* The anime adaptation of ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan'' has the tiny but incredibly powerful Esper Tatsumaki dealing with a giant Film/{{Godzilla}} {{Expy}} who gloats that he ruled as a king during the age of the dinosaurs and that the only thing that can defeat him is an asteroid from space. Tatsumaki promptly ''finds one'' and drops it on him. The last we see of the Dinosaur King is a charred skeleton in the bottom of a several mile wide crater. [[DestructiveSavior And no, she wasn't too worried about the collateral damage, either]].

* ''Very'' narrowly averted during [[spoiler: the Eros incident]] in Series/TheExpanse. Though on a much smaller scale, it is ultimately played straight during [[spoiler: the attack on Ganymede]].

* ''Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie'' Ivan Ooze's OneWingedAngel form is able to completely overpower the Rangers' Megazord. They decide to flee into space (aware he'll chase them) and lure into the path of an incoming comet, [[ChekovsGun mentioned earlier in the movie]]. [[spoiler:Getting him into the path of the comet is easy, getting out his grasp and away from it proves to be a problem]].

* In ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' several Red spells are related to throwing stars at your opponents, though in some cases its ambiguous if these are meant to be actual stars or falling stars.

* ''Literature/ReleaseThatWitch'': Roland eventually manages to beat [[spoiler:Zero]] in her MentalWorld by imagining a theoretical kinetic orbital strike weapon that drops thousands of pieces of metal slag from orbit, which under the effects of gravity and atmospheric entry turns it into flaming molten metal moving at high speed.

* Used as a tactic by [[BrainInAJar Titan]] Agamemnon in ''Literature/LegendsOfDune]]'' during the invasion of Geidi Prime. He sends a cruiser on a collision course for a [[DeflectorShield scrambler field]] emitter that is keeping the [[RobotWar Thinking Machines]] from invading. The sheet kinetic force of the fall destroys a large part of the capital city.

* The D20 fantasy setting ''DragonMech'' is in the middle of having its moon descend upon the planet. This is quite possibly the worst thing to happen to the world of Highpoint in a very long time, given that it's ''already'' destroyed the societies of several different races and it hasn't actually hit yet.
