* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie2017'' this happens to [[spoiler:the Storm King after he tries to throw a petrification bomb at the Mane Six, but Tempest Shadow [[TakingTheBullet takes the bullet]], resulting in the bomb hitting the Storm King, [[TakenForGranite turning him to stone]]. He then falls off the balcony of Canterlot Castle and shatters into pieces. During the CreativeClosingCredits, we see his henchmen [[BlackComedy trying (and failing) to reassemble him]].

* In one story of the ComicBook/LegionofSuperheroes, the villain turns Colossal Boy's parents to glass. The process is reversible, but as he demonstrates on an incompetent underling, glass is fragile.

In real life, this wouldn't happen (at least with freezing). Fleshy creatures are held together by fibrous connective tissues and are pretty darn dense. When frozen solid, we don't break easily, and definitely don't shatter. Drop a frozen corpse and it will at most, crack but stay together. If it doesn't just bounce. This is only possible in RealLife with fruits, which tend to be much less fibrous than other living things. This is a serious case of [[IncrediblyLamePun Rule of Cool]].

* The commercial for ''VideoGame/{{Wizard 101}}'''s Zafaria expansion features [[BigBad Morganthe]] nonchalantly freezing a lion just before he runs her though with a spear. [[BreakingTheFourthWall She taunts the viewer]] as she turns her new statue into shaved ice.

** The ice version also happens in the old ''Anime/DragonBall''. When Goku fights the Red Ribbon at Muscle Tower he fights a huge monster called Buyon. The monster is very rubber-y and impervious to Goku's hits, until he manages to smash a wall and have him be frozen by the outside cold. At that point, one hit is enough to shatter it.

* In ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', this theoretically ''can'' be done to Discord while he's [[TakenForGranite imprisoned in his statue]], but the story explains why it can't be ''safely'' done. Namely, [[TopGod Havoc]], Discord's father, gave his children a 'failsafe' so that if anyone except another member of their family kills them, they can persist in the mortal world in spirit form rather than go back to the spirit world. So while shattering Discord would be fatal, it would ultimately just set him free and allow him to [[DemonicPossession possess someone else]]. [[spoiler:This happened when Galaxia, unknowing of this, killed Discord by shattering after the Paradise Ponies managed to defeat him, allowing him to possess Wind Whistler, who's body he's currently using.]] Thus the only way to safely shatter Discord would be if someone of his family did it, and the only available option would be his [[SemiDivine daughter Fluttercruel]]. [[spoiler:This becomes mute as Diamond Tiara, as part of her DealWithTheDevil with him shattered him and they're now SharingABody. Also, following the Rumors Arc, [[OutOfContinues the Draconequi Elders take away the failsafe]] meaning if it happens to Discord again, he ''will'' die.]]

* Done infamously in ''Film/JasonX''. While one of the doctor's assistants is about to dissect Jason, the dormant wraith then comes back to life, and forces her face into a sink of liquid nitrogen, following up with a smash on the counter. It was so gruesome, that when the ''LiveActionTV/{{Mythbusters}}'' tested it, they weren't allowed to show the footage, instead going for a cartoon reenactment.

His arch-enemy, a hard-ass older agent, convinces him to go back into hibernation since neither of them understand the world as it is today. Then he punches the hippie's frozen head, shattering it into hundreds of pieces and collecting some of it so he can use it for his next drink.

** The Dark Eldar also have access to a piece of arcane wargear called the Shattershard, a piece of a destroyed transdimentional portal that has been turned into a deadly weapon.
