* In ''The Short-Timers'' (a UsefulNotes/VietnamWar novel by Gustav Hasford) the protagonist, GenreSavvy [[DeadpanSnarker private Joker]], sometimes salutes in a combat zone with some [[RevengeByProxy ulterior motives]].

* ''Film/SayAWordForPoorHussar'': near the end, the whole hussar regiment salutes their demoted fellow, recognizing his demotion as unfair and asserting that he is still one of them. He returns the salute with a tear in his eye.

* Being a SpaceNavy series, Anime/IrresponsibleCaptainTylor naturally has its fair share of salutes. Lt. Yamamoto is prone to the teary-eyed variety in certain cases, while episode 23 manages to make a mutual salute from opposing captains ''epic''. And then there's the ending of the final OVA, where everybody in ''both'' fleets salute the ''Soyokaze'' [[spoiler: as it's scuttled]].

Salutes are usually rendered by an officer (of equal or lesser rank than the salutee) or enlisted soldier to an officer of equal or higher rank. The officer, while not necessarily obligated to return the salute, almost universally does. Not returning the salute is a serious show of disrespect and condescension, which reflects poorly on the salutee. This also has another interesting effect: initiating a salute towards an officer of lesser rank or an enlisted soldier, while not considered insulting (generally), is considered weird and out of place. In the United States armed forces and the armed forces of those countries which award the Victoria Cross, there is one exception to this rule: if you are a recipient of the Medal Of Honor or the Victoria Cross, you WILL be saluted by any member of the armed forces, regardless of rank. So yes, this means that [[BadAss badassery]] is worthy of saluting.

* Much like in Final Fantasy XIV above, ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has race/gender-specific salute animations when a player inputs the /salute command. There's the usual military "hand to the brow" and the "fist across the chest" style (more recently seen in Attack On Titan) salutes among others. As one example, the female Blood Elves go for the former, but do so in an almost intentionally mocking fashion. They even lean forward a little juuust to make sure the object of their salute saw it. At least they're using the right hand...

There is also a difference between a standard or "administrative" salute used day-to-day, and a "funeral salute" [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin used only at funerals]]. A regular salute is a quick motion: the saluting hand snaps up, holds until the salute is returned, then snaps back down. In a funeral salute, the saluting hand comes up in a slow, deliberate (three-second) motion, and comes down the same way. The funeral salute is used ''only'' when [[DueToTheDead specifically saluting the dead man being buried]]. An officer attending the funeral will still receive a standard salute. Suffice it to say, using a slow salute for any other purpose is downright offensive.

* In ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' everyone salutes American-style, despite the story taking place in England. The Wild Geese could be justified by the fact that they're mercenaries, who could have learned to salute some place where they do it that way. Seras and Integra (As shown in the 2nd OVA credits) have no such excuse.
