* 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.

* One of [[BigBad Zeus]]' henchmen in ''Film/TurboKid'' has a robotic fist he can throws at his opponents. Unfortunately for him, [[TheHero the Kid]]'s [[PowerFist Turbo Fist]] is a much better weapon and he is vaporized before his fist can even reach the Kid.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'' has a tongue-firmly-in-cheek variation performed by Zadornov, where he makes a peace sign and shoots it while shouting "Rocket peace!" The theme of the game is nuclear deterrence (peace gained through rockets), so this is either [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic symbolic]] or just one of Kojima's references to the anime he watched as a kid. [[TakeAThirdOption Or both]].
** The RocketPunch returns in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', now for Big Boss to control and take out foes from a distance. He even shouts "Roketto Paunch!" when launching it, at least in the Japanese version.
