* ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'', which began principal photography a few months after 9/11, uses the slogan "united we roar". It's a fairly likely reference to the slogan "united we stand", which became a popular symbol of solidarity after the attacks.

* ''Film/CollateralDamage'' is about a Los Angeles firefighter who travels to Colombia to seek revenge on a terrorist who killed his family in a bombing. This movie was actually affected by the 9/11 attacks.

* ''Film/WhiteHouseDown'' is another DieHardOnAnX movie set in the White House about another Secret Service agent fighting against WesternTerrorists, though it's a more [[LighterAndSofter lighthearted]] work compared to others on this list.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' episode "A Date with the Health Inspector" made one hell of an allusion to the Iraq War in the form of a convenience store robbery. Ed Wuncler III and Gin Rummy ({{White Gang Banger|s}} [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed takes on George W. Bush and Donald Rumsfeld]]) take some beer called "Black Gold", and when the [[AsianStoreOwner Arab store clerk]] (UsefulNotes/SaddamHussein) tries to charge them, they accuse him of having a gun (WeaponsOfMassDestruction). A cop named Frank ({{France}}) shows up, and Ed III levels a gun to him, shouting "[[WithUsOrAgainstUs Whose side you on?!]]" The clerk's coworkers fight back, leading to a two-hour shootout with more allusions to the events around the War than can be listed here. It ends with the Arab store owners arrested and [[KarmaHoudini Ed III and Rummy hailed as heroes]].

* The ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series, while debuting a few months after 9/11, has ScaryDogmaticAliens who are religious extremists going to war with the UNSC (humanity's united military, modeled after the United States Marines). It was subtle in the first game, but was more obvious in ''Halo 2'', where the War was on the developers' minds more. The aliens' religious motivation ceases to be an InformedAttribute. The allegory, if it was intentional, [[{{Metaphorgotten}} sort of falls apart]] when [[OurZombiesAreDifferent the Flood shows up.]]
