** Krillin's Kienzan or Destructo Disk acts like a sawblade that cuts through anything. Only problem is that unless used at very close range, it often swerves every which way, missing the target as a result.
** Frieza has a deadlier version, the Death Saucer. Not only does it cut through anything, but it ''chases'' after the opponent. They require that Frieza maintain constant focus to make them go where he wants; [[HoistByHisOwnPetard so when he loses his focus (and loses track of his own location relative to the disk), his body is torn by half.]]

* Eternal Anime/SailorMoon does this with a [[EdibleAmmunition pizza]]. Though it's technically a ShoutOut to her first attack, Moon Frisbee/Moon Tiara Action, and she no longer has a tiara in the Eternal form.

* In ''Literature/ALordFromPlanetEarth'', Sergey ends up on an alien planet and is surprised to learn that all the advanced weaponry utterly fails to work, when neutralizing fields are employed. Thus, WarfareRegression is in play, and everyone uses [[AbsurdlySharpBlade planar swords]] that can cut through anything (including each other, so no {{Blade Lock}}s). Being a veteran soldier and a CombatPragmatist, Sergey quickly comes up with alternative weapons to give himself an advantage, as he lacks swordfighting experience.He glues shards of broken planar blades to a metal disc and uses it as a thrown weapon several times. The first time, he cleanly decapitates a guard (causing his LoveInterest to throw up). However, it fails against the first book's genetically-engineered BigBad, who casually snatches the weapon out of the air with his SuperReflexes and points out that Sergey isn't the first to suggest such a weapon, but the rulers of the universe have done their best to ruthlessly suppress such ideas in order to maintain the "honor" of swordfighting. By the second book, Sergey builds himself a MagneticWeapon that fires smaller versions of such discs, although their center of mass is shifted, so that they act like hollow-point bullets when entering someone's body.

* The ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'' video game has a disc launcher as an unlockable weapon, collected by finding Mr. Potato Head's eye and returning it to him in the Construction Yard level. This weapon is essential for defeating the Jackhammer mini-boss in the same level, as well as opening the drawers in the office to get a [[PlotCoupon Pizza Planet Token]] in the Al's Toy Barn level.

* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'' has Geno and his Geno Whirl special attack, which throws an energy disc shaped vaguely like a CD. Properly timed, it hits the damage cap of 9999 on any sufficiently vulnerable enemy and is effectively a OneHitKill.

* ''StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' has a special fight during their Return of the Gree event. You run through the alien space ship (which is ''completely'' lit up with patches of neon color and silver TronLines) to obtain a "blue torus." Conventional weapons like lightsabers and blasters do not work on the final boss of the mission. you have to take it out with the torus. Yes, you're in a ''StarWars'' game [[Film/{{Tron}} fighting a giant robot with a]] DeadlyDisc. How's that merger working out, Disney?

* The Eviscerator from ''VideoGame/KillingFloor2'' shoots large sawblades with massive force, having the third-highest damage and second-highest penetration power of every weapons in the game. It's magazine-fed, too, and the sawblades can be retrieved and reused after they stop bouncing around. On top of all of that, it can be used as a more conventional buzzsaw by using the motor to spin the blade.

* The same Disc Gun returns in ''VideoGame/NuclearThrone'', with the exact same mechanics (save for being in a top-down game instead of a side-view one). [[spoiler:There's also a Super Disc Gun, which can only be found in specific chests after a certain point in the game. It shoots five discs at once, in a shotgun-like spread.]]
