* Episode 4 of ''Anime/SpacePatrolLuluco'' has a variation. The character's gun forms acted as the rockets for a space shuttle, but rather than shooting downwards, they each shot upwards and fell back to earth.

* ''[[VideoGame/NoTimeToExplain No Time To Explain]]'' has its entire gameplay built around this -- you have to use the recoil from your huge laser to RocketJump to platforms.

* ''Videogame/{{Hedgewars}}'': The Sine Gun has some crazy recoil that can easily get you over an obstacle when shot downward. Just don't shoot it straight up or you'll [[UpToEleven take fall damage from the acceleration]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/WarThunder'', the recoil effect is too small to matter while in flight, but when ''landing'' it can be exploited to slow down slightly faster. Obviously not a realistic thing to do, but since the game doesn't model in the friendly personnel at airfields who would be in your line of fire there's no downside to it.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}: Imperishable Night'', Marisa's Last Word spellcard "Blazing Star" is her using [[KamehameHadoken Master]] [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer Spark]] in this fashion. While shooting at you.

* One episode of ''DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines'' has Dirk's plane nosediving to the ground. He manages to brake his descent by firing his plane's machine gun continuously.
** A similar gag once happened in ''WackyRaces'' where the Anthill Mob fired machine guns for a speed boost.

->''"To put it another way: If I mounted a GAU-8 on my car, put the car in neutral, and started firing backward from a standstill, I would be breaking the interstate speed limit in less than ''three seconds''."''

* In ''VideoGame/{{Spelunky}}'' it's possible, when timed right, to use the shotgun's recoil to boost the height of your jump to go up three spaces instead of two. With the spring boots, it's then possible to go jump up to four spaces. This can be very useful for saving ropes when you do not have the climbing gloves or jetpack.
