* In ''ComicBook/GastonLagaffe'', this comes up on three occasions: once when Gaston throws around a ''superballe'' and it bounces crazily until his office is devastated (and Fantasio swallows it), once when his cat tries to grab it and goes into a frenzy, and once when he plays jokari with it.
** And once he makes a kangaroo ball-- the kind that you sit on and bounce around-- out of the same stuff that superballs are made of. The final panel reads like he died committing this stunt-- it claims that the last person to see him was a flight attendant in a plane several miles off the ground. Thankfully for him, the NegativeContinuity kicked in.

* In ''Comicbook/JudgeDredd'' stories, the miracle plastic Boing® is a spray-on substance that expands and encases the user in a very bouncy ball. It's legal to use for various games and activities (appropriately referred to as "boinging") at special facilities that cater to these interests (namely, the Palais de Boing®), but boinging outside of such facilities is very dangerous and ''highly'' illegal.
** Another Judge Dredd example is the Rubber Richochet bullets used by the Judges. Mostly used by the big JD himself to pull off 'impossible' shots. Nothing hilarious about these babies. Justified in that real life rubber bullets (intended to nonlethal) have [[http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16167715 killed]].
* The DonaldDuck comic [[http://coa.inducks.org/story.php?c=I+TL+2221-1 "Paperino contro i veggenti viola"]]. Donald Duck and Fethry Duck are secret agents with a collection of nifty gadgets, including one such a ball.
* The French comic "L'Imploseur" features one as the ultimate security system, being released inside a sealed tunnel so it would eventually go through everything human-soft, killing everyone on the team but the hero and his girl (and even then only because they found the exit in time).

** ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}' demonstrated that if you're bouncing the bullet off anything soft enough that it won't shatter on the first impact, by the third ricochet, it's moving so slowly that it would merely be annoying if it hit you.

* This is your weapon (other than crushing monsters with apples) in ''VideoGame/MrDo''. Especially useful because the game taken place in narrow corridors dug out by your hero, thus usually allowing you to predict the trajectory. However, you only have one "Power Ball" at your disposal and must go and retrieve it if it fails to hit a monsters.

* In an ''ArchieComics'' story where the cast are portrayed as superheroes, Evilheart (Reggie) and Pureheart (Archie) fight a baddie who has a ring that causes objects to rapidly degrade. Every weapon they fire at him, he simply destroys. To get the better of him, Evilheart tosses out a little black ball, which bounces all over the room. Because it is so quick, the villain can't hit it, and eventually his weapon runs out of juice. However, in trying to destroy the ball, the villain also destroys all his loot -- which means it can't be returned to the victims, forcing Evilheart to pay reparations.
