* In "Fanfic/TheRoadNotTaken", an AUFic version of [[Fanfic/BaitAndSwitchSTO Kanril Eleya]] is the security chief for Deep Space 9 (as opposed to CO of a ''Galaxy''-class starship in the prime timeline). Early on she arrests a Klingon who's making trouble and gives an apparent Bajoran version of the Miranda warning. (The rights listed are similar to the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miranda_warning#Israel Israeli version]].)
-->“You do not have to say anything, and anything you say may be used against you. Remaining silent may also be used as supplementary evidence. You have the right to contact a family member or acquaintance and an attorney regarding your arrest, and you may be held seventy-eight standard hours without charge. Do you understand these rights as I have explained them?”

In fiction, the Miranda Rights[[note]]The rights themselves exist independent of the court's decision on Miranda - they are in the constitution - and the Warning is only meant to remind you that they exist, although any legal scholar will recognise that, say, the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination falls under the umbrella heading of "Miranda Rights" while the Third Amendment right to not have to quarter troops in your home does not.[[/note]] are frequent victims of HollywoodLaw. In some movies or series, the rights are an inevitable part of every climax. In others, perps ''never'' seem to get their ''Miranda'' rights read to them when they are arrested. The latter case is actually [[RealityIsUnrealistic more realistic]], since the police only read a ''Miranda'' warning to detainees they want to interrogate. When we ''do'' see the perps Mirandized, however, the officer almost invariably recites the text from memory. In reality, officers are required to read the rights from a card, to avoid mistakes that could get the case thrown out (''any'' deviation from the actual rights as printed mean the perp was not properly read their rights), and will get the perps to sign the card, in case he later denies having been read his rights. Also, they will not stop when a jaded criminal mastermind mutters, "Yeah yeah, I know my rights..." (They ''can't'', because the law requires that an officer inform a suspect of their rights, whether they claim to know them or not). Likewise, the officer is not allowed to interrupt the reading of rights to suggest an obnoxious suspect ''really should'' take advantage of his right to remain silent.

silent. Or to modify the "if you cannot afford an attorney" with sarcastic references to a wealthy suspect's obvious ability to afford one.

* Miranda rights are often read by [[Creator/MichaelConnelly Harry Bosch and other detectives in the Connelly universe]]. On several occasions, the detectives [[DiscussedTrope talk about]] when it will be required to Mirandize someone during a voluntary interview. One incident that is discussed in ''A Darkness More Than Night'' happened prior to the events of ''The Last Coyote'', when Harry had convinced a suspect in a murder case to come to the police station for a voluntary interview [[note]]the suspect at that point had claimed self-defense and thought he was being interviewed as a victim and witness[[/note]]. Before Harry could begin the interview, however, his [[ObstructiveBureaucrat lieutenant]] went and read the suspect his Miranda rights, tipping him off that they were investigating the incident as a murder rather than self-defense. When Harry started the interview and the suspect asked for a lawyer (essentially ending the interview before it could begin), Harry confronted the lieutenant and [[DisproportionateRetribution shoved him through his office window]].
