* 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.

* In ''Franchise/BioShock'', one of the plasmids your character can pick up is called Winter Blast, which allows you to temporarily freeze an enemy, allowing you to shatter him with another weapon, although usually you [[DisadvantageousDisintegration won't be able to take any items they were carrying]]. ** Freezing enemies can also be done via the chemical thrower when using liquid nitrogen. However, this only freezes the target in place, [[HarmlessFreezing dealing no damage]].

* The Freezethrower from ''VideoGame/DukeNukem3D''. * The Ice Beam from ''{{Metroid}}'' games. ''MetroidPrime 2: Echoes'' has a PaletteSwap of the beam in the [[CastingAShadow Dark Beam]] (which only freezes with charged shots). * Like everything ''else,'' it's summonable in ''{{Scribblenauts}}''. It temporarily traps things in blocks of ice. [[HarmlessFreezing Freezing is harmless,]] so it's a good way to deal with hostile creatures you're not allowed to hurt. * The shotgun in ''{{Painkiller}}'' has this as its secondary fire mode: Ideally, this can be used to first freeze an enemy, and then fire the shotgun to [[LiterallyShatteredLives instantly shatter the monster]], often sparing lots of time.

* More of a Freeze Rod/Bomb, but the Thermal Tazer and Thermal Shok Bomb in ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}: Terror From The Deep'' both use intense cold to render their targets unconscious. * In RiddleSchool 5, this is the ultimate plan of [[spoiler:Viz. He planned to freeze all the planets using a ray that harnessed Zack's coldness. Fortunately, it backfired on him.]]

fixed a missing ] in a note.
** Not exactly an energy ray, but if you hold a can of compressed air upside down, the can sprays a jet of very cold liquid. It's fun as a novelty, but that's about it. This is because the sudden drop in pressure causes the propellant [[note]which sits in the bottom of the can and expands up to push out the can's contents[[/note]] to spread its energy over a wider area, making it colder. The propellant most often used? Nitrogen, in this case ''liquid nitrogen''. It should go without saying that letting this touch you is probably a bad idea.

* ''RobotChicken'' had a sketch parodying a similar situation to the Young Justice example above. Several different cold-themed villains with freeze-rays show up, one after another, to steal the same priceless giant gem and they all start bickering over who has a better thematic claim to it. Eventually, yet another villain destroys a wall with his freeze-ray in order to burst in, and the combined structural damage they've all done making their entrances collapses the entire building on top of them.
