Myths & Religion
- The bonnacon fends off its pursuers by ejecting flaming dung.
- This is one of the hazards Hercules faced in confronting the Stymphalian birds, whose feces were deadly-poisonous to touch.
- The rulebook for Warhammer 40,000 references this in the writeup for the "Moral Support (Get 'Im, Boss!)" melee combat rule. In the scenario, Gabriel Seth is challenged by an Ork Nob accompanied by a group of Boyz:
Drakka issues a challenge and Seth accepts. As Seth has no unit of his own to back him up, the Orks are busy cheering their boss on, throwing dung at Seth, and generally being off-putting.
- One of the explanations behind tea-bagging (squatting repeatedly on your kill's corpse) is the tea-bagger miming the action of taking a dump on the downed victim.
- Poshul, the time-traveling dog character in Chrono Cross, and one of her attacks which consists of kicking up a storm of "doggy doo."
- Ōkami has the Brown Rage technique, which explodes! There's also Golden Fury, its urine counterpart.

- Dark Souls has a Dung Pie item. Throwing it at an enemy is one of the few ways to inflict the ultra-damaging Toxic Standard Status Effect, making it something of a Lethal Joke Weapon.
- Throwing a Dung Pie, however, also builds up the players Toxic Meter, making it dangerous to spam repeatedly... mostly. It inflicts the toxic status effect, but drains health only about a fifth as fast as the toxic caused by Blowdart Snipers and you can only be affected by one type of toxic at once, so people going through Blighttown sometimes intentionally toxify themselves with Dung Pies.
- The Monster Hunter games have Dung Bombs that the player can throw at various monsters to ward them. It is typically best used when a Qurupeco is trying to imitate a call, or when another monster has you pinned - nobody likes having a monster chew their faces off.

- Schlock Mercenary has a character who was illegally genetically modified so that his bodily fluids and excretions were explosives. He is given privacy by the narrator in order to "Plant a Shaped Charge".
Major: It's as if the madman who modified him wanted to create not only an extremely dangerous mole agent, but also a perfect pun on the phrase "Secreted Weapons."
- In Flaky Pastry, the gang gets to fight an elemental Extrementor. "How can something made of feces move so fast?" "Diarrhea?"
- In one webcomic (does anyone remember the title?) the main character ridicules the newest Pokémon edition for giving the protagonist a flaming monkey as a starting "fire" choice... and gets bombarded with flaming turds by the insulted mon.

- Steven Seagal used something like this technique in a real fight backstage against Judo-expert Gene LeBelle: but involuntarily, when Gene chocked Seagal unconscious, causing Seagal to evacuate in his pants.

- "Dung showering" by hippopotamuses.
- At least some prisoners in highest-security prisons. (That's the only kind of weapon you can't take away from them.) Being a guard there sure ain't no fun job.
