* ''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".

** 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.]]
