* In ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'', the DLC story operation "Attikus and the Thrall Rebellion" is Attikus' account of the eponymous rebellion via holo sim with some creative liberties taken by him that frames it like a stereotypical FilmNoir detective story complete with various tropes commonly associated with the genre.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Dial N for Nerder", while not done in black and white, uses noir music cues and has scenes which mirror famous noir films, most notably the supermarket scene from DoubleIndemnity. The A and B plots reflect that, with the former concerning [[FilleFatale Lisa]] and Bart's attempts to cover up their involvement with the accidental death of a classmate, while Marge suspects Homer of cheating (on his diet). Homer even wears a fedora and trench coat, and the end credits are in the style of ''Series/{{Columbo}}''.

** ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' episode "Necessary Evil" had Constable Odo using the PrivateEyeMonologue to parody the CaptainsLog, and flashbacks to a murder he investigated while working for the Cardassian occupiers. Bonus points for dark shadows enveloping everything (even in the "present", as it takes place during the station's night shift), thunderstorms in the first scene (on Bajor), a wealthy and shifty widow who's a bit of TheVamp, and Quark being surprisingly hard-boiled himself (which amusingly fits with Armin Shimmerman's Bogart-like voice). Interestingly, [[spoiler: it isn't the widow but series regular Major Kira who]] turns out to be the FemmeFatale murder--leading to a ''quite'' noir-ish BlackAndGreyMorality ending.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' had one in season 4, with Hank fancying himself a noir detective. The picture switches to monochrome whenever he puts on his fedora. (it came with a [[IndianaJones whip]]! A [[FridgeBrilliance detective's whip]]!)

OutOfGenreExperience. If the noir elements occur in a dream sequence or other alternate reality, it's also a {{Costumer}}.
