Not to be confused with [[DroneOfDread Drone music]] or ''VideoGame/DroneTactics''. Compare AttackAnimal (which might overlap if the drone is intelligent enough to act on instructions, rather than direct control). Contrast OrbitingParticleShield. Might be deployed by the, well, DroneDeployer. (Or EnemySummoner, if they summon the drones via FunctionalMagic)

* In the strategy game ''VideoGame/EndWar'', The [[YanksWithTanks Joint Strike Force]] and [[EuropeanUnionIsASuperpower EF Enforcer Corps]] both have access to [[TankGoodness armed ground drones]], which are used to defend control points and mobile command vehicles. In addition, all three playable factions can deploy air drones, which are used to scout out areas from above, as well as harass enemies with light weaponry.

* ''WebAnimation/FTLKestrelAdventures'': Par for the course for FTL: Faster Than Light:
Inverted, initially, since the Crew bought the Drone Control System to use a point-defense drone.
Many enemies though, use combat drones, One of them who proclaims himself as the greatest mercenary, uses nothing but Beam weapons including a beam drone.

* Missiles and torpedoes are arguably an example, being small aerial or naval craft launched from a (usually) safe distance to approach a target and explode. Torpedoes in particular were originally ''stationary'' mines, which evolved to be dragged by a small boat, then later rigged to a spar on the front, before incorporating the engine into the weapon itself and allowing the sailors to launch it and let it sail off unattended. Missiles, meanwhile, were basically bombs rigged to rockets, allowing planes to attack targets without getting right on top of them.

* In ''VideoGame/Goldeneye007'', drone guns are DemonicSpiders that will kill you in a matter of seconds On higher difficulty levels. They show up again in the ''VideoGame/GoldeneyeWii'' remake. Although they are annoying as they were before, in this game you can use your Smartphone to hack them, which will cause them to attack any guards in their line of sight.

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' has Psycho Launchers, which are essentially a pair of personal attack drones that serve as the ranged weapon for the Blast Fencer and Galactic Knight classes. A more traditional drone is also available for Skells to equip, and will bombard the target with lasers for a while when summoned. Combining this with effects that reduce/reset cooldowns can lead to unholy levels of BeamSpam, as several groups of drones can be active simultaneously.

After clearing the main story campaign, you can unlock super weapons, two of which are drone-based; one being a massive [[KillSat kill sat]] that fires an incinerating thermal beam and another which launches series of disk-shaped blades that slice and dice everything within a large circular radius
**On the flipside, Ganglions also have drone weapons equipped to their giant Xern machines, launching Drone Eggs that don't fire nearly as much your Skell, but hit like a tank and will most certainly kill you unless you're in cockpit mode or have insane evasion stats.
