** Bonus point for Specter in Kane's Wrath for being a stealth artillery that quote this trope word-to-word.

** Tornadoes, though they ''technically'' half spin up from the ground and half come down from the storm mesocyclone. Either way, when a funnel cloud "touches down" it is visually, if not technically, one of the most frightening natural invocations of the trope.

** Many different spells throughout the Franchise/TalesSeries in general like Burn Strike, Meteor Storm, and Indignation come down from the sky. A more bizarre recurring example is the Pow Rain spell, which rains ''toy squeaky hammers'' that stun (And in some games damage) whatever they land on.

* One of the reasons why the default missile warheads in ''SwordOfTheStars'' are nuclear (the other being that conventional explosives are useless in space). And by no means the only method, assault shuttles, [[SyntheticPlague biowar missiles]], [[ColonyDrop siege drivers]], and to be honest nearly all starship weapons are devastating to planets.

* A more practical version of the Rods From God is the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lazy_Dog_(bomb) Lazy Dog]] "bomb" used from World War II to the Vietnam War. These "bombs" are unguided kinetic projectiles about 1.75 inches long, a half-inch wide, and and 13 grams and dropped from planes in Mark 44 cluster adapters (weapons similar to bombs that pop open to spread Lazy Dogs). Lazy Dogs don't explode but what they do is just as bad; when dropped into the target, the entire area looks like somebody shot a machine gun with a ridiculously large caliber as tests had shown that Shape 5, an improved basic Lazy Dog slug, had the force of a .50 caliber bullet and could penetrate 24 inches of packed sand while Shape 2 could penetrate 12 inches of sand twice as much as a .45 caliber slug fired point blank. The Lazy Dogs could be dropped any way possible, ranging from Mar 44s to guys throwing buckets of the stuff. Anyone hit by a cluster of Lazy Dogs would be shredded apart. The rationale for dropping them in Vietnam was to attack enemies through the thick jungle.
