* 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.

* In ''The Last Castle'', Robert Redford's character, a three-star general is put into a military prison. When the other inmates begin to respect him, they aren't permitted to salute, so they raise the right hand to the right temple-- and then run the fingers through the hair.

* In ''Morons from Outer Space'', Griff Rhys Jones guiltily claps a hand over the breast pocket of his stolen uniform to hide the name tag (in case someone realizes it's not his) this is mistaken for a salute by visiting politicians who return it, then use it to a colonel, who returns it also.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Mixels}}'', the Nixels (at least the minions) are given a salute that starts as a standard hand-on-forehead one, but then is blowing a kiss, and waving off. So far, it has only been shown in "A Quest for the Lost Mixamajig".
