* In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', [[BadassAdorable Rocket Raccoon]] orchestrates a prison break by turning off the artificial gravity everywhere but in the guard tower, then [[CrowningMomentofAwesome flying said guard tower through the rest of the base.]]

* The manga series ''Manga/CannonGodExaxxion'' does interesting things with this trope. Rather than simply a HandWave for people walking around a spaceship like it was an earthbound movie set, they explore all kinds of neat stuff you can do once you've made gravity and inertia yours, including, but not limited to:

* VisualNovel/AoNoKanataFourRhythm is based on [=Grav-Shoes=], which let the local citizens fly and play the FictionalSport, Flying Circus. Kind of a cross between baseball and [[Franchise/HarryPotter Quidditch]].

Related to GravitySucks. NoGravityForYou is what happens when characters get GenreSavvy about the FridgeLogic of this trope. When it's a superpower, you get a GravityMaster.

Added DiffLines:

* Gravity in ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' is something of an odd beast since the setting attempts to emulate Buck Rogers, John Carter and Flash Gordon. In general artificial gravity works in one of two ways:
** The general explanation of how gravity on Earthling [[RetroRocket rocket ships]] works is that the thrust of the ship's engines creates enough acceleration to create gravity. However, the fact that the gravity may vary with the ship's acceleration is never touched on. The [[WordOfGod official]] [[ShrugOfGod line]] is that gravity only really matters when it would be dramatic or interesting for it to do so.
** Rocket Age's most advance race, the Europans, seem to have true artificial gravity be dint of the fact that their [[FlyingSaucer ships]] can actively ignore it's effects, along with other things such as inertia.

* ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' is quite realistic in its use of artificial gravity, especially in the Universal Century continuity. The main source of artificial gravity here is inertia, which explains why certain shots show [[SpaceColony space colonies]] spinning around.

** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' is the first entry to have actual ArtificialGravity on spaceships, no spinning required. How it works hasn't been explained beyond the fact that "Ahab Reactors" make it possible.

* You can create gravity by increasing the spin of a massive object in a similar manner as you can generate an electric field by increasing the power of a magnet. Once the spin stops increasing, the gravity goes away. It does still have a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravitoelectromagnetism gravitomagnetic]] field that will affect objects moving past quickly, just like a magnet will alter the direction of an electron beam.

* You can create gravity gravity, but not in a useful way since the effect is 15 orders of magnitude less than 1 g for reasonable velocities, by increasing the spin of a massive object in a similar manner as you can generate an electric field by increasing the power of a magnet. Once the spin stops increasing, the gravity goes away.

** the effect described is much smaller than the gravity of the object spinning. For example, for the earth at the equator the effect would equal 1 x 10^-15 times the surface gravitational force for an object moving at 1 meter per second. (It is proportional to velocity of the object.)
