* In ''Toys/TheGrosseryGang'' webseries episode "Rockyland", one of Rocky's king decrees (flipped and mirrored, but still legible on the scroll) is "Reinstate the Primanocta". [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar This is a kids' webseries, too.]]

* Subverted (or "perverted"?) in the Season 11 episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad!'' ("Gifted Me Liberty") involves Stan trying to hide his failing to buy a Christmas gift for the CIA Secret Santa on someone else. He pins it on an agent who recently died, and at the funeral, CIA Deputy Director Bullock grabs the agent's widow screaming "I DECLARE PRIMA NOCTA!" before dragging her away. Bullock obviously is not a lord or nobility by any means, and this instance is a funeral, not a wedding, but this is indicative and typical of Bullock's borderline reckless insanity.

* Discussed [[PlayedForLaughs for laughs]] in the ninth book of the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'', ''Literature/DustOfDreams''. Chancellor Bugg claims there used to be a tribe where the chief ''and'' his wife had the privilege of bedding imminent brides and grooms the night before the marriage. King Tehol is immediately interested, but Bugg admits he just made that up. Queen Janath, who is incidentally also the court historian, however exitedly exclaims that it's no problem to write such a custom into the histories. The King immediately backpedals.

* A (pseudo-)futuristic version appears in "Literature/TomorrowTown" by Kim Newman, which is set in a supposed twenty-first century society as imagined by a group of 1970s futurists. They claim that their MasterComputer Big Thinks is so advanced that it can pair individuals up with their most suitable life-partner. In what [[SarcasmMode must surely be nothing more than a coincidence]], it has also enabled the community's founder to basically claim another man's wife away from him.

* This was invoked by DoctorDoom once, in a minor way. He was walking through his kingdom one night, saw a family with a beautiful young woman (the daughter) sitting at the dinner table, and came to the door and informed her father that as ruler of Latveria, he had the right to the woman's company. Her father allowed her to go with Doom, but Doom had no underhanded intentions. He just wanted an audience for one of his boastful monologues.

* ''Fanfic/TheLifeAndTimesOfAWinningPony'': ''Jus primae noctis''[[note]]"right of the first night", roughly[[/note]], the right for nobles to take the virginity of any of their subjects, is mentioned as having been in practice in Unicornia around the time of the Lunar Rebellion, nine hundred years before the show. However, it's noted in-universe that there's no proof that it was ever a real thing beyond anti-nobility propaganda and exaggerated rumors of real events.
