The following Sci-Fi customised car number plates - with some fantasy ones tossed in - have been spotted on cars by various people (usually me) at one time or another, regardless of whether the Sci-Fi connection was intentional or not, eg: VULCAN which can either refer to the planet where Spock was born or the company who manufactures large gas heaters for homes. They are all listed here alphabetically along with their Sci-Fi references.
This page focuses mainly on Victoria issued plates for which only six digits are permitted, whereas some states like Western Australia can have nine. It's also worth noting different states are represented by different colours purely for easy reference and may not be the same colour/style as the actual plates themselves. I've also avoided listing international plates otherwise I'll end up with a thousand Jedi and Trekker varieties.
Important note: Plates which use numbers to substitute letters are not accepted eg: S1TH or J3DI.

As far as I'm concerned, a "4" will always be a "4" and will not be read as an "A". To highlight this further, General KAEL from the film Willow would appear as K43L which I refuse to accept. As it turns out the KAEL plate actually exists (it's listed below) so someone out there is listening to me

Last updated: August 2023


77 JEDI: It's likely the 77 refers to 1977 the year the film was released. Note this was seen on a green number plate which probably relates to Luke's lightsabre colour even though that didn't appear until Return of the Jedi - Star Wars
1701 E: NCC 1701 E, The Enterprise E's rego number as featured in the Star Trek films from First Contact to Nemesis - Star Trek Platepic
ALIEN: Pretty obvious I think. Funnily enough the aliens in Alien are actually referred to as 'Xenomorphs', but I that's pretty hard to put on a number plate LOL
ALLEN 1: Allen Bradley's call sign from within the computer. Now Allen should be spelt 'Alan' but hey I thought it was cool just knowing what the reference was ... spelling mistake notwithstanding - Tron
ANAKIN: Anakin Skywalker. Although if you're a bit of old fashioned purest you could also refer to Annikin Starkiller (note the different spelling) as he appeared in the early drafts of The Star Wars screenplay. Eventually Annikin morphed into Luke for the film while Anakin became his dad, yep that's one for the nerds - Star Wars
ANI 09: Anakin Skywalker in his kiddie years was often called 'Ani', and believe it or not in the film he was nine years old (yep this is for the nerds) - Star Wars The Phantom Menace
ARGOS: The name of a city - Jason and the Argonauts & Clash of the Titans
ARTOO: Artoo Detoo. If you're wondering what Artoo Detoo (R2-D2) really means, well his name was inspired from a term used during the production of THX 1138 and actually stands for 'Reel 2 Dialogue 2' ... NERD!!! - Star Wars
ARTWO: Artoo Detoo. As highlighted in the previous entry R2-D2 actually stands for 'Reel 2 Dialogue 2, however, it's still a mystery as to why it was written in long form. Still, he's a fantastic character and that's the main thing - Star Wars Platepic
ARWEN: Arwen-Undomiel, an elven woman who falls for Aragorn whom she eventually marries. Funnily enough I saw this number plate in the carpark of where I used to work - The Lord of the Rings

CIIIPO: See Threepio ("III" in Romulan numerals is read as "3") - Star Wars
CRUSHR: Beverly/Wesley Crusher - Star Trek: The Next Generation
CYBORG: There are number of references I can use for this including the film Cyborg itself, however, my personal choice is Robocop purely for the line "he's a cyborg you idiot!" - Robocop Platepic
DALEK: Quite possibly the most famous bad guys in any sci-fi TV series ever created, but remember they were ONLY meant to be travelling machines for the Kaled mutants - Dr Who
DARTH: Now this could reference any number of Sith Lords (Sidious, Maul, Vader, Tyrannus, Plagueis, etc) as all their names preceded with 'Darth' - Star Wars Platepic
DARTHK: This can be read as either Darth Kruhl or Darth Karnage, but let's go with Darth Krayt who was a Jedi Master from Tatooine who jumped ship to the Dark Side and ended up forming One Sith which superseded the famous "rule of two". He obviously did well for himself as he ended up being the Emperor of the Galaxy for a time a number of years after Palpatine's reign. This all comes from the expanded universe which was wiped from existence in 2012 (becoming Legends) so it doesn't count - Star Wars

