* In ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'', the license plate on Mr. Frye's Ferrari says "NRVOUS", which perfectly describes Cameron throughout the movie.

Added DiffLines:

* In one ''Franchise/ArchieComics'' strip, Reggie gets a new license plate for his car that says NUMBAH1. Archie becomes interested in buying one for his own car but doesn't think that any of Reggie's suggestions (CLOD, PIPSQK, YO-YO) or Veronica's (REDHED, R-CHEE) are right for him. The punchline comes when Archie learns that his car is being towed away and dashes outside in a panic, causing Jughead to comment that his plate should be FFFAAST instead.

** Vehicle Cargo missions in ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV Grand Theft Auto: Online]]'' are all about stealing [[RiceBurner gaudily modified]] sports cars, all of which have licence plates like [=PR3C10US=], [=2F4ST4U=], [=B1GM0N3Y=], [[MidlifeCrisisCar M1DL1F3]] and [=W1NN1NG=], [[http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Vehicle_Cargo#Target_Vehicles among many other "tasteful" examples]].

* ''VideoGame/WatchDogs'': [[TheCracker JB "Defalt" Markowicz]] and [[TheDon Dermot "Lucky" Quinn]] use "[=D3F=] 4L7" and "LUC KYQ" as their plate numbers, respectively. Quinn's case is especially amusing, as he's a octogenarian mob boss and his car is a 40-year old vintage luxury saloon.
** Aiden himself occasionally drives a silver car with the license plate "[=N3X=] U5 ", a reference to the game's working title "Nexus".

* In ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', the HorsemenOfTheApocalypse all upgraded from steeds to cars, and we saw two had vanity plates. Pestilence's was SIKN TIRD ("Sick and Tired"), and Death's was BUH*BYE. War and Famine would presumably have similar plates, but we never saw them.

** N.J.'s most famous form of non-vanity plate special plates are the "courtesy" plates. Courtesy plates have to be personally approved by the applicant's state senator, so the plates are generally issued to senators' friends and allies. The plates are thus in themselves are a low-key boast that you're in with some powerful people. You can tell courtesy plates because the numbers always take the form ABC 12, where "ABC" starts with a particular letter assigned to the county (for instance, "A" is assigned to Atlantic County, while "K" stands for Middlesex);[[note]]Each county can be assigned one code, as New Jersey has only 21 counties) that said, there's a little room for customization, as the driver is allowed to request that his/her initials be used as the second two letters of the letter code.
