* ''Anime/MazingerZ'' is, of course, the [[TropeMakers Trope Maker]] here, including it in almost all the incarnations of the ''Mazinger'' franchise. Depending on the iteration, the arm would come back on its own, or he'd have to pick it up. The standard rocket punch is eventually upgraded to the Kyoukagata Rocket Punch ("Reinforced Rocket Punch"), consisting of identical fists with stronger armor. Mazinger Z possess a technique called Daisharin Rocket Punch ("Giant Swing Rocket Punch") in which it spins its arms rapidly, building up momentum before firing off both fists in standard Rocket Punch fashion. Mazinger Z also once used a technique called "Boomerang Fist", in which the rocket punch was attached to the upper arm with a retractable chain, and the "Iron Cutter", a Rocket Punch with blades extended on the sides of the forearms.

* ''{{Medabots}}''. In the final battle against the BigBad, who is in a giant robot, Dr. Aki reveals a giant version of Metabee([[CrowningMomentOfFunny complete with a Medawatch that is the size of a belt]]) that Metabeee and several other Medabots hop in to pilot. One of the Giant Metabee's attacks? Rocket Punch. Gets [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Ikki, asking if Aki has a spare arm. Aki responds, moderately angrily, by saying "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!" before the giant arm rocket propells itself back to the Giant Metabee.

* God Ginrai in ''TransformersSuperGodMasterforce'' has one of these. Overlord has a similar weapon, but it's actually the front part of the Megajet.

** 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.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': In the remake, Unit 01 has one. Yes. Unit 01. It's a very special case involving [[GodModeSue haxmagic]] and an energy-based "replacement" arm, but it's a ''freaking rocket punch!''
** To be fair, the rocket in this case is ''Zeruel''. Still, when you can [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom launch an enemy for what has to be a couple of miles with your badass energy arm,]] no one is really looking for clarification any longer.
** Sachiel has the piston punch variant: The elbow spikes go through the arms and can be slammed into the target through the palms of the hands.
