* In ''PerdidoStreetStation'' by ChinaMieville, New Crobuzon has a style of arrest requiring the presence of witnesses, usually dragooned by the militia into assisting in an arrest rather than acting under their own volition. Interestingly, this style of arrest was detailed in a RealLife situation in RobertLittle's ''TheOctoberCircle'' as being in use in communist Bulgaria, complete with press-ganged witnesses.

* The protagonist of ''BaldursGate 2'' has the option to ask an ObstructiveBureaucrat of Athkatla if "[[MirandaRights I have the right to remain silent]]". As if this wasn't anachronistic enough, the protagonist isn't even the accused, but simply a witness to a crime.

* 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[[note]]three Bajoran days, which are canonically 26 hours long[[/note]] without charge. Do you understand these rights as I have explained them?”

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Pasila}}'', a man in drag being escorted to jail from his bachelor party alternatively complains how "you didn't read me my rights!" and "What kind of a country is this when people are read their rights!" to [[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist Pöysti]], despite Pöysti repeatedly stating that there is nothing resembling Miranda rights in Finland. After getting tired of his complaining, he finally obliges and comes up with the following: "Okay. You're under arrest. You have the right to remain silent, or talk in a quiet voice. Everything you say may be used against you. Some of it will come against you on its own, while the rest will be purposefully used against you via judicial trickery. You know, being presented with a heavy bias in a really annoying manner! God bless."

In many countries, a suspected criminal being arrested must legally be read their rights as a suspect. The exact procedure, wording and overall intention varies between countries. For country-specific forms of this, see YouDoNotHaveToSayAnything for the UK version and MirandaRights for the US style.

Please only include examples on this page if they are either fictional or lacking a specific page.

* Si-ohn does this when she arrests crime kingpin Hong Joo in Episode 15 of KoreanDrama ''Series/WhoAreYou''. If the translation is accurate, the standard Korean warning is very close in verbiage to the American MirandaRights.

* The ''Psycho Cop'' duology:
** Partially employed in the [[Film/PsychoCop first film]] as a one-liner when Officer Vickers is killing Zack, and he proclaims that "You have the right to remain... silent!"
** In ''Film/PsychoCopReturns'', Officer Vickers shoots a character, and starts reciting the MirandaRights to his corpse, putting his own spin on it.
-->'''Vickers:''' You have the right to remain dead. Anything you say can and will be considered very strange because you're dead. You have the right to an attorney, but it won't do you any good because you're dead. Do you understand these rights that have just been read to you? Are you even listening? It would be a lot easier if you were a little more co-operative!
