* Used in ''Fanfic/ADream''. As part of Valiant's satellite program, he's launched several station capable of carrying out kinetic bombardment of nearly any location in Equestria. So far it's only been used against [[KnightTemplar Gabby]], which while it failed to kill her, it completely destroyed the landscape and is the only thing to even come close to disabling [[DamageProofVehicle Tin Mare.]]

* ''Videogame/SeventhDragon III: code VFD'' has one that the Agent class can gain access to by completing a sidequest. Firing it causes massive damage to all enemies and has a high chance of inflicting Hacked status.

** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Horizon Project Horizon]] (a 1950s study of the feasibility of a US scientific/military lunar expedition) included a proposal to install nuclear missiles on the Moon to serve as an invulnerable strategic reserve (the base would have been defended with [[SuperiorFirepowerTacticalNukes Davy Crockett low-yield nukes]] and [[LandMineGoesClick claymore mines]] specially designed to puncture spacesuits). The proposal died quietly after someone pointed out [[RealityEnsues the missiles would take at least three days to reach Earth]], [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt by which time the war would be over]].

* Predating even that is the ''VideoGame/MissileCommand''-inspired ''Ashes to Ashes'' from the early {{Macintosh}} days, which had a satellite-based ion cannon as one of the three weapons in the player's defensive arsenal. It strikes the target area instantly and has unlimited uses, but has a 2 second cool-down delay and a smaller blast radius than ground-based missiles. Still, skilled players can survive for quite a while after exhausting their other weapons.

A variation of the WaveMotionGun, Kill Sats have the added advantage that you don't need to be anywhere near either the weapon or the target. Instead, you can fire it from the safety of your headquarters: your satellite will move into position and unleash a shiny descending PillarOfLight on your unsuspecting target. Power/accuracy on Kill Sats vary, ranging from "lone vehicle" to "entire building" to (rarely) "town or small city." [[EarthShatteringKaboom Planet busters]] are another category entirely, as firing them remotely from ''anywhere'' on the surface is inadvisable.

* ''VideoGame/DigimonWorld 3'' has [[spoiler:Gunslinger]], the location [[spoiler:and last boss, sort of]], of the final boss battle for the main part of the game. It's infested with powerful Digimon and at the end [[spoiler:Snatchmon merges itself with its master and then with the station itself]]. Then it plans to merge with [[spoiler:Earth to make the most powerful Digimon EVER to have existed]].

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Machines}} Machines: Wired For War]]'' has a ion cannon that can wipe out almost anything in its (small) blast radius and set fire to anything just out side it. Taking over an enemy base can gain access to their ion cannon.

* SOL in ''Manga/{{Akira}}''. Used to sucker punch a rampaging [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity Tetsuo]], [[AnArmAndALeg incinerating his right arm in one shot]]. The reason it didn't get a second chance varies: in the anime, Tetsuo flies up and crushes it while the military is still recalibrating; in the manga, [[VillainExitStageLeft he just runs away and goes into hiding]][[spoiler:, leaving the satellite available for the Colonel to use against him in the final battle.]]
