* In ''{{Lifeline}}'', you need one to get past the first boss. But first, you have to find the ingredients for it... and, more importantly, [[YouCantGetYeFlask suggest it to Rio during a cutscene conversation]]. Good luck pronouncing it in a way that the verbal recognition software understands!

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': Though you don't ever actually get to use it yourself, ryncol (the krogan liquor of choice) is apparently volatile enough that it will spontaneously combust ''on its own'' when thrown at something. In the ''Citadel DLC'', Grunt sets fire to a C-Sec car with one. Then he steals the car (while it's still on fire, yes. He'd drunk some of it y'see).

The Molotov cocktail is named for Vyacheslav Molotov, the UsefulNotes/{{Soviet|Russia Ukraine and so on}} foreign minister who is historically infamous for signing a clandestine non-aggression pact with UsefulNotes/NaziGermany in 1939; when Finland (which had been ceded to the Soviets under the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact) began to suffer Soviet bombing runs at the start of the Winter War, Molotov claimed they were not 'bombs', but food and supply drops, causing the Finnish soldiers to facetiously dub their hand-made petrol explosives 'Molotov cocktails'.
