* ''VideoGame/{{Downwell}}'': This is literally your primary form of attack, as you use gunboots to hover in the air while whatever you shot for the recoil to hover is used to kill stuff.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Broforce}}'', the Brocketeer's jetpack releases a burst of flame to either side of him when active, frying nearby mooks. This makes up for his terrible mobility on the ground and useless primary weapon.

*** While not shown on screen, Anakin claims Sebulba once did this to him during a podrace. In this case, it's an illegal mod that vents exhaust out the side of the pods at other racers.

* Attempted in the second book of Creator/BruceCoville's ''The A.I. Gang'' trilogy. The title characters have built a rocket and are preparing to launch it; however, two separate spies break into it for their own reasons. One is discovered by two of the kids, whom he knocks out, ties up and leaves to be incinerated by the rocket's exhaust. The other is discovered by a third member of the gang, who is knocked out and left inside the rocket; her efforts to signal for help lead to the launch being aborted by the rest of the gang, saving all three lives.

* At one point near the middle of ''VideoGame/MrRobot'', there's a shuttle inside the starship Eidelon. While it doesn't have enough fuel to go anywhere, you are able to burn what it has left, to destroy a bunch of enemy robots inside the hangar.

** Further Played straight with Robert Zubrin's Nuclear salt-water rocket. It mixes water with nuclear fuel salt, then feeds it through an engine that results in a an exhaust that is basically a ''continuous'' fission bomb. It has the holy grail of rockets: High thrust ''and'' high inefficiency. Just don't stand behind it. Or use it anywhere inside Earth's magnetic field.

* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' every [[RetroRocket rocket ship]] has rules that let the pilot use the radium fueled exhaust as an effective weapon. This tactic is also favoured by the [[HoverBoard rocket boarding]] gangs of New York.

* In Sergey Snegov's "The Men like Gods", the ships' FTL drive works on the principle of transforming spacetime into matter and running it in ''reverse'' turns matter into space. They can literally drop enemy ships into stars by removing the intervening space or evade attacks by adding it faster than the enemy or gunfire can approach. It also finds itself useful when the need to create a planet out of nothing rears its head.

** The Destroyants/Malignants, which has mastered gravity control to a great level, are also profound of this tactic, using gravity engines of their cruisers to generate destructive gravitational waves, which can then be used to attack enemy ships or turn planet's surface into the fine dust.
