* ''Webcomic/{{Mulberry}}'' has its title character discuss the Bechdel Test with Creator/MelissaMcCarthy, in a comic exclusive to the periodical ''BANG! The Entertainment Paper''.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "Mummy on the Orient Express" lampshades it when Clara tries to comfort a woman about her boyfriend for much of the episode, before complaining that she's on her own with another woman, so why can't they talk about something other than men? The fact that their resulting conversation is about the Doctor is a fumble in light of this, though.

She becomes exasperated when the subject keeps getting back to the men in Rebecca's life, finally saying, "God, do you know how hard it is to pass a Bechdel Test when you're a Dream Ghost?"

* ''ComicBook/DruidCity'': One character, who is a strident feminist, was added to the story so that the first volume of the series would pass the test. The same character, Carla Cortez, has gone on to be an ''AuthorAvatar'' in sociopolitical discussions that take place in the series.
