* In the first Soldiers of Barrabas novel, Billy Two walks in on Alex Nanos [[InterruptedIntimacy while he's having sex]] and announces he's going to re-enlist with the Marine Corps. Alex starts to argue, and eventually they decide to settle the matter with a coin toss. Unfortunately they don't have a coin as they're both naked, so they decide to flip the woman Alex was having sex with ('boobs or butt' instead of 'heads or tails'). She is not amused.

* ''Series/DoctorWho''. At the end of "Thin Ice", Nardole gets annoyed at the Doctor for nicking off to have another adventure in time and space instead of staying on Earth like he promised. The Doctor promises to stay if Nardole wins a coin toss. However earlier in the episode he got the secret of winning a coin toss out of a conman who was using this trick, so Nardole loses.

** Speaking of game shows, they tend to do coin tosses backstage before a show to determine who goes first in a game, most often when there's no returning champion- due to either the format not using them, or because a champion retired the previous episode- or when it's the first episode.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Final Fantasy VI}}'' Edgar and Sabin flip a coin to determine who will be king of Figaro -- or, more specifically, the winner would choose their own path. Edgar flipped TwoHeadedCoin, but called "heads" for Sabin; Sabin chose to leave the castle. Later, Celes borrows the same coin against [[TheGambler Setzer]]. He falls for it. If you bring both Figaro brothers to that cutscene, Sabin is rather appalled to learn the truth about the coin (and it ''is'' that coin, because Celes borrows it from Edgar before she makes the offer).
