* These make up a good number of the vehicles in ''VideoGame/{{Calculords}}''; naturally they're piloted by TheGreys. Most have the "Flying" ability, which grants immunity to SplashDamage, almost all {{Herd Hitting Attack}}s, and land mines. The enemy commander Uracillon, himself a Grey alien, makes extensive use of saucer units.

* The ''[[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disneyland]]'' documentary episode "Mars and Beyond", while speculating on possible intelligent life on Mars, shows an animated flyer saucer, rapidly followed by a [[RuleOfFunny flying (lit) cigar, a flying lampshade and a flying water bottle]]. [[UsefulNotes/TheSpaceRace Wernher von Braun]] objected to what he saw Hollywood frivolity, so the narrator suggests that humanity will one day develop an 'electromagnetic drive' vessel, presented in the form of a flying saucer. The final scene shows several flying saucers zooming over a [[DomedHometown domed]] human colony on Mars, ascending into a giant mothership saucer [[AndTheAdventureContinues which flies off into interstellar space]]. Also worthy of note are the 'umbrella ships' of the Mars Expedition Fleet, each topped with a huge round heat radiator for the atomic generator.
