* In ''ComicBook/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'', Galvatron flies by firing his ArmCannon behind him. Unlike many versions of the franchise, most Decepticons can't fly in robot mode unless they also have a flying alt-mode.

* The Bazooka in ''VideoGame/{{Wuppo}}'' will push you slightly in the other direction when a charged shot is fired. The same goes for ''every'' shot fired by the Newspaper Cannon.

* In an inversion, the recoil from a GAU-8 Avenger on the A-10 Thunderbolt is severe enough to give the plane a noticeable drop in speed with each burst, though never quite enough to actually stall it.[[note]]Indeed the GAU-8 at full auto produces 5 tons of force as recoil, one of the A-10's engines produces 4 tons, if the A-10 only had 1 engine or had 2 guns, the entire thing would be flying backwards if you used all 4 of them at once[[/note]] This is actually helpful, since at slower speeds it's easier to aim (and the A-10's [[MightyGlacier not about to outrun anything at the best of times anyway]]).

* Squall in [[DissidiaFinalFantasy Dissidia: Final Fantasy]] utilizes this in some of his attacks. They vary from giving a heel drop more kick, to repeatedly using the recoil to 'push' his weapon out of his opponent only to quickly thrust it back in, to propelling him forward at blistering speeds.

** Experiments have been conducted on the feasibility of using railguns or mass drivers as spaceship propulsion, which essentially would make your entire spaceship a backwards-firing gun.

** Experiments have been conducted on the feasibility of using railguns or mass drivers as spaceship propulsion, which essentially would make your entire spaceship a backwards-firing gun. The OrionDrive is similar in that it uses ''nuclear bombs'' [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_pulse_propulsion to provide thrust]]. Obviously, it works best in a vacuum away from any livable planets.

* ''VideoGame/{{Broforce}}'' has both [[Film/Terminator2JudgementDay The Brominator]] and [[Film/TheExpendables Bro Caesar]] with their miniguns that propel them the ''opposite way they're facing'' and their Special Command, Minigun Leap, launches them with the recoil to slam down onto anyone stupid enough to be in their way.

* In ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', one of the Scout's unlockable weapons is a shotgun with such ridiculous recoil that the player is also knocked back when it's fired in mid-air.
** Said weapon, when aimed downwards, can provide a third jump on top of the Scout's usual double-jump.
** Strangely, the Pyro's regular flamethrower alternate fire, the airblast, can reflect projectiles (including arrows!) but does not push the player around, only enemies. This is probably because the Pyro would get 10 extra jumps if the airblast did have recoil.
** Although, with proper timing, the Pyro is able to use the airblast to RocketJump off enemy rockets.

* In ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet'', Milla Basset's charged cube beam attack has significant recoil. Speedrunners have figured out how to turn that recoil into motive force to accelerate Milla to the point where she can actually keep pace with Lilac and Carol.

* 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.
