* In the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' novel ''[[HandOfThrawn Specter of the Past]]'', we are treated to two separate chapters starting with the battle alarm going off at an unfair moment for [[BadassNormal Wedge Antilles]]: the first time in the middle of dessert, the second in the middle of the night.

** The tradition dates back to WorldWarII, during which the radio broadcast "Condition Red" was used to warn anyone with a radio that the sender had detected an imminent enemy attack, usually but not always by enemy aircraft. "Very Red" was also used a couple of times in the Pacific to describe very large attacks.

** Sure enough in "World Enough And Time", Missy hears a red alert klaxon and starts dancing to it. Mind you, that's likely because she's rather addicted to chaos.
