* In ''WesternAnimation/WhereOnEarthIsCarmenSandiego'', CarmenSandiego challenges the two detectives to a game of Human Chess in which she's the black king, and the detectives are the white king and white queen. (The other pieces are priceless artifacts that she stole during the episode.) She promises to turn herself in if they checkmate her. [[spoiler:Zack takes her up on it, but Ivy only plays along until she's in a position to take a more direct approach.]]

* The Emperor of the Agatean Empire in ''Discworld/InterestingTimes'' prefers to play with living pieces. It's not shown but [[TheCaligula his insanity]] and screams heard from a distance indicate it's not pretty.
