* Possibly the most effective ones seen in a video game is ''[[VideoGame/FarCry Far Cry 2]]''. It takes place in the grasslands of Africa, and if the wind is going when you throw one... your enemies will be greeted by a literal firewall, due to the fact that the game features very realistic fire propagation. Good as a distraction, while you sneak somewhere.

* ''Literature/YoungSherlockHolmes'': In ''Death Cloud'', the thug Clem uses oil lanterns as makeshift Molotov cocktails. He uses one to burn down the warehouse, and another when he attempts to torch Matty's narrowboat (with Matty and Sherlock on board). Fittingly, Sherlock uses one at the end of the novel to trigger a dust explosion in the fort.

* ''ComicBook/JonaHex'': In "Weird Western Tales'' #31, the [=McCandless=] gang try to burn Jonah and the sheriff out of the sheriff's house with a barrage of kerosene bombs. Jonah and sheriff turn the tables of them, first of all by shooting the bottles while the gang members are holding them, and them flinging some of the remaining bombs at other gang members and shooting them while they are in the air.

* ''ComicBook/Savage'' sees the [[LaResistance British resistance]] use them on occasion. One guy wonders why his are ineffective when his buddy points out that he's made them with diesel instead.

** Note that one is effectively forcing the tank-commander to choose between killing the engine, potentially allowing you to bring something bigger (like an anti-tank rocket-launcher) to bear on the vehicle's weak spots and disable/destroy it, or to retreat and risk engine failure. Even though tanks never operate alone, the latter is still a safer bet in most cases.

Even though tanks never operate alone, the latter is still a safer bet in most cases. Even if the molotov cocktail poses little direct threat to a buttoned-up tank, the presence of them on the battlefield could force vehicle commanders to duck inside and close the hatches, reducing their ability to spot more dangerous threats.
