* There is a running gag among the developers of "VideoGame/{{NoMansSky}}", in which one of the development team members will add "SPACE WHALES", to Hello Games' schedule. Though, Sean Murray has hinted that Space Whales will likely not make their way into the game itself.

** The episode "Kill The Moon" at first features what appear to be dog-sized space spiders...but they turn out to be [[spoiler: nothing more than ''bacteria'' compared to the gigantic dragon-like creature that's about to hatch out of the moon, which is actually its egg. It's implied that it belongs to a whole species of Space Whales that lay moon-sized eggs right when they hatch; their eggs remain in orbit around their host planets, providing them with all the advantages of a massive moon, meaning they are symbiotic with their planets. Good thing the protagonists decided NOT to nuke the moon in the end...]]

* The WebOriginal/SCPFoundation has [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2146 SCP-2146]], the frozen corpse of Bowhead Whale in Earth orbit. It regularly broadcasts short television programs featuring Space Whales in rather disturbing contexts, often ending unpleasantly for involved human beings.

* Chitauri ships in Film/TheAvengers are weaponized cyborg Space Whales.
* During the pre-release online hype for ''Cloverfield'', numerous EpilepticTrees abounded about what the monster would look like and where it had come from. [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_YPCf8JFgUdI/RvIDkNog-4I/AAAAAAAAA8E/oqozZVNkPtQ/s800/slushoRar-T.jpg One]] sketch of a multi-fluked whale with legs, which would've stood several times ''taller'' than the actual creature from the film, was widely circulated as "the ''real'' Cloverfield monster"; this spawned its own flood of debate over whether it was an unknown sea creature, a ''mutated'' sea creature, or a Space Whale.

* In TheNineties a popular art-style for folders and binders was a dolphin or whale swimming through symmetrically-arranged coral and star clusters and sparkly purple nebulae? They were marginally darker and less [[TastesLikeDiabetes diabetes-flavored]] than the Lisa Frank rainbow-and-unicorn kind.

* ''VideoGame/{{Off}} has a flying whale enemy in Zone 2. It's appropriately enough called "whale".
