* In ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic The Hedgehog 3]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic And Knuckles]]'', all of the stage bosses that fly by means of rockets can injure Sonic with said rockets. Few of them do so intentionally, however. Of course, TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything- if you've got a Fire Shield, the burning exhaust won't harm you.
* VideoGame/{{Vectorman}}'s foot jets that allow him to DoubleJump also allow him to deal damage to his enemies via the GoombaStomp method.
* In ''[[Sandbox/RingRunnerFlightOfTheSages Ring Runner: Flight of the Sages]]'', ships travel the universe with an Anchor drive. This drive "anchors" the ship in space, allowing the universe to spin past it. The universe spins once every 52 hours, and the danger of colliding with something at a very large exponent of light speed is so real, ships can only do this on certain "rings" in the universe, which are completely clean of matter. At the ship level, there are several ship perks that weaponize heat buildup. Venting plasma in a damaging trail, launching an explosive heatsink canister, rerouting some of the exhaust to boost weapon performance, and of course, the mother of all weapons. [[spoiler: The Anchor Cannon, which stops the motion of the projectile relative to the universe, so the universe collides with it. It only works if the target is up-spin, but even a single atom can vaporize an entire battlefield!]]

* In ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'', the ''massive'' {{Dropship}}s are capable of razing anything anywhere nearby in a nuclear hellstorm of fusion reactor exhaust when they begin to lift off the ground to head to orbit. Being too close to a dropship that's taking off or land is automatically fatal to ground units.

** More generally, the shuttle system was inherently unsafe because you couldn't stop the SRBs once lit, and you couldn't separate the orbiter from the SRBs safely while they were burning because there was no way to avoid the orbiter flying into the blowtorch exhaust plumes.

** One mod, [[LostForever now lost to time]], featured an item which was effectively a hand-carried turbojet engine. 'Firing' it caused an exhaust plume about three times as long an average drone's height to spontaneously manifest; this reliably shredded anything in front of it for the few milliseconds they were there, and invariably sent the user moving in the opposite direction hard enough to occasionally shear off limbs. [[RecoilBoost Firing downward caused the user to rise vertically]]. Firing upward caused a ''crater''.

Added DiffLines:

** The second time he used his stealth armor, Iron Man was fighting the Crimson Dynamo (Dmitri Bhukarin) and Titanium Man (the Gremlin) in Siberia during the ''Armor Wars'' storyline. Although the suit was upgraded to now permit a limited number of repulsor shots, he used them up in the battle and only succeeded in destroying the Dynamo's armor, and Titanium Man caught the weaponless Iron Man in a bear hug. Attempting to escape, Iron Man's jetboots were again weaponized, albeit unintentionally, when at full blast they set the Titanium Man's armor on fire, killing the Gremlin, much to Tony's dismay.

* Richard B. Riddick does this to the alien monsters as the survivors make their getaway at the end of ''Film/PitchBlack''.

* Richard B. Riddick does this to the alien monsters as the survivors make their getaway at the end of ''Film/PitchBlack''. He didn't need to, but he felt he needed to kill a few more on the way out and deliberately lured them in by shutting off the exterior lighting so they'd approach.

* In Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, one can upgrade the ship's engines with various gems. Beam and Metal will often add various offensive capabilities to one's thrust such as depositing caltrops or, in a literal example, having the thrust itself burn enemies.

* ''Disney/LiloAndStitch''. When Stitch boards Captain Gantu's ship to rescue Lilo, Gantu forces him off by turning his ship's thrusters so that both of them point directly at Stitch. Being fireproof, Stitch is fine but the force is still enough to fling him off the ship.
