* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'', the American government is shown to have one of these, almost identical to the one in ''DrStrangelove''. The only difference is that it uses peace signs to represent failed strikes.

Note that RealityIsUnrealistic and most examples of this look far more dramatic in media than in RealLife. Compare OminousMultipleScreens, which is the villainous version and RoomFullOfCrazy, when this goes...overboard. See also StringTheory, which this often overlaps with.

* ''You're Stepping on My Cloak and Dagger'' by Roger Hall. Hall attends a briefing where there's a magnificent map of German-occupied France covering a wall. Unfortunately it's protected by a sheet of celluloid, and a colonel sends the whole lot up in smoke when he uses his lit cigar as a map pointer.

** ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' also introduced the large systems monitor display in Main Engineering, which ostensibly showed the current status of the ship's systems. (Usually it was just the default fixed, backlit cutaway image of the ''Enterprise''-D, with the occasional overlaid or backlit effect; on rare occasions, it would be used to display other images as though it were a regular viewscreen.) There was also its companion piece, the "[[FanNickname pool table]]", which had a large surface display on each end, and with which the crew interacted much more. The wall monitor would appear on other starships in the franchise, usually at the rear of the bridge, opposite the viewscreen.

* Unsurprisingly one's used on the aircraft carrier Donald's stationed on in ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''. It evidently sees the most use letting the admiral act out fantasies of blowing up enemy ships.
