[-[[caption-width-right:325:''Expectorate the rainbow'']]-]

Pretty much everyone can spit. Some of you can do so better than others. But can you spit one hundred meters? What about for miles? Wouldn't that be useful. What if you could spit copious amounts of liquid or corrosive materials? Or if your expectoration could ricochet precisely in unexpected directions with exceptional accuracy?

If you could do one, or even all, of those things, you'd have Super Spit.

The most common form of this trope is BulletSeed. Related tropes are BreathWeapon and MakeMeWannaShout. Supertrope to ZombiePukeAttack. Not to be confused with SpitefulSpit, which is not a weapon, but more of an insult.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Bit character Royakan, from ''Manga/{{InuYasha}}'', could spit ''live wolves''.
* The ''{{Mazinger}}'' series: Many {{Robeast}}s from ''Anime/MazingerZ'', ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' and ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' could spit gallons of acid, poison and other corrosive fluids. Sometimes it was a kind of gluey substance to paralyze or hinder the enemy. Examples abound: Mechanical Beasts Baras-K9, Gusios-β3... many of the War Beasts of the Mykene Reptilian army...
* In ''Franchise/OnePiece'' the Younger Boa sisters can spit poison and Chief Warden Magellan spits bubbles that explode into toxic gas. One of Arlong's luitanants could break trees by spitting water at high pressure. This probably also applies to Mr. 5, who could turn any part of his body into an explosive, but he usually just relied on his boogers.
* Giran's super hard gum in ''Manga/DragonBall'', Dabura's spittle [[TakenForGranite turned things to stone]].
* Nel in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' can heal wounds with her saliva, though she drools it instead of spitting.
** Actually that wasn't spit [[spoiler:it was her vomit]].
[[/folder]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live action TV]]
* On ''Series/{{Alphas}}'' an Alpha had the power to spit acid. He used this to blind his opponents in an underground fighting ring.
* Discussed in an episode of ''{{Seinfeld}}'' parodying Creator/OliverStone's film ''{{Film/JFK}}'', where Kramer & Newman think that Yankees player Keith Hernandez spit at them after a game.
-->'''Jerry:''' According to your story Keith passes you and starts walking up the ramp. Then you say you were struck on the right temple. The spit then proceeds to ricochet off the temple striking Newman between the third and forth rib. The spit then came off the rib turned and hit Newman in the right wrist causing him to drop his baseball cap. The spit then splashed off the wrist, pauses - in mid air mind you- makes a left turn and lands on Newman's left thigh. That is one [[MagicBullets magic loogie]].
* One ''Series/ArabianNights'' miniseries featured a ShapeshifterShowdown between dijin who transformed into camels and elephants to counter a dragon's fire breath.

[[folder:Other Sites]]
* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation''

[[folder:Pinball]]
* In the ''Pinball/JurassicPark'' pinball, the "Spitter Attack" mode has Nedry attacked by a Spitter dinosaur.

