** ''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.]]

* ''Fanfic/AFeddieStory'' consistently shows the best weapon the Federation has against Zeon and their [[HumongousMecha Zakus]] is aircraft. In particular, they are almost defenseless against high-performance heavy fighters or tactical bombers with heavy guided weapons; the only thing the Zakus can do is try to hide.

** Later on, the Narn, with the help of the Drazi, proceed to Centauri Prime to return the favor, though they at least restrain themselves to only using conventional heavy weapons (causing untold thousands of deaths, as opposed to the Centauri's attack on Narn being essentially a WMD attack severe enough that even the Vorlons gave them a "WhatTheHellHero" response.

By no mere coincidence, these are by far the strongest ground forces in the setting.

* The aptly named "Galaxy Drops" in perpetual MMOFPS ''{{Planetside}}'' are carefully organized raids involving a fleet of ''Galaxy'' transports, each carrying a full squad of troopers, exosuit warriors, and a fully staffed vehicle, along with the Galaxy's own gunners and other air support. ** In Planetside 2, the Galaxy makes a comeback, along with the Liberator gunship, which can carry a quad 30mm gatling turret or a 150mm cannon for bombarding ground targets.
