* The Space Marine's leader in ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' of the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' universe is called Force Commander. 'Force Commander' actually refers to the senior Space Marine officer in charge of a campaign, regardless of how many Chapters are present. For example: Davian Thule is the Captain of the 4th Company, but in Dark Crusade, he was the Commander of the strike forc, having authority over the other companies and their captains present.

* In season one of ''Series/BabylonFive'', Commander Sinclair is in charge of the station with Lt. Commander Ivanova as his NumberTwo.
** Ivanova is promoted to full Commander at the start of season two when Captain Sheridan takes over.
** This is probably because Sinclair was never in command of a ship. The most he ever flew was a Starfury during the Battle of the Line. Sheridan actually had his own ship by the time he was re-assigned to B5.

* Commander Film/JamesBond, at your service. He's addressed as such in ''Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService'' and ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'', and seen in uniform in ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice'', ''The Spy Who Loved Me'', and ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies''.
** Mentioned while he banters with Xenia Onatopp in ''Film/GoldenEye''.
** Even more so in the ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'' continuity. In the original, he was a member of the Royal Navy Reserve. Daniel Craig's Bond was a member of the Special Boat Service, which is the British equivalent of the Navy [=SEALs=]. No wonder he's so brutal in hand-to-hand combat these days.
*** While the Special Boat Service is a Royal Marines unit, Bond's [[AllThereInTheManual service record]] has him being one of those occasional Royal Navy officers who are deployed as Swimmer Canoeists.

* In the ''Franchise/StarWars'' films, this is perhaps the most common rank. By ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', all the Imperial officers were commanders (even Admiral Piett) due to a costuming goof.
** It is a replacement of the rank Major.

* The Space Marine's leader in ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' of the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' universe is called Force Commander. The first game follows the rules for it by having the Blood Ravens work with Grey Knight infantry, but the second game does not involve other chapters, making the Blood Ravens' use of it either unique to their chapter (and likely RuleOfCool).
