* ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'': All of [[HandicappedBadass Ibaraki-dōji]]'s skills are this. That, and coupled with the fact that he's abnormally strong compared to other attainable ''shikigami'', he can easily become a GameBreaker for players fortunate enough to summon him.

* In [[IronKingdoms Warmachine/Hordes]], some attacks can cause splash damage. When such an attack is aimed at a main target, it'll do full damage to said main target and reduced damage (called blast damage) to everything else in range if the attack hits, but if the attack misses, the AOE will fly off elsewhere while still doing blast damage. This fly-off-elsewhere rule [[SplashDamageAbuse can be used to "extend" the distance of the attack]].

This quality usually makes a unit very valuable in RTS games, where even [[DeathOfAThousandCuts very weak attacks]] can be highly effective in the right circumstances or in sufficient numbers, because a particular unit or tactic involves tightly bunching up a cluster of units, meaning that even a weak attack does that damage to ''every single unit in the cluster'', making it a rather powerful attack. Examples of such weapons usually have an ArbitraryMinimumRange, so that you don't hit yourself or your own men.

men. A limiting factor of Splash Damage is the fact that the commonly explosive nature of this trope normally causes friendly fire if allies are within the area thus mandating strategic positioning and planning if one hopes to prevent loss or injuries of friendly units. As such it this trope is rarely combined with FriendlyFireproof, although it is usually a tremendous boon when the two do meet.

* High-Explosive shells in ''WorldOfTanks'' do splash damage, though most tanks use ammunition with a very short radius of effect and relatively low damage. [=SPGs=] (Self-Propelled Guns aka artillery), however, can do significant damage with a near miss and even knock out crew members or damage tank modules.

* Explosive weapons in ''VideoGame/{{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.

* ''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.
