Heavens! Not that fast!
As noted on the KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter page, you have to get something of mass ''m'' whipped up to .87 ''c'' [[note]]Approximately, 68,121,000,000 km/s in vacuum.[[/note]] to have the same amount of energy as a matter/antimatter reaction where both the matter and antimatter that you're annihilating have a combined mass of ''m''.

* Antimatter is the fuel of choice for starships in ''StarControl'' and mentioned by Commander Hayes to be expensive to make -however the Melnorme sells it quite cheaply-. It also powers the Utwig bomb [[spoiler: that you must use to destroy the Sa-Matra]], and oddly enough can be found as an exotic ore on certain planets.

* The title SuperRobot of ''CannonGodExaxxion'' is powered by an antimatter reactor. According to the BackStory, the aliens who created it were said to have found an asteroid made of the stuff, which they harvested for fuel until its orbit decayed and it crashed into the nearest planet and practically wiped out their civilization.

* Antimatter is used in explosives in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', usually consisting of minuscule amounts of antimatter encased in fullerene molecules - breaking these up will cause a massive explosion. Most notably, a minor character once smuggled antimatter out of a facility in paper bags. Resident MadScientist Kevyn turned his uniform insignia into a pair of antimatter grenades, [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2005-05-31 one of which]] uses some antimatter to penetrate DeflectorShields and the rest to blow upsomething the size of a tank, [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20050604.html the other]] destroyed an enemy base, and though indirectly, brought down ''a spaceship in orbit of the planet''.

** In the 1986 CrisisCrossover CrisisOnInfiniteEarths, an antimatter wave erased several universes from existence- without exploding or disintegrating itself in the process. It was brought about by another antimatter Evil Counterpart too.

** PreCrisis, the antimatter universe Earth was rather the planet Qward, as the Crime Syndicate lived in one of the matter universes. Post Crisis, both the Crime Syndicate Earth and Qward are worlds in the same antimatter universe.

Removed typo. c^2 is not a speed unit.

* The tendency of antimatter to annihilate air molecules it comes in contact with is actually used in ''GundamSEED'', where the CoolShip fires its positron canons ahead of it when heading back into space to clear out air resistance. Called, "Positronic Interface."

* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsW'': The Earth Federation never gets the N-Jammer Canceler technology, which played an important role in the plot of ''GundamSEED'' by allowing the Federation to use nuclear weapons. In the game, antimatter warheads are substituted for the nukes as needed.

* One of the most powerful offensive spells in ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' creates a small magic sphere full of antimatter and hurls it at the target. It is quite fittingly called "Annihilate", as only the most powerful tanks or HumongousMecha are likely to survive getting hit by it. ** On the tech side, Antimatter cruise missiles are among the more powerful missile weapons in the Three Galaxies setting.

Added DiffLines:
* At the end of ''WesternAnimation/ExoSquad'', series BigBad Phaeton was preparing to use an antimatter device to destroy the Earth rather than let the Exofleet liberate it (or die himself of Automutation Syndrome).
