The painting has been reused repeatedly, for instance, to promote a Canadian musical. It was used as the cover of the board game Fantastiqa. A painting using the same man with his back turned, titled "Wanderer" appears within the computer game Minecraft. The title of the painting is the name of a song in Wolves in the Throne Room's 2009 album Black Cascade. From the 1960s on, Gotthard Graubner's "fog spaces", one of them entitled Erster Nebelraum - Hommage à Caspar David Friedrich (1968) was clearly inspired by Friedrich's Wanderer above the Sea of Fog. In 2008, the painting was used as inspiration for the promotional image of David Tennant as Hamlet at the RSC. The German tenor, Jonas Kaufmann, uses this painting on his Decca CD of Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven, Wagner arias. He is pictured face forward replacing the back view of the "Wanderer". The painting is also used on the cover of the Thus Spoke Zarathustra Barnes and Noble Classics edition and on the cover of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (Dover Thrift Edition). It is used on the jacket cover of John Crowley's novel Lord Byron's Novel: The Evening Land. The painting is also used on the cover of Acting on Principle Cambridge University Press on Kantian ethics. Canadian musician Ben Caplan references the painting on the cover of his album Birds With Broken Wings featuring a pastiche of Caplan as the wanderer from a different perspective. The painting is on the Deutsche Grammophon cover of the Maurizio Pollini recording of the Schubert Wanderer Fantasy and Sonata in A Minor D 845, catalog number 2465220. Orig Year 4/1/1987 Discs 1 Recording Time 58 minutes. This particular painting was also used for the back cover to the 1985 album The Confessor by former Eagles guitarist/singer Joe Walsh.

A piece of art inspired by the painting is used as the Japanese and North American Box Art for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
