Quinjets have made appearances in the animated series Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes by Disney XD.[citation needed] A larger, stylized Quinjet-like aircraft known as the Avenjet appears in the subsequent series Avengers Assemble, as the Avengers' personal transport vehicle.[citation needed]

The Quinjet appeared in The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as an aircraft carrier-compatible VTOL utility aircraft used primarily by S.H.I.E.L.D..[citation needed] A larger version appears in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War as an aircraft for the Avengers.[citation needed]. The Quinjet from Avengers: Age of Ultron appears again in Thor: Ragnarok having brought the Hulk to the planet Sakaar.[citation needed]
