* ''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.

The American equivalent of the BBCQuarry and HereThereBeLions, 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.
