An attack with some resemblance to a MacrossMissileMassacre. Unlike normal shrapnel, which expands out in all directions, ''reverse shrapnel'' focuses its [[StuffBlowingUp explosive]], [[PowerGlows glowy]] death into a [[BarrierWarrior protective]] [[HolyHalo ring]] or [[SphereOfPower sphere]] around the character who brought it forth, with the fragments then homing in on nearby enemies. It could be [[PowerFloats floating]] weapons, shards of PureEnergy, or other kinds of fragments.

* The antimatter-filled mines used by the [[LightNovel/CrestOfTheStars Abh]] can be utilized this way. Or they can simply be launched in a MacrossMissileMassacre.

* [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Seraphim]] from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' can surround themselves with a cloud of hovering ClockPunk robots that pummel the stuffing out of anyone who attacks them. Seraphim are TheDeterminator of the series, so anyone attacking them is going to have to brave the cloud a ''lot''.

* In {{DragonBallZ}}, Piccolo uses this against [[ArtificialHumanCyborg #17]], firing off several ki blasts until he has the cyborg trapped in the ki-ball variant of a minefield. He then controls the ki blasts to converge onto #17 all at once.

* Ice missiles in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 3'' act like this, when they freeze something sharp ice crystals from in a sphere then snap onto the target. Definitely a stock visual, but I'm not sure it has any other significance than that.
** Ice Bullets in the first ''VideoGame/ParasiteEve'' have a similar visual effect.
** Want a probable physics answer? The explosion of the missile releases the ice shards at the point of impact into a small sphere area, and then the, uh...the ''gravity'' from the missile explosions makes the shards snap to the target. So, uh, the second part is kind of flimsy, but...
*** Let's just [[HandWave say]] it's a vaccuum created from the blast.

* Kohr-Ah Marauders in ''StarControl'' send out rotating blades that can do this--but it takes some skill to position them well.
