* Of note here are the A.I. characters from ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'', one of whom described a plan to destroy the power station of the Pfhor on the planet Lh'owon as, effectively, "Step one: drop an asteroid on the roof of the (underground) power plant. Step two: drop the BadAss protagonist down the hole." This is about 25% of the way through ''Marathon 2: Durandal'', and similar plans occur elsewhere in Creator/{{Bungie}} games (The [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Master Chief]] in a drop pod is more dangerous than a warship)

** The A-10 "Thunderbolt II" attack aircraft (A.K.A. the "Warthog") - A close-air support aircraft capable of carrying a dozen bombs or missiles on the sort of "low and slow" flight plan necessary for accurate ground attack, but its main feature is a tank-busting [[GatlingGood 30mm rotary cannon]] that fires 65 depleted uranium slugs EVERY SECOND. It can still do this with about half of everything [[{{Badass}} blown off]]. Even [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySuixFGIfbE#t=11s the noise it makes]], onomatopoeified as "BRRRRRRRT", has gained [[https://www.google.com/search?q=brrrrrt&tbm=isch a sort of iconic status]] in its own right.

* Dio Brando's [[MemeticMutation (in)famous]] steamroller attack, featured near the end of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' Part 3.
** Occurs again in Part 6 with Viviano Westwood's Stand, Planet Rays. When active, Planet Rays pulls Meteorites towards Westwood, burning them away before they make contact with him. Ones flying towards other people though will not do so. Now imagine that power being active during a fist-fight...
