* There are five tiers of basic missile weapons in ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}''. Antimatter missiles make up the middle one, more powerful than [[NukeEm nuclear and fusion missiles]] but weaker than the Quantum and Marauder models.

* ''Manga/DoubutsuNoKuni'': When Juu return for [[CurbStompBattle his revenge]] against [[HijackedByGanon Giller]], readers are wondering how someone using [[BadWithTheBone swastika-shaped bone spear]] could compete with his newest [[HybridMonster Chimera]] who can spit [[NukeEm nuclear blast]], [[HealingFactor regenerate from said blast]], can [[SensorCharacter detect even bacteria]] and having [[TimeAbyss livespan of a star]] to boot? By giving him an antimatter weapon of course!
-->'''Giller:''' What is that?
-->'''Juu:''' Antimatter. '''3 kg''' of them.
-->When Giller ask how he found that many antimatter, he replied that human's technology develop exponentially during war times, making it
-->possible to gather such stellar amount of antimatter

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

* ''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends'': In "Journey into Blackness", Earth starts getting sucked into a black hole. Batman attempts to stop it by blasting it with antimatter, but fails as the antimatter simply gets sucked into the black hole without destroying it.

** One story concerns a visit to a planet that - unknown to the explorers - is made of antimatter. In a later book, it is discussed that the crew of a ship armed with antimatter weapons will expend their ammo at the first possible justified opportunity, for their own safety's sake.

* Kraken in ''LightNovel/UnlimitedFafnir'' has the ability to shoot antimatter projectiles. These clearly don't act like normal antimatter, as they liberate much less energy upon hitting their target than would be expected from their size. In-universe, the reason why they're dangerous is that they annihilate any matter on contact, even the super-tough alloy mithril. Mitsuki gains a weaker version of this power after killing Kraken.

* In ''Literature/LunaMarine'' by Creator/IanDouglas, the discoveries of AncientAstronaut ruins on Mars and the Moon kick off an ArchaeologicalArmsRace between the US and the [[UnitedNationsIsASuperpower UN]]. Both sides are working on antimatter-powered ships (tiny amounts of antimatter are dropped into tanks full of water; the resulting matter/antimatter reaction turns the water into plasma that is then expelled through the engines, allowing the ship to accelerate at 6 gravities). While the US has been manufacturing its antimatter stores the old-fashioned way (i.e. particle accelerators), UN scientists have managed to locate and reactivate an [[{{Precursors}} Ahn]] device that produces a steady stream of antiprotons. They first adapt it for use as a particle beam weapon, which only really works because they're on the Moon (i.e. no air particles to react to antiprotons). UN scientists are still struggling to make the antimatter engine work. If the UN ship is launched ahead of its US counterpart, the war will be pretty much over, as the ship's speed and firepower will be unrivaled in the system, and the antimatter cannon will be able to rain destruction on American cities.

[[spoiler:Fortunately, the USS ''Ranger'' is launched before the ''Guerrier'''s enginers are fully functional. While she doesn't have an antimatter weapon, her array of powerful lasers still prove formidable, and being able to reach the Moon in under 2 hours is certainly impressive]].

* [[ComicBook/XMen Warren's]] evil uncle, Burtram Worthington aka [[NamesTheSame The Dazzler]], is a GadgeteerGenius that marked his mooks with special particles he can track. He's also capable of remotely transmuting those particles into antimatter to vaporize anyone that betrays him. Besides the fact that enough antimatter to obliterate the mass of person would also obliterate everything around them for miles if not the whole planet, it's safe to say if he wasn't so into the villainy, he could easily [[CutLexLuthorACheck turn a profit]] from ''remotely generating antimatter''.

* ''Film/TheGiantClaw'' has an antimatter shield that destroys anything the military fires at it. [[FridgeLogic Why it doesn't explode the air is never addressed]].
