** Unusual measurements are often found in the notes of "Blog/WhatIf". Giraffes make a regular appearance as a measure of height, and the author once described an object's mass in "yoctomoons."

** The gods in ''DragonBallSuper'' measure time in "tiks", five of which are exactly equivalent to 40 hours. It is perhaps fitting that gods would have periods of 8 hours as their smallest unit of time.

* Many ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfics have the ponies measure distance in "hooves" rather than feet. Apparently on the logic that the ponies wouldn't use a unit of measurement named for an appendage they don't have (and ignoring the fact that the original show actually ''does'' use feet). Some authors alsl use "lengths" as "yards," and ''FanFic/ChrysalisVisitsTheHauge'' uses "leaps" as the pony mile.

* ''Series/BattlestarGalactica1978'': according to its TheOtherWiki [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battlestar_Galactica_(1978_TV_series) article,]] the only distance unit that wasn't an Earth name was "metron" (1 meter).

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheLifeAndTimesOfJuniperLee'', june is brewing a potion from a recipe that calls for a "smidgen" of dustroot. (Monroe claims a "smidgen" is "a bit less than a dash" and "a tad more than a pinch".

* ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'': The Numenoreans have the "ranga," which is roughly equivalent to a meter (approximately 38 inches). Two rangar makes an informal unit of measurement called "man-high," the height of the average Dunedain male (they were pretty tall).
