* Explosive weapons in ''{{X-COM}}'' games work this way, though damage from the most powerful bombs just cut off at a certain (quite large) distance rather than continuing to fade. Aside from hitting friendly units, a misplaced grenade may also destroy valuable loot or stunned prisoners or trigger ExplodingBarrels.

** Similarly, ''EmpireEarth'' employs splash damage with its siege weapons, as well as bomber planes (especially [[NukeEm atomic bombers]]) and one [[HumongousMecha the Pandora, an anti-infantry cyber]].

* ''SuperSmashBros'': along side the various [[StuffBlowingUp explosives]] there are some attacks that have hitboxes that extend farther than what you'd expect, and are capable of hitting multiple opponents. [[Franchise/{{Kirby}} King Dedede's]] and [[SuperMarioBros Yoshi's]] ground-pound moves, for example, deal damage to people standing close enough to the point of impact, not just the ones that you land directly on top of.

** ''VideoGame/{{FreeCiv}}'' has [[NukeEm Nuclear (missile) units]]. It may be [[InfinityPlusOneSword very expensive and require much research on the]] {{Tech Tree}} but its attack destroys all units within a 3x3 radius. It is most often used to clear out cities containing large numbers of defending units, but becomes even more legendary when [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome they can nuke up to 4 cities with one blast]], provided you detonate the nuke between the 4 cities and those cities are all located within a 3x3 area. To discourage [[ILoveNuclearPower liberal use of nukes]], [[VideoGameCrueltyPunishment nuclear winter will start if enough of the world has been hit by nukes]]. Its only weakness is that if your enemies have SDI defense buildings or [[CoolBoat AEGIS cruiser4s]] near your intended detonation sites, in which case your nuclear unit is shot down and disappears into thin air.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series: Has everything from small grenade launchers like the Concussion Rifle and Brute Shot, to the master of all splash damage, the Incineration Cannon, which has a blast radius that's larger than the effective range of the game's [[ShortRangeShotgun shotgun]]. Many vehicles also pack powerful explosive weapons with wide splash damage too, making splash damage a very prominent component of the series' gameplay.
* ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies'': has the Melon-pult.
* ''VideoGame/MegaMan 4'': to defeat Dr. Wily you have to use Drill Bombs. However the bombs themselves bounce off his ship. To win you must detonate the bomb before it hits so that the Splash Damage of the [[SplashDamageAbuse explosion hits his weak spot]].

* The Energy Explosion power works like this in HeroClix. It acts like a normal ranged attack, but anyone next to a target is also dealt damage equal to the number of targets the attack could have had.
