Garlic Jr. uses this attack while in his base form during the Garlic Jr. Saga.

In Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug, Lord Slug uses this attack in base and Great Namekian forms, both against Goku; he uses it as part of his Power of Darkness attack while in his base form, and later upside-down while knocked over in his Great Namekian form.

In Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge, Cooler uses this attack, calling it his "Death Beam", in which he heavily damages Goku with just one attack.

In Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler, after Cooler is modified by the Big Gete Star, this attack is improved to the Lock-On Buster.

Similar attacks are used by Frieza and Super Buu in the manga/anime.
