** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' has the Experimental MIRV, which qualifies despite only firing 8 missiles. Why, you ask? Each missile contains a nuclear warhead. Certain areas such as Takoma Park have switches that launch missile barrages, and the KillSat in ''Broken Steel'' also fires these.

*** A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mNWybex0u4 comical glitch]] in ''Online'' caused the Quickdraw (otherwise more of a brawler or cavalry 'Mech) to turn into a missile-slinging monstrosity until they gave it a hotfix. Yes, it is indeed vomiting out an entire ton of missile ammo in one salvo, from a single launcher. It's every bit as broken and funny as it sounds.

** It should be noted that with the evolution of air wings, the US Navy can perform a creditable imitation of the above Soviet strategy with their carrier air wings. A Super Hornet can carry two antiship missiles alongside drop tanks and targeting/ECM pods, while the upcoming F-35C can also carry two such missiles in its weapons bays. Considering that carriers carry forty-eight such fighters as standard, also carry a few jammer aircraft, and add in upcoming antiship Tomahawks and VLS-launched antiship missiles, and any enemy surface forces are in for a very bad time.



** It is worth noting that the majority of missiles carried in VLS systems on US ships are actually AntiAir missiles meant to defend the fleet from air or missile attack. That said, the Navy recently announced that they had upgraded the system to launch the Standard AntiAir missiles in an anti-shipping role. Effectively, this means that any enemies within 50 miles or so would face a barrage of dozens of supersonic missiles. While such missiles have relatively small warheads, modern warships tend to be relatively unarmored.

* In ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'', many enemy ships and several types of enemy [[AMechByAnyOtherName Ryders]] are armed with a limited supply of missiles and more powerful rockets. Battles will often begin with the entire enemy force firing all their missiles at once in an effort to overwhelm your teamís flak guns. This can be countered by bunching up your units to create overlapping fields of flak, but it becomes less effective late in the game when the enemy starts deploying Support Ryders that can [[PointDefenseless shut off a unitís flak guns for one turn]]. Your team can also invoke this trope, but in a more limited fashion as only three of your seven units are armed with missiles (and only one of them, the Sunrider, gets access to rockets).
** The second game makes it more dangerous to bunch up by introducing the PACT Destroyer, an enemy unit whose missiles do splash damage upon reaching their target.

* In the ''LightNovel/SuzumiyaHaruhi'' anime, Kyon does this with a bunch of fireworks from his bike, proving that even he is willing to do something stupidly dangerous for the sake of a ShoutOut. It is also a reference of how Itano created this trope in the first place; see the first example filed under Real Life.

** In the Pilot, two Cylon Raiders engage a full squadron of Vipers; after disabling the squadron, the two Raiders pulled an MMM, firing enough missiles to wipe out the 20 (24?) Viper squadron.

* ''ShugoChara'': The variation within the form of an attack from Rima Mashiro's "Clown Drop" Character Transformation, the "Juggling Party", which does this with [[MundaneMadeAwesome juggling pins.]] While it only(?) creates six of them, whereas most times this trope appears, the target is larger/around about the same size as the offender, the X-Characters are far physically smaller than her, therefore, it indeed evens in.

* A sequence in ''SchoolRumble'' had Harima racing to deliver his finished manga manuscript to the publisher while riding a giant curry dish as a sled. A truck carrying frozen tuna crashed--and fired its cargo at him, Macross Missile Massacre style. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GD2czrUbJWM No really.]]

* ''{{Rifts}}'' has several mecha who can do this, being mounted with Mini Missile launchers that carry obscene loads of small missiles almost designed to be used in this way. Not unsurprising as Palladium Books also published an RPG based on the Robotech franchise that used the same system.
