* 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.

* At the conclusion of the second ComicBook/{{Thanos}} war, {{Spider-Man}} and [[ComicBook/FantasticFour The Thing]] are wiping the floor with Thanos's henchmen. Thanos turns the tide by announcing "stage zero environment" and turning off the gravity.

* 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.

* Sort of subverted in ''EndersGame''. The characters learn special tactics for fighting in zero gravity.

* Ochako Uraraka from ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' has this as her power (called "Zero Gravity"). She can make people and objects helplessly float by simply touching them with her fingertips, removing the effects of gravity from them. A Twitter sketch from the author lampshaded this by showing her curbstomping the arc's main threat through this.
