* In ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas GTA San Andreas]]'' you can play a VideoGame/SpaceInvaders-like [[ShootEmUp shooter game]] on the VG console of Sweet's house and arcade cabinets scattered around the world. The game's name? '''They Crawled From Uranus!'''
* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' you can visit Uranus. If you launch a probe at it, EDI says, "''[[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything Really]]''[[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything , Commander?]]" If you do it again, she says, resigned, "[[AnalProbing Probing Uranus]]." None of your missions in the game take you to the Sol System, though, and Uranus is very poor in resources. If you probe Uranus, it is thus unlikely to be for practical reasons, and typically requires going out of your way to do so.[[note]]But we're not here to discuss your masturbatory habits, we're here to list examples for this trope.[[/note]]

* ''VideoGame/YouDontKnowJack 2011'' asks this question at the beginning of episode 1: "How many Earths could you stuff into the volume of Uranus before it just couldn't take any more?" Sounds innocent enough? The theme of the question, given before asking it, is ''[[IncrediblyLamePun Asstronomy]]'', one of the comments for a wrong answer is "''Are you kidding? You try that many and Uranus will never be the same again!''" But the worst offender is the punchline...

* ''VideoGame/MegaManV'' for the GameBoy features the Stardroid Uranus, which is a bull, of all things. Unintentionally related, the weapon you get from him is the [[AnalProbing Deep Digger]]. Possibly unintentional, since being a Japanese game, the developers perhaps didn't catch the innuendo.

In the episode directly after Sailor Mercury awakens, Queen Beryl notes to Jadeite that there are nine planets, leaving eight potential more team members.[[note]]It should be noted that there is no SailorEarth, since Tuxedo Mask fills the role, but it's justified since Queen Beryl wouldn't know that.[[/note]] She proceeds to rhetorically ask "Who's next?

* Music/{{Vengaboys}} and Music/PerezHilton have a song called "Rocket to Uranus", with [[SarcasmMode very subtle lyrics]] like "Let's have a party on Uranus" and "If you haven't got a thing to wear, it doesn't really matter up there". The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWYXIuuI-Rg music video]] is... well, very appropriate for the lyrics. To rub it in further, the rocket ship is [[FreudWasRight shaped like a cock and balls]].
