* BillEngvall tells the tale of how he got to fly with the Thunderbirds, which is the U.S. Air Force's demonstration team. Bill admittedly has a bout of AttentionDeficitOohShiny while being briefed for the flight. His spell is broken when the instructor pilot says, "Okay Bill, when you hear your pilot say ''eject, eject, eject...''"

Added DiffLines:

* The ejection procedure is shown in quite a bit of detail in the first ''Film/BehindEnemyLines'' film, even showing how the crew's legs are automatically drawn back towards their seats to avoid getting caught on any instrumentation when the rockets fire.

* The Venom Patrol Craft pilots in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer3TiberiumWars'' explicitly yell "Eject! Eject! EJECT!" in [[OhCrap an increasingly panicked tone]] as one of their lines upon being shot down. However, it can be rather hard to notice, given that the thing [[MadeofExplodium violently explodes]] at the same time.

* ''{{Titanfall}}'' has your [[HumongousMecha Titan's]] computer say this to you when your Titan takes critical damage or you just decide to eject on your own. In ''VideoGame/{{Titanfal; 2}}'', the voice advises you to either eject or get [[HealingPotion a battery]] when heavily damaged, and [[FreezeFrameBonus for an instant while you eject]] the screen displays often bizarre messages, usually [[ShoutOut quotes from other works of fiction]].

Added DiffLines:

If the character is sufficiently badass, expect them to ignore the ejection as they attempt to finish the mission/task they are currently attempting.

* Overly expensive videogame ''SteelBattalion'' combined this with a {{Roguelike}} twist. If you didn't eject in time and died with your mech, your game data was erased.

--> MechCommander 1: The [[GlassCannon Hunchback]] finds itself on the wrong end of a [[LightningBruiser Mad Cat's]] long range missiles and ER Large Lasers. With smoke rising in the cockpit and alarms sounding, the pilot gives the triple call over the comm as he straps down and hits the lever.
--> Mechwarrior 3: Mad Cat vs. [[MightyGlacier Atlas]]. Atlas [[CurbStompBattle winning handily]] (despite missing an arm already) -but too close to survive the resulting core breach. Seeing the characteristic flash, the Atlas pilot ejects.

** The HUD for tanks and hovercraft in ''Living Legends'' flashes the warning "[[http://www.mechlivinglegends.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/mwll-tankhud-concept01.jpg PROCEED TO EMERGENCY ESCAPE HATCHES]]" and "BAIL OUT", when critically damaged and when the fusion reactor is breached. The Chevalier tank will also sound off a klaxon warning when the warnings appear.
