* In the ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'' episode where they find Clip, when they try to sneak into Myrtle's house, she does the radio click thing with Stitch as though they're talking on walkie talkies (they weren't actually using them, just pretending they were).

* Parodied in ''TheYoungOnes'' episode "Cash". The police recruiting sergeant (who bears a strange resemblance to Mussolini) tells Neil the only qualification he needs to join the force is the ability to imitate radio static when using his walkie-talkie.
* Spoofed when ''TheGoodies'' are launched into space. While communicating with Graham at MissionControl, they keep saying "Beep!" at the end of every transmission.

* In an episode of ''Bonkers'', the titular character refused to stop making this noise, even when he wasn't on the radio.
* In ''StaticShock'' Virgil and Richie use walkie-talkies they call shockvoxes constantly, from the moment Richie builds them. In the episode where Virgil's sister, Sharron, suspects he's Static, Richie obviously can't hear that Virgil has left and that Sharron is in the room because he's speaking into the shockvox. Sharron hearing Richie call Virgil Static sets off the rest of the episode.
* Parodied in ''SpongeBobSquarepants'' where [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick pretend to be astronauts talking through radio, eventually just start alternating static noise.

this, as well as the ship-to-ship communications of X-wings and other Rebel starfighters.

[[AC:{{Literature}}]]
* In the ''Literature/XWingSeries'', Wedge claims that three years or so after ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', the New Republic can afford better comms for the X-wings, but keep the white-noise-filled versions for tradition's sake, and to maintain a level of anonymity against Imperial eavesdroppers.

* ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'': In the expansion Enemy Within this is the sound made during the EXALT (a clandestine paramilitary group opposing XCOM) turn in covert operations. It comes in contrast with the other-worldy alien gibberish that plays during 'ALIEN ACTIVITY'.

* Most of the dialogue in ''CallOfDuty 4''
* [[VoiceWithAnInternetConnection Merc]] in ''MirrorsEdge''.
* The Replica in ''[[FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R.]]'', who all speak over radio wiith electronically filtered voices. ''Project Origin'' actually shows ''why'' they only speak with filtered voices, as being clones, their bodies are deformed and their "natural" voices sound like harsh, guttural, inhuman growling.
* Most of the dialogue in the ''AceCombat'' games, since it primarily takes place via radio communication between planes.
