* In David Gerrold's ''TheWarAgainstTheChtorr'' series of novels, the protagonist is scouting with his commander. The commander has a flamethrower while the protagonist has a weapon that shoots liquid nitrogen. Which comes in handy as they're trudging through huge dunes of alien plant dust. The spray weapon is able to compact the dust so they can walk on it. The flamethrower, as it turns out, has a more explosive reaction to that environment.

* A handheld (or hand-mounted) weapon in Creator/MikhailAkhmanov's ''[[ArrivalsFromTheDark Fighters of Danveys]]'' called the Freezer fires a shot which, at a specific point, creates a micro-singularity (i.e. a tiny black hole), which instantly drains the area within a several-meter radius of all heat. Yes, SpaceIsCold. Oh, and there's a [[MoreDakka rapid-firing]] version of the weapon.

* A Comedy programme on the BBC had a man come in with an invention where he froze the dragons (of ''DragonsDen'') after they refused to fund production of his gun which heated chicken instantly (and also did the reverse). He then nicks their cash.

* ''VideoGame/WarFrontTurningPoint'': an earlier example. The [[RedsWithRockets Soviet Union]], with their can deploy air-dropped [[SovietSuperscience freeze bombs]] and "[[FreezeRay Ice Spitter]]" Tanks in advance of an attack force; the metaphor used in-game is ''"canned Siberian weather"''. Like in RedAlert3, frozen units recover after a time, but are very vulnerable to damage and immobile.

* In ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'' in "Johnny vs Brain Freezer" A coffee guy/science student gets angry about not winning 1st place in the science fair so he gets a blaster, combines it with his coffee machine, and becomes the Brain Freezer and starts freezing people.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Mad}}'' an alien asks a person to take him to his people's leader in which he responds mockingly by pretending to call the president on his cellphone and insulting the alien's proposition. The alien then responds by saying "I think you're making fun of me." The guy replies "Where do you come from the genius planet?" The alien then freezes him with his gun and the guy says "I regret nothing."

* Gru from ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'' wields a freeze ray he invented, making for a comical opening scene of him casually walking down the city street freezing various people while shouting, "Freeze ray!!" Conveniently, the HarmlessFreezing effect allows him to be a villain without actually killing anyone.
