* The protagonist of the Creator/DouglasAdams text adventure ''[[{{Infocom}} Bureaucracy]]'' doesn't encounter any black helicopters, but they're the topic of one of the CopyProtection questions you may be asked.

* ''Series/{{Airwolf}}'' was intended to be one of these, until its test pilot made off with it to become HeroesRUs. Its actually painted dark gray with a white belly.

--> '''Manderly:''' If black helicopters were really being used for 'covert operations,' then those responsible are doing a poor job of it.

A somewhat dubious TruthInTelevision, as Black Helicopters are an ingredient of many real-life [[ConspiracyTheorist conspiracy theories]]. Possibly influenced by dark painted helicopters that get mistaken for black in poor lighting conditions while performing disappointingly mundane operations. Though it should be obvious, helicopters are actually [[AwesomeButImpractical very, very terrible at stealth.]] There is simply no way to make them completely quiet, they have next to zero endurance, they are slow, vulnerable, ruinously expensive, and restricted to low altitudes[[note]]and all of these things are made worse by stealth modifications, which can add hundreds of pounds to the airframe, mess with aerodynamics, alter the lift of the blades, etc[[/note]]. Even the now-infamous super-secret Seal Team 6 choppers had slight noise reduction and were only cloaked ''to radar,'' and even that was imperfect. [[UsefulNotes/PlaneSpotting Military Plane-Spotters,]] take note.

** The Combine's Hunter-Choppers from ''VideoGame/HalLife2'' are also black helicopters, except they are not stealthy and are dedicated attack gunbirds.

* Blackout from the ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' movie. Megatron in ''TransformersAnimated'' is also a futuristic helicopter. The [[TheMenInBlack Sector 7]] agency also has a few of these choppers, which are used to try and track down the Autobots and for prisoner transport.
