* ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' reveals the "verteron array" on Mars. Although primarily used to divert comets to the Martian ice caps, it can also fire a powerful beam of death anywhere in the solar system...which turns out to be a bad thing when an AbsoluteXenophobe seizes control of it.

* ''Manga/DragonBallZ'' heroes nearly all have one, to the point where they aren't even considered remarkable. The Kamehameha is known to several of the characters, for instance. Vegita has his Garlic Cannon. But the ultimate attack in the series is the Spirit Bomb, which Goku learned from North Kai. It's the only thing that can stop Kid Buu, the ultimate enemy of the series.

The Kamehameha is known put their mind to it, unleash beam attacks of planet-shattering proportions. Even the early days had Roshi and Piccolo casually blowing up ''Earth's moon'' to stop a rampaging Oozaru, and characters get several of the characters, for instance. Vegita has his Garlic Cannon. But the ultimate attack in the series is the Spirit Bomb, which Goku learned thousand times stronger from North Kai. It's there. By the only thing Cell Saga, we had beam attacks that can stop Kid Buu, the ultimate enemy of the series.were [[DistantReactionShot visible from space]], with Vegeta's Final Flash being particularly spectacular.

* ''{{Guyver}}'' has the Giga-Smasher, a plasma cannon whose range, beam width, and power appear approximately equivalent to a Macross Cannon. It's a [[spoiler:one shot weapon only, however. It can only be used one time by one of the Guyver's equipping the Gigantic upgrade; One shot with the Giga-Smasher uses up the upgrade's energy reserves and it automatically detaches from the user, leaving them with just their normal Megasmasher and an assload of fatigue.]]

* The Shock Beam cannon in ''BattleshipsForever'' adds a damage multiplier to the base damage when fully charged, causing it to deal +150% damage while making the beam much larger.

* The Brahmastra from ''AsurasWrath'' [[spoiler: It and the Karma fortress it resides in are powered by human souls.]] It ends up being fired twice: Once at the intended target, Gohma Vlitra, a continent-sized monster that the Guardian Generals/Seven Deities have been fighting for eternity. [[spoiler: All it does is piss Vlitra off.]] Later, it gets fired at [[spoiler: Berserker Asura, who by this point is singlehandedly destroying the Deities' entire fleet]]. It manages to [[spoiler: damage Berserker Asura's extra arms and force him into the less overly destructive but still horribly powerful Wrath form.]]

* The "Death Blossom" from ''TheLastStarfighter'' is more of a MacrossMissileMassacre combined with a bit of BeamSpam rather than a Wave Motion Gun, but it has the same energy-draining drawback.

* Any variant of Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'s Breath Weapon, be it Red, Golden or [[ThisIsADrill Spiraling Red]] all count as such. When things are hit with them, they die almost universally, and they often rearrange the landscape. Godzilla's usually occur after a brief chargeup period.
