* ''Fanfic/FalloutEquestriaOccupationalHazards'': Being based on the NORAD Chyenne Mountain Complex, the EQUAD facility has one of its own, complete with a [[[TheBigBoard Big Board]]. As one of the authors has an obvious fascination with Dr. Strangelove, this should come as no surprise.

** The sequel ''Fanfic/FalloutEquestriaEmptyQuiver'' features even more, as while the EQUAD War Room is mentioned in an early chapter, it's later revealed that there's also a smaller War Room at the Vanhoover Air Base, as well as at Fort Maple. In both of the latter cases, people have to be reminded they can't fight in there.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'': Parodied in an episode where the Warners get pulled to Camelot to deal with a dragon that's causing havoc across the kingdom. Yakko calls his siblings to the War Room, then asks King Arthur where the War Room is. When Arthur says they don't have one, Wakko [[{{Hammerspace}} pulls one out of his bag]]. Inside is a setup that would make any general or MadScientist envious, with monitors on every wall showing the rampaging dragon and at the bottom a group of military leaders and scientists around a table debating whether to destroy the dragon or capture it for study. The Warners decide to forget the War Room after that and deal with the dragon themselves.
