Added DiffLines:

* In ''Videogame/PlanetSide 1'', each empire has access to an orbital laser that can annihilate anything outdoors after a short charge-up period. If you hear the distinctive whine of the strike and you aren't in a vehicle or already at a dead sprint, YouAreAlreadyDead. Orbital Strikes can be called in by players that have reached Command Rank 4, and the blast radius gets upgraded at Rank 5.

** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-923 SCP-923]] is a ''Memetic'' Kill Sat. It makes people AxCrazy, and the effect 'splashes' at higher settings. It reports a maximum output of 238, which gets converted to 'keter' intensity - and apparently causes effects that ''screw with reality itself''. More worryingly, using it causes wear (and results in lower-intensity settings slowly becoming unavailable). What ''really'' worries the Foundation, though, is [[spoiler: the fact that the Kill Sat says it was built to help protect a site that they never built.]]

* ''Film/GIJoeRetaliation'': Cobra's Zeus satellites [[spoiler: which they use to break London like an egg.]] Want to know something scary? That appears to be a very accurate depiction of how such a system would function in reality.

* ''Film/GIJoeRetaliation'': Cobra's Zeus satellites [[spoiler: which they use to break London like an egg.]] Want to know something scary? That appears to be a very accurate depiction of how such a system would function in reality. The only mistake they make is when they say that the satellite "drops" its rods instead of launching them. If it merely dropped the rods, then they'd continue orbiting with the satellite instead of falling to the surface. The rods have to launched on a tangential velocity in order to reduce their orbit and get them to fall where intended.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', Hyperion's Helios Space Station is outfitted with a moonshot cannon: originally designed to fire supplies to the moon of Elpis, Handsome Jack modified it to function as an orbiting artillery cannon. In ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'', it had a laser cannon called the "Eye of Helios" [[spoiler:which weaponized an eyeball recovered from the Destroyer, the Final Boss of the original ''Borderlands'']].

* In [[WebVideo/MicrosoftSamReadsFunnyWindowsErrors Microsoft Sam and the War in the Republic of My]], the Orbital ROFL-Laser serves as one. In Episode 1, one of its tests was a DisastrousDemonstration, erroneously firing into an unintended target.

* A miniature variant (Romanov Attack Satellite) appears as a regular enemy in ''VideoGame/HeavyWeapon''. It will fire a death ray downwards, which will [[OneHitKill instantly fry your tank if it hits]], regardless of your shielding. To avoid such a fate, you have to shoot at it to push it away from you. It's also the game's signature enemy.

It's also the game's signature enemy. Uniquely for a Kill Sat, it doesn't appear to be travelling in space; rather, the satellite apparently travels through the atmosphere at similar heights to other Red Star aircraft, which raises questions on exactly how it works and if it's even a "satellite", given that a ''tank'' can shoot it down.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* In ''Manga/{{AssassinationClassroom}}'' goverment build orbital laser, armed with a laser, specifically desighned to kill Koro-sensei. [[spoiler:And when he manages to escape that, they trap him in the forcefield, so next one would kill him for sure, and temporarily confine his students, just in case they decide to sabotage something in order to break him out.]]
