* ''Franchise/RockRaiders'' players could sound "Action Stations" if a monster or slimy slug showed up, which caused any armed Rock Raiders to start attacking the critters in question. It also sounded automatically if a building was damaged.

** They avoided Red Alert, despite many of its characters being GenreSavvy, primarily because it's set in the modern era or TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture; the human starships use General Quarters.

* In the Age Of Sail, drums were commonly used to sound the alarm, since they could be heard throughout the ship. This was not only done when they had spotted an enemy, but would also sometimes be done as a matter of routine at daybreak, as this was the time [[GenreSavvy they were most likely to be sighted by an enemy,]] meaning it was best to be prepared for a fight.

* While they don't say "red alert," the [[Franchise/StarWars Imperial Navy]] does have an alarm which qualifies. It's used when the Rebels attack the Death Star in ''Film/ANewHope'', albeit at a higher pitch than subsequent uses, when the ''Avenger'' collides with and scrapes along another Star Destroyer in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' and then in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' when Vader's shuttle is approaching and the Empire is evacuating the Death Star II.

Added DiffLines:

* The climax of ''Film/MisterRoberts'' has the captain throwing the siren on screaming "SOUND THE GENERAL ALARM!" while his hapless crew (all SoldiersAtTheRear) rush around groggily trying to remember where they were last time they had to man the battle stations a year ago. Why? Because someone threw the captain's palm tree overboard.


Added DiffLines:

* The first ''Literature/HoratioHornblower'' novel had its title changed to ''Beat to Quarters'' in the States to emphasize [[AmericanKirbyIsHardcore the exciting naval action]] as opposed to happy returns.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/HoratioHornblower'' has officers bellowing "beat to quarters!" several times an episode, being about WoodenShipsAndIronMen in the days of Napoleon. In "Mutiny" the sailors have significant trouble manning their stations properly since Captain Sawyer has just given them all double rum.

* Practically every episode of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' would have the alarm in the Command Center going off (represented as a spinning light within a rhombus-shaped shell) whenever there was trouble afoot. ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'' replaced it with a spinning pink and orange light, and ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo'' replaced ''that' with a six-segment trapezoidal light-up sign, both of which made the original alarm's noise. ''Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue'' had the typical blares used inside the Aquabase, ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' also had similar blares inside the Delta Base and so did ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'' in the garage. (Other series may not have blares at all, or alternate means of notification- ie. [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Princess Shayla's]] bubbling fountain.)

**Especially in the suburbs and rural areas of the northeastern US and in rural Germany, but also in other places around the world that rely on volunteer firefighters, these sirens will often be instead used to alert volunteer firefighters, almost always alongside pagers. However, many communities have begun to remove their fire sirens due to noise complaints and rising call volumes.
