* In ''VideoGame/TalesFromTheBorderlands'', [[ConArtist Fiona and Sasha]] are trying to sell a counterfeit Vault key to [[{{Cyborg}} Rhys]]. Fiona uses a small EMP device to disable Rhys' ECHO Eye implant, preventing him from scanning the key and seeing it's a fake. [[spoiler: However, neither sister anticipates the device also disabling his [[ArtificialLimbs robotic arm]], making him drop the key and revealing it as a fake when it shatters on the floor.]]

* In ''All Frequency Jamming/Full Band Interception'' by Chinese Sci-Fi writer Cixin Liu, the future Russian (or Chinese, as it's changed in the Taiwanese version) army saved themselves from the conquer of NATO by using EMP in the most {{badass}} way -- first by deploying stationary EMP emitters, then by [[spoiler:ramming a giant space station into the sun]]!

If you want to do this zapping without the nuclear fallout, there are a few [[http://science.howstuffworks.com/e-bomb3.htm smaller weapons]] that can generate an EMP. Such a thing is usually a kind of single-use electric generator, which sends out its pulse when crushed by a conventional explosive. The pulse is far weaker, and can kill maybe an office full of computers. In case you wonder why the same explosive charge alone couldn't do it, a range can be extended by rigging up a generator to get a directional emission of microwaves instead of a plain magnetic surge. Getting a city-sized EMP without a nuclear bomb is not feasible with current technology; as to reusable variants, if we had the capacitors necessary to do that, we could also build practical [[MagneticWeapons railguns]] and laser rifles. It is also possible to [[http://www.electronicproducts.com/Power_Products/Power_Management/How_to_build_a_mini_EMP_generator_to_disrupt_electronics.aspx build a portable EMP jammer on your own]] with a disposable point-and-shot camera's electrolytic capacitor, a generator and a magnetic coil to launch.
