* 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.

* Pretty much most {{ShootEmUp}}s fall here, be your aircraft/spaceship/whatever, be the bomb attack (for example, in the first game of the ''VideoGame/AeroFighters'', the bomb of the Harrier is to call several [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avro Vulcan Vulcans]] to carpet bomb the screen.)

* In ''Literature/RogueStar'', the ''sun'' reaches out a tendril of plasma for a precision strike on Cliff Hawk's underground laboratory, where he's researching rogue stars. The results are unfortunate for the lab and the people inside it, but no more than annoying for the newly born baby star.

* This is pretty much what killed the dinosaurs (although recent research indicates that the earth was trying to become a LethalLavaLand at the time [again] and that the asteroid was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back). The Cretaceous Extinction was a Class 4 on the [[ApocalypseHow Sliding Scale Of Complete Destruction]]. The impact was explicitly called Death From Above by a [[TheHistoryChannel History Channel]] special about the geologic history of the Earth.
