* In the ''TransformersFilmSeries'', many of the paintjobs used by the Autobots in vehicle mode could arguably count, but the best example is Starscream's Cybertronian War Tattoos, a set of Cybertronian writing covering his entire body, [[spoiler: starting immediately after the [[BrokenMasquerade Decepticons drop the Masquerade]] in ''Revenge Of The Fallen''.]]

* Skydiving clubs tend to paint their jump aircraft on garish and striking schemes. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], since it is also a safety measure as it helps the plane to be seen from a distance.

'''Type E:''' Humorous cartoons. This type was especially popular in the USAAF and Finnish air forces, and would often depict a popular cartoon character, such as Donald Duck or Batman. This type of nose art is common even today. It usually depicts either the war itself or the enemy in ironic or satirical way, and is usually connected to the individual name of the plane. The extreme example of this was a B-24M Liberator [[http://www.b24bestweb.com/itaintsofunny3.htm "It Ain't So Funny,"]] whose [[UpToEleven entire nose]] was covered with cartoon characters.

* In ''VideoGame/Fallout4'', finding the right issue of ''Hot Rodder'' magazine in the post-apocalyptic Commonwealth will allow you to give your suits of PoweredArmor a shark mouth paintjob, which looks better on some models than others, but always grants a bonus to your Agility when worn. Alternate color schemes include [[HotPaintJob black flames on a red background]] or [[RealMenWearPink white scallops on pink]].

* Nose art and anything comparable has been banned by the USAF for fear that pilots may select something non-PC, thus offending Mother Gaia, or something.
