* Mr. Freeze from ''Franchise/{{Batman}}''.
** The exact size and shape of Freeze's Freeze Gun has varied wildly over the years; when it first debuted, it [[http://www.comics101.com/comics101//news/Comics%20101/67/mrzero.jpg looked more like a teakettle than anything]]. Since then, it's been portrayed as everything from the standard futuristic-pistol design to a massive two-handed cannon connected to a backpack to a tiny, unassuming-looking device mounted on the wrist of his armor.

** The Prequel ''WesternAnimation/Minions'' shows a much younger Dr. Nefario demonstrating the gun to an audience (and freezing his own hand) in Villain-Con, which implies Gru actually got the gun (or perhaps stole it) from him.

* More of a Freeze Rod/Bomb, but the Thermal Tazer and Thermal Shok Bomb in ''VideoGame/{{XCOM}}: Terror From The Deep'' both use intense cold to render their targets unconscious.

* ''TheAdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' episode "Baby-Sitter Jitters" features Robotnik's "Reversible Melt-O/Freeze-O Ray", pairing this trope with its inverse. However, the two modes aren't used in tandem to any significant effect: early on, Robotnik is hit by the "Freeze-O" mode and [[InstantIceJustAddCold trapped in a block of ice]], while in the climax the "Melt-O" mode makes a hole in a thick metal door that's trapping Sonic and Tails.

* The physical impossibility of such a device is mentioned in an episode of ''ChalkZone,'' but Rudy draws one up anyways, reasoning that imagination overrides logic in a realm composed of animated chalk drawings.

* Castle Brass in Creator/MichaelMoorcock's ''TheHistoryOfTheRunestaff'' has such a defensive weapon. Among many others.

* 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.

* ''{{Champions}}'' supplement ''Classic Organizations'', "Red Doom" section. The {{NPC}} Cold Warrior has a power pack backpack that can condense water out of the air to create ice. He uses it to create ice bolts and entangle opponents.
* ''{{GURPS}} Warehouse 23''. The Greys (space aliens) have a FreezeRay device that can fire a beam of focused cold at the target, freezing it solid and coating it with ice.

* The Cryolator from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' sprays enemies with a cryogenic compound in order to freeze them. It can also be modified to [[AbnormalAmmo shoot chunks of solid ice]].
