* When you view the credits in ''EA Sports''' ''NHL 2001'', a remixed version of the song is played in the background- perhaps in reference to the year in the game's title.

* ''VideoGame/{{Forza}} Horizon 3'' has ''Also Sprach Zarathustra'' in its soundtrack as part of its classical music station Timeless FM. It also plays during a Bucket List challenge where players drive a [[CoolCar Koenigsegg One:1]] down an airport runway at sunrise to hit a top speed past a speed trap.



* Parodied in ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'': Hannelore [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=707 mentions]] one of the big drawbacks of living in a space station is having to listen to Also Sprach Zarathustra every time the sun rises.

* ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' had a scene with Zaphod dramatically speaking while AlsoSprachZarathustra grew in volume under him, until Zaphod tells Marvin to cut it out, whereupon the final two notes barely make it out.

* Used in ''[[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Ghostbusters II]]'', when they turn on the proton packs for the first time in years. Lampshaded by having the characters sing it themselves.

* 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.

* The jingle accompanying Viacom's "V of Doom" VanityPlate somewhat resembles it, and the logo itself echoes TheMonolith.
