* As shown in the Anime folder, a sidestory of ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' references how Flying-type Pokémon were used for delivering messages, until the method died out as TechnologyMarchesOn. Falkner's father Walker specifically had them work like this before becoming a Gym Leader.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'': in the episode "Fandom Pains", Lucy and the Morticians Club members use messenger bats to send their protest letters and the petition to get the character Tristan removed from ''The Vampires of Melancholia'' to the studio. However, since their demands are not met, it's likely the bats never made it there.

* In the first and second ''Franchise/StarOcean'' game for the SNES, party members could learn to use messenger pigeons to deliver a shopping list and required money to a store. No matter where the party was, the bird would always return with the requested items, whether the party was in a forest, in a cave, or in another dimension! Foiled if you are missing the appropriate perk/attribute/etc. Have a different character send the bird if this happens. The second game had it as well.

* Parodied in ''Film/RobinHoodMenInTights''. When the Merry Men get some info in Nottingham, they wonder how to get it to Sherwood Forest. One of them then says, "We'll [[{{Pun}} fox it to them]]!" Followed by them attaching the message to a fox, which oddly ran off making dolphin sounds.
The parody is on "We'll fax it to them!", as fax machines were enormously popular then. The dolphin warbling is possibly a fax modem parody too.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Hercules}}'' episode "Hercules and the Techno Greeks", when Hercules is appointed the defender of Abacus Valley, he gets a little bird that will seek him out and attract his attention whenever the valley needs defending, which he calls his beeper.
