* ''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.

**''VideoGame/TotalWarWarhammer'' includes the ram when besieging, but it becomes redundant for some races who have access to monstrous creatures (such as giants, Dragon Ogres, or Varghulfs) who are more durable than a wooden ram and can smash a gate apart just as easily.

* ''{{Discworld/Pyramids}}'' has Alfonse, an pirate covered in highly explicit tattoos who appears to have found employment as a battering ram in the past. He also turns into a shamefaced wreck when the woman in charge of the palace handmaidens' education uses him as a living diagram, his fingers stuck in his ears as hard as he can.
