* In ''VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake'', you have to do this against the final boss. You have to jury-rig[=/=] [[MacGyvering MacGyver]] the weapon out of bits and pieces lying around, all the while being hunted by the machine-gun wielding [[spoiler:Big Boss]]. whom you then have to burn to death with your homemade makeshift motherfucking flamethrower. Having to do that is part of what causes Snake's HeroicBSOD that he ends up retiring over between this and [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid the next game]].

* When ''VideoGame/ProjectZomboid'' introduced the Engineer profession, hairspray was among the household items an Engineer could work up into [[ImprovisedWeapon homebrew destructive contraptions]]. In this case, the unreliable handheld flamethrower is passed over for a fused incendiary bomb, basically a can of spray with a few sparklers [[MacGyvering held tightly]] in a wrapping of aluminum foil. With the addition of some Electrical skill and spare parts, the bomb can be upgraded with an adjustable timer, a proximity sensor, or a remote detonator.

* This is one of the many weapons you can find in ''VideoGame/{{Blood}}''. You can either use the traditional method, or light it and toss it like a grenade. The bug spray weapon in ''Blood 2'' works on the same principle, substituting a CartoonBugSprayer filled with extremely acidic and flammable bug spray for a can of aerosol.

Subtrope of ImprovisedWeapon. A character uses an aerosol can, such as hairspray, with a match or lighter as a makeshift [[FireBreathingWeapon flamethrower]]. A '''''serious''''' case of DontTryThisAtHome, because there's a very real risk that the flames will heat the canister up enough for it to rupture and explode. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Also, it smells terrible.]] You can accidentally poison yourself if you keep doing it, thanks to the fumes. See also FartsOnFire for a smaller, more comedic version of this.

See also BoozeFlamethrower, MolotovCocktail, and ArrowsOnFire. If a gas canister ''itself'' becomes a weapon, that's a GasCylinderRocket.
