** In the episode [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS2E2HeavyIsTheHead "Heavy is the Head"]], ElementalShapeshifter Carl Creel, having previously touched and been affected by the Diviner, ends his ShapeshifterSwanSong by turning to stone, although, given the nature of his powers, it's more of temporary setback than the death it would be for anyone else.
--> '''Talbot''': I thought Creel was dead.
--> '''Coulson''': He's turned to stone, but he could always do that, so I'm not sure how long it'll hold.

** Supergirl did this to her ex boyfriends with a touch, at least according to [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Adventure_Comics_389_5296.jpg this cover of ''Adventure Comics'' #389]]. [[spoiler: (In truth, this was a "joke" she used to expose a criminal who was working for Comicbook/{{Braniac}} who had hit on her. Unfortunately, while she apprehended him, Braniac got away.)]]
** In ''Supergirl vol 1 #8'', Medusa's ghost gives Kara a head full of real snakes and the curse of turning any man who looks at her to stone.

* In ''Anime/MegaManNTWarrior'' (anime), the viruses Pharaohman.exe creates can turn Net Navis to stone. He uses them to prevent people from stopping him (because in that universe, most people are absolutely useless without a Net Navi during a crisis). Net Navis turned to stone can't even log out, trapping them in the network. The effects seem to not happen instantly, however, as Sharkman.exe is able to successfully shut off the electricity (Pharaohman.exe was attempting to hijack a KillSat) before he completely turns to stone. However, it was all in vain as Pharaohman.exe manually turns the power and hijacks the satellite anyway. Thankfully, every Navi turned to stone reverts to normal after Pharaohman.exe is deleted.
** Stoneman.exe can also do this, on people in the real world, because TheDitz businesswoman, who picks him up, accidentally expressed her wish to turn her boss into a stone so he'll stop yelling at her. The result is Stoneman turning ''everyone'' in her office into the stones.

* The villain of the manga-faithful ''Manga/ViolinistOfHameln'' movie was basically Medusa with a chip on her shoulder, and she turns Hamel's companions Oboe, Sizer, and Raiel, into stone statues. Not that this deters Hamel in the least -- he goes on to use these statues as missiles to hurl at her. Unfortunately for Raiel, she gets fed up with this very quickly and smashes him into pieces when Hamel tosses him at her...
** Then, paying heed to the [[NoOntologicalInertia trope]], the petrified victims return to normal as soon as she's defeated, leading the panicked Hamel and Flute to reassemble Raiel before he returns to normal.
* The eventual BigBad of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Fate Averruncus, did this to multiple people in his first appearance in Kyoto ([[spoiler: the only one who's unaffected is Asuna, due to her AntiMagic]]). And he's threatened to do it again.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', Boa Hancock has the ability to turn people into stone with the power of her Devil Fruit, the Mero Mero no Mi. Though said people have to be at least remotely smitten with her, [[MsFanservice that's not too big]] [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman of a problem]]. The effect is perfectly reversible however, only resulting in minor memory loss to the victims (that is, if she revives them before they're shattered, such as the case with the shattered limbs of pirates at the Battle of Marineford).

* ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'':
** King turned Ban to stone as a way to bypass his immortality. Elaine turned Ban back to normal.
** Galan's special ability, Truth, makes it so anyone who lies or breaks an oath in his presence instantly turns to stone. He himself is not immune to this ability. After Galan and Escanor both swore an oath to not stop fighting each other until one of them was dead, Galan eventually panics and tries to run away when he sees how powerful Escanor is, and turns to stone as a result.
