* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in ''Literature/Shadowmarch''. In one version of the myth describing the gods fighting Kronos expy, gods have trouble harming him, until solar god grabs the Sun and hurls it in his father's face. That works.

* ''Literature/TheLostFleet'': Anyone BuriedInSpace has their casket launched on a trajectory that will enable its cremation in the nearest star, partly for practical reasons as they'd be a hazard to navigation if allowed to drift in space, but also because "the living stars" are a major part of the setting's dominant religion: Cremation by star is a symbolic way of becoming one with the universe.

** One episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheItchyAndScratchyShow'' has the titular duo pointing guns at each other that get larger and larger until they are half the size of the earth. The end result: Scratchy winds up being shout out of Itchy's gun, and into the sun.

** The Sun Crusher, an indestructible supernova-causing superweapon which would qualify as a Spaceship Sue if such a trope existed, was captured, shiny and barely used, by the New Republic in Kevin J. Anderson's ''[[Literature/JediAcademyTrilogy Jedi Academy]]'' trilogy of StarWarsExpandedUniverse novels. After debating whether to drop it into a sun or a gas giant (the unstated but clear implication of the "a gas giant is good enough" argument being that some of the politicians in charge wanted there to be a possibility that ''they'' could recover it if they later deemed it necessary), they picked the gas giant. Later, when new uber-powerful Force Sensitive Kyp Durron got haunted and went evil, he fished it out using the Force and remarked that he wouldn't have had much more trouble if it had been in the sun. Later it's thrown into a black hole, this time for good.

* We are just about starting to get to the point where we actually can have a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parker_Solar_Probe space probe]] reach the sun. As [[http://www.smartplanet.com/people/blog/pure-genius/solar-probe-first-mission-to-sun-scheduled-for-2018/5748/ the leading scientist behind the project explains,]] this is an extremely difficult process mainly due to the need to slow down the orbital momentum this probe has from being launched from Earth and involves using the gravity of Venus to slow the probe down in a process of seven approaches to Venus over a period of six years.

** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E8HumanNature "Human Nature"]], Wife of Mine (a member of the Family of Blood) gets tricked into falling into the event horizon of a collapsing galaxy, making it quite like this on a much larger scale. Of course, she didn't die. [[AndIMustScream And he didn't intend for her to.]]
