* ''Music/DevinTownsend'': Captain Spectacular in Ziltoid the Omniscient is a parody of Star Trek captains. By the Z2 he became much more similar to Captain Space trope.

* In ''Literature/RallyRoundTheFlagBoys'', Oscar Hoffa's work as a television producer includes watching an episode of ''The Adventures of Crunch Crandall, Spaceman'', whose titular hero fights to "save the fair Skarlotta, a Martian lass from the foul clutches of 'It,' the nameless monster of Ursa Minor." Oscar's executive complaints include not seeing enough cleavage on Skarlotta and the monster looking like "a faggot."

[[folder: Film -- Animated ]]

* Uncle Art in ''Disney/MeetTheRobinsons'' (voice, appropriately enough, by Creator/AdamWest) is a subversion--his spaceship is a conveyance for delivering pizza.
* Zig-zagged by [[TheLancer Buzz Lightyear]] of ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', which plays up the parody factor because we see so little of the in-universe Buzz Lightyear franchise that it wouldn't stand out otherwise. The {{spinoff}} cartoon ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' is more of a straight SpaceOpera for kids once it had room to stretch its legs.
* Captain Sternn from ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal'', although we don't get to see his [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking exploits]], just the trial.

** Around this same time, a "Future Shock" strip penned by Creator/AlanMoore centered around Rocket Redglare--"Golden-Haired Guardian of the Galaxy, Steel-Eyed Sentinel of the Spaceways, and Enemy of Evil Extra-Terrestrials." He's been living out his life as a washed up retiree, ever since he defeated his Meng the Merciless -styled arch enemy.

* Zapp Brannigan of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', although unlike most examples he is explicitly a parody of [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Captain Kirk]] (his character was originally pitched as "What if Creator/WilliamShatner was captain of the Enterprise rather than Kirk?).
