Captain Scarlet was the principal character of Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, a TV series created by Sylvia and Gerry Anderson and produced by Century 21 Productions.

  • The "About the Authors" section of Short Trips: Christmas Around the World refers to writer William Potter as "putting words into the mouths of", among others, Captain Scarlet. This is in reference to New Captain Scarlet, a magazine published by GE Fabbri between October 2005 and February 2006.
  • The Indestructible Man has a number of pastiche versions of Gerry Anderson characters such as Scarlet. The title character, Captain Grant Matthews (Scarlet), was reconstructed by the Myloki (Mysterons) so that he couldn't die. As a member of the organisation PRISM (Spectrum), the colour-coded officer's uniform assigned to him was scarlet. The war with the Myloki is started by Captain Karl Taylor (Captain Black) who is recreated as a Myloki agent.
