* ''Film/SupermanIII'' featured "beltric acid," which became super-corrosive if it heated up far enough. It ends up as a ChekhovsGun in the final fight against the rogue computer.

There's also a completely unguarded pit filled with some kind of roiling acid present at the junkyard battle, seemingly [[RuleOfCool just because]].

* Comes shaped as a CoolSword in Stuart Hopen's ''Warp Angel'', the setting has a gladiatorial weapon known as an 'acid sword'. An acid sword is a force-field projecting hilt that shapes an extremely corrosive pool of acid into a blade. Getting hit by one tends to result in limbs getting melted off and large gouges getting burnt into flesh. The acid sword is so corrosive that, with the exception of the force field of another acid sword, the blade will dissolve through anything in the story setting including hardened far-future alloys.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chlorine_trifluoride Chlorine trifluoride]] - not technically an acid, but it burns through flesh, glass, rock and concrete like nobody's business. When mixed with water it explodes and forms hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids as ''byproducts''. And for bonus points, in its liquid state it actually is a greenish-yellow color. While [[ThoseWackyNazis the Nazis]] considered the acid [[EvenEvilHasStandards too nasty to use in actual combat]] even by their standards, they did produce the stuff throughout [[WorldWarII the war]] at a partially underground bunker near the town of Falkenhagen. By the time the [[RedsWithRockets Red Army]] captured the facility in 1944, already ''30 to 50 tonnes'' of the acid had been made at the cost of 100 German Reichsmark (equal to 4.2 USD) per kilogram.

* Many real acids do ''some'' of the things commonly attributed to Hollywood acids. Common acids do dissolve ordinary metals, producing flammable hydrogen gas in the process (though plastic, glass, concrete, and most other common materials are unaffected). The stronger ones can also burn flesh, and produce some very nasty fumes, like smelling vinegar but far stronger. Most acids won't dissolve flesh, though, bases are actually better at this.[[note]]The flesh is made of proteins, which are, in turn, made of thousands of amino acids connected together by a structure known as a peptide bond, -CO-NH- - due to its structure, this bond is susceptible to be broken up by a strong base, like a sodium hydroxide, for example. An acid does such a job, too, but it requires much more time and much higher temperatures to accomplish.[[/note]]. However, most of the common acids are clear liquids that look just like water, and they certainly don't bubble continuously for the sake of it.

* RedAlert 2 has radiation, but the effect is very much the same. Infantry Units killed by radiation are covered in gunk and melts away after a second or two.

* ''VideoGame/{{Trine}} 2'' has a number of puzzles that involve acid. It doesn't dissolve ''everything'' - in particular, Pontius the knight had his shield conveniently acid-proofed before the game began - but it's still a bright green colour and destroys almost anything put in it.
