* Part of Rocket's plan of escaping the Kyln in ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' involves disabling the artificial gravity everywhere in the prison ''but'' the watchtower in the center, where the heros have broken into. Cue Kyln guards with rocket launchers flailing helplessly.

** Harry uses a similar tactic against [[spoiler: Cait Sith]] in Literature/ColdDays, when the latter rebounds from jumping on him, Harry uses that split second of simple physics to magically shove him out a window.

* In ''Literature/PayMeBug'', part of the drill for repelling boarders on the ''Fool's Errand'' is to switch the gravity on and off at predetermined intervals. Since the boarders wouldn't know the schedule, they wouldn't be prepared for the sudden shifts.

** 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).

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'' features a fight between Mister Terrific and TheFlash who's had a FreakyFridayFlip with 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.

* ''{{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.
