* Lelouch uses one of these with Suzaku in episode 6 of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' - pulling his collar means "meet me on the roof", and Suzaku remembers it after seven years apart. In the audio dramas, they talk about how when they were kids, Lelouch came up with a ''whole language'' of these, to communicate secretly with Suzaku. But Suzaku couldn't remember them all, so Lelouch simplified it.

* The Lambsbridge Gang in ''Literature/{{Twig}}'', a SecretProjectRefugeeFamily, developed a series of secret hand signals to communicate under the noses of their creators. It's not quite a SignedLanguage due to being heavily context-sensitive and lacking real grammar rules, but it is very sophisticated.
