- Hastur was created by Ambrose Bierce in his short story "Haïta the Shepherd" (1893), and was used by Robert Chambers in his Carcosa Mythos. Chambers' version of Hastur was integrated by H.P. Lovecraft into his "Yog-Sothothery" mythos, being briefly mentioned in "The Whisperer in Darkness" (1931), and was later fully incorporated into the Cthulhu Mythos by August Derleth as Hastur the Unspeakable. It has been interpreted both as a place and a being.
- Some characters created by Marvel Comics have been or may have been inspired by Hastur:
- Oshtur's name could be inspired by Hastur's (though it could be inspired by the Mesopotamian goddess Ishtar).
- Knull's title of "King in Black" is a reference to Hastur, the King in Yellow. Furthermore, Knull's spiral emblem is based on the Spiral of Carcosa from True Detective, which is a reference to Carcosa, which is associated to Hastur.
