** However, the ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianDawn Tiberian Dawn]]'' version of the Orca is something of a subversion - since Tiberian Dawn is set in the year it was originally released, it isn't a "future" copter.
* ''[[VideoGame/{{Battlefield}} Battlefield 2142]]'' has two futurecopters from two opposing sides of the conflict (the Talon for the EU and the Doragon for the PAC).

* Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger plays a future helicopter pilot in ''Film/The6thDay''. Naturally, the copters he flies are Futurecopters, with the ability to switch to a high speed jet mode and be flown remotely using a Power Glove-like arrangement.
** Oddly enough, the villain, being much wealthier than Arnold's character, flies around in a much more mundane Presentcopter, with the ability to switch from a helicopter to a helicopter parked on a helipad.
