* The Navajo Code-Talkers used a form of spy-speak, since the Navajo language doesn't have specific words for most military items and personnel. Thus, a tank was a "tortoise," a tank destroyer was a "tortoise killer," aircraft were denoted by various types of birds, etc. One Najavo soldier (who was not a Code-Talker) was captured by the Japanese and asked to translate the code. He could recognize it as the Navajo language, but the messages made no sense to him.

* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/895268/chapters/1741535 Two-faced Riddle]]'' Coulson phones Natasha to report on an assignment.
-->"Honey, I think I'm going to be late for dinner tonight."\\
\\
Natasha immediately recognized Coulson's voice and the hidden message. He had encountered something he couldn't handle by himself. She snapped into the role of a doting wife and laughed.\\
\\
"Oh sweety, that's ok. I'm embarrassed actually; I hadn't even started yet. What do you think about chicken tonight?" Chicken was the lowest level of response.\\
\\
"If it's not too much trouble, I'd really like that Zharennyi Porosenok dish we had when we visited your folks." Natasha raised an eyebrow as she heard his request. It was the name of a traditional Russian dish but to her, it was code for someone non-hostile with a particular set of supernatural abilities. Visiting her folks meant that he was coming this way with their guest possibly following along.
