* UsefulNotes/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.
* In [[Literature/RoTeO Resurrected Angels: Rebirth]] the first three notes become the key to summoning a FlamingSword or RoyalRapier depending on the scenario. Since this is ArchangelGabriel who's summoning the sword, this is the musical equivalent to a PreAssKickingOneLiner.

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 its sequel, ''Film/TwoThousandTenTheYearWeMakeContact.'')

* The old [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lifespring Lifespring]] Basic Training Program, back when they still gave it, used this music to convene every session.
* This was played for the unveiling of the [[CoolPlane B-2]]. It was a sunny day and because of that nobody could see into the shadowed hanger that the plane was in, and as the song started the B-2 slowly rolled out into the light.
* Russians will mainly know it from the trivia show ''What? Where? When?''.

''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 ''epic'', so it's a perfect way to tell the audience, "This is where you're supposed to be impressed."

* 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.

* 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.
