In The Seventh Voyage of SinbadEdit
Two Cyclops are featured in this film. The first appears when the sorcerer Sokurah tries to steal a magic lamp, presumably hidden in the cyclops' trove.
The same cyclops captures and begins to roast Sinbad's crew to eat them, until he is distracted by a group of drunken sailors, whom he crushes with a tree.
While Sinbad and his crew escape, the Cyclops then moves his attention towards Sinbad and the sorcerer, but is blinded by Sinbad's torch. He is then lured to a cliff, where the creature plummets to its death.
The second is seen adventuring into Sokurah’s cave, but is killed by the Dragon.
- The cyclops is given a shout-out in the episode Little Gift Shop of Horrors of the cartoon series Gravity Falls.
- The cyclops from the film makes a cameo appearance in the 2018 Steven Spielberg movie, Ready Player One. It first appears walking around the Oasis, and it later appears in the charging crowd of Oasis avatars during the final battle on Planet Doom.
