* In ''TabletopGame/{{Crimestrikers}}'', Esperanto shows up in a few places. The two major [[FishPeople Hydreran]] characters, Donacina ("little gift") and Rasavanto ("racial savior"), both have {{Portmanteau}} names derived from the language. It's also used for some location names, such as the nation Alta Montejo ("high mountain"), the space station Stelamiko ("star friend"), the casino Bona Fortuno ("good fortune"), and the two deserts, Senfina ("endless") and Ora Morto ("golden death").

* Esperanto is the second language of the unnamed city in the ''Film/{{Blade}}'' movies. ''Film/{{Incubus}}'' can be seen playing on a television at one point.



** The 1965 horror film ''Film/{{Incubus}}'' starred Creator/WilliamShatner and was produced by most of the first season ''Series/TheOuterLimits1963'' production team; it was filmed entirely in (poorly written and pronounced) Esperanto to sound more exotic.

* In ''WanderingHamster'', the bubble-mage James is a member of the Esperanto League of Flanat (ELF). Bob the Hamster completely misunderstands both the acronym and the conversations that James has with the local guildmaster (he assumes that the two are talking mean about him). It's hilarious for the player, not so much for Bob.
