* Terry Nation had a habit of using "space" attributively in his science fiction stories. Noticeable in his work on ''Series/DoctorWho'' (especially the stories he wrote for the ''Doctor Who'' and ''Dalek'' annuals).

* The ''Series/NewsRadio'' episode set in space used this to good comic effect. When Dave and Lisa were arguing over whose "space pod" to stay at, Lisa complains that Dave's is cold and drafty. Dave says, "Fine, I'll get a space heater!" And who could forget that they're not reporting on the news... they're reporting on the ''space'' news.

** The Third Doctor had Venusian Aikido, and once sung a Venusian lullaby (consisting of made up words sung to ''God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen''). Given that the Venera 7 probe had already confirmed that Venus wasn't capable of supporting any form of humanoid life, it's obvious the writers just stuck the word 'Venus' in there with no more thought than usual for this trope.

* In one episode of "VivaPinata" Professor Pester uses an overly complicated scheme to catch a pinata by tricking Pinata Central into launching Hudson Horstachio into what they think is the first party in space. When Hudson questions the logic and difficulty of this plan as opposed to just catching him on earth, Pester justifies it by [[DiscussedTrope explaining that everything is cooler when you add space to it.]] He then goes on to demonstrate that a Chair is not as cool as a SPACE-CHAIR! Ice cream is bested by SPACE-ICE CREAM! And his evil plot becomes an evil SPACE PLOT! Hudson concedes the point after he realizes that he is now SPACE HUDSON!

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' has many examples of "Wizard X" and "Wizarding X": wizard chess, wizard crackers (as in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas_cracker Christmas crackers]]), [[FunWithAcronyms Ordinary Wizarding Levels]], etc. The collective term for magical society is the "Wizarding World". (One particularly weird example is the name of Fred and George Weasley's shop, "Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes." It does ''sound'' slightly better than just "Weasleys' Wheezes," but the "Wizard" is completely unnecessary for both characters and readers, because it's in a center of the Wizarding World and not even accessible to Muggles.)

** When the RAF was formed, one suggestion was to take naval ranks and prefix them with "Air". So someone now called a Wing Commander would have been an Air Commander (not to be confused with Air Commodore, which is a thing). With that precedent, Travis would probably have been answerable to a Space Group Captain.

* Various stages in the VideoGame/RhythmHeaven series are random things set in space, usually with "Space" or "Cosmic" added to it. Examples include Space Dance, Cosmic Dance, Cosmic Rhythm Rally, Space Soccer (and Space Soccer 2), and Spaceball. Note that them being set in space bears zero gameplay relevance in any of them--they could've all been set on the ground and would make just as much sense. There is also a downplayed example with Air Rally in ''Rhythm Heaven Fever'', a badminton match set in the sky where the players ride on separate planes. In this case, there ''is'' a gameplay element to the setting, as the distance between the players changes drastically, and you can't retrieve a birdie you've missed.
