Of the screensaver modules included, the most famous is the iconic ''Flying Toasters'' which featured 1940s-style chrome [[toaster]]s sporting bird-like wings, flying across the screen with pieces of toast. A slider enabled users to adjust the toast's darkness and an updated ''Flying Toasters Pro'' module added a choice of music -- [[Richard Wagner]]'s [[Ride of the Valkyries]] or a flying toaster anthem with optional karaoke lyrics.<ref>{{cite web|url= http://www.mymac.com/showarticle.php?id=1363|archiveurl= http://web.archive.org/web/20100107035003/ http://www.mymac.com/showarticle.php?id=1363|archivedate=2010-01-07 |title=AfterDark Deluxe  -- Review |publisher=Mymac.com |date= |accessdate=2010-03-18}}</ref> Yet another version called ''Flying Toasters!'' added bagels and pastries, baby toasters, and more elaborate toaster animation. The Flying Toasters were one of the key reasons why After Dark became popular, and Berkeley began to produce other merchandising products such as T-shirts, with the Flying Toaster image and slogans such as "The 51st Flying Toaster Squadron: On a mission to save your screen!"

Originally developed by the military for use in reconnaissance, it rapidly became apparent to all that flying toasters were far more useful for delivering provisions to captured or trapped soldiers than they were as spies, due partly to a number of handicaps from which the toasters suffered which interfered with their abilities as spies. Notable among their drawbacks were a lack of eyes, ears, or other senses which would have allowed them to actually learn anything, as well as their innate lack of brain which would have prevented them from remembering anything had they actually learned it.
