* 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...

** ''TabletopGame/BlackCrusade'' gives us the Chaos variant; the Biomancy power adeptly named Last Breath. Instead of using telekinesis to close off the victim's wind pipe the Sorcerer in question causes the target's lungs to flood with a thick liquid that causes them to begin suffocating instantly. Like the above power, the user has no way to reverse the effect; its up to the victim to pass a Toughness test before they pass out and eventually die of oxygen deprivation.

** Anakin, Asajj Ventress and Savage Opress all frequently resort to choking their opponents through the Force. Anakin mainly uses it when his BerserkButton (his loved ones being endangered) is pushed. He also prefers it as a JacBauerInterrogationTechnique, such as in "Brain Invaders", while questioning Poggle the Lesser, who proved to be immune to his JediMindTrick. For Ventress, it seems more like a finishing and/or desparation attack, used only when she feels either confident with the outcome of the confrontation, or utterly outmatched. As for Savage, it's more-or-less his SignatureMove - he killed more people this way than with his lightsaber. He's fine with the "normal" bare-handed NeckSnap as well. Dooku also used the Force to choke his enemies a couple of times.

-> '''Admiral Motti:''' Don't try to frighten us with your sorcerer's ways, Lord Vader. ''[Vader turns and slowly walks toward him, raising his hand]'' Your sad devotion to that ancient religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you clairvoyance enough to find the Rebels' hidden fort-- ''[suddenly starts gasping for air and tugging at his collar]''\\
