** Diamondhead in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' takes this to the point of almost winning the SuperPowerLottery thanks in no part to his unique physiology. He can naturally shoot out crystalline projectiles, create structures made out of diamond to protect him from attacks that surpass his [[SuperToughness insane durability]] and can shapeshift his limbs into weapons. Later shows give him the ability to make his [[StuffBlowingUp projectiles volatile]], create larger structures and the ability to telekinetically move them and the ability to [[CrystalPrison encase his enemies in crystal]].

** The "Gembomb" spell does exactly that, enhancing low-grade gemstones with explosive power as projectiles.
** In the original ''TabletopGame/TombOfHorrors'' module, one of the very few options to defeat the [[OurLichesAreDifferent Demilich]] Acererak's NighInvulnerability is for a Thief character to throw gemstones at him. Particularly sadistic since the gems in Acererak's crypt are some of the most valuable treasure in the module... and are destroyed if used to attack him.

* ''Anime/DigimonTamers'': This is Renamon's primary technique, 'Diamond Storm'. Much like the [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Diancie]] example below, it involves summoning a FlechetteStorm of gems and launching them at the opponent.

* Taric the Gem Knight from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' wears armour made out of gems, carries a large gem-studded shield and wields a ''massive'' [[DropTheHammer hammer]] studded with sharp gems. His gems are the source of his magic and he can both stun enemies with a dazzling blast of light from his shield and cause his crystalling aura to shatter explosively, shredding nearby enemies, as well as buff up nearby allies with the power of his radiance.

* The Female Titan ([[spoiler:Annie]]) from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' can crystallize her skin in order to [[GenreSavvy protect her weak spot]] or enhance the power of her punches. With a crystallized fist, she can break the [[LightningBruiser Rogue Titan's]] jaw off with one punch.

''VideoGame/UnrealTournament3'' merges it with the more standard [[MoreDakka Minigun]] into the "Stinger Minigun", primary fire shooting out bullet-sized shards like the old Minigun and SecondaryFire launching much larger chunks with a decent amount of knockback (and able to pin enemies to walls with killing blows) like the Stinger.



* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianSun'' has a critter known as "tiberian fiend", a horse-sized quadruped that attacks by throwing chunks of tiberium crystals at its targets.

** ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRenegade'' has the Tiberium Flechette Gun, a small nailgun-like weapon that launches shards of Tiberium. It's good against everything except [[ReviveKillsZombie mutants, who it heals]], which makes it a shame that it only appears after mutants take over for most basic enemies.
