* ''SuperSentai'' used to add sidecars to non-Red-Rangers' bikes, such as in ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'' (the bikes never really made it to [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers MMPR]] except for a stock footage slip-up). Especially notable is the sidecars from ''Series/NinjaSentaiKakuranger'', which connected end-to-end to form a catapult for launching the Red bike!

* In the ''OnTheBuses'' TV series, the family (except for Stan, who drives the bus) has only a motorcycle and sidecar to transport. There are many mishaps.

* ''To The Apocalypse in Daddy's Sidecar'' by AbneyPark. The song was based on the songwriter's kindergarten-age daughter writing this as a response to the question "If you could be anywhere in the world, where would you like to go?" Let me remind you: this is a ''4 year old girl'' saying this. Of course, "apocalypse" was misspelled.

* ''{{X-COM}}: Apocalypse'' has [[http://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=Hoverbike_%28Apocalypse%29 hoverbikes]], with top engines slightly faster and more nimble than the VTOL fighter plane. Its sidecar provides one weapon mount good enough for most of fighters' weapons. As in, an autocannon or missile with miniature fusion warhead.

* Sidecars were very popular in the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc during the first post-WWII decades. Cars were out of reach for most working people, while the sidecar motorcycle provided the needed transportation for people and goods. Factories stuck to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalashnikov_Concern dated]] [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMZ-Ural pre-WWII]] designs for being rugged and easier to maintain.

* Surely the ultimate example: in Neal Stephenson's ''SnowCrash'', Raven rides around on a bike, the sidecar of which is a NUCLEAR WEAPON. A nuclear weapon keyed to explode [[DeadManSwitch if his heart stops beating]].
