* At one point in ''Manga/Yuria100Shiki'', Yuria becomes convinced she has a "cheat code" to unlock some kind of special abilities. She imagines this cheat along with a ''Gradius'' spaceship.
* Skuld from ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' uses a very similar code (leaving out the B A start in favor of the "set" button twice) to reverse the expansion of her space doubler.
* ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'': during the opening for the MagicalGirl Spoof, Meru's [[ImprobableWeaponUser phone]] is using this code (must be [[GameBreaker Game Breaking]]). [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsyydNv4iq8]]
* Used in the third episode of ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' anime to help Keima to dance with Mio.
* In-universe example in ''Manga/ShamanKing''. Apparently putting in the Konami code on the Oracle Bell pulls up information on all the competitors in the tournament.

* In the anime ''Anime/PaniPoniDash'', an ancient civilization's language is deciphered as this code. A news bulletin mentions that "Professor [[TokimekiMemorial Tokimemo]]" believes that it is incomplete and will cause an explosion.
* One of Amelia's over-the-top ForGreatJustice speeches in ''Manga/{{Slayers}} NEXT'' actually has the code scrawled over the bottom of the screen during her DramaticFingerPointing.
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', you can see the Konami code on a post-it on a door, just in passing, in Fuery's cache (vol. 11 or 12)

[[AC:Comic Books]]
* In Matt Fraction's [[ComicBook/TheDefenders Defenders]], Black Cat is trying to activate an artifact while in freefall.
-->'''Black Cat''': Come! on! stupid! claw! Up Up Down Down B A Start? [''claw activates''] Oh, you gotta be kidding--
* In the ''Divergence: Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}'' teaser comic, Batgirl is trying to rescue people from a DeadlyGame created by insane video game designers. Towards the end, she's told one of the designers always includes cheats, and enters the code in a direction pad on the wall.. A panel slides open to provide her with an energy mallet.

[[AC:Film]]
* Featured in a plot relevant manner in ''Disney/WreckItRalph'', where King Candy uses the Konami Code to get super-user privileges to ''Sugar Rush'', rewriting it to his advantage.

[[AC:Literature]]
* In the ChooseYourOwnAdventure book ''Literature/CanYouSurviveTheZombieApocalypse'' by Max Brallier, you at one point fight off a zombie at ComicCon using an old NES - smashing the console up into the zombie's jaws twice, then down on his head twice, then two quick left-right combinations. You then give yourself a B for originality and an A for execution before '''start'''ing to push the Zapper through the zombie's brain. [[spoiler: You still die. Cheaters never win.]]
* Creator/JessGulbranson's story [[MeaningfulName "Extra Lives"]] in [[http://www.amazon.com/Amazing-Stories-Flying-Spaghetti-Monster/dp/1936383977 the ''Amazing Stories of the Flying Spaghetti Monster'' anthology]] features a crazy cult who [[spoiler: use the code as [[MadnessMantra their worship chant]]]]

[[AC:Live-Action TV]]
* One of the characters in a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' sketch on a ski lift, played by the host, skier Jonny Moseley, references the code.

--> Just because we use cheats doesn't mean we're not smart
* ''Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver'' has John discussing the inability to have a same-sex marriage in Nintendo's ''VideoGame/TomodachiLife''. He jokes that you can use a civil union cheat code, "Up, Up, Down, Down, Be, Gay, Be, Gay, Start", but it's just not the same.

* From nerdcore rapper ytcracker's song "n.e.s.":
--> ''Up up down down left right left right,''
--> ''Then B A Start, the screen goes white…''

* Referenced and shown on the music video "Geek and Gamer Girls" by Team Unicorn.
* The Ataris have a song titled "Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start" on their 2001 album End Is Forever.

* [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Konami]] from ''Webcomics/{{Consolers}}'' wears the code on her shirt collar.
* High Priestess Raisin from ''Webcomic/DragonMango'' often phrases her skills as button combinations, and the Konami Code is one of them. According to her it gives her infinite lives.
* Like the ''Team Fortress 2'' wiki, the ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures'' [[http://mspaintadventures.wikia.com wiki]] employs ENTER as a substitute for START. Typing the code redirects the reader to the article on ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'''s Code Machine.
