** She uses it again later during her match against [[spoiler: Einhart. Her "Spinning Break" technique not only ''catches'' it, but allows her to throw it ''back'' hard enough to completely annihilate Goliath in one hit.]]

* ''{{Compiler}}'': In one story of this manga from KiaAsamiya, a humanoid robot appears that is a blatant ShoutOut to ''Anime/MazingerZ''. It has ALL its weapons (EyeBeams, ChestBlaster, missiles stored inside its midsection...), including a RocketPunch ([[AffectionateParody and even a Rocket Boot]]).

* One of Vash's opponents in an early episode of ''{{Trigun}}'' has a rocket punch attack: Gofsef Nebraska, a 23 feels-tall cyborg mutant whose dad rides on his shoulder. His fist has a retractable cord, enabling him to bring it back and shoot it repeatedly. Vash takes it all in stride, though. He taunts the brute after one attack by scrawling graffiti onto the fist. He then proves his dominance by deflecting the fist in mid-flight by firing five precise shots at it. The last bullet of [[RevolversAreJustBetter his gun]]? ''That'' went [[ImprobableAimingSkills straight into the hole the cord came out of]].

* Lugnut from ''TransformersAnimated'' possesses a rather different kind of Rocket Punch, in which jet engines attached to his forearm propel his explosive-tipped (and still attached) fist into the ground at supersonic speed. The result is an enormous explosion of kinetic force that can level a city block. Bulkhead counters this by triggering the explosive prematurely with his wrecking ball. [[CrazyAwesome Wreck-Gar just used a high-five]].

* As a nod to the interchangeability of the original toys, IDW's version of [[ComicBook/MicronautsIDW Baron Karza]] is capable of launching his hands and fingers as missiles.

* Parodied in ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''. In the segment of ''Teach Me, Miss Litchi!'', Kokonoe installed a RocketPunch in Iron Tager (it's not part of his actual moveset). However, she's not satisfied with the result and was thinking to move it somewhere else. Maybe on his chest... or his -- '''GIGANTIC [[FreudWasRight TAGER!!!!]]'''

* The 4th edition of the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' setting {{Eberron}} has this. A Paragon Path for Artificers called the Self-Forged starts by replacing a hand with a {{Magitek}} replacement called a [[PowerFist Battlefist]]. The ultimate "spell" for the Path allows the Artificer to shoot the Battlefist away on a chain of energy, allowing them to continue to control it even while it's detached from their body.
