* In the Creator/StephenKing novel ''{{Firestarter}}'' the hero muses that these people must have showed up at his home shortly after he found the dead body of his wife (murdered by a sinister GovernmentAgencyOfFiction) and then left his home forever to chase after his powerfully pyrokinetic daughter (kidnapped by the aforementioned sinister GovernmentAgencyOfFiction).

* Mentioned briefly in ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'', when Lord Vetinari orders his secretary to have someone paint over the disturbing Hiroshima-esque shadows on a wall where some bandits got obliterated, so as to quell rumours of Ankh-Morpork being attacked by a dragon. His secretary points out that fresh paint in [[TheCiyNarrows The Shades]] would [[RevealingCoverUp just make it obvious that someone had something to hide]], so the Patrician amends it to having the wall demolished. If his secretary ever ends up getting around to doing this it really doesn't help.

* ''Series/PersonOfInterest''. In "Control-Alt-Delete", Finch expresses disbelief that Control (in charge of the nation's black ops anti-terrorism unit) hasn't heard a thing about their shoot-out with Samaritan agents beneath the New York Stock Exchange, deriding her efforts as "just a clean-up crew" for Samaritan. At the end of the episode Control goes to look for herself and finds the whole place spic-and-span. Except when she runs her finger along the wall, fresh paint comes off.

* ''VideoGame/FEAR'': Armacham Technology Corporation's security guards engage in an effort to cover up their illegal experiments, which are directly responsible for the strange ghostly phenomenon in Fairport. And in case their standard guards can't do the job, they have an army of hired mercenaries who will destroy all the research facilities and kill all witnesses, including Armacham's own president, whom the board of directors blames for the mess as she stirred up the paranormal activity to begin with against their warnings. However, Armacham's cover up efforts were likely dealt a blow when their clean up crews attacked ''U.S. Military personnel''. Now the government's on to them.

* One of the three paths available to anyone unfortunate enough to play VideoGame/ResidentEvilSurvivor involves taking on an army of pseudo-human soldiers dispatched by Umbrella to destroy all evidence of the game's events. Tragically they fail to expunge the game itself from everyone's collective memory.

* ''HalfLife'': The Hazardous Environment Combat Unit or H.E.C.U. is sent by the government after the Resonance Cascade (the accident that unleashes the aliens from another universe) to fight off the invasion, but also to silence anyone who worked on the project. Most of them are not happy about it. And when they can't do the job, the government sends in Black Ops units who begin ''[[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder killing all the remaining H.E.C.U. forces as well]]''
* You play as these guys in VisceraCleanupDetail, [[{{Tagline}} the space station janitor simulator]]. (Oddly enough, only one of the levels is clearly on a space station, the rest are the aftermath of scenes from a generic scifi-horror games/movies). Your job includes cleaning up bodies, [[LudicrousGibs gibs]], [[PaintTheTownRed bloodstains]], [[SpentShellsShower shell casings]], and fixing bullet holes in the walls. Essentially make the place look like a massive mutant-on-marine fight didn't occur, and ready for reopening for operation.
** There's also released DLC that places you in the cleanup detail for a temple in the new [[ShadowWarrior2013 Shadow Warrior]] and the workshop from Santa's Rampage.
* Videogame/TeamFortress2's Miss Pauling is the mercs' cleaner. She's much more level headed than the mercs, but still crazy enough to shoot incapacitated survivors, witnesses, and giant monsters made of bread tentacles. It's pretty justified; her boss rules the planet, her co-workers are violent psychopaths who kill each other and come back to life, and she only gets one day off a year.

* In Creator/MartinMcDonagh's play ''TheLieutenantOfInishmore'', Padraic and Mairead force Donny and Davey (his father and her brother, respectively) to "get chopping" on the three people they've just killed-- or else the CleanupCrew will be the next to die. [[BloodyHilarious Oh, and it's a comedy.]]
* In Creator/HaroldPinter's play ''TheDumbWaiter'', two hitmen discuss what happens after they have done their work and left the scene. They come to the conclusion that their organization must have a CleanupCrew that they have never seen.
