*** The Warthog's WWII-era ancestor, the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_P-47_Thunderbolt Republic P-47 Thunderbolt]], is also well-known for this. Its armament of ten under-wing rockets, 2,500 pounds of bombs, and ''[[MoreDakka eight]]'' [[MoreDakka M2 heavy machine guns]] made it one of the most feared ground-attack planes of the war. And with its [[LightningBruiser powerful engine and brick-house durability]], it was a respectable air-to-air fighter to boot!

** ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' adds conventional artillery used by the clonetroopers, devastating enough that half a dozen ''wiped out an army''.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' has a number of attacks that fit this. Doom Desire sends up a wish that, after a few turns, results in an ''enormous'' blast of silvery-purple light that completely annihilates the opponent. Judgment is similar, but it [[GameBreaker requires no charge time, is much stronger, can be any type]], and is [[PurposefullyOverpowered only learnable by]] [[OlympusMons Arceus]], ''the creator of the universe''. Thunder calls forth a bolt of lightning from the heavens to strike down the foe, and Draco Meteor creates a catastrophic meteor storm. Weather Ball sends up a small ball of energy that absorbs the power of the current weather, charges up, and falls back down to hit the enemy. Solarbeam (currently) drops an ''enormous'' column of weaponized sunlight on the enemy.

* VideoGame/{{Fallout}}, despite the fact that it's literally taking place in a world that had been in love with nukes, has very few instances of this. Specifically coming to mind are the KillSat facilities you can commandeer in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' (''Broken Steel'''s first mission is titled "Death From Above", and Liberty Prime is destroyed this way during that quest) and ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''. Vegas also has the Boomers, a formerly-Vault-dwelling tribe that ended up taking over an air force base loaded with artillery cannons. If you befriend them and complete their quests, they not only help out in the [[GrandFinale Assault on Hoover Dam]] with their cannon, but with a fully restored [[CoolPlane B-29 Superfortress]], against a bunch of guys in leather armor with machetes.

In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', this is the Minutemen's faction power, giving you the ability to call down artillery strikes and shell raider and super mutant camps into dust, [[spoiler:and it's this ability which allows the Minutemen to inflict a CurbStompBattle on the Brotherhood of Steel in the GrandFinale as their CoolAirship gets blown out of the sky and their squads of power armour-equipped {{Elite Mook}}s get torn to pieces from miles away.]]
