* ''VideoGame/ShadowMan'' has you fighting Marco, a psychopathic DJ with an affinity for disco music, whose boss theme is a funky disco jam with plenty of wah-pedal guitar. Certain versions of the game allow you to turn the entire game into a large disco party with the Disco Mode cheat.

* Also a RunningGag in ''Film/TheMartian'', as the only music left behind ([[TheAloner along with Mark Watney]]) when a manned mission to Mars is abandoned is the [[DiscoDan Commander Lewis's]] extensive collection of disco music, much to Watney's ongoing chagrin. In [[Literature/TheMartian the book the movie is based on]], Commander Lewis also left behind a large stash of 70s TV shows, which Watney ends up spending much of his free time binging on.

* The "Hey, Roosta, I've Just Had This Really Hoopy Idea Incident" sequence in ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'', in which Zaphod's cunning plan to escape AFateWorseThanDeath is to teleport both himself and his friend Roosta to the world's most horrible discotheque (full of robot dancers who make the club look full, and nozzles on the wall that spray hot artificial sweat at attendees). It's shameless {{Padding}} of the "the hero escapes and gets captured again" variety, albeit thinly justified by it turning out that Zaphod's captors set the whole thing up just to fuck with his head, but groovy as well as hilarious.

The music used for this sequence is a horribly distorted version of Music/TheBeeGees' "Stayin' Alive" played backwards with beats removed.

** The sequel has Goofy and Sylvia shaking their groove thing to, well, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ait5pRVCd2g "Shake Your Groove Thing"]]. There is a bit of a lampshade over the outdated aspect of the music, with the DJ blowing dust from the record and the Disco ball coming from a trap full of spiderwebs.

* In ''Film/TheNakedGun 33 1/3: The Final Insult'', there is a flashback of the characters during the '70s in an appropriately Disco setting. Part of the gag is that the actors weren't made up to look any younger -- they are just dressed in Disco-era fashion and with longer hair (including Nordberg [O.J. Simpson] with a FunnyAfro so big he can't get through a door). Even more absurd, the Anna Nicole Smith character appears as a grown woman in the disco scene, even though the actress herself had barely reached puberty when the '70s ended.

* One of the modes in ''Pinball/NoGoodGofers'' is "Dance Party", where Bud and Buzz SummonBackupDancers and perform a dance. Good luck trying to figure out what dancing has to do with gophers invading a golf course...
