* Not too common but known in ''PerryRhodan''. The Yülziish civilization (perhaps better known by their English-language nickname "Blues") does traditionally use disk-shaped starships, Terran-built "Space-Jets" are small secondary and scout craft constructed along similar lines, and the aliens behind the ''original'' flying saucer sightings eventually put in an appearance as well (they turn out to work for the setting's notional forces of "order" and encounters typically involve only a single actual alien with the rest of the crew being subservient androids). In the latter case, the "saucers" are once again actually secondary craft; the bigger and more rarely seen motherships are instead cylindrical.

** Spoofed in ''Sev Trek: Pus in Boots'' where the saucer section is used to transport a meal of chicken drumsticks, chips, peas and [[EdibleAmmunition crouton torpedoes]], all of which fall off when the ship goes to warp

* ''Franchise/StarTrek'': Federation's standard design for non-shuttlecraft ships, each one is composed of a circular or oval saucer attached to 2 or 3 warp narcelles attached in different places. Picard's version can separate its saucer section from its star-drive section, though the budget prevented ThePowersThatBe from having it do this with any regularity.

* The goal in ''VideoGame/WiiParty'''s minigame Saucer Snap is to photograph it. It zooms from one side of the screen to the other and the Mii with the most centered photograph wins.

** A very small flying saucer appears behind [[spoiler:the cathedral in the Lunar Kingdom]] in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'', where it behaves like a little bird, flying away when Mario approaches. Additionally, the Broodals sometimes retreat in their hats during battles and fly, making them look like [=UFO=]s.
** There's also the boss Torkdrift in the Steam Gardens level, as well as an enemy called a Yoofoe which is clearly based on the idea.
