* 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 ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'', ComicBook/{{Lobo}}'s super move involves him ramming his opponent with his Space Hog, making them fall behind and then burning them with the exhaust flames while giving them [[FlippingTheBird a sign of utmost respect]].

* 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.

** It's a good thing it was: he was standing directly on the glass (or similar material) container that Lilo was trapped inside, so the flames were hitting it too. If Gantu had kept that up, the container walls would have rapidly heated up, and Lilo is ''not'' fireproof.

* The first season finale of ''Series/The100'' had the titular group use the thrusters of their crashed DropShip as a last-chance attack to fend off a full-blown Grounder attack. Not only did the deluge of flames [[TrashTheSet completely incinerated the rest of the camp]], but also killed three hundred Grounders... [[FromBadToWorse which escalated things for a while because some of the Grounder leaders insisted that such a massacre was not something that could be taken lying down.]]

* In Palladium's {{Rifts}} sourcebook "Mechanoids", Overlords and Oracles (evil, building sized robots with a bend for human extermination) are packed full of weapons, but still like the elegant process of flying a few meters over unprotected humans. Crispy bacon.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/IlEtaitUneFois''... Space, a Cassiopeian soldier is burned to a crisp, but in an AmusingInjuries way, by the engines of the ship the protagonists use to escape.
* In an early episode of ''WesternAnimation/MegasXLR'', Coop ends up using the Megas' own exhaust to blot out the sun, draining the REGIS Mk-V of its power.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': In [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS2E10APrincessOnLothal "A Princess on Lothal"]], a cruiser's engines are used to knock over an AT-AT walker.

* For certain values of "exhaust", the morphers in ''PowerRangersRPM'' are said to sometimes create explosions due to [[{{Technobabble}} energy runoff]]. When Flynn uses ReversePolarity with his morpher when it's been malfunctioning, he realizes that the most likely side effect is a larger-than-normal explosion... which he deliberately aims at the villains.

* 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!]]
