* WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}: As a direct reference to Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries, the crew winds up on a planet which just happens to have an exact recreation of the rocks. Leela and William Shatner end up fighting (and more besides) on them.

In reality these are known as the [[http://aeve.com/digitaldesert/vasquezrocks/ Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park]], in Agua Dulce, CA (conveniently located about 30 miles north of Hollywood), and were once a hideout of Tiburcio Vásquez, a notorious bandito who was one of the inspirations for the character of Zorro. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasquez_Rocks Here's]] the Wikipedia entry, with a detailed history of "Kirk's Rock" in TV and film.

The American equivalent of the BBCQuarry, a distinctive set of striated sandstone slabs, dozens to hundreds of feet tall, sharply-angled and pointed at their tops. Familiar from its use as an exterior location in any number of ScienceFiction programs and [[TheWestern Westerns]] (including the films ''Film/BlazingSaddles'' and ''The Magnificent Seven Ride Again'', as well as the "Sleestak Diner" scene in ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack''), and no few automobile commercials. It is also the location where the Brandeis-Bardin Institute was composited into for the [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers first]] [[Series/PowerRangersZeo five]] [[Series/PowerRangersTurbo seasons]] of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' as the command center building. The entire town of Bedrock in ''Film/TheFlintstones'' was constructed here. Probably best known from its several appearances on ''Franchise/StarTrek'' over the years (especially the [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Original Series]] episode "Arena"), whence comes the popular nickname for one of the formations (and by extension the entire area). The movie ''[[Film/BillAndTed Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey]]'' [[LampshadeHanging specifically points this trope out]] by having the boys watching said episode, before their robotic duplicates drag them out to the rock to kill them.

* ''Series/DoctorWho''. Homaged in "The Caretaker", which opens with the Doctor and his companion in a NoodleIncident where they've been chained up in the desert to die. A Vasquez Rocks-like formation is in the background.
