* LoadingReadyRun did a video featuring four different superheroes showing up to the same ("M"-shaped) signal. One who was actually called, and three thinking the caller just got the orientation wrong (for E, W, and 3) and it was for them.

* While ComicBook/{{Superman}} has no need for a "Super-Signal", in the opening chapters of ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'', a young kid bought fluorescent yellow paint and spray painted a crude S-shield in the hopes of Superman seeing it, as Lois had been kidnapped by Underworlders. He does.

* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', Paxton Powers uses a makeshift one to summon Batman. He answers but breaks the signal light and tells him facetiously to use email next time.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', there is no official bat-signal, because A) Batman's been gone for quite some time before Terry picks up the mantle, and B) at best, Commissioner Barbara Gordon merely ''tolerates'' the new Batman as opposed to outright supporting him as her father did. In the first season finale, Paxton Powers uses a makeshift one to summon Batman; he answers but breaks the signal light and tells Paxton facetiously to use email next time.
