** The High Commander's salute winds up being a plot point in "Frankie Goes to Rutherford," in which a student of Mary's tells Dick about [[GayBar "places for... people like us"]] and accompanies Dick to one such establishment. Dick mistakes the [[Creator/{{Madonna}} "Vogue"]] dance for the High Commander's salute and enthusiastically joins in, leading to a rather heated exchange with Mary, who assumes he's been [[MistakenForGay secretly gay and leading her on all along.]]

* In the StarTrekNovelVerse, the Kinshaya flare their wings as their version of a salute - this also serves to display the wing colours that signify family lineage, reinforcing the hierarchy in more ways than one.

** Partially subverted with the Daleks themselves, whose simplistic arm assemblies (a front-facing, telescoping rod with only a single ball-and-socket joint at the shoulder) leave the possibilities for salutes somewhat limited. In their earliest appearances, they raised and extended their arms in an [[ThoseWackyNazis ominously familiar way]], though this salute was abandoned almost immediately after ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E2TheDalekInvasionOfEarth The Dalek Invasion of Earth]]''. Whether this decision was made because the network thought it was TooSoon or just because it was slathering on the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Space]] [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Nazi]] subtext a little too thick is anyone's guess). Played straight in later appearances, where the Daleks salute by raising and/or "nodding" their eyetstalks.

** Wolf Cubs (the forerunners of today's Cub Scouts) had a salute that resembled a V-for-Victory sign held to the temple. There was even an occasional two-handed version. It was supposed to represent a wolf's ears.

* The [[WolfMan Canim]] from the ''Literature/CodexAlera'' salute by tilting their head to the side and baring their throat; they don't react well to human forms of showing respect such as bowing, because a Cane who bows is about to ''charge'' and they interpret the gesture as a threat.

** In the episode ''Inferno'', the fascist army of an alternate-history UK had a salute sort of like the Vulcan one, but without the split fingers.
