. The US Navy started the original Urban Legend as a Gas Leak Cover-Up for their experiments in time travel, held away from the continental United States for safety reasons. However it's suggested that the artificial gravity bubbles moving back in time have destroyed aircraft and ships caught up in their wake, as fragments of debris and human remains have appeared on the 'landing platform' set up in Bermuda in the past.

In both card game versions of the game, this Illuminati conspiracy is one of the playable factions. In the Tabletop RPG version, it's one of the mysterious forces that the characters might have to investigate.
