* The Tower of Babel in ''Webcomic/{{SSDD}}'' is an odd variation in that the satellite is only a mirror designed to redirect the lasers fired from a very large, very [[FreudWasRight phallic looking]] tower. Apparently previous attempts at orbital weapons were either really large and easy to shoot down, or underpowered.

** The Death Star acts like a typical Kill Sat in the Star Wars anthology film ''Film/RogueOne'' when Tarkin orders the battlestation to fire low-power shots to destroy the Holy City on Jedha and the Imperial base on Scarif. The blasts destroy the targets and their surrounding areas while the celestial bodies remain (relatively) intact.
*** Although considering the ejecta seen spewing from Jedha, the moon may have been rendered uninhabitable by the Death Star's attack.

* Captain Vladimir, Rank 3 in ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle'', has a radio uplink to an old Soviet kill-sat. It has two functions: a rain of smaller beams that deal good damage, and the "big beam". The big one's a OneHitKill.
