* Recurring Disney villain WesternAnimation/{{Pete}} had one at the time of ''WesternAnimation/AliceComedies'' (where he played the role of a pirate once), but it was later removed from his design. (Apparently the animators were having a hard time keeping the peg leg consistent.) He still gets one when typecast in a pirate role in more recent works, however.

* in ''Literature/{{Aubrey-Maturin}}'' there is a minor character who loses a leg and reappears as the captain of an East Indiaman, having few prospects in the Royal Navy as a result. Another minor character is an elderly officer in a similar position, but still in the Navy; Aubrey appoints him captain of a prize vessel, effectively pensioning him off (because the Navy Board will, by convention, confirm the promotion but not employ the officer again, thereby placing him on half-pay indefinitely).

* In the ''TabeltopGame/DiscworldRoleplayingGame'', the main illustration for the Brown Islands setting (which is about one-third [[NotSoSafeHarbor pirate settlement]] to two-thirds pirate-themed tourist trap) shows an [[JapaneseTourist Agatean tourist]] taking an iconograph of a pirate captain with a peg-leg. From the angle the reader is seeing the scene, the rest of his leg, tucked behind the peg, is clearly visible.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Rimworld}}'', if a colonist has to have a leg amputated (from being infected or simply mangled after a battle), in lieu of more advanced prosthetics you can simply fashion a peg leg from a single piece of wood and attach it on. It's better than nothing.
