* ''HaveIGotNewsForYou'' has used several variants of an opening animation where UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush throws darts at a map of the Middle East. Version one: The dart landed on "Iraqistan" (later "Saudi Iraqia"), accompanied by a mushroom cloud. Version two: It lands on France. Version three: Instead of a map, the dartboard has four options: Boom, Bust, Bailout and Burger.

* One character in ''OfficeSpace'' has a terrible idea for a variation on this which he calls "Leap to Conclusions", where instead of a dart board it is just a big mat on the floor with different "conclusions" written all over it. The idea is to just "leap" onto the mat when one needs to make a decision and follow whatever conclusion one lands on. Everyone he describes it to thinks it's a terrible idea, but apparently it is his lifelong dream to make it a real product [[spoiler:which he does after getting a fat settlement check for an auto-accident]].

* Unglued, the immortal joke set of ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', gives us the card "[[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=9771 Look at Me, I'm the DCI]]" (the DCI is the body that decides which Magic cards are tournament-legal). The card art is a crude crayon drawing depicting "[[SelfDeprecation the DCI's rigorous decision-making process]]" -- throwing darts at board with cards stuck on it.

* The characters of ''YamiNoMatsuei'' use this method to choose their vacation destination. Apparently this has led them to spend past holidays on deserted islands or in the middle of the ocean.

* How did ''WebVideo/{{Roadkill}}'' start their first episode? A blindfolded Finnegan threw a dart at a map of the US. Wherever the dart landed, they'd buy an [[TheAllegedCar alleged car]] and drive it back home.
** Episode 11, since they were "fresh out of ideas", featured a repeat with Freiburger throwing.
---> '''Finnegan:''' You're in the Gulf of Mexico, dude.