[[folder: Professional wrestling]]
* Brought to the business by the Great Kabuki, The Asian Mist (known as the poison fog in Japan) is a move in which a wrestler puts a liquid in their mouth either before or during a match and spray-spits it into their opponent's eyes. It's notable that this is based on a practice in some actual martial arts, where the liquid would be based on some spicy food that is tolerable in the mouth but not in the eyes. Many wrestlers who use it make a show of rubbing their throat before spitting the liquid, as if it is a venom extracted from some secret, extra gland.
** Commonly color-coordinated: green blinds, red burns, blue knocks out, yellow paralyzes, black (the rarest) is able to kill a person and purple ([[Wrestling/{{TNA}} most recent variation]]) causes memory loss. This is not always followed, though. In WWE, black just blinds longer and is harmless anywhere but the eyes, while in Ring Of Honor red is a poison that constricts the airway.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop games]]
* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' the Trolls have stomach acid strong enough to dissolve stone and steel, and will not hesitate to "pre-digest" you in battle. Most Trolls use this as a melee attack, which seems reasonable; then there's the Troll King, whose attack has the same range as a throwing axe. Projectile vomit, anyone?
** Lizardman [[WeaponizedAnimal Salamanders]] used to have an acid-spitting attack that [[CompetitiveBalance had the same range]] and SplashDamage as other races' ''artillery''. Recent editions have {{retcon}}ned this into a much shorter-ranged BreathWeapon and upped their speed and melee ability to compensate.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'':
** Many Tyranids sport bio-plasma attacks, which are basically vomiting hellfire.
** Some Daemons and Daemonhosts literally vomit hellfire. And if the Deamons are aligned to Nurgle, they just vomit. Of course their vomit is highly corrosive and will probably infect you with every nasty disease know to man (and a few we missed), but in the end of the day you died because a Daemon puked on you.
** Ork Weirdboyz sometimes do this, vomiting a stream of pure orky psionic energy that makes YourHeadASplode.
** Technically the Space Marines have this too; namely one of their various glandular implants makes their saliva highly acidic, and can be used either as a weapon or just to help break out of a place. Rarely represented any more in actual game mechanics, there are at least a couple of chapters whose glands mutated over the millenia to either let them spew out a full-on spray of the stuff, or whose saliva forms something other than acid (such as chemicals which, when mixed and spit, of course catch on fire).
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' really liked this trope.
** Spit acid: anhkheg (30 feet), black dragon (60 feet), copper dragon (70 feet), dracolisk (30 feet), giant slug (60 feet), hordling (10 feet), thessalhydra (30 feet).
** Spit lethal poison: giant spitting snake (30 feet), guardian naga (30 feet)
** Blinding spittle: camel (lasts 1-3 minutes), Cat Lord (until magically cured), krakentua (100 feet, lasts 24-72 seconds, [=OA7=] ''Test of the Samurai''), muckdweller (squirt stream of muddy water 10 feet), nereid (20 feet, 2-12 minutes).
** If it hits a hard, cold surface, a gibbering mouther's spittle will create a bright flare of light that can blind opponents for 1 minute.
** Soldier termites could spit an irritating substance similar to kerosene up to 10 feet away which could blind any creature for 5-20 minutes. If the fluid was ignited it could burn the target as well.
** ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'' magazine
*** #55 article "The Missing Dragons". The orange dragon could spit out a stream of liquid sodium. This was bad enough as is (it burst into flames when exposed to air), but if it was sprayed into water it caused a devastating explosion.
*** #91 article "Nine Hells Revisited". The greater devil Rumjal can spit a substance that will do 2-8 HitPoints of corrosive, tissue-eating damage to already-open wounds. He can only do so once in a three day period.
*** #184 article "Magic With An Evil Bite". The neogi spell "Spider Gout" allows the caster to spit out a glob of spider venom up to 10 yards away. Any creature struck by the glob takes 2-8 HitPoints plus 1 HitPoint per level of the caster up to ten.
*** #223 article "Dragons's Bestiary". The Spouter Gargoyle can spit acid with 5 foot range that does up to 40 HitPoints damage.
*** #223 article "Primal Rage" (based on the VideoGame ''VideoGame/PrimalRage''). The monster Vertigo can spit a glob of [[PoisonIsCorrosive poisonous acid]] up to 100 feet away. It affects a circular area with a radius of 20 feet, and causes up to 150 HitPoints of damage.
*** #237 article "Dragon's Bestiary - Venomous!" 40% of cobras can spit their venom up to seven feet away, aiming at their target's eyes. If the venom hits the eyes it starts to dissolve them [[PoisonIsCorrosive as if it were an acid]]. This causes blindness in 2-5 minutes unless the eyes are washed with water or some other liquid.
** There is a spell in D&D that allows a druid to blind her opponents with caustic goo. There are also two spells that allow the user to spit vipers.
** Spit poison: {{Ravenloft}} supplement ''Chilling Tales'', adventure "The Surgeon's Blade". The MadScientist Emil Bollenbach created a hybrid monster with the body of a hog and the head of a snake. It can spit poison up to 30 feet.
** Some dragons' [[BreathWeapon Breath Weapons]] come closer to this - for instance, Iron Dragons "breathe" molten iron.
** 4th edition dragon breath weapons are technically ''vomit'' weapons. The edition also adds the Dragonborn as a core PlayerCharacter race, who possess their namesakes' signature attack.
** More specifically, the ''Draconomicon'' teaches that the magical energy of a D&D dragon's breath weapon is stored in the stomach, not in the lungs; this is what is meant by "vomit weapon". The expelled effect is explicitly magical, though—it is mystical energy, and not a biological by-product as found in some other D&D creatures.
** Original D&D
*** Supplement I ''Greyhawk'' had a Symbiotic Dragon that could spit out Jellies, Oozes, Puddings and Slimes (Ochre Jelly, Gray Ooze, Black Pudding, Green Slime, etc.).
*** Supplement IV ''Gods, Demigods and Heroes''. In the Egyptian mythos section, the Winged Serpent can spit a contact poison that will go through armor up to 30 yards away.
** TabletopGames/{{Greyhawk}} setting. The deity Iuz can take the form of an old man. While in that form he can spit at creatures within 10 feet. If the spittle hits, it causes the victim to age 1-6 years and numbs the target area, rendering it unusable for 2-5 minutes. Clerics of Iuz can cast the spell Spittle, which allows the caster to spit a substance that has the same numbing effect on the area hit (but not aging).
** Mayfair Games' Role Aids supplement ''Dark Folk''
*** The troll deity Lirabyth can spit a deadly poisonous stream that paralyzes the victim as well as doing 10-80 HitPoints of damage due to its [[PoisonIsCorrosive caustic acid base]].

** It's an usual way to use weaponized {{nanomachines}} -- since they aren't very durable on their own, motile "nannies" are easily detected and fried, thus a swarm is produced inside some living host (not necessarily willing) and then projectively vomited toward the target from close range. So far this happened twice on-screen, and it looks about as bad as it sounds.
* Aisha from ''Webcomic/SlimyThief'' can spit out acid.
