* ''Series/ModestyBlaise'': In "The Hanging Judge", a kidnapped nurse uses her fingers to tap out her location on the video of her her kidnapper sends to her parents. Modesty and Willie are able to decode her message and stage a rescue mission. However, it takes them several days of studying the video before they realise she is sending a message and that the tapping is not just a nervous tic.

* Played with in ''[[FanFic/SovereignGFCOrigins Origins]]'', a ''Franchise/MassEffect''[=/=]''Franchise/StarWars''[[spoiler:[=/=]''[=Borderlands=]''[=/=]''[=Halo=]'']] MassiveMultiplayerCrossover. On one hand, nobody in this universe really knows Morse since it was phased out in favor of "blink-code" (for the Systems Alliance anyway). That said, [[spoiler:Cortana]] knowing Morse isn't really a surprise, and it is later revealed that the message was intentionally phrased so that only certain people would respond. Transmitting in Morse may have been part of that as it has never been established that ''Borderlands'' uses Morse in any significant capacity (though [[FridgeLogic how anyone in that galaxy then knew how to use it]] is another question entirely...) It does start out with the most-well-known pattern ("SOS").

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G11a1n2e6Ok music]] that plays when you first enter Divine Beast Vah Ruta has faint beeping sounds that spell out S.O.S. in Morse code.
