Default Real worlds myths and legends that could be re-introuced to Future Tomb Raider Games

Tomb Raider he series used several real world myths and legends. Some of them are included down below. If you feel that some of them weren't fully utilized please explain which one you would pick.

0. Atlantis

Chronicles
1. The Philosopher's stone
2. Spear of Destiny
3. Goetic Magic

AOD
4. Alchemy
5. Nephilim

Legend
6. Arturian Legends

Underworld
7. Viking Myths

Reboot
8. Yamatai

Rise
9. Koschei the deathless
10. Kitezch The sunken City
11. Baba Yaga the Witch

Shadow
12. Patiti

I actually really the Rise real world myths behind Koschei and Kitezch, and I wish that there were more references to those. I wouldn't mind seeing more about alchemy or black magic either.

Weird that you left out The Last Revelation... didn’t it involve the Egyptian gods?
Tomb Raider 3 involved Area 51. Arguably one of the most well known myths as well.
Then Tomb Raider 2 used the famous Asian mythical dragon mythology.

Pretty sure all of the games do this.

I want something gothic like AOD. Nephilum and Alchemists are something we didn't get to finish.

This would be exciting. I feel like we haven't explored it "too" much

I hate that as well...they fricken ruined the idea of himiko being a sun queen....which she was according to history!

I ****ing hated that virus/disease trope. It's so overused...and not in a good way.

They just reduced her to a walking STI
