** The episode [[Recap.DoctorWhoS31E5FleshAndStone "Flesh and Stone"]] is mostly set in a crashed, now-tipped-on-its-front spaceship where the Doctor and friends are trying to outrun what is effectively an army of Weeping Angels (the pseudo-moving statues that first appeared in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E10Blink "Blink"]]) ''and'' deal with a crack in time that erases its victims. The Angels [[HoistByHisOwnPetard ultimately defeat themselves]] by draining the ship of all its power, causing the gravity to fail so they all fall into the crack and, as such, [[{{Retgone}} never existed in the first place]].

* An episode of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' deals with a character who comes from a planet with very little gravity who must get around in a wheelchair, because medical treatment to acclimate her to normal gravity would make it impossible for her to return to her homeworld for extended periods. In the climax, she's able to save a captured shuttle crew by turning off the gravity and kicking the hostage-takers' asses in zero-g.
* ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' presents the opposite approach to this trope, in an episode where a dangerous alien is defeated by ''increasing'' the gravity over the deck plates it was walking on. This causes the reptilian biped to heave onto the floor and remain trapped there for a few seconds before it was shot to death.
** The same trick is used in an early ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'' episode. A group of teenagers obsessed with killing all [[NietzscheWannabe Nietzscheans]] and Magog have taken over the bridge of the ''Andromeda Ascendant''. Harper has just finished building an android body for Rommie, the ship's avatar. Suddenly, everyone on the bridge collapses and is unable to move. Rommie (in all her naked glory) walks out on the bridge and explains to the teens that she is God aboard the ship and can adjust ArtificialGravity as she sees fit. The only ones who can move are Tyr (being a Nietzschean) and Dylan (half-HeavyWorlder).
* ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' uses a variation of this trope. Rather than turning the ship's AntiGravity systems off, Mal and River trick a villain into going outside the ship into the Zero-G environment of outer space. One well-placed punch is enough to send him flying endlessly into space with no way of getting back.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'' features a fight between Mister Terrific and TheFlash who's had a FreakyFridayFlip with ComicBook/LexLuthor. As Mister Terrific's only superpower is that he's really smart, this proves problematic, and he evens the fights by turning off the Watchtower's ArtificialGravity. Flash Luthor is non-plussed, and used his SuperSpeed to turn his arms into propellers. Mr. Terrific responds by turning the ArtificialGravity back ''on'', causing Flash Luthor to plummet painfully to the ground, getting knocked out in the process.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries'': In "The Jihad", Kirk and Spock join a team of alien specialists to retrieve The Soul of Skor, an artifact stolen from an avian race called the Skor, to prevent the Skor from attacking the galaxy in retribution. A Skor member, Tchar, turned out to be TheMole, having stolen the Soul to bring about a Skor jihad. He then shut off the gravity in the temple, believing that, as a flyer, this would give him an edge over the others in combat. Unfortunately for him...

'''Spock''': Last week, with you, Captain. (Cue OhCrap look on Tchar's face.)

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' novel ''Literature/{{Changes}}'', Harry uses a specialized form of earth magic to temporarily create this. His main goal is the extremely crushing, localized gravity that results when the spell ends. It works very well.

* Inverted in SergeyLukyanenko's ''[[Literature/TheStarsAreColdToys Star Shadow]]''. When Colonel Danilov decides to take the Geometer scoutship back to Earth over Pyotr's objections, Danilov tries to fight him for it. Being a war vet and an experienced cosmonaut, trained in zero-g fighting, he forgets that the Geometer ship has ArtificialGravity and tries to fight as if he's in zero-g (he strikes and gently pushes off the floor to float to the ceiling). Pyotr, having gotten used to the Geometer ship, fights as if he's on solid ground and wins. Then Danilov's partner hits him with a StunGun.

A special kind of attack a character uses when they're in space and realize something. With gravity, this week's villain is a total BadAss who can take out all of the heroes singlehandedly. But turn the gravity off, and all of a sudden he's a flailing ninny helplessly floating around in the air. It would seem that in this situation knowing eighty forms of martial arts isn't that useful a skill.

Still, as gimmicks go, it's a pretty cool one. After all, where else can you see people fighting each other IsaacNewton style? A GravityMaster may have this as an ability, thus not needing to be in space in the first place to use it.

* In HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality, Harry has to participate into an underwater battle. He has read EndersGame. Underwater is not quite the same as no-gravity, but someone who's "experienced" in the latter may successfully adapt quite a few tactics into the former, especially against an entirely unprepared opponent.
