* 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.)

* Discussed in ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' in regards to the Malon, whose [[PlanetOfHats hat]] is that they are always looking for a LandfillBeyondTheStars to dump radioactive antimatter waste. When asked why not dump it into a sun, the response is that doing so too often will cause the star to ''explode''. In "Juggernaut", they have to repair a Malon freighter before it can explode and destroy everything in 3 light years, and have hurl it into the nearest star as [[TimeForPlanB Plan B]].

"It seems unlikely, Mr. Potter," Professor Quirrell said dryly. "The Sun is very large, after all; I doubt the Dementor would have much effect on it. But it is not a test I would like to try, Mr. Potter, just in case."

* You technically ''can'' pull this off in VideoGame/KerbalSpaceProgram, though it's just as difficult (relatively speaking) as it would be in real life, and attempting to do so in-game will give you a good understanding of how difficult it actually is.

Have something that you need to get rid of permanently? And it can't be destroyed by ordinary means? Throw it into the Sun (or any convenient nearby star; a black hole works, too). If you have SuperStrength, just give it a good toss. Otherwise, you'll probably have to reprogram a space shuttle's coordinates, or possibly even set it to manual and make a HeroicSacrifice yourself.
