* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory'', Kou gives Gato a face-full of his Gundam's maneuvering thrusters when locked in close combat. This doesn't actually damage Gato's Gundam, but it does blind and distract him. Fourteen years later in-universe, [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Marida Cruz]] does the same against a [[EliteMook Stark Jegan]], disorienting it long enough for her to promptly [[CombatPragmatist follow up with a]] [[LaserBlade beam saber]] [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown to the cockpit]].

* In ''Videogame/XRebirth'', the massive engines on capital ships deal damage to anything nearby when they are firing, doubly so when they [[NitroBoost kick in their afterburners]] for intra-system travel. However, the damaging range is low enough that it is extremely rare for it to damage anything other than the player's ship which is trying to blow up said engine. Ore refineries on space stations vent away excess heat when operating, and civilian craft attempting to pass another craft on the FuturisticSuperhighway lanes near stations may unwittingly pass through it and explode.

** The huge white clouds at a rocket launch during liftoff are not actually the rockets exhaust. They are created from massive amounts of water poured on the launch pad during launch, to keep the concrete floor from being roasted to ash.

* Due to him not being able to fly, ''DragonBallZ'' games that include [[FakeUltimateHero Hercule/Mr. Satan]] as a playable character give him a Jetpack to fight in the air. Some games allow him to use it as a weapon as well.

* In Sergey Lukyanenko's ''LineOfDelirium'' novel, the main characters are infiltrating/storming a military orbital platform. Upon receiving a coded signal, their ship, sitting in the hangar bay, uses it's gravity engine to "push out" the hangar bay doors and then activates the plasma engines to fry the combat droids guarding it.
* In ArthurCClarke's ''Earthlight'', the particle beam weapons are directly derived from spacecraft ion drives, which are dangerous enough in their own right.

* The Convair X-6 was a prototype of atomic-fueled bomber, which would have released so much radioactivity along its path as to make it a weapon itself. The project was closed as there was no way to reduce the emission when in friendly territory.
* Along the same lines, the [[FunWithAcronyms Supersonic Low Altitude Missile]] (also known as "The Flying Crowbar", or more formally [[http://www.merkle.com/pluto/pluto.html Project Pluto]]) would have been an unmanned nuclear-armed cruise missile with an unshielded nuclear ramjet leaving a deadly trail of fallout in its wake. Part of the plan was to have the SLAM run a pattern over the target country after it had delivered its bombs, intentionally irradiating the land.

** Kylo Ren's lightsaber in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' was crudely made based on an ancient, more primitive design, and requires crossguard-like stabilizer vents to redirect excess power from its crystal; as a result, the twin beams are just as dangerous as the main one, and he uses them to press against Finn's shoulder and burn him while their blades are locked.
