* The ''Film/{{Ghostbusters|1984}}'' features the Proton Pack (featured as the trope image and subject of the trope quote), a man-portable particle accelerator which, through an attached "Neutrona Wand", is used as a sort of lasso to wrangle the ghosts into a position to be trapped properly. The wildly undulating particle streams also have a nasty habit of causing lots of collateral damage.

* ''VideoGame/GlobalAgenda'', trying very hard to be a modern Tribes, does this. The jetpacks open up when you activate them, and dont close for a few seconds. You can color them. They're shiny. The devs realized at some point that the thing you spend hours looking at should be ''pretty''. The medic ones have tubes of ''something'' running through them. Not sure what it is, but it has almost as much animation in making the tubes of shining goop bounce as for the rest of the player model.
