* In Sergey Snegov's "The Men Like Gods", people use a device called "Tanev's annihilator", which can convert spacetime to matter and vice versa, ''as an engine''. While not initially being [[MildlyMilitary all that warlike]], they find the side effects of their favorite space drive [[SuperweaponSurprise quite useful]] later, when rather unfriendly aliens appear. The heroes go on to ''[[DefeatMeansFriendship befriending]]'' the crap out of said aliens, in the best [[LyricalNanoha Nanoha-style]], and then teaming up with them when the next bunch of the enemies arrived. THREE TIMES. Also, the Ramirs (ancient super-advanced civilization, which lives in the galactic core), utilises Roton Beam, which can be switched from "burn rhe planet" to "blow up the star" mode and has an interstellar range.

** In ''VideoGame/WingCommanderProphecy'' the Nephilim has the Kraken, whose plasma cannon can destroy an entire fleet in one shot. Later, it was equipped on the TCS ''Midway'' after being reverse engineered from a captured example, though the human version needed extra help to kill an entire fleet.

** The "Phase Transit Cannon" from ''VideoGame/WingCommander 2'', and the Nephilim-derived fleet killing plasma cannon equipped on the mothership of ''VideoGame/WingCommander Prophecy.''
** The main gun of the ''Behemoth'' from ''VideoGame/WingCommander III'' fits this trope perfectly--the ''Behemoth'' being a huge honkin' cannon with a ship wrapped around it.

** ''VideoGame/WingCommanderTheKilrathiSaga'':
***
The "Phase Sivar dreadnaught from the ''Wing Commander'' add-on ''The Secret Missions'' mounts a gun that creates a gravity anomaly that increases gravitational pull 137 times, which is used to destroy the Goddard colony. The focus of the add-on is hunting down and destroying the Sivar.
*** The ''Concordia'' in ''Wing Commander II'' has the Phase
Transit Cannon" Cannon, a modified version of the Sivar cannon that is less powerful than the Kilrathi weapon from ''VideoGame/WingCommander 2'', which it was derived but can be used to target warships, and is still powerful enough to destroy just about any ship with one shot. It has a tendency to not be available when most useful, however, and was removed from service shortly after the Nephilim-derived fleet killing events of ''Wing Commander II''.
*** The Behemoth from ''Wing Commander III'' is, like the Sivar cannon, a planet-killer, though using a {{Frickin Laser Beam|s}} instead of gravity manipulation to do the job. The functionality of the gun beyond its initial test firing in the Loki IV system is unknown, however, as it's destroyed before it can be put to use against Kilrah.
