* [[Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia Italy and Poland]] both of them used it in different moments. Sadly, they got stuck in a tree immediately after.

* Given its appearance in no fewer than two other media, it is a pretty safe assumption that every iteration of [[Franchise/{{Batman}} the Batmobile]] has an ejector seat. The same goes for the [[CoolPlane Batplane/Batwing]]. One of the ''Batman vs Predator'' titles features a borrowed single-pilot police attack helicopter with an ejection seat, which is odd, because there are very few helicopters with ejection seats. There was only one single-pilot attack helicopter produced ever.

* While most Variable Fighters in the ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' universe have standard ejection seats, the VF-25 ''Messiah'' from ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' is unique in that it doesn't have a seat, per se, but the pilots wear exoskeletons[=/=]mini-mecha (called EX-Gear) that dock with the cockpit. The pilot can then eject and fly away, even in outer space, using their own self-propelled EX-Gear, which has its own wings, thrusters, and limbs.

* ''Series/{{Farscape}}''. In "Die Me, Dichotomy", Aeryn Sun ejects from her Prowler after it's damaged, but she's coming down over a frozen lake. Thanks to the retro-rockets it uses instead of a parachute, the seat melts through the ice, and thanks to a JammedSeatbelt, Aeryn can't get free in time.

* Used for great hilarity in ''Series/RedDwarf''. In the episode SDRAWKCAB Rimmer is conducting the shuttle pilot exam for new crew member Kryten. He instructs Kryten to start the spacecraft and fly it through the cargo bay doors into space. Kryten presses several buttons, which is then followed by a loud "whooshing" sound as Rimmer's ejector seat actives. Rimmer then does it to himself in "Stoke Me A Clipper".

* The original ''Film/BehindEnemyLines'' film shows what happens with a military jet ejector seat: both pilot and RIO eject safely after the plane is critically damaged, but they were flying at relatively slow speeds[[labelnote:*]]Despite trying to dodge a missile, they weren't flying very fast: they were trying to outmanuever it, and the aerial acrobatics required relatively low speed to limit G force[[/labelnote]]. When their parachutes pop, the chairs themselves fall away, broadcasting a distress signal back to home base. The pilot is seriously injured from the ejection and the landing, and the RIO is suitably exhausted and has minor injuries himself.

* ''CommandAndConquerGenerals'' has some US pilots parachute out of their downed planes. Strangely enough, telling them to join a vehicle gives the vehicle the pilot's VeteranUnit status, no matter how many wings it doesn't have.

** In another comic, Mr. Weatherbee decides to take a break in the shop class, where the students have been constructing pieces of an airplane. We next see Jughead reporting that 'The Bee' has hit the ceiling, and because he sat on an ejector seat, that was NotAHyperbole.
