* The above mentioned ''Anime/AstroBoy'' example is, of course, re-enacted as the final level of the beloved GameBoyAdvance adaptation, ''VideoGame/AstroBoyOmegaFactor''. In this version you actually have to fly into the sun, dodging chunks of the FinalBoss, AsteroidThicket-style to get a piece of scrap metal containing the AI of Astro's love interest into the sun so she can stop the pieces that have already fallen in from causing a chain reaction that'll destroy the solar system.

* In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'''s GrandFinale, [[ComicBook/TheFlash Flash]] suggests this to Franchise/GreenLantern when dealing with a giant, towering machine...then feels embarrassed for mentioning it, only to be told that it could work. Even though it "doesn't quite make escape velocity", it's still a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome for both of them. This may have been an in-joke referencing a 2004 [[http://groups.google.com/group/rec.arts.comics.dc.universe/msg/c0d29c39c2cd9f84?hl=en Usenet thread,]] where producer DwayneMcDuffie responded to a suggestion that the previous week's episode could have been resolved by tossing the menace into the sun: "Our version of Green Lantern can't, Power Rings are no where near as mighty as they are in the DCU. The Darkheart was simply too big and heavy. Although it does suggest a really interesting spin-off, where every week GL throws whoever is attacking into the sun."

** The Sun Crusher, an indestructible supernova-causing superweapon which would qualify as a SpaceshipSue if such a trope existed, was captured, shiny and barely used, by the New Republic in Kevin J. Anderson's ''[[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.

* The most powerful unarmed attack in [[VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness the first]] ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' involves tearing up a section of the ground and shoving it (and the enemies on it, of course) into the sun. The [[VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories second]] and further games upgraded it to punching target so hard that it turns into a black hole. Which then explodes.

Realistically, the Shuttle -- and any spacecraft built to date -- has ''nowhere'' near the thrust needed. You'd have to cancel out the entire orbital velocity of the Earth, which takes roughly twice as much delta-vee as would be required to throw whatever it is ''out of the solar system'', which we have so far only managed to do by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravity_assist stealing momentum from Jupiter.]] In fact, if you had the necessary rocket engine, it would probably be easier, simpler, and cheaper to [[WeaponizedExhaust use it as a blowtorch]].[[note]]... if you've got a rocket engine capable of heating to 15 million kelvins, applying 250 billion bar of pressure, and maintaining that output for billions of years, in which case congratulations are in order [[/note]] (Between those two extremes, you could drop it to Earth from orbit without a heat shield.)
