* "Lucky" Garnett's lucky quarter in ''Film/SwingTime.'' His friend "Pop" seems to take it more seriously than Lucky himself does, since Lucky is willing to have it changed so Pop can buy cigarettes.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Deewaar}}'': Vijay's dockworker identification badge. His badge number is 786, which one of his co-workers points out is a lucky number in Islam [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basmala#Numerology as it represents Bismillah]] ("In the name of God"). The badge saves Vijay's life twice ([[spoiler:First, it saves him by [[PocketProtector stopping the bullet]] when he's shot by one of Samant's men while stealing the gold back. Later, it saves him when Samant's men try to assassinate him. Anita notices that he left it on the bar counter, and rushes after him to return it. She drops it and they both go to pick it up right when Samant's men fire, causing the shots to miss them both.]]), and [[spoiler:when he eventually loses it, he dies shortly thereafter]].

* ''Film/TheDeadPool''. Quan's tattoos, which his grandfather insisted he get after hearing he was Harry Callahan's partner. Harry tells him a bulletproof vest would be more practical. Fortunately Quan's grandfather also told him, "When your partner gives you advice, take it." The vest saves Quan's life.

* In ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'', the Highwayman can give his "lucky coin" to a teammate to reduce their stress. Given that he can do this, potentially, in every Medium or longer dungeon he goes to, it's likely that he's just ''[[MagicFeather pretending]]'' it has some significance, in order to cheer up his allies.

* ''Big Nate'' of all things has this in the form of a broken-off foot from an action figure. It's left ambiguous whether the charm is genuine or a combination of psychosomatics and coincidence.
