* In ''VideoGame/MetalFatigue'', [[TheMario Rimtech]] has access to this from the get-go. Build a [[HumongousMecha Combot]] with dual heavy missile arms, a drunk missile torso, and drunk missile legs, and you have a recipe for bombardment. Salvage homing missile arms from Neuropa and the resultant missile-spam Combot will have no shortage of explosives to dole out. For<script id="gpt-impl-0.008477282028347132" src="http://partner.googleadservices.com/gpt/pubads_impl_94.js"></script> bonus points, the 'drunk' missiles will bob back and forth in the spirit of this trope and {{Roboteching}}.

* In ''Comicbook/WarWorld'' alien overlord Mongul tries this tactic to destroy both Franchise/{{Superman}} and Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}.
-->The merest thought crosses Mongul's jaundiced brow, and a savage swarm of missiles streaks skyward at his command even as floating macro-laser cannons cross the star-swept heavens with devastating beams of fire...

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/TheGamer'': one of Jee-Han's first spells is ''Mana Arrow'', which he eventually manages to upgrade to shoot multiple arrows at the same time that spin on its axis for greater penetration. Eventually, he upgrades it to ''Infinite Spinning Mana Arrows'', which continuously creates and shoots arrows until it is dispelled or its user runs out of MP. And Jee-Han's MP regeneration heavily outdoes the spell's cost.

Added DiffLines:

* Briefly used by ''WesternAnimation/DuckDodgers'', to blow a hole in world made entirely of a giant aquarium, housing warring [[FishPeople shark and dolphin people]], [[InsaneTrollLogic believing that would somehow lead to peace.]] Really. Fortunately this fails miserably, unfortunately, Dodgers then opts just to ram his ship though the tank... Well, it did get the two civilizations of fish people to set their differences aside.

* War Machine's War Destroyer super move in the ''CapcomVsWhatever'' games is a barrage of missiles (the main difference between him and Iron Man is that the former's weapons are mostly ballistic while the latter's are energy-based).

* The term [=MIRV=] stands for "Multiple Independently-targetable Reentry Vehicle" and is used to describe short-range to ICBM class nuclear-tipped missiles that contain a single first stage with multiple warheads that will detach after launch, shortly before impact. (Reportedly the Trident II is capable of carrying at least 12 warheads per missile.) The contrails in MissileCommand that would split up to hit multiple targets? This is the real life weapon on which they were based.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Celestus}}'', missile launchers are the first and thus cheapest ground-to-space weapon. This means that even a moderatly-well defended planet will have '''millions''' of them.

Build a [[HumongousMecha Combot]] with dual heavy missile arms, a drunk missile torso, and drunk missile legs, and you have a recipe for bombardment.
