** Likewise, the orc army in ''Return of the King'' (see Literature, below). Their standard battering ram has absolutely no effect on Minas Tirith's gate, so they bring up Grond.

* ''Film/BenHur'' (2016). There's a HopeSpot when the Roman galley appears to have escaped danger, only for a Greek warship to come baring down on them and ram straight through their hull, causing their own galley to break up and sink. In a further horror, there's a [[CruelAndUnusualDeath Roman prisoner strapped to the front of the ram]].

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'' has the Caestus Assault Ram, a spacecraft intended to get close to enemy flagships, fire a magnamelta shot at it, then [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2v3KQcjX5M#t=31s ram through the now-softened armor]] to deliver a squad of SpaceMarines inside. Later someone figured that what can ram a MileLongStarship without damage to itself or passengers will probably work well against ground targets as well.

* ''Literature/{{TheInfected}}'' has a curious incident in which a battering ram, mounted in some kind of IFV, is used to bring down a chain-link fence. Nevermind that an armored vehicle could probably bring down the fence by simply driving through it.
