* The final boss of ''[[Manga/{{Area88}} U.N. Squadron]]'' is one of these, though it more resembles a flying battleship/dreadnought with a few plane launch hatches. Interestingly enough, the game also features a ''land-based'' traditional aircraft carrier, [[MilitaryMashupMachine which runs on tank treads]] out in the desert.

* ''{{Film/Deadpool}}'' featured a MythologyGag and ShoutOut to ''The Avengers'' with the climactic fight scene taking place on and around a derelict helicarrier (although it never flew, and for [[LawyerFriendlyCameo legal reasons]] it couldn't be called a helicarrier).

* The Soviets also conducted their own experiments in the 1930s called the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zveno_project Zveno Project]], and unlike the other "parasite fighters" mentioned here they were actually used in battle. Tupolev bombers would carry little Polikarpov fighters aloft, the most ambitious version actually carrying five fighters at the same time. The final version has a pair, rolled under the carrier's wings and mounted there instead of bombs. [[http://i16fighter.ru/operational-history/zveno/zvenosh.jpg See photo]]. The interceptor variant was supposed to cut calling fighters time from "scramble and climb all the way up there" to "release bomb locks". The dive bomber variant had a long-range bomber carrying two fighters armed with bombs too heavy for them to take off on their own. These teams flew more than 30 missions, being among the most successful in Soviet aviation before the project ended in 1942 due to the involved aircraft becoming obsolete. You can fly the Zveno aircraft cluster in ''VideoGame/IL2Sturmovik''.

Tupolev heavy bombers TB-1 or TB-3 (slow, but with up to 2000 km range and up to 8 ton capacity) would carry 2-5 little Polikarpov fighters aloft, the most ambitious version actually carrying five fighters at the same time. The final version has fighters-bombers I-4, I-5, I-Z or I-16 (decent speed for late 1930s, but only 600-800 km range). [[http://lemur59.ru/sites/default/files/images/варианты.jpg See possible configurations.]] Some configurations even allowed a pair, rolled parasite I-Z or I-16 to dock under the mother craft after the mission. The most successful version was TB-3 with a pair of I-16 mounted under carrier's wings and mounted there instead in place of bombs.

** ''Film/TheAvengers2012'' features the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier in all its glory. Captain America, fresh from the '40s, claims that nothing will surprise him. He's proven wrong when he sees it liftoff into the sky ([[BrickJoke and loses $10 in the process]]).
** ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', shows that S.H.I.E.L.D. is trying to extend its reach by launching three new helicarriers that Tony Stark fitted with his repulsor technology after his experiences in ''The Avengers''. But [[spoiler: it turns out Hydra designed them to eliminate all possible dissidents and the Cap had to destroy them.]]
