* Used in ''WesternAnimation/WallE'', when the Captain becomes the first human in centuries to [[spoiler:[[Awesome/{{Pixar}} stand up]]]]. They originally put the score in as a joke, but test audiences cheered, so they [[ThrowItIn left it in]].

Consequently, usage of the composition as a StandardSnippet seem to have been eclipsed by its usage as an {{Homage}} or AffectionateParody of ''2001''. It's also far more likely to [[MundaneMadeAwesome emphasize something painfully mundane]] than to be used straight. (Arguably, the ''only'' place it's been used straight since ''2001'' was in ''Film/TwoThousandTenTheYearWeMakeContact.'')

* Used early on in ''WesternAnimation/{{Planet 51}}'' when Charles Baker touches down from his spacecraft. He even ''[[MediumAwareness hums]]'' it. And then [[RecordNeedleScratch he steps on a rubber ducky...]]

* Appears in ''Series/StargateUniverse''. Volker tells Brody that it's his favorite piece of music. It is later played as Volker prepares to undergo a kidney transplant - [[LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn Brody played it to comfort him]]. May be the first case of this music being used for a [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Crowning Moment Of]] ''[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Heartwarming]]''.
* The jingle accompanying Viacom's "V of Doom" VanityPlate somewhat resembles it, and the logo itself echoes TheMonolith.

* Creator/RichardDawkins once put together the Blind Watchmaker program as a sort of Cliff Notes evolution synthesizer. According to the book ''The Blind Watchmaker'', when he began producing little monochrome 2D insects instead of the trees that were all he'd been expecting, he immediately thought of this music.

* An iconic version of the song by Deodato was used in an ad for the Hummer H3 SUV. The fanfare comes [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotAwesome when the vehicle executes a successful parallel-parking maneuver.]]

''Also Sprach Zarathustra'' (''Thus Spake Zarathustra'') is a tone poem composed by Richard Strauss in 1896 (named after the book by Creator/FriedrichNietzsche). The melody of the "Sunrise" movement is undeniably ''[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome epic]]'', so it's a perfect way to tell the audience, "This is where you're supposed to be impressed."