FABI: FAB 1 is the rego plate of Lady Penelope's pink Rolls Royce ("I" in Roman numerals is read as "1") - The Thunderbirds
FIRST: The First Evil - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
FRACK: No this is NOT related to underground searching for gas deposits. Instead it's a swear word used as a substitute for that other, more famous, "F" word. Fortunately Frack was suitable for use on TV even though everyone knew what the context was. The spelling featured here is from the 70s version of the show (from the 1978 writer's guide) whereas the 2000's version is spelt without the "C" - Battlestar Galactica Platepic

If you happen to see or photograph any sci-fi inspired customised car rego plates in your travels (whether the reference be intentional or not), be sure to let the Dags know ASAP at - use the subject line "SF Rego Plate" - so he can include it in the listing. Let's make this list as comprehensible as possible!

Non sci-fi plates that still grabbed my attention

I thought these were pretty unique and worthy of a separate list. In no particular order.


ONAMEX: As seen on a sports car which I thought was pretty clever
INDEBT: Something most people are in when they buy a new car
SNOT: Can you please explain to me why ANYONE would want this?

MRBEAN: Actually seen on a green Mini Minor
KERMIT: Our favourite little green frog
KERMEE: What happens when KERMIT is taken? Go for the next best thing as this is what Miss Piggy always called him
DREVIL: Dr. Evil from Austin Powers trilogy, in fact when I first saw this plate I thought it was pronounced as one word, Drevil, until I realised what it REALLY said
THEBOG: Kinda makes you wonder what the insipration for this was
ZORRO 1: Who was that masked man???
ZZTOP: A rock group
ABCDEF: I wonder if the rest of the alphabet is featured on another plate somewhere
KAPUT: When your car breaks down, it'll be easy to tell roadside assist what's happened to it
VIRUS: Would you ever get sick of this plate? :)
TOILET: Like SNOT above, why would anyone want this?
STUKA: A famous German WW2 aircraft
MRHYDE: Dr Jeckyl's alter ego
OOMPA: Those famous little dudes with the dodgy singing voices from Willy Wonka's chocky factory, which makes you wonder if someone has the plate LOOMPA
DOOF: Considering you need two plates for one car, you really will have some "doof doof"
OLDGIT: This would make a great gift for anyone who's older than you are
UNHOLY: Wouldn't you love to park this car outside a church
SCUM: Makes you wonder if this refers to the driver or the road users the driver sees

WOTAMI: Seen on a car so heavily modified that its make and model could not be identified
PRISON: If the interior door handles don't work, then this plate would be ideal

CINEMA: For movie lovers
PHLEGM: Like SNOT and TOILET above, why would anyone want this? It was even on a green plate!

WWAR 3: Think this dude knows something we don't
WW2VET: World War 2 Veteran, I'm not sure if the guy himself picked this or whether it was given to him, but I thought it was quite poignant. With this in mind you'd have to assume someone out there has NAMVET or similar

FEB 14: Valentine's Day - how cute
SLOPPY: This might've been a gift from some parents to their teenage son
HENRY 8: Imagine the history lesson ... "there was this dude, see, who was a king. Well he got married lotsa times but instead of just giving the old wives the toss when he got sick of 'em, he lopped their heads off instead ... which meant a reconcilement was kinda outta the question. But hey, at least history remembers him for it."
BATGRL: Doesn't it just bring back pleasant memories of Yvonne Craig
BPEARL: Pirate Ship "Black Pearl" - Pirates of the Carribean
FBIVAN: This was seen on a shiny black van similar to those seen in US cop shows, so clearly whoever owned this is a big fan US law enforcement. It makes you wonder when it stops do all these dudes wearing FBI flak jackets suddenly pour out
I'M BATMAN: I just hope he has this on an appropriate looking car rather than something dorky like a Daewoo
TOP GEAR: You'd have to think is a very obvious one to get ... being on a car and all
