* ''TopTen'' has Smax trying to do this to [[spoiler: Commissioner Ultima]] while getting the crap pounded out of him. At one point, [[spoiler: Ultima]] brings a heavy load on his head, and he just says, "Okay, let's try this again. You have the right to remain silent..."

* In ''FanFic/APeccatis'', Aurors are saddled with a wonderfully [[WallOfText verbose]] version of the [[YouDoNotHAveToSayAnything British police caution]] in order to plug in the extra legal loopholes that being magical might present. Legal buffs might care to notice that in the Wizarding version, the right to remain silent (which is front and center in the Caution and Miranda) is the ''second-to-last'' thing mentioned. Also please note that unlike the caution, this one is to be recited upon arrest (or when the suspect wakes up from all the stunning spells), not interrogation. It reads as follows:

* In ''Anime/TenchiUniverse'', Mihoshi attempts to read Ryoko her rights when the space pirate destroys the device Mihoshi is using to read them. Since Mihoshi is TheDitz and can't remember the entire thing, Ryoko pretty much gets off scott-free until Kiyone comes along a few episodes later.

* 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."
