* Averted and then played straight in the first and second seasons of ''SeaQuestDSV''. The original featured a rather low-key alarm klaxon and the 1MC call "General Quarters, all hands to battle stations," along with stock shots of watertight hatches sealing throughout the boat. The second season played the trope to the hilt, adding in lots of flashing red lights and making the siren painfully loud.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' plays with this trope and [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience Colour Coded For Your Inconvenience]] - First an intruder alert causes Code Red, which later escalates to Code Green, and after the prisoners escape to Code Purple. Hope wonders aloud what the heck it all means, and then it's completely lampshaded when Colonel Nabaat starts having her epic VillainousBreakdown, shouting "''That means we're Code Yellow. No, wait, Code Blue?. If it was Code Orange that would mean...?''" But then Primarch Dysley puts an end to it and remarks that "''Desperate times demand flexibility'': [{{beat}}] ''[[SnowMeansDeath Code]] [[KillEmAll White!]]"
