* Kangaroo rats kick sand into the eyes of snakes and then either run off or, if they outnumber a snake (as they tend to all be in the same area during mating cycles) jump at it and tear chunks of it's flesh off. Single kangaroo rats have also been recorded inflicting EyeScream by leaping up and biting ''into'' an eye, causing the snake to bleed out. They very rarely manage to pull this on birds in their natural habitat, though, especially owls, their greatest enemy.

* In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', this is an Unarmed technique that you can learn from the Great Khans known as the Khan Trick after completing a series of missions for them.
** Unusually for this trope, the nature of the game's engine and coding mean that it is possible to not just blind but actively ''kill'' someone ([[LudicrousGibs and even do so very gruesomely with the Bloody Mess perk]]) with just a handful of Mojave sand.

* OlderThanSteam: RealLife: Ninjas used to have ''metsubushi'' -- eggshells or bamboo tubes filled with pepper, dust, and ground-up glass -- for just this purpose.
** It can be argued that pepper spray is just a more modern implementation of this tactic.
* Okinawan oar-fighting has a couple techniques where the oar blade is used to flick sand into an opponent's eyes; if you're fighting with an oar, odds are you're on a beach.
** It'd work with water too, albeit more briefly.
