** In the ''Anime/YuGiOh'' Virtual Nightmare filler arc, Gozaboro Kaiba's former right-hand man [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Lecter]] who takes the form of Jinzo summons, a monster called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Satellite Cannon]], which is quite a pain to Kaiba until he finally summons BEWD and destroys it. (Lector hints in the original version that Gozaburo was working on a real version of a Kill Sat before he was ousted from his position.)

Added DiffLines:

* In the latest Doomsday Heist update for ''Videogame/GrandTheftAutoV'', an orbital cannon has now been made available as a purchasable utility for your high-tech facility, enabling you to use it as surveillance across all corners of the map, or as its function as an instant kill weapon by firing on your target from high above. But, you will need $500k to fire a manual shot, and, if you so choose to leave the reigns to the game, pay $750k to autotarget your choice of players in the lobby and let the cannon do the rest for you.

* 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.]]

** [[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.
