* The ''Lancer'' class of ''VideoGame/DistantStarRevenantFleet'' carries no weapons, but has, as it's special ability, a powerful laser cannon. It's intended to be used as a sniper.

* In the ''VideoGame/DonPachi'' series, you normally tap the fire button (or hold down the full-auto button) to fire a steady stream of bullets, but holding down the fire button instead fires a laser beam that inflicts continuous damage to whatever it touches and surrounds your ship in a damage-dealing aura, at the expense of slowing your movement speed. Additionally, using the laser is required to maintain and increment your hit chain when shooting more durable targets, as using your regular shot will cause your chain timer to empty out instead.

** ''Film/ANewHope'' and ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' have the Death Star's Superlaser, which is capable of [[EarthShatteringKaboom reducing a planet to debris]] in mere seconds. Though the first Death Star only used it to destroy planets, the second was refined to be able to fire on capital ships.

* Music/MarcyPlayground actually have a song called "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owWjcZFWvek Wave Motion Gun]]" from their sophomore album ''Shapeshifter'' (it's actually about heroin and depression, but ''does'' have a reference to ''Anime/StarBlazers'' aka ''Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato'').

This sort of weapon is frequently mounted on a KillSat. If it's built into a famous real-world location, then it's a WeaponizedLandmark. If the bad guys have one, it's a DeathRay. Can lead to [[IncrediblyLamePun Wave Motion Fun]][[note]]you might call that a [[OverlyLongGag Wave Motion Pun]][[/note]]. When it's built into the ship so that it's always pointed straight forward, it's a FixedForwardFacingWeapon. KamehameHadoken is the [[KiAttacks ki]] version of this trope. Facing one of these on foot often involves a CorridorCubbyholeRun.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' moves are more likely to be portrayed as this in that anime than in the games. Hyper Beam is usually the go-to example, but most beam-style attacks can get big enough to be this. A notable example Ash's Goodra, who could tank enough damage to turn bide into this when it didn't just use Dragon Pulse. The Lugia in the second movie uses [[SignatureMove Aeroblast]] to great effect as well, one-shotting all three Legendary Birds without so much as a glancing blow.



** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' brings us the Mist Cannon, which is deployed at the end of the game against [[spoiler:the Rebel fleet, to devastating effect, as it is capable of destroying ANY SHIP IN ONE SHOT.]]
