* The town of Series/TerraNova is heavily dependent on meteoric iron, and rebel forces control the quarry. Digging for other deposits would somewhat defeat the purpose of the mission, which is to avoid the industrialization that ruined the future.

* In ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'', the best way to tear large chunks out of [[TheFairFolk the True Fae]] is to use hand-forged (that is, not machine-processed) "cold iron." The "Rites of Spring" splatbook defines cold iron specifically as iron which has never been heated to the point of malleability by any human agency, but has instead been beaten into shape by ''pure brute force.'' Overlooking the general improbability of making anything more refined than a club or a rough mace by this method, the book outright states that your best hope of ''ever'' obtaining cold iron is to get your hands on meteoric iron, since melting down normal iron ore is pretty much the only way to get iron out of it in the first place.

* ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' mentions that this is one of the guesses about what "cold iron" was supposed to be and lets you use it if you want... but it defaults to the handling that it's just a descriptive term for regular iron, like one might say "cold steel."

* Played with in ''VideoGame/Diablo3'', where the pieces of archangel Tyreal's broken sword fall to Earth as meteorites after he is cast out of the High Heavens. This makes it technically made from meteoric iron when it is reforged again, although there's no suggestion that this gives it any additional powers.

Subtrope of FantasyMetals. See also {{Unobtanium}}, which it often is, and MagicMeteor. May be interchangeable with ColdIron or a separate kind of DepletedPhlebotinumShells.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', you can stumble upon a meteor ([[{{Superman}} on whose crater a child was previously found by a woman named Martha and her husband]]) and have Levi Dryden's brother make a sword from it after the events at Warden's Peak. The appropriately dubbed "Starfang" is one of the strongest swords in the game.

* ''Videogame/DungeonsOfDredmor'': The Embossed Serpentine armor set qualifies, being made of "mysterious star-metal" that fell from the skies one day. Well, parts of it; the rest is apparently just a really good imitation of it. Either way, it's some of the best heavy armor in the game. The game also makes some light fun of the idea, as it takes a special mindset to find the metal of a fallen star and think "those would make some nice pants".

* Excalibur's brother sword, Clarent, which was the [[PublicDomainArtifact Sword in the Stone]] in ''The Alliterative Morte Arthure'', is another example in some sources. A meteor, in the shape of a red dragon's head - a red dragon being the symbol of Briton, and especially Wales - fell to earth, landing just as Uther, father of Arthur, was given command of an army after its commander had fallen. Merlin took this as a sign that Uther was destined to be King of All the Britons, had the meteor's metal forged into the magic sword, Clarent, and gave Uther the surname, Pendragon (Welsh for ''dragon head'').
