* When Creator/ElizaDushku is hit on and asked out on a date when she plays an FBI agent in ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', she asks if her Navy SEAL husband is also invited. Dushku is known for playing Faith in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', Echo in ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}'', and Rubi in ''{{Wet}}'', in other words badasses. So she’s matched up with the ultimate badass for one hell of a cockblock.

This is [[AlternateContinuity in contrast to]] the ''Splinter Cell'' novels, where he was a former CIA agent instead. In ''Blacklist'' SEAL Team Six is mentioned to have been killed off in the Middle East [[TheWorfEffect to highlight how much of a threat the Engineers are]]. Late in the game, Fisher assists another SEAL team in Louisiana in fighting off an Engineer attack at an oil refinery.

Forerunners:



* UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar: At the behest of [[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy]] Navy divers and swimmers were formed into the elite team they are known as today, with the creation of [=SEAL=] Team One and [=SEAL=] Team Two. Utilizing the lessons learned from the success of World War Two and Korea prospects were put through TrainingFromHell to become not just maritime commandos, but land based scouts and raiders, infiltrators, saboteurs and assassins. The two platoons would be sent to Vietnam but there was a problem: [=SEALS=] had a good grasp of what they could do and what their mission capabilities were, where the regular chain of command thought they knew their tactics and how best to deploy, leading to a degree of JurisdictionFriction. Many used the war as a testing bed to develop new ideas and test out exactly how far, how dark, and how tough they could push themselves, whether it be relying on their skills and instincts to survive or throw out the rules that didn't make sense in favor of better ones. One in particular would be then Lieutenant Richard Marcinko, the Literature/RogueWarrior, who would go on to command Team Two and whip them into shape and the lessons learned would lead to the formation of a new counterterrorist team.

* UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar: Lieutenant William Barker Cushing of the Union Navy executes a daring raid behind Confederate lines, that will eventually have all the hallmarks of a Navy Special Warfare operation. He stealthily inserted a team of sailors via a rowboat up the Roanoake River into Hampton Roads Harbor, Virginia to destroy or capture the Confederate ironclad CSS Albermarl. He succeeded in sinking the ship with planted explosive charges, but unfortunately his naval career was cut short by mental illness.



* Creator/CharlieSheen's movie ''Navy SEALS'' has a reporter who has contacts among terrorists but refuses to divulge information to Michael Biehn's character about terrorist possessing surface-to-air missiles. He takes her into a kill house (where the teams practice fighting inside buildings) and has a team actually engage around them, to give the reporter an idea of how it feels being helpless around a bunch of armed attackers, to get her to divulge the information needed to rescue the captured US personnel.

* Admiral Chegwidden in ''Series/{{JAG}}'' was a SEAL before he transferred to surface warfare (rising to command a destroyer) and then going to law school to join the JAG Corps and becoming JAG himself. This was initially depicted as being career calculation as Chegwidden was introduced with aspiration towards becoming Chief of Naval Operations. On the odd occasion he is involved in a incident he shows he can still be BadAss into his sixties.
