* The War Boys of ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' hail their leader Immortan Joe by raising their arms over their heads, fingers outstretched and interlaced to mimic the cylinders of a V8 engine. It's less a salute than it is a [[CargoCult quasi-religious]] symbol of glory, victory and devotion.

* Two of the Grand Companies in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' have a unique salute: members of the Immortal Flames put their left fist over their heart, while members of the Order of the Twin Adder put one arm over the other in front of them and bow their head. The Maelstrom averts this trope in favor of a traditional MilitarySalute. [[TheEmpire The Garlean Empire]] have their own "hand over heart" salute (Similar to the AttackOnTitan example above), and the new Crystal Braves have their own unique salute, with your right arm bent 90 degrees pointing upward.

* In Manga/OnePiece, the Marines have their own unique salute. It resembles a standard military salute, except instead of the palm slightly facing downwards, it is instead facing against the saluter's forehead, with the back of the hand facing forward.

** There's also a single handed variant mentioned in the Literature/CiaphasCain series, known as "thumbing the palm": fingers slightly splayed, with the tip of the thumb resting just between the start of the index and middle fingers

Added DiffLines:

** Some of the Sentai/Ranger teams also tend to give thumbs up or down in some fashion (SPD/Dekaranger included); the Magiranger/Mystic Force used finger snaps, and the Galaxy Rangers/Gingaman used a gun-esque, two finger hand gesture (also used by SPD/Dekaranger). The [=GoGoV=]/Lightspeed teams used a standard military/rescue salute, though; the Ohranger/Zeo teams used a variant on that (up in the air).

* ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' has the traditional greeting/gesture of submission utilized when entering Amazon territory consisting of raising one's arms and crossing one's wrists above one's head, wrists inward. This is, presumably to attest to one's lack of access to weapons. [[Franchise/WonderWoman William Moulton Marston]] might just have [[FreudWasRight something else to say]] about that, however. Additionally being as most characters we see performing the gesture are female--and considering the orientation of many Amazon warriors... * display* might not have been excluded entirely from the equation, either, shall we say...

** ''Series/ChojinSentaiJetman'', had Ryu/Red Hawk, the only military officer of the Jetmen (the others were all civilians who got their powers accidentally [[ItMakesSenseInContext thanks to an exploding space station]]) would often do a straight, two-fingered salute of sorts whenever activating big attacks with the mecha, most often the Jet Phoenix and the Tetra Buster.
