* The [=SeeD=] salute in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' consists of raising the right hand, palm turned inward, to partially cover the face. This becomes a minor plot point later in the game, when Selphie uses the wrong salute when disguised as a Galbadian soldier. Another point has Rinoa pretending to be a [=SeeD=], and is shown mimicking it with a slight delay, as she was never taught it.

[[spoiler:The salute was later revealed to be the result of a StableTimeLoop where one of the founders of the Balamb Garden saw one of the main character doing it.]]

->'''Helix:''' Is command presence also why people do the Sam Salute when they recognize you?
->'''Sam:''' Sam Salute. That's not the gesture with the finger, is it?
->'''Helix:''' No, I mean the one where people put their hand over their wallet.
->'''Sam:''' Oh, that one. I'm pretty sure that's a sign of respect.

* Also OlderThanSteam - in the Aubrey - Maturin novels and film, sailors salute officers using a gesture involving touching their forehead with one knuckle of a loosely clenched fist. This was a variation of an older, civilian gesture indicating that the sailor would have doffed their hat, if they had one ( although the wearing of a hat, or not, was disregarded for the purpose ). Note that officers saluted each other by various hat-doffing and hand-shaking formalities.

* 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.
