* OlderThanYouThink: In ''Creater/PDQBach Live on Air'' (a radio program parody, released a decade before ''Film/StarWars''), the host, Professor Peter Schickele, takes numerous pot-shots at {{Creator/Beethoven}}, including the introductions to "New Horizons in Music Appreciation" and "Schleptet in Bb Major". Near the end, Beethoven's ghost appears (with appropriate ScareChord) and Force Chokes the Professor, trying to get him to admit that Beethoven was a good composer.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'': [[spoiler:This was something that Yakone was able to do with his bloodbending, even using it against Aang. Aang had to use the Avatar State to break out of it.]]
** Kuvira does a variation of this to [[spoiler:Varrick]], in which she metalbends his pauldrons around his neck and lifts him.

* ''[[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]]'': The "Energy Claw" subroutine allows you to do this to enemies. It also fills your energy (ammo) bar. It's technically a Mesh (Datawraith) weapon, so it would be a User-only weapon. Fitting in that universe, as digitized humans are insanely powerful in cyberspace. And yes, the game came out several years prior to Disney getting their hands on StarWars.

** In ''Film/RogueOneAStarWarsStory'', Vader initially spares Director Krennik after learning of Galen Erso's inclusion of a weakness in the Death Star reactor system, ordering him to clean up his mess. Krennik starts to get more confident and begins requesting things of Vader as the Sith Lord walks away, so Vader chokes him briefly to make a point.

** Ambassador Delenn demonstrated a weapon with a similar effect in the pilot. A ring that projects a force field to constrict the target in invisible vices, tighteting until (presumably) their rib cage crushes their heart.

** Darth Vader is the TropeCodifier, having originally done this in ''Film/ANewHope'' to Admiral Motti. This wasn't the ''first'' time he'd done it, either: In the prequels, [[spoiler: when he becomes convinced that Padme betrayed him, he chokes her]]. Using it on Adm. Kendal Ozzel in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' establishes he doesn't even need to be in the same room to do it. In the expanded universe the Force choke essentially becomes Vader's SignatureMove (see below).

* Creator/JMichaelStraczynski explored this somewhat in ''ComicBook/RisingStars'', years after he mentioned it in ''Series/BabylonFive''. In ''Rising Stars'' [[MassSuperEmpoweringEvent 113 children]] [[BizarreBabyBoom about to be born]] gain various superpowers due to something that appeared above their town and then exploded in a flash of light. Strangely enough, the only one who goes to work in some form of covert operations isn't one of the {{Flying Brick}}s, or the [[NoSell Invulnerable Man]], or even the guy who [[{{Necromancer can talk to]] [[ISeeDeadPeople the dead]], which should be a means of getting all sorts of useful information. It's the woman with the ability to move small objects with telepathy. Why? Well, for one thing, the carotid artery is a small object...
