In fiction, this is usually associated with the otherworldly and all manner of government conspiracies. The most popular theory is that aliens and spacecraft (particularly those recovered from [[RoswellThatEndsWell Roswell, New Mexico]]) are being [[AlienAutopsy held and studied]] there. If any of this tech has seeped into common human use, the assertion may be made that ETGaveUsWiFi. Characters will often out-right deny the existence of the base, despite its existence and uses prior to Roswell being relatively well-known and even documented.

* In Treyarch's continuity of the ''[[VideoGame/NaziZombies Call of Duty Nazi Zombies]]'' series Area 51 is talked about and even showcased a couple of times. The first mention of Area 51 comes in the Nazi Zombies mini-game where the various radio transmissions that expand upon the background story of the Zombies makes a reference to a, "remote base in Nevada." and even gives exact coordinates of where it would be located on a map. Later on in the storyline of Nazi Zombies in the map "Five" John F. Kennedy makes references to Groom Lake, which is talking about the lake that Area 51 is situated on, and the various technological achievements made there. Finally in the Nazi Zombies map "Moon" Area 51 is being assaulted by Zombies and you have to escape them by teleporting to the surface of the Moon but you can come back later if you want though it won't contribute to ending your current round as all rounds can only be fought on the Moon. Beyond the Nazi Zombies universe Area 51 is also a multiplayer map called "Hanger 18" which is a reference to conspiracy theorists who believe that at Area 51 all of the most top secret Military Air-Crafts are all tested there. Also the Element 115 that is constantly referenced in the Nazi Zombies storyline is based off the account of a former Area 51 employee who is stated to have witnessed the substance in action and who said it had reality warping qualities to it.
* In ''UFOAftermath'', after you establish a solid foothold of reclaimed territory, you get the mission objective to check out what the former US government knew about the alien invaders that have killed off the vast majority of humanity. While it turns out that it was a world-wide initiative to investigate and research the Roswell crash, the first location you raid is Area 51.

* In ''Series/StargateSG1'', the Asgard are more or less the classic [[TheGreys Grey aliens]] associated with the site. Furthermore, the base is referred to often as one of the USAF's primary R&D bases regarding captured/acquired alien technology.
** It does become a major plot point in some episodes. In the series finale of ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' [[spoiler:the Wraith kamikaze Area 51 to keep humans from fighting back with the technology stored there.]]
** It is also implied that prior to the Stargate Program, Area 51 was simply a top secret Air Force R&D base. This is probably due to the show being heavily BackedByThePentagon. The Stargate Wiki notes that it explicitly made clear that Area 51 didn't have any alien technology stored there until after the Stargate Program became active otherwise the show would have risked losing their collaboration with the U.S. Air Force.
** Additionally, the SGC is once referred to as Area 52.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'' (more important place in the MythArc; also visited in episodes "Dreamland I & II", where we learn it's just a testing ground - "they build 'em up in Utah.")
** However, the planes being tested there are powered by [[AntiGravity gravity manipulation]] and, as a side effect, cause bystanders on the ground to either [[FreakyFridayFlip swap bodies]] or get [[AndIMustScream trapped phased partway through the nearest object]]... [[BodyHorror or person]].
